The Synectic Codex expands the definition of what an NFT can be as a work of art.
Hidden in the Codex are layer upon layer of imagery, words, equations, and
memes used to hand-render artwork in an ever-evolving interactive experience.
The Codex delivers an intriguing depth of knowledge through a series
of Seven Levels. Each level expands the series with new layers adding to its
complexity and evolution.
The Codex provides the participant a transformative experience to explore a world where elegant mathematics meets mysticism, where art and ancient history combines with esoteric futurism.
The Codex is where all things are possible.
The community we build together, will shape the future direction of the project with a built-in royalty going to fund charitable foundations worldwide.
SYNECTICS is a method of creative thinking.
A CODEX is a book or collection of pages.
From the Codex, the collection of Fine Art Non-Fungible-Tokens, aka NFTs are formed.
The Codex is an experience that is revealed through seven levels.
Each level is a limited edition of NFTs. When you purchase your first NFT you are part of the community and can level-up by acquiring more pieces in the collection.
Each piece in the collection is a hand-rendered, original composition
by master painter and artist Edward Lentsch.

The first algorithm is a 10x10 grid where I place the 8x8 grid as the foundation of the Codex. There so may things that this represent: The I Ching /Book of Changes
(the basis of Confucianism) a chess board, the Ashpaka...
What is so fascinating as it relates to a TOE is how these basic principles are the elemental building blocks of the universe. Fast forward a couple of thousand years and we are using "QR" codes. How do they work and how does this relate to the I Ching or Moore's Law?
Then consider how Moore’s Law factors in. Remember the first computer was only four megabytes, then 8, then the first 64 MB later 64gb nano tech, micro tech all relevant to this algorithm we find not only in nature but what Carl Jung called the Collective Consciousness of man. What does a cryptopunk NFT and a QR Code have in common?
They both use the same attributes of a grid that has followed science and mathematics through thousand of years in human expression both mathematics and our symbols.
Our symbiology reflects both the strings of this ever-evolving equation in nature and the evolution of our interpretation.
Building a new layer set superimposed upon the initial grid I begin to transform a linear pattern into a polylinear progression. I introduce the Fibonacci Sequence, The Vitruvian Man and other attributes adding to the overall complexity and aesthetics..
At the forefront of the math is the “Magic Square” and the algorithm of why each level has an integral relationship to the other levels. There are many versions visually explaining the Fibonacci sequence but the Codex makes a pipeline to how they relate to N-37 in physics and how we define infinity mathematically.
The Golden Ratio weaves through all life both in our nature as human beings, our perceptions of balance and harmony; music, art and math, it is the foundational principle in art and design. The golden ratio exists everywhere and all around us.
The symbol PHI is essential ingredient and attribute for a TOE. Using The Penrose Diagram as an attribute, is a significant example of a milestone in understanding the hidden complexities of the matrix.
I developed the original XOI Principle from a vision that appeared to me one day while looking at the Golden Ratio and the Vitruvian Man in the notebooks of Leonard Da Vinci and while examining the Fibonacci Sequence I came across something similar to what I later discovered, the Baryon Decuplet, further discovering Isospins and Quark Models.
The XOI Matrix is a key part of my Theory of Everything. The XOI in this case sets the basis for evolving the images with new variable color. The XOI Grid as I like to call it, is the transformation of the Fibonacci Sequence as a deterministic linear model into a polylinear matrix.
Substituting RGB for XOI --I intuitively generate Primary, Secondary and Tertiary color patterns with specific algorithms. Random yet deterministic in their outcomes. The XOI grid also applied as Black, White (or transparent) and Mid-tones adds yet another variable for the layer sets.
As the Tenth number of Fibonacci Sequence and what is known as the sign of the "Double Dragon," this number is also the foundation of the "XOI Principle" as the triangular grid of the XOI matrix starts at 1 or "X" and ends at the tenth line of ten components with XOI in three corners. All of the rows add up to 55 and this sets another matrix for the "tetrahedron" what most physicist's believe to be the building block of a TOE (Theory of Everything.).
