      Neoplatonism Group Participants,

      A new book has just been released by Foundation Encyclopedia Dialectica [F.E.D.], entitled --

      A Dialectical "Theory of Everything" -- Meta-Genealogies of the Universe and of Its Sub-Universes: A Graphical Manifesto.

      -- see:

      http://www.dialectics.org/dialectics/Welcome.html

      http://www.adventures-in-dialectics.org/Adventures-In-Dialectics/Adventures-In-Dialectics-entry.htm


      Texts preparatory to this book are available for free download via --

      http://www.dialectics.org/dialectics/Primer.html

      The core of F.E.D.'s discoveries seems to have arisen from two convergent immanent critiques, one of ancient Platonian dialectic, and the other of early-modern Hegelian dialectic.

      The immanent critique of the Platonian dialectic centers around that of Plato's three <<Arithmoi>> -- the <<Aritmoi Aisthetoi>>, the <<Arithmoi Monadikoi>> [also called the <<Arithmoi Mathematikoi>>], and -- especially -- the <<Arithmoi Eidetikoi>> [also called the <<Arithmoi Noetikoi>>], the latter being the <<Aritmetike'>> of <<Dialektike'>> proper.

      The key to their new developments seems to reside in their reconciliation of the marked discrepancy between the ancient Mediterranean / Alexandrian meaning of the Greek word <<Arithmoi>>, and the meaning of the modern English word "Number", which modern translators too often equate, thus inadvertently suppressing a whole world of differences between the ancient [e.g., the Hellenistic and ancient Alexandrian], and the modern world-views.

      I could be wrong on this one, of course, but I think it may accomplish, for Platonian, Hegelian, and [especially] Marxian Dialectic, +, at long last, what Boole did for Aristotelian syllogistic, +, formal logic with his 1847 "The Mathematical Analysis of Logic", and with his 1854 "Investigation of the Laws of Thought"!

      The book includes presentations of "meta-models" -- symbolic models that bridge across multiple mere models, encompassing the '''meta-evolutionary''' transitions between a whole series of predecessor systems and their successor systems, each of which systems has its own, "incommensurable" mere model -- with each of these "meta-models" rendered in three distinct ways: (1) textually, (2) diagrammatically, and (3) "ideographically" [i.e., mathematically, using F.E.D.'s new, expanded "mathematics of dialectics"].



      Here's the text from the front and back "flaps" of the "dust cover" jacket [modified for this list's typography] --

      "A Dialectical Theory of Everything — Meta-Genealogies of the Universe and of Its Sub-Universes: A Graphical Manifesto.


      Volume 0: Foundations [Edition 0 – Dec. 2010, from F.E.D. Press]

      This initial volume, Volume 0, sets forth the foundations of F.E.D.'s
      dialectical-mathematical "model of everything".

      Synthesizing ancient themes of dialectic, "autokinesis", and 'self-refluxivity' ['karmicity'], with modern themes of logical and set-theoretical paradox as "self-reflexivity", and of integro-differential equation "nonlinearity", evoked via both occidental and oriental sources from antiquity, and via modern developments in natural/social science, and in mathematics, this initial volume lays out foundations for a unified theory of dialectic.

      Foundations presented include a unified theory, by way of convergent immanent critiques, of the traditions of Platonian and Hegelian dialectic, and the consequent discovery, for the first time in human history, of a rich and versatile 'mathematics of dialectic'.

      This new 'mathematics of dialectic' is utilized to derive a seventeen-symbol equation, which models, qualitatively [via ontological categories], the dialectical self-evolutions, and 'self-meta-evolutions', of our "kosmos" as a totality, which also predicts a next major self-development of this "kosmos",
      and which summarizes the dialectical "theory of everything" that gives this work its title.

      A dialectical, 'ideo-ontological' categorial progression of systems of generally 'qualo-quantitative', dialectical arithmetics, are modeled, using the second system in that progression, its first explicitly dialectical system, starting from "Natural Numbers", or N, arithmetic, as purely-quantitative [implicitly, 'pre-vestigially <<aufheben>>-dialectical via its Peano successor-function] first system.

      The second system is a 'purely-qualitative' [purely ontological], "non-standard model" of "standard" N arithmetic [i.e., the first four, "first order" Peano Postulates hold for this system as well as for the N system], with a 'contra-Boolean' algebra, founded upon a hitherto-unnoticed, strong negation of Boole's "Fundamental Law of [formal-logical] Thought".

      The third system is a dialectical synthesis of the first and second systems, hence is a 'qualo-quantitative' arithmetic, combining the [implicitly ontological, or metrical] ideogramic quantifiers of the first, N arithmetic, with the [ontological] ideogramic qualifiers of the second arithmetic.


      Volume 1: Geneses [forthcoming, from F.E.D. Press]

      Volume 1 recounts the genesis of the new dialectical mathematics in detail.


      Volume 2: Dialectical 'Meta-Models' of the 'Human Phenome' [forthcoming, from F.E.D. Press]

      Volume 2 presents 'psycho-historical dialectical meta-models' , expressed via the new dialectical mathematics, which zoom-in on human-social constructions, including a 'meta-model' of the genesis of written language, a 'meta-model' of the development of ancient Mediterranean philosophy, and a 'meta-model' of the development of the "standard" arithmetics, starting from the N arithmetic as "arche'".


      Volume 3: The Dialectic of Nature [forthcoming, from F.E.D. Press]

      Volume 3 explores 'self-meta-evolutions' of human society, modeled via the new dialectical mathematics, as processes of later natural history, including those of the human-social relations, and of the human-social forces, of human-societal self-reproduction.

      It also addresses the parallel development of related human thought-modes, including an historical-dialectical mathematical 'meta-model' of the 'dialectic of the dialectic itself', as well as detailing the development of the "Theory of Everything", "Dialectic of Nature Equation" 'meta-model' of the <<kosmos>> as a whole."

