ELIDIAN LEAPS

An Elidian leap invlves moving to a new, equal, ideal category of
thought. The many angles at which the concept must be
approached make it challenging. In many cases, the leap requires
a new vocabulary, such as with eteration = contingent iteration.
One must not only think outside the box, but also understand
exactly what definition would qualify to organize the new concept.

'H' Type. This is a standard parallel category type, analogous to
modular extension. For example, 'World 2'.

'N' Type. In this case the second category is further-off. Some
additional term such as 'archaic' or 'modern' has been applied to
it to fit it to its new role. It is no longer organized in relation to the
original concept except through multiple types of variation. This
type is useful for specific applications. For example, 'Metaphor'.

'S' Type. In this case the concept differs only by lemma
(quantity), and therefore the collective categories may be seen as
singular, folded, and overlapping. A single variable defines the
modular extension, and the form or orientation of the category
rather than its position may define its role.  For example,
'Evolution'.
