This site is about the phenomena of "three" which at times may express some quantitative value, and/or qualitative value, and/or quintessential-tative value as applied or implied. (In other, more common words... different people may use a given example for a specific reason and rationale that another may not use in the same manner or at all.) Education and experiences along with interests can and do vary widely from one person to the next.

In my research I have found multiple alternative references to the "phenomena of three" to the extent one might encounter (for example) such labels as:

  • groups of three
  • sets of three
  • three-patterned ensembles (see for example: The Devil's Advocate page 14A)
  • patterns-of-three
  • two plus one
  • five minus two
  • seven plus or minus two (yielding a 5-7-9 triple)... [This is seen in the oft' cited paper: The Magical Number Seven, Plus or Minus Two by George A. Miller]
  • triad(s), trinity(s), Trimurti, triple(s), triangle(s), triplet...
  • ternary (such as in a ternary computer code as opposed to a binary code)
  • etc...

Let me also make reference to ideas such as: three items in close proximity to one another and three connected events which may take place over a short, medium, or long period of time in one area and time period or multiple areas and time periods. Widely spread time periods and places give some researchers and casual readers a point to argue about concerning groups of three, since their mentality is to believe in only those patterns with items taking place at the same time in the same sentence, paragraph or story in a given text and do not allow for examples to be constructed over vast distances, time periods or different cultures. They feel that such a methodology is akin to "fudging the numbers" on a tax return or accounting ledger and others colloquially suggest that one can find any pattern if one looks for it... even though they overlook and fail to comment that not all patterns are either easily identifiable or readily available to provide an example thereof.

Research into the "threes phenomena" also involves single "three" or 3rd place references such as the Earth being in the 3rd position from a source of solar energy. No less, it involves patterns-of-three which may be exhibited as numbers, letters, sounds, sensations, or any other perceptual phenomena that may require augmentation such as using a telescope, microscope, binoculars, oscilloscope, or other devices.

In a way, my assertion about the "three" may well be viewed by some as an aggressive (instead of "assertive") philosophy others will no doubt want to take issue with. Yet, I am not alone in presenting the idea of a "basic three formula", albeit occurring in other genres of interest. Here is an example which, when one takes a moment to think about, clearly states the obvious about all combative Martial Arts Forms:

3 Best Martial Arts Styles

However, such a research (or "study") exercise also requires making a serious note of the absence of any "three" type of reference; such as when we note that Astronomers often speak of a "Binary" star system and not a trinary star system... nor in this case, any other numerically assignable view (such as "quaternary" star systems, or quintenary star systems, etc...). While there are multiple exceptions to the presence of a "three", these exceptions also have their exceptions. (In other words, you may prefer another number reference such as 2, or 4, or 5, or 6, or 7... etc.), but these too are not ubiquitous.

Yet, if we make a graph of which number apparently occurs more frequently in human ideas and activities, placed in a hierarchical structure of importance (such that being on the 3rd planet is more important than a person who frequently buys two items every time they go shopping, or likes the number seven because they were born on the 7th day of the 7th month in a year ending with the number 7.) No less, surely the triplet code in RNA and DNA has greater importance than someone who owns 2 dogs, or has 4 homes, or someone living on 17th avenue. In other words, while we may list multiple examples of a given number pattern, we must make an effort to decide which has more value and ranked accordingly within a set, as well as between different numbers.

If you make a linear chart of numbers from zero (0) to ten (10) or the typical grade school chart of one (1) to a hundred (100) and below them list examples of events, ideas, etc., which reference a quantity, you may find as I have that not only are certain numbers used more frequently just as are certain letters in the alphabet. (The frequency of the letters of the alphabet in English). In reality, the chart may contain numbers whose recurring presence is absent or almost absent, as well as reflect a chart which exhibits gaps from one number to the next such that you may encounter a frequency of recurrence for numbers one (1) through ten (10) but no or few numbers between ten (10) and one-thousand (1,000). Condensing a chart to include only those numbers with a given frequency of recurrence may well make your chart exhibit large gaps... and an eventual recognition that you are being confronted with a very small representation of frequent numbers, despite the infinity of numbers at our disposal.

