So the tension in the winding of the model is where the variations 'should be', and where they finally belong as the story unwinds. Hmm thinking about what this means, what it implies ... the variations are theme, the types are plot. Soo...so wound up they're separated from their true place in relation to plot? Creates a good 'disjoint' feeling that needs to be resolved. And over time we 'feel' the themes becoming more surfaced in the plot, as a result of their shifting position in the dynamically unwinding structure? As the lines 'straighten' over time?
@jhull That feels like it might make sense but just a guess. this would give the feeling of joining meaning with the events of the story. It could also explain how you have that sense of 'i don't know what's going on, why these topics keep coming up' at the beginning of the story, but as the story unwinds and the variations click into their proper places, you go, oh, so THAT's why it felt like this.
In this case, notice the feeling: we are no longer content to simply have the Interpretation, Understanding is too cold, we want to Obtain it, we desire it, are hungry for it, are desperate for it, it eludes us and we cry out for it. We want to rise above our Conditioning, overcome our worst instincts, and pay attention to our senses. Shifting our relationship to the Type shifts our relationship to the variations in the quad, and to the quad as a blended whole.
I'm also noting two leftward shifts in the third and fourth acts.
