Conjugate operator arrays, combining classical- and quantum configurations as a united edifice, impart a compelling analogy between gravitation and Gödel's incompleteness theorem. The self-referential nature of the relationship is ensured by entrenched operator degeneracies and serves as the foundation for studying the seven traditionally typified temporal arrows. Amongst these gravitation establishes the “Gödelian arrow of time.” The complex symmetric formulation supports the possible gravitational origin of molecular chirality and other fundamental symmetry violations.
