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."

Mildred Purse Proposes a Massive GOP-Cut

Mildred had a stiff Jack Daniels and chased it with Cuervo Gold when she heard the GOP Congress has passed yet another massive tax cut for the wealthy.  Below she speaks, following a salutary nap.


GOP
Well, um, OK. It is time for a massive GOP-cut. Send these odd and noxious people somewhere else. Allow Congress to be filled with sane and constructive human beings. Remove the stonewalling whippersnappers, cut them cold. Dis-elect them.  They are trying to wreck the economy and scare us. They are a national security risk. They make Nathan Hale look  patriotic. If you agree, please send this to the GOP. The address is above. A few millions of these ought to cool their jets.

This is why the issue is not who wins but partisanship per se

If partisanship is not roundly defeated at the polls
sufficient to chastise each member of Congress
and make each member compromise for the good of  the nation
then it will be on the head of these worthies if  our nation tanks
People will vote as they will vote but eighty percent or more will be voting
to end this unspeakable partisajn immature ill-performance

Mildred Purse Recommends Romney Court for Your Delectation

WATCH VIDEO AND TREMBLE>>>>>  Romney Court:

'via Blog this'


I didn't realize that young Mitt was sorry that Judge Bork was not on the High Court. If he was we would have support for the poll tax and the suppression of my gender. I can't imagine what it would be like to have Mitt Romney suppress my gender. I shudder to think. In any case I liked this video. It is rather hard on Judge Bork. But goldnabit he deserves it.

John Boehner - My Excellent Budget Cutting Menu

Republican Budget: John Boehner Says Bishops Miss Big Picture In Protesting GOP's Proposed Cuts: ""What's more of a concern to me is the fact that if we don't begin to make some decisions about getting our fiscal house in order, there won't be a safety net," Boehner said."

Begin with Defense. Go for a 50 percent cut. Keep the SEALS who do not chase skirts while on duty. Adopt lex talionis. That means instead of shock and awe, proportional response when attacked.

Proceed to loopholes. With fairness as the guide, trim or eliminate anything that is not fair.

Return when this is done for more instructions. Do you hear me John?

Mildred Purse is applying to be one of the Romney horses

The National Memo » Strange But True: Mitt Romney Picked The Music For His Horse’s Dance Competition: "It takes car elevator wealth to participate in the sport. “It runs thousands of dollars a month to maintain,” Braddick said in the same interview. “They have pretty much everything — a farrier, a chiropractor, a vet, a masseuse for the horses. Just like any professional athlete at that level.”"

It is clear that Mitt lives in a world far removed . I am allergic to horses. I kept clear of the stables as a child.  But now to be a Romney horse would be a remarkable step up, worth a lot of Claritin or whatever it is. At my beck and call, a masseuse, a chiropacter.  Think of it, at my age, learning to dance to music Mitt picks out himself. Now I always liked Gerald Ford because he did so little as president. Perhaps we could look to Mitt to keep up this tendency. After all he will still be needed for the horses. And if I get in, I'll be closer to him th…
