Independent variable: The thing that changes first.
Dependent variable: The effect it has on something else, which is dependent up on it.
The "x" axis: The independent axis in any graphical function.
The "y' axis; The dependent axis in the function, showing the effect of changes in the independent variable.
The asymptote; That value on the "x" (independent variable axis) which the function CANNOT mathematically exceed.
WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT?
We humans are in an unprecedented predicament. The pressures are immense, and we need to find a new way forward if we want to survive. The asymptote is a mathematical representation of the "wall" we are bumping up against. All the symptoms of this barrier are pointing to the need for a radical new way of thinking. We need new eyes. If individuals, and society, collectively, can SHIFT their mode of thinking, then infinite new opportunities may arise.
LoveShift, and the "Axes Shift" is a way to imagine how this could occur. The new functionality does NOT replace, or destroy the old: Rather, it fulfills the previous success with new possibilities for all life.
And, as is now being understood, there will be another "SHIFT" after the LoveShift. This is just one in an ongoing, perhaps infinite, number of changes in the design of the Cosmos.
