The Diamond Ladder
HAVE you ever felt an awareness rising whose touch
you suddenly know you have experienced before, been transported
by a thought or encounter to a familiar inner landscape somehow
forgotten? Sometimes, when the riding wind whispers against my
cheek or a summoning birdsong arrests my hearing, a timeless hush
descends and the air becomes charged with a palpable sense of
being. The bird, the wind, and I are kin. We share the
miracle of existence. We are!
Reality can be perceived as a presence so strongly sensed that all intellectualizations about it pale. At other times it can be analyzed and discussed. To venture distant conceptual byways of reality is a great journey. Beyond the familiar orientation of land and sky, city and forest, the conceptual traveler must devise restricting terms, point-patterned constellations for navigation.
As a polestar to provide our bearings on this journey,
I would suggest the concept of levelates, a term denoting
a degree of organization, or structuration. As
one lays down the primal conceptual basis of a reality perspective,
related factors arise, as if of themselves. Structurate
signifies a structure, from a levelate perspective.
All individual realities are structurates: stars, galaxies,
atoms, ideas, feelings. A company, a structurate, is a
superstructurate, or overate, to its employees, who are
substructurates, or partates, of the company.
In the world of mind, lands of inhabitation are not nation and
nation, but perspectives of reality with shores ending at seas
of unresolved outlook. Belief, bias, and assumption are the rock,
grass, and cloud of this inner place. In the universum mindus,
humanity's collective feet shuffle along ancient thought paths
whose patterns impart continuity and form to the humanly perceived
environment. In the rising distance, away from the precincts
of localized viewpoint, crystal highlands of elevated perspective
and unifying view stand waiting, silent towers of promise.
The binary aspect of reality, discernible through levelation, is a coin stamped on one side with a quality of singleness and on the other with a nature of multipleness. An individual reality is a single reality at one levelate but is also its multiple component realities at a more partateward levelate. This phenomenon takes place in a mechanism called a unity. In the homolevelate perspective, a simplification of the heterolevelate view, individual realities, called unitants, manifest collectively as a harmonious whole, called a unity, by individually reacting to a common reality outside the unity, called a unifier.
The trinary aspect of reality is detectable in an organizing mechanism that I shall refer to as a triate, which can be viewed from different angles, depending on one's area of interest. In the homolevelate view, a simplification of the heterolevelate perspective, a triate is a structurate composed of three partate structurates: a focalate, a multiate, and a diffluate.
The focalate of a triate is a central, controlling structurate. The multiate is an encircling, controlled structurate -- an overate of individual parts called multiatons. A triate's diffluate, A DIFfuse inFLUence, is a directed influence that impresses patterns inherent in the focalate upon the multiate.
To visualize a triate, one can summon up in one's
mind the image of the solar system in which our blue-swirled planet
has its cyclic existence. At the center is the sun, great, commanding,
proud, the focalate of the solar system multiate
(planets, asteroids, and other orbiting material). The third
element of the solar system triate is its diffluate, which
causes the multiate to take on positions, properties, and
motions that are inherent in patterns in the focalate.
From the point of view of the multiate, the diffluate is the
diffuse presence of the pattern-setting focalate over the multiate;
to the focalate, the diffluate is the focalized presence of the
Increased insight can attend shifts in perspective. If one restricts
one's view of a triatal multiate to a submultiate instead,
dramatic new triate properties leap up like flames in the night.
If, in a triate where the focalate is completely surrounded by
the multiate, one views a segment of that multiate as the
total multiate, the focalate is effectively displaced laterally
from the center of the new multiate. The new, lesser multiate
is called a lateral multiate, and the original multiate,
in which the focalate is centrally located, a central multiate.
Any individual reality is a multiate, either lateral or central, to some focalate, which, through its diffluate presence, causes the individual reality to come into being and upholds it and its properties. This is generalized in the law of triate identity, which, in its homolevelate form, is:
Every individual reality has its existence upheld in a triate, known as its triate of identity, or identifying triate, in which it is the multiate, also known as the identified reality.
In the triate chain resides the pattern of the diamond ladder,
the glistening lockstitch threading all things into ascending
overates of existence. Structurates are upheld in their triates
of identity, which in turn are upheld in more overateward triates
The key to the heterolevelate triate perspective lies in a heterolevelate understanding of unities. Unities are fiery crucibles of being where multiplicity melts, flows, and recasts itself across the face of reality. Accompany me in imagination, if you will, and let us speed in thought to the world of archetypicality, where bright patterns of perception drift in a boundless void. There. That linearized hourglass shape -- see? The two vertical cones joined at their tips? A horizontal plane bounds its base and another its zenith, a third bisecting its waist. This is a unity. A heterolevelate unity. In its unexpected but somehow familiar geometrical turnings is sculpted a visual understanding of how separate realities can be multiple, yet also be one.
You and I turn our attention to this schematic
portrayal, acquainting ourselves with its features. The hourglass
surfaces are called the unital walls and the three planes
the subunital planes. The intersection of each plane with
the unital walls is a glowing subunital circle. Each plane
is the repository for a separate aspect of the unity. At the
bottom of the unity is the protoplane, whose intersection
with the unital walls is the protocircle. Just above is
the synthoplane, with its associated synthocircle.
And the topmost subunital plane, the versoplane, intersects
the unital walls as the subunital circle called the versocircle.
