There must be a Malkioni equivalent of illumination,
though I think it is yet again different from both
illumination and enlightenment.

Gut reaction, no. From reasoning, why not? How should
the wizard tell that the person is chaotic?

I think the effects are quite similar, but the actual
state of consciousness is subtly different: finding
the One in yourself as opposed to finding yourself in
the One. Like a mathematical limes value approaching
zero from the positive and negative side.
