Trinitarian ontology

Put yourself on the Porphyrian tree. How do you get to existence? On the one hand, you have to step off the tree from above, and into what is more general than all things and communicable to all of them. On the other hand you have to step off the tree from below and get to the concrete particular, to the individual of such-and-such a nature. Being thus overcomes the opposition between the unity of nature and the diversity of supposits. And so the paradigm of existence has both absolute unity and a diversity of supposits.
