CATEGORICAL DEDUCTIONS

{
To my knowledge, categorical deductions were invented as a
method of coherent knowledge as recently as 2013. I, Nathan
Coppedge, was the inventor. It is an offshoot of an earlier project
called The Unity Project that adopted an analogical format and
also the characteristic Cartesianism. That two-part aspect is
perhaps the most unique part of the method, although its
implications are actually much more broad and important, as it
provides a basis for true objectivity
}.

Purpose: Categorical deductions are designed to yield
objective knowledge on a wide variety of subjects.

How it works: Opposites are assumed to be exclusive of
all territory between them. Opposites oppose along the
diagonal, for example, in quadratics A opposes C, not B
or D. B opposes D, not C or A.

It may be though of as exponentially efficient, since four
categories produces only two deductions.

The deductions are AB:CD and AD:CB strictly for quadra.


THE DIAGRAM LOOKS LIKE THE FOLLOWING:














EXAMPLES

1. Paradox opposes non-paradox.
wealth opposes poverty.

Deduction 1
   "Wealth is paradoxical, then when it is empoverished
   it is un-paradoxical."

Deduction 2
   "Wealth is un-paradoxical, then when it is
     empoverished it is paradoxical."

Other less obvious deductions are also possible:

2. Subjectivity opposes objectivity.
Determination opposes free-will.

Deduction 1
"Subjective determination objectifies the will."

Deduction 2
"Subjective will objects to (objective) determinism."

Categorical deductions can also be made with longer individual
category terms involving multiple words, with the assumption that
the exclusion concerns the coherent
relevance of category A. If a
different category is seen as primary, a different context may
result. However, since the opposite of category A is
pre-determined, and it doesn't matter whether B or D is
compared first, then there is no effect on the system by the
arbitrary choice.

There is also some similarity to the methods of Paroxysm
(solution to all paradoxes, which operates in sets of neighboring
categories compared to their opposites) and AOLT-THERE
(which instead involves selecting a term AND an opposite
within
each category-square
).
