This preparation process was designed to extend the purpose of the
session into time. Each speaker, being required to actively and publicly
relate to each other's thoughts, would be motivated to learn and perhaps
talk in advance among their own constituents, thus spreading the idea of
making connections. Assuming that the public interaction would be a
pleasurable experience for the speakers, they, being leaders, would be
motivated to carry on further interactions after the conference.
This necessarily compact and oversimplified bundle of formulations can convey
only a faint suggestion of their interrelatedness which builds them into a non-
Aristotelian system. For more detail, readers can inspect the thirty-one Korzybskian
formulations (including multiordinality, nonessentialism, neurological focus, etc.) that Robert Pula found necessary to describe in his Preface to the fifth edition of Science and
Alfred Korzybski, Science and Sanity, 5th ed. [ Englewood, NJ: The
International Non-Aristotelian Publishing Co., 1994]).
