First let me introduce myself.
My name is Rini Sips (1935).
|I see a certain direction in my life, which is to
get an overall picture of things and try to understand their structure. This has led me to
pose a number of questions and to go on searching for answers. It began in ernest when the
question came up of why adaptability and following the 'rules' were no guarantee for
The search for answers to my question turned out to be a zigzaggy process, that finally proved to have more of a direction than I originally would have imagined. That it took me quite a long time has much to do with my way of working and handling problems. At first I believed that some wise people had the answer to my question. That in a book somewhere ... , but that turned out to be a mistake. I was also restricted by my own prejudiced ideas. Some preset ideas of mine were:
At long last I was able to develop a concept of man which offered an important starting point to get a concise, practical and manageable picture of how people are, and how we cannot but be different.
I may have found a structure and be able to discuss ideas with friends. For myself however I want to conclude my quest-like search by trying to consolidate my findings and set myself some discipline by having to put it in written form. In addition, since my experience and the knowledge which I have acquired could possibly be profitable to other people who seek self development or want more insight in people's incentives and peculiarities, I want to pass on my brainchild as a zine by means of this medium. Your feedback will be much appreciated!
A zine is a creative expression of one person or of a group of people. Zines appear
just once or over a period of time, as one sample or in larger numbers. They are informal
in so far as they may contain anything that can be reproduced on paper. The phenomenon
occurred in the eighties in the U.S., at universities and elsewhere. The paper carrier
could in the mean time well have been bartered for the Internet. But that need not be the

Now as I re-read the introduction after almost 17 years it strikes me that it looks as if I thought I was ready before I had even started: I appear to presume that I needed to look for a new concept of mankind!!
To me it is clear that I am not an astrologist, someone who interprets a horoscope, but a person who seekes for the how and why of factual data. From experience I have learned that I am a reviewer but not just that; I am an observer, always asking and searching and weighing and absorbing and comparing without an immediate personal reaction or opinion. Someone who takes her time before drawing conclusions.
unfortunately, still not been able to find out whether the interpretation of the cosmos of
Egyptians and Babylonians (before 2000 BC) corresponded with Ptolomeus' Tetrabiblos vision
transmitted to Gerolamo Cordano (1501-1576) and others whose starting point was the
Ascendant -the personal space and time.
If the information is correct that a group of scientists and philosophers, including
Einstein, think that the present world-view is incorrect and for that
reason needs an alternative,
A synopsis of some essential steps and consequences:
|In Sept. 1999, in #01 my points of departure and presuppositions, I clearly
start from the individual, with myself as the subject.
In Aug. 2001, in #11 the first state of affairs, I have the intention of occupying myself with mutually related concepts.
In April 2004, in #21 the second state of affairs, I am working hard on the singularity-, the dynamic-, the dialectic- and the relativity principle, and some other sometimes less important subjects.
----- in April 2007, with #29 I start studying the relations between process and
environment / 'context'. I start thinking with difficulty from 'the cosmos, a unity of
----- in June 2010, with #33, I close 'the internal relations', but leave a wrong number behind.... I think that I must take a closer look at the notions structure and system which then and now are often mixed up --- and decide to skip #34 and #35 for the time being in order to concentrate in #36 on the problem of the structure.
----- in the period from Oct. 2010 till Feb. 2016, with #36, the structure based on quantum relations becomes gradually clear to me and from there I can change the astrologic chart in such a manner that a clearly comparable image develops based on the mutuality and unity of unique parts.
----- in April 2016, while correcting the animations 2c and 3a in #33, I cautiously
apply the structural representation developed in #36. By
using the universe as a permanent base in the charts and approaching processes from the
view of unity of its integral individual and functional parts, the quantum-cohesion of the
interactive and changeable world-view as well as the view of things and
humans as individual and unique becomes clear.
----- in May 2016, turning back to #32 in which the same process appears, I also used the reversed astrological representation or the new cosmological (quantum) world-view.
----- in #39 further structural and technical data will be added.
----- in de last 3 parts of the themes line the subjects of development, society and other consequences of the new human, thing and world-view of unity and uniqueness will be under discussion.

You can choose your own route through the zines: either follow the numbers starting with #1, or turn into one of the zigzag roads below.