In this fourth manifestation of the Genesis Block we move
past Fibonacci and the XOI Principle to Galileo’s Pendulum experiments.
Early in his career, he researched the characteristics of their motion. All pendulums eventually come to rest with the lighter ones coming to rest faster. The period is independent of the bob weight. The period is independent of the amplitude. 89 is significant as it is the 11th number in the Fibonacci Sequence and derivative of the original 1+11 Gen-blocks. In addition the significance of the number 89 becomes more clear as the base prime number and multiplier of the Opus Prime as described below.
In the fifth metamorphoses we unlock 165 layers of the codex revealing memes, equations and words as semitransparent elements embedded on the first four generations of images. These assets are sourced from years of research searching for words, equations and memes that define a high self-concept creating an overlapping grid of knowledge further evolving the Synectic theme.
Equations are now added, a key factor referencing "In the Pursuit of the Unknown: The Seventeen Equations that Changed the World." by Ian Stewart.
The 7 Millennium Equations complete the layers hidden within the codex.
Richard Feynman once said that everyone in science should have the number "137" on a sign hanging on a wall. For the 6th Gen (137 total NFTs) I have placed the number 137 in a different location in each individual NFT.
The Tree of Life is part of the ancient question of how does the universe work and how do human beings evolve to their maximum potential? Arabic, Persian, Judeo-Christian, Indian and even ancient Mesopotamia shows the Assyrian tree of life was represented by a series of nodes and crisscrossing lines.
The Epic of Gilgamesh is a similar quest for immortality. In Mesopotamian mythology, Etana searches for a ‘plant of birth’ to provide him with a son. This has a solid provenance of antiquity, being found in cylinder seals from Akkad (2390–2249 BCE).
From this cradle of civilization’s roots, I unveil the “Flower of Life” and it’s meaning in the 21st century introducing the final layers of my palimpsest as a Theory of Everything.
Inspired by the work of Christopher Hills and his books The Golden Egg and Nuclear Evolution: Discovery of the Rainbow Body combined with my personal experience in auric healing and chromotherapeutic research I unlock the final key to longevity and cellular rejuvenation.
The Seventh Chakra goes beyond the known to what is unknown in the realms of serendipity, clairvoyance, noetic science, and human technologies yet to be achieved. It’s intention and aspiration is to explain a new vison for human evolution to reach its ultimate manifestation as both ethereal and intangible.
The Synectic Codex is an Ars Magna and a palimpsest --a layered creation of infinite depth and proportion encompassing the essence of everything I know and everything that I am as an artist and the path of a polymath.
The eighth level “The Opus Prime” is our moonshot crescendo to use advanced computer modeling and AI to generate a last and final edition in the series. One such idea is 17,711 unique non-fungible artwork tokens created with AI from a deterministic polylinear sequence directly from the layered assets embedded in the codex. 17711 or F22 as it’s known is the 22nd number of the Fibonacci sequence.
The prime factorization of 17,711 are two prime numbers, 89 × 199. Since it has a total of 2 prime factors, 17,711 is a composite number. At the center of the Seven Levels sits the 89 original renderings of the Galileo’s Pendulum series, levels 1,2,3 and 7 added together equals 199 layers. When multiplied by 89 we arrive at the Opus Prime.
The philanthropic mission of the Synectic Codex is to be an innovative source of crowdfunding with a built-in royalty from the NFTs going to fund charitable foundations worldwide.
I see the evolution of an idea that’s time has come for new initiatives that will forever change the world of humanitarianism. This ideal is becoming more commonly shared among many and is gaining momentum to create a singular groundbreaking force for arts-driven philanthropy around the world.
I anticipate a significant positive social impact for the enhancement of the public wellbeing and community, as well as a solid contribution to other areas of global development.
