Imposters of ONE: UN, Q

This post is about separating the FALSE light masquerading as the truth (as pictured above – a snippet from The Truman Show) from the ACTUAL truth.

My purpose in writing this comes from a realization that many of us are being fooled by the scheme at hand. Many of us think to ourselves “I’m woke” and “I see things for what they are.” It’s important to stay humble, as I’ll explain. There is at least a two-fold reason for the modern day ‘awakening.’ First, there is a genuine awakening occurring from within and, secondly, there is a staged fraudulent one. The grotesque tyranny that is now becoming almost impossible to ignore is barely hidden. In fact, it’s actually being sold to you now, as something for you to oppose.

Oppose the national borders and its politicians. Oppose the profiteering and the large corporations. Oppose the corrupted bank-run economic system. Oppose the “outdated” energy sector and its pundits.

A world… divided.

Truly, this world has always been in oppositional patterns throughout generations passed.

…red/blue, black/white, him/her… Pro/anti… So many ways to be divided. You name it, the narrative is there to perpetuate it. And while this is obvious to many, what is perhaps less obvious is the deep yearning for unity.

The desire for unity is elegantly proclaimed in all aspects of nature. Your body is a most beautiful expression of this, with its left and right opposing sides working as one. As the sun chases the moon, the moon chases the sun, man and woman come together to create one. This all transcending, long-suffering desire of opposites to unite has always existed, even since the beginning.

As Genesis 1:27 declares: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” From one came two: equal and opposite.

Indeed, we are now at a culmination point of ultimate division and societal unrest. With such intense opposition, the craving for unity is also reaching its peak.

As there is light, there is also darkness.

As there is truth, there is also deceit.

If truth is light and darkness is deceit, how would the darkness masquerade itself? Being deceptive in nature, would it show itself as it is – dark? Or would it more likely show itself as what it isn’t – light? The answer seems obvious as the very nature of deception is to falsely claim truth (or invert it). Deceit will always claim to be true and, in its most conniving forms, will also be most alluring.
What we have in the world today is the climax of darkness. Like an eclipse coming to totality, the truth is almost completely concealed and hidden from view. In the same eclipse, we have a corona (crown, crowning). From that totality, labour pains and the crowning (corona) of new life (birth). In the midst of these labour pains, it’s important not to lose sight of this. This is the genuine spiritual awakening that is undeniable. But to take this analogy one step further, we must also realize that during an eclipse, the moon takes the place of the sun. Darkness masquerading as light, so to speak. The wise will see through the veil, but many are too polarized in opposition to see this now.

With this climax of darkness, we have upon us a false light rising. This is the false unity – a deceptive form presenting itself as the doorway to uniting all. There are many interworking parts of this false unity.

Q (Qanon, psyop) – Q, a letter, a symbol. A male/female symbol, about uniting opposites.

Analyzing the “Q” symbol/movement…

Q is the 17th letter in the alphabet. 17 is an interesting number because of its sense of completion – beginning and end. 1+7 = 8, the symbol for infinite, the analemma and the torus. 1 to 7 days of creation, from a dark void, to the fullness of life. 1, beginning, 7, completion. QAnon, as a psyop, is a form of trickery and expression of opposites uniting. On the surface, it might seem to perpetuate divisive ‘conspiracy theories’ but its objective (WWG1WGA) is directly inline with the false light system of unity.

WWG1WGA is used frequently in Q groups, which stands for “where we go one we go all.” Observe this: Remove the “Ws” and what remains? G1GA. A = 1. Thus, we have “GAGA.” Lady GAGA is “Our Lady Peace.” Note: G=7, A=1 … again, like Q, but in reverse. By the way, the three “Ws” (W = 23) removed from WWG1WGA have a numerical sum of “69” – another symbol of opposites, perhaps (yin yang, cancer)? So, what is coded in “WWG1WGA?” Remove the opposites to achieve unity (that’s my guess – a false unity). It’s really a false peace and a false unity. Removing opposites is an impossibility here. What we really want is to marry them. It’s clear the worldly doctrine is one of neutrality (gender, sex, age, ethnicity/race, etc). By no surprise, Lady Gaga has been an advocate for this doctrine and an agent of the NWO false light system. Not surprising either that she has performed at the Global Citizen “Together at Home” (in concert with the World Health Organization). Once you see her in this light (pun absolutely intended), the facade falls apart. The veil is thin. I encourage you to see it for what it is. Here she is pictured with all her peace symbolism – the tattoo, the dove and olive branch, the hand symbol, the rainbow.

