# Adinkras are THE Mathematical Code Written in The Matrix

## What are adinkras?

Adinkras are visual representations of complex mathematical equations in physics.

A look closer and closer shows that certain codes are present everywhere. These codes are almost exactly like those found in computers. An example would be an internet browser – programs that have error correcting code.

The way error-correcting code works in computer programming is pretty simple. If you’re trying to send packets of data over the internet and lets say a few packets drop or get lost along the route. If the system has error-correcting code in there, it will detect that certain packets were lost along the route and attempt to re-create them to original state based on the metadata (information of the data packets).

Does it mean that our entire reality is virtual if there is such a code in our laws of physics? Perhaps our universe works like a natural computer or perhaps our reality is virtual (try to wrap your mind around that!)?

## Adinkras and the nature of reality

Complex ideas, complex shapes Adinkras — geometric objects that encode mathematical relationships between supersymmetric particles — are named after symbols that represent wise sayings in West African culture. These adinkras are called nea onnim no sua a, ohu,” which translates as “he who does not know can become knowledgeable through learning.”

In the land of theoretical physics, equations have always been king. Indeed, it would probably be fair to caricature theoretical physicists as members of a company called “Equations-R-Us”, since we tend to view new equations as markers of progress.

“The modern era of equation prediction began with Maxwell in 1861, continued through the development of Einstein’s equations of general relativity in 1916, and reached its first peak in the 1920s with the Schrödinger and Dirac equations. Then a second, postwar surge saw the development of equations describing the strong force and the electroweak force, culminating in the creation of the Standard Model of particle physics in about 1973. The equations trend continues today, with the ongoing struggle to create comprehensive equationics to describe superstring theory. This effort — which aims to incorporate the force of gravity into physical models in a way that the Standard Model does not — marks the extant boundary of a long tradition.

Yet equations are not the only story. To an extent, geometrical representations of physical theories have also been useful when correctly applied. The most famous incorrect geometrical representation in physics is probably Johannes Kepler’s model of planetary orbits; initially, Kepler believed the orbits could be described by five regular polygons successively embedded within each other, but he abandoned this proposition when more accurate data became available.

The word “adinkra” is of West African etymology, and it originally referred to visual symbols created by the Akan people of Ghana and the Gyamen of Côte d’Ivoire to represent concepts or aphorisms. However, the mathematical adinkras we study are really only linked to those African symbols by name. Even so, it must be acknowledged that, like their forebears, mathematical adinkras also represent concepts that are difficult to express in words. Most intriguingly, they may even contain hints of something more profound — including the idea that our universe could be a computer simulation, as in the Matrix films.
