I was never at peace with law-of-excluded-middle. I know it’s a pragmatic thing, useful to imagine segmentation as you can build upon it using theory and construct with it some amazing physical systems. But to me, any system we can access is an open system in some form. Visual, measurable, something. There has to be an output that goes to our inputs. Permeable. A doorway. Some zone where there is mixing, perhaps confusion.

A doorway.

Some zone where there is mixing, perhaps confusion.

But, seeing as how this _may_ be an artifact of how we process segmented spaces, it makes sense that we would consider the rooms entirely separate, as it’s uncommon to consider doorways at all.
