FORMAL / LOGICAL SYSTEMS

THE VESSELEXT

A vesselext is a series of compartments in which each
compartment does some logical operation. The compartments are
typically arranged in a horizontal series, in which the size,
grouping, and angularity of the compartments communicates
something about their logical operation (In Chinese the
apartments might be arranged vertically...)























ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS:
In step two, try to pick two or three expressions, preferably single
words, which collectively form a definition about the term from
step one. In step three, go through an initial process of what it
means to have more of the later parts than the earlier parts.
Actually do some thinking. Then formulate the best expression
that briefly expresses all of the best knowledge on that subject,
using those words, and very few others, or else, by a rational
deduction from one part being greater or ‘all’, and the other being
smaller or ‘necessary’. In step four, use thinking in a more casual
way, attempting to find the most interesting combination of step
three and step one. The result should ideally be clever, or simply
very true, and the vesselext is designed to give those kinds of
results, but it depends on the perfection of the previous steps.