        FYI: The first of the promised "Postlude Letters" -- an excerpt from the new book on the F.E.D. "Dialectical Meta-Numbers", and on their "contra-Boolean algebra", used to formulate the new 17-symbol "Theory of Everything Equation" Cosmos-History "Meta-Model" -- is now available for free download via --

        F.E.D.'s new "mathematics of dialectics" was also used to derive the "Equitism" model of the new social relations of production forming the social self-reproductive foundation of a political-economic democratic Social Republic as the successor system to capitalism --

              Oh my. I hadn't even looked at this, but now that I have gone to the provided links, I see that "The Foundation" mentioned there clearly does refer - facetiously, I presume! - to the Foundation of Isaac Asimov's great works of science fiction set in the distant future. I think this must be so, because there is mention the also of a "Terminous, California"! Well, Terminus is the planet in his fiction where the Foundation, well, the openly operating one (!), was founded in advance of the coming collapse of the Galactic Empire foreseen by Hari Seldon, one of Asimov's main characters...but I think perhaps some of what is there is reference - fan fiction? - to Seldon's science of psychohistory perhaps. The study of prediction of social events on a global, or in his case, galactic scale. Not a crazy idea in itself, to be honest, if perhaps not yet soluble. Asimov was most gifted, and probably my favorite science fiction writer of all, though Arthur C. Clarke - a lovely man I was by the waw fortunate enough to meet, although briefly, when I was a freshman in college - is awfully good too.

              Here's a link, completely NOTHING to do of course with this group:

              http://asimov.wikia.com/wiki/Terminus

              Yes, it's a spoof, I would say.

              So it has been awfully quiet here lately. I have been meaning to post something about the new Loeb of Macrobius, so maybe I should give that some thought now.

              Otherwise, horror vacui leads to stuff like this slipping, unfortunately?!?

                      Neoplatonism Group Participants,

                      Dear Dennis,

                      I think that you are correct about F.E.D.'s allusions to the Asimov Foundation saga.

                      However, I see no logic in your "inference" that they are spoofing.

                      They seem as serious as can be to me -- the allusions to the Asimov series are a WARNING about what they foresee as an impending "New, and, this time, likely Final DARK AGE" for OUR present global civilization, unless we collectively act so as to actualize a "Global Renaissance".

                      The axioms of their first <<Arithmoi Eidetikoi>> arithmetic are also quite serious -- and rather new-ground-breaking, to say the least --

                      The general introduction to their work is a veritable model of "connecting dots" psycho-historically -- such as between the Ancient Mediterranean world view and the "Modern" --

                      Also, I think -- based upon actually studying their work -- that you are in need of revising your assessment of the feasibility of "psycho-history" --

                      "Not a crazy idea in itself, to be honest, if perhaps not yet soluble."

                      -- because, I think, they have achieved a large part of it, even using just their simplest, most abstract <<Arithmoi Eidetikoi>> arithmetic.
                      There is a POTENTIALLY infinite progression of more complex, more concrete 'meta-dynamical' <<Arithmoi Eidetikoi>> arithmetics that follow from that first arithmetic, generated algorithmically by one of their "Dyadic Seldon Function" equation-models, which uses just that first arithmetic, per its axioms, to generate all of the others, and which I will try to render -- despite typological limitations -- here:

                      |-|-|
                      |-|-|(t) = < [1/V]N >^(2^t)


                      See, for example --

I hadn't even looked at this, but now that I have gone to the provided links, I see that "The Foundation" mentioned there clearly does refer - facetiously, I presume! - to the Foundation of Isaac Asimov's great works of science fiction set in the distant future. I think this must be so, because there is mention the also of a "Terminous, California"! Well, Terminus is the planet in his fiction where the Foundation, well, the openly operating one (!), was founded in advance of the coming collapse of the Galactic Empire foreseen by Hari Seldon, one of Asimov's main characters...but I think perhaps some of what is there is reference - fan fiction? - to Seldon's science of psychohistory perhaps. The study of prediction of social events on a global, or in his case, galactic scale. Not a crazy idea in itself, to be honest, if perhaps not yet soluble. Asimov was most gifted, and probably my favorite science fiction writer of all, though Arthur C. Clarke - a lovely man I was by the waw fortunate enough to meet, although briefly, when I was a freshman in college - is awfully good too.

                    • Miguel
                      Neoplatonism Group Participants, Dear Kathryn, I think you are insightful in detecting a certain ironic humor in the F.E.D. material, but, from my study of it,
                      Message 10 of 29 , May 3 10:47 PM

                        Neoplatonism Group Participants,

                        Dear Kathryn,

                        I think you are insightful in detecting a certain ironic humor in the F.E.D. material, but, from my study of it, I can only conclude that their message -- their WARNING -- and their recommended ways of averting the impending "New Dark Age" that they foresee, are quite serious.

                        Regards,

                        Miguel

"Dialectical Meta-Numbers", and on their "contra-Boolean algebra", used to formulate the new 17-symbol, multi-epochal "Theory of Everything Equation", a Cosmos-History "Meta-Model", formulating a "Dialectic of Nature as a whole", and also used to express their versions of multi-epochal "Psycho-Historical Equations", including predictions of future epochs for both -- is now available for free download via --

                          F.E.D.'s new "Mathematics of Psycho-Historical Dialectics" was also used to derive the "Equitism" / "Generalized Equity" / "Political-Economic Democracy" model of the societal self-reproductive foundation of the successor system to the present, terminal, suicidal, capital-relation-based socio-politico-economic system, which, without such replacement, will, per F.E.D., soon result in a new, and, this time, likely FINAL Global DARK AGE --

                            FYI: The SECOND of the promised "Postlude Letters" on the new convergent immanent critiques of Platonian <<Arithmoi Eidetikoi>> dialectic, and of Hegelian dialectic -- an excerpt from the new book on the F.E.D. "Dialectical Meta-Numbers", and on their "contra-Boolean algebra", and "Non-Standard Model of the "Natural" Numbers", used to formulate the new 17-symbol "Theory of Everything Equation", a multi-epochal Cosmos-History "Meta-Model", describing the "Self-Meta-Evolutions" [or "Ontological Self-Revolutions"] of Nature as a totality, and also used to express their versions of the multi-epochal "Psycho-Historical Equations", including predictions of the ontological content of the next epochs in both cases -- is now available for free download via --

And, by the way, did Asimov, whom I admire greatly as a writer and read first when I was only eleven years old, the whole first trilogy in fact, did he have Seldon also accommodate such feedback coming from those who are themselves aware via psycho-history itself what the future holds, and how then that foreknowledge itself feeding back would effect that very future?!? - the possibility of psycho-history, well, I guess I may be stuck there with a much more fundamental and non-mathematical question, how does the mind understand itself, if indeed to do so would be just like the lighthouse beacon trying to see its own light?

