Well, it turns out
we have word from the Dr. himself!!
The original post from WallRace is in
brackets,
while Dr. Burisch's comments follow each bracketed quote.
[He drew four U shapes )V^( in a
cross shape, with the opening away from the center. He said that the remote
viewers/intuitives had been seeing and drawing this shape. He looked at me
and said, "magnets" as if he was giving me a hint for a possible
breakthrough by someone, but did not pursue that thread with me any further.
He said he got to looking at that shape and saw that it created a German cross looking shape if you draw lines connecting the opposite
ends of the Us. One section of this makes the shape of what he called
the "Olphanic stargate."]
I mentioned the Cross
Branchee and the Assistant Director the Maltese Cross. Indeed the
Sri
Yantra and the so called Ophanic Stargate drawings fit well.
[Sterling´s notes/sketches from Dan´s sketches/comments 
He then said he took some Qtips and glued them together into the shape of
an octahedron, and started moving it around in different
orientations, and said that if you shine a light through the octahedron in a
particular orientation (which he said would be obvious), that the shadow
creates the "Olphanic Stargate" shape. He then talked about
(by allegory?) that the same phenomenon applies in our DNA,
that there is a spiritual reality that (sort of?) resides in a
(side dimension?).]
This is, in fact, what
I had to do, for before the last week you wouldn't spend the money necessary
to get me what I needed.
[When he was done explaining this, he was like a child that had just
discovered the most incredible thing. He looked at me to see if I "got it,"
but I think he got more of a "I wish I did, but I'm not sure I followed all
that." It seemed like a lot of leaps to me without understanding one step to
the next of his flow of logic.  I imagine we'll be hearing more from him
on that one.]
I guess I have to tell you this early, J. The flow of logic was: from
RV
to drawing: The dots were connected and that formed a 3D structure. Drawing
to Geometry: the original drawing's form was rotated, spatially, to
determine what it would look like from other angles, then positively matched
to the shapes of the
Sri Yantra and the Ophanic Stargate drawings. Further,
light passing through the octahedron provides a shadow that perfectly
overlaid. This created a transitive logic sequence: If A=B and B=C, then
A=C. We now have a positive match for the metaphysical relationship between
the Sri Yantra, a platonic solid, the same solid's 3D form, and the
Ganesh
Particles (as they maximize entry to our world via an octahedral crystal
from from aquartzafterbquartz). We are but shadows of reality. Indeed we
are the shadow figures in Plato's Cave.
This will be fully delineated in the
model, as well as the remaining 4 platonic solid's relationships
In a visit by WallRace
and Haardrawk with Dr. Burisch and B.J. Wolf on
approximately 04/04/2004, Dr. Burisch mentioned an "Olphanic
Stargate". Note well that the only real reference to the root word "olphan"
I could find is that it is an antiquated form of the word "orphan".
For information purposes, "orphan" is derived from the Latin
root "orbus". This may or may not be Dr. Burisch's
basis for the "new to me" (and
www.dictionary.com) word "olphanic".
Anyhow, the drawing of four parabolic shapes with each successive vertex at
90º intervals around a circular path creates a shape similar to the
following:
Figure 1  "U's
Shape"; Note that the red and blue lines are just guidelines for what was
mentioned next.
It was mentioned that
you could connect the "...opposite ends of the Us..."
(WallRace post in DBCBv5 thread @ GLP [04/07/04 
05:40am EDT]) to form a "German Cross" like shape.
While it is possible to
connect the "right endpoint" of one parabola to the "left endpoint"
of the next until all "endpoints" are connected to achieve a similar
shape depicted by the red lines above, I chose the above way to
depict the "German Cross". A "German Cross" from the WWI era is
depicted right.

Cross" from the WWI era

octahedron 
Next, WallRace
quoted Dr. Burisch as stating that
"One section of this
makes the shape of what he called the 'Olphanic Stargate'."
I am not entirely sure
which section that is, but I hope that some of you out there can
provide some insight for me.
It was then mentioned that an octahedron, depicted in Figure 3 left,
was made out of QTips by Dr. Burisch for experimentation
purposes.

Note that an octahedron can be
any shape with eight sides. I am making the assumption Dr. Burisch is
referring to a "regular octahedron" which is depicted in
Figure 3. Other examples of octahedrons include "...the regular octahedron,
truncated tetrahedron, triangular cupola, hexagonal prism, sevensided
pyramid, square dipyramid, triangular antiprism, and boat."
(http://mathworld.wolfram.com/Octahedron.html)
Dr. Burisch was quoted as having mentioned that this QTip octahedron
could be projected upon a surface (a 2D representation) in such a manner
that it would represent the same "Olphanic Stargate".
Below
are some possible projections of an octahedron into the 2nd Dimension.
Figure 4  An octahedron
projected into the 2nd Dimension in four different configurations.
Again, I cannot clearly see the
correlation, and would ask that any ideas be thrown my way, please. Though I
thought it was interesting to note that the depicted "German Cross"
and the octahedronal projection into 2D of a shape reminiscent of "The
Star of David" are found in this same exercise.
I used to have access to magnetic/electric field modeling programs that
would be able to handle the "UGates" shape (assuming the
shapes modeled would be regular horseshoe magnets) to see if Dr. Burisch's
mention of "magnets" had any relevance to the magnetic field
modeled. Alas, I no longer have access to university labs and do not have
the $30,000 for the software myself.
