The Universal Nomenclature Convention is a series of protocols and rules followed by the Supreme Academy of Sciences and Discoveries when defining and naming dimensional space. It was created in 12/4/23 by Hansell Erkelmord once the fifth dimensional plane was discovered.
The Universal Nomenclature Convention operates as follows:
- All dimension names must begin with 'D-' as a prefix.
- The first digit is the type number, describing the type of dimension discovered.
- 1 for divine dimensions.
- 2 for common dimensions.
- 3 for regular dimensions.
- 4 for explanar dimensions.
- 5 for tersed dimensions.
- Higher numbers represent unique characteristics that have not yet been defined. All dimensions sharing said characteristics will use the same number until a new classification term is established.
- The first letter is the descriptor character, defining the main dimensional cosmos, as per the rules of Analog Dimensionry.
- The second digit is the Tersing number, defining Tersing potential within the dimension.
- The third digit (if present) represents the number of dimensional analogue within the main dimensional cosmos of the defined dimension. These digits must always be super-scripted.
All dimensional nomenclature depends on the dimensional characteristics themselves, resulting in non-static names. Updated dimensional definitions are published every 5 rotations by the SASD.