                                Dear Miguel,

                                Thank you for this sincere reply. Since I don't want any harm to come to myself or family, I will act on your warning here. However, specifics of the "FED"s "recommended ways of averting the impending" danger are not crystal clear to me.

                                If you will help me out with specifics I would be most grateful. I am assuming that it would please the "FED"s if I were to: 1) Retract my De Magia naturali book proposal with RSA; 2) Retract the conference proposal; 3) Revise my ESSWE website profile, deleting references to my work on the De Magia; 4) Retract my Krotona class proposals on Esotericism; 5) Revise my Academia.edu page by deleting work on and references to the De Magia, since it may still be verbotten by The Rulers of Darkness.

                                Please advise today if possible, since I've already had one of the Krotona leaders say this to me, "Yeah, I'll see you when you get out of jail."

                                Neoplatonism Group Participants,

                                Dear Kathryn,

                                I think you are insightful in detecting a certain ironic humor in the F.E.D. material, but, from my study of it, I can only conclude that their message -- their WARNING -- and their recommended ways of averting the impending "New Dark Age" that they foresee, are quite serious.

                                Regards,

                                Miguel

                                  Washington, D. C., 22-24 March 2012







                                  Women and Exile



                                  Organizers: Julie Campbell, Anne Larsen, and Diana Robin



                                  We would like to propose a series of panels on Women and Exile in the early modern period.



                                  Numerous early modern women from a variety of classes experienced exile, whether religious, political, voluntary, or involuntary. Noble and royal women were married into foreign families and sent to foreign courts. Women caught in the religio-political conflicts of the period sought refuge in foreign places deemed safe or were forcibly sent to those places. Courts and convents offered sanctuary for some and imprisonment for others. Family members were separated by incidents of exile of parents, children, siblings. What did exile mean for those left behind and those exiled? In their letters, poetry, dialogues, plays, or novels, women expressed their experience of exile.



                                  We are interested in papers that explore any aspect of these notions regarding women and exile in the early modern period.



                                  Please send abstracts of no more than 150 words and a one-page c.v. by May 25, 2010, by email attachment, to each of the following:

                                  Dear Miguel,

                                  Thank you for this sincere reply. Since I don't want any harm to come to myself or family, I will act on your warning here. However, specifics of the "FED"s "recommended ways of averting the impending" danger are not crystal clear to me.

                                  If you will help me out with specifics I would be most grateful. I am assuming that it would please the "FED"s if I were to: 1) Retract my De Magia naturali book proposal with RSA; 2) Retract the conference proposal; 3) Revise my ESSWE website profile, deleting references to my work on the De Magia; 4) Retract my Krotona class proposals on Esotericism; 5) Revise my Academia.edu page by deleting work on and references to the De Magia, since it may still be verbotten by The Rulers of Darkness.

                                  Please advise today if possible, since I've already had one of the Krotona leaders say this to me, "Yeah, I'll see you when you get out of jail."

                                  Many Blessings,

                                  Kathryn

                                  Dear Kathryn,

                                  I think you are insightful in detecting a certain ironic humor in the F.E.D. material, but, from my study of it, I can only conclude that their message -- their WARNING -- and their recommended ways of averting the impending "New Dark Age" that they foresee, are quite serious.

                                  Regards,

                                  Miguel

                                    Dialectical Design of a Constitution for Human Liberation --

                                    Neoplatonism Group Participants,

                                    Dear Kathryn,

                                    For the record, I do not concur with any of your suggestions for self-censorship, and do, on the contrary, counsel courage!

                                    Our cowardice will only embolden the core plutocracy, and encourage them to accelerate their recrudescent "eugenics" plans for global "humanocide", already underway today in "stealth" mode.

                                    One thing you might consider doing, would be to fight for the implementation of following constitutional amendment, designed to break the power of that humanocidal plutocracy, and to awaken the self-powers of the broader populace:

                                    The Equitist Advocacy group has just published -- circa the May 5th, 2011 anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx [this timing is probably no accident!] -- a detailed NON-"New-Dark-Ages" solution to the "Hell-On-Earth" horrors that are now diarrhoeally deluging globally, before our traumatized eyes: the totalitarian, "HUMANOCIDAL" self-degeneration of the global capitalist system.

                                    An interesting aspect of this proposed solution is that it was apparently derived via the Equitist Advocacy group's "special solution" of the F.E.D. "Psycho-Historical Dialectical Equations" for the meaning of the "Self-Reflexive Function" of the Capitalist System, and for the new "social relations of production ontology" which that "Self-Reflexion" would be expected to "irrupt".

                                    That is, the Equitists apparently solved for the meaning of the self-transcending self-operation of the "Capital-relation" [Marx] upon itself, in the F.E.D. Model of the Meta-Evolution of the Human-Social Relations of Human-Social Relations Self-Re-Production, the "Delta-K" term, clarified by a "simultaneous solution" for the probable meaning of the "Delta-h" term of the h-squared component in the F.E.D. "Dialectical Theory of Everything", "Dialectic of Nature as Totality" Equation-Model of the Universe.

                                    For more on this solution of the Psycho-Historical Dialectical Equations, see the fourth of the "[RE-]SOURCE" links listed below, and --

                                    -- pages B-24+.


                                    The text of the Equitists' latest, most-detailed specification of their proposed solution is reproduced below.

                                    It aims, to my reading, to explicate -- on the basis of the dialectical human social science discoveries of Karl Marx -- the solution to "The Dialectic of Capital", i.e., to the self-destructive phase of the "Capital-relation" as predominate social relation of human-society-production, in its "real subsumption" of all past, previously-elaborated human social relations of production.

