Concluding Remarks

  • Peter Kien-hong YUEmail author


The purpose of writing this chapter is to highlight the main points of this book. First, from the first word in the title of this book to the last word, everything has been presented logically. It can be done because dialectics in general or the one-dot theory and along with it, for example, a series of crab and frog motion models in particular can help us to rationalize everything systematically and coherently, while non-“dialectics” sooner or later will face contradictions of one kind or another, which can be defined as something that cannot be described and explained, if not inferred or predicted, logically, systematically, and coherently.
