we should distinguish between symmetrical connectives like je, joi, ce,
jo'u, ju'e, bi'i, ku'a, pi'u, jo'e
and assymetric like
ja, jo, ju, bi'o, mi'i, ce'o, fa'u.

mi su'eifa'u do citka lo plise (su'ei) fa'u lo perli = Each of us eats
both an apple and a pear.
su'eimi'i can be for people living in 3d space inside a 4d hypercube thus
every point for them is the centre and the surroundings.
bi'o and ce'o can probably be used for describing oscilations.

as for ce'oi i dont know what it means.