                                    It aims, to my reading, to describe a model solution to what the Equitists see as the core "internal contradiction", or "self-contradiction", of capital/capitalism/the Capital-relation.

                                    Using the '#' sign -- the doubly-slashed, doubly-negated equals sign -- as a sign for dialectical self-contradiction, that core self-contradiction, or "self-duality", of capital can be expressed as:

                                    'Self-Expanding Value # Self-Contracting Value'.


                                    Their "Citizen Stewardship Equity Rights" version of Marxian "Associationism", that is, of "Association(s) of Producers" as the core of the new, leading, "democratic communist" human-social relation of production, with its "real subsumption" of the Capital-relation, as of the present survivals of all past, previously-elaborated human-social relations of production, is, to my reading, designed to facilitate the universal innovative entrepreneurship of self-organized, democratically self-governing collectives of citizens, as potential "collective self-employers".

                                    It proposes to do so by supplying what has heretofore been missing for the manifestation of that innovative entrepreneurship to become broadly possible, namely, collective access to collective-ends-directed means of social production for the vast majority, i.e., for we, the "modern proletarians" [who do not own any -- or any substantial -- capital with which we might otherwise buy access to such means of production], the supply of which would render us no longer "proletarians".

                                    I think that the overall context of that solution-component -- the Citizen Stewardship Equity social relation of production -- owes a lot to David Schweickart's books "Against Capitalism", and "After Capitalism".

                                    Their "Democratic Ecological Management" solution-component, i.e., their "Citizen Externality Equity Rights" component, set out in Section 2, below, is a solution-approach that I have never encountered the like of anywhere else.

                                    Their "Citizen Birthright Equity Rights" solution-component, set out in Section 4, below, actualizes what the capitalist state can only pay lip service to, and, then, only some of the time [and it now seems, no longer ever again]: that governments should be constituted for the benefit of all citizens, not just for profit and power benefits to a tiny minority of citizens who, in late capitalism, own the vast preponderance of capital property, to the acceleratedly deepening detriment of all other citizens; the increasingly deadly detriment of the vast majority.

                                    Why should government taxes, that are, predominantly, deductions from workers' wages and salaries [given the tax loopholes for big capitalist corporations, engineered by legislators who are nothing but those corporations' abject whores], go mainly to corporate welfare, to "defense" spending -- i.e., to rapacious invasions of other peoples' countries, and to deliberate "collateral damage" stealth genocides against their citizens, thus recruiting more enemies who wish to avenge their tortured, raped, and murdered relatives, thereby "justifying" keeping these unnecessary, contrived wars going -- and to bailouts of the big corporations who engineer "Designer Depressions", leaving the worker-taxpayers holding the vast debts that these corporations create in that process, while anything that may ever benefit the vast majority of working families -- Medicare, Social Security, Education grants, etc. -- are all repealed "because" those 'governmentized' corporate debts have left too little tax revenues [stolen wages] for anything else?

                                    The Equitists apparently believe that benefits to each and every citizen, equitably administered by new, popularly controlled governmental institutions, e.g., starting with their Citizen Birthright Equity Social Trust Funds -- should have first priority.

                                    I find a lot to quibble with in the details of their solution-text, below, but its very capability to "out" such quibbles may be one of its greatest services.

                                    Section 1. [Stockholder Equity Rights and Constraints] All Enterprises under Joint-Stock ownership, and operating within the sovereign territory of the United States of America, shall be operated in accord with the principles of Capital Equity and of Stockholder Democracy.

                                    Sub-Section 1.a [Stockholder Referenda] Contributors of money, or of other capital property, for the purchase of shares of the common stock of a Joint-Stock Enterprise, shall have the constitutional right to nominate, elect, and recall/replace Directors to the Board of Directors of that Enterprise, to promulgate and to vote upon owner resolutions, and to vote upon other important matters, including compensation, for Directors, and for Senior Management, and donations of Enterprise funds to political candidates, and/or to political causes, on the basis of one vote per share of common stock owned. All such matters shall be decided by majority vote of the owners of record of the common stock, except for political donations. Motions for the latter shall require at least a three-quarters favorable majority vote of the owners of record to carry. The results of such owner referenda shall be binding upon Enterprise Management, who shall be civilly and criminally liable for violations thereof.

                                    Sub-Section 1.b [Tribunals for Stockholder Equity] Congress shall provide, by statute, for a system of federal circuit courts, the Tribunals for Stockholder Equity. The specific function of these Tribunals shall be with regard to Stockholder Equity Rights and Constraints: to adjudicate actions, brought by one or more Citizens, alleging that the Management, or one or more Directors, of a Joint Stock Enterprise have acted in violation of Stockholder Equity Rights and Constraints.

                                    Sub-Section 1.c [Countervailing Citizen Rights] Citizens are empowered, by constitutional right, hereby granted, to organize and enact, using their own resources, Boycotts of the products and/or of the services offered for sale by Joint Stock Enterprises that said Citizens deem to have intervened in the Legislative, and/or Judicial, and/or Executive, and/or Economic-Democratic processes of the United States of America as a whole, or in that of any Region, State, County, or Municipality thereof, in a manner or manners that they, in their own individual, and/or collective, judgment, deem to be inimical to the General Welfare.

                                    Section 2. [Citizen Externality Equity Rights and Constraints] Citizens who suffer the infliction of External Costs upon themselves, in their places of residence, by a local operating unit of an Enterprise, shall acquire thereby Externality Equity in said Enterprise, as a Collective Property, Social Property constitutional Right.

                                    Sub-Section 2.a [Election and Recall/Replacement of Public Directors] This Property Right shall be exercised as a voting right in the nomination, annual election, and potential recall/replacement, of Public Directors, to an Enterprise Board of Public Directors, constituted as a Second House of the co-management committee of each such local operating unit. Each local operating unit Public Director nominee, to be nominated, must reside in the geographical area of the Electorate of that unit, and, to be elected, must receive a majority of the votes of the Electorate for that unit. The apportionment of Public Board Electorate geographical areas, and the determination of the number of Citizens of local operating unit Electorates to be represented per Public Director, shall be re-determined annually by majority vote of the Citizen-elected County legislative body within whose jurisdiction the local operating units reside. Public Boards shall consist of odd numbers of Public Directors to preclude tie votes. Each Public Board Director shall be subject to special elections for Recall/Replacement, by petition of 5% or greater of their Electorate, and shall be replaced if a majority of their voting Electorate so votes, by the Replacement Candidate receiving the largest plurality of votes.

