Appendix E

Octan Philosophy

The following document is an abridged account of the major dissertation, commonly known as Principles of Natural Philosophy, of the enigmatic ancient philosopher Fleegello. Whether Fleegello was in fact a person, or merely a collective label for a particular philosophic school, is still hotly debated, but the weight of evidence now seems to favor the former view.

The editors would like to acknowledge the numerous individuals and groups that have contributed to the Otkin-Utalk Project, in its efforts to reconstruct the threads of our octan philosophical/religious heritage during the Early Machine Age. In particular, we thank our colleagues at the Institute of Ancient History (IAH) for releasing a wealth of critical original documents only recently recovered from deep ice storage vaults at archeological dig site #13 on Jopian Moon-3. The current work draws heavily on this new IAH material.

Editorial comments and discussions are scattered liberally throughout the paper. These are enclosed in brackets to distinguish them from the main text. The reader is cautioned that much of the original material is still fragmentary and incomplete, and subject to serious translation and interpretation errors.
