Comments on the last few posts
Morin talks mereology, which is also included in the MHC/Wilber models. But so does Bryant and DeLanda talk mereology. The difference being, as explored at length in different threads, how this mereology is approached. Morin notes that restricted forms still cling to "classical science," and I'd add classical math. Strange mereology allows for the fuzzy boundaries of members is a set, and the absences within the set, which change the very dynamic of its complexity. All of which allows for not just cosmos but chaos, which must be eliminated at all costs in restrictive models demanding the excluded middle with pretenses to pure objectivity. In a general complexity knowledge of knowledge generation is prerequisite, the kind of work done by L&J and others, and the kind of work ignored by the restrictors.
