The linear time-dimension as the sole object of perception, and as the sole source of teleology and of causality

proposition : that only time is perceptible (i.e., that the perceived is one’s own self in one’s future & past aspects) [explanation : to allow more that one observor would be tantamount to allowing more that one time-strand – any non-solipsistic system of metaphysics must at the outset bear the burden of proving the separability and distinctness of time-strands; which if done surely must moreover render all independent observors’ observations mutually incompatible / irreconcileable]; and

that only time can be purposive and/or causal (i.e., that one’s purpose or cause can only be one’s own self in one’s own future or past)

proposition : that universal consciousness is unitary (i.e., that multiplicity of consciousnesses is illusory, unreal) – that all interaction is self-interaction (reflexive)

definition : that [all] perception is contact with one’s own self in one’s future or past, as restricted to such contact (direct or indirect) as is provided by the (unchangeable, though tuneable [like unto the tuning-coil in a receiver-set] by motion of the contact-point along the time-line) coil of the linear time-dimension

less complete definition : that gendre (sexual) as perceived is dependent upon relative placement (on the same or opposite side) of the Mo:bius-strip along the circuit whereof the time-line is coiled

more nearly complete redefinition : that the absolute (as distinguishable from merely relative) gendre (sexual) of the perceived (person "other than one’s self" as position in a coil adjacent to one own coil-position on the time-line) is determinable by absolute locality (interiority or exteriority) in the quasi-knotted Klein-bottle around the circuit whereof the time-line is coiled

[explanation : the Mo:bius-strip would have no determinate interior/exterior distinguishability, rendering analogy with gendre not determinate in the absolute; so that a Klein-bottle is needed to make for a definite absolute in gendre.

additional explanation : quasi-knotting of the Klein-bottle, especially by its hollow extension passing back into it through its mouth, would hinder its being evertible (able to be turned inside-out) and thus would enable to praeserve the distinguishability of absolute gendre.]

action at right angles : the Klein-bottle analogy would make available for mortals a double [at most] existence, repraesentable each as horizontal helices traced on the interior and exterior (for males and females respectively); and also for immortals a single existence (reversible gendre), traceable as a vertical helix inscribed on the Klein-bottle (such that every loop must pass through the overhead returning extension of the bottle). {such right-angle effect would be analogous to the relation between an electrical coil and its magnetic field.}

eversions in mutually rectilinear windings on Klein-bottle : the horizontal helix traced on surface of a Klein-bottle will evert (exchange between the interior and exterior [repraesentative of 2 series of male and female lives respectively of the single consciousness]) only once; whereas

the vertical helix traced on surface of the Klein-bottle will evert (exchange between the interior and exterior [repraesentative of 2 series of male and female lives respectively of the single consciousness]) at each looping of the helix-coil {model-analogue : because of the great difficulty among intelligent mortals of even understanding the mode of thinking of the opposite gendre, to humans would more fittingly be ascribed the horizontally coiled helix; whereas

to the by-far-more-versatile intelligent immortals could be more fittingly ascribed the vertically coiled helix} {there are Siberian & South American tropical forest Indian ascription of a change of gendre, with each life, to humans; but their shamans actually may be witnessing and describing guardian-spirits (who would be immortal deities, not mortals) of the dead persons rather than the dead persons [souls] themselves}

deduction : that interactions "with others" may involve conditionally irreducible karman (effects on one’s self which may not be deleted without appropriate compensations to the "others" involved; that mere "repentance" without making amends would not generally suffice) – this would follow from the perceived "others" being one’s own future and past which have already been altered by one’s actions. [limitation : a balanced effect, aequally applied to one’s future and to one’s past, could result in an essentially self-cancelled karman, but with a residuum of quality – whereof the quality may be characterizable by understanding or lack thereof.] {perhaps a more definite calculation of karmic effects could be achieved by a analogy of a ethic field in the time-coil with the magnetic-field in an electric coil – would a divine world be required as the ethic analogue for a magnet moving within the coil of a generator?}
