The Greeks were clever. The Pythagorean “number line” idea of knowledge: the monad (1), dyad (2), triad (3) — is a sly way of grasping at complexity.
Humans think/reason by breaking complexity indefinitely into twos/dyads/dichotomies/dualisms.
The bar for making useful/smart sounding observations is kinda low. Rule: Take a complex thing, divide it into two parts, then as a bonus — express those divisions as a monad (everything is love/or a force), and… repeat. Triads/Trialisms/Trinity and higher are undefined for obvious reasons.
Not a philosopher .