UN, UN Headquarters New York. On the backdrop, an image all of about uniting of opposites. The arrangement of tables, clearly a symbol of male/female uniting of opposites.
UN table and seating arrangement consistent with this symbol. We know it as on/off, or “power.” It represents, again, male/female. The line and the circle.
The line and the circle. Drawn by a square and a compass. The compass is set to 45 degrees, the square at 90 degrees. At their intersection in this arrangement we have an interesting code unveiled. More on this later… but again, an organization a part of bringing about a false light system – a false unity. A symbol of uniting the opposites, two become one.

UN, we know as short for “United Nations,” so the idea that it’s about ‘uniting’ is superficially apparent. But, looking a little closer, the word “un” in French means “one.” This organization is, indeed, selling unity. But you don’t always get what you pay for! The UN is a part of the false light system and is part of the very beast that has created the division to begin with. But any good marketing shark will tell you: in order for people to buy what you’re selling, you need to first tell them why they need it.

Well, right now, they’re telling you why you need it, every day. They have been for generations. Just turn on the propaganda machine for a minute and see it again for yourself…

The false light, masquerading as unity. But first, you must have “immunity.”

A close up of the backdrop at UN headquarters. I’ve outlined some of the embedded geometry. This is a work in progress, but it’s fairly apparent that they’re selling a form of unity. More on this later…

The intent of this post is to encourage critical thinking, as I too am on this quest of discovery. But if I can caution you: be aware of the false light, meant to deceive and test you. The powers of the world are not about unity (marrying) of opposites, but they are about neutralizing opposites, making equal and same. When you remove either counterpart, you destroy both – there is no harmony. You can’t have man without woman and vice versa. This false light system rising from the ashes is the equalizer. The time of “ironman.” The genetic alteration and integration…

“As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay.” -Daniel 2:43

Equal and same or equal and opposite?

Equal and opposite or equal and same? What happens to the balance when you move counterparts to one side of the scale?
To walk the path ‘between’ fire and water is illustrating a manner of proceeding without polarizing yourself in opposition to either side.

“Keep your path straight,” and “turn the other cheek” – is this deeper wisdom? “Love your enemy”is the difficult path. The storm is certainly upon us, the waters uneasy. To rise above the illusion is to walk on the surface of the waters. Stay attuned to what is true, not to what opposes you, else you sink or burn. That is how we ‘pierce the center.’ This is the path to unity.

Symmetric Duality (pt.2)

Expanding on thoughts from part 1: Symmetric Duality (pt.1)

The truth is hidden in plain sight.

Torus | Taurus | Aura | Torah

The aura that is all around us, flowing through us and in everything.

The Torah (also known as the first five books of the bible | bi-bull) was spelled out with letters derived from the torus (as Stan Tenen’s work describes well, mentioned previously). Are they, perhaps, the same thing? Would not the truth be universal and free of doctrinal requisition?

Torah | Aura | Toral | Aural | Oral


relating to the ear or the sense of hearing.


by word of mouth; spoken rather than written.

It might not be hard to believe at this point that our aura, which I imagine as our own individual torus field, is very much connected to what we hear and, in turn, what we say… aural | oral – from aura.

In fact, the ripple effect of the very words we speak seems infinite. What we say and do does matter tremendously!

The torus, represented by the taurus bull (a symBULL as pointed out by SynchroMiss). Taurus bull, a symbol of a strong force. There are opposing forces – opposites on either side – and between them a center.

Center | Centaur

centaur (n.)
monster in Greek mythology, with the head, torso, and arms of a man joined to the body of a horse, late 14c., from Latin centaurus
derived from Greek kentauros.


Battle of Centaurs and “Wild Beasts” – pulled from Wikipedia.


