The Chinese Challenge :: 中国挑战

"The Chinese Challenge"-Teamblog is opening up a discussion about a possible new rationality hidden in the Chinese writing. The main question is: What can we learn from China that China is not teaching us? It is proposed that a study of polycontextural logic and morphogrammatics could be helpful to discover this new kind of rationality. Those topics of polycontexturality are presented at my website and at the complementary Blog Rudy's Diamond Strategies. Start with the "Pamphlet".

Category of Glue

Is there any glue to stop the decline of Western culture?

FULL TEXT Glue/Category Glue.pdf


A typology of different categories of glue (ordinary, super-, para-, proto-, trans-glue) are glued together with different strategies of gluing (set and category theory, combining logics, bi-category with (co)spans, polycontexturality and diamond theory).

Interpretations of “interactional glue”, “nerve glue”, “logical glue” are sketched.

Keywords of the dissemination of the concept of “glue” in history (Hegel, Marx, Lenin, Gunther, Derrida, Obama) and strategies (Glue, Opium, Mediation) of gluing them together under a general parapluie (ontology, society, solidarity, fear) are critically sketched.

The economical question is: Can we still afford to glue interactions together?

The category of glue isn’t blue. Categories are clueless to interaction and are banking unsecured resources.

How good is Portuguese Glue?

The best quality of Portuguese Glue is accessible, for an affordable prize, at the Logic Shops for Combining Logics in Lisbon, Portugal.

Everything, that doesn’t fit together by nature can be glued by categorical glues.

Best selling products, at the time, are the “(co)-span” articles by José Luiz Fiadeiro.

Without doubt, José’s glue, especially his “interactional glue”, is one of the most elaborated and purest form of glue on the market.

Glue, today, is highly important. It always was. To feel save and gluish it is crucial to use only the finest glue

Such a high quality has its own tradition of expertise. Much was imported from the San Diego Zoo, California, USA. Other decisive work had been done by the scholars at place. They also had the opportunity to be guided by Brazilian specialists. As usual with success stories, there are hidden, well superseded sources, too.

Thus, the new product of combining and gluing is now available as the glue with the magic label "(co)span".
To span has a temporal aspect and span is has metric determination of an inter-space or gap.

"In order to make interconnections independent of the nature of components involved, interaction protocols are formalized not in terms of morphisms (i.e. part-of relationships) but a generalized notion of (co-)span in which the arms are structured morphisms | the head (the glue of the protocol) and the hands (the interfaces of the protocol) belong to different categories, the category of glues being coordinated over that of the interfaces.”
"The 'semantics' of the protocol is provided through a collection of sentences | what we call interaction glue that establish how the interactions are coordinated. This may include routing events and transforming sent data to the format expected by the receiver."

Agglutination, inversion, chiasm: “gl” and “lg"

Complementarity of categories and saltatories is interplaying in a glue-free game of jumps. Categories might be glued. Saltatories are not gluing their gaps. Complementarity between categories and saltatories
happens in a glue-free interplay of bridging salti.

In other words, how can we glue things together without getting hassled by the clamminess of our glue and still being able to enjoy the gluishness of its intoxication?

The answer to this paradox is given by the jump-operation of saltisitions.
Saltisitions and hetero-morphisms are characterized by antidromic orientations. Hence, it would be natural to think of them as products of inversions, i.e. as inverted morphisms. But that’s not a solution.

The inversion of “glue” is “ugly”, and there is no doubt that glue is fundamentally ugly and a categorial member of ugliness.

A combination of the ag- “gl” and de-glutinational “lg” to “gl-lg” is discovering a tiny chiasm in the very concept of the ugliness of (ag)glutination (GLAS, Derrida).

This phenomenon probably was the very reason that let to the misleading hope that the mechanism and strategy of inversion and dislocation of (semiotic) glue to help to avoid the crash of the evaporating glue of togetherness.

Saltisitions are inscribing the conditions of the possibility of categorical compositions. Compositions in category theory are glued together by the matching conditions. Their clamminess might be avoided by a
jump from category to diamond theory.
