Peirce's simple example is: "A gives B to C" which is impossible to capture in dyadic form.

I have no clue of why (1) one needs only dyadic relations for being "processed into formal logic" (whatever that means), nor (2) why this example is showing the purported "impossibility": indeed any relation of any arity can be decomposed into compositions of dyadic relations (not that I see the need for it but ...); to wit, gives(A,,to(B,C)).

But I'm sure my ignorance of such "deep" issues explains my silly comment ... ;-)
