Manifest Natural Precedence for Accelerating Expansion:
('It's the Water')
Very much on the order of 360 degree arcs of ripples (or pie plate chartedportions thereof) emanating from the center -disturbance point on the surface of a pool of water. The newer, earlier ripples not only expandinG, but also
accelerating. Moving ever more swiftly; with the aging development of distancefrom center source of disturbance. Not only is qualified continuoS expansioN,colloquially and precisely found here (on the surface of water), but also acceleration. A ubiquitous, natural systemic emergence of an expanding; accelerating system. Laymen often flatly deny acceleration of expanding water ripples: they are wrong

Telluric Screw and Law of Octaves:
periodic law.,5716,56975+1,00.html
Newlands, John Alexander Reina b. Nov. 26, 1837, London, Eng.
d. July 29, 1898, London
British chemist whose "law of octaves" noted a pattern in the atomic
structure of elements with similar chemical
properties and contributed in a significant way to the development of the Newlands studied at the Royal College of Chemistry, London, fought as a
volunteer under Giuseppe Garibaldi for Italian
unification (1860), and later worked as an industrial chemist. In 1864 he
published his concept of the periodicity of the
chemical elements, which he had arranged in order of atomic weight. He
pointed out that every eighth element in this
grouping shared a resemblance and suggested an analogy with the intervals of
the musical scale. The "law of octaves,"-"not to mention I like musical
thus enunciated, was controversial at first but later was recognized as an
important generalization in modern chemical
theory. Newlands collected his various papers in On the Discovery of the
Periodic Law (1884). A short history of the periodic table.;redir=
The rectangular periodic table is familiar to anybody who has ever been in a
science laboratory or classroom. This ingenious functional
grouping of the chemical elements was created by several European scientists
in the decade of the 1860's. In 1863, a 44 year old French
geologist, A. E. Béguyer de Chancourtois created a list of the elements
arranged by increasing atomic weight. The list was wrapped
around a cylinder so that several sets of similar elements lined up, creating
the first ""geometric"" representation of the periodic law.
""The telluric screw idea makes sense if your after a warp core-bkparque""
In England, 32 year old analytical chemist John A. R. Newlands was also
wrapping the elements, noting that chemical groups repeated
every eight elements. He named this the octave rule, and compared it to a
musical scale. Some less observant members of the English
Chemical Society considered this absurd, so his work was ignored for years. Chemists Dmitrii I. Mendeleev, a Russian, and German Lothar Meyer were working
independently in 1868 and 1869 on the
arrangement of elements into seven columns, corresponding to various chemical
and physical properties. Their tables were similar - they
acknowledged each other's work - the differences are subtle but important:
Meyer's table was an accurate (for the time) accounting of the
known facts about each element, such as melting point and atomic volume. The
table clearly showed the existence of periodic chemical
families. In 1870 Meyer's table and description of the periodic law was
published in Liebig's Annalen. A year earlier however, the 35 year old Mendeleev presented a much bolder and
scientifically useful table. His paper, On the Relation of
the Properties to the Atomic Weights of the Elements, was enthusiastically
received by the Russian Chemical Society. In it, the periodic
relationship between chemical groups, that is, elements with a similar
stoichiometry of reaction, is clearly illustrated. In a scientific
triumph, gaps in the table accurately predicted undiscovered elements.
Béguyer de Chancourtois in 1862 was the first
person to make use of atomic weights to reveal
periodicity. He drew the elements as a continuous
spiral around a cylinder divided into 16 parts. The
atomic weight of oxygen was taken as 16 and
used as the standard against which all others
were compared. Chancourtois noticed that certain
of the triads appeared below one another in his
spiral. In particular the tetrad oxygen, sulphur,
selenium and tellurium fell together, and he called
his device the “telluric screw”.
The atomic weights of these elements are
16,32,79 and 128, respectively, and quite
fortuitously they are multiples or near multiples, of
16. Other parts of the screw were less successful.
Thus boron and aluminium come together all right
but are then followed by nickel, arsenic,
lanthanum and palladium. Chancourtois had
discovered periodicity, but had got the frequency
wrong. Not bad for a non - chemist - he was a
