Take a value and find out that it's true, and theoretically you've
found what is known as a 'gestalt' or deep psychological truism.
For example, if authentic life is happy, and happiness is always
symbolized by the color 'yellow', then we can say 'life is yellow'
is a gestalt. Even if it isn't 100% true, it is a truism because its
supposed to be true.
Similarly, we can say 'systems live in trees' if all systems come
from linear structures which are called trees.
