Seldon’s Opus: Key Excerpts. Excerpt Number 11 --
‘How Our Cosmos is Constituted’.
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 and sayings of our co-founder, Karl Seldon.
The eleventh such release in this new series is pasted in below. [Some E.D. standard edits have been applied, in the version presented below, to the direct transcript of our co-founder’s discourse].
“Our cosmos is constituted by a recurrently [re-]iterated «aufheben» self-movement of ‘‘‘self-involution’’’ [cf. Chardin], that is, by a recurrent dialectic, in the form of recurrent, ‘qualo-fractal’ whorls of ‘self-«aufheben» re-self-meta-«monad»-izations’ of the ‘self-hybrid’ immediate predecessor ‘self-meta-«monad»-izations’, or ‘self-meta-holon-izations’ [cf. Arthur Koestler, The Ghost in the Machine.].”
