Charles Sanders Peirce - His "remarkable theorem" regarding triadic relations

This remarkable text is drawn from Joseph Brent,  Charles Sanders Peirce: A Life  Blomington and Indianapolis 1993 Page 331

"There are only three fundamental kinds of relations: monadic, dyadic and triadic; ...  by combining triads, all relations greater than the number  three can be generated; and ... all those of a greater number than three can be reduced to triads. Since, in addition,  triads cannot be reduced to dyads, nor dyads to monads, monads, dyads and triads constitute the fundamental categories of relations. At the same time, triads are made up of dyads and monads, and dyads of monads. Hence, in logical order, monads are first, dyads second, and triads third., which gives a second group of relations: first, second, and third. Hypostatic abstraction provides a third group of relations: firstness, secondness, and thirdness, which contain first second and third, which in turn contain monads, dyads, and triads.

We do not need to be in this or that city. With a bit of brain power we could create the cells of urban living anywhere at all.

So go to the states where Romney won. Buy up defunct towns. Build new car-free cities on high enough ground that they will not flood when it rains.

We can solve the problem of polarization and social injustice by making residence voluntary…

The Tao of John 14 - The Fictitious Aspect of The Individual

The Seer came to show a different way A way we neither knew nor understood As time went on followers fell away They could not see the nature of the good + John is not about gathering souls to venerate the Seer  Though that would seem implicit in the text A closer reading tells us something else it sees the truth the Seer represents This truth eschews our simple binaries and cleaves to wholeness and eternityStephen's Remarkable Kindle Store
