Dyadic relations are not reducible to the interpretant manifold

Manifolds Of Sense And Interpretation, Logic And Computation As Biophysics (or why logicians are rightly theoretical biophysicists too) - IASE:

"In 1904 Charles Sanders Peirce (1839-1914) objected to the “Russellization” of logic on the basis that logical expressions consisting of dyadic relations are not reducible to the interpretant manifold, to the manifest non-local quality of our ongoing experience in bringing the distribution and variety of sense to actionable unity, observing that beyond the immediate composition of cause and effect statements this action is necessarily deferred to the logician. Mechanical inference from dyadic relations neglects something immediate and deferred that is actionable.

"The illusive mechanics that Peirce suggests is by definition the mechanics of biophysics, describing how sense is characterized by the structures involved and how the biophysical structure is moved from apprehension to action."

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis
The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
