A dichotomy is a binary redundancy that can be reduced to a grid.

A tree is a unit in a process of perpetual branching.

Lewis Carol tells us a portmanteau is two meanings packed in one word.

Dichonotree is a portmanteau of both its literal meaning as a coat rack, an article of furniture on which to hang preconceived notions and a living, bifurcating force of growth and novelty.

A Rationalist and a Vitalist take a stroll

as Humpty Dumpty has a fall,

The root of an iconic coat-tree

dons the hand of duality.
