I've been working on this some, so here are some better definitions
I've come up with after putting more of my ideas into words:

- Sysop
     A mind who's charged with the upkeep of Sysop Space and thus Unix

- Unix Reality
     The system of Sysop Space that ensures the non violation of
     volition with assistance from the Sysop (i.e. the Sysop is the
     source of intelligent decision making when needed). So named
     because of its resemblance to parts of POSIX.

These changes make it clearer that the Sysop is not the system, but
the intelligence behind the system.