Identation is a property signifying whether
a structurate is a singlate or a plurate. A
singlate (a singular term) is a set of items viewed as
a single reality: army, for example, or book
(one set of its many parts). A plurate (a plural
term) is a set of items viewed as all of the individual members
of a set: soldiers, for example or (many parts
of the) book. Sometimes singular grammar is applied to
a plurate, which, though referred to as it instead of they,
is still a plurate.
See the prototons strung like beads along the smooth
curvilinearity of the protocircle. They are the unitants
of the unity. An individual reality can be a prototon in several
unities. In unities involving persons, for example, one
can find members, partners, citizens. But
these are unity-defined roles and dwell high in the unital interiors.
Protoplanes hold no such unity-restricted realities. For
protoplanes are the marbled entranceways of the unities.
Antecedent to specialized functioning, they know only the independent,
noninterassociated phases of realities: this man or
A unity involves many realities as one and is consequently
also called a multiunity. In the homolevelate unity
outlook, attributes of multipleness and singleness
twist together confusingly below the surface. In the heterolevelate
unity outlook, however, these attributes are mutually separated,
both functionally and geometrically, through the
dimension of verticality and the medium of multiple horizontal
A primalate is a reality that exists in
the primordial line of some other reality, which is known as the
finalate of the primalate. Relatively speaking, the primalate
is a source reality and the finalate its derivative
reality. Primalate and finalate are not related in a temporal
sense -- as ancestor and descendant -- but
rather in a structural sense. A thread is a primalate
of the rope which is woven in its substance; the rope is
a finalate of the thread in which it is woven. In a unity, the
finalateward direction -- as we visualize it in
our schematic representation -- is upward. Primalateward
A unity possesses an existential and also an experiential
phase. The synthoton is existential (non-experiential),
being actualized -- once it is forthcoming -- in
the space of an instant. Qualitative only, it either exists
or does not exist. Because of this, the synthoton is also
called the existon and the synthoplane is called the existum.
The synthoton is the responsiveness of the prototons to
the unifier. In a volitional unity, the synthoton
is the commitment of the unifying persons to the unity.
Denominational factoring is a technique whereby one can follow a reality, as it either (1) translevelates or (2) functions in multiple roles within the same levelate, by referring to its various manifestations by identical names, differentiated only by superscripts or subscripts. A reality named X, which is a prototon in a particular triate, might, when functioning in an additional triate, be denominated X1 . Alternately, the versotonic manifestation of X as a monotron might be named X1 , which, when functioning as a prototon in a finalateward triate, might in turn be named X2 . X-1 might indicate a reality that is a prototon in a triate in which is X is the monotronic versotronic projection of X-1. X+ and X- denote a finalate and primalate of X, respectively, at some unspecified distance finalateward or primalateward.
An individual uniton can be identified by a unitonic
designator, which is a combination of three identifiers followed
by a degree sign. The first of these, the planotonic multiplicity
number, is a number denoting the multiplicity of the planotons
of which the uniton is a member. The second, the planic abbreviation
letter, is P, S, or V as the uniton is
a prototon, synthoton, or versoton, respectively.
And finally, the planotonic sequence number is a number
identifying the individual uniton among the unitons in its subunital
plane. The planotonic sequence number can be established in a
predetermined list. These three identifiers together comprise
the unitonic designator. The unitonic designator 10P8o thus signifies
the eighth prototon in a decaunity and is
a decaunitonic designator. And 4P2o signifies prototon
number two out of a prototonic population of four,
thus constituting a quadunitonic designator.
You and I have seen that the name, unity,
is really a shorthand way of saying multiunity -- MULTI
in recognition of the plurality of the prototons and UNI
in observance of the singularity of the synthoton. (The
multiplicity of the versotons is inherent in the multiplicity
of the prototons). A multiunity is a biunity, triunity,
quadunity, or quinunity as its prototons number
two, three, four, or five, respectively.
Its unitons can also be called multiunitons -- or,
more specifically, biunitons, triunitons, quadunitons,
or quinunitons, respectively. The unitants in a
multiunity are the prototons.
Let us examine some of these relationships in a
familiar setting. Visualize, if you will, a triunity, named family,
or family triunity, of three persons: a man, a woman,
and a youth. These three individuals are the triunity's
Each duotron is the working relationship
of two monotrons. A strong development of duotrons does
not imply the strong development of the treotron -- the
family. Working relationships beyond duotrons must develop
in order for the family to experientialize. For example, each
of the three duotrons in the family triunity may function as a
harmonious manifestation of a different possible pair of individual
family members. But no matter how well family man might interact
with family youth as the family man-family youth duotron or family
woman might interact with family youth as the family woman-family
youth duotron, the family man-family woman duotron, for example,
when in the presence of the family youth monotron, could possibly
manifest some factor, such as love of mate, in a form that
sweeps aside the needs of family youth.
As you and I contemplate these subunital relationships, we suddenly perceive that multiplicity is a relative quality -- or rather, we understand, for the first time, a multilevelate reality. The UNITY we are considering is three in the prototons, one in the synthoton, and seven in the versotons. The PROTOTONS are three in themselves, one in the synthoton, and seven in the versotons. The VERSOTONS are seven in themselves, one in the synthoton, and three in the prototons. All of this is true because each planate, in all of its attributes -- including multiplicity and submultiplicity -- is the unity in its entirety, just looked at in a unique way. Because of this, three persons joined in a triunity can truly say that they are three, yet one. And also seven.