The Second House shall negotiate with the First House thereof for the mitigation of the External Cost burdens generated by that unit, for the optimization of any External Benefits generated by that unit, and regarding the rate of taxation for the External Cost generation still permitted to that unit. The Negotiating Position(s) of each Public Board shall be framed and modified by that Board by majority vote of its Directors.

                                    Sub-Section 2.c [Funding of Public Board Operations] The Permitted-Externalities Taxes shall, in part, fund the special operations of their Public Board regarding the remediation of those specific External Costs. General operations of Public Boards shall be funded by a Potential External Costs Tax, paid by each Enterprise local operating unit, levied to offset the public hazard of Potential External Costs Production created by its existence. Rates of local operating units Potential External Costs taxation shall be re-determined annually by majority vote of the Citizens-elected County legislative body in which the local operating units reside, along with rules for External Cost taxes assessment and Tax Credit determination for External Benefits generated by said local operating units. Monthly salary compensation of Public Directors from these funds shall be set by the Citizen-elected legislative body of the County in which the Electorates of said Public Directors reside.

The specific function of these courts shall be to adjudicate cases where Externality Production and/or Externality Taxation negotiations between the two Houses of the co-management committee of a local operating unit have deadlocked. Such cases may be brought by the First House of that co-management committee, by its Second House, or by both Houses together.

Each Association of Public Directors shall consist of an odd number of Association Directors, to preclude deadlocks due to tie votes.

                                    Sub-Section 3.c [Policy Resolution Compliance] Policy Resolutions adopted by majority vote of Municipal, County, State, Regional, National, Continental, and/or Global Public Directors Associations shall be offered to all included lower-scale Associations of Public Directors, and to all included local operating unit Boards of Public Directors, on a non-binding, advisory basis, with respect to actions in response required of included Associations and Boards of Public Directors. Compliance or non-compliance with Policy Resolutions of a higher scale of Association, by act of a lower scale of Association, or by act of a local operating unit Public Board of Directors, shall be on a voluntary basis, determined by majority vote of said Association, or Board, of Public Directors.

                                    Sub-Section 3.d [Funding of Association Operations] Operating expenses of each Association of Public Directors shall be funded by dues paid by all Public Boards of Directors included in the geographical unit represented by that Association, in an amount re-determined annually by majority vote of all included Public Board Directors.

[Citizen Birthright Equity Rights and Constraints] Congress shall endow, for every Citizen child born from the date of ratification of this Amendment, a lifetime Social Trust Fund, equal, in initial real value, to all other such individual Citizen Birthright Equity Social Trust Funds, sufficient to support, in whole, or, at least, in then-affordable part, as determined, and as re-determined annually, by Congress, the expected lifetime healthcare, education, work-life career, unemployment insurance, home purchase, retirement pension, and other social-baseline life necessities of that Citizen, and such that part of those funds, as allotted by Congress, may be applied, by court order, to pay reparations in the event of one or more criminal convictions of that Citizen.

                                    Sub-Section 4.a [Social Trust Funds: Abuse/Moral Hazard Mitigation] Each Citizen's disposition rights over the Social Trust Fund assigned to that Citizen shall be constrained so as to militate against its misuse. Congress shall enact statutes governing the disposition of Social Trust Fund assets. The national Electorate shall elect, to four year terms, limited to three consecutive terms, in elections coinciding with Presidential elections, eleven Commissioners to a national Commission for Citizen Birthright Equity, which shall promulgate, by majority vote, rules and regulations for the exercise of Citizen Birthright Equity, and which shall manage a national Social Trust Funds Administration. Said rules and regulations shall be administered by said Social Trust Fund Administration, whose operations shall be funded by Congress. Each Commissioner shall be subject to special elections for Recall/Replacement, by petition of 1% or greater of the national Electorate, and shall be replaced if a majority of the Citizens voting so vote, by the Replacement Candidate receiving the largest plurality of votes. The Citizen Birthright Equity Social Trust Fund of each Citizen so endowed shall remain Social Property unless or until its assets pass into the Personal Property of that Citizen through their lawful expenditure.

                                    Sub-Section 4.b [Social Trust Funds: Sources of Funding] Citizen Birthright Equity Social Trust Funds shall be funded, in part, by a portion of the proceeds of the Citizen Stewardship Equity Social Property Rents, paid for the usufruct of Production Plant and Equipment Social Property held in Stewardship by Citizen Stewardship Equity Cooperative Enterprises of all kinds, as well as by general Federal tax revenues, as budgeted annually by majority vote of the Congress.

                                    Sub-Section 4.c [Tribunals for Birthright Equity] Congress shall provide, by statute, for a system of federal circuit courts, the Tribunals for Birthright Equity. The specific function of these courts shall be to adjudicate actions brought, by any Citizen, or Citizens-class, disputing a decision or decisions regarding requested disposition of Citizen Birthright Equity Social Trust Fund assets, by the Social Trust Funds Administration.

                                    Section 5. [Citizen Stewardship Equity Rights and Constraints] Each adult Citizen is hereby empowered with a Citizen Stewardship Equity constitutional Right to participate in initiating the formation of, and in the democratic self-governance of, Associations of Producers, in the form of Qualified Citizen Stewardship Equity Cooperative Enterprises, whose Boards of Directors, and whose local operating unit co-management committee First Houses (if any), shall be nominated, elected, and potentially recalled and replaced, by majority vote of their Citizen Steward Members, on a one Citizen, one vote basis.

                                    Sub-Section 5.a [Citizen Stewardship Equity Cooperatives: Compensation of Citizen Stewards] Each Citizen Steward member of such a Qualified Cooperative Enterprise shall have the right to contingent annual compensation in the form of an equal share in the annual net profits (if any) of that Cooperative Enterprise, and also to job-performance-based monthly, semi-monthly, or weekly compensation, per an hourly rate set by the Enterprise Board of Directors, and not necessarily equal in value to that of other Citizen Steward Members who perform under different job categories.

