Origin of quantum mechanics in diagonal method, from Carlo Rovelli's Helgoland:

"Heisenberg's idea is to write all the quantities which describe the movement of the electron -- position, velocity, energy -- no longer as numbers, but as tables of numbers. Instead of having a single position x for the electron, we have an entire table of possible positions X: one for every possible leap. ..."

Ok, but how is this not just the dialectic? It seems like all you've done is taken Hegel and repackaged him in mathematical/analytic school terminology. Is that the joke, this "continentalism in analytic terms" itself being a diagonalization/dialectical contradiction?

Wondering if eastern countries would have arrived at a Wu Xing inspired pentamorphic compass.

What would be an example of the diagonal method at play in the life sciences?