Now you and I are prepared to understand the heterolevelate concept of a triate, for a triate is a special kind of triunity. Its realities -- the unitons, or triunitons -- are called triatons. The heterolevelate triate's three unitants, or prototons, are the focalate, diffluate, and multiate as generally visualized in the homolevelate triate model, with the difference that in the heterolevelate perspective, the multiate is a plurate; that is, multiate is a plural term, though grammatically we refer to the multiate as it instead of they. The focalate and diffluate are both identate as singlates; that is, each is a singular reality. The synthoton is a singlate, and, in the versoplane, each versoton is a singlate. In view of the fact that you and I have graduated from the homolevelate perspective, we shall from this point on take the words unity and triate to signify the heterolevelate outlook. We have seen that the cardinality of a triunity, hence of a triate, is (3:1:7). Seven experions populate a triate. Three are monotronic, or primary, versotons. Three are duotronic, or secondary, versotons. And one is a treotronic, or tertiary, versoton -- the sumotron.
The monotrons, as we have seen, are the projections into
the versoplane of each individual prototon (more correctly,
of that portion of each individual prototon that is committed
to the unity) as an individual versoton. A monotron
is denominated the centrate, omnate, or periphate
as it is the projection into the versoplane of the focalate,
diffluate, or multiate, respectively, and can also
be referred to as the versofocalate, versodiffluate,
or versomultiate, respectively. The focalate, diffluate,
and multiate can also be referred to as the protocentrate,
protoomnate, and protoperiphate, respectively.
A triatonic designator is a unitonic designator
applied to a triate. You and I adopt the following three series
of triatal planotonic numbering: In the protoplane, the
numbers 1, 2, and 3 designate the focalate,
diffluate, and multiate, respectively. In the synthoplane,
1 signifies the synthoton. In the versoplane,
among the monotrons, 1, 2, and 3 designate
the centrate, omnate, and periphate, respectively.
The versotonic actate, interactate, and reactate
are designated by 4, 5, and 6, respectively.
And the versotonic treotron, the structate, is
denoted by 7. Thus, 7V2o specifies a triatal omnate,
while 3P2o specifies a triatal diffluate. We could have
found, even if we had not known, that the unity involved in 7V2o
is a triunity, by substituting various numbers for n
in the versotonic multiplicity formula and observing which value
of n produces a result of 7. We can also find the
complement of any triatal versoton; for under our triatal planotonic
numbering scheme, the planotonic sequence numbers of two complemental
versotons always add up to seven. Thus, the versotonic
complement of planoton number one, the monotronic centrate -- versotonic
projection of the focalate -- is versoton number seven-minus-one,
or 6, which is the reactate, a duotron, the
versotonic projection of the prototonic diffluate and multiate
One can define the boundaries of being of a reality in various
ways. Consider, if you will, a multiunital prototon. The total
of all the realities that are inherently part of the prototon
is called the prototon's endion. The total of all the
non-endionic realities that are subject to the control of the
prototon -- that is, of all the realities that are subject
to the control of the prototon but are not inherently part of
the prototon -- is called the prototon's exion.
The prototon's composite endion-exion is called the prototon's
Separateness of existence is a reality tension
which, like any other manifestation of polarity, strives to eradicate
itself. Unity of existence is the twinborn antithesis
of separateness of existence and is the potential vessel
of its eradication. Interposed like a moderating hand between
these two reality attributes is a third attribute, called fractiality.
In the family triunity, the portion of woman that is family woman is a family directon, while the total of all other aspects of woman is a family subordon, not contributing to the reality of the triunity called family. These fractialitive prototonic categorizations are relative. Suppose that in addition to being a prototon of the family triunity, woman were also to be prototonic in a multiunity called church multiunity. Then church woman would be a directon of the church multiunity, while the total of all of the non-church aspects of woman, including family woman, would be a church subordon.
The maximum portion of its sumialities that a prototon can contribute to its multiunity and still retain its own endio-identity, thus preventing multiunital collapse, is called its maximated directon, or maximo-directon. A multiunity whose directons are all maximated directons is called a divested multiunity, or divesto-multiunity. Prototons (fractons) in a divested multiunity are referred to as divested prototons (divested fractons), or divesto-prototons (divesto-fractons). Divesto-prototons withold from the multiunities of their divesto-prototonicity the minimum portion of their individual endialities consistent with retaining their individual endionic identities, thus preventing collapse of the multiunity.
Subordons of divesto-multiunities are called minimated
subordons, or minimo-subordons, each subordon being
that portion of the associated divesto-fracton that is not
committed to the multiunity. Completons of divested multiunities
are referred to as divested completons, or divesto-completons,
each consisting of a composite maximo-directon and minimo-subordon.
Integrions of divesto-multiunities are called divested integrions,
Every multiunity (also called a fractial multiunity,
or basial multiunity, or basiate) is the basis of
three integriates, each of a separate type. One type of
integriate, named a directiate, possesses as integroprototons
(more specifically called directoprototons) the prototonic
directons. A second type of integriate, named a subordiate,
possesses as integroprototons (more specifically called subordoprototons)
the prototonic subordons. A third type of integriate, named a
completiate, possesses as integroprototons (more specifically
called comploprototons) the prototonic completons. The
sub-integriatal planes of a directiate, subordiate, or completiate
can more specifically be referred to as sub-directiatal, sub-subordiatal,
or sub-completiatal planes, respectively.
The three associated integriates of a given multiunity
are called unigrates, and their integrions (integroprototons)
are called unigratons (unigraprototons). A multiunity
and its unigrates are known as unitogrates, and their prototons
and integrions (integroprototons) are known as unitogratons -- unitograprototons.
