Triessentialism is an Ontology

I just found out that what I've been doing with Triessentialism is a branch of philosophy called ontology. Ontology describes "what exists" within any specific context/reality/universe.

While ontologies have been constructed before, Triessentialism has several notable aspects:
  1. It is simple.
  2. It is iterative or recursive; one might even say fractal.
  3. It is complete.

There are three categories, The Physical, The Logical, and The Emotional. I think of them as three separate, unique realms, in which things of each sort exist only in their own realm. However, the human mind is a nexus where all three meet and interact.

There are three types of logic, roughly corresponding to "What," "How," and "Why." In more forlam language, I call them "Definitions," "Interactions," and "Derivations." They are roughly analogous to the main categories.

There are also three types each of physical and emotional things. As before, they are roughly analogous.

Simple to grasp, a lifetime to master more than the basics.
