### Part 2 -- Some Help with "Getting a Handle" on F.E.D. Dialectics.

CONTINUED FROM MY IMMEDIATELY-PREVIOUS BLOG ENTRY
[Note:  This topic will also be continued further in my next blog entry].

Below, we use '(---]' as the assignment-relation symbol, to signify the assignment -- "generic symbol (---] specific symbol", e.g., q/n (---] q/X, and '=' signifies "is equal to by definition".

We also use a standard partitioning of visible-light-spectrum-order color-coding to call attention to dialectical, qualitative ordinalities: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.

The
F.E.D. presentation of their "meta-system" of Dialectical Arithmetic, which they model, in "bootstrap" fashion -- using the very second system of dialectical arithmetic in that meta-system itself, the NQ system in that multi-system progression, unfolds as follows, through its 4th step [i.e., through its (2^4)th = 16th system of arithmetic] [wherein I am doing my best to render the "syntactics" of the various, ever-richer "meta-numeralic" units, or <<monads>>, of the "spaces" , or "sets", basing these successive axiomatic systems of dialectical arithmetic, although with a fraction of the innovative typographical facilities that F.E.D. has at its disposal] --