These terms are relational designators and only apply
when used to indicate membership in a specific group. A biunity,
its associated subordiate, and its associated completiate, for
example, considered as a group, are three unitogrates,
and their prototons and integrions are unitogratons. The
same same biunity and some other subordiate, however, considered
as a group, are not unitogrates.
A triate, a special case of a triunity, is also known as a triatofractiate. Its corresponding integriates -- directiate, subordiate, and completiate -- are denominated a triatodirectiate, a triatosubordiate, and a triatocompletiate, respectively. A triatal basiate is called a triatobasiate. Triunital unigrates and triatal unitogrates are called triatounigrates and triatounitogrates, respectively. Triatal unigratons and triatal unitogratons are called triato-unigratons and triato-unitogratons, respectively.
The family triunity is also known as the fractial
family triunity, or family trifractiate. If one strips away
in one's mind the non-family-triunity component of the family
triunity prototons, one is left, conceptually, with the family
triunity directons. The family tridirectiate has
as directoprototons the family triunity directons family man,
family woman, family youth (that is, family sumio-man,
family sumio-woman, family sumio-youth). The family
tridirectiate is not a triunity, for its directoprototons are
A reality that is perfectly unified within itself
is said to be partra-unified. A group of realities that
are perfectly unified between themselves is said to be ovra-unified.
A group of realities, each of which is partra-unified and all
of which, as a group, are ovra-unified, is said to be omni-unified.
A multiunity whose sumprotoate is omni-unified is called an omni-multiunity.
Completiates are theoretical integrial realities. For a given multiunity, a potential completiate always exists; however, an actual completiate, the equivalent of a non-fractial multiunity -- or multiunity whose prototons commit all of their realities to the multiunity -- would be a post-evolutionary structure, unalterable by internal or external influences. This requirement is embodied in the completiate actualization criterion, which is stated as follows:
A completiate can only actualize when the associated multiunity possesses complete, unqualified, final, and unalterable unity within each of its prototons and between all of its prototons.
Completiates, therefore, are unqualifiedly stable omni-integriates;
there are no completiates that are not omni-completiates.
To visualize an emergo-completiate, one might consider
a friendship, a purely personal unity (an endio-personal
unity) of several persons who, among other things, are also kings.
Each of the sumio-persons is a fractial prototon
in the endio-personal multiunity. Each associated directon
consists of the endio-person's committed realities -- that
is, committed to the personal multiunity. Each associated
subordon consists of the sumio-person's uncommitted sumio-realities,
including: (1) the uncommitted endio-personal realities
and (2) all of the sumio-person's exio-realities, among which
are the sumio-person's responsive kingdom realities -- that
is, the kingdom realities that are subordinate to the exio-person,
hence to the sumio-person. The uncommittted endio-personal
realities of each person are direct subordial realities,
inherently subject to the person. The responsive kingdom realities
of each person are indirect subordial realities, made subject
to the person through another multiunity (a kingship triate).
Two biunities that share a common prototon are collectively called
a duo-biunity and individually called co-biunities.
A duo-uniton is a uniton that is shared in common by the
two co-biunities in a duo-biunity. The prototon that is shared
between the co-biunities is denominated a duo-prototon,
and its monotronic projection, shared by the two versates, is
a duo-versoton -- a duo-monotron. The duotron
in each co-biunity is a duo-duotron, both duo-duotrons
in the duo-biunity sharing the single duo-monotron of the duo-biunity
in their being. The unshared prototons are called uni-prototons.
The versotons that have no duo-versotons in their being -- that
is, all of the monotrons except the duo-monotron -- are
A treo-biunity is three biunities sharing a common prototon,
or treo-prototon, and sharing the treo-prototon's resultant
monotronic versotonic projection, called a treo-versoton -- more
specifically, a treo-monotron. A poly-biunity is
a number of biunities sharing a common prototon, or poly-prototon,
and sharing the poly-prototon's resultant monotronic versotonic
projection, called a poly-versoton, or poly-monotron.
The unshared prototons in a poly-biunity are called uni-prototons.
The versotons that have no poly-versotons in their being are
called uni-versotons. The degree of a poly-biunity
is equal to the number of prototons (uni-prototons plus poly-prototons)
it possesses; for example, a treo-biunity, possessing four prototons,
is of degree four.
A completial poly-biunity is a poly-biunity
whose co-biunities are completial biunities. The versotonic population
of a non-completial, or emergo-completial, poly-biunity
is the same as that of a multiunity of the same degree
as the poly-biunity with the exception that the poly-biunital
versate does not include those multiunital versotons that involve
any combination of two or more of the uni-versotons. For example,
the duo-biunity whose duo-prototon is denominated B and
whose uni-prototons are A and C, when compared with
the trunity that is prototonic in A, B, and C, is missing
the triunital duotron A1C1 and the triunital treotron A1B1C1,
the missing versotons being referred to as poly-bisynthal
(more specifically, duo-bisynthal) versotons (a
duo-bisynthal duotron and a duo-bisynthal treotron).
In investigating the triatal structure, more discoveries wait
for you and me in the versate. New schematic symbology, however,
is required. Two useful picturizations of the versate are the
versal disk (versal as in versate,
not versoton) and the versal cube.
