**Buridan's Implicit Assumptions:**

- classical syllogistic logic exists
- classical logical reality is closed
- truth is absolute
- tautologies exist
- change is analytic in classical time (we would say space-time here had Buridan known of relativity)
- truth presides over change
- 'is' represents an ideal 'equals'
- classical mind-body, subject-object, nonsubstance-substance, nonexistensial-existensial schisms
- the domain of substance/existence is the domain of reason
- the domain of reason is:
- the domain of the truth
- the domain of dialectic convention
- the domain of chosen
*exclusive*context

- conventional SOM classical assumptions are adequate for practicing the dialectical art
- the domain of chosen
*exclusive*context does not change during proposition assessment - the domain of chosen
*exclusive*context does not affect proposition terms during assessment - the domain of chosen
*exclusive*context is**separate**from proposition terms during assessment:- the domain of chosen
*exclusive*context does not:- cohere,
- commingle,
- interpenetrate,
- interact, nor
- interrelate with proposition terms, or their ultimate significates during assessment

- the domain of chosen
- substance is changeless except for analytic motion in space-time
- substance pre-exists
- substance arranges itself into objects that are:
- isolable (analytic)
- separable (analytic)
- individuistic (analytic)
- integrable (synthetic)
- note: non-gestalt
- note: non-quantum

- classifiable:
- by category, and
- are identical when their:
- objective category is identical
- objective properties are identical
- note: subjective categories and properties do not exist
- note: nonactual categories and properties do not exist

- observable:
- unilaterally (objects do not co-observe the observer(s))

- stable:
- do not move under observation
- do not change under observation
- note: interactions and interrelationships do not exist
- note: synergy does not exist
