A. The Book of Naturome: Our Decipherment of an Actual Ecosmome to Geonome Code Endowment

In accord with the Book of a Genesis UniVerse CoCreation past review, present geonate and preview outline above, this next version will continue Galileo’s second edification theme with his most familiar title (Chap. II. A. 3). Once again, this late occasion, some 400 years on, can be qualified by and attributed to a consummate evolutionary emergence of a planetary progeny. This Earthuman acumen just forming in our midst can then be realized as coming to her/his own phenomenal knowledge a novel geonomic literacy. As this collaborative sapiensphere takes on the semblance of a whole bicameral. womanwise faculty, such a capacity is able to allow and witness a greater genesis from uniVerse to EarthVerse.

By way of this rationale and attribution, which is noted throughout the site, a 21st century scientific, conceptual, ecosmic revolution (Ecopernican) also becomes evident. By 2020/2021, braced by some 8,800 references over 85 sections and 4,000 pages, if of a mind to ask, see and consider, a breadth and depth of evidential veracity suggests that it may be possible to actually discover what this ambient being and becoming may be and become. By virtue of its organic, procreative essence, an informative code-script program source has been found with an independent, eternal presence which then ascends along in an exemplary, genotype-like way at each and every instance.

In further regard, Chapters III and IV gather and report its multiplex universal, mathematic, self-organized spontaneity. Chapters V, VI, and VII next proceed over 40+ sections to document how it has experimentally proven to be in common self-similar, scale invariant evidence across every spatial and temporal phase and instance. This innate, natural (parental) hereditary quality thus imparts and expresses itself from galaxies to geologies to life’s nested, developmental, cellular, quickening, personified gestation. And just now, as yet unawares, this oriented procession arrives at our prodigious EarthKinder (son/daughter) potential issue.

As Earth evolution and history reaches this early 2020s hour, as Geonate above sited, a consummate moment of dire, multi-demic trauma and urgency has taken on an epic apocalyptic guise. Again this ancient Greek word was more about a concurrent, numinous dispensation by which a new creation, a beginning of days, is to be revealed and informed. We thus feel it is apt propose that Galileo’s Book of Nature written in mathematics and geometry, circa 1623, can at last be fulfilled as an EarthWise edition whose textual narrative is composed in genetic language. With this Natural Genesis site as a resource, our intent here is to gather an array of current papers which can attest and affirm for every phase and facet so as to certify such a Naturome basis. We first begin with a 21st century sequential survey of its broadly conceived scientific discernment as 1990, 2000, 2005, 2010, 2015, 2018, and 2020/2021 stages spiraled from individuals to a global collaborative success.

A 2021 Survey as Our Earthuman Sapience Discovers a Family Ecosmos Genesis with a Naturome Code

As a way to express this providence, we trace the scientific origins, development, and late consolidation of self-active complexity phenomena by way of a 1990 to 2022 sequential orientation. In retrospect, this thirty year span to date can be sorted into 1990, 2000, 2005, 2010, 2015, 2018 and 2020/2021 phases so as to convey a typical divergent, convergent and now integrative occasion. By this late vista, a spiral transition from individuals to its present global collaborative success can be viewed.

Apropos, we note the presentation yesterday (October 5) of the 2021 Nobel Physics prize to Giorgio Parisi, (Sapienza University, Rome) for his dynamic “spin glass” theories. While one worthy man, the award is for a certain aspect within a vast subject field. Into the 2020s it would seem more rightly to have a “Global Prize,” with a corrective expansion to include biological, genetic, cerebral, linguistic, societal and other fields. ONCE

1990 A subsequent major emergent evolutionary transition in individuality could be seen to begin with the end of the cold war standoff. I visited the Santa Fe Institute in 1987 where the complexity revolution was much initiated. Coincidentally an unprecedented era began whence worldwide communication, travel, and trade became increasingly possible. At the same while this epochal revision of complex, self-organizing, systems science takes of in depth and diversity. The parallel appearance of graphic computational abilities provided a vital component.

2000 Into this new century, and millennium (quite timely), personal laptop computers, faster mainframes, and Internet websites began to form an interlinked capacity. But Apple and Microsoft programs are rudimentary, Google, Amazon, et al are fledgling start-ups. The study of “nonlinear” dynamic phenomena in many guises such as complex adaptive systems, synergetics, automata, fractals, et al (see Chap. IV for an extensive survey) came to inform theoretical and experimental endeavors.

