    Synoptics to Semiosis by B. Deric Morris, 2001

    [1994] Tonight Deric and I (Swinton), had a most fruitfull discussion which we decided to present as recap to Metaphysics Anonymous. Our discussion started on the subject of the 'Dandelion Model' as a graphic template for all the various themes and topics as of late. At center would be chaos from which all the various and sundry theories and formulations would radiate as spokes of 'spoken' order. The whole thing would portray an interdisciplinary approach.Late One Night at Metaphysics Anonymous

    Now: letıs get down to cases. Semiotics is the field in which the uses of abstraction, the assignment of symbols, and the development of self-similar, self-referent systems of number, notation, and entity are examined on the basis of quantifiable terms. Thus semiotics, at its core, must needs deal with the ways in which we conceptualize phenomenal processes and how our concepts relate to observed event.

    Semantics (the study of meaning: theories of denotation, extension, naming and truth); Syntactics (the formal relations between signs or expressions in abstraction); and Pragmatics (the relation between signs or symbols and their users, hence our selection and application of signs), comprise elementary semiotics. This applies to mathematics as well as to linguistics. Chomsky has theorized that children learn language with ease because there is a "hardwired" capacity for grammar and syntax in the human brain. Iıd say rather that, just as there is an intrinsic semiotic framework to phenomenal Universe, so is there likewise a self-similar aspect of "mind" manifest in the brain.

Nano-technology in comparison promises a truly awesome next step for mankind.This paper attempts to convey some idea of what this new technology might mean.

    ". And their God is Lord of the Fief. Six days a week they wallow in self-pity, zenophobia, and cholestorol, keeping a hawk's eye to the close-knit penny. Then on the seventh day they grovel before their Lord, eat a monstrous lunch, and return home both sanctified and very drowsy."

    "We suggest that understanding emerges among people in a similar way. The conversation winds and wanders, arriving at places that, quite simply, could never have been anticipated. Given its unspecifiable path, Gadamer suggests that it is more appropriate to think of the participants as being 'led' by the conversation than as leading it. The conversation is something more than coordinated actions of autonomous agents - in a sense, it has us; we do not have it. Put differently, the conversation is not subject to predetermined goals, but unfolds with the reciprocal, codetermined actions of the persons involved."from "Cognition, Complexity, and Teacher Education" Davis and Sumara, Harvard Educational Review
