This is a very ambitious and possibly impossible task. However it seems to be taking shape in my mind, and as I have done throughout my writing on this Forum, I use this form to clarify, express and order my thoughts.
I can claim to do the same as Stephen Hawking, in principle. I can develop theories, then because of empirical work, can change my mind and admit some prior ideas were limited or flawed or wrong.
It is a question of degree perhaps. We may be partially right, but details may need further work and testing, and like the static universal idea of the CWB I, and others, had envisaged, that may have been an imperfect model (in our minds), impractical although we might have got 50% of the way on that journey.
So my focus shifted, for good reason to the microscopic view of the Column as a case for study.
It represents 12 numbers so is sufficiently loose and not too specific, and allows for slippage or tolerance or whatever quantum and cyclic metaphor you may like to apply. It pays 2 :1 so is quite forgiving and flat staking is enabled.
How can we target one column. First we have to look at two columns, or better still three columns and figure out what to do with Zero or worse, Double Zero.
I am all for simplicity but also am very fond of Zero. Because it is my favourite number/ non number, it manifests a lot around me and I seem to attract it ( we often joke at the tables - here comes Zero). Therefore it must be faced but why not turn a problem to an advantage. When I play any method I often carry an anchor bet and independent RB on Zero. Let'c call it the Zero Fund.
If your bet has sufficient edge and profit can be damaged by zero appearances, you can simply ignore it, write it off as a form of tax. That is what one of my Mentors did in his professional play. Nevertheless it seems a lost opportunity to me. Another way to look at it is to assimilate it into Finales Groupings or Wheel Section groupings.
and then formulate two of the 9 number sets to incorporate an overlap ( 10 numbers).
Again for example
C-D in Wheel Sections
11,30,8,23,10,(00) 5,24,16,33 - 1- 20,14,31,9,22,18,29,7,28
and incorporate number 1 as a deliberate overlap to either C or D.
In fact I love it when number 1 appears as that symbolises dead centre of a C-D cluster.
On the subject of Dr Hawking - I love it that he smashed the medical death sentence when they gave him 2 years left to live. What beat that? - The Power of Mind and his determination to explore, his curiosity, which ironically, although he would deny this, is a Divine attribute and gift, and a symbol, hint, or sign of Eternity.
What I admire about his recent statements is that they are not absolutes, and he allows the possibility of the unknown to be more known, but perhaps never ever fully known. That is Infinity.
This new thread will step by step examine some structure, characteristics that can be built, without use of technology at the table. However the power of research can be vastly accelerated knowing what we now know through computer power, but along with that research and compressed experience in the head, I also want to engage less tangible but still real forces to add to the power of this model.
Of course, in the end, it has to come out of the mental workshop, and has to be tested live.
My goal is to do this before end of this year, and travel on the Swiss Railways in 2017.
Notice also that although I am more familiar with 'cluster analysis' which is composed of three or more elements of two different types, in my definition, and that this is essentially a particle model, I also often talk of cycles, wheels within wheels, short cycles and long cycles. The short cycles may be 3-7 spin duration, and the longer up to thousands of spin outcomes for roulette.
Cycles are really waveforms, and wave analysis is another model form which can be utilise in our quest. As you know in Nature, ie the Universe, the material world ( for there are other worlds), waves for example on fluids on the surface of the planet, can 'travel' from one side of the Pacific Ocean (Peru) to the other ( New Zealand). Every few hundred years in recorded history tsunamis have traveled this path and in recent years we have seen the energy transferred from seismic action off the coast of Japan, literally impacting around the world. It is energy transfer.
On a subtle different scale the energy released in the generation of individual roulette spin numbers one following the other causes a frequency disturbance which can form a short cycle pattern ie wave, ie cluster, or noise without tuned signal.
That is why sometimes we need to pause and not 'play' ( ie attempt to 'trap' an outcome) every spin. However when you observe differing frequencies or clusters based on different sets, then outcomes may well overlap. That is why my Mentor, when playing at Jupiters Casino in Australia in the Private Members Club noted how fellow players at his table would groan as when he was playing with four sets, he would sometimes achieve wins on subsequent spins one after the other ( at peak amplitudes). Of course there is also the reverse cycle, and that needs to be handled also.
