### CATEGORICAL DEDUCTION-RELATED WRITINGS

Rational Engineering Deductions (REDs)
x: Shape (function) combined with Opposite shape (function)
y: () z: ()...
= maintains potential closed system (function)

example:

lever (function) vs. cyclical track (function)
supported (function) vs. (unsupported) function
short-distance pressure vs. long-distance lift
extended motion (function) vs. contained cycle (function)
momentum (function) vs. momentary activation (function)
stored energy (function) vs. no batteries (function)
= maintains potential closed system (perpetual motion)

Arbitrary / Paroxysmal Deduction ('Just' Deduction):
1-d:
A then D
D then A
(A and D are opposites)
2-d:
'AB' is 'CD'
'BC' is 'DA'
'CD' is 'AB'
'DA' is 'BC'
Basically two deductions.
A and C are opposite, B and D are opposite.
similar to categorical deduction or
two-part paroxysm.
3-d:
'ABC' is 'DEF'
'BCD' is 'EFA'
'CDE' is 'FAB'
'DEF' is 'ABC'
'EFA' is 'BCD'
'FAB' is 'CDE'
Basically three deductions.
A and D are opposite.
B and E are opposite.
C and F aare opposite.
4-d:
'A conj B boolean* C conj D' OR
'A conj D boolean* C conj B'
the statement is justice of / just as:
'opp A conj opp B Opp boolean** opp C conj opp D' OR
'opp A conj opp D Opp boolean** opp C conj  opp B'
Basically four deductions.
(The opposites can be nouns or adjective forms.
C must be the opposite of A,
and D must be the opposite of B).
*(for example, 'and' / 'or' / 'always' / 'never'
'rarely' / 'usually')
*(for example, 'or' / 'and' / 'never' / 'always' /
'usually' / 'rarely')
Opp Boolean must be opposite of Boolean in this case,
so the Boolean operators cannot be neutral.

Standard Categorical Deduction:
'A conj B Neutral Boolean* C conj D'
'A conj D Neutral Boolean* C conj B'
Two deductions strictly in terms of A.
Preference is given to the first and second terms.
Otherwise determined.
The second terms retain the same logic regardless of preference.
A and C are opposite.
B and D are opposite.
Conjunction of terms is primary.
*(for example 'is' , 'as is' , 'just as' , 'when' , 'so' )

Paroxysm:
problem 'ABC...' --> solution 'oppA oppB oppC...'
similar to 3-part deduction, except quantity of terms is explicitly flexible.
again, accepts noun or adjective terms.
in this case, conjunction of terms is secondary.

Deduction Using Unconventional Opposites
complexity/perfection/arbitration/ambiguity A --->
perfection/complexity/ambiguity/arbitration opposite A
This is a hand-holding version of categorical deduction
in which specific less common comparisons are preferred
for half of the deduction.
E.g. A is equivalent here to B in standard deductions.
Opposite A is equivalent to D in standard deductions.
A selection is made between A and C, so B and D need
not be selected again.
