## Unnamed Structures 1: Axioms

2023-01-12 | tags : structure | axiomaticsThere exists a system made of units (.) and bonds (-). Units do not exist in isolation, they can only exist in a bond with one or more units.

Although a graphical representation of these structures can be given, the structures themselves are dimensionless.

- I. Units cannot occupy the same space
- II. Only one bond is possible between any two units
- III. A unit can have an unlimited number of bonds
- IV. Units exist only if linked by a bond
- V. Bonds exist only if linked to two units

### Minimal element

From [II] and [IV] we derive that the minimal element possible is composed of two units linked by a single bond.

### Maximal element

The maximal element has an infinite number of units and an infinite number of bonds. what is known from [III] is that the infinite element is a unit - i.e. there cannot be a bond without a unit. Also we know that there are as twice as many bonds in any element.
