There is a curious twist on Hegel. I think of it as Tailtiu's third. Briefly put, in any dualism there is always "a third way". From the Irish, When the Tuatha confronted with the choice of war or slavery, Tailtiu pointed out a third way----lets just move over here; and make a new home. (Which btw, begins to point towards the discussion of "place" as part of Abram's "Spell of the Sensuous" being discussed elsewhere.) Tailtiu's third has certain ties back to both Euclid and Descartes, etal in that some "trio's" are more "complete", "independent" or "orthogonal" than others. An alternate to Hegel's game is identifying either (or both): (1) the other two "images" that together with the first constitute some specific domain; and (2) take the original as the domain; and then find the three (but there are always more than just a single set of three) constituent images that help to navigate within the domain.
For example, in one view, "change" becomes a domain comprised periodic change, sustained change and wild change. This view lies beneath, and least in some experiential realms, the fire, the well and the tree as inherently sanctuary.
The fire may be experienced as earth, air, water under going a wild sporadic change, never exactly under any exactly predictable growth or change while alive, but always having identifiable "birth" and "death".
The well (spring, stream) may be experienced as air earth water under going cyclic change processes, now running full and sweet; now perhaps going saline or murky, now perhaps drying up or flooding.
The tree may be experienced as air, earth, water coming together in a continual process of sustained change, from day to day; moment to moment, never exactly the same tree; but always changing into more fully "tree"; a more complete expression of an individual unique "tree".