                                    Sub-Section 5.b [Citizen Stewardship Equity Cooperatives: Rules of Democratic
                                    Self-Governance] The Board of Directors of each Qualified Citizen Stewardship Equity Cooperative Enterprise, and the First Houses of each of its local operating unit co-management committees (if any), shall consist of odd numbers of voting members, to avert tie votes. The electoral base for the Board of Directors shall consist of the totality of the Citizen Steward Members of the Cooperative Enterprise as a whole, and, for the First House of the co-management committee of each local operating unit (if more than one such exists), shall consist of all of the Citizen Steward Members who regularly perform full-time work in that local operating unit. Candidate Board Directors, and candidate co-management committee First House voting members, shall be nominated by the Citizen Stewards forming their respective electoral bases, from among those respective electoral bases. Such voting Members, including the Enterprise General Manager, and the local operating unit General Manager (if any), who shall chair their respective Boards or co-management committees, respectively, shall be elected by said electoral base on a one Citizen Steward Member, one vote basis, by majority vote of the respective electoral base Citizen Steward Members, for each candidate voting Member, to the limit of the number of voting members of the governing body to be so elected. Each elected Board Member, or First House co-management committee voting Member, shall be subject to special elections for Recall/Replacement, by petition of 5% of their electoral base Citizen Steward Members, and replaced if a majority of that electoral base voting so votes, by the Replacement Candidate receiving the largest plurality of votes. Congress shall, by statute, set forth the detailed rules for Citizen Stewardship Equity Cooperative Enterprise democratic Self-Governance.

                                    Sub-Section 5.c [Citizen Allocational Equity Rights Regarding Social Property Assets] The Office shall allocate financial assets Social Property to each Qualified Social Bank Citizen Stewardship Equity Cooperative Enterprise in accord with an equal per capita availability of such Social Property financial assets by State, pursuant to the principle of Citizen Allocational Equity. If unequal per capita allocations are permitted by majority vote in a referendum of all voting-qualified Citizens of the United States of America, then such allocations shall be permitted only on a temporary and remedial basis, e.g., for the purpose of the remediation of the social consequences of past allocational inequities. The terminal date of any referendum-stipulated unequal geographical, per capita allocation of Social Property asset-values shall be stipulated in the terms of any such referendum presented to the voters. That terminal date shall be no later than twenty years from the date of the last day of the voting on that referendum. The principle of Citizen Allocational Equity includes the constitutional Right, established hereby, for collectives of Citizens, organized as candidate Citizen Stewardship Equity Producers' Cooperative Enterprises, or as candidate Citizen Stewardship Equity Social Bank Cooperative Enterprises (given that their By-Laws and business launch plans/expansion plans meet Congressional, statutory criteria, and meet Office regulatory criteria) to be granted access to the quantities of Social Property financial assets requisite to launch, or to expand, their operations. Any Citizen collective, which is candidate for Citizen Stewardship Equity Cooperative Enterprise formation, shall have standing to bring suit in the Tribunals of Allocational Equity against one or more Social Bank, and/or against the Office of the Custodian of Social Property, if a majority of its Members deem that either or both have violated the constitutional Rights established for it by this Section. The principle of Citizen Allocational Equity also includes prohibition of operation of any Enterprise in any branch of product/service supply as State Property, if any mixture of four or more Citizen Collectives, Qualified for provision of Social Property to operate in that branch by one or more Social Banks, or Joint-Stock Ventures, are extant as potential mutually competing Citizen Stewardship Equity and/or Joint Stock Enterprises.

                                    Sub-Section 5.d [Tribunals for Stewardship and Allocational Equity] Congress shall provide, by statute, for a system of federal circuit courts, the Tribunals for Stewardship and Allocational Equity. The specific function of these Tribunals with respect to upholding Citizen Stewardship Equity Rights shall be to adjudicate legal actions alleging violation of said Rights by any Actionable Party. The specific function of these Tribunals with respect to upholding Citizen Allocational Equity Rights shall be to adjudicate legal actions brought by one or more Citizens alleging violation of said Rights by one or more Social Banks, and/or by the Office of the Custodian of Social Property.

                                      Dialectical Design of a Constitution for Human Liberation --

                                      Neoplatonism Group Participants,

                                      Dear Kathryn,

                                      For the record, I do not concur with any of your suggestions for self-censorship, and do, on the contrary, counsel courage!

                                      Our cowardice will only embolden the core plutocracy, and encourage them to accelerate their recrudescent "eugenics" plans for global "humanocide", already underway today in "stealth" mode.

                                      One thing you might consider doing, would be to fight for the implementation of following constitutional amendment, designed to break the power of that humanocidal plutocracy, and to awaken the self-powers of the broader populace:

                                      The Equitist Advocacy group has just published -- circa the May 5th, 2011 anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx [this timing is probably no accident!] -- a detailed NON-"New-Dark-Ages" solution to the "Hell-On-Earth" horrors that are now diarrhoeally deluging globally, before our traumatized eyes: the totalitarian, "HUMANOCIDAL" self-degeneration of the global capitalist system.

                                      An interesting aspect of this proposed solution is that it was apparently derived via the Equitist Advocacy group's "special solution" of the F.E.D. "Psycho-Historical Dialectical Equations" for the meaning of the "Self-Reflexive Function" of the Capitalist System, and for the new "social relations of production ontology" which that "Self-Reflexion" would be expected to "irrupt".

                                      That is, the Equitists apparently solved for the meaning of the self-transcending self-operation of the "Capital-relation" [Marx] upon itself, in the F.E.D. Model of the Meta-Evolution of the Human-Social Relations of Human-Social Relations Self-Re-Production, the "Delta-K" term, clarified by a "simultaneous solution" for the probable meaning of the "Delta-h" term of the h-squared component in the F.E.D. "Dialectical Theory of Everything", "Dialectic of Nature as Totality" Equation-Model of the Universe.

