F.E.D. ‘Neologia’ -- Part 10: ‘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.
This tenth 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 F.E.D. Special Council for the Encyclopedia, to the direct transcript of our co-founder’s discourse].
In this 10th installment, Seldon comments upon the F.E.D. practice of continually advancing the English language -- of continually extending it by adding new language, progressing the human Phenome, including thereby.
“...When we see an opportunity to, potentially, enhance human languages, e.g., by adding a new word, or a new ‘‘‘usage conjugation’’’, we do not hesitate to so attempt.”
“... We have propagated many such ‘memetic mutations’ in our ~54 years of operations, from inside the contemporary Terran ‘human phenome’, and we continue to do so.”
“... We expect that, typically, those of our ‘neologia’ which prove sufficiently useful, and widely-enough so, will be replicated and will spread, as “part and parcel” with the expanded reproduction of the Terran ‘human phenome’ entire.”
“We also expect that, typically, the rest of the ‘neologia’ that we have launched into the Terran ‘human phenome’ -- those not found to be of sufficiently wide-and-deep utility -- will “fall by the wayside.”
