in case the special characters don't come out... I was thinking about your primitive of arithmetic truth (numbers, 0, +, and *, right?) and then your concept of ‘the dreams of numbers’, interviewing Lobian Machines, etc and came up with this.

One single irreducible digit ॐ (Om) which represents a self-dividing continuum of infinite perpendicular dialectics between eidetic dream states (in which dream~numbers escape their numerical identities as immersive qualitative experiences) and entopic non-dream states (in which number~dreams escape their dream nature as literal algebra-geometries). This continuum f (ॐ(Om)), runs from infinitely solipsistic/private first person subjectivity (calling that Aleph *ℵ*)to infinitely discrete/public third person mechanism (calling that Omega *Ω*), so that at *ℵ*,any given dream is experienced as 99.99…9% dream and 0.00…1% number and at *Ω*(Omega), any given machine or number is presented as 99.99…9% number and 0.00…1% dream. The halfway point between the *ℵ *(Aleph) and* Ω* (Omega) axis is the perpendicular axis f (-ॐ(Om)) which is the high and low correspondence between the literal dream and figurative number (or figurative dream and literal number depending on whether you are using the dream-facing epistemology or the number-facing epistemology). This axis runs from tight equivalence (“=” equality) to broadly elliptical potential set membership (“…” ellipsis) So it looks something like this: f(ॐ) ⊇ *{ℵ** “…**” ⊥** “=**” Ω**}* function (Om) is superset or equal to the continuum ranging from Aleph to ellipsis perpendicular/orthogonal to the inverse range from equality to Omega). To go further, it could be said that at *Ω*(Omega), ॐ (Om) expresses as * 10|O* (one, zero, line segment, circle referring to the quantitative algebraic and geometric perpendicular primitives) while at *ℵ* (Aleph), ॐ (Om) expresses as יהוה (tetragrammaton or yod, hay, vov, hay, or in perhaps more familiar metaphor, ♣♠♥♦(clubs, spades, hearts, diamonds) where: ♣ clubs (wands) =Fire, spiritual, tactile ♠ spades (swords) = Air, mental, auditory ♥ hearts (cups) =Water, emotional, visual ♦ diamonds (pentacles/coins) = Earth, physical, olfactory-gustatory Note that tactile and auditory modalities tune us into ourselves and each others sensemaking (selves and minds), while the visual and olfactory/gustatory sense modalities are about objectifying realism of the world (egos or objectified selves/self-images and bodies). It should be obvious that ♣ clubs (wands) and ♠ spades (swords) are stereotypically masculine and abstracting forces, while ♥ hearts (cups) and ♦ diamonds (pentacles/coins) are stereotypically feminine objectified fields. Sorry for the mumbo jumbo, but it is the only way to be non-reductive when approaching the qualitative side. We can’t pretend to talk about the eidetic, dream like perpendicular of number logic while using the purely empirical terms of arithmetic reduction. We need symbols that can only refer to named qualities rather than enumerated quantities.
