The all Father of Creation, one in Nature,
three in kind. In mythic, i.e., personified mode. Abstracted
it means 'The Glue and Solvent of the Universe', namely
the RELATIONS possible between anything and anything else
Relations come in three kinds only, neither
more nor less. In terms of wave mechanics one gets harmony,
disharmony and no noise at all. Logically there is a connection,
an opposite to that, or no connection. Personified it is:
friend, enemy, nothing at all.
In numbers + - and 0, where zero can mean
balanced to zero or nothing observable, fixed or mutable,
etc. For Drama it becomes protagonist, antagonist and tritagonist
for action at a distance: meanwhile back in the forest.
Thus, as a Universal, it comes in many guises and namable
in many ways. It constitutes the ground and basis of representation
out of which communication was begotten.
It was used in a symbolic, geometric [sacred
first] and algebraic mode and, in a historical sense marks
the shift from the hominid into humanoid as onomatopoeic
and poly synaesthetic representation misnamed by modern
anthropology as magic. Out of this gradually developed all
branches of knowledge, which required communication to convert
man into mankind. The whole scholemozzle may still be detected
as used up
to right now and, one surmises, well beyond.
Quantum Theory has not escaped from it either.
There's much more to it than that as the
options as to which of the three paths to use makes a garden
of forked paths well prior to working out how to apply it
by way of maintenance, destruction and creation of THINGS
and ACTIONS. And thus the gleam in the eye of the beholder
turns into common property, the obvious and given, as a
shared delusion and illusion, fantasy and fiction about
"reality" and where, quite definitely, no enlightenment
is to be found. Worked out to its full extensions it makes
some 5.1 with 19 zeros of sausage machines. Understood as
a whole, and experienced and as applied it constitutes:
the Holy Unspeakable Name of GOD, praised be his name.
Now, by the same law: the penny will drop
immediately in non-dual eternity, on reflection in time,
by demonstration in space or not at all in any kind of Eternity.
This is also known as the four corners of the universe.
One interesting version of it is John Conway Horton's "Game
of Life". Nowadays we would have to add a fifth item as
conveyance in virtual reality, which is where and how it
all begun anyhow. Sixths it comes as understanding, which,
as a whole and seventh makes up "the Other and Third World"
in which we live, move and have our imaginary being. Understanding
comes as: concentration, meditation and contemplation.
