A table.  A chair.  A chair beside a table.  A chair on its side; a chair set upright.

A table.  A table has a surface.  If the table is upright, the surface is orthogonal to the direction (line, radius) of gravity.  The surface is flat, part of a plane.  What is a plane?  Two parallel, or two distinct intersecting, lines determine a plane; or it can be seen in other ways.  (See plane in Wikipedia).  Still, you might have to know what 'flat surface' is.  (What was the first 'flat' in human history?  The open hand?  Papyrus?  A bowl of water?  A table?  A triangle?  In the imagination?)  What is a line?  Is it definable?  What is 'infinitely far', and a segment or part of that?  Perhaps the table's top is 'a flat surface of finite extent.'

A chair beside a table.  "Off to one side.", so indicated.  There is 30 cm between the table's edge and the nearest edge of the chair.  What is an edge?  Can it be described mathematically, as a type of shape or form?

What does the mathematics or description or actuality represent?  What does a chair represent?  What does a table represent?  Is it this verb represent-ing, that is so represented, the table or chair represents, an ongoing?  Is it this unfolding represents and fact (and the universe is an unfolding catenation) that is the actuality?

What of Takuan Soho's Ten Qualities: Form, Nature, Embodiment, Power, Function, Latent Cause, External Cause, Latent Effect, Manifest Effect, the Total Inseparability of these.  (The Unfettered Mind by Takuan Soho translated by William Scott Wilson.)

What of Dogen's no-thing, nonobjectifiable, nonsubstantial grounds, and one's actual working-with and realization of the space as taught by the Buddha in The Lankavatara Sutra (translated by D. T. Suzuki).

A single flower or branch, a single philosophical or religious statement, a single realization or experiential -- any of these can make a significant difference, offer insight, or a path.

There are the three times past, present, and future.  (This is an unfolding space.)  There are events and surfaces and points within these.  And wake-stated awareness; and transformative insight.  These are ever-unfolding, and the present moment.  There is something said or realized now that unfolds in the past; there is in the future the present moment.  There is the present moment of the present moment.

Then there is the non-discriminating mind and the nondual; and the universe is just like this.

The universe is an unfolding catenation.



Zen-Minsky

I recommend p. 289 of The Emotion Machine, where Minsky has 2 diagrams, one titled "Symbolic Apple" and the other titled "Connectionist Apple."  Apply no-thing, and dimension, or dimensioned-Wittgenstein mind.  (See The Emotion Machine by Marvin Minsky.  See Tractatus-Logico Philosophicus by Ludwig Wittgenstein.)



Logic - Zen



p then (temporal) q.  s[o].

hold s[o] before you as a float in mind.



This is the Diamond Sutra.



e.g.  (noticing) 30 cm tree bark-trunk p then (noticing, temporal) segment of tree branch (spatial) q

space

concrete world, tree, rock, mountain, a ...



s[o]

transframe t (s[o])

etc.



What one brings to computing

There's a certain view and function -- a type of perceptual and functional space, that in a way goes beyond perception and no perception -- that one can bring to computing and object-oriented programming -- and all of life.  In a video on YouTube from his 1997 OOPSLA talk, Alan Kay introduces the Japanese word 'ma' as meaning 'the space between'; Nagarjuna says that when we do not consider space as a subject, we do not realize its nature at all.  (Fundamental Wisdom Of The Middle Way by Nagarjuna translated by Nishijima.)

In object-oriented programming, is it the wake-statedness of the objects and their unfolding?  Without state and function, what would there be?  Is this reflective of the world, and are things in this way, too, so represented?  Is there pratityasamutpada -- dependent arising -- in this?

In The Lankavatara Sutra, the Buddha says that a fundamental function of the bodhisattva is to support all beings.

So these are some of the ideas for my nascent venture.





Marketing

to the

small business
workgroup

focused on

custom apps
integration

Appeal in some to logico-digital thinking and style; and in others routine computing that is productive, reliable, extensible, and flexi-structure.

Object-oriented programming in Java and Smalltalk.

Runtimes on Windows and Linux. Windows 10 and 11 and Oracle Linux.





Technology

Technology is secondary to life, or can be integrated with it.  The point is to develop profound insight into life and its functional-experiential.  We as humans have done so since ancient times through to the modern.  Technology can be used to functional purposes, insight purposes, exploration purposes, archival purposes, and sharing purposes.

The digital computer is high-tech digital papyrus.  It also is a virtual space.

Some technology highlights for this venture, with this in mind.
