...Our dialectograms focus upon a «speci»-fic kind of «speci»-ation:  dialectical «speci»-ation.”

“In the ‘‘‘Hegelian’’’, triadic variant of this «speci»-al kind of «speci»-ation-- triadic dialectical «speci»-ation -- the ‘«arché»-«species»’ category, the category or «arithmos» [i.e., number, in the ancient sense] whose «monads» become extant first, is followed by, and is ‘‘‘evolutely’’’ [typically not ‘‘‘convolutely’’’] succeeded by, a second «species» category, an ‘‘‘opposing’’’ first meta-«species»’ and/or first contra-«species» meta-category, and/or contra-category.”

“The latter category is then, in its turn, followed by, and ‘‘‘evolutely’’’ succeeded by, a first uni-«species» uni-categorywhich ontologically hybridizes the ‘«arché»-«species»’ and its meta-«species»/ contra-«species»’. ...

... Categories are something that we constantly use, in our thinking, our speaking, our writing, often without being aware of that use, and of their usefulness.”

Our ideography is a shorthand, an algebra, a “character language” [cf. Leibniz] -- a language that uses “borrowed” phonetic characters to represent, no longer sounds of speech, but, instead, the humans-made idea-objects that are whole categories; to represent all of their content.”

“It is a language about how categories combine.”

“However, the key to the meaningfulness of the sentence above is that this categorial ideography covers not just the “combinations” of one category-symbol with one or more other, disparate category-symbols. The key to the success of this ideography is that it also covers the self-combinations’ of categories.”
  
“That’s what makes this ‘categoryological’ algebra, or “class” algebra, more than Boolean.  This algebra does, indeed contain the Boolean part of the ‘‘‘self-multiplication’’’ of a category or “class” symbol.  But its form of category-symbol ‘‘‘self-multiplication’’’ also goes beyond that Boolean part.”

“What does the ‘self-combination’ or ‘‘‘self-multiplication’’’ of a category-variable represent, per this ‘categoryology’?”

“Consider the “units” called “letters of the alphabet”, or “phonetic characters”.  By the presently-existing [net] ‘self-combination’ of that category, we may mean, for example, the category of “words” -- of word “units”, words being another, higher level, higher scale -- more inclusive -- kind of “units” in relation to the letter “units”.  The word “units” contain letter “units”.  That is, each typical word unit contains multiple letter units.

“Or consider the “unit” called “an atom”, of the category called “atoms”.  We hold that the earliest “molecular clouds”, in the early phases of our universe, from which new stars [and, later, new planetary systems] formed, began as ‘‘‘atomic clouds’’’.  Atom-units are presently combined to form another, higher level, higher scale kind of “units”, molecule-units, that “belong to” the category of “molecules”.”  The molecule “units” contain atom “units”.  That is, each typical molecule unit contains multiple atom units.

“The discovery that this ‘categoryology’ is dialectical is best grasped as a discovery after the fact.  First comes the category-ideography/-algebra/-shorthand.  Later comes the observation that it is a dialectical ideography. Such an observation may be made by those who have gained experience with using this ‘categoryology’ repeatedly, to help them to guide their thoughts in domains of practical application, and who have thereby become familiar with its ways.  They may notice, in time, that its patterns mime different aspects of those of the classical «species» of ‘Rhetorical Dialectics’, in Zeno, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Hegel, and Marx. ...

Stephen Hawking on FUSION POWER -- Reaping the Wrath of the ‘Rocke-Nazis’.







Stephen Hawking on FUSION POWER --

Reaping the Wrath of theRocke-Nazis.  GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.







Dear Readers,

GLOBAL STRATEGIC HYPOTHESES.  Stephen Hawking’s new, and final, posthumously published, 2018 book, entitled Brief Answers to the Big Questions [Bantam, NY], is not limited, in its prophetic content, to predictions and speculations regarding what we Seldonians call the irruption of the meta-human.

It also contains a brief but unequivocal call, at the very end of the book, for the development of that preeminent potential human-societal [self-re-]productive force that is fusion power, as a key to a decent future, or even to any future at all, for humanity.  

This call comes at a time when the Rocke-Nazi,Eugenicist, ruling faction of the capitalist ruling class -- that faction that has been ruling, ever since their extermination of the leadership of ‘the Roosevelt faction’ of the capitalist ruling class [John Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., etc., etc.], up until their recent challenge by ‘the Trump faction’ of the capitalist ruling class -- i.e., the Rockefeller, capitalist-anti-capitalist [“socialist” [i.e., Orwellian, totalitarian police-state state-capitalist]], ‘‘‘human-anti-humanist’’’ faction of the capitalist ruling class, has seen to it that even the mere mention of this prospect, let alone in a way which does not ridicule but, instead, actually considers it, let alone actually promoting it, has become exceedingly rare. 