According to Wikipedia… “The Greek word kentauros is generally regarded as being of obscure origin. The etymology from ken + tauros, ‘piercing bull‘, was a euhemerist suggestion in Palaephatus’ rationalizing text on Greek mythology, On Incredible Tales, which included mounted archers from a village called Nephele eliminating a herd of bulls that were the scourge of Ixion’s kingdom. Another possible related etymology can be “bull-slayer“.”

< Thoughts on this: The ‘piercing bull’ idea brings with it a notion of breaking free of the torus. The tale of Parzival and the holy grail seems to be about this as well. Parzival etymology breaks down to ‘pierce, breakthrough the valley.’ The valley is ” the river-land between two ranges of hills (vale etymology).” Is this also the narrow path?

According to Greek mythology, the centaur slays the bulls. The centaur pierces the bull.

Referring once again to the crossbow analogy:

CROSSBOW: Opposing forces of the crossbow work together. The center force is the ‘bull slayer’ that utilizes and overcomes the two opposing forces. The center|centaur consumes both bulls (forces), bringing them into unity.

I wonder if the hidden meaning of “Centaurus” (cen-taurus) implies the culmination at the center of a torus. As both opposing forces of the torus are ultimately governed by 0-9, as all things are encoded using these numbers (ten digits each side, 10×10, or 1 and 9 9, as in one hundred). Cent is known to mean ‘hundred,’ such as cent in French and the one cent coin (1/100 of a dollar). The term ‘percent’ is to represent a fraction of one hundred. And in line with recent revelations, cent brings us back to scent, nose, gnosis.

Cent | Scent | Nose | Knows | Gnosis


Etymology (
From Old Portuguese cen, from cento, from Latin centum…

cen – one hundred; 100

Usage notes: The indeclinable form cen means “one hundred” only…

Does it seem a little bit like cent in this theme is the unity of opposites? The centaur to the taurus? The bull-slayer? The magnitude of left multiplied (or amplified) by the magnitude of right? 10×10, or one more than 99 (9 and 9)?

Perhaps that’s a reach on my part… but it does get increasingly difficult to attribute anything to coincidence these days. This reasoning does bring us back to the importance of the straight and narrow path, which leads to life. Not to the left, not the the right but straight through the center. All of these cross symbols do seem to represent life, as best as I currently understand them:

  • Ankh appears be unity of opposites. To be specific, it is in the similitude of a female womb, with a left leg and right leg spread apart (duality) and the male phallus in the center, the narrow path leading to life.
  • Greek Cross (our plus sign) is, of course, used in our mathematical expressions to represent increase, addition…
  • Saltire (our multiplication sign) is ironically (or not) used again in our mathematical expressions to signify multiplicity. To “be fruitful and multiply” is the foundational function of life.
  • Christian Cross is a slight deviation from the Greek cross which appears to take on more the form of man, mapped out perfectly by a man on the cross, with the legs below and the left/right arm on either side. This, again, as with all cross symbols, appears to signify the unity of opposites leading to life. The path between fire and water.

Contrarywise, the ‘equal’ sign (=) consists of two parallel lines, never crossing. This is because it does not represent equal AND opposite, but ONLY equal. To be ONLY equal is, really, in my humble opinion, to be nothing at all. Everything in existence must have its opposite, as is clearly evident with any amount of honest reflection. The light must be contrast by the shadows. For example, to say you are a man is to say nothing at all, unless there exists a woman also – an opposite. The opposite must exist for either to exist.

A brief Interjection: Society today is offering us a false equality not properly balanced by opposites. This is inevitably leading to pure chaos, breakdown and destruction of life itself.

Yes, the balanced scale does represent equality of opposites, however, it is often misused as an illustration of equality today. The fundamentally flawed equality of today should be properly illustrated by having the man and woman both on one side of the scale, leaving the opposite side empty.

= + x

Interestingly, the difference between ‘+’ and ‘x’ is about 45 degrees… or 9. But that’s getting a little too abstract for even me.

