Scale: the energy of boundaries that separates the energy of hardness from the energy of softness in both molluscs and plants, giving soft energy to active processes and hard energy to interface processes, whether with water or with air. In vertebrate animals, such as humans, hard energy is used to form a skeletal framework, against which the animal’s muscles can leverage themselves into movement in time and space. Accordingly, the creatures that use it live primarily in space. In scaled creatures, the hard energy is used to form a skeletal framework within the surrounding space, which the creature’s energy can open and close as a means of controlling time. The creatures that use it live primarily in time.
