The Torus Code : Nature’s Fundamental Pattern

Reposted from Rising Life Media

torus field in space
Nature appears to rely on one core recurring pattern to evolve life at every scale – the torus. It is a donut shaped energy vortex that you can see everywhere from atoms to galaxies and beyond.
The torus is nature’s way of creating and sustaining life and it can serve as a template for sustainability. Knowledge of the pattern is already advancing fan and propeller technologies, powering clean, “new energy” devices, informing non-violent self defense, and helping us better understand the nature of the “unified field.”
“Looking back on almost half a century of research, including thousands of books, films, interviews with experts from diverse fields, if I were to pick one common denominator to all the facets of my quest, it would be the TORUS, the fundamental energy pattern that invites our alignment at every level of our existence for us to survive and thrive.” – Foster Gamble
 The Torus
The torus, or primary pattern, is an energy dynamic that looks like a doughnut – it’s a continuous surface with a hole in it. The energy flows in through one end, circulates around the center and exits out the other side.
You can see it everywhere – in atoms, cells, seeds, flowers, trees, animals, humans, hurricanes, planets, suns, galaxies and even the cosmos as a whole.
Scientist and philosopher, Arthur Young, explained that a torus is the only energy pattern or dynamic that can sustain itself and is made out of the same substance as its surroundings – like a tornado, a smoke ring in the air, or a whirlpool in water.
The torus also applies at the human level. Each person not only is a torus – our bodies are a continuous surface (skin) with a hole through the middle (intestinal tract) – but we are each surrounded by our own toroidal electro-magnetic field.
Each individual’s torus is distinct, but at the same time open and connected to every other in a continuous sea of infinite energy.
It is the same energy field you can feel with a magnet. It is usually invisible, but by scattering iron filings loosely around a magnet you can actually see the toroidal shape of energy.
Double Torus
Most torus dynamics actually contain two toruses – called “tori” – like the male and female aspects of the whole – one spiraling one direction toward the north pole and its opposite spinning toward the South pole. This is also referred to as the “Coriolis” effect. Examples are the weather on the earth and the plasma flow of the sun.
The “VE” – Vector Equilibrium
The underlying structure of the torus is the Vector Equilibrium, or “VE.” It is the blueprint by which nature forms energy into matter. Buckminster Fuller, one of the 20th Century’s most prolific inventors, coined the term Vector Equilibrium. He named it this because the “VE” is the only geometric form where all forces are equal and balanced. The energy lines (vectors) are of equal length and strength. They represent the energy of attraction and repulsion, like you can feel with a magnet.
You can’t actually observe the “VE” in the material world because it is the geometry of absolute balance. What we experience on Earth is always expanding toward and contracting away from absolute equilibrium. Like a wave arising from the surface of a tranquil sea, a material form is born (unfolds) from the plenum (fullness) of energy (ironically referred to by physicists as “the vacuum”) and dies (enfolds) back into it.
The VE is like the imaginable – yet invisible – mother of all the shapes and symmetries we see in the world.
The Phi Spiral
In order for the pattern to show up at every scale, there must be a way for organisms to grow while maintaining proportion among their parts. There is one spiral vortex in nature that accomplishes this. It’s called the phi spiral and can be seen as everything comes into form, from tiny ferns to giant galaxies.
The Phi Double Spiral

The phi spiral in one direction will often be seen counterbalanced with another one in the opposite direction – called the Phi Double Spiral.
This double spiral creates natural boundaries. For example, it matches up perfectly with the human eye as you can see in this picture. The pupil appears to be colored in with green and the iris appears to be outlined, but that’s actually the natural overlapping of the lines from the phi double spiral.
How it All Fits Together
When you put all three aspects of the pattern together – the torus, the VE, and Phi spirals – you end up with one whole pattern that looks like this:

It makes sense that the torus shows up at every scale, because we seem to live in a fractal universe. “Fractal” means that the same patterns are repeated at all scales, whether you look through a microscope or a telescope. When you look at a small part of a fractal, it has a similar appearance to its full shape. Mountain ranges, river beds, plants and lightning discharges are familiar examples.
Applications of the Pattern
What are some of the ways knowledge of the pattern is being applied?
“Our crisis is a birth. We are one living system and we have come to the limit of one phase of natural growth on a finite planet… We must learn ethical evolution quickly… As we seek to facilitate a gentle birth, a graceful and nonviolent transition to the next stage of our evolution, we will discover a natural pattern, a design of our birth transition, and develop a plan to cooperate with this design.”
- Barbara Marx Hubbard
 Fan and Propeller Technologies
Pax Scientific has patented the application of the phi spiral for translating “nature’s flow efficiencies into streamlined design geometries.” The result is more efficient and effective technologies such as fans, turbines, pumps, and more.
A small phi-design propeller is able to circulate a million gallon water storage tank in the form of a torus. This avoids temperature stratification and stagnation and minimizes the need for chemical additives. All this for 200-300 watts, the amount of power it takes to run 3 or 4 light bulbs!
“New Energy” Devices
Many “New Energy” technologies are based on the pattern – they mimic the torus in order to tap energy from the space around us. Free energy inventor, Adam Trombly, explains that his device creates a dynamo with energy pouring through the center and creating a magnetic field, like the torus.
Ashok Gangadean uses the torus to blend the philosophies of East and West, transcending the old worldview where we are all just isolated entities. Ashok found the torus to be the first accurate scientific model that shows how each of us is a distinct individual, but also completely interconnected to all existence.
Non-violent Self Defense
The non-violent martial art of Aikido is a philosophy with a physical expression. It recognizes the wholeness of the pattern that each individual is – and blends with that energy to neutralize aggression without having to inflict injury.
“Aikido means “the way of harmony with life energy.” Its founder, Morihei Ueshiba, said:
“Aikido is not a technique to fight and defeat an enemy. It is a way to reconcile the world and make human beings one family.”
Ueshiba also said if you want to understand Aikido, you need to mimic the movements of atoms and galaxies, in other words – to flow with the fundamental pattern of life energy.
The same way free energy inventors blend with the pattern to access greater energies, Aikido blends with and re-directs the movement of an attacker to resolve conflict.
Collaborative Tools for Organizations
Just as it takes a minimum of twelve spokes to stabilize a hub on a bicycle wheel, or a ball in space as depicted in this sculpture by Buckminster Fuller, twelve ‘Sectors’ cover all the major spheres of human activity.
THRIVE’s 12 around 1 “Sector Navigator”– based on the Vector Equilibrium – promotes comprehensive whole systems thinking. This helps to keep our awareness on the critical interdependence of sustainable solutions.
Many organizations are now using process tools based on the pattern. The following is a sampling of organizations, in addition to Clear Compass Media, who are also using a 2D or 3D version of the 12-around-1 model:
