Making A Mark

“You Can’t Direct the Wind but You Can Adjust the Sails”

German Proverb


R.Elated. Personal Experience Is The Existence Of Relational Systems. By Presumption, This Is The Essence Of Existence (Nonexistence) Beyond The Personal. From this foundation along with the presumption of the notions of Subsumption (implying Distinction) and Image (implying Sign), MultiCoRelationalism was formed in 1963. As a derivative thereof, the form of a theory of theory formation with an inherent FORM requiring Order, DisOrder and ReOrdering MutiCoRelations was promulgated as a candidate for a Theory of Mind and its technological instantiation as Synthetic Mind, now referred to collectively as AG/Gnosteks with the product being the AutoGnome.


By trans(re)lating the substance of the following book into MultiCoRelational form, one has a rudimentary map for guiding the formulation and application of AG/Gnosteks.

Laws of Form (LoF) is a book by George Spencer-Brown, published in 1969, that straddles the boundary between mathematics and philosophy. The mathematics fills only about 55pp, but its prose is mystical, declamatory and paradoxical. Spencer-Brown was influenced by Wittgenstein, R. D. Laing, Charles Sanders Peirce, Bertrand Russell, and Alfred North Whitehead. Ostensibly a work of formal mathematics and philosophy, embodying an enigmatic “mathematics of consciousness,” its algebraic symbolism captured an (perhaps even the) implicit root of cognition: the ability to distinguish. [Edited by JRH (perhaps beyond recognition) from text retrieved 2/17/9 at ]

Beginning with the Void (i.e. No-Thing real or signatory), LoF directs one to MAKE (Draw) A MARK (Sign) (of distinction). With this act, a Universe is created (“In the beginning was the word (sign)”). LAWS OF FORM (LOF designating the movement evolving from the book, LoF ) reveals striking connections among logic, mathematics, the foundations of science and the philosophy of language and Mind, indeed of the “origin”, nature and evolution of the Universe. From the most fundamental foundations notions to the most intricate application, this MultiCoRelational re-vision of Humanity’s World View is without historical precedent or current competitors.


Despite the uniqueness and novelty, as suggested above, engendered by this MultiCoRelational foundation for our AutoGnomic products (generally realized as an IntelliSite incorporating a Search Engine coupled to a TriCoRelational Data Storage Engine (Phaneron)) and recognizing our empathic synergy with the philosophy of discovery as expressed by Spencer-Brown (see the following page) as regards our Research, Technology and Product Development, it seems paradoxical that our marketing focus should be largely confined to the zero-sum game of capturing market share against the competition in a fixed level consumer-resource economy.

WHAT IF we were to begin with a Market Void and MAKE A MARK (of distinction) thus creating our own Consumer-Universe via the added value of the creative/productive acts of each human by way of their enhanced performance due to the uploading of Ai3’s Synthetic Intelligence/Mind. WHAT IF we had 7 billion potential partners/consumers and were the sole provider of the products/services!

The following quotation is taken from Appendix 1 to the


“Discoveries of any great moment in mathematics and other disciplines, once they are discovered, are seen to be extremely simple and obvious, and make everybody, including their discoverer, appear foolish for not having discovered them before. It is all too often forgotten that the ancient symbol for the prenascence of the world is a fool, and that foolishness, being a divine state, is not a condition to be either proud or ashamed of.

Unfortunately, we find systems of education today which have departed so far from the plain truth, that they now teach us to be proud of what we know and ashamed of ignorance. This is doubly corrupt. It is corrupt not only because pride is in itself a mortal sin, but also because to teach pride in knowledge is to put up an effective barrier against any advance upon what is already known, since it makes one ashamed to look beyond the bonds imposed by one’s ignorance.

To any person prepared to enter with respect into the realm of his great and universal ignorance, the secrets of being will eventually unfold, and they will do so in measure according to his freedom from natural and indoctrinated shame in his respect of their revelation.

In the face of the strong, and indeed violent, social pressures against it, few people have been prepared to take this simple and satisfying course towards sanity. And in a society where a prominent psychiatrist can advertise that given the chance, he would have treated Newton to electric shock therapy, who can blame any person for being afraid to do so?

To arrive at the simplest truth, as Newton knew and practiced, requires years of contemplation [R.Elated-ed. Note–focusing of attention]. Not activity. Not reasoning. Not calculating. Not busy behaviour of any kind. Not reading. Not talking. Not making an effort. Not thinking. Simply bearing in MIND what it is one needs to know. And yet those with the courage to tread this path to real discovery are not only offered practically no guidance on how to do so, they are actively discouraged and have to set about it in secret, pretending meanwhile to be diligently engaged in the frantic diversions and to conform with the deadening personal opinions which are being continually thrust upon them.

In these circumstances, the discoveries that any person is able to undertake represent the places where, in the face of induced psychosis, he has by his own faltering and unaided efforts, returned to sanity. Painfully, and even dangerously, maybe. But nonetheless returned, however furtively.”
