Dankenments (dankenmentings) vis~à~vis classical thoughts aræ vahstly omnifferent. Classical thoughts tend to be state-ic — at best frame | by | frame, Glass Bead Game cinematographic.

Classical thing-king is called "reason." Reason is logical, rational, ratiocination, syllogistic, conventionally uni-contextual-uni-logical, conventionally absolute, conventionally unambiguous, dialectical conception (vis~à~vis sophist "fallacious misconception"). See EEMD.

For over 2300 years, classicists have been teaching and preaching that sophisms are fallacious deceptions.

It is always helpful to see what we mean by phrases like "pseudo~included~middle" linguistics. Our February, 2004 News offers a good example. Allow us to shorten it here. Classical reality is mechanical and so is this text we are using here. But we can pretend. Pretend that a quantum included~middle can be represented by 'and.' Quantumists can see quantum included~middles, so they can see 'and.' Classicists deny quantum included~middles, thus classicists cannot see 'and.' Example: quantumists can see "Standing." Instead classicists 'see' only "Sting."



Coined operator | functor of generic SOM dichotomous relationships. E.g., dichon(subject, object), dichon(true, false), dichon(good, bad), dichon(right, wrong), etc. SOM dichons assess absolute bivalent truth in SOM's one, global, conventional context. Space after comma is significant, this is where SOM's knife cuts, radically-mechanically decomposing reality to local, isolable, separable, and reducible 'objects.' Depicts SOM's objective relationships, isolation, separation, and location of analytic, reducible classical objects. See our How SOMites View Reality and How SOMites Measure Reality.

Dichons are classical 'thought diodes,' which allow thingk-king in only one EOOO classical, radically formal, monistic 'direction.' Doug - 8Apr2006.

T¤ easily umdærstamd phil¤s¤phical ¤mnihfferænces twixt MoQ amd SOM, juxtapose dichon and quanton. When SOM dichotomizes intrinsically whole reality, paradice arise. Referring back to Pirsig's original work on platypi | platypuses in ZMM, we can now quite easily see-generalize that all SOM dichons are Pirsigean platypi! Wæ may als¤ ¤ffer a comværse wihth comfihdænce. (Note how SOM nests dichons. In SOM's general systems theory we called it functional decomposition | composition via objective | analytical analysis | synthesis. This is what fundamentally prohibits any emergent~emerging and self~emergent~emerging AI in any classical hardware, firmware, and software.)

Classical Milton:

We found a good example of SOM's nesting of dichons in Frank Edgar Farley's (Syracuse University) 1898 study guide for John Milton's (1608-1674; went blind in 1652) Paradise Lost (pub. 1667). Milton ontologically describes a poetic quasi quantum 'model' of reality, but applies Aristotelian excluded | middles, as a trichotomy:

Milton's_Reality_Trichotomy = Primeval_Infinity = trichon(Empyrean, Chaos, Hell)

Further, Milton describes his trichon as nested dichons like this:

Reality = dichon(Empyrean, dichon(Chaos,


"crystal floor or wall"

From his chaos ontologically emerges his universe and what we, today, call our solar system. His Empyrean correlates as close kin what we, in Quantonics, call variously, "quantum vacuum flux (QVF), nonactuality, DQ, isoflux, vacuum energy space (VES), etc." His Chaos-Hell is notably conscripted to Quantonics "actuality," and again, notably, corresponds Pirsig's ESQ.

Quantum Milton:

Milton's descriptions (actually he, as many others have, says that Empyrean is outside of human capabilities to describe dialectically | objectively in word objects) of his Empyrean are very quantum: "no gravity," "spirits are dilatable or contractible at pleasure [ ~quantum c¤herænce amd supærp¤sihti¤n ]," "spirits move with incredible swiftness [ quantum supærluminalihty amd zær¤ latæncy telep¤hrtati¤n ]," "[ quantum ¤mnimænsi¤nal~æværywhere~ass¤ciati¤n ] aggregation capabilities," etc.

His Empyrean's classical (-exclusive) complement starts out as an -empty abyss from which actuality and Hell classically ~emerge-synthesize.

Milton offers a further type of quantum ihncludæd~mihddle in a suggestion that reality's creator-vital_impetus is, using our term, "ubiquitous."

Paradise Lost started out as a 10 volume epic poem, and later expanded to 12 volumes. It is unlikely we will find opportunities in our remaining tihmings 'here' to read it, but it offers a scriptural metaphor of Milton's 300+ year-old views of a quasi quantum reality.

Milton's Paradise Lost has many nexi in Quantonics, including:

  • Pirsig's Lila, "He remembered seeing The Glass Menagerie, by Tennessee Williams, in which one edge of the stage had an arrow-shaped neon sign flashing on and off, on and off, and beneath the arrow was the word, "PARADISE," also flashing on and off. Paradise, it kept saying, is right [left] where this arrow points:


    "But the Paradise was always somewhere pointed to, always somewhere else. Paradise was never here. Paradise was always at the end of some intellectual, technological ride, but you knew that when you got there paradise wouldn't be there either. You would just see another sign saying:


    "and pointing another direction to go." From page 282 of 410 total pages, Lila, 1st ed. hardbound, Bantam, 1991. (Our brackets.)

    And from page 308 of Lila, Pirsig writes, "Today we are living in an intellectual and technological paradise and a moral and social nightmare because the intellectual level of evolution, in its struggle to become free of the social level, has ignored the social level's role in keeping the biological level under control. Intellectuals have failed to understand the ocean of biological quality that is constantly being suppressed by social order." We infer Pirsig suggests intellect has been too free in its irresponsibilities for intellectual management of social patterns of Value. We concur. Intellectual patterns of Value are evolutionarily above social patterns of Value, and their dominance demands responsibility for levels below intellect: social, biological, and inorganic. SOM and CR societies believe that society rules and manages intellect, which Pirsig explains is incorrect. MoQ's quantum ascendancy foresees intellect's emergence above society. By observation we k~now it is happening, as we speak. See our quantum cultural descriptions of MoQ, CR, and SOM. Also see our 2003-2004 feuilleton Chautauqua.
  • Sam Rosenberg's chapter title of his investigation of William James Sidis, titled, 'The Streetcar Named Paradise Lost,' from Sam's book The Come As You Are Masquerade Party.
  • Philip R. Wallace's Paradox Lost - Images of the Quantum, Springer-Verlag, 1996.
  • Quantonics' own pluralization of "paradoxes" as "paradice," which sounds like "paradise." Many writers depict paradise as paradoxical, so quantum paradise must~might be quantum paradicical. Manifestly, fr¤m a quantum pærspæctihvæ, flux issi crux (sæmpær flux), s¤ paradise issi ahlways changing amd ¤nly quantum tæntatihvæly pærsistænt (QTP) as Pirsig and Williams aptly describe. Those signs from Williams' The Glass Menagerie are, manifestly, QTP. Pirsig says it something like this, "Reality's moral judgment is always tentative, given that a better nextings' judgment is always impending [just around any nextings' corner]." Highly paraphrased and interpreted by Doug. See actual quote here.