Number frequency chart

Again... there appears to be an overall limitation as to the quantity of numbers being used, despite having a presumed infinity of numbers at our disposal. The limited quantity of recurring numbers (seen-as-a-pattern) being used is much like the presence of an unacknowledged number alphabet. Whereas we have 26 letters in the English alphabet, the usage of number patterns can also be viewed as a type of limited alphabet... so to speak. If you make a written or memorized list of a given number (used as a pattern) and thus come to a point that you think your chosen number is "more important" or "more common" or "more dominant" than any other number, this may be only because you have not kept an honest list of recurring patterns, or the material being surveyed is limited, or you have a obsessive-compulsive interest in a given pattern which causes you to overlook the presence of one or more other patterns of the same (number pattern) nature...

...And it matters not if you intentionally look for a given number's occurrence to substantiate a view that such a number occurs most frequently; it may be simply because you have not encountered someone who has taken the time to research the phenomena of using numbers as points of reference... or at least expression. While there are those who make or have made a list (mental and/or written) of a recurring pattern, what I encounter is an exhaustion of effort on their part. Most people I have encountered have a handful of examples, while others may have dozens that they may or may not have copied from other lists, such as those interested in patterns-of-two who have relied on yin and yang examples organized by others. Yet even these are an expressed limitation... such that most people will list a few and then come to call the suspected presence of other examples as a "whole bunch" or use some other reference similar to a colloquial concept such as "Many" or "lots of", etc...

As an aside note with respect to the "E" letter. Recall if you will (at least it was in my childhood), that very often we find a child's name with an "E" ending sound such as Andy, Billy, Chrissy, Donny, Frankie, Gary, Harvey, Ivy, etc... Even when someone's parent insisted that their son or daughter have a more formal name (typically without an "E" ending sound), the kids (at least in my neighborhood), would always change it. There are of course exceptions such as the names Alice, Donna, Lisa, etc., but more often then not everyone had an "E" sound at the end of their name which others would use... that is until later ages when some sort of abbreviation or applied moniker would be permitted to deviate from this.

Note also that the "3" has an "E" sound, whereas a grouping of the English letters by a sound-alike method might be of interest to some:

  • A sound: A, J, K
  • B sound: B, C, D, E, G, P, T, V, Z
  • H sound: H
  • I sound: I, Y
  • L sound: L
  • M sound: M, N
  • O sound: O
  • Q sound: Q, U
  • R sound: R
  • S sound: S
  • W sound: W
  • X sound: X
Place value system

Let us not fail to include the ending abbreviations for numbers used in the English language. Note that we see a "set-of-three" rule distinction similarly found in the place value system of notation. In this case, the first three numbers can be singularly identified, whereas following numbers (in this example) can be grouped into a representational value of three as well:

  • 1-"st" (1 example)
  • 2-"nd" (1 example)
  • 3-"rd" (1 example)
  • 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th (9 examples)
  • 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 = "eenth" ending (7 examples)
  • 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 = "ith" ending (8 examples)

If we focus on the first set-of-three numbers in the convention system of notation (ones-tens-hundreds) and give attention to the use of a comma... what we have is a three-to-one ratio or four numbers. I bring this up because different accounts of observations in different subject areas reveal the usage of a "four" comment by researchers instead of distinguishing a like-minded mathematical means of referencing material. In other words, while a distinction between three and a one is possible, there is an absence on the part of researchers to think of their material(s) in a mathematically based notational frame of mind... even though they may very well argue for the need to think mathematically about their subject material. They are guilty of not doing so. Whereas they will think mathematically when numbers are being used, they fail to do the same when words are being used, even though they may well be aware of the existence of word-styled math problems introduced to them in childhood. They don't stop to think that Nature may well be using a word-illustrated type of mathematical problem in their given research interest. Whereas the interpretation of a Natural occurrence is being made by them, they resort to using word-labels which are not subsequently interpreted by them as a possible word problem characteristic of a simplified exhibition. For example, whereas the structure of proteins can be differentiated, time and again researchers resort to using a primary- secondary- tertiary- quaternary labeling system generally referenced as being a "four" compilation, instead of alternatively being described in a three-to-one ratio mathematical sense which likewise has applicability in other research areas and assists in a broader appreciation of cognitive activity and capacity.

