Daimonian is an umbrella term for any system, sisasystem, headmate, or internal entity, process, or construct that in some way embodies or represents a concept. This includes any internal representation, embodiment, function, or expression that is symbolic.
The representative aspect may be the primary feature of the entity in question, as with a conceptive being sourced from a concept itself, or it may simply be a collateral attribute, as with a manager sometimes embodying the system's executive function.
