The Reconciling force is the third force of The law of three
, the first being the Affirmative force
and the second being the Receptive force
. Together these 3 forces are a primordial architecture that shapes reality.
The reconciling force (or principle) brings the Affirmative and Receptive forces into relationship with one another to create the opportunity for their opposition to be integrated. This is somewhat similar in function to Hegel
's notion of the dialectical method whereby a thesis (representing the Affirmative force) is opposed by an antithesis (representing the second receptive force) but bought into relationship and reconciled in an integrated wholeness represented by Hegel's synthesis. There is some controversy over whether Hegel used or coined these terms but the point still stands.
