General Systems Theory
From the 1950’s and 1960’s, an attempt to create an interdisciplinary science of common, dynamic interrelations amongst objects, such as cellular metabolism or members of a society.
Another phrase so to identify a nascent global brain cognizance
A new word for a similar neonatal event whence in a procreative ecosmos life's Earthly evolutionary gestation may have just reach its whole world parturient term.
As noted in these essays, and across the website, if of a mind to ask and see, life’s temporal embryonic, developmental course can be appreciated as an actual reproductive endeavor which has just now reached some manner of its gravid, parturient planet term.
A word which follows from genome to represent and signify an apparent global genetic code, broadly conceived, for our EarthKinder progeny. It has been used in the scientific literature in other various ways.
A simple, obvious extension of genome so as to identify a similar genetic complement for our nascent personsphere phase

From Arthur Koestler and others, a nested scale or hierarchy composed of integrally whole components.
A perspective that takes in and considers an entire scene or system all at once – opposite and complement to reduction.

The presence of similar evolved, usually anatomical, characters which have descended from a common ancestor.
The relationship of common characters which arise independently within a certain phylogenetic kingdom.
A theory for the origin of self-replicating molecular systems which involve feedback loops by which they bootstrap themselves.
The theory that our universe began as a microscopic point which instantly burst to an immense cosmic size at the big bang.

Mellows and Fellows
Since the mid 17th century, scientists, who were then and now men only, were known as Fellows, such as of the Royal Society. Although in recent years women have gained entry and Nobel recognition, they are still called by this term. Here we suggest a complementary citation and significance by just changing one letter to enter Mellows.
The overall classification of multicellular animals.
The tendency of complex, evolving, self-organizing systems such as brains or genomes to form differentiated functional modules.
