To specify the relative attributes of a project, person, place, or tool, first use the slider on the left
to specify the 4th dimension. Then drag a project, person, place or tool onto the triangle. These three
coordinates are considered "balanced", that is, the position on the triangle specifies them with a
particular algorithm. The closer to one corner of the triangle you are, the more strongly you reflect that
attribute. The center of the trinagle reflects all attributes equally--that is, "perfect balance."
The weights of these attributes will be recorded with your assertion, and displayed (temporarily) below the
The Fourth Dimension
In Mark's conception, the fourth dimension is "abundance" or "condition", which may
be thought of as power or development. It is represented as a slider on the
left. The checkbox labeled "Balance fourth with Norm" controls whether
this dimension is thought of as separate, or whether we require a length 1
vector of all for dimensions.
Usage of the 3D View
This is an interactive 3D simulation. To change the view, place your mouse in the view area, and
hold and "drag" the mouse to rotate the image.
The mouse wheel or a drag on your trackpad should zoom you in or out.

The ultimate purpose is to match needs with offers, for example to work on technical projects, base on an interpretation
of Maslow's Pyramid, having four dimenstions. People express their desires by placing themselves on a tetrahedron that
captures, for example, the Mind/Body/Spirt and Abundance situation, and might then be matched with projects that
are suited to them. Exactly how this will be done is still being worked out; this is a step.
