The following exercise originally appeared in the 1986 edition of the Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential. It was partly based on a collection of work published in Patterns of Conceptual Integration (1984) which analyzed different philsophical and conceptual schemes [searchable PDF version]

Introduction

The is an experiment in detecting the challenges to comprehension in formulating declarations with different degrees of uncertainty -- and the consequent potential for encompassing the diversity of perspectives

Note that the source material for certain levels tends to be associated with particular philosophical perspectives but an effort has been made to "tune" the pattern into an integrated whole. The wording is unfortunately heavy in order to keep some link to such sources and because the pattern is designed as a continuing challenge to comprehension -- including the author's! The result is far from satisfactory.

This experiment can be used as a way of reviewing varieties of dialogue by number.
