Please expand CurriedObjectViolatesDemeter
The term "curried" comes from "curried functions" which, like the pure functional language Haskell, are named after the logician Haskell B. Curry. A curried function can be "partially" applied to its arguments, returning a new function that can be applied to further arguments to calculate a result, or partially applied again if it also takes multiple arguments.
A better description of curried functions and the Haskell language can be found at http://www.haskell.org .
I think James is really on to something here in what it portends for
the relationship between the object paradigm -- fraught with JohnVonNeumann
temporal traps -- and Alexander's TheoryOfCenters?. Currying is one
of the fundamental techniques for transforming time into space, so it
helps one reduce the artificial sequencing complexities of the JohnVonNeumann
model into purely structural architectures that one can start to talk
about using the concepts in NatureOfOrder.
