When I notice physical structural and behavior patterns, I often marvel how exacting and complex they are. The GGU-model is a rational mathematical model that depicts how such patterns can be designed and produced. As illustrated, human beings can also design and produce physical patterns in a similar manner. Thus, by recognizing throughout the physical world such patterns and, in many cases, determining how they came about, we should also be able to accept that there can be an actual entity who has designed and produces each of them.

Today, the GGU-model is based upon a variation in very general notion of construction via "sectioning." That is, an entire object is considered as composed of rationally combined constructed sections. (1) An entire object is first designed to be constructed in a rational step-by-step manner from constructed sections. (2) Each section is designed. (3) A set of instructions is given as to how to combine the basic construction material in order to obtain, in a rational step-by-step manner, each designed section. (4) The material is combined and a section is produced. (5) The entire object is constructed by constructing each section one-at-a-time and as they are constructed rationally placing the sections in their intended order.

The following is a standard approach to constructing a modern 100 story or so building. I use two of the figures from the paper of this same title.

(a) A construction company has pre-designed 25 different types of 100-story buildings. The architectural-technical drawings, on DVDs, are stored in cabinets within each of 25-rooms.

(b) Within each room is a vault marked with a big "prime" ' symbol.

(c) In like manner, the compiled instructions, on DVDs, are stored in cabinets in the another vault without the special marking.

(d) In each of the two rooms and in both cases, the cabinets are all secured, one next to the other, via a large sliding steel bar that covers-over each cabinet's locking button.

(e) The buyers have chosen a particular style, number 20.

(f) The buyers also select the complexity they want for each level - each "floor" - beginning with the lowest sub-basement. "Complexity" means how each floor is to be arranged - offices, stores, apartments, etc. In each case, all of the additional refinements, especially the electrical, electronic and plumbing refinements, among many others features, are included in the complexity notion. The buyers picked complexity no. 22. Below, I'm using two images from the basic paper and have not indicated here that n = 22, a = 22 and b = 1.

H'1. The construction superintendent enters room 20 and unlocks vault W'.

H'2. The cabinets are, indeed, secured by a large sliding steel bar, S'.

H'3. The superintendent, A', slides-out the bar S' so the cabinets can be opened. (Notice the fact that the sliding bar used to secure the cabinets is no longer used for that purpose.)

H'4. The superintendent selects cabinet 22 and removes a long case, V'(22), of 100 DVDs, in their jewel boxes, and places it on a cart. He notes that the first, front-to-back, DVD is marked f(22,1).

Now the superintendent needs the instructions in order to construct each of the 100 levels.

H1. The construction superintendent unlocks vault W.

H2.The cabinets are secured by a large sliding steel bar, S.

H3. The superintendent selects cabinet 22 and removes a long case, V(22), of 100 DVDs, in their jewel boxes, and places it on a cart. He notes that the first, front-to-back, DVD is marked I(22,1).

H4. The superintendent selects cabinet 22 and removes a long case, V'(22), of 100 DVDs, in their jewel boxes, and places it in the same cart. The "n" is the number 22.

The superintendent takes the cart to a trailer. He has three computer screens on a table at which he will supervise the work, one (I = instructions) on his left, another (P = progress) in the middle and one (D = drawings) on his right. He places case V'(22) on the left of (I). He places case V(22) on the right of (D).

The DVD cases are build in a special manner to avoid errors. The DVDs in each box can only be removed from a slit on the top that is at the front of the box. The DVDs inside have a spring in the back so as one DVD is removed, the spring pushes the entire remaining DVD towards the front. This is done so that the next one can be removed from the slit. He turns on the computers.

H5. The first DVD in V(22), I(22,1), contains all of the instructions for constructing level 1 as the sections of level one are ordered by chapter number.

H'5. The first DVD in V'22), f(22,1), contains all the architectural-technical drawings for level 1 as ordered by chapters.

H6. The superintendent, A, takes from the front slot in case V(22) the DVD, I(22,1), that contains all of the instructions for level 1 as chapters. He will display each chapter on the left-hand computer screen.

H'6. The superintendent, A, takes from the front slot in case V'(22) the DVD, f(22,1), that contains all of the technical-drawing for level 1 sections as ordered chapters. He will display each chapter on the left-hand computer screen.

H7. Each construction team leader has an Ipad listing the instructions. Each selects the chapter for the section the team will construct. The workers gather, G, all the materials necessary and construct, St, the first level one section (chapter) at a time. The superintendent checks each completed section via the progress screen in the middle that displays the actual completed section. He compares it, in detail, to the technical-drawings. If the section does not correspond to the drawings, he stops the work and checks the specific instructions to see where the workers went wrong and has them correct the construction error.

After the level is completed and matches the architectural-technical drawings, the work-lights are termed off and all the overhead lights put on. Only the most recently completed level is fully illuminated at night. Then the steps H'6, H6, and H'7 are repeated for the next DVDs that are selected from the two cases. This continues until the building is completed.
