“CURT: WHAT DOES YOUR |?????| >>> SYNTAX MEAN?”
—“Can you help me understand the syntax you use? What does the vertical bar ” | ” mean? And this ” > “?”— Eric Grose
| DIMENSION | start limit > step > step > step > end limit.
Where >, <, <-, and ->, state the direction. So you will see me use < < <, or > > >, or < < <- center -> > > depending upon the direction.
It’s a “Dimension” definition, meaning an ordered range of values that are permissible for use in a property of a Class (definition).
It defines the LIMITS (start and end) and COMPLETENESS (range of values), in PARSIMONIOUS FORM, thereby satisfying Testimonialism’s demand for both LIMITS and FULL ACCOUNTING for any warranty of due diligence against ignorance, error, bias, and deceit.
Given a Class (Table), consisting of (a) Properties(Attributes) and their Values (data), (b) Relations (references), and (c) Methods (internal operations), and (d) functions (external operations), a Dimension provides the range of values permissible for a property.
It’ is a geometric (linear, serialize) method of defining a dimension (table of values).
So we convert:
|TEACHING| Reading to > Lecturing > Socratic Teaching > Running a grad seminar > Running an MBA/Law course (case studies) > Running a Competitive Game > Military Training.
Define TEACHING: id: int, str: category.
| TEACHING |
1, Reading to
3, Socratic Teaching
4, Running a grad seminar
5, Running an MBA/Law course (case studies)
6, Running a Competitive Game
7, Military Training
(a tiny bit of the relational calculus)
Because the grammars allow us to produce an N-Dimensional geometry of ‘meaning’. But that is not something I am going to put into this series of the work. It’s like putting equations in to it. So I’m using the Series instead.