If there should be life (“good”), there should also be death (“evil”). But the marrying of the two can’t be described by either, just as violet is unlike red and blue. The union is indescribable by opposing terms. Just as the crossbow uses left and right forces to hit its target, we in the same manner might transcend this physical plane. I’m not by any means implying partiality (a little bit good and a little bit bad), but a completely extraordinary state more in line with perfection if there ever was one.

A final thought on unity of opposites…

A cross is all about going across. It is our map to navigating this torus realm, the apple of the knowledge of opposites. Going across (a-cross) the gnosis (nose’s) bridge to real eyes (realize) and behold the Just One.




Symmetric Duality (pt.1)

This post expands on: Where are we? and The Binary Illusion of Choice: The Left and Right Paradigm Hiding Truth in Plain Sight

What do you think? Is it a coincidence?

A typical torus field – visualization of outer and inner surfaces

Fictitious “Van Allen Radiation Belts” around spherical earth.

Yes, there is a curve! …but it’s not the one you’re looking for. The truth is always there… waiting… hiding in plain sight. But even the truth has its opposite “lying” in plain sight.

Before we get into the torus field, I want to lay some groundwork (for my own method of thinking)…

As I’ve written before, we are ‘between fire and water.’ That is symbolic for this temporary place we now sojourn, as it is one of opposites. As I understand it, it is dual in nature. It is a symmetrical duality. We intuitively know fire and water to be opposites: symbolic opposing forces that, when combined, create steam. Steam/air symbolizes ascension and spirit – this is the straight and narrow path. Let me illustrate:

CROSSBOW: Opposing forces of the crossbow work together

I recently acquired a crossbow (yet to actually try the thing out) and as I was pondering it struck me… The opposing forces and the straight and narrow path are right there in the design of the crossbow. It can be understood that this symmetric duality is out of absolute necessity when observing how it works. The crossbow utilizes the principle of the cross (✞), leveraging an opposing force on both the left and on the right, propelling the arrow forward. Both forces must be equal and opposite. I would say this reasoning could shed new light on the meaning of the cross symbol itself. Wasn’t this the whole idea of Jesus’ life – to show the way, the truth and the life? …the symbol of the archetypal man awakening who was crucified on a cross …?

And let’s not forget that scene in “The Truman Show” where Jim Carrey (J.C. – as in Jesus Christ) makes his exit.

Final scene in “The Truman Show,” where JC presents the symbol of the cross before exiting the false reality.

It is at the end when Truman ascends the stairs and it is also at the end when his opposite (Sylvia) descends to meet him. I suspect this is symbolic of the union of opposites. Male, female and, perhaps, conscious and subconscious – or lower nature and spirit.

Even more strangely (but now seemingly less so), the calculated values of the two characters’ names (Truman and Sylvia) are so close that, in all cases, their value difference is just one. 1. When one is taken from the other (or vice versa) the result is 1.

Is the cross our universal exit symbol? Or, is it a symbol for transcendence? That is to say, a symbol for boundless, eternal? I will be sure to seriously ponder on this one… Speaking of ‘serious,’ wasn’t it Sirius that caught Truman’s attention before getting into his Ford “Taurus?”

The Torus

Just as “a whirlpool is a body of rotating water produced by opposing currents…

While there are technical definitions of what a torus is, I will refrain from regurgitating them here. The truth in regards to the torus is intuitive and can be comprehended simply as a principle. A principle by which all things in this realm seem to exist.

The torus field depicted above shows how opposing forces ultimately work together. It shows how they are, indeed, connected. But, perhaps most importantly, it shows a symmetric duality culminating at a center point, while taking on the overall shape of a sphere or donut.

Similarly, we are dualistic beings. We are wired that way, with a left and a right hemisphere. We have 2 eyes, 2 ears, 2 arms, 2 legs… The body is a perfect symmetry – each side a mirror opposite. As we walk… left, right, left, right… But within our being, we do have a center.

Words spoken are literally spells cast, as they are ‘spelled’ out from the torus itself.

As if to ‘cast’ a shadow, a simple reorientation of the torus field vortex reveals every letter of the Hebrew alphabet (source:

The cross-section of the torus reveals a vortex pattern, which is actually a 3-dimensional spiral pattern.

