A remark on Sekhem

 

See how few are the things which a person must gain control of in order to live a peaceful and godlike existence, for the gods will ask nothing more from the person who does so.

– Marcus Aurelius. Meditations, 2.5

A category-theoretical remark on Xeper and Remanifest

 

A general category of Being, particular categories of Becoming: this is a suggested philosophical guide for sorting the two original kinds of toposes and what they have become. The unity and cohesiveness of Being provides the basis for Becoming, and the historicity and controlled variability of Becoming produces new Being from old.
