The Causal Inequality. Ontologically homogeneous domains do not cause ontologically homogeneous domains.

Ontologically Heterogeneous Domains. May cause and be caused by ontologically homogeneous domains.

Vertical Ontologically Heterogeneous Domains. Cause ontologically homogeneous domains.

Horizontal Ontologically Heterogeneous Domains. Do not cause ontologically homogeneous domains.

The Intention Method, based on the continental psychologist Franz Ruppert’s empirical research and theory.

Non-mathematical physical dimensions (implicit in Gamper 2021).

Ω and D – the object as such and its dimensionality.
