The problems of the triad; the dualities of relativities, have been addressed in philosophy, psychology and religion the solution seen as a middle way in choosing; negotiating a path between opposites, maintaining the tension between them without attachment or aversion.

How ideas which are externalized and no longer timely should be dealt with is a different problem. If the mind is open to relativities and plays a neutral role in their assessment in sync with time there is a possibility for renewal.

The problem is that the mind wants absolutes; it wants to synthesize the duality, suppress its opposite or erase both dualities in nihilism. There are no absolutes in a triad which is relative only to a time, a place and a circumstance. That is why good ideas and projects go wrong in time and their opposite is waiting in the wings.

In nature the neutral force coalesce with the strong and weak force to make a world without the autonomy of either force being lost. It is difficult for the mind to do likewise.
