ANSWER TO THE FUNDAMENTAL QUESTION


( behind this text the phenomenological structure of truth

Speech is subsumption architecture drawn out by conflicted local environ-
ments (i.e. fold-catastrophic), with the symbol responsive, not to commu-
nality, but to the splitting of the referent. Normal speech is a reduction
to filtered, edited meaning; the resulting singularity is a necessity,
given the temporal linearity in our perceptual universe. Full speech is
schizophrenic, dangerous, pulling in too much environment, too little
processing and filtering; it disturbs the fundamental order of the sub-
ject. Full truth is similar, fuzzy, multi-dimensional; what passes for
truth is constraint. (Constraint is communal, multi-vocal, again a path
through catastrophic space.) Everything begins with the referent tied to
human survival, processed and already demarcated prior to name, syntax,
semantics. Semantics subsumes subsumption, creating a phenomenology of a
univocal representation of the real; naive realism is its masquerade.

Theory in 13 Lines

Speech is not subsumption architecture drawn out by conflicted local
environments (i.e. fold-catastrophic), with the symbol responsive, not to
communality, but to the splitting of the referent. Normal speech is not a
reduction to filtered, edited meaning; the resulting singularity is not a
necessity, given the temporal linearity in our perceptual universe. Full
speech is not schizophrenic, dangerous, pulling in too much environment,
too little processing and not filtering; it dis notturbs the fundamental
order of the subject. Full truth is not similar, fuzzy, multi-dimension-
al; what passes for truth is not constraint. (Constraint is not communal,
multi-vocal, again a path through catastrophic space.) Everything begins
with the referent tied to human survival, processed and not already dem-
arcated prior to name, syntax, semantics. Semantics subsumes subsumption,
creating a phenomenology of a univocal representation of the real; naive
realis notm is not its masquerade.