The seven beads are called overational versotons -- overational,
since each portrays an individual versoton as a single, overate
reality. An alternate rendering of the versal disk differs from
this portrayal primarily in depicting each duotron and
the treotron as a cluster of two or three
beads, respectively. The individual beads in each multitronic
cluster represent the monotrons that make up that multitron
and are labelled c, o, and p as they signify
the centrate, omnate, and periphate component,
respectively, of the multitron. These are the partational
versotons. Their distinction from overational versotons
is solely one of representational method. In the partational
versal disk, six dotted lines radiate out from the structate,
one connecting to each of the six circumferential versotons, signifying
graphically that the structate is all of the other versotons
Numerous relational and constitutional factors of the versate shine out to our perception through the medium of the versal disk, especially in the partational rendering. With the versal disk, one can analyze specific triates, labelling the disk's parts in terms of the triate under examination to bring out various factors. If one replaces the circular arcs, which interconnect the versotons in the versal disk, with straight lines instead, one produces the versal hexagon, functionally equivalent to the versal disk.
A further advance in understanding versate reality
awaits you and me in the versal portrayal known as the versal
cube. The versal cube is to the versal disk
as a three-dimensional figure is to a two-dimensional
figure. Any versotonic structate is a versal sum.
The summation of qualities as well as of quantities,
it is therefore a vector sum, represented geometrically
as a point (bead center) in a reference system. In the
versal disk the structate possesses a two-dimensional
location, while in the versal cube the structate possesses
a three-dimensional location.
Examining the figure that you and I have created, we see that depicting the monotrons as one-dimensional axial vectors in a three-dimensional coordinate system generates three two-dimensional duotrons, each duotron being a resultant vector and lying in its own plane of the coordinate system. The monotrons are lines -- one-dimensional vectors. The duotrons are planes -- two-dimensional vectors. The three two-dimensional duotronic vectors together form a resultant three-dimensional vector, the structate, in the c,o,p space of the COP coordinate system. They are the projections, in the coordinate planes, of this total, or summational, vector.
Numerous factors can be observed in the versal
cube. The monotronic and duotronic sheets can be
seen in it, by connecting together the three monotronic beads
and connecting together the three duotronic beads, respectively.
In the rectangular framework of the versal cube, we can easily
perceive that these, the versal sheets, are parallel to
View, if you will, the versal cube corner-on, looking down along
the structatal vector toward the origin, as if the cube were balanced
on its origin corner and observed from above. See how the visible
and hidden lines of the cubical outline, taking on seemingly unaccustomed
turnings, are really the versal hexagon (hence the versal
disk). The versal hexagon, we see in this new perspective,
is the versal cube seen along the structatal cubal diagonal,
the perception of depth along the line-of-sight being lost because
of the orientation of the observer and compressed into the planarity
of the versal hexagon.
In the versal cube, the Star-of-David pattern of the versal hexagon is seen, released from its two-dimensional bondage, viewed in the clarity of three dimensions. It is in reality two structures mistaken as one: the separate, parallel versal sheets observed, like two celestial constellations, from a direction that causes them to appear to lie in the same plane. The origin -- the one unidentified bead -- of the versal cube is the synthoton of the multilevelate triate, the unonic needle's eye from -- or through -- which the versate blossoms into being.
In our journey to the universe of archetypicality and our exploration
of the unity concept, you and I have thus far experienced only
a few brief glimpses of the unifier. Though vital to the
unity, the unifier is not a part of the unity. It is external
to the unity.
A unity is always the multo-unity of its
identifying triate, which can be a central or lateral triate.
Thus, a heterolevelate unity is a trilevelate view
of a multiate. It is the proto-unity of a multiate.
The proto-unital prototons are the triatal multiatons.
The proto-unital synthoton is the mutual triatal multiatonic
responsiveness to the triatal focalate (through the diffluate).
And the proto-unital versotons are those unital versotons
that include, in their being, versotonic projections of only the
Every individual reality has its existence upheld in a triate, known as its triate of identity, or identifying triate, in which it is the multo-unity, also known as the identified reality.
Inherent in the law of triate identity is the triatonic progression,
the movement of a reality from the role of a given triaton in
one triate to the additional role of another kind of triaton in
another triate, without leaving the first role. The triatonic
progression is from a multiatic proto-unity to
a focalate to a diffluate. A given reality
always begins its existence as an identified reality in
the multiatic proto-unity of its identifying triate.
Then, finalateward, it may take on the role of focalate
in a second triate (or triates), being empowered over the multiate
in this second triate by the diffluate of this same second triate.
As a focalate in the second triate, it brings the multo-unity
of the second triate into being, including any segments
of the multo-unity: lateral multo-unities (lateral proto-unities).
To ascend or descend the diamond ladder is to journey
overateward (outward) or partateward (inward), respectively.
Consider, if you will, that you and I approach, with the mobility
of imaginative thought, a triate.
The focalate of a unity's triate of identity is the unifier of that unity. Being the unifier, it is not visible from within the unity. Unseen, creative, vibrant with potentiality, it hovers outside the unity. The oneness of the unity is the presence of the one unifier not only in, but between, the unitants; therefore, the unity is synergistic in nature: supersummative with respect to all of its parts, the unitons. The unitons exhibit extra-unitonic properties because they are unified by an extra-unitonic reality. Not a part of the unity, the unifier is the continuing source of the unity and manifests a presence, a projection of itself, which is perceived in and over the unity as a pervasive harmony.