                                      For more on this solution of the Psycho-Historical Dialectical Equations, see the fourth of the "[RE-]SOURCE" links listed below, and --

                                      -- pages B-24+.

                                      The text of the Equitists' latest, most-detailed specification of their proposed solution is reproduced below.

                                      It aims, to my reading, to explicate -- on the basis of the dialectical human social science discoveries of Karl Marx -- the solution to "The Dialectic of Capital", i.e., to the self-destructive phase of the "Capital-relation" as predominate social relation of human-society-production, in its "real subsumption" of all past, previously-elaborated human social relations of production.

                                      It aims, to my reading, to describe a model solution to what the Equitists see as the core "internal contradiction", or "self-contradiction", of capital/capitalism/the Capital-relation.

                                      Using the '#' sign -- the doubly-slashed, doubly-negated equals sign -- as a sign for dialectical self-contradiction, that core self-contradiction, or "self-duality", of capital can be expressed as:

                                      'Self-Expanding Value # Self-Contracting Value'.

                                      Their "Citizen Stewardship Equity Rights" version of Marxian "Associationism", that is, of "Association(s) of Producers" as the core of the new, leading, "democratic communist" human-social relation of production, with its "real subsumption" of the Capital-relation, as of the present survivals of all past, previously-elaborated human-social relations of production, is, to my reading, designed to facilitate the universal innovative entrepreneurship of self-organized, democratically self-governing collectives of citizens, as potential "collective self-employers".

                                      It proposes to do so by supplying what has heretofore been missing for the manifestation of that innovative entrepreneurship to become broadly possible, namely, collective access to collective-ends-directed means of social production for the vast majority, i.e., for we, the "modern proletarians" [who do not own any -- or any substantial -- capital with which we might otherwise buy access to such means of production], the supply of which would render us no longer "proletarians".

                                      I think that the overall context of that solution-component -- the Citizen Stewardship Equity social relation of production -- owes a lot to David Schweickart's books "Against Capitalism", and "After Capitalism".

                                      Their "Democratic Ecological Management" solution-component, i.e., their "Citizen Externality Equity Rights" component, set out in Section 2, below, is a solution-approach that I have never encountered the like of anywhere else.

                                      Their "Citizen Birthright Equity Rights" solution-component, set out in Section 4, below, actualizes what the capitalist state can only pay lip service to, and, then, only some of the time [and it now seems, no longer ever again]: that governments should be constituted for the benefit of all citizens, not just for profit and power benefits to a tiny minority of citizens who, in late capitalism, own the vast preponderance of capital property, to the acceleratedly deepening detriment of all other citizens; the increasingly deadly detriment of the vast majority.

                                      Why should government taxes, that are, predominantly, deductions from workers' wages and salaries [given the tax loopholes for big capitalist corporations, engineered by legislators who are nothing but those corporations' abject whores], go mainly to corporate welfare, to "defense" spending -- i.e., to rapacious invasions of other peoples' countries, and to deliberate "collateral damage" stealth genocides against their citizens, thus recruiting more enemies who wish to avenge their tortured, raped, and murdered relatives, thereby "justifying" keeping these unnecessary, contrived wars going -- and to bailouts of the big corporations who engineer "Designer Depressions", leaving the worker-taxpayers holding the vast debts that these corporations create in that process, while anything that may ever benefit the vast majority of working families -- Medicare, Social Security, Education grants, etc. -- are all repealed "because" those 'governmentized' corporate debts have left too little tax revenues [stolen wages] for anything else?

                                      The Equitists apparently believe that benefits to each and every citizen, equitably administered by new, popularly controlled governmental institutions, e.g., starting with their Citizen Birthright Equity Social Trust Funds -- should have first priority.

                                      I find a lot to quibble with in the details of their solution-text, below, but its very capability to "out" such quibbles may be one of its greatest services.

                                      Draft #6, 05 May 2011:
                                      Constitutional Establishment of the Equitarian Reform

                                      Section 1. [Stockholder Equity Rights and Constraints] All Enterprises under Joint-Stock ownership, and operating within the sovereign territory of the United States of America, shall be operated in accord with the principles of Capital Equity and of Stockholder Democracy.

                                      Sub-Section 1.a [Stockholder Referenda] Contributors of money, or of other capital property, for the purchase of shares of the common stock of a Joint-Stock Enterprise, shall have the constitutional right to nominate, elect, and recall/replace Directors to the Board of Directors of that Enterprise, to promulgate and to vote upon owner resolutions, and to vote upon other important matters, including compensation, for Directors, and for Senior Management, and donations of Enterprise funds to political candidates, and/or to political causes, on the basis of one vote per share of common stock owned. All such matters shall be decided by majority vote of the owners of record of the common stock, except for political donations. Motions for the latter shall require at least a three-quarters favorable majority vote of the owners of record to carry. The results of such owner referenda shall be binding upon Enterprise Management, who shall be civilly and criminally liable for violations thereof.

                                      Sub-Section 1.b [Tribunals for Stockholder Equity] Congress shall provide, by statute, for a system of federal circuit courts, the Tribunals for Stockholder Equity. The specific function of these Tribunals shall be with regard to Stockholder Equity Rights and Constraints: to adjudicate actions, brought by one or more Citizens, alleging that the Management, or one or more Directors, of a Joint Stock Enterprise have acted in violation of Stockholder Equity Rights and Constraints.

                                      Sub-Section 1.c [Countervailing Citizen Rights] Citizens are empowered, by constitutional right, hereby granted, to organize and enact, using their own resources, Boycotts of the products and/or of the services offered for sale by Joint Stock Enterprises that said Citizens deem to have intervened in the Legislative, and/or Judicial, and/or Executive, and/or Economic-Democratic processes of the United States of America as a whole, or in that of any Region, State, County, or Municipality thereof, in a manner or manners that they, in their own individual, and/or collective, judgment, deem to be inimical to the General Welfare.

                                      Section 2. [Citizen Externality Equity Rights and Constraints] Citizens who suffer the infliction of External Costs upon themselves, in their places of residence, by a local operating unit of an Enterprise, shall acquire thereby Externality Equity in said Enterprise, as a Collective Property, Social Property constitutional Right.

