Rein, when you say that the arch is of the type of ideas, that's exactly what I meant when making reference to Bateson's notion of relations as pertaining to the "mental".

In this bi-directional back and forth I hear Rein exploring and expressing that it is preferable to imagine all existents as composites being  the basic ontology and a response exploring and expressing *repeatable* functions that *re-ascend* to the concrete as a particular kind of bi-directional movement.

The notion of *repeatable* functions as a particular logic of abstractions that next re-ascend to the  concrete which is the basic material.

And where is *meaning* is this back and forth which seems to be central for human *nature*?