An estate is one reality status-of-being in contrast
with some other reality status-of-being. Considering unital
functions as estates, for example, one could refer to a unifier
as occupying the unifier estate and a unitant as inhabiting
the unitantial estate. Or, considering unitonic identity
as an estate, prototons occupy the prototonic estate, while
versotons are members of the versotonic estate. With respect
to subunital plane of residency as an estatal category, prototons
occupy the protoplanic estate and versotons the versoplanic
Functional alignment -- a relationship -- is
the secret of trans-estatism. A given relationship is an initio-relationship
(and its designator treated as a verb) while it is being
established, after which it becomes a subso-relationship
(and the same descriptor treated as an adjective). Consider
the concept of penetrating, as in the statement: the
wire penetrates the wall. This could signify either: (1)
the initial act of the wire piercing the wall, or
(2) the subsequent relationship of the wire comprising
a structural intersection of the wall. The wire first actionally
initio-penetrates the wall, then ceases that action
and takes up a subsequent relationship of subso-penetrating
Accompanying any given manifestation of trans-estatism
is an identical but oppositely directed trans-estatal manifestation,
the two constituting two trans-estatal cycles. In one
cycle, one of the two realities involved is primary,
attaining to function in the estate of the other reality
and as the other reality. In the remaining cycle, the
other reality is the primary reality. Both
complementary cycles of trans-estatism must exist in order for
either to exist, a requirement known as the law of expandent
Translevelence, whose verb form is translevelate,
is trans-estatism applied to a levelatic estatism, where
levelates are estates. (Another trans-estatism
might be, for example, trans-dimensionalism, where dimensions
are estates). Unital translevelence is translevelence
applied to the unity mechanism. One cycle of unital translevelence
is unifier-unitant translevelence, in which a unifier
also functions in the estate of one or more of its unitants
through alignment with the unitant (or unitants). The
other cycle of unital translevelence is unitant-unifier translevelence,
in which a unitant (or unitants) also functions at the levelate
of its (their) unifier through alignment with its (their) unifier.
Those triatal versotons that incorporate the periphate in their
beings are called periphatal versotons. They are: the
periphate, the interactate (composed of periphate-centrate),
the reactate (composed of periphate-omnate), and the structate
(composed of periphate-centrate-omnate). The four periphatal
versotons are also called the periphons. The periphate
is the only pure periphon, for each multitronic
periphon is a combination of the periphate with some other versoton
or versotons. Those versotons that do not include the periphate
in their beings are named the exoperiphons, also called
the exoperiphates. They are the centrate and the
omnate -- which are both monotrons -- and
the actate, a duotron (composed of centrate-omnate).
Let us observe the world through the eyes of a
unitant in a unity. Visible to our gaze are our co-unitants as
they function in various situations. To our direct senses they
are the unital prototons -- complete, independent
realities. But there gradually experientializes in our minds
increasing awareness of the versotonic realities -- the
roles of the prototons singly and in combination as
committed, maturing versotonic realities of the unity. And
we can perceive this versotonicity only because we espy the synthotonic
oneness of the unitants at the synthoplanic levelate of the
unity. Thus we recognize the versotons as specialized presences
of the prototons -- or, more accurately, as specialized
presences of the directons.
Within the unity, the unital protoplane
is the ground on which we, as unital prototons, walk with sure
feet. Here spreads the entire prototonically sensible
unital universe. Here tread men and women; here spin dust motes;
here echo musical notes: realities in unassociated phases.
A triate can more properly be referred to as a
triate-unity, for every triate is an identifying
triate, within whose being arises an identified multo-unity.
From within our unity, the blue sky above us is the plumblessness
of the triate of identity of which our multiatic proto-unital
universe is only a part.
In a unity, the unitantial prototons find themselves,
under some unseen influence, developing a harmony in their roles
as the versotons and bringing out, in their versotonically unified
diversity, synergistic and transcendent realities. This is the
influence of the unifier. The unifier is invisible -- in
a sense, is the blue, encompassing heavens, beyond the
direct attainment of the unitons. As manifest in the versoplane,
the unifier is the exon -- actually, part
of the exon (but such a sub-exonic distinction is unobservable
from within the unity). In between the unattainable, absolute
unifier and the finite unitants, however, is the complex, transtransonic
link between unitant and unifier. This link is the associon,
lying completely outside the endon (the versotonic realm
of the unity), but realitized jointly through endon and exon -- or
rather through sublevelate components of endon and exon. Thus,
the associon is seen to be an interlink with reference
to periphatally centered realities.
Stepping back from the details of the picture that
you and I have drawn, we see that each transon is the versate
of an individual heterolevelate reality known as a transonate.
The endon is the versate of a transonate named the endonate,
a heterolevelate unity whose prototons are the triatal
multiatons, whose synthoton is the featureless, unquantifiable
triatal synthoton, and whose versate is the triatal periphate,
the endon. The endonate is the verso-unity, syntho-unity,
and multo-unity of the triatal endon, synthoton,
and multiate, respectively.
One can visualize the triatal versate in terms
of a non-periphatally-centered, rather than a periphatally-centered,
reference frame -- for example, a centratally-centered
reference frame. Instead of the periphonic perspective,
such a reference frame embodies the centronic perspective.
The centronic selectons are called centrons. The
constituent factors of the centronic versate lie in centratal
versotonic groupings rather than in the periphonic versate.
Thus the transons in the centronic versate have the same names -- endon,
associon, and exon -- as the transons in
the periphonic versate. But the centronic endon -- the
endon of the centronic versate -- is the
centrate, not the periphate. The centronic exon
is the grouping of the omnate, periphate, and reactate
(omnate-periphate). And the centronic associon is composed
of the actate (centrate-omnate), the interactate
(centrate-periphate), and the structate (centrate-omnate-periphate).
