Dialectic: ‘The Assumption of Combinicity’, Part 02: ‘Seldon’s Soliloquies Series’.

Dialectic:  The Assumption of Combinicity, Part 02:  ‘Seldon’s Soliloquies Series.

Dear Reader,

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.

The second such release in this new series is posted 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 2nd installment addresses the dialectic of the «genos» of hesion, e.g., in the forms, or «species», of co-hesion and/versus of ad-hesion, i.e., the dialectic of erosis, in the Seldonian dialectic as mapped by the language of the NQ arithmetic for dialectics.


...Our, dialectical, interpretation of the NQ arithmetic/algebra presupposes or assumes the general, generic ‘combinatoricity’ or ‘combinicity’ of typical, ontological «monads»; that typical ontological «species» ‘«arithmoi»-of- «monads»’ -- reflected in human minds as ontological categories -- typically contain at least one sub-«species» of «monads» that will tend to ‘‘‘fuse’’’; that will co-here’ with their own kind, and/or that will ad-here’ with other kinds.  E.g., among the ‘pre-nuclear/sub-nuclear’ “particles, not all bosons and fermions will cohere/combine with one another.  But “quarks and “gluons will, under certain cosmological conditions, cohere/combine, e.g., creating the ‘nuclear sub-atomic’ “particles known as, “mesons and “protons, as well as short-lived “hyperons, etc.  And “protons and “electrons will, under some conditions, adhere/combine to form “neutrons.

“This generic, widespread, essentially universal phenomenon of erosis; this dialectic of the «genos» of ‘hesions’ -- i.e., of its «species» of co-hesions, or auto-hesions, or homeo-hesions, and/versus its «species» of ad-hesions, or ‘allo-hesions, or hetero-hesions -- is a key feature of the dialecticality’ of experienced reality.  Without the ubiquity of this phenomenon, we might counter-factually suppose, that there would be little or no «aufheben» -- little or no  «aufheben» self-meta-«monad»-ization’ or auto-meta-«monad»-ization’, and little or no «aufheben» allo-meta-«monad»-ization’.”

“«Aufheben» co-hesion’ is the genesis of dialectical, contra-Boolean’, self-hybridization’ or self-combinatorics’, and of dialectical-ontological antithesis categories, partial and full.”

“«Aufheben» ad-hesion’ is the genesis of dialectical other-hybridization’ or other-combinatorics’, and of dialectical-ontological synthesis categories, partial and full.”

“If ‘tersefied’ via ideogramic symbolization, what we are saying is that the emergence or irruption of a perceived new ontological «arithmos»-of-«monads» -- represented to the human mind, by the human mind, as an ontological category -- call it qa, tends to be followed by the later emergence or irruption of a qualitatively, ontologically different, but related actuality, call it qaa |-=  qb. The latter tends to be followed, later still, by the emergence or irruption of a qualitatively, ontologically different, but related actuality, call it qba |-=  qc.  This entire ‘ontic movement’ can be expressed, as a whole, as follows --

qa   -->   qa + qb   -->   qa + qb + qc

-- wherein qaa expresses the homeo-hesive moment’, and qba expresses the hetero-hesive moment’, of the entire erosis.”

“Indeed, it is this inductively-derived ‘combinatory expectantcy’, or ‘combinatoric expectantcy’, that forms the basis of our hypothesis of the probability of dialectical predictivity’; of our expectation of ‘the predictivity of dialectic, in the face of new ontological emergences.