Examining different texts to search for one or more enumerated patterns involves not only recording the presence of an actual numerical value, but those numerical values which show up as words, or even in the writing structure of a given author(s). For example, many of us overlook the usage of holding a pen or pencil with 3 fingers. We also take for granted the usage of 3 standard sentence-ending punctuations labeled "period, question mark and exclamation point". Nor might we consciously count the presence of three important characters, or events, or results, or time period in which a given trial or experiment takes place. And if we look to our physiology, we may well overlook the 3 parts of the eye: Iris- Cornea- Pupil, or that the ear structure has multiple "threes" which can be seen on this page: Language Threes pg. 1

In offering an idea stated as a "Standard Cognitive Model" I have run into adversarial comments generally describing alternative patterns (enumerated and otherwise) which some consider to be more proliferate than a "three" organizational platform (such as patterns-of-two generally described as dualities, complimentarities, opposites, pairing, dichotomy, binary, binomial, etc...). One might as well use the word "statistical" instead of "standard", where the value of "three" comes up more recurringly in the materials to which I have surveyed. Your interests may provide you with a different list of subjects from which an enumerated (or other) pattern is derived and thereby perceived as being dominant.

If we take for example the number 7 or number 2 and say that it is every single person's favorite number, this does not automatically relegate it to being the position of greatest importance and role in our lives. Clearly, the "3" value of the Earth's position in space, particles in physic's and the triplet code in DNA/RNA have far more value. And though one might make the case for the two-pattered night/day sequencing, anus/mouth, oxygen/redox (reduced oxygen), double stranded DNA, etc., as having a high value, we must ask why no single value exists everywhere in everything, unless we are dealing with variations of change involving multiple forms of "compilation" and/or sequentiality such as a 1- 2- 3 maturational development sequence, the Fibonacci series, the 1-2-3 + 1 or 2 (4 and 5) as seen in handedness of multiple life forms, the octet model in chemistry, use of 10 as a mathematical base, etc...

Although I am inclined to both group (lump together) and separate (segregate) examples under such labels as:

  • sacred numbers
  • favorite numbers
  • mystical numbers
  • magical numbers
  • cultural numbers
  • statistical numbers
  • etc...

It is probably best understood that I am taking examples from fairytales, myths, legends, (different forms of literature), as wells as references others have made about a given religion, sport, or science (Biology, Physics, Anthropology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Engineering, Architecture, etc...), arts & crafts, music, etc...

The fact remains that those of us who do come to catalogue recurrences of numbers (in writing and/or on a memorized note-pad), there are far too many of us failing to step back and observe a rather stark summation to be culled from our list(s). This summation is that only a few numbers are being used over and over again for many multiple observations in different subjects, as if the human brain is being subjected to an enforced conservation.

Here are some expressed limitations you may well know, but do not interpret them as conservations:

  • Periodic table of elements: at present the count is 118. (How Many Elements Are There?)
  • Human limitations (conservations): Humans at maximum limits for height, lifespan and physical performance, study suggests
  • Life span limitations for all life forms, planetary systems, galaxies?
  • Limitations of music, mathematics, imagination, space exploration, etc.?
  • Limitations imposed by a recurring "three" structure in particle physics?
  • Limitation of Universe expansion? Of time?... of planets?
  • Limitation of Infinity? (Our concept of "forever" may be an expressed conservation of mental activity.)
  • Limitation of single numbers (0 through 9... additional numbers are combinations).
  • Limitation of alphabet symbols.
  • limitations of hearing, seeing, feeling, thinking, smelling, touch (Sensory limitations).
  • Limitations of computer design?
  • Human concept of a creator (a god) is a suggested model of imposed restrictions (differing by culture and time period)... and opposing such restrictions only presents us with a different (opposite) set of imposed conservations.
  • etc...

Whereas we might say that the basic information of particle physics is not subject to an evolutionary standard other than a change in our ideas about the basic parts which appear to be unchanging, the triplet code in RNA and DNA may also have to be looked at as a conserved stature. Hence, as an imagined equation, we are looking at a conservation variable and a variable of mutability within individualized constraints, or there might otherwise be multiple types of life forms with cognitive activity equal to or greater than that endowed by humans. Apparently, evolution does not permit multiple human-like species to occupy the same environment... but does permit the development of micro-climates for different forms of mental, physical, emotional) endowment which we call different businesses, religions, sports, politics, military, education departments, etc..., just as we see different life forms carving out some environmental niche and sometimes creating overlapping circumstances which can be beneficial or harmful, just as one sees in the three basic categories of symbiosis (though some include two more... predation and competition) and three basic forms of eating types: Herbivores, Omnivores, Carnivores (Guide to Herbivores, Omnivores, and Carnivores) and three major forms of eating disorders: Anorexia nervosa, Bulimia nervosa, and Binge eating... (The Three Major Kinds of Eating Disorders).