2005 Early stages of scientific publisher and academic library websites were just coming online. I still had to go to MIT to fetch paper books such as The Knowledge Grid (Hai Zhuge) and to Yale for Self-Organization and Evolution of Social and Biological Systems (Hemelrijk), This later collection was the first time that wherein entries from molecular and microbial domains to animal groups to languages began to report something similar going on at each instantiation.

2010 After a decade of interlinked hardware and software advances, along with more user access, scientific journals shifted to a paperless online presence. (My own view is that both human-scale paper and faster cyberspace modes should have been kept, especially so students. A worldwise sapiensphere began to form and intensify into billions of site content-filled sites such as encyclopedias. As this global facility stirred into a relative mind of her/his own (Daniel Graham 2021, et alia), by an evident consideration, it might be seen as commencing to learn on its (her/his) prodigious own. At this date, the presence of nature’s multiplex networks from neural to metabolic and celestial realms gained recognition.

2015 A phenomenal Ecopernican revolution enters a convergent phase of integrative synthesis. As quantum and classical systems united, astronomic raiments gained an active fertility, and life’s physiological, cellular and cognitive scales organized themselves, an independent code-script became well implied. A common informative, bigender-like source which served to form emergent vitalities could be readily distilled. Life’s symbiotic unions, and biosemiotic encodings also were also as a prime movers. In tandem, a historic advance in artificial intelligence (AI) occurred whereof brain-like neural nets were found to be a much better method.

2018 A further quality could now be appreciated whence these natural patterns and processes were realized to seek and reside at a self-organized critical balance of entity and community modes. At an accelerating pace, a strong recognition that an ecosmic universal genesis performs best at a dynamic bigender poise of neuron + synapse, me member + we group, DNA biomolecule + AND regulatory net, and ever on, became widely articulated (Chap. IV. B. 4).

2020/2021 As this EarthMinder intelligence may reach an epic momemt of observant self-cognizance, our planetary progeny is now well informed and prepped to actually discover a natural genesis uniVerse to human/Wuman EarthVerse procreation. In accord, such a fertile organic spontaneity seems to be rooted in and spring from one, genetic-like (familial) program. A once and future UniVersality For a working word, a “Naturome” source code is dubbed as a once and future “Universality” by virtue of its whole scale recurrence. Search “Alexandria” for a December 2019 conference by this name, sponsored by the NSF director France Cordoba.

But in March, a fierce global pandemic overtook all lands and peoples and devastated our vital Gaian abode and precious kinderkind, If there were not enough troubles, a compound onslaught of climatic, military, political, sectarian and more calamities led to an “apocalyptic” dread (see Geonativity in Part I.). Into this 2021, when it seemed that vaccines could turn the tide, the virus morphed into a worse variant. But this ancient Greek word was more about a palliative dispensation which can would then reveal and inform a new peaceable transformation and resolve. See VIII. Pedia Sapiens for some geonomic guidance, mind/matter, second genesis, protocell ecovillage and complementary genocracy examples.

To restate, the intent of this Part A: The Book of Naturome entry is to identify and make available at this traumatic hour that a second scriptome editiom may indeed also be there for our providential edification. If an emergent transition to a planetary progeny can allowed and considered, this global sapience seems altogether proceed to have discovered a family ecosmic procreation, as this whole site documents. In regard, a select list of entries for each topical section that just now (2019 – 2021) can serve to affirm an ecosmomic to geonomic code follows next.

The full current reference list for each chapter and verse herein was first posted in July 2021. As contributions which fill in and verify a common part/wave. DNA/AND, node/link, me/We universality appear apace, we add an array of select entries for September and November 2021. But it opens with a clearest statement to date of nature's bigender familiality.

Milli, Smitha, et al. A Rational Reinterpretation of Dual-Process Theories. Cognition. Vol. 217, October, 2021. This section has sought to gather many findings since the 1970s that human beings, and lately all creatures, possess a double neural-cognitive faculty whereof each half contributes an opposite attribute. Along with bicameral brain studies, a divide into slower, think about it and fast, just do it options has been in consideration, but with much debate. Into 2021, UC Berkeley, MPI Intelligent Systems and Princeton University propose a clarification by way of the same, typical left and right hemisphere modes of separate details or a contextual orientation. By so doing, an integral synthesis is achieved which provides a significant confirmation of a universal, bigender complementarity.