A reorientation of the vortex produces the letters that make up the words we speak…

Dive into this:

The torus is, literally, the apple we all bit into.

A new way of understanding the symbolism behind the famous apple from the tree of knowledge of ‘good and evil.’

The apple is a symbol of the torus.

It’s not hard to understand when looking at these forms derived from the torus why the Taurus bull was named as such. The torus/taurus, with its opposing forces…

Opposing Taurus bulls, mirror opposites.

But what is between them? Ah, of course… the sun/son. A symbol for the truth – in plain sight: not to the right, nor to the left… but straight down the middle… the narrow path.

And the high priest answered and said to him, ‘I adjure you by the living God that you tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God.’ Jesus said to him, ‘It is as you said’.

Mathew 26:63,64

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 14:6

The Binary Illusion of Choice: The Left and Right Paradigm Hiding Truth in Plain Sight

To expand on a previous post

I’d like to take a moment to appreciate this scene from “The Matrix” where Neo (anagram for ‘One’ – as in ‘Anointed One’) is faced with two choices offered to him by Morpheus (Greek for “God of sleep and dreams,” according to Wikipedia). Many have speculated on the deeper meaning of this scene and now I’d like to offer my take on it for you to mull over. Here’s a snippet from that scene for context:

Morpheus: The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind. Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself. This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. [opens hand, unveiling blue pill] You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. [opens hand, unveiling red pill] You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. [Speaks before Neo takes the Red Pill] Remember: all I’m offering is the truth. Nothing more.
[Neo takes the red pill after a few moments of thought, and washes it down with a mouthful of water from the glass next to him]
Morpheus: Follow me.

It strikes me as an obvious portrayal of our dream-state reality where, as I’ve alluded to previously, we’re constantly offered two choices (opposing forces): you’re either left or right, pro this or anti that, blue or red. If you follow the Matrix trilogy, you’ll know there is question as to whether or not Neo ever does actually exit the simulation at all, or if he has been fooled by the very system he wishes to be free from… Perpetually trapped in this left/right simulation paradigm (sleep state), spiraling only downward into a deeper sleep – just as water spirals in a whirlpool.

“A whirlpool is a body of rotating water produced by opposing currents…

Wikipedia – Whirlpool

Note that regardless of which pill he chooses, red or blue, he would still be taking it with a glass of water. Water, symbolic of this physical/material, surface-level realm (but let’s explore that more in another post).

As an aside, the spiral pattern can be represented and denoted by the number “6,” the number of man (in Genesis, man was created on the 6th day). This number is also connected to the ‘beast’ system, which I would confidently say the ‘matrix’ simulation is an allegory for. The beast system is denoted by the number 6 threefold:

“Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

Revelation 13:18

Morpheus claims to offer ‘knowledge’ and ‘knowing’ of the truth when he says “all I’m offering is the truth.” We can deduce that this statement in and of itself on surface level is not completely true as he is clearly offering both red and blue pills. Morpheus proceeds to offer a left and right ‘dream-state’ reality. Perhaps a case can be made that, when observing the image below, the left/right paradigm is symbolized by the two reflections in his ‘sunglasses’ (somethin’ about those shades). There are two realities, but both a reflection (mirror or opposite) of same. Notice, though, what is between them? There, in front of us hidden in plain sight? Between the two illusions is the nose – a pun for “knows.”

Two illusions, left and right, symbolized by the reflections in Morpheus’ sunglasses.

The path to knowledge (to know, nose/knows/gnosis) and ascending to a higher plane is not to the left nor to the right, but through the center. Even the nose itself has a bridge, as if to be symbolic of the ‘narrow path’ in the context of this theme.

The Truman Show: Straight and narrow bridge

Narrow path… Directly between the eyebrows. And who would’ve expected that “brow” has another less popular definition relating to a ‘narrow passageway?’ Brow is another word for gangplank – “a flat plank or small, movable, bridgelike structure for use by persons boarding or leaving a ship at a pier.” Brow can also imply the ‘summit of a hill or pass.’

