The two-dimensional shapes associated with our primary models are not unique to Quadernity. The areas demarcated around a simple cross, and the areas within and around overlapping circles, have all been used freely and variously in the public domain. Only through morning visions did these common symbols acquire meaningful labels and specially coined names to identify the aspects emerging to interact upon their otherwise static shapes. The fresh alignment of dynamic functions with the timeless generic shapes is what justifies calling them models of Quadernity.
Same but Different
Both the original Chalkboard Quadrants and the Pragmatic Schematic (PS) provide different perspectives of the complementary processes, OUTformation and INformation. Activities archetypally attributed to Female and Male causal agents allow the pair to engage in feedback.
From the earliest chalkboard visions, both Female and Male Subjects Pull INput, Transition (process or exchange it) and Push OUTput (an Object at the effect of the three actions). Forming a feedback loop, the INput for one is the OUTput of the other.
Below, the feedback loop is illustrated in two ways. On the left, the feedback looks like a sharply zig-zagged figure-eight infinity loop, and on the right, the arrows form a rectangular circuitry.
In the upper quadrants, the invisible metaphysical domain, the Female Pulls to initiate Her sequence of triple actions, Pull * Transition * Push.
In the lower quadrants, the visible physical domain, the Male Pulls to initiate His sequence of triple actions, PTP.
The partners’ inverse actions are reflected above, in both the flowchart and the chalkboard quadrants flanking it. Following the Female arrows, we see Her Pull in the upper quadrants, Her Transition going downward to Her Push in the lower quadrants. Following the Male arrows, it is reversed; His triple actions go from lower to upper quadrants.
In Quadernity, the metaphysical domain in the upper quadrants is called the Private Nighttime Relationship. There, the intimate exchange between partners is warmly recognized at the human scale as intercourse. A mingled-in and out of sight property prevails.
The physical domain in lower quadrants is called the Public Daytime Relationship. There, entropy radiates (as OUTput) from the Informative Object to be consumed (as INput) by an Informable Subject, whose observation (the singling out of an event) gives the signal significance. In other words, observation and interpretation are what make something MATTER, in both the physical and meaningful senses of the word.
The Subjects Pull, Transition, and Push, exchanging Objects between them across dual domains. From their cycles of mutual influence, we ourselves arise, symbiotically possessing both discreet qualia of Consciousness and discrete quanta of Corporeality.
The PS, overlaid on a torus as seen below right, gives excellent insight into how the metaphysical domain transcends the physical domain, while highlighting the difference between a singled-out, linear relationship (lower quadrants/inner domain) and a mingled-in, non-linear relationship (upper quadrants/outer domain).
Below are additional artistic ways to express the upper-metaphysical and lower-physical domains and the relationships that occur within them:
The engraving in the lower right above shows the Female and Male singled out from their private Rest, two separate individuals entwined. Their personified imagery is equivalent in the abstract to the interior of the big torus on the left. The couple’s branches and roots diverge and mingle in with the fluid design around the plate’s rim, which mimics the interwoven netting of the torus.
The image, upper right, of the human surrounded by a magnetic field shows incoming arrows at the bottom, Pulling up from the grounded Earth. Male derives His input from the Female, Mother Earth. Outgoing arrows Push upward from His head into the Heavenly sky. Both consciousness and Father Sky are archetypally Male.
Comparing the graphics below, we begin on the left with a vertical flow, equivalent to the images just above, and then rotate to a horizontal flow.
Notice the same labels from above are now spelled out in each set of overlapping circles below. As it is in the torus above, the physical domain is in the center. In Venn Diagrams, this is the area of mutuality. And so it is in the Pragmatic Schematic, which effectively describes the dynamics of Quadernity; within its central overlap, BOTH the Female and the Male are visible and singled-out. Female Matter Pushes Substance and the Male Mind Pulls it into Structures.
The Transitions of Female and Male occupy the outer crescents, as they are opposites. Outside, beyond the Pragmatic Schematic, is the transcendent, metaphysical domain, in which the lovers lose themselves in each other. There they are invisible and mingled-in. In this realm, NEITHER the records of collective consciousness nor the infinite potentiality are comprehensible.
2 + 2 = 4 vs. 3 + 1 = 4
The 2-by-2 model of Quadernity and the 3+1 model of Quadernity are dynamically equivalent; however, they provide alternate perspectives of the fundamental dynamism inherent in all entity-systems.
In the image below, the Chinese Adam (Fuxi) holds a tool that makes right angles (used in the 2-by-2 model) while Eve (Nuwa) holds a tool that makes circles (used in the 3+1 model).
We recall from the chapter Geometry of Universal Mother and Father that curved lines are associated with the Female, and that rectilinear lines and angles are associated with the Male.
Curiously, the book of Genesis in the Holy Bible says God (who is purportedly the Father in Heaven, and Male/angular) creates the heavens and the earth. The older scripture, the Tao te Ching, says that the Mother (Female/curvy) is the root of heaven and earth.
The animated and narrated video below summarizes and elaborates on what has been covered in this chapter:
Having thoroughly established the equivalency of the two-by-two Quadrants and the three-plus-one Pragmatic Schematic, we acknowledge what these two models have in common. In both, we see an exquisitely balanced marriage/partnership between Female and Male functionaries, who dynamically cooperate, interrelating their cycles of Pull * Transition * Push * Rest so that each allows the other to continuously oscillate between Subjective potentiality and Objective actuality.
In the upcoming chapter our 2-by-2 chalkboard Quadrants and the 3+1 Pragmatic Schematic will be joined by multi-dimensional Cylindrical Lattice Model.
All of the Quadernity models serve as meditation tools for research, problem-solving, and intentional enhancement. Each Quadernity model, however, provides slightly different insights. As you internalize the deeper meanings of Quadernity, it will become your second-nature to know which model provides the most appropriate perspective for a given situation.
