2.6 The role of the Historical Characteristics to each extremum, there is an inferred history. The 6 characteristics of that history define the complex emotions for that extremum. Table 2.1 page 64 Propose new operator: The Duality Operator D reverse foreground and background I.e., it exchanges positive and negative space Clearly important for unifying foreground and background. Observe effect on the four extrema. Duality Operator D M+ -> m- m= > M- M+ and m- will be called duals of each other. Similarly, m+ and M- will be called duals of each other. Now recall: the process arrows come from the curve; i.e., they are symmetry axes of the curve Therefore, they are independent of the foreground and background. The process arrows are unchanged under the actions of the Duality Operator. Now consider: Relationship between the Duality Operator and the six historical characteristics. Can easily check: In transforming any extrema into its dual, the Duality Operator preserves the first 4 characteristics, and alters the last 2. Becomes crucial for unifying emotion across positive and negative space.