Three basic forms of relationships

While one might think that life presents us with an unlimited variety, they are overlooking the underlying conservatism.

An example of this conservation, I have wondered why DNA and RNA exhibit a triplet code and not some other enumerated value, since it would appear that either the triplet code is not subject to revision, or it must be viewed as a separate entity imposed upon basic biological materials. In other words, if DNA and RNA are as "biologically-based" as many millions of people subscribe to, then why have they not evolved to use a numerically larger code? Why no 4, 5. 6, etc., code? If the code represents a situation in which the biological materials of DNA and RNA fell into like a jello mix conforming to a given tray design, then perhaps the dominant tray had a three-form which dominated the environmental circumstances of DNA and RNA's development. It's almost as if we are looking at a composite functionality in that we have an ensemble with a 2- (double) strand, a 3- (triplet) code, and a 4- base amino acid compliment (which I frequently prefer to label as a 3-to-1 ratio). The composite may suggest different environment pressures... or even environmentally influential constants.

In an attempt to ascertain what was environmentally existing billions of years ago during the development of the triplet code, I sought out early Earth conditions based on criteria that were essentially mentioned in separate articles, but no one had put them together and suggested them as creating an environmental condition that might have been influential enough to direct DNA and RNA to use a triplet code, like a repetitious exercise routine. As I could see it, in order to understand why a triplet formula was a conserved quantity instead of being malleable and thus subject to evolutionary change, I combined three events which different viewers may want to express in different ways, but as a general statement:

  1. The Earth's rotation is slowing, suggesting that the Earth's rotation was much faster in the past.
  2. The Sun's energy is on an incremental course of depletion, coupled to alterations in the Sun's surface structure.
  3. The Moon is receding, thus altering Earth's environment by way of tidal changes.

Note: some readers may be aware of the news stories expressing the view that the Earth is experiencing an increased rotation rate. I am not particularly troubled by this since the Earth can change course (just as it does the north/south orientation) from time to time sometimes referred to as a polar flip-flop. (Flip Flop: Why Variations in Earth's Magnetic Field Aren't Causing Today's Climate Change by Alan Buis). Here's an article about the Earth speeding up: Earth’s shortest day sets new record. Let us note that in the distant past, the Earth was spinning faster and that early humans were more primitive. If the two events can be accurately correlated, than an expressed increase in primitive behaviors among humans on the Earth might in some ways be explained.

Here's a short compilation of ideas referencing the rotation rate of the Earth. One should also note the accompanying picture of the Moon displaying a triangular portrait with regards to its pathway, since we can see the same triangular configuration with the passage of the Sun, as illustrated in the forthcoming images.

