Part 09: 'Ontological Self-Diversification'. Seldon's Seeings Series.

Part 09:  Seldon’s ‘‘‘Seeings’’’ Series --

 Ontological Self-Diversification via Self-Iterated Self-Reflexive Self-Involution.

Dear Readers,

It is my pleasure, and my honor, as an officer of the Foundation Encyclopedia Dialectica [F.E.D.] Office of Public Liaison, 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 ninth such release in this new series is entered 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].

This 9th instalment addresses the root of the dialectical principle of Meta-Genealogy.


...What the Dyadic and Triadic «aufheben»-functions [E.D. Editors:  What we -- all except for Seldon himself -- call ‘the Dyadic and Triadic Seldon Functions’.] describe is the ontological self-diversification of a given [sub-]universe[-of-discourse] that results from self-iterated, self-reflexive, self-refluxive, «aufheben» self-involution, beginning from the ‘ultimate ancestor ontology, or «arché»-ontology, of that [sub-]universe or Domain.”

“...Indeed, it is this ‘ontological self-diversification’ which creates what we call a ‘meta-genealogy’ -- a [generally] non-DNA-based, more comprehensive sort of ‘‘‘genealogy’’’.”

“...In such, dialectical or «aufheben» self-diversification of the «arché» of a given Encyclopedia Dialectica-identified Domain’, D, ‘self-continuates’ beyond that stage one or epoch one -- beyond, e.g., Dt2 = 1, or Dt3 = 1, in terms of its Domain’s ‘dialectical meta-model’ -- creating a ‘meta-lineage’, a non-DNA-based ontological lineage.”

“...As such, in that ‘meta-lineage’, every successive ontological kind is ‘familialy’ connected -- connected by ancestry -- all the way back to the «arché» kind, so that, explicitly, every successive ontological kind is already connected to every other that irrupted into existence before it, by way of ontological, «aufheben» ‘self-hybridization’ [‘self-meta-unit-ization’] or by ontological, «aufheben» ‘allo-hybridization’...”

“This way of describing the process sounds like this description holds only for diachronic, ‘“historical dialectics”’.  

But synchronic, ‘“systematic dialectics”’ follow a parallel course, at their most abstract, generic root.
