The return of origin

Following up on the last post, I commented on it in this IPS thread due to the ‘return on a higher dimension’ theme. We don’t keep getting more and more complex (via deficient rationality) but we fold back into previous levels and more fully integrate them. It’s a similar development to Spiral Dynamics, where the so-called second tier is in fact a higher dimension of the first tier. 2nd tier begins with yellow annotated A’-N’ to show its relationship with beige (A-N). Hence 2nd tier is in one sense a return to the ‘origin’ of beige but with a shift from the subsistence issues in the 1st tier to the ‘being’ issues in 2nd tier. The image used for this relation is the double helix, which recalls the same image used by Goddard (referenced earlier in this thread) in his similar notion of a return-integration of previous levels.
