N2 - In this article we construct a mathematical/topological framework for comprehending fundamental concepts in Plato's theory of Forms; specifically the dual processes of: 1. The participation/partaking-methexis of the many particulars predicated as F to the Form-essence F , according to their degree of participation to it. 2. The presence-parousia of the Form-essence F to the particulars predicated as F , in analogy to their degree of participation to F as in 1
