To begin with , think of a tree , what makes it grow , and what’s the meaning of it’s flesh . 
Nature is mirror image of cosmos , chaos within harmony is the law , and the law is to set in scales , lines and tempo direction is organic and can be understood as the truth . 

To see complete view as it is , the unnatural modern meanings of distance and perspective must be added with four alterations which are power , truth, tempo and motion to feel the power you must have full sense of instinct .
To have direction your flesh must be complete.

To be in or set the tempo , you must understand and feel the law .
Motion is living time and shall be used as a measurement in two ways , horizontal and vertical .

For and behalf of Tiermes .
