### Clara B. Jones and Hamilton's Rule

The following piece was submitted to me by Clara B. Jones. I would classify this piece as an illustration of an equation.

In this piece we can see W.D. Hamilton's Rule expressing when it benefits "ego," an Actor, to help a Recipient, an individual of the same species. I designed the image, and the artwork was drawn by Liz Williams. I, also, include a brief bio. Thank you for considering my work. Sincerely, clara b. jones

Bio: Clara B. Jones is a retired scientist, currently practicing poetry in Asheville, NC, USA. As a woman of color, she writes about the “performance” of identity and power and conducts research on experimental poetry. She is the author of two chapbooks, and her poems, reviews, essays, and interviews have appeared or are forthcoming in numerous venues.

### The Pedagogy of Moonlight

There are four ways to solve this equation with each variable or you can set it up in proportions where it will read:

"Pining the Infinite" is to "Lost Mathematics" as "The Wind of Time" is to "Obscure Sorrow"

--OR--

"Pining the Infinite" is to "The Wind of Time" as "Lost Mathematics" is to "Obscure Sorrow"

Below is a detail of the equation:

### Jeff Koons Versus Kog

**This quote from Koons is the perfect statement about the goal of ‘pure’ Art. – And therefore the opposite of ‘pure’ Kog.**

**Mathematical poetry lives in the realm of ‘pure’ Kog**

**Mathematical visual poetry is in between ‘pure’ Art and ‘pure’ Kog yet lives much closer to ‘pure’ Kog.**

### Syncopation

Back in the early 1980's, inspired by the percussionist Bill Bruford, I wrote a math equation mapping the levels of power in syncopation. I have misplaced the equation but I do remember the resulting epiphany for me:

Anticipation and surprise are the active ingredients in syncopation. (Thesis / Antithesis)

### Newton's Third Law In Karmic Warfare

Newtons third law of motion states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. ——— see any similarities? ——— The visual expression (above) titled “Newton’s third law in Karmic warfare” maps a karmic event into equal and opposite forces.

The following LINK will take you to my paper on paradigm poems that will go into more detail of this piece. Here is an excerpt from the paper that discusses this piece:

**Newton’s Third Law in Karmic Warfare**

**Mappings**

Metaphor from Physics: The Equation from Physics that describes equivalent forces IS Observations of equivalent forces

Poetic Metaphors: Mirror IS Conservation of Momentum and Energy; Mirror IS Equivalence; Karma IS Equivalence; Karma IS Mirror

Mathematical Poetic metaphors M1 or Mass (subscript 1) IS The Level Of My Self Righteousness; △v1 or The change in velocity (subscript 1) IS Me Taking Life From You; △t1 or The change in time (subscript 1) IS The Time It Takes For Me To Kill You; M2 or Mass (subscript 2) IS The Level Of Your Self Righteousness; △v2 or The change in velocity (subscript 2) IS Me Taking Life From You; △t2 or The change in time (subscript 2) IS The Time It Takes For You To Kill Me;

Visual (image) Metaphors: Nuclear Proliferation IS Karmic Force; Karma IS Hell; Korean Karma Mirror IS a vehicle
