Tetragasms

 

 

First, Meta-Fours.

 

This is a term I coined to designate the significant and sometimes amusing ways in which the archetypal number four seems to turn up all over the place. For myriad examples of this, see my essay “Meta-Fours” in the HyC Adventures section on this site.

 

I’ll coin another word: Tetralogian.

 

Tetralogian plays on the word “theologian,” but whereas the theologian has as his field of expertise the nature of God, and things divine, the tetralogian looks into fourfold things, and the nature of Quad.

 

What about Tetragasms?

 

Tetragasms are what the Tetralogian enjoys during fourfold epiphanies.

 

Need I add that this is a fourfold frisson?