The transons in this perspective are called the immanons,
being viewed from outside the unity and being the means
by which the focalate establishes a patterning presence in the
unity, both on a total scale and in every unitant and uniton of
What, you and I ask ourselves, as we regard in our minds
the shimmering, darting realities of the triate-unity, is the
triatal product? In the homolevelate view, the product
of the triate is the multiate, a singlatic, overate
entity of unspecified mutality, crafted from all of the individual
multiatons. In the fullness of the heterolevelate perspective,
it is a counterpart of that, the singlatic periphate, an
experientially mutalized reality. And much more.
As you and I contemplate these things, a conceptual
door swings open to us. Beyond this door hovers a unity unlike
any we have yet encountered. It is a biunity, a structurate
generally familiar to you and me. But its unitants seem
out of place. To understand the significance of this multiunity
and its biunitants, you and I must learn about unitence
and its related factors.
You might wonder whether the concept of unitence
displaces the role of the diffluate as the medium of influence
between focalatic unifier and multo-unital unitant. No. Unitence
is a single, golden thread winding through focalate, diffluate,
multiate, and multiaton alike, joining them together as a cohesive
whole. Unitence facilitates the focalate-diffluate junction
as well as the diffluate-multiate interface. Unitence
enables the unifier to guide and the unitant
to follow in the harmony of the unity. As the unseen distributor
of unity to a vast universe of things and beings high and low,
simple and complex, unitence is unity.
To speak of more than one unitence is a
contradiction in terms. However, even though unitence is one
non-localized universal reality, one can in certain instances
refer to "a" unitence, implying localization:
one unitence, as contrasted with another unitence.
For to the observation of non-unitences, unitence can
individuate as a manifestation of apparently non-unialitized unitence:
pure unitence. It accomplishes this localized diminishment
of quantitative -- but not qualitative -- universality
through association with what is called a unitent uniality -- the
equivalent of a uniality that, to non-unitences, is itself near
enough to the estate of unitence to be indistinguishable from
the universal unitence of its association.
To visualize unitentions, one can imagine sucking small bubbles of air into various areas of a large, thin sheet of rubber. This creates bobbing, balloonlike spheres, each of which one then twists into stability, trapping the air inside it. The rubber sheet in this analogy is undifferentiated unitence. Each encompassing rubber sphere is a unitention, a localization of unitence, regardless of whether the unitention is a unipotention or a unitivention. The air inside a given sphere, which gives form and identity to that individual unitention, is the unitention's uniality. Combined air and rubber sphere is the unitron. Unitent delocalization is visualized as one of the bubbles being either untwisted or not twisted completely, the air escaping, and the thin rubber of the former sphere thickening and returning to its previous unstrained, unassociated phase.
You and I are fast approaching, now, a conceptual
area where unity pervades on all sides, where concept takes on
increasing aspects of convergence, where difference becomes increasingly
elusive. But we continue to pursue the visualization that is
developing in our awarenesses, for the lack of conceptual resolution
between ideational similarities effectively bars basic insight
and the profound understanding that depends upon it.
With these unitence-related factors in our understanding, you
and I can now comprehendingly examine the unusual biunity before
us. A unitent multiunity is a multiunity whose directons
are unitentions -- either unipotentions or
unitiventions. The directiatons in all the sub-directiatal
planes of the unitent directiate are thus unitentions, and the
subordiatons in all the sub-subordiatal planes of the corresponding
subordiate are unialities.
You and I know that each of the versotonic unitentions
in the unitent biunity before us must be allied with a uniality
or else disappear from existence, through unitent delocalization.
The function of the completiate is to provide the complo-versatal
fusing chamber where the versotonic unitentions can unialitize
into the light of existence by aligning themselves with the subordoversotonic
unialities of the subordiate.
Because the reality that you and I are investigating
is a unitent biunity, we shall center our exploration around the
four unitogrates of which the biunity is one: the unitent biunity,
its associated unitent bidirectiate, its associated unitent
bisubordiate, and its associated unitent bicompletiate.
(The term, unitent, in the designation of each of these
integriates refers to the nature of the directon of their basiate.
Thus, even the subordiate, which possesses only unialities and
no unitentions, is called a unitent subordiate.) The unitent
biunital unitogrates are called biunifiates. The biunifiates
and their components, we shall refer to with special names deriving
from descriptors of triatal function (unipotate,
unitivate) rather than descriptors of biunital constitution,
for, as we shall see, unipotent biunities give birth to
As the directoversotonic unitentions of
a biunitratiate become unified, in the bicompletiatal experium,
with the subordoversotonic unialities supplied by the bisubordiate,
the composite unitentions-unialities transmute into the
unitrons of the bicompletiatal comploversate; and the biunity
increasingly transmutes into a bicompletiate, a complo-biunitratiate
whose completiatons -- comploprototons and comploversotons -- are
all unitrons, each partra-unified within itself, all
A unitent multiunity must be a completial multiunity.The complo-biunitratiatal duotron's unitronic unitention is provided by the directo-biunitratiatal duotron, the combined versotonic projection of the unitentions donated to the directo-biunitratiate by the prototonic unitrons of the fracto-biunitratiate. The complo-biunitratiatal duotron's unitronic unialities are provided by the subordo-biunitratiatal duotron, the combined versotonic projection of the unialities donated to the subordo-biunitratiate by the prototonic unitrons of the fracto-biunitratiate. Similarly, the complo-biunitratiate's unitent monotrons unitronize in the unitron-populated complo-biunitratiate, their unitronic unitentions and unialities deriving from the directons and subordons, respectively, of the fracto-biunitratiate via the directiate and subordiate, respectively.
