Here is a glossary. Use it to understand the meaning of the terminology used in a Unified Theory of a Law


The acme of the Triangle of a Law is the perch from which a Lawmaker despises conduct flowing from a Source to a Recipient through circumstances at the base below. It is the top of the Triangle of a Law . Below at the corners of the base are a Source doing conduct and a Recipient receiving conduct.


Conduct is affirmative when its flow is on.


The base of the Triangle of a Law is where the facts are located. The optimal arrangement of the facts in A Unified Theory of a Law is as conduct flowing from a Source to a Recipient through circumstances. At he base of the Triangle of a Law , the Source doing conduct is at one end and at the other end is a Recipient receiving conduct. The conduct flows from a Source to a Recipient through circumstances.

Benefit and burden

Conduct flowing from a Source to a Recipient through circumstances can carry to a Recipient benefits and burdens. A Recipient has a right when a Lawmaker wants a Recipient to receive conduct regardless of whether the conduct carries a benefit or a burden to the Recipient. In other words, the factual benefit or burden of a flow of conduct is irrelevant to the definition of a command, duty, right, permission, privilege (no-duty) and no-right. A Lawmaker who wants a Recipient to receive conduct carrying horrible consequences still bestows a right upon the Recipient.


Binding occurs when a Lawmaker gives one of the four tokens - a duty, a privilege (no-duty), right or no-right - to a Source or to a Recipient. Think of a general pinning a medal onto the tunic of a soldier.


Circumstances are the facts that surround a flow of conduct from a Source to a Recipient. They are the context in which conduct flows. Conduct flows through them.


A command is a vehicle that carries a Lawmaker's opinion to the citizenry. It is used when the focus of a Lawmaker is broad upon all of the conduct flowing from Source to Recipient through circumstances. It is synonymous with a duty and a right, which are vehicles used when a Lawmaker narrows her focus. A command, duty and a right are the three vehicles of Regulation. It means that a Lawmaker holds a desire for affirmative conduct or a Lawmaker holds a desire for negative conduct.


At one end of a flow of conduct is a Source; at the other end is a Recipient. In short, conduct has two ends. This is mirrored in a Court by a Plaintiff and a Defendant. The Defendant is the Source and the Plaintiff is the Recipient. Conduct flows. It is the thoughts, words and deeds that flow from a Source to a Recipient through circumstances. The flow of conduct has the property of polarity. It is either flowing or not flowing. When the flow of conduct is on, the conduct is affirmative. When the flow of conduct is off, the conduct is negative. Conduct also possess the property of direction. The flow of conduct is mono-directional. It always flows from a Source to a Recipient. The Source is upstream; the Recipient downstream. When we talk about a particular instance of conduct, we use the gerundial form of the verb e.g. driving.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
