The natural antonym of ectopolitan is enatopolitan
In my attempt to make a natural antonym to the word 'ectopolitan', I noticed that in ectopolitan or εκτοπολίτικος in Greek, another Greek root close to the εκτο root is έκτος (or εκτος), which means sixth or 6th in Greek.
So εκτοπολίτικος in Greek, basically sounds like "sixth civilian or politician".
Now what is the "antisix" number? Well, visually it is nine (9), which is like the number six (6) flipped vertically, but also horizontally! In fact, if you do the same to the holon of Utopia or Paradise in Cesidian analytic theology (Cat), a new special and multidisciplinary kind of calculus, Utopia or Paradise ends up in the same place of Dystopia or Hell!
And I also found another, very antiPythagorean trait of the number nine (9) as well.
Ninth in Greek is ένατος (or ενατος).
So the antonym of ectopolitan or εκτοπολίτικος, is actually enatopolitan or ενατοπολίτικος, which of course sounds like "ninth civilian or politician".
So the most natural antonym to ectopolitan (or ectopolite), is enatopolitan (or enatopolite).
One needs to note that the sequence of numbers such as 1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21, etc, is following the pattern of every abstract "triangular number" T(n), where
T(n) = [n(n + 1)] / 2
So for n = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, etc.
T(n) = 1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21, etc respectively.
However, the sequence of numbers such as 0, 2, 5, 9, 14, 20, etc, is following the pattern of every "triangular number" T(n) minus 1, where
T(n) – 1 = {[n(n + 1)] / 2} – 1 = (n² + n – 2) / 2 = [(n – 1)(n + 2)] / 2
So for n = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, etc.
T(n) = 0, 2, 5, 9, 14, 20, etc respectively.
So "triangular numbers" such as T(n), besides being very Pythagorean, have a strong characteristic of uniqueness, because they stand out unlike other numbers.
According to Britannica, 6 is both the sum (1 + 2 + 3) and the product (1 × 2 × 3) of the first three numbers. It is therefore considered "perfect". In mathematics, a perfect number is one that equals the sum of its divisors (excluding itself), and 6 is the first perfect number in this sense because its divisors are 1, 2, and 3. The perfection of 6 shows up in the six days of Creation in Genesis, with God resting on the seventh day. The structure of the Creation parallels the sum 1 + 2 + 3: on day 1 light is created; on days 2 and 3 heaven and earth appear; finally, on days 4, 5, and 6 all living creatures are created.
However, "triangular numbers" minus 1 as T(n) – 1, the number 1 being both a "triangular number" and the very symbol of uniqueness, are like ectopolitans deprived of their uniqueness.
According to Britannica, the number 9 often represents pain or sadness. The 16thcentury Catholic theologian Peter Bungus pointed out that the 9th Psalm predicts the coming of the Antichrist. In Islamic cosmology the universe is made from 9 spheres — the traditional 8 of Ptolemy, plus a 9th added by the Arab astronomer Thabit ibn Qurrah about 900 CE to explain the precession of the equinoxes. In AngloSaxon cultures, 9 people assaulting one constituted a genuine attack. In German law, the ownership of land terminated after the 9th generation. In Greek mythology the River Styx, across which souls were ferried to the underworld, is described as having 9 twists.
So the natural enemies of ectopolitans are enatopolitans, because they are friends to conformity and groupthink, more than friends to uniqueness and original thinking.
In conclusion, in my attempt to create a natural antonym to the word ectopolitan, I actually ended up achieving three things I had not expected to achieve:

I started the foundations of natural ectolanguages on a truly sound, and nonarbitrary basis;

I started creating mathematics and geometrybased antonyms, not just languagebased antonyms;

I began to incorporate into ectolanguages like Ectoenglish and Ectogreek — but this can be extended to also other ectolanguages —, some of the logogrammatic qualities of ectolanguages like Ectochinese.
Below is a table of how ectopolitans call their enemies in a nondisparaging manner. It was completed on 22 September 2022 (CMT). All the preliminary work for the antonym of ectopolitan in Ectoenglish, or enatopolitan, has been completed on 15:38 CMT of 21.09.2022, or L2Ρ04K2022•651.
Besides enatopolitan (21.09.2022), which is the first example of an enatonym (22.09.2022), another example of an enatonym is a nonectolanguage such as American English (enUS), and such an example is called an enatolanguage (22.09.2022).
