[Harry Partch, Genesis of a Music, 2nd ed., p. 75]

One of the Utonality correlatives...; example: "the 5 Udentity of 7/4 unity is 7/5".

[Joe Monzo]

A simpler way to express Partch's definition is to say that an udentity is an identity of an utonality. In common music-theory terminology, an udentity is a member of a minor chord, but measured by 3rds downward from the 5th (rather than upward from the root as in a major chord).
