The "good" and "bad" of a Deteriorate, Negative, Divestive - NINE

 

 MAJORS

 

MINORS

MINORS

Each Major Trump card is equal to two Minor Suit cards.

Coins and Staves show us the
Yang : Tangible : Transient : Crystalline : Particle Nature of Things.
Roses and Swords reveal the
Yin : Intangible : Perpetual : Amorphic : Wave Nature of Things.
Coins and Roses show us the
Yang : Positive : Ameliorate : Investive path of these two sides.
Staves and Swords show us the
Yin : Negative : Deteriorate : Divestive path of these two sides.
Both Ameliorate and Deteriorate paths have
Moderate ("good") and Extreme ("bad") possibilities to consider.

It's a matrix SYSTEM! It has many layers, many levels.

This page describes the Moderate and Extreme of a deteriorate Nine (9). I leave it to you to extract the yin from the yang from each Moderate and Extreme! Then, extract the yin and yang from each Moderate and Extreme of an Ameliorate Nine (9)!

Majors: The Ghoul and The Corpse:
Minors: The Halted End and The Vacuous Infinity

Elaboration on Key Words:

Major: --------------------
-
Nadir ~ Insanity - These people are death incarnate. Don't get sucked into their black hole of confusion.

The Ghoul:
-
Nugatory ~ Necrophore ~ Annihilating - These people want to paint everything black. They are probably already wearing black clothing head to toe... with black fingernails, and black hair, and black eyes, and black lips - very "Goth." They are very negative people. They welcome death. They are more comfortable in the company of...

The Corpse:
-
Desolate ~ Cadaver ~ Rotting - These people have nothing to live for. Their head is empty, and so is their heart. They are the walking dead. They only come out at night. Because of their desolate condition, they have no identity of their own.

Minor: --------------------
-
Definitive End ~ Chaotic Infinity - These people are very confused. They try to learn, but nothing sticks. They try to explain, but no one understands them.

Stave:
- Halted ~ Demise ~ Abolishing - These people are stubborn. When they say "No" they mean it. The end. You will not move them. You will not pass through them alive.
-
Futile ~ Mortality ~ Expiring - These people understand mortality like no other. They know that life is meaningless and futile. They are just waiting for the end.

Sword:
- Vacuous ~ Doom ~ Grieving - These people have a sense of impending doom. It distresses them, and keeps them up nights crying. They are afraid of the dark.
-
Abysmal ~ Damnation ~ Brooding - These people have a negative abysmal attitude of a person with a death wish.

--------------------

Other General Observations:
These people are dangerous, morbid and hopelessly confused. They are the crazy, insane type.

Approach:
They take a nihilistic approach to things. They are often obsessed with death and their own mortality. They are in fact dead inside already.

Thinking:
Their thinking is erratic at best. They are absolutely insane. Nothing they say makes any sense at all, it's like they are handing you a knotted ball of string to untangle on your own. Nothing they say makes any sense to them either, but there's not much they can do about that.

Belief:
They are all about confusion. They do things backwards and upside down, because that's the way their mind works. They have big empty heads. They keep pouring information into it, but it is never filled. The information just bounces around like bingo balls or lottery balls, giving them perpetual headaches.

Philosophy:
They believe life is a knotted ball of string that will never be untangled by the human mind.

Character:
They are deranged, and impossible to deal with. They are problematic. They make things more difficult than they need to be.

Capacity:
They are not good with finality. They don't finish things they start. Everything they do is incomplete, and usually not able to be understood by anyone but them, to be finished.

Reaction:
If you approach them in a bad way, they will get totally confused and maybe a bit dizzy. They are often incoherent and incompetent. They are forgetful and most likely to achieve senility.

Feelings:
If outside influences are bad they feel incomplete, bereft, empty, like a big nothing. They mourn and grieve.

Esteem:
No matter what happens, they always feel dead or doomed.

Moderate Negative Nine:

Subjective Iconic Names and Titles:

Majors: The Mortician and The Vestige:
Minors: The Waning End and The Deserted Infinity

Elaboration on Key Words:

Major: --------------------
-
Destiny ~ Perplexity - These people are hard to know, because they are so complex. Their personality is as convoluted as the human brain that runs it. But they know the way, just ask them. They have intuition.

The Mortician:
-
Purgatorian ~ Mortalist ~ Eventuating - These people are somber. They know their limitations. They know they are not immortal. They are prepared for the end. They mock death.

The Vestige:
-
Eulogized ~ Mortal ~ Fading - These people are psychic spiritualists. They can communicate with the dearly departed!

Minor: --------------------
-
Definitive End ~ Chaotic Infinity - These people like puzzles, and figuring out complex problems. They like finding solutions and putting an end to something once and for all. They also like the chaos of danger, and flirting with death.

Stave:
- Waning ~ Attenuation ~ Abating - These people value a clean slate, wiping everything clear and starting over. Put an end to what there is, even if it's not complete, and start over with nothing carrying over.
-
Final ~ Closure ~ Concluding - These people appreciate closure. They like to finish things and tie up all the loose ends.

Sword:
- Deserted ~ Serenity ~ Absolving - These people mourn the end of every day. The darkness of night brings a serenity they value.
-
Subdued ~ Seclusion ~ Ruminating - These people prefer quiet, empty, secluded time alone to sort out the confusion in their head.

--------------------

Other General Observations:
These people are perplexing and enigmatic. They are the eccentric, complex type.

Approach:
They take an understated approach to things. They are often quiet and circumspect. They know how to empty their head of all thought and live in silence. They have achieved no-mind or piece of mind.

Thinking:
Their thinking is paradoxical and labyrinthal. They may seem confused, but there is method to their madness. Out of the chaos will come order.

Belief:
They are all about complexity and chaos. They have a good head for complexity. They thrive on chaos. They are chaos!

Philosophy:
They believe life is unknowable.

Character:
They are hermetic, preferring to be alone in the world.

Capacity:
They are good with limits. They know their limitations and do not attempt to violate those boundaries. They want to know what is not known. They want to understand the impossible.

Reaction:
If you approach them in a good way, they will appease you. They will give you the closure you seek.

Feelings:
If outside influences are good they feel finished. They have done all they can do and can go home now.

Esteem:
No matter what happens, they always feel serene and content. They leave behind a legacy.