As I like to defer to on this blog, a quote from the hidden book of 2 Esdras:

“…There is a city built and set on a plain, and it is full of all good things; but the entrance to it is narrow and set in a precipitous place, so that there is fire on the right hand and deep water on the left. There is only one path lying between them, that is, between the fire and the water, so that only one person can walk on the path.”

2 Esdras 7:6-8 (Apocrypha/hidden scripture)

This is the “straight and narrow path.” Notice the irony – the city is “set on a plain,” as if to infer the truth is hidden in ‘plain’ sight. It’s also clear that no one can lead you down that path. That is to say, there’s no one you can follow to walk it. The straight and narrow path is illustrated symbolically throughout various texts. Here are a few popular examples:

“Do not turn to the right or the left; Remove your foot from evil.”

Proverbs 4:27 (note: pointing out the obvious – ‘evil’ is ‘live’ backwards)

“The voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord; Make His paths straight.’ ”

Mark 1:3

Even Jesus/Yeshua (whatever translation you ascribe to) is quoted as saying:

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

Mathew 7:13-14

This will definitely require more deep thought to truly understand what is being communicated here. I can say, though, that in a practical sense, when we choose to place our complete trust and faith in man, be it a religious leader, a teacher, a scientist, a doctor of medicine, a politician – no matter what form – we are choosing to surrender our own sovereignty in exchange for ignorance and its perpetual delusions.

The Path Between Fire and Water

By this reasoning we can be reminded to test everything, question the status quo, look deeper, beyond the surface level. What we ‘do’ matters tremendously. Intuition should never be ignored as we live with the purpose of refinement in mind because this life is, indeed, a time of refinement for our souls:

49 He answered me and said, “Listen to me, Ezra, and I will instruct you, and will admonish you yet again. 50 For this reason the Most High has made not one world but two. 51 For whereas you have said that the righteous are not many but few, while the ungodly abound, hear the explanation for this.

52 “If you have just a few precious stones, will you add to them lead and clay?”

53 I said, “Lord, how could that be?”

54 And he said to me, “Not only that, but ask the earth and she will tell you; defer to her, and she will declare it to you. 55 Say to her, ‘You produce gold and silver and brass, and also iron and lead and clay; 56 but silver is more abundant than gold, and brass than silver, and iron than brass, and lead than iron, and clay than lead.’ 57 Judge therefore which things are precious and desirable, those that are abundant or those that are rare?”

58 I said, “O sovereign Lord, what is plentiful is of less worth, for what is more rare is more precious.”

59 He answered me and said, “Weigh within yourself what you have thought, for he who has what is hard to get rejoices more than he who has what is plentiful.

What are the stars?

Capella and Sirius observations from earlier this year…

After searching online for genuine imagery of the stars, it is now blatantly clear to me that their true nature is concealed on purpose (by no surprise). I’ve taken an interest in capturing video of these celestial lights and now have some content I’d like to share with other curious observers. For the curious observer, perhaps these short clips will be an encouragement and inspiration to look deeper into what the stars truly are.

All Things Come About by Strife

“Between Fire and Water,” symbolically speaking, is precisely where I think we are (or, for the time being, strive to be) – between both fire and water. Not as a final destination but as a necessary path to follow.

“…There is a city built and set on a plain, and it is full of all good things; but the entrance to it is narrow and set in a precipitous place, so that there is fire on the right hand and deep water on the left. There is only one path lying between them, that is, between the fire and the water, so that only one person can walk on the path.”

2 Esdras 7:6-8

“…between the fire and the water” is symbolic for this narrow path, with opposing forces on either side, that each of us must pass through to be tempered. With an affinity for the truth and being careful not to deviate to the left or to the right, we are spiritually refined through trials. So, adversity is inevitable and we should not fear it. To quote Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher of old, “what opposes unites, and the finest attunement stems from things bearing in opposite directions, and all things come about by strife.” This world’s grand illusion continually offers a left/right paradigm to perpetuate itself, leading many off the narrow path (and few find it) and refining those who persevere between.

The truth is neither left nor right, but that which is between them: The straight path.

I’ve expanded more on the concept of a left/right paradigm here.