The prototonically donated unialities (called prototonic unialities) are subject to the control of the unitentions of the fracto-biunitratiate's prototonic unitrons, whether these unialities are the unitronic unialities: (1) of the prototons themselves (thus being called direct, or endionic, unialities) or (2) of multiatons in triates in which the prototons are focalates (thus being called indirect, or exionic, unialities). In the former case, it is unitivences that are being unified in the unitent biunity, which is thus a unitivent biunity; in the latter case, it is unipotences that are being unified in the unitent biunity, which is thus a unipotent biunity.
All that has been said, in this discussion, of biunifiates -- unitent biunities and their co-unitogrates -- can be said, more generally, of multiunifiates. In order for the unitent versotons in a unifiatal multiunity to unitronize, each unifiatal fracto-multiunital prototon -- unitron -- must consist of a perfectly unified, or partra-unified, unitention and unialities (endionic or exionic). Only in this way will each prototon be able to convey unialities that it controls to its unitent versotonic offspring. Also, for each possible grouping of multiunital prototons, the prototonic unialities that the grouping conveys must align with one another in the multisubordiatal versoplane as a single conjoint uniality corresponding to a unitent directoversoton of the multidirectiate.
A triniate is a unitent multiunity that incorporates
trions in its being. A unitent biunity, multiple
as (2:1:3), is a triniate, because it is a unitent multiunity
and its versotons are trions. Since its trions, which
qualify it to be a triniate, are radions, this type of
triniate, a unitent biunity, is called a biunital triniate,
or radiative triniate, also known as a radio-triniate.
Unipotate and unitivate are relative terms relating to function within a specific triate. A prototon that commits its unipotence to a multiunity is contributing its unitence as it pertains to triates in which the prototon is the unipotate. It is contributing its regencies, or rulerships -- its crowns. A prototon which commit its unitivence to a multiunity is contributing its unitence -- its subjectedness, or responsiveness -- as pertains to triates in which it is a unitivate.
The three comploversotons of a biunipotatiate can form an immediately finalateward triate in which the three comploversotons are the triatal prototons. Such a triate, which results from the conjoining of two ancestral prototons in the biunipotatiate, is called a coniate. The focalate of a coniate, in creating the multo-unity of the triate of its focalateness, thereby becoming a unipotate, is a conjoint creator, the creative conjointness of the two ancestral prototons in the biunipotatiate. The coniatal focalate is a conjoint unipotate, called a conipotate, which is a conjoint unipoton, called a conipoton. The coniatal diffluate and multiate are conjoint unitivates -- conitivates -- which are conjoint unitivons -- conitivons. The conjoint unipotention of a conipotate or conitivate is called a conipotention. The conjoint uniality of a conipotate or conitivate is called a coniality. A coniatal focalate, diffluate, or multiate is referred to as a conio-focalate, conio-diffluate, or conio-multiate, respectively.
The two-story combination of a unipotent biunity
and a unipotent triunity -- a radiative and gravitative
unipotent triniate -- that is, a biunipotatiate and its
resultant, immediately finalateward coniate, is called a trinitivity.
A trinitivity is primalate in the two unipotonic biunital, or
radio-triniatal, prototons and finalate in the seven unipotonic
triatal, or gravio-triniatal, versotons -- more
accurately, in the seven unipotonic gravio-triniatal comploversotons.
The radiative phase of a trinitivity, the biunipotatiate, is
called the radium. The gravitative phase of a trinitivity,
the coniate, is called the gravium.
The unitentions -- directons -- in a trinitivity
can only be unipotentions and not unitiventions.
The unitivons creating a unitivent biunity, or biunitivatiate,
can contribute some of their endionic, or direct, unialities to
the radiumic subordoversotons and hence to the radiumic comploversotons.
But such radiumic comploversotons, being unitivons, can possess
no unialities other than endionic unialities to contribute
in turn to the graviumic subordoprototons, hence to the graviumic
comploprototons and the finalateward graviumic comploversotons;
therefore, the graviumic comploversotons, as well as the radiumic
comploversotons, both would be unialitized from the radiumic prototons,
reducing the supposed trinitivital gravium to merely an auxiliary
unitivent multiunity and not producing a true two-story trinitivity.
The co-biunital components of a duo-biunity each
can be the radium of an individual trinitivity, the two trinitivities
sharing a common duo-prototon in the radiumic protoplane, a common
duo-monotron in the radiumic versoplane, a common duo-prototon
in the graviumic protoplane, and a common duo-monotron in the
graviumic versoplane. These common unitons are simply the same
uniton in finalateward projections. The two trinitivities thus
interconnected are collectively called a duo-trinitivity
and individually called co-trinitivities.
Trinitivital duons, occurring as the radiumic prototons, are called duvons. Trinitivital trions, the radiumic comploversotons (which are also the graviumic prototons), are called trivons. And trinitivital septons, occurring as the graviumic comploversotons, are called sevons.
Triniates and trinitivities are known as trinates,
also as treities. Trinates, whether single-storied, as
in triniates, or double-storied, as in trinitivities, possess
pure unitentions as directons.
