Triadic philosophy sees reality as all pervasive and all embracing. It can be no other. If all thinking is in signs and all that is can become a sign, can there be anything that is not a sign? Triadic philosophy sees the spectrum as the best means of evaluating (valuing) the elements of reality that we perceive and consider. A spectrum is the projection of a hierarchy that denotes values. The heights are reserved for terms we associate with good, with the positive, with life. The depths for terms that denote harm, evil, death. The spectrum is a utility within the mind that enables and facilitates discrimination. The terms which we value at the high end could be called ontological, meaning that they are universal. Why so? Because they enhance the being, the fulfillment, the realization of every person on earth. Now to be a realist and not a nominalist is to believe that these terms are not merely what we put up there on a spectrum of our own making, but that they represent realities that exist regardless of whether we perceive them or not. It is to such terms that I would attach the description ontological. And yes I would hazard the guess that they are indeed part of the being to which history aspires.
