So far, we have clarified and formulated the following:
I can now consider how to the transform so as to understand .
Table of Typology Essences (TET) as explained in the next topic and those that follow.and are both about obligation. for persons can be converted into for societies by looking at the in a new holistic way. This involves working out a specially designed

The inquiry task will involve clarifying how each:
This is a brief abstract summary to explain why the preliminary task is to develop a TET.
When the progress is plotted on a TET (Typology Essences Table), the result is a Spiral trajectory showing discontinuous Stages of development. There are two Cycles in any Spiral: Stage-1 is entered twice and the final (third) re-entry completes the maturation process.
