Queries on Unity with Nature
Queries, or probing questions, that arose from a perspective that sees people in unity with nature, not apart from it. These queries were subsequently published as the Quaker contribution to the 1989 Environmental Sabbath resource guide developed by the U.N. Environment Programme.

Peace Cubes - Gifts of Light
Home for the Peace Cubes - Virtual Light and Colour Cubes that are at the centre of a three-dimensional mathematics of colour and light and that can transform our understanding of the nature and dimensions of light and colour. The Peace Cubes can also serve as vital elements in a new global curriculum on mathematics, colour and light, as symbols for the One Light in all of Creation, and as teaching tools on the properties of knowledge-based economies, and as an introduction to the properties of zero-based economy. All of the images are computer-generated, the most recent images based on HTML tables generated from a DataPerfect database, as were most of the sets of web pages of images.

Peace Faces - Faces of the Peace Cubes
A meditation on the forty-eight faces of the light and colour cubes. Each face represents a meeting place of four primary colours and may evoke a unique feeling. Each face is framed below a frieze of the eight rotations and reflections of itself. At the loer right of the face is its photographic negative. A bottom frieze contains small icons of the forty eight faces. Easy - and enjoyable; forget about words; let your eyes and feelings guide you.

Peace Tiles - Gifts of Light
A set of the ninety-six peace tiles - based on mirror images of the faces and the cycles of all possible pairs of contiguous faces of the Peace Cubes. Each colourful tile is framed below a frieze of the corresponding faces. The bottom frieze contains the photographic negative of the tile. Below that are the sixteen "cycle tiles" corresponding to the faces of the main tile. Sound complicated? In practice it is easy - and fun if you let your eyes and feelings guide you. Virtually no words, yet simple to grasp visually.

The web site for the Peace Tiles was launched on October 24, United Nations Day, 2000.

Birth of the Rainbow Cubic Sine Waves
An exploration in connections between the Light and Colour Cubes and the colours of the rainbow, Rainbow Cubic Sine Waves represents a mapping of the colurs of the cubes onto a sine wave, in which the cycle of colours seems to evoke the colour sequence of the rainbow. The development of the Rainbow Cubic Sine Wave took place over two days very shortly on the birth of the Cubic Colour Wheel, reflecting an openness to softening the sharp edges of the Cubes, as well as to focus attention on some of the rhythmic and cyclical properties of the cubes.
