|Creative||cause functioning by virtue of (indeterminate) potentiality||transcend what is given, functioning caused is without limit||different for different things, indeterminate in kind of functioning caused|
|Elemental||cause functioning by virtue of (determinate) potentiality||immanent in what is given, from which the functioning emerges||same for all things, all things are the same in their being|
|Comprehensive||cause functioning by virtue of actuality (of totality)||transcend what is given, functioning of all things transcends any given thing||same for all things, all things are differentiated parts of same whole|
|Reflexive||cause functioning by virtue of actuality (of functionality)||immanent in what is given, as the functioning itself||different for different things, determinate in kind of functioning caused|
Since the Archic Matrix can be thought of as the union of four separate fourfolds, each of the fourfolds of perspective, reality, method, principle can be considered on its own. Here is the fourfold of principles consisting of creative, elemental, comprehensive, and reflexive principles. The content of the table and the bottom figure is derived from Walter Watson’s Architectonics of Meaning.
