This is the site of an ongoing inquiry and exploration. It begins with consideration of 1, 2 and 3, but not as counting numbers.
This symbol has two important and distinct senses. It may be used to indicate the notion of unity, in which case it contrasts with the void. This is its metaphysical sense. It may also be taken as the origin of the counting numbers, in which case one stands in contrast to multiplicity, or the 10,000 things. We employ it here as Unity.
Duality arises now and allows consideration of reciprocity and relation. This opens the door to consideration of complementarity, and of mimesis.
The triad now greatly expands our considerations. With triurne forms things begin to get rich. Participatory methexis arises.
