Present ‘Comprehendedness’ vs. Actuality.

 

 

 

 

Present Comprehendedness vs. Actuality.



 

 

Dear Reader,

 

 

Just because we presently comprehend something not, does not means that it IS not, or that it will never be.

 

Many a premature dismissal, many a denial -- later much regretted -- based upon false certainty, can be averted if we keep this principle “in mind”, and thence ‘in action’.

 

Even many, even everyday things, that we may feel certain that we comprehend in toto, may later be discovered to rely, at least in part, on processes, eventually to be translated into our physical principles, which we have not yet even noticed, and of which we have not yet even taken note(s).

 

In the days much before this new century, would you have believed someone who told you that our universe is not only expanding, but is accelerating in its expansion? Or would you, instead, have dismissed that claim -- and them -- out of hand?

 

If someone had told you, also then, that most of the matter in our universe is inherently invisible, would you have even considered the possibility that they were right?

 

Suppose that someone had told, in 1900, that space is “curved” by nearby mass; that space-time is curved by mass-energy; that relatively greater gravity in their vicinity makes clocks, and all mass-energy-interior activity’, run at a slower rate relative to clocks, etc., in lower gravity; that there are places so under sway of such massiveness that not even light, once entering them, can ever leave them again as light, and that such places, in motion, can “ring” the very fabric of space-time itself; that gravity bends light waves; that objects grow in mass as they accelerate; that adding energy to an object increases its mass, and that matter can be converted wholly into energy, e.g., via contact with something called “anti-matter”.  Would you have even considered the possibility that the person was correct?  Or would you have called instantly for the strait-jacket thought-police?

‘Dialectic: Users’ Manual’, Edition 0, new book by Karl Seldon, just published by F.E.D. Press.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dialectic: Users Manual’, Edition 0new book by Karl Seldon, just published by F.E.D. Press.



 

 

 

 

 

Dear Reader,

 

 

 

The new book by F.E.D. co-founder Karl Seldon, entitled --

 

Dialectic: Users Manual.

 

-- has just been published by the F.E.D. Press.

 

To find out how to obtain your copy of this book from out of the small production run of its first edition, contact webmaster@dialectics.org .

 

Descriptions of this book from the inside back flap of its “dust cover jacket” --

(1) “In all of the 2,495 years since Heraclitus, during which “dialectic” has formed an extant meme in the ‘human phenome’, never before has there arisen an algorithmic -- indeed, a mathematical -- formulation of dialectic, that, by virtue of being algorithmic, or ‘recipe-al’, is thereby also learnable, potentially, not just by the ‘auto-didacticism’ of a handful of historic geniuses, but by humanity at large, and as a whole.”

 

(2) “This text, which sets forth a universal algorithmic-heuristic method, and model, of dialectic, can, thereby, help conduct its learners from the outermost reaches of the “formal operations” phase of adult cognitive development, to its successor phase -- to the “dialectical operations” phase.”

 

(3) “A key feature of this text, for me, is the way in which it rebalances the valuation of the quantitative versus the qualitative, and helps to redress, and to heal, the bias toward the “purely” quantitative that characterizes modernity, and that reflects the uttermost root of capitalism in the unconscious paradigm of the exchange-value: the equation of the qualitatively different apparently by “pure” quantity alone.  This text does this healing work partly by presenting the antidote of an arithmetic of “pure” qualities.  However, its whole thrust is toward both an everyday and an ideographical language, and a new ‘human phenome’, that writes, and speaks, and thinks, a complex unity of quantitative and qualitative, a ‘quanto-qualitative’ and, equally, a ‘qualo-quantitative’ universal language, and universal algebra, founded in the «aufheben» operation, and, thus, a dialectical «characteristica universalis».”

'Seldonian Dialectics’ -- 20 Images.

 


 

 

Seldonian Dialectics -- 20 Images.


 

Dear Reader,


The twenty text-images posted below offer you a summary of the essence of what we call Seldonian Dialectics.

 

We call this historic breakthrough within the long history of dialectic The Seldonian Dialectic. 

 

Seldon himself would prefer that we not apply his name to this breakthrough, as he does not want implied any “arrogant” claim that this achievement is his alone, and would prefer that we name it simplyThe F.E.D. Dialectic.

 

However, on this one matter, Seldon has been outvoted in the F.E.D. General Council.
