Enumerated Similarity States - 3: Triessivity

Daerthropes can contain a number of base activant settings. Some of these have an Enumerated Similarity State Index Value (ESSIV) that determines how one daerthrope may be compared against another. The third of five settings under consideration here is:


When a phlabaglobic daerthrope is awaiting issue from an embropheme, they use pectlions to communicate this state to the nearest unencumbered Generalised Phlaba (geph).

The pectlions will assign a geph to the daerthrope and the geph will seek out the daerthrope. Normally, each daerthrope will then be processed according to the order the gephs present themselves, until all phlabaglobic daerthropes in the same pectlionic group are processed.

However, when these daerthropes have this ESS activated, those with the most significant Index Value will take precedence over others. The relevant phlaba will pick up the daerthrope with the specific ESSIV, and leave the pectlion behind. (Note that any phlabaglobic daerthropes that do not have this ESS activated will not be affected by this ordering.)

Only when all daerthropes of this ESSIV have been processed will daerthropes with ESSIVs of lower significance be considered. This will continue until all daerthropes have been processed. Pectlions will then be able to react to new arrivals.

Note that the phlabaglobic daerthropes will all be processed in either situation. As such, triessivity is more significant where timing is an issue. Timing plays more of a part within chronomodular fenduments.
