Although the shaft stands completely apart from and is incomparable to any of the six branches that it unites, and is a perfect equal blend of the two antithetical yet complimentary natures of both sides, (as signified by its purple color)—in the 4-3 divisional schema it always gets counted with branches 1, 2, and 3.
