Following the logic of this argument, I arrive at the following alternative interpretation that I would like to propose strictly as a probe ala McLuhan, which is rather than property duality Deacon's model is actually property triality.
Invoking property duality or triality has an added benefit to help explain to those skeptics of emergence how a supervenient system can have properties not possessed by its components.
12 Triality, the Leech lattice, and information coding
This lowest order Feynman diagram with two fermions and one boson is a mathematical triality diagram with the fermions representing spinors and the boson representing a vector Jordan algebra entity.
Or, more problematic, not all people that work with light are aware of its triality
One can show also that octonions and the triality
connection for spinors and vectors in [R.
