Purity & Dirt always in a vertical hierarchy, not horizontal continuum

"Pure-ness", that rhetorical term much beloved by Scientism, is never in fact allowed to exist in the horizontal continuum that its definition implies.

Lateral pure-ness *

That is, seeing a former mixture now separated into all its various pluralistic diversities ; 'pure but equal' substances in a chemically inclusive democracy.

No, in practise, a mixture is always separated, like a population of pre-1956 American school kids, into a vertical hierarchy of pure and dirty : 'separate and unequal'.

A chemical exclusive imperial hierarchy : worthy metropolitan master and unworthy colonial subject.

* Usefully confused with Jane Addams' "lateral progress"...
