Cool meditation. My brain looks favorably upon ideas which merge concepts from different disciplines, such as molecular biology and computer science
, evolution and algorithm development
, or in this case philosophy and programming language design. This allows you to play interesting games with your mind by transferring concepts across disciplines and seeing how well they hold up. I think that the comparison Greek Philosophies goes very well.
One minor criticism though: I believe that your "Aristotilian" should be spelled "Aristotelean," that's the way I've always seen it in my logic and history books.
Good meditation though, I enjoyed reading it quite a bit.