                                      Sub-Section 2.a [Election and Recall/Replacement of Public Directors] This Property Right shall be exercised as a voting right in the nomination, annual election, and potential recall/replacement, of Public Directors, to an Enterprise Board of Public Directors, constituted as a Second House of the co-management committee of each such local operating unit. Each local operating unit Public Director nominee, to be nominated, must reside in the geographical area of the Electorate of that unit, and, to be elected, must receive a majority of the votes of the Electorate for that unit. The apportionment of Public Board Electorate geographical areas, and the determination of the number of Citizens of local operating unit Electorates to be represented per Public Director, shall be re-determined annually by majority vote of the Citizen-elected County legislative body within whose jurisdiction the local operating units reside. Public Boards shall consist of odd numbers of Public Directors to preclude tie votes. Each Public Board Director shall be subject to special elections for Recall/Replacement, by petition of 5% or greater of their Electorate, and shall be replaced if a majority of their voting Electorate so votes, by the Replacement Candidate receiving the largest plurality of votes.

                                      Sub-Section 2.b [Mitigation of External Costs and Optimization of External Benefits] Each co-management committee Second House is hereby constitutionally empowered to co-manage the Externalities Budget of the Annual Operating Plan of its Enterprise local operating unit, in mutual cooperation with the First House of that unit's co-management committee. The Second House shall negotiate with the First House thereof for the mitigation of the External Cost burdens generated by that unit, for the optimization of any External Benefits generated by that unit, and regarding the rate of taxation for the External Cost generation still permitted to that unit. The Negotiating Position(s) of each Public Board shall be framed and modified by that Board by majority vote of its Directors.

                                      Sub-Section 2.c [Funding of Public Board Operations] The Permitted-Externalities Taxes shall, in part, fund the special operations of their Public Board regarding the remediation of those specific External Costs. General operations of Public Boards shall be funded by a Potential External Costs Tax, paid by each Enterprise local operating unit, levied to offset the public hazard of Potential External Costs Production created by its existence. Rates of local operating units Potential External Costs taxation shall be re-determined annually by majority vote of the Citizens-elected County legislative body in which the local operating units reside, along with rules for External Cost taxes assessment and Tax Credit determination for External Benefits generated by said local operating units. Monthly salary compensation of Public Directors from these funds shall be set by the Citizen-elected legislative body of the County in which the Electorates of said Public Directors reside.

                                      Sub-Section 2.d [Externality Identification] Each Citizen member of the local Externalities Electorate of a given Public Board shall have plaintive standing to bring one or more complaints before that Board, alleging External Costs suffered by that Citizen individually, by a part of the Electorate to which that Citizen belongs, or by the entirety of the Electorate to which that Citizen belongs, and alleging that those External Costs are produced by one or more Enterprise local operating unit or units co-governed by that Public Board. Confirmation of said allegations by majority vote of that Public Board shall empower it to Negotiate with the First House of its co-management committee for that local operating unit, for preventive mitigation, or for remedial taxation, or for a combination of both, regarding so-confirmed External Costs Production.

                                      Sub-Section 2.e [Tribunals for Externality Equity] Congress shall provide, by statute, for a system of federal circuit courts, the Tribunals for Externality Equity. The specific function of these courts shall be to adjudicate cases where Externality Production and/or Externality Taxation negotiations between the two Houses of the co-management committee of a local operating unit have deadlocked.

I am assuming that it would please the "FED"s if I were to: 1) Retract my De Magia naturali book proposal with RSA; 2) Retract the conference proposal; 3) Revise my ESSWE website profile, deleting references to my work on the De Magia; 4) Retract my Krotona class proposals on Esotericism; 5) Revise my Academia.edu page by deleting work on and references to the De Magia, since it may still be verbotten by The Rulers of Darkness.

                                          As they doctors try to do, first do no harm, and so guard the gentle readers' ears at least, and inflict on them no such harmful prose as all that above?

                                          Yes! Please, do not, at least on these aging ears.

                                            Dear Goya,

                                            Based on what you wrote below, it appears to me that you are an ideological victim of the Parmenidean delusion, or, at best, of the mere "chaotic flux" interpretation of Heraclitus's river trope, unable to see or feel the ontological progress of the cosmos that Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, and even Hegel, so deftly documented, so that you have effectively substracted yourself from those capable of contributing to the betterment of the human lot.

                                            In mourning for the loss of your human[e] potential,

                                            Miguel

                                                Wow, that's one hell of an inference from a simple statement that your prose
                                                is unreadable. I guess I have also subtracted myself from those capable of

                                                disregard your audience. I simply didn't realize that having a preference
                                                for clarity and an ordered presentation of ideas could imply a condemnation
                                                of my character. I will henceforth seek out the worse possible compositions
                                                I can so I might edify myself. Thank you for sharing your great wisdom and

                                                    This group is for discussion of Neoplatonism - not Isaac Asimov, not Hegel except as relevant, or Teilhard de Chardin, not New Age this ot that. NEOPLATONISM.

                                                    There are plenty of forums for all those subjects online, but this is the ONLY one I know of online for this subject, so let's keep it taht way - hardly seems like asking that much,when the balance is already rather lacking, since it is the only one!

                                                    And we have been extraordinarily fortunate to have the participation of experts in this field, to a degree I have never seen in other such groups online. So of course that participation is in part predicated on not insulting any of them or anyone else, for that matter, as in the posting above!

                                                    Trust me, I value this group very much personally, and have seen or know of such groups ruined by this sort of thing, and the experts all flee.

                                                    NEOPLATONISM. That is the subject matter of this group.

                                                    Let me be crystal clear here. I will continue to fight this battle too, because I value this group that much.

                                                    The line has been drawn in the sand.

It is disappointing when the talk goes off subject or becomes unpleasant. This forum should hold to its focus on Neoplatonism and do so amiably.

                                                              Could someone in the group translate this for me? As far as I can understand it, this is Miguel's negative evaluation of another group member. Beyond that, I have no idea. Perhaps one needs a degree in philosophy, which I do not have, to appreciate that style of writing.

                                                              Those who enjoy Miguel's writing style might find that this helpful
