My Review of My Schizophrenic Poetry Book on Goodreads

Creeping Cadence and Cadence Continues: Poetry in the Life of a SchizophrenicCreeping Cadence and Cadence Continues: Poetry in the Life of a Schizophrenic by Nathan Coppedge
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Considering this is schizophrenic poetry, it does remarkably well. Readers may find that this is 'juicier' and more creative writing than many other sources, and also abstract. However, it's not as conventional as mainstream poetry books, as the title suggests. It doesn't feel like a publisher, it feels like an author. You get to be 'inside my head'.

My Dimensional Philosopher's Toolkit Review on Goodreads

The Dimensional Philosopher's Toolkit: Or, the Essential Criticism; The Dimensional Encyclopedia, First VolumeThe Dimensional Philosopher's Toolkit: Or, the Essential Criticism; The Dimensional Encyclopedia, First Volume by Nathan Coppedge
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is genuine philosophy. I wrote it.

Coherent knowledge techniques using a diagrammatic method.

It makes Wittgenstein look nihilistic, and it makes Nietzsche look purposeless. It also provides a standard for re-interpreting how little Alfred Whitehead did with process philosophy.

Not metaphysics, but it does more with metaphysics than most works of philosophy have dreamed of.

Applies to theories of information, absolute knowledge, redefines syllogistic reasoning, and provides some good arguments for the partial failure of some traditional assumptions.

Overall, the best book of philosophy ever written (according to me).

Nietzsche is a better novelist, God is a better coherentist, but darn it this bucks the tradition. For a change someone (has) done something.

My 1-Page-Classics Review at Goodreads

1-Page-Classics: A Compendium Including Original Works and Interpretations of Eastern and Western Classics1-Page-Classics: A Compendium Including Original Works and Interpretations of Eastern and Western Classics by Nathan Coppedge
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the only book in the world in which you can find The Mandate of Heaven.

Now you're supposed to get a narcotic mystical feeling, and a pull for adventure---

The only warning is, most of the book is devoted to philosophy. But it's pretty original.

There is an emphasis on literature which crosses the boundary between fiction and philosophy.

Epiphanic Formula Drek #1

Public relates to introspection as it relates to contexts of modular architecture and applied reference.

The euphesia (a concept between eudaemonia and phronesis) of public interface is a conjunction between either introspection and modular architecture, or introspection and applied reference. In the first case, euphesia is public the way introspection has private interface. In the second case, euphesia has an interface the way introspection has private publicity.

Here are options:

< Interface is determined in the second case to be a mental interface, and mentality determines the structure of buildings and applied references. This is a highly systemic view, but has interesting brokerage with structure in that structure becomes informational.

< Interface in the first case is public euphesia. And in this case, structure determines the nature of introspection and modularity. In this case, the result is a relation of spirit and space.

Combining the two results, we have spiritual spaces determined to be informational.

So either, in some sense, data determines feng shui, or spiritual program determines data.

Ideas: Info-shui, Hyper-church.

Now it seems there is a prerogative to add concepts of information and spirituality to get further results.

System-weather combines with dynamic existentialism.

Dynamic weather combines with systemic existence.

Applications-divination combines with variablistic evolution.

Variablistic-divination combines with applications evolution.

Accessory form combines with programmatic exceptionalism.

Programmatic form combines with accessory exceptionalism.

Archetypal psychology combines with casual politics.

Casual psychology combines with archetypal politics.

A More Careful Variation: Coherent Logic with Sixteen Categories

Using the same sixteen-category method:

D, C, B, A
H, G, F, E
L, K, J, I
P, O, N, M

Initially, the categories are reset to correspond with the numeric constituencies:

A-B-F-E is taken to be one category box (quadra diagram), say CC: [1.1] Purity, [1.2] Simplicity, [2.2] Reduction, [2.1] Nothing.

C-D-H-G is taken to be one quadra, say [1.3] Complexity, [1.4] Chaos, [2.4] Paradigmatics, [2.3] Usefulness.

K-L-P-O is taken to be one quadra, say [3.3] Perfection, [3.4] Order, [4.4] Architecture, [4.3] Justice.