Earth is suddenly spinning faster than usual, but why? by (The Daily Digest, 8/9/2022, approx. 5:00 AM MST)
  1. June 29, 2022: the shortest day since the 1960’s
    • In the 1960’s, scientists began measuring the planet’s rotation with high-precision atomic clocks. And on June 29 this year, Earth racked up an unusual record: its shortest day since then, rotating 1.59 milliseconds less than 24 hours.
  2. Three days earlier, also shorter than usual
    • July 26 neared the newly-set record, at 1.50 milliseconds shorter than usual. So, why is the Earth spinning faster? Scientists are not completely certain, but they have a few possible explanations.
  3. Climate change
    • Some experts believe the melting and refreezing of ice caps could be contributing to the irregular speed, according to the New York Post.
  4. Earth quakes
    • The 2004 earthquake that unleashed a tsunami in the Indian Ocean shifted enough rock to shorten the length of the day by nearly three microseconds.
  5. The "Chandler Wobble"
    • Also known as the Chandler variation of latitude, the “Chandler Wobble” is a natural shifting of the Earth’s axis due to the planet not being perfectly spherical, and could be linked to the spinning speeds.
  6. Strong winds and warm oceans
    • On the other hand, stronger winds in ‘El Niño’ years can slow down the planet’s spin, extending the day by a fraction of a millisecond, according to NASA. The name 'El Niño' is used to describe the warming of sea surface temperature that occurs every few years.
  7. Speed up / Slow down
    • Basically anything that moves mass towards the centre of the Earth will speed up the planet’s rotation, much as a spinning ice skater speeds up when they pull in their arms. Geological activity that pushes mass outwards from the centre will have the opposite effect and slow down the spin.
    • H.O.B. Note: (Most people move towards the Equatorial regions of Earth because they are warmer... in other words, they do not tend to migrate towards the polar regions... unless of course the Earth keeps getting warmer.)
  8. So, is the world speeding up?
    • Over the longer term, the geological timescales that compress the rise and fall of the dinosaurs into the blink of an eye, the Earth is actually spinning more slowly than it used to.
  9. 1.4 billion years ago, a day would be less than 19 hours
    • Wind the clock back 1.4 billion years and a day would pass in less than 19 hours. On average, then, Earth days are getting longer rather than shorter, by about one 74,000th of a second each year. (H.O.B. note: please refer to the idea that environmentally influenced biological life forms (such as humans), may be rotation rate specific: Rotation Rate page 1)
Triangular shape due to passage of the moon
  1. Tidal friction slows the Earth’s rotation
    • The moon is mostly to blame for the effect: the gravitational tug slightly distorts the planet, producing tidal friction that steadily slows the Earth’s rotation.
  2. Adding seconds on the clock to keep up with the planet’s spin
    • To keep clocks in line with the planet’s spin, the International Telecommunication Union, a United Nations body, has taken to adding occasional leap seconds in June or December, most recently in 2016.
  3. With Earth spinning fast lately, leap seconds won’t be needed
    • The first leap second was added in 1972. The next opportunity is in December 2022, although with Earth spinning so fast of late, it is unlikely to be needed.
  4. How does Earth’s rotational speed affects us?
    • Earth’s quickening rotation has consequences because atomic clocks, which are used in GPS satellites, don’t take into account the Earth’s changing rotation.
  5. GPS satellites would become useless
    • If Earth spins faster, then it gets to the same position a little earlier. A half-a-millisecond equates to 10-inches or 26 centimetres at the equator. In short, GPS satellites would become useless.
  6. Smartphones, computers and communication systems
    • There are also potentially confusing consequences for smartphones, computers and communications systems, which synchronize with Network Time Protocol (NTP) servers.
  7. "Negative leap second"
    • To solve all this, if the trend for shorter days carries on for long, it could lead to calls for the first "negative leap second". Instead of adding a second to clocks, civil time would skip a second to keep up with the faster-spinning planet.

Many years ago I would think that a way to describe the recurrence of a "three" (triplet code) in DNA/RNA is to view it as an after-image effect created by early conditions of biological development where the three "moments" (or phases) of the sun (the different illuminations created by what we refer to as Dawn- Noon- Dusk), developed a 3-patterned stroboscopic event due to a faster spinning Earth. (In another imaginative sense, the Earth acts like a centrifuge spinning beneath an intense light whose position causes a change in intensity throughout the day.) In effect, all life is an expressed barometer of the Sun's differing wavelengths, including those which bounce off the moon and illuminate Earth at night.

If you have ever watched for an extended period of time while being in a dark room and then turn the TV off while remaining in the same room, you will see the after-image effects of the screen. In a sense, the triplet code of DNA/RNA would thus be an after-image effect "branded" into the photo-impressionable chemistry of early biological development. Hence, a presumed existing Evolutionary standard mode of change is usurped by the effects, creating a sustained hold on particular biological materials to keep using a triplet code.

The possible 3-patterned effect of the Sun has not been an experimental staple used by chemical evolutionists. Different models of irradiation have been used to subject biologically reactive (and irradiative reactive) materials to produce simple biological products. Whereas they may subject different chemicals to a two-electrical discharge in an attempt to create what they believe to be early Earth conditions as a pre-cursor situation to developmental biology, they do not take into consideration the presence of a three-patterned strobe-light effect which may have existed Billions of years ago and was incrementally sustained up till today— and appears to have later came to influence multiple three-patterned ideas in religion such as the 3-in-1 person godhead of the Christian Trinity that was developed out of an earlier "pagan" solar worshipping period. In addition, if one watches the Sun's path in a time-elapsed way, you might see the pyramid-like triangle passage. Because we are dealing with a triplet code, we can either say it is a fluke, a coincidence or see it as an expressed representation of an active conservation taking place.

