Self-Discovery

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.

Self-Organization

The emergence of order in a complex system from the collective interactions of many autonomous members without external direction.

Self-Organized Criticality

The state that exists when a complex system is poised at a critical point between too much order or destructive anarchy.

Semiotics

The philosophical study of communication through the use of signs, notations and their signification.

Singularity

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.

Social Protocell

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 lifeís origin.

Sophia Sapiens

A phrase which avails the ancient feminine name for wisdom that is meant to distinguish a womanís 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

Sophia Sapiens

A phrase to distinguish a womanís 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

Speciesphere

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.

Statistical Mechanics

Mathematical procedures for dealing with large numbers of items in a dynamic system such as molecules in a gas or stars in a galaxy.

Stochastic

Any process characterized by random variables or probabilities.

String Theory

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.

Superposition

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.

Symbiosis

The process by which several biological or societal components come together to mutual advantage.

Synergetics

A version of complexity science founded by Hermann Haken which employs a more physically based theory of ubiquitous self-organizing, emergent systems.

Synergy

When two or more components reinforce each other to produce a greater result than their sum.

Syntax

In grammar, rules and principles for ordering words into clauses and sentences.

Taxonomy

The theory and practice of filling in a hierarchical classification of organisms in evolution and at present which reflects their totality of similarities and differences.

Teleology

A philosophical term for an evolution which is oriented and proceeds toward a future state.

Thermodynamics

The science of explaining and quantifying the flow, usage, conservation and expenditure of energy. Generally applies to closed systems that tend to thermal equilibrium.
