A new work akin to global brain or noosphere to represent a nascent enveloping, worldwise intelligence and accessible knowledge repository
Another name for cerebrally stored and recalled information and experiences.
Second Law of Thermodynamics
Whereby heat cannot pass from cooler to warmer. A statement that as energy does work it is converted to and lost as waste entropy.
A temporal term for a transfigurative event some 13.8 billion years after the big bang cosmic origin. As Giulio Tononi and James Lovelock, for example, have alluded, it would mark the presence of an integral planetary intelligence and natural knowledge. We add that by virtue of this global capacity, a second intentional ecosmic cocreation could begin.
This phrase engages the occasion that we peoples, as intended participants made and meant to learn and cocreate, should be able to learn about and know the whole genesis ecomos. In regard, a further, intrinsic aspect seems to be that have to figure all of this by our own self initiative.
The emergence of order in a complex system from the collective interactions of many autonomous members without external direction.
The state that exists when a complex system is poised at a critical point between too much order or destructive anarchy.
The philosophical study of communication through the use of signs, notations and their signification.
A term used for the instant point of origin of the universe, also known as the big bang. Also for a radical break or event in time.
An identity coined by Claes Andersson and Petter Tornbert (search) for a human community far removed but akin to the bounded protocell vesicles which formed at life’s origin.
A phrase which avails the ancient feminine name for wisdom that is meant to distinguish a woman’s brain faculty which not only uses both hemispheres in unison, but by way of the right integral side can discern meaningful content and contextual field images
A phrase to distinguish a woman’s brain faculty which not only uses both hemispheres in unison, but avails upon the right integral side to discern meaningful content and a contextual field image
We enter as a composite word, which has not yet been coined, to broadly represent the global presence of animal form - microbial, avian and so on. But another usage would be a designation for our homo to anthropo to just now Earthropo major evolutionary transition in individuality.
Mathematical procedures for dealing with large numbers of items in a dynamic system such as molecules in a gas or stars in a galaxy.
Any process characterized by random variables or probabilities.
A quantum physics hypothesis that the universe, at its most fundamental level, is composed of infinitesimal vibrating loops, rather than point-like particles such as quarks.
A principle from quantum physics which claims that the state of a particle is not directly knowable because it may be in many possible states or configurations simultaneously, as long as we don't look to check. It is the measurement that causes the object to be limited to a single possibility.
The process by which several biological or societal components come together to mutual advantage.
A version of complexity science founded by Hermann Haken which employs a more physically based theory of ubiquitous self-organizing, emergent systems.
When two or more components reinforce each other to produce a greater result than their sum.
