Quotations
 73 ;;Quote: a whole is one concept made of subparts with something in common; can be enumerated 73+;;Quote: every body has an infinite number of parts; i.e., the continuum is infinitely divisible 74 ;;Quote: necessary and contingent propositions; what is (so) either is or is not (so) vs. something exists 77 ;;Quote: situs--parts are ordered in a line or a set in a vicinity 3 ;;Quote: Hobbes--everything done by our mind is a computation; 'is' and 'is not' corresponds to + and - 4 ;;Quote: analyze categories as mutipart numbers; e.g. 'Interval' is 2.3.10 where 2 is space, 3 is between, and 10 is whole 4+;;Quote: analyze categories to their indefinable terms; Aristotle--we must not seek a definition of everything 5 ;;Quote: if terms are written as their indefinable, first terms, it is easy to resolve predicates and derive terms 10 ;;Quote: create a universal writing of first terms; e.g., a relation is a line; like Chinese but simpler
