In the CTMU, telesis is the universal substance from which reality is refined. Telesis is the raw material of cosmogony, the ultimate ancestral medium from which the universe originates.
Telesis can be bound or unbound. Unbound telesis (UBT) consists of pure ontological potential, characterized by nil constraint, zero information, and total freedom. When bound, telesis becomes infocognition, the structured, dual-aspect substance of which reality consists. To be clear:
CTMU monism says that the universe consists of one “dual-aspect” substance, infocognition, created by internal feedback within an even more basic (one-aspect) substance called telesis.
Thus, whereas UBT consists of infocognitive potential, a specific reality (SCSPL) consists of infocognition. Once bound in a primitive infocognitive form that drives emergence (the MU form), telesis continues to be refined into new infocognitive configurations as reality evolves.
