The torus is the fundamental form of the electromagnetic field, (think smoke ring or donut). As such it is one of the most important geometries at every scale from the subatomic to the supergalactic.

- I love this beautiful demonstration of how circular motion of varying kinds can create the geometry of the torus !3 0 0 0
- The sphere and the torus are intimately related. As soon as you spin a sphere you have toroidal dynamics, equatorial expansion and polar contraction. Nassim Haramein's 'double torus is likewise a description of the dynamics of a spinning torus. All three forms are aspects of the same expansion/contraction polarity as expressed in 4 dimensional spacetime. In higher dimensions there are other forms that combine these dynamics into one.3 0 0 0
