THE COSMO-SEMANTIC TABLE
Now draw a
double entry table with these laws in ordonnees and coordonnees).
get a table with 81 boxes.
Box 27 for example is (causality)(symbolic
correspondences), which can also be written (c)(sc).
We have here the
first view of the interaction of the natural laws the way they come
together in nature, contradictions reacting to motion, hierarchy
interweaving with attractions.
Because of the law of complementary
contradictions which brings things in two, the positive and the
negative, each box of the cosmo-semantic table must be studied
accordingly, having its positive as well as its negative aspect.
COSMO-SEMANTIC TABLE AS AN INFORMATION STRUCTURE
cosmo-semantic table is the first peep into what, in the Bassa
nation, the elders call "Nguy Minton mibi yek", literally
"The power the demiurges left behind." Before anything,
this power is an information structure capable of considering
billions and billions of pieces of information at megabitic speed, a
rate a billion time faster than the fastest electronic network.
Um's brain taps into that structure, it can create fish, crabs, and
prawns, and make them disappear at will. When a human brain taps into
that structure, it can transforms man into a palmnut bunch, blasts
thunder in broad daylight, or uphold the night.
To better understand cosmo-semantics and
better make use of it later, we must of course conceive each law as
attaining an end in itself. Its very existence is the presentation
and representation of its many components unto itself, for the sake
of its own ends. But the whole system is a complex unity, which can
be analyzed as a process of agreeing with its own
Satisfactory cosmo-semantics must explain the
interweaving of efficient and final causation.
One tendancy is
exemplified in the slow decay of physical nature; the other tendancy
is exemplified by the early renewal of nature in the spring (cycles)
and by the upward course of biological evolution.