By championing fusion power -- which would ‘technodepreciate’ to nearly nothing the capital-value of the entire global infrastructure of the Rocke-Nazi Global Dictatorship of Petroleum, which infrastructure, other than and in addition to their system of Global Central Banking and Finance Control, is the primary premise upon which rests their power to rule and to mass-murder -- Stephen Hawking has, courageously, earned the undying hatred of the global Rocke-Nazi-pestilence, and will no doubt be targeted by the Rocke-Nazis for vilification, or at least for censorship and oblivion, in the vast global media networks that they control, now that he is safely dead [notwithstanding the way in which Hawking couches his call for fusion power in the politically-correct terms of “global warming”, the Rocke-Nazis primary ideological ‘‘‘excuse’’’ for their whole ploy of People Are Pollution Environmentalism, and for their policy of Global Warming Hyper-Austerity -- their primary pogrom for bringing about their planned mass exterminations of “~95%of the human race, and which are already well underway in ‘‘‘stealth’’’ mode]:




[Stephen Hawking, p. 209]: “What world-changing idea, small or big, would you like to see implemented by humanity?

“This is easy.  I would like to see the development of fusion power to give an unlimited supply of clean energy, and a switch to electric cars.”

“Nuclear fusion would become a practical power source and would provide us with an inexhaustible supply of energy, without pollution or global warming.”

Stephen Hawking on the Advent of ‘the Meta-Human’, III. -- ‘‘‘Cyborg Bionics/Prosthetics’’’.







Stephen Hawking on the Advent of the Meta-Human, III. --

‘‘‘Cyborg Bionics/Prosthetics’’’.







Dear Readers,

We have predicted, as the source of the key self-hybrid neo-ontology of the next epoch of cosmological meta-evolution -- at least locally, in our own solar system -- a qualitative change; an ontologically-dynamical, neo-ontological meta-finite singularity that we call the irruption of the meta-human -- the advent of a new «genos», comprising three new «species», of cosmological ontology that we call meta-humanity --

qh  =  h  =  h1,  --->  h2  =   h + Deltah   =   h + qhh  |-=   h  +  y .

We hold that none of the three, dialectically-interrelated predicted «species» of this new «genos» of meta-humanity is as yet extant in the contemporary Terran ecosphere of [mere] humanity.

We also hold that protoic preformations of each of these three «species» are already extant in our times, largely, though not completely, unnoticed as such by most of our contemporaries.

Given this background, it is interesting to read the thoughts of the late physicist, Stephen Hawking, on the systematically third of these three «species, that of ‘‘‘Cyborg Bionics/-Prosthetics’’’, in his posthumously published, 2018 book Brief Answers to the Big Questions [Bantam, NY].

Hawking fairly clearly distinguishes the systematically first and second [cosmo-ontological] categories of this predicted new «genos», what we call ‘human Genome Self-Re-Engineering, mediated through the human Phenome, and “AI”, which we call ‘‘‘Android Robotics’’’.

He sees these two predicted categories as qualitative opposites, and also as in at least potential mutual dyadic, polar opposition in terms of agendas, as we have seen in the previous two installments in this series. 

However, when it comes to the systematically third [cosmo-ontological] «species»-category of this predicted new «genos», that of ‘‘‘Cyborg Bionics/Prosthetics’’’, Hawking does not seem to discern a clear, distinct «species»-category, although his brief description, quoted below, of technologically-enhanced -- including especially electronically-enhanced -- human bodies does echo key defining features of this envisioned category, e.g., as set forth, fictionally, in the Star Trek visualizations of the “Borg”, for example.  Here is that description in Hawking’s own words --

[p. 194]: “...we cannot predict what we might achieve when our own minds are amplified by AI.”

“Perhaps with the tools of this new technological revolution we can make human life better.”
 
“For instance, researchers are developing AI that would help reverse paralysis in people with spinal-cord injuries.  Using silicon chip implants and wireless electronic interfaces between the brain and the body, the technology would allow people to control their body movements with their thoughts.”

“I believe that the future of communication is brain-computer interfaces.”

“There are two ways:  electrodes on the skull and implants.  The first is like looking through frosted glass, the second is better but risks infection.”

“If we can connect a human brain to the internet it will have all of Wikipedia as its resource.”
