# Wheel of Motion

**The Wheel of Motion** (WoM) representation of the periodic table of elements shows the periodic nature of the elements, as developed in the __Reciprocal System of Physical Theory__ (RST). It was originally developed by Douglas Bundy in 1998, a member of the International Society of Unified Science (ISUS).

## Wheel of Motion

The wheel configuration is a more natural way of showing the periodicity of the elements, as they are derived from the Reciprocal System of Theory, than is the traditional table. Each element in the wheel has one additional unit of __scalar motion__ than does its predecessor. Notice that Hydrogen occupies the most prominent position at the center of the wheel, this is appropriate since it is the first (lightest) and most abundant element in the universe. The noble metals occupy the key positions at the top and bottom of each circle. Also, it is immediately apparent from the WoM why the gaps in the standard table appear between the lower numbered rows (rows 1, 2 & 3), while the elements in the highest numbered rows (rows 6 & 7) do not all fit well in the table, and usually have to be shown separately in order to make the size of the table manageable. In the WoM these increasing lengths are naturally accommodated due to the increase in space that each concentric circle provides as each new series (row) begins.

While the RST is a relatively unknown system of physical theory, it predicts that the highest numbered element (heaviest) possible is atomic number 117, which completes the outer circle of the WoM. The atomic numbers of the elements are shown in blue on the inside of the circles, while the three position notation (a-b-c) on the outside indicates the total motion combination of each element in accordance with the RST.

The formula for the total number of elements contained in each circle is 4*n*^{2} where n equals the number of the circle beginning with the inner-most or Hydrogen circle. On this basis, the circles have the following number of positions:

The first circle has

- 4(1)
^{2}= 4 positions (three are subatomic & are not shown);

- 4(2)
^{2}= 16 positions;

- 4(3)
^{2}= 36 positions;

- 4(4)
^{2}= 64 positions.

**a**-

**b**-c), are magnetic, or values of two-dimensional scalar motion, while the third position, (a-b-

**c**), is electric, or values of one-dimensional scalar motion. Hence, n magnitudes in the a or b position are equal to n

^{2}magnitudes in the c position.

^{2}, which results in the following periods: The first period has

- 2(1)
^{2}= 2 positions;

- 2(2)
^{2}= 8 positions;

- 2(3)
^{2}= 18 positions;

- 2(4)
^{2}= 32 positions.
