'Nature Abhors Infinity’ -- Part 02: ‘Seldon on the Record’ Series.


Nature Abhors Infinity -- Part 02: Seldon on the Record Series.




Dear Reader,




It is my pleasure, and my honor, as a 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 second 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 2nd installment, Seldon connects the classical principle, typically stated as “Nature abhors a vacuum”, or, in his version, stated as Nature abhors nothingness, to his principle that Nature abhors infinity.




Seldon --


Nature abhors “infinity”, precisely because “nature abhors a vacuum”, i.e., because ‘nature abhors nothingness’.”


“So-called “infinity”, were it ever actual, were it ever to manifest, would reduce everything -- everything actual; everything real; everything finite -- to [relative] nothingness.”


“Hence, in order to abhor nothingness, nature must also abhor “actual infinity” -- must abhor and preclude any actualization or manifestation of “infinity”.
