-- Part 04: Seldon’s Secrets Series.
It is my pleasure, and my honor, as an elected member of the Foundation Encyclopedia Dialectica [F.E.D.] General Council, 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 fourth release in this new such 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 4th installment, Seldon describes what we mean by ‘determinate negativity’ in the context of ‘Categorial Dialectic’.
“… Each newly-emerged ontological category in a dialectical ‘categories-series’, or “categorial progression”, will have a ‘not-ness’ – a gulf of determinate negativity – between it and every other ontological category already extant in that dialectical ‘categories-series’, that dialectical “categorial progression”.”
“That is, every such dialectical category will be qualitatively distinct/distinguished/-distinguishable from all other dialectical categories in that/its Domain’s series.”
“Therefore, also, the heterogeneous “sum”, or ‘qualitative superpositioning’, of all such categories’ symbols -- or ‘ontological «arithmoi» meta-numerals’ -- will be “non-amalgamative” [cf. Musés], or «asumbletoi», with one another, i.e., “unaddable” [cf. Platon, regarding his dialectical-idealist/eternalist «arithmoi eidetikoi» “eide”].”
