1. THE GEOMETRY OF EVANGELII GAUDIUM The love of Jesus:the radicalsolutionto the challenges of the world Carlos E. Puente University of California, Davis Ateneo Pontiﬁcio Regina Apostolorum Rome, March 2014

2. Thesis We humans, with a soul, may learn from recent advancements regarding the geometry of natural complexity in order to ﬁll our hearts with the joy of the Gospel and take the mission to share the good news in a renewed fashion…

3. Pythagorean theorem c b a

4. A game for kids 70% 30%

5. A game for kids 70% 30%

6. A game for kids 70% 30% …

7. A game for kids 1 1 1 1 2 1 1 3 3 1 … the game deﬁnes a multiplicative cascade

8. The cascade, twelve levels later

9. The cascade, twelve levels later intertwined thorns via layers having distinct densities

10. The cascade, twelve levels later intertwined thorns via layers having distinct densities ultimate support on each of the layers is dust

11. The cascade, twelve levels later intertwined thorns via layers having distinct densities ultimate support on each of the layers is dust … the game generates a multifractal

12. The cascade, twelve levels later intertwined thorns via layers having distinct densities ultimate support on each of the layers is dust … the game generates a multifractal it is hard to walk …

13. Another game for kids

14. Another game for kids

15. Another game for kids • cascadeyields equal disjoint thorns over dust

16. Another game for kids • cascadeyields equal disjoint thorns over dust • varying the holesize gives topologically the layers on ﬁrst game

17. Another game for kids • cascadeyields equal disjoint thorns over dust • varying the holesize gives topologically the layers on ﬁrst game • …the two games are intimately related

18. Accumulated masses of clay is total modeling clay from 0 to

19. Accumulated masses of clay • ... following the dynamics: • notches above: etc. • plateaus below: etc.

20. Accumulated masses of clay cumulative sets have no derivativesat many points and are locally ﬂat

21. Accumulated masses of clay • cumulative sets have no derivativesat many points and are locally ﬂat • and same maximallength if

22. Accumulated masses of clay • cumulative sets have no derivativesat many points and are locally ﬂat • and same maximallength if • when combining the games and adding randomness

23. A veritable deception

24. A veritable deception

25. A veritable deception a devil’s staircase…

26. Turbulence and the ﬁrst game (Meneveau and Sreenivasan, 1987) eddies

27. Turbulence and the ﬁrst game (Meneveau and Sreenivasan, 1987) eddies • layers in one-dimensional turbulence as in ﬁrst cascade for

28. Turbulence and the ﬁrst game (Meneveau and Sreenivasan, 1987) eddies • layers in one-dimensional turbulence as in ﬁrst cascade for • dissipation:atmospheric, boundary layer, wake of a cylinder…

29. Turbulence and the ﬁrst game (Meneveau and Sreenivasan, 1987) eddies • layers in one-dimensional turbulence as in ﬁrst cascade for • dissipation:atmospheric, boundary layer, wake of a cylinder… universal

30. Our turbulent times

31. Our turbulent times inequities competition cynicism discriminations forced equality fear

32. Our turbulent times inequities competition cynicism discriminations forced equality fear selﬁshpostures and actions

33. Our turbulent times inequities competition cynicism discriminations forced equality fear selﬁshpostures and actions …of the world under poverty kids diea day for lack of water violenceand terror…

34. An optimal system? 5, 10, 20 and 40% largest thorns have 57, 70, 84 and 95% of the mass

35. An optimal system? 5, 10, 20 and 40% largest thorns have 57, 70, 84 and 95% of the mass quite close to the United States: 59, 71, 84 and 95%

36. An optimal system? 5, 10, 20 and 40% largest thorns have 57, 70, 84 and 95% of the mass quite close to the United States: 59, 71, 84 and 95% … as both cascades dissipatethe energy, if we ride them, they will lead us to bite the dust…

37. Economic power laws (De Guilmi et al., 2003) Pareto distributions of income and wealth approximate lines in doubly-logarithmic scales

38. Other violent power laws , there is no earthquake of a characteristic size

39. Other violent power laws , there is no earthquake of a characteristic size floods,avalanches, volcanic eruptions, forest fires… heavy tails

40. Conflict power laws (Cederman, 2003) no longer thanks to God…

41. Mechanisms yielding heavy tails (Sornette, 2009) multiplicative cascades preferential connections highly optimized tolerance, hot self-organizedcriticality

42. Common-sense code for peace run cascades in reverse to repair what is broken live at low Reynolds numbers to avoid violence cut mountains and ﬁll valleysto restore unity

43. Common-sense code for peace • run cascades in reverse to repair what is broken • live at low Reynolds numbers to avoid violence • cut mountains and ﬁll valleys to restore unity RECONCILIATION LOVE

44. The unique geometric solution

45. The unique geometric solution level zero 50-50no holes

46. The unique geometric solution level zero 50-50no holes

47. The unique geometric solution level zero 50-50no holes • only straight and solid condition without thorns or dust

48. The unique geometric solution level zero 50-50no holes only straight and solid condition without thorns or dust Our Lord Jesus Christ the way, the truth, and the life

49. The unique geometric solution level zero 50-50no holes only straight and solid condition without thorns or dust Our Lord Jesus Christ the way, the truth, and the life thehypotenuse is indeed the path of peace!
