Seldon’s Opus: Key Excerpts. Excerpt Number 8 --
‘The Architectonic of Our «Kosmos».’
It is my pleasure, and my honor, as an Officer of the Foundation Encyclopedia Dialectica [F.E.D.] Office of Public Liaison, to share with you, from time to time, as they are approved for public release by the F.E.D. General Council, key excerpts from the internal writings of our co-founder, Karl Seldon.
The eighth such release in this new series is pasted in below. [Some E.D. standard edits have been applied to the direct transcript of our co-founder’s discourse].
“The architectonic of our «kosmos», both synchronically and diachronically; in its pre-human reaches, and in its ‘contemporary exo-human’ reaches, as well as in its human reaches, alike, is ‘qualo-fractal’; it is ‘meta-«arithmos»-ic’ and ‘«arithmoi»-combinatoric’; it is ‘meta-«monad»-ic’ and ‘«monads»-combinatoric’; it is ‘«aufheben»-istic’ -- in short, it is dialectical.”
