Paired Opposites and Third Gravitating Bodies*
A Gravitating Body is anything that tugs at your attention.
Two gravitating bodies with a high degree of divergence are known as Paired Opposites.
Employ them and you’ll get attention.
But when you add a third gravitating body – something highly divergent from both of the first two – and it fits – you are Lin-Manuel Miranda.
First Gravitating Body:
A musical about the Founding Fathers
Second Gravitating Body:
George Washington is black and most of the other “white” characters are played by minorities as well.
Third Gravitating Body:
The dialogue is delivered in rap music, with each character having their own cadence and style.
The degree of divergence is determined by how unexpected a thing is.
Its power of convergence is determined by how well it fits.
This formula is known to all the Cognoscenti of Magical Worlds.
