In pattern recognition we detect behaviors, stimuli, or appearances that are consistent across various scales, time frames, or expressed by diverse entities. Even more important than noticing a commonality is that we home-in on the precise nature of that detected generality.
Bringing a wide-spread generality to precise prominence may seem oxymoronic; and yet, this is the exact endeavor of Quadernity!
Quadernity is the common denominator of all entity/systems, despite differences in names/properties/attributes and regardless of scale. Unique in its universality, Quadernity is fundamental/essential to every dynamic enterprise, including that of the Universe itself.
- The Universe INforms holographically, meaning that anything knowable can be known anywhere-when. Also, the Universe OUTforms fractally, meaning that it is self-similar at all scales, adhering — as it does throughout — to a singular dynamism.
- The dynamic Universe oscillates: it is constantly unfolding and enfolding, descending and ascending, involving and evolving, OUTforming and INforming.
Early on in this blog-book, the term ECP (Eternal Comprehensive Perfection) was offered as a unifier to side-step preconceived ideas and conditioned prejudices associated with the numerous names for the Divine: God, Brahman, Allah, Elohim, Jehovah, Deus/Zeus/Jupiter, Amun-Ra, Ahura Mazda, Nirankar, the Tao, that One…to name a few. With the same optimism, the terms SPIN and SPAN are entered into the parlance of Quadernity.
Spin and Span are more generalized, and more comprehensive, than the countless specialized terms they cover for. Being more general does not, however, mean they are less precise. For example, Pull and Push might be thought of as directionally opposite movements, like an inhalation (inward and down) and an exhalation (upward and out). Direct opposition is a difference of 180 degrees, a linear comparison. The term Spin, however, implies angular momentum.
Vortices Spin, coiling inwardly, tightening toward a single point. Spin Pulls and twists inwardly.
The circling intension of Spin and the radial extension of Span are always found together, even if one is more obvious than the other. Looking carefully, we will find that, in the two images above, both Spin and Span are present. One is brought to our attention while the other might easily slip by unnoticed:
- It is within a Span of water that the vortex Spins.
- It is from a Spin (the oxidation reaction that consumes the fuel) that the Span of particulate is hurled.
When a Subject Spins (Cause) an Object Spans (Effect)
In both of the examples depicted above, Spin is active and Span is passive. Just as in PTPR, where Pull is the first and causal action taken by the Subject (whether Female or Male).
Once disturbed, the Subject harbors a potential motive force. Spin is the action taken to relieve the built-up (potential) energy that was triggered by an environmental change.
Spinning with an open boundary draws from the outside, expanding the Subject’s “inside-space”.
Spinning with a closed boundary contracts the Subject’s inside-space, expelling it to the outside-space.
The Span of a Subject’s inside and outside spaces is increased or decreased by how it Spins.
Span is the effect of Spin. Exhalation (Span) is the automatic effect of inhalation (Spin). Producing OUTput (Span) is the effect of receiving INput (Spin).
Subject-Verb-Object, or S-V-O, is built right into the syntax of our language. To read more about this, go to Essential Vocabulary: Subjectivity and Objectivity.
Spin and Span Draw Parallels That Otherwise are Missed
Gradually we glean the elegance that these single syllables signify; Spin and Span are terms to which we can ascribe (and, therefore, by which we can streamline) the study of all movement and change throughout the universe.
Movements are provoked by gradients of Spin and Span:
- Centripetal force, gravity (large-scale) and the strong force (small-scale) are special instances of Spin greater than Span.
- Centrifugal force, electro-magnetic radiation (large-scale) and the weak force (small-scale) are special examples of Spin less than Span.
- Neutrality, stasis, balance, orbits, boundaries, parameters, etc., and what Quadernity calls Particularities, are all instances of Spin equal to Span.
Though not in our vernacular (as yet) Spin and Span are archetypal, in that all movements and changes can be traced to this pair of inverse action-verbs. Verbs that would not be thought synonymous can be aligned under one or the other of the overarching terms, Spin or Span, bringing universal patterns to light.
