‘Categoriality’ -- Part 04: Seldon’s ‘‘‘Seeings’’’ Series.










Part 04:  Seldon’s ‘‘‘Seeings’’’ Series --

Categoriality.







Dear Readers,



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 from the internal sayings, of our co-founder, Karl Seldon.

The fourth such release in this new series is entered below [Some E.D. standard edits have been applied, in the version presented below, by the editors of the Special Council for the Encyclopedia, to the direct transcript of our co-founder’s discourse].

This 4th instalment addresses the Seldonian view of the categorial focus versus the propositional focus of the ideo-ontology of different kinds of logics.







Seldon:

Dialectic is not, primarily, propositional, as is formal logic.” 

“Dialectic is primarily categorial.

“Marxism-Leninism” is a Fraudulent Misnomer. Leninism is not Marxian. Leninism is anti-Marxian, and ‘ante-Marxian’. Leninism is [state-]capitalist.







Marxism-Leninism is a Fraudulent Misnomer.  Leninism is not Marxian.
Leninism is anti-Marxian, and ante-Marxian.  Leninism is [state-]capitalist.







Dear Readers,



Leninism is a bloody, ruling-class ideology -- an ideology in Marx’s sense, and an object to be answered by withering critique in Marx’s sense.

The Leninist ideology was used by neo-Jacobin, putschist, [state-]capitalist parties to seize dictatorial state power from ‘sub-capitalist’, crypto-feudal ruling classes, and/or from weak, capitalist-imperialism-suppressed, comprador bourgeoisies, in the largest ‘proto-national’ territories of the global “semi-periphery” -- ‘semi-peripheral’ to the geographical capitalist core of capitalist-imperialist nation-states.

Its effect was to enrich the tiny new, state-bureaucratic ruling classes of the resulting one-party state, police-state, totalitarian, ‘proto-state-capitalist’ regimes, at the expense of the vast majority of the rest of the populations of those territories.
These new, state-bureaucratic ruling classes employed state-terrorism to perpetrate a new channel of original/primitive accumulation of state-owned industrial capital on the backs of the thereby hyper-exploited peasantry and nascent wage-working class majorities there.
These new, state-bureaucratic ruling classes did so in order to construct national military-industrial complexes designed to be sufficient to save the power of those new, state-bureaucratic ruling classes from external overthrow by military invasions from the capitalist geographical core, by order of the capitalist-imperialist nation-states’ private-capitalist ruling classes.  This ‘‘‘salvation’’’ of the new state-bureaucratic ruling classes’ power to rule was intended to be via deterring those private-capitalist ruling classes from military attacks upon the state-bureaucratic ruling classes’ subjugated national territories.
This induction of military-industrial-complex-forming “primitive accumulation” and industrialization, by the capitalist core, in these semi-peripheral territories, by threat of military overthrow of their new, bureaucratic ruling classes is the key initial transmission mechanism by which the private-capitalist world-market “law of value” also shaped these nascent, ‘proto-state-capitalist’ nation-states, at a time when their vast territories afforded them a degree of autarkic potential, and a transiently-survivable relative isolation from international trade.
These ‘proto-state-capitalist’ transients were destined to bifurcate into one of two main more-sustainable trajectories. 
Either new popular revolutions therein would succeed in transitioning them to state-dominated, mixed private-capitalist/state-capitalist, nominally-capitalist-democratic authoritarian oligarchies, the democratic aspirations of their people thwarted by the still-dominant power of the core, capitalist-imperialist nation-states. 
Or, their initial, semi-autarkic ‘proto-state-capitalist’ formations, relatively isolated from world market international trade, would give way, on the backs of failed internal popular revolutions, to full-fledged state-capitalism, on the ‘national super-corporation’ model, dependent upon success in international-commerce, and tolerant of subordinated elements of private capitalism under the domination of the sustained dictatorship of their Leninist state-bureaucratic ruling classes.
This is all prelude to, and part and parcel of, the globalization of proletarianization -- the formation of a world-wide working class, and the conversion of “hinterland”, ‘evolutely-«aufheben»-conserved’, archaic social formations into full-fledged, hybrid, state/private capitalist nation-states, increasingly state-capitalism-leaning -- ever-more-so with every amplitude-augmented “global great recession”.
This universalization of the wage-labor-relation-of-production must precede the formation of a global polity, and of a working class universal interest, that, alone, can potentiate a global transition to a ‘trans-capitalist political-economic democracy’, to ‘global renaissance’, and to global human flourishing.

Part 03: Seldon’s ‘‘‘Seeings’’’ Series -- Contributions of an Ontological Calculus.










Part 03:  Seldon’s ‘‘‘Seeings’’’ Series --

Contributions of an Ontological Calculus.







Dear Readers,



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 from the internal sayings, of our co-founder, Karl Seldon.

The third such release in this new series is entered below [Some E.D. standard edits have been applied, in the version presented below, by the editors of the Special Council for the Encyclopedia, to the direct transcript of our co-founder’s discourse].

This 3rd instalment addresses the Seldonian view of the potential efficacies of the new «organon» encoded in the axioms of an Ontological-Categorial Calculus such as the Seldonian NQ dialectical ideography.







Seldon:

Categories are the key conduits of human cognition.”

“An ontological categorial calculus that could capture key characteristics of human, categorial comprehension could contribute as a heuristic cognitive guide, codifying, for all, the contributions of the classic cases of categorial cognitive choreography by human history’s small corps of cardinally accomplished ‘categoryologists’.