I-J-N-M is taken to be a final quadra, say [3.1] Construction, [3.2] Ugliness, [4.2] Injustice, [4.1] Destruction.

Here are the results for the four either-or comparisons:

QUADRA 1
Simple purity is reduced to nothing, or
Nothing pure is reduced to simplicity

QUADRA 2
Chaotic complexity has paradigmatic usefulness, or
Useful complexity is paradigmatic chaos

QUADRA 3
Perfect order is the justice of architecture, or
Perfect justice is the architecture of order

QUADRA 4
Constructed ugliness is injustly destroyed, or
Constructed destruction is an ugly injustice

Now, I use the same balanced method, in which 1 must be abverse of 3, and 2 must be abverse of 4. This time, however, the result is more balanced in terms of the macro-level oppositeness:


A. Simple purity is reduced to nothing so that perfect justice is the architecture of order, when chaotic complexity has paradigmatic usefulness so that constructed destruction is an ugly injustice

B. Simple purity is reduced to nothing so that perfect justice is the architecture of order, when useful complexity is paradigmatic chaos so that constructed ugliness is injustly destroyed

C. Nothing pure is reduced to simplicity so that perfect order is the justice of architecture, when chaotic complexity has paradigmatic usefulness so that constructed destruction is an ugly injustice

D. Nothing pure is reduced to simplicity so that perfect order is the justice of architecture, when useful complexity is paradigmatic chaos so that constructed ugliness is injustly destroyed

Remember that, miraculously, sixteen categories have been reduced to four. There are two primary methods for interpreting the validity of the aphorisms. One is the value method, and the other is the equivalency method. In the value method, it is assumed or determined that one or another end has an advantage in defending a particular set of principles, typically the principles laid out by that description (say, A .or D.). The categories can be re-arranged by cycling them in the same linear positions, if a different value system is desired. The second method, equivalency, involves comparing the aphorisms for differential values. The equivalent sectors are accepted as the standard for comparing the two aphorisms, and the remaining descriptions are used as the primary character of judgment. Axioms can be used of the form that 'the terms differ by the degrees of separation' [in which D. is 1-degree different from A. and 2-degrees different from B.]

Note that, by using the words as variables which have assumed quantifiability, both the opposite subjects A-C and the opposite contexts B-D provide a ground for determining many truths on subjects related to the terms. However, in the case of a sixteen-box diagram, the following assumptions must be made:

A. Two opposites express the entire range of a given notional meaning.
B. What is not an opposite term for anything is determined to be a meaningless context. Note that oppositeness can exist in degrees and still fit into the system.
A. Modal variation allows for multiple opposites for a given term.
B. The terms chosen are in fact opposites, both on a sub-quadra and on a macro-quadra level. E.g. 1.1 opposes both 1.3 and 3.3, 2.4 opposes both 2.1 and 4.1, etc.

With that, it should be possible to assess the validity of the system. Purchases of the Dimensional Philosopher's Toolkit are encouraged for additional insight and organization.

For Those Interested in Dimensional Philosophy

I will give a full example of a means to formulate categorical deductions on a sixteen-category diagram. This will allow me (hopefully) to progenitate the method in light of disappointing book sales.

Also, I make the excuse that this expansion of the system is not present in the published book, and deserves recording somewhere. It seems unlikely at this point that I will have the opportunity to publish a condensed version of the methods, as I very much would like to. So here is a way of meeting the prospective reader half-way.

There is an initial context of sixteen categories. I will show how these reduce to four. The method has none of the weaknesses of permutation. The categories are listed in order of closest approximate axialarity, from the beginning point to the oppositemost point.

D, C, B, A
H, G, F, E
L, K, J, I
P, O, N, M

A-B-F-E is taken to be one category box (quadra diagram), say CC: Quantity, Texture, Quality, Amorphous.

C-D-H-G is taken to be one quadra, say Physics, Coherency, Abstraction, Correspondence.

K-L-P-O is taken to be one quadra, say Pessimist, Permanent, Optimist, Temporary.

I-J-N-M is taken to be a final quadra, say Perfect, Subject, Complex, Context.

