Thinkers 17

Zen/0 -- Explore Thinkers, page 17, Synergetics

26 Again I'm hovering in meaning problems. He doesn't mean way into zero here. He's talking about in a system. So "out" could be anywhere, he's not talking about the out infinity. He's just talking about in the system vs out of the system

27 This is SO bizarre. How can he postulate a continuum in the area of discontinuity. If what he knows is not continuous, then wouldn't he assume that what he didn't know was also not continuous? Does he need it to be continuous for his theory? The next paragraph suggests it. (See Pirsig, p. 253, also)

28 'In' is into the system itself. It is not into the center, or into gravity.
