The Tree hierarchy has an inherent division between KL5 and KL4 called the internal duality. The upper three levels, KL7-KL5, function as a context for the lower four levels, KL4-KL1, which are the content. In addition, there is a correspondence in that:
■ KL1 is similar to KL5
■ KL2 is similar to KL6
■ KL3 is similar to KL7
KL4, the highest level of content, serves as a mediator. The KL4B Centre is directly linked to all other Centres except KL1B.
The Tree hasas its central core. It is assumed to deal with difficult situations where is hard to sustain. The focus in then relates to whether or not effort can and should be sustained so that endeavours can generate a new reality.
From this perspective,seems to mediate between:
