Seldon Speaks: ONTOLOGY.

Full Title -- Seldon SpeaksONTOLOGY.

Dear Readers,

It is my pleasure, and my privilege, to share with you, from time to time, selections from the seminal sayings, shared by him among we of F.E.D., that are said by F.E.D.’s co-founder, Karl Seldon, including those regarding the more esoteric aspects of Foundation theory -- that is, the more abstract aspects, the "higher", more embracing generalizations -- when such are released, by the F.E.D. General Council, for public sharing.  The text reproduced below is a case in point.  The standard E.D. edits have been applied to this text.



A key realization/discovery, for me -- along my particular path to the first arithmetic for dialectic, to the psychohistorical-dialectical equations, the dialecticaltheory of everythingequations, and to the Foundation, was the following: 

‘‘‘Ontology’’’ -- the list or inventory of all of the kinds of things that have being in each given, successive now -- is not only plural, but dynamical; is not only dynamical, but is [“net”] expansive -- is growing in its plurality; is not only expansive, but self-expansive; is not only self-expansive, but PREDICTABLE -- is predictably so, in diverse [sub-]universes-of-discourse, and in our universe as a [as the] whole.”

“And the generic «modi operandi» of this plural, dynamical, self-expansive predictability of universe[-of-discourse] ontology is dialectic; is dialectical singularity; is ontological revolution.
