In the introductory chapters of this dissertation, I will relate some of my personal, academic, and professional experiences, in the hope that the reader may gain some insight in determining the origin of Genesa. Personally, I am convinced Genesa is a formalized account of what I have sensed going on within me and around me during these many years of rich experience in a wide variety of activities in the United States and in other countries. My close proximity to the workings of Nature on a farm :n Iowa, followed by academic training in agriculture at Iowa State university, and specialized training in genetics at Cornell University (Ph.D., 1939) provided a solid background for the responsibilities I undertook during World War II as head of an international crash program in plant breeding, with headquarters in Venezuela. During those years of intense activity in the creation of high yielding varieties of plants, I was in constant contact with youth on a purposeful mission of food production, of scientific research, of self-education, of business endeavors, of training in leadership, and of family livings, and thereby gained invaluable experience in human nature. Careful study of natural populations of plants, of created gene pools, and of special selections for specific purposes, presented a wide panorama of diversity and unity, of differences and resemblances, and all degrees of dynamic balance and imbalance from which to draw my own conclusions regarding basic forces and their interactions in time and space. The biological sequence of 2 cells (male and female) forming 1 cell (zygote) to start a new organism, and the 1 forming a basic pattern of 8 by three divisions, and the 8 increasing to a sufficient number in an orderly manner to develop a whole organism, followed by a reduction to 1 male and 1 female cell for the next generation, has provided me with a living geometry for an interpretation of the harmonious interplay of symmetry, rhythm, and balance in polari...
