Figure 3

Schematics of the geometrical relationship between the retrovirological constant Ω and the retrovirological window ψ. This figure illustrates the variation of retrovirological constant in both its positive and negative realms (the retrovirological window ψ is geometrically supposed as the mirror image of the retrovirological constant Ω around Xy and Hs, or x axis). Classically, the boundaries possibly define the highest point of quorum sensing and signal transduction between retroviral events in and around the space between Xy and Hs. Within the same is represented: (1) retrovirological fields (which are predicted to intertwine most when the space between Xy and Hs approximates 0), (2) Variation of the transmitting tensors (Tt) and accepting scalars (As) around ψ/Ω and X y /H s. This is Wayengera's advanced graph of the physico-mathematics of retrovirology. The x-axis represents space and the y-axis time. The graph itself, though 2-D, is a one-dimensional visualization of space-time within the retrovirological field(s). The parabolic nature of Ω [(y - k)2 = 4a(x - h)], apparent in this graph, results from a sort of reversal in time when sfv ceases to break free of Xy and embarks on Hs entry. All points on and within Ω and ψ may be denoted as the path of least action (when retroviral transmissibility is most likely and predictable, i.e. when retroviral fields are intimately intertwined). Also inherent in the graph is the 'wave-particle duality' of retrovirology and biological phenomena as a whole. The areas under Ω or ψ are to be denoted probability densities or orbitals for RTI, Va, Ha, ∑Tt and ∑As.