‘‘‘Unpacking’’’ the «Arché» in Seldonian Dialectics.










‘‘‘Unpacking’’’ the «Arché» in SeldonianSynchronic [‘‘Systematic’’’] Dialectic.











Dear Readers,



...All of the «arché»-category-subsequent ontological categories of a given Domain, D, are already present, as ‘‘‘seeds’’’, immanently implicit ‘‘‘inside’’’ that initiating, or «arché», ontological category, for those who know that Domain, D, even if they know it only ‘“chaotically”’ [cf. Marx, Grundrisse].
Moreover, those ‘“seeds”’ of the other, «arché»-subsequent ontological categories of that Domain, that are already embryonically present, ‘“seeded”’ in that «arché» ontological category itself, are embryonically present with a graduated degree-of-presence that manifests an ‘order of [cognitive] accessibility’, for such knowers, one which mirrors the ordinal position, succession, and progression of these ontological categories once they have been developed to explicit, full, ‘‘‘sprouted’’’ and ‘‘‘matured’’’ presence, in their systematic order, in the later, more complete categorial series, or categorial progression, that constitutes the ‘‘‘dialectical categorial analysis’’’ of that Domain, D.  
The fuller ‘‘‘dialectical analysis’’’ of that Domain, into the series/‘‘‘sum’’’/‘qualitative superposition’ of all of the ‘ontological categories’ that it ‘‘‘contains’’’, for such knowers -- their implicit ‘order of accessibility’ in the cognition of the Domain itself by such knowers, is already also implicitly present, for those knowers, in the «arché»-category of that Domain. ...

The ‘‘‘Evoluteness’’’ of the Seldonian Ideography.










On the ‘‘‘Evoluteness’’’ of the Seldonian Dialectical Ideography.











Dear Readers,



In each presentational step, s [of a ‘synchronic, systematic-dialectical presentation’, e.g., of a present system], or in each historical epoch, t [of a ‘diachronic, historical-dialectical model’, e.g., of a past systems-progression], all of the earlier-evoked, earlier presented -- or most of the historically earlier-arisen -- ontological content that the ontological category-symbols represent, is still there, is still present.

However, that content has also moved off from the center of our attention -- if we are following the step-by-step presentation, or the epoch-by-epoch historical reconstruction, of the rising ontological level, or of the ontology [self-]expansion history, of the Domain being represented.

I.e., that earlier ontological content has receded back from that vanguard of latest-presented/newest ontological content, receding into the background of the ‘dialectical solution/description/analysis’ of that Domain, or, to use Hegel’s [English-translated] language, has become “demoted”.
In Seldon’s terms, all of that passed or past ontological content is no longer, or is less and less, ‘meta-meristemal’, after each mounting step of presentation, or after each advancing epoch of the history, for the Domain in question.
Seldon calls this pattern ‘“evolute”’, because [most of] passed or past ontology remains present in each successive, progressive present, in which new ontology is evoked, or irrupts.  The opposite, ‘“convolute”’ pattern, would see all passed or past ontological content completely displaced and replaced by the latest/newest ontological content, with each next step of presentation, or with each new epoch of historical reconstruction.

Part 02: Seldon’s ‘‘‘Seeings’’’ Series -- ‘Qualitative Compounding’.










Part 02:  Seldon’s ‘‘‘Seeings’’’ Series --

Qualitative, Ontological Self-Compoundingin theSelf-Constructionof Our Cosmos.







Dear Readers,



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 from the internal sayings, of our co-founder, Karl Seldon.

The second such release in this new series is entered below [Some E.D. standard edits have been applied, in the version presented below, by the editors of the Special Council for the Encyclopedia, to the direct transcript of our co-founder’s discourse].

This 2nd instalment addresses the Seldonian view of the dialectical self-construction of our cosmos, the singular ‘‘‘dialectic of Nature’’’ itself, as a dialectical process of qualitative -- ontological -- self-compounding.

In Seldon’s view, this self-compounding is well-described, in particular, by the single Dyadic Seldon-Function-based meta-equation that maps the progression of dialectical, «aufheben» equations that form our ontological-categorial, multi-metafinite singularity, qualo-fractal tower, meta-«gene»-alogical categorial-progression formulation of the known ‘‘‘meta-evolution’’ of this cosmos, to-date, e.g., starting from the ontological category of pre-/sub-atomic particles as «arché»-category, i.e., as the ultimate ancestor ontological category presently well known to modern science.  Of course, we also speculate that so-called Dark Energy, and Dark Matter, are deeper «arché» and Counter-«arché» ontological categories, respectively, for this cosmos.  





Seldon:

Our cosmos constructs itself via a kind of qualitative, ontological self-compounding, which is also a process of ‘‘‘self-complexification’’’ and of determinations self-enrichment, by way of a ‘self-iterating’ «aufheben» process -- i.e., a dialectical process -- which we call ‘metan­^-unit-ization’, ‘metan­^-«monad»-ization’, and ‘metan­^-holon-ization’.” 

“This process continually generates new ‘‘‘numbers’’’ -- new kinds of ‘‘‘numbers’’’, ‘‘‘numbers’’’ of new kind(s) [of units] -- ‘‘‘numbers’’’ in the ancient sense of ‘‘‘number’’’ [«arithmoi» of «monads»], wherein each such new ‘‘‘number’’’ is constituted by a self-proliferating multiplicity of [ontologically] different, mutually-similar, but not mutually-identical new kinds of units/«monads»/ holons.”

“This process IS the [singular] ‘‘‘Dialectic of Nature’’’ to-date.
