ADEPT Natures

Mode of iteration

ADEPT has a view of reality which is essentially relational as opposed to metaphysical systems that are focused on a reality composed of substances.  As such, one of the core features is the modes in which reality can iterate upon itself from simple original concepts to complex iterative ones.  Nature is the third and final axiomatic ontological construct that pertains to the rules governing the modes of iteration. 

Five Natures

Here are the five ADEPT natures with brief description:

  • Aether Nature (H) - origination of iteration
  • Translation Nature (T) - symbolic instantiation and iteration
  • Ground Nature (G) - productive iteration
  • Being Nature (B) - volitional iteration
  • Light Nature (L) - extension and termination of iteration

Nature and Consideration

The ADEPT natures can also be understood as sub-groupings within the three considerations:

  1. The first consideration (channels [t],[u],[w])contains the aether nature 
  2. The second consideration (channels [t],[u],[v],[w]) contains the translation nature
  3. The third consideration (channels [w],[x],[y],[z]) contains the light, ground and being natures

Diagramming Nature

Aether

ADEPT diagram, aether nature

  • The Aether Nature (H) is the mode of origination for all ADEPT nodes.
  • It has no defining pattern requirement and thus is present for all ADEPT nodes.
  • It is iterative through the thing [t], use [u], subject [x], object [y] and source [z] channels according to the corresponding pool assignment.

Translation

  • The Translation Nature (T) is the mode of symbolism for all ADEPT nodes.
  • It is defined by the presence of an incoming variety [v] channel that can be either self- or other-referencing.  
  • It is iterative through the word [w] channel.
  • Convention holds that any Alyx node with a self-referencing variety channel represents the encoding (ie. unicode) of the symbol found as the value of its required "variable" property.

Light

  • The Light Nature (L) is the mode of extension and termination for a subset of ADEPT nodes of the 3rd consideration.
  • It is defined by the pattern of an absent, or optional shadow process in the source channel.
  • It is not iterative, or "terminal".

Ground

  • The Ground Nature (G) is the mode of production for a subset of ADEPT nodes of the 3rd consideration.
  • It is defined by the pattern of an incoming manifest process in the source channel.
  •  It is iterative through the thing [t], use [u], subject [x], object [y] and source [z] channels according to the corresponding pool assignment.


Being

  • The Being Nature (B) is the mode of volition for a subset of ADEPT nodes of the 3rd consideration.
  • It is defined by the pattern of a manifest process in the source channel which shares a manifest translation with the manifest ascription in the subject channel and/or the manifest description in the object channel. 
  • It is iterative through the thing [t], use [u], subject [x], object [y] and source [z] channels according to the corresponding pools assignment.
