I have to confess to not having the slightest inkling what you're
saying here. I did briefly look at Stone duality on Wikipedia, but it
didn't help much. I assume that you're interested in some duality between
an algebra (perhaps one of Bruno's hypostases, if they're an algebra)
and a topological space that could stand in for physical reality, but
beyond that I'm totally lost :).
