We will also need to develop systems of numbers that can actually relate to one another (as with the ternary fluid logic numbers of Shakunle, 1994). All that’s going to require a lot of co-operating and a lot of listening. If we don’t manage it, the cumulative damage to our living space may become irrevocable. If we do, we may truly fulfil our potential to deserve the name of Humankind. 20 Inclusionality Acknowledgements Many people have participated in the exchange of ideas that has led to my writing this article.

Explicit information and implicit space are therefore both inseparable and dynamically co-creative. They make and are shaped by the other in the same way that the water in a river system makes, shapes and is shaped by the space through which it flows, as it erodes rock and deposits sediment. And the making of space makes possible a flow that makes more space – an ‘autocatalytic flow’ – as when people walking across a meadow create and consolidate an inductive path by following their leader. This inclusional view of information as content in relation to spatial context contrasts with the discretely packaged informational units of rationalistic, binary (either/or) logic and digital computers.

The moral imperative emerges from the idea that, as Kant put it in his stunningly contemporary Idea of a Universal History with a Cosmopolitan Purpose (1784), ‘nature has willed’ that ‘all the natural capacities of a creature are destined sooner or later to be developed completely’ (First Proposition). The human capacity of freedom and rational autonomy, in particular, can, as Kant states, ‘be fully developed only in the species, but not in the individual’ (Second Proposition). Inclusionality is therefore imperative, and humankind has to keep working towards resolving all tensions in the empirical world and reconciling all social antagonisms in order to bring about the, eventually cosmopolitan, ‘perfect political constitution as the only possible state within which all natural capacities of mankind can be developed completely’ (Eighth Proposition).
