Meta Squares
Recessed or "meta" squares are a simple form of
recessed geometry resembling a series of
overlapping corners.

Here I depict various levels of recessed squares,
and some tentative data for metaphysical analysis.
RECESSED SQUARE 0

Sides: 8, Unity: 2

Order = 10 (8 Sides + 2 Unity)

Transcendent = 8 (6 Lines + 2
Quadrants)

Hierarchy = 15 (6 Lines + 2 Quadrants
+ 7 defined Points)

Degrees Removed = 1 (first digit of 15)
Ambition = 5 (second digit of 15)

Transformative # = 15
(6 Lines + 2 Quadrants + 7 defined
Points + 0 Extending points)

Levels = 1
Paths = 5

Transforms to Recessed Square 1 or
reverses to Square 0.


RECESSED CROSS 1

Sides: 12, Unity: 3

Order = 15 (12 Sides + 3 Unity)

Transcendent = 11 (8 Lines + 3
Quadrants)

Hierarchy = 21 (8 Lines + 3 Quadrants
+ 10 defined Points)

Degrees Removed = 2 (first digit of 21)
Ambition = 1 (second digit of 21)

Transformative # = 21
(8 Lines + 3 Quadrants + 10 defined
Points + 0 Extending points)

Levels = 2
Paths = 1

Transforms to Recessed Square 2 or
reverses to Recessed Square 0.



RECESSED SQUARE 2

Sides: 16, Unity: 4

Order = 20 (16 Sides + 4 Unity)

Transcendent = 14 (10 Lines + 4
Quadrants)

Hierarchy =  27 (10 Lines + 4
Quadrants + 13 defined Points)

Degrees Removed = 2 (first digit of 27)
Ambition = 7 (second digit of 27)

Transformative # = 27
(10 Lines + 4 Quadrants + 13 defined
Points + 0 Extending points)

Levels = 2
Paths = 7

Transforms to Recessed Square 3 or
reverses to Recessed Square 1.
