A mode is a maximally densely tangled q-arrow at the top of the quale. (A): A system containing an AND and COPY gate. (B): The quale generated by X. Connections c13 and c23 are tangled at the top of the quale with γ = .25 bits. (C): The system as a whole is not tangled: entanglement between connection c32 and connections {c13,c23} is zero. Thus, the up-set ↑¬{c13,c23} is a mode: it is not contained in a larger up-set with higher γ. (D) Cartoon of a hierarchy of modes in a complex quale.