First, a method yields the following for the first quadra:

Quantity-texture is an amorphous quality, or
Amorphous quantity is texture quality

Second, the same method yields the following for quadra number two:

Physics coherency is abstract correspondence, or
Physical correspondence is abstract coherency

Thirdly, the same method yields the following for quadra number three:

Pessimistic permanence is optimistically temporary, or
Temporary pessimism is permanent optimism

Fourthly, the method yields the following for the fourth quadra:

Perfect subjects are complex contexts, or
Perfect contexts are complex subjects

Since only opposites combine [If, as in the sub-methods, the four macro-categories express opposites, something I was not careful to ensure this time, but which is securable in many cases], and there are two choices for every four opposites when it is determined that the relationship is non-arbitrary by virtue of oppositeness, then there are four large categories produced from the initial sixteen categories:

A. Quantitative texture is an amorphous quality so that temporary pessimism is permanent optimism when physics coherency is abstract correspondence so that perfect contexts are complex subjects.

B. Quantity texture is an amorphous quality so that temporary pessimism is permanent optimism when physical correspondence is abstract coherency so that perfect subjects are complex contexts.

C. Meaningless quantity is texture quality so that pessimistic permanence is optimistically temporary when physics coherency is abstract correspondence so that perfect contexts are complex subjects.

D. Meaningless quantity is texture quality so that pessimistic permanence is optimistically temporary when physical correspondence is abstract coherency so that perfect subjects are complex contexts.

These simply go to demonstrate the method. They would be more rational if opposite macro-categories had been chosen, such as if 1.3 were a suitable but separate opposite from 3.1 (vs. 3.3). The numbers provide a foundation for organizing the properties of the boxes.

Notice again, that the product is four from sixteen, made possible because of the double-tier of oppositeness, a kind of effect in which it is determined that there is one and not two layers of significance. This is not the same as a failed method in which only a fraction of the categories are compared, or in which fallaciously opposites are only compared to opposites, or in which fallaciously any detail is reiterated.

The general form of categorical deduction seems to follow the formula "the nth root of n-dimensions", so 4 = 2, 9 = 3, 16 = 4. If this is the case, it could be considered flat and vastly efficient. This is essentially possible because the property of opposites is protracted over every dimension of the hierarchy.


A simpler example in the extreme is the case of the beautiful stoic, who is said to be sensitive to ugliness.

For those using this article, I highly recommend citing the author, Nathan Coppedge. Further information about how to operate categorical methods may be found in The Dimensional Philosopher's Toolkit (2013), available from Amazon.

Representing More than Three Contingencies

According to M-Phi: "Only three (and no more) co-ordinate axes can be placed perpendicularly to each other".  However, I find, that if the axes are bent and conceived to be spherically perpendicular (e.g. still dividing quadrants), then there may indeed be higher-dimensional exceptions to the three-dimensional rule. This is conventionally the domain of the hyper-cube, but factually, representations in this sense seem conceptually possible which are not merely three-dimensional, nor are dynamic in the fourth. Here is a diagram demonstrating:

Intellectual Stimulation

Japan and China thought of Zen, where now it means more than one thing.

Philosophy follows art the way religion follows the unknown.

'Bureaucracy' and 'newspaper' are equivalent categories, if you include government and brochures.

Where sex begins with words like 'mega' and 'fine', philosophy begins with words like 'meta' and 'physics'.

Statistical Significance

Up to 206 from 210 for 'dimensional' on Amazon books.

(That's the search rank, the sales rank is considerably lower, because it accounts for multiple types of search).

My theory tends to be concretist, in the sense that profound things dwell in the ordinary. So I find it VERY rewarding, when statistics pay off.

My book, the DPT

was 210th for 'dimensional' on Amazon, which might be promising in the long term, assuming the rank doesn't slip. It's also 1st for 'dimensional philosophy'. At least on my computer.

Considering it's made two sales and two 5-star reviews, that's pretty good as things go.

I'd like to be much more popular when it comes to philosophy. I'm hoping my subsequent books help with that.

In other news, visits to my website nathancoppedge.com are sinking to around 30 per day, from 60-per-day two years ago. Hopefully things will improve.
