I’m seeing parallel dimensions across the vocabulary:
point->line->plane(area)->shape(object)->shape in motion (entity)
orientation(point)->dimension(plane)->object(area)->model(shape)->entity (model in time)
observer(point)-observation(line)->entity(?)->map (shape)->simulation (map in time)
observation->constant relation(line)->dimension(plane)->parallel dimensions (shape)->Pure relations (parallel dimensions in time)
And these appear to be domains or orders of scale
Ideal (orientation->dimension->object->model->entity (bridges to the next domain))
Real (observer-observation->entity(?)->map->simulation (bridges to the next domain))
Intuited (predictive)(observation->constant relation->dimension->parallel dimensions(map)->Pure relations(simulation))
Pure relations as composites of constant relations – as objects are to models/entities. Lines as composites of points, planes as composites of lines, shapes as composites of planes, entities as composites of shapes, maps as composites of entities, simulations as composites of maps (composites of changes to the map)
Anyway – I had a much better write-up that was lost. This gets the gist across though.
