Dialectic: ‘Ontological Combinatorics’, Part 12: Seldon’s ‘‘‘Seeings’’ Series.
It is my pleasure, and my honor, as an officer of the Foundation Encyclopedia Dialectica [F.E.D.] Office of Public Liaison, and as a voting member of F.E.D., 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 twelfth such release in this series is posted 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 12th instalment addresses the ontological and combinatoric nature of Seldonian dialectic.
“... ‘ontological combinatorics’ -- including [contra-Boolean] ‘ontological self-combinatorics’, as of multiple atom units in the constitution of a typical molecule unit by the ‘mutual uni[t]fication’ of that heterogeneous multiplicity of atom units -- is the major way in which new ontology ‘continuingly’ irrupts into being.”
“It is the way in which new kinds of ‘‘‘[concrete] numbers’’’ [new «arithmoi aisthetoi»] are born; the way in which ‘‘‘concrete numbers’’’ [«arithmoi aisthetoi»] of qualitatively new kinds are born.”
“It is also the actuality which our dialectic algebras are designed and primed to mime.”
