Fuller-Flint-Einstein Correlations.  S.H. Shakman

 Fuller's* reference to "92" as both the number of "self-
regenerative chemical elements" and the number of spheres in the
third layer of closest-packed spheres dovetails nicely with
Flint's** emphasis on the system of 92 naturally-occurring
elements.  Particularly striking is Fuller's discussion of the
"four of the 24-ness of the Duo-tet Cube" in its uncanny
resemblance to Flint's matrix of four overlapping hydrational
periods with 24 digits in each (0-23, 23-46, 46-69, 69-92). 
Fuller:  "24 x 4 = 96.  But the number of the self-regenerative
chemical elements is 92.  What is missing ... is the disappearing
octa set. ... We have three expendable interior octa and one
expendable exterior octa."  Presumably Fuller's "three expendable
interior octa" may be correlated with the 23, 46 and 69 of Flint's
seemingly helical configuration, while the "one expendable exterior
octa" may be correlated with Flint's "0".  Such correlations may
prompt speculation as to a possible correlation between numbers of
spheres in the first layer (12) and second layer (42) of closest-
packed spheres and Einstein's*** calculated "Zl" values for the
"pure gravitational field" (12) and  presumed "non-symmetric field"
(42). In this context the latter might be subject to reappraisal
as symmetrical.
