This chapter introduces the triadic model of the cosmos as a cycle of ceaseless folding and unfolding, in a flux between the three planes of the infinite, information, and image. Marks introduces enfolding-unfolding aesthetics as a triadic method for analyzing this folding process, with attention to information as the human and political filter of the infinite. This chapter gets practical, outlining the method of enfolding-unfolding aesthetics, surveying manners of unfolding and the style necessary for a successful unfolding. We'll see that equally important is enfoldment, the strategy of protecting things from being unfolded related to Glissant's term opacity.
