I continue with my commentary on CP 3.73, developing the Othello example as a way of illustrating Peirce’s formalism.
To familiarize ourselves with the forms of calculation available in Peirce’s notation, let us compute a few of the simplest products we find at hand in the Othello universe.
Here are the absolute terms:
Here are the dyadic relative terms:
Here are a few of the simplest products among those terms:
Among other things, one observes that the relative terms and do not commute, that is, is not equal to
