Quotation Mix-up: Playing Marbles Inside a Giant Sphere

"Ray’s proposed solution to the problem of "pyramiding" was a million-dollar marbles tournament. The million-dollar prize would attract people concerned about the long-term implications of society’s "pyramiding", or disillusioned with its current state these people would then be convinced of Ray’s views through the experience of playing marbles inside a giant sphere. The 1987 St. Petersburg Times article reports that Ray was planning to form an "Order of the Sphere" to promote his philosophy."

"Critics of Ray like to draw attention to his "marbles period" because they consider it inconsistent with his later Time Cube theory. Under the Time Cube theory, the circle is considered a "zero value", and "circle measure is slop bucket". Supporters of Ray, however, see his circle-based philosophy as a natural precursor to the Time Cube. Ray first recognized the significance of the circle-cycle, and only later discovered the fourfold division of the circle into the four corner quadrants of the Time Cube."