While it is true that lightning, volcanic vents, extra-terrestrial bombardments were likely present during the pristine period of RNA and DNA's development, we need to see the "three" of the triplet code as an exhibition of a possible three-patterned event which was sustained over a long period of time and appears to have created an indelible impression. At present, chemical evolutionists are treating the Triplet code as a type of after-effect and not as a pre-event effect. Similarly, the recurring conservation of numbers used by humans is a tell-tale sign we may be forced to live in an environment which has a shelf life (so to speak), and humans can not easily removed themselves from. Apparently, all we can do is follow the incremental deterioration of the Sun by way of accommodation called adaptation... but rarely see this in the many rationalizations being used in business, politics and religion.

However, let it be noted that the Sun's three "moments" (Dawn- Noon- Dusk) are on an incremental course of fusing together as the rotation rate of the Earth continues to decrease and the Sun continues to expand (as a consequence of becoming a Red Giant before becoming a White Dwarf). Hence, that which is closely tied with the Sun's behavior will follow suit. (All of life plays the part of being a solar worshipper.) Different types of fusions will occur (in all our human ideas and activities) though the labels will be varied (such as compaction, coalescence, meshing, mashing, inter-mixing, entanglement, miscegenation, coupling, adhesion, etc...).

Note: despite our present day ability to make perceptual corrections of environmental phenomena, early biological materials did not necessarily have this capability. The world for them may have been flat, like looking at a two-dimensional surface, whereby the path of the Sun was seen without making corrections in perceptions due to mathematics or some analogical referencing. What we are enabled to contemplate due to developed intellectual tools, early biological materials may not have had a parallel means of doing so. Hence, while some humans say the Sun goes "a-round" the Earth (or the Earth a-round the Sun) or that it goes "across" the Sky; time-elapsed photography exhibits a triangular path, suggesting the triangular image of pyramids, tepees, termite mounds, etc., can be explained by such a phenomena, but why don't all living creatures produce pyramidal structures... unless they portray such in the capacity by which they are endowed to do so. In the early morning hours just after streetlights go off, I can often see the after-image effect of the light, even though I did not initially stare at any light. The after-image appears like a dark silhouette of irradiating lines in a triangular-like shape. Early models of fluorescent lamps in classrooms were always flickering and caused distraction while I was in elementary school. Another such flickering episode was while riding a bus and the sun shone intermittently through the leaves as we passed trees.

Simply take a look at the compilations of numbers being used by Numerologists and you can not help but notice only a handful of numbers are being discussed. Numerologists do not list every single number available to humanity, only those which come to mind in their purview... as representing some type of repetition with respect to their individual experiences which may or may not involve the experience of others— and for one reason or another they come to acknowledge and make reference to and thus come to be a chronicler of what some may consider to be a collection of esoterica involving numbers. Out of all the infinity of numbers at our Human disposal, only a handful are cropping up as a repetition, but not everyone consciously acknowledges a given repeating occurrence. Some people may in fact repeat a given number or sequences of numbers every day and not be aware they are doing so. If not repeating a given number in speech, then their day-to-day behaviorisms display the quantity. For example, someone might use the number 3 and arrange household or shed or garage items into unacknowledged groups of three, like someone placing a small- medium- large assortment of towels in their bathroom. In several instances of have seen a 1-towel, or 2-towel, or 3-towel arrangement being used in different home settings. In other instances there may be a "Many" (stack) of towels available nearby.

It matters not if you personally do not use a "knife- fork- spoon" ensemble of eating utensils (and whose arrangement gives me the impression of representing the values of the numbers 1, 2 and three/many), but the assortment is a standard grouping even if you add different types of these basic implements, or combine them to produce a different name such as a "spork" for a spoon and fork fusion. And for those in countries who eat with their fingers (of the right hand because the left is considered to be dirty... the one used for wiping one's butt), we see that a 3-finger method is used. No less, in those cultures where two-chop sticks are used, the "two" is consistent with the influence of the "two" exhibited in the Yin/Yang philosophy of multiple dualities.
