The idea of steps in a continuum is one that needs thought and special attention. The continuum is stepless until the selection of a frequency value is made. Once made, a string of consequences follows auromatically; the entire family of intervals related to the first selection falls into place. One can deduce from this the status before and after the firsr choice. Out of the void, so to speak, a complete tensional heirarchy of structural elements is given substantiality by the one singular decision. Of course, all pattern would be totally different in another element instead if points were employed or if another coordinate geometry were devised. There is potentially a great variety of patterns by each choice, with each parameter, and with every geometric combination.
Obviously, the options are as infinite (for the visualist) as they are to the composer of music.
