‘Reproductivity is Key to Durativity’, Part 05: ‘Seldon’s Soliloquies 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 fifth such release in this new 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].
In this 5th installment, Seldon obliquely addresses both ‘The Meta-Darwinian Principle’, which emerges from his dialectical, immanent critique of Darwinian Theory/Ideology, and also a ‘qualo-fractal’ concept of ‘the holographic principle’, as a theory of progressions of eventities which may exhibit self-similarity but without ‘qualo-fractal’ scaling.
“...eventities which exhibit the quality of ‘durativity’, those which continue to exist, which endure in existence most extendedly, which ‘existentiate’, self-extending and self-prolonging themselves “in” and “through” and AS [a part of] concrete time, concrete duration, for the longer intervals, are, typically, NOT those which are produced but once, and, then, remain, somehow without further change.”
“Instead, such endurance inheres in that which is continually reproduced, that which sustainedly self-reproduces at a sufficient rate; that which is reproduced by a process of continuing, self-similar, ‘self-re-synthesis’, as a ‘temporal qualo-quanto-fractal’, as a temporal self-similarity ‘re-gress’, or ‘pro-gress’, in some cases with, but in many cases without, ‘qualo-fractal scaling’.”
“And it is NOT “Natural Selection”, a term which conjures a subliminal sense of [e.g., “Nature” as] some hypostatized, fetishized, subject-object-inverted, ‘crypto-Deific’ Selector-Agent as a ‘pseudo-Agent’ or ‘pseudo-Subject’ with respect to the actual agents, the self-reproducing eventities, as “Its” ‘pseudo-objects’, that determines the expanding or contracting “share” of existential “space” that these eventities “occupy” as time progresses.”
“On the contrary, it is the sustained relative rates of self-reproduction of those eventities, their ‘self-reproductivity’, that so determines.”
“Marx’s “growth of the social forces of production”, the growth that changes “the social relations of production”, i.e., the growth of the rate of human-social reproduction -- of the self-growth rate of ‘the societal self-reproductive self-force of the human species’; the growth of the ‘self-productivity’ of humanity and of human artefact-wealth -- is but the special, human species case of this general ‘meta-Darwinian Principle’...”
