- Force or Gravity: Inexhaustible self-compressive force, the source of all forces, which acts everywhere
- Consciousness: The omniscient order of function in everything. As a result of the self-compressive nature of the absolute space, an infinitesimal volume of space begins to spin in a whirling motion, called a fundamental energy particle. The spinning action propels an outward repulsive force. The co-joining of the two forces, attractive and repulsive, is defined as Universal Magnetism. It fills the universe as a wave. It is the first phase of self-transformation of the absolute space from being to becoming.
