Classification of Seeds

The classification of seeds is based on the Anaxagorean sensations that are used to define them. Different seeds are objectified from different feelings. So seeds can be classified by sensation into different categories. The labels we give to these classes are arbitrary, but the following names have been chosen for their mnemonic value. They will smoothly fit into our traditional ways of discussing physics and be easy to remember.


rotating seeds

achromatic visual sensations

electronic seeds

inorganic visual sensations

muonic seeds

organic visual sensations

leptonic seeds

Seeds are Conserved

EthnoPhysics depends on using mathematics to describe experience. So we must comply with the logical law of noncontradiction which requires that a proposition and its negation cannot both be true. This means that a seed cannot just transform into some other kind of seed, or suddenly vanish, or spontaneously appear out of nowhere. The definition and classification of seeds, as discussed in the preceeding articles, provides a finite arrangement of descriptive possibilities. So, after we objectify some distinct binary sensation as a seed, then logically we cannot also reify the same experience as something else. This law is satisfied if the seeds in each orbit \mathsf{\Omega} of an isolated particle do not vary. Composite particles may change their attributes by rearranging their components. But individual seeds cannot change or else our accounts become confused and useless. So for isolated particles we require that seeds are repeatedly included in each orbit without altering their type: Seeds are conserved. As a narrative convention we say that seeds are indestructible. We might imagine them as something like the beads in the photo below. This protocol is biased toward describing patterns that are stable or reproducible. It puts some limits on the theoretical range of validity. However, next we use these durable particles to say exactly what we mean by a quark.

The classification of seeds is like classifying the beads seen in this panel from a Basap baby carrier.
