    The line of nine loci:

    Nine on the line of nine loci is a component of the dichotomy of ten. The shadow of nine therefore is: 10 - 9 = 1. On the line.
    Stay on the line. Eight on the line of nine loci is a component of the dichotomy of ten.
    The shadow of eight therefore is: 10 - 8 = 2. On the line.
    Stay on the line. The shadow of 7: 10 - 7 = 3. The shadow of 6: 10 - 6 = 4. m does not shadow.

    The line of eight loci:

    Eight on the line of eight loci is a dichotomy of nine. 9 - 8 = 1; 9 - 7 = 2; 9 - 6 = 3; 9 - 5 = 4. Nine is an odd number: no m in the number.

    The line of seven loci:
    On the line of seven loci 7 is a component of the dichotomy of eight. 8 - 7 = 1; 8 - 6 = 2;
    8 - 5 = 3. m does not shadow.

    The line of six loci:
    1 + 6 = 7; 7 - 6 = 1; 7 - 5 = 2; 7 - 4 = 3. An odd number (7) does not m.

    The line of five loci:
    A dichotomy of six. 6 - 5 = 1; 6 - 4 = 2; m = 6/2 = 3. No shadow.

    The line of four loci:
    A dichotomy of 4 + 1. 5 - 4 = 1; 5 - 3 = 2

    The line of three loci:
    A dichotomy of four. 4 - 3 = 1. m does not shadow.

    The line of two loci:
    A dichotomy of three. 3 - 2 = 1. The shadow of 3 = 1. An odd number does not center in number.

    The line of one loci.
    A dichotomy of two. m does not shadow.

    It is the position in the context of the whole that determines the action.
    We can call it common sense. Well put.

    1. I don't understand what the space of zero means.
    2. I don't understand what the numbers have to do with typology.
    3. I don't understand what the connection is between the different matrices.

    Can you explain?

    Its a way of understanding what is around us in a very subjective yet logical manner.
    Im out, its been fun

    A connection has been made between ordering/rearranging of the numbers and the ordering of the shadow functions. Think visual spatial in a sense. They fit the same logical framework and he is basically proving that they fit. Once we understand the framework in which they fit we can then basically dance with it.

    With me my strength is thereoms as opposed to the type of math that wildcat uses. I shift and rearrange in a different manner then he does.

    Ok, Wildcat, I think I am in love with you. I can't remember when I was last so fascinated. I catch little glimmers here and there but that's all. The glimmers are exciting, though.

    What is this kind of math called?

    Thank you poci, Tiltyred and ThatsWhatHeSaid.

    Poci explained the thing from the objective standpoint. I could not have done it better.
    I fill some details only.

    What the numbers have to do with typology?
    There is the play and the field. The numbers of the loci is the field. The numbers in the loci is the play.


    The space of the zero. A good question.

    How many loci?
    5 X 5


    0

    How many loci?
    1 X 1


    The typology has a long history. It started with the Greeks. We have the postulation of Jung and Eysenck and many others.
    The MBTI is not a thing apart. The whole is in the part.

    Metonymy and synecdoche, but with numbers.
