Thanks for invoking

*South Park* ... they certainly understand the nature of zero-sum monatomic relationships:

...hey, wait ...

**Bernie/Brady 2020** ...

*Dream Ticket, bro..!!!*
Once one conquers the concept of

*monatomia*, they can then

grasp the significance of atomic interactions.

--------[ **WAIT ... THERE'S MORE!!!** ]-------
* Since the term apparently doesn’t exist, '

*treble monatomic'* will be defined as three elements combined into a singular zero-sum entity.

The existing handy term

*monatomic* refers to considering two outcomes or elements as a single zero-sum entity, where there is a

*single* relationship for outcomes A and B, which can described as a single simple ratio: A/B, a rational number which then can be inversed, of course (specific metric not important at this point).

*Treble monatomic* considers

*three* elements as a single zero-sum entity, where there is the more complex relationship of outcomes A, B

*and* C, which can be described by

*three* different ratios: A/B, A/C, and B/C, all rational numbers that can be inversed, as well. The use of the term

*treble* refers to the number of relevant ratios, which is same as the number of elements in this case, but that’s only true for three zero-sum elements ... with four monatomic elements, the number of ratios is 6 ... with 5 elements, it's 10, so the number of relevant ratios grows arithmetically with the number of elements.

In many two-team sporting events -- such as soccer -- either Team A or Team B could win, or there could be a tie or draw, where neither team wins. So the treble monatomic relationship can be shown as the following (order not important), joined by other examples that are less ambiguous, such as a horse race, or more ambiguous in being defined by the state or status of the element or outcome, rather than with a clear-cut score at the end of a game:

- Team A / Draw / Team B
- Horse A / Horse B / Horse C
- Black / Grey / White
- Right / Grey / Wrong
- Yes / Grey / No
- Yes / Maybe / No
- My way / Highway /
*Let's talk about this later...*
- Protein / Fat / Carbohydrates

The dynamics of treble monatomic relationships would vary widely. In a soccer game, a transition from Team A winning to Team B winning would need to go through the Draw state (Team A <> Draw <> Team B). In contrast, in a rugby game (where points are scored in units of 2, 3 or 5), the lead could change hands several times, but a late score by the trailing team knots up the tally, the whistle blows and the game ends in a Draw. With the theoretical horse race, the elements are less interdependent. The other less-crisply defined treble monatomic relationships are much more amorphous, more uncertain and probably more interesting.
