A totalizing eigenbasis (TEB) or a universal ontology is a set of totalizing ontological objects which are orthogonal (that is, independent from each other in construction and explanation)  but also span the explainable universe (can in concert explain everything that can be explained by any set of basis concepts).
A totalizing eigenbasis may also be relative to a restricted universe, such as "economics" or "game of life", or an optimal solution given a cost functions e.g. compactness or efficiency of explanations.
open questions

If the explainable universe is welldefined, what is the dimensionality of its TEB?

waves, fractals, and memory/forgetting

clumping and diffusion/avalanche
