IAN: The net difference between a and b is:

(a - b) + (b - a) = 0

Zero mechanics might be properly defined as
a subset of holism, as, for example, even if
the difference between all the numbers in the
matrix didn't sum to 0, each attribute of each
identity is still derived by relation from
identities external to given identity A:

0 1 2 3
____________
0 | 0 1 2 3 |
| |
1 |-1 0 1 2 |
| |
2 |-2 -1 0 1 |
| |
3 |-3 -2 -1 0 |
--------------

( The ID matrix finds all identity
attributes of the numbers along
the top as derived by the relations
of those numbers to themselves,
listed again along the left side.

All identity attributes of 3 are listed
below the 3 on the top. For example, 3
is 3 relative to 0, 3 is 2 relative to
1, and 3 is 0 relative to 3. As we can
see, 3 requires all things not-3 for 3
to have any attribute of identity; and
therefore A requires not-A for A to be
whatever it is as much as A requires A. )

Or it may follow that if any + attribute was
not paired with a -, that then we have a free
attributes, an attribute NOT derived by relation,
and therefore "zero mechanics" = "holism" by 100%.

In the matrix, each identity generates a pair
or pairs of identity attributes across the whole,
and no attribute is derived free from relation.
1 is 1 relative to 0, and all n follow that form.
