BiPartisan Dissonance When oppositional cognitive dissonance deflects focus, it tends to go back to when I deflected focus from her.
Dodecaorthogonal Space Poem A few days ago, Pablo Kagioglu shared a power point presentation that he made in where he had constructed a verbogeometric coordinate system, which displays 12 contiguous orthogonal space poems that share a common axis system.
This is important for what I see him having done is creating is a crystal-like dodecaorthogonal space poem! He has shown us another beautiful mathematical poetic structure. Now I must say that his philosophy may be controversial and I have to admit that I find some of the poems a bit problematic.
However, I really am not interested in critiquing what he has said. What I find extremely important here is that he has discovered a new mathematical poetic form that we all can use, build upon or do what ever our creative hearts desire.
Furthermore, I want to congratulate him on doing so! As I said, I am not going to analyze his content I am going to post it just as he sent it to me. He has graciously allowed me to post the following for everyone to enjoy.
Planes of Truth and Perception by Pablo Kagioglu As I have become more interested in what goes on around the world, I have also become somewhat frustrated by the actual lack of true information available; this in a world that is literally flooded with news. Long ago there were only Newspapers, then Radio came along, then Television.
Each time adding the medium more immediacy to the availability of information, but not necessarily more relevant content.
So, in the age of hour news channels, it is amazing how miss informed most people are about important world events… I have traveled around Europe and the Americas quite bit, and listened to the opinions of many people, watched their newscasts, read their newspapers.
On occasion, I was asked about my own opinions, and as I gave my opinions I slowly came to this realization: In the end most people sit around and argue because some drew a House while others drew a Pyramid, when it reality it is probably neither.
So, I wondered if Truth and Perception could be plotted in a 3-dimensional space somehow, using various concepts as the 3 axes. Words pairs that come to mind are:noun.
a numeral or group of numerals. the sum, total, count, or aggregate of a collection of units, or the like: A number of people were hurt in the accident. The number of . To up the mathematical content of your poem, you can choose a poetry form that already relies on mathematical principles, such as a diamante, which has a diamond shape: seven lines, containing respectively one, two, three, four, three, two and one words.

Writing a poem is no exception.
Before you begin, ask yourself what you want your poem to “do.” Do you want your poem to explore a personal experience, protest a social injustice, describe the beauty of nature, or play with language in a certain way?
Once your know the goal of your poem, you can conform your writing to that goal. Fun math poems for elementary school!
