I Follow up on the 2008 experiments of Tomasz Paterek et al, which link quantum randomness with logical independence. Analysis reveals, that the Paterek formalism (unwittingly) relaxes a Quantum Postulate. That relaxation denies the axiomatic imposition of unitary, Hermitian and Hilbert space mathematics, while allowing these to arise freely, as logically independent structures. Surprisingly, the Paterek formalism demands a non-unitary environment — where unitary structures may freely switch on or off. The unitary environment is necessary in the formation of superposition states, but not eigenstates. This unitary condition is sustained by self-referential logical circularity around cyclic sequences of transformations. Amongst all possible self-referential systems, these generate stable, persistent structures we recognise as quantum mechanical vectors and operators. Circularity explains indeterminacy's non-causedness. Non-definiteness, stems from geometric amb iguity — typically, left|right handedness in the Bloch sphere. Collapse is caused when the unitary symmetry is deformed by some agency, such as a magnetic field or polariser.
