Dear Readers,

###

This blog-entry continues a
new series, here, of excerpts from Karl Seldon’s “introduction to __dialectics__*”* sessions, for new recruits.

__dialectics__

###
In this new series, I
will share with you some of the delectable morsels of creative mentation that
fly forth from these sessions, once their transcripts have been edited, by the __E__. __D__. editors, and cleared, by the Foundation’s General Council, for public
sharing.

### I have entered, below, an excerpt of Karl Seldon’s remarks from the edited transcript of a recent such session.
