About Combining the Combinations

  “Evolution means the creation of larger and larger islands of order at the expense of even greater seas of disorder in the world. In the process of evolution, each succeeding species is more complex and thus better equipped as a transformer of available energy.: Jeremy Rifkin, Entropy: A New World View (1980). You wouldn’t enjoy a perfectly ordered universe. A wholly ordered universe would be at perfect equilibrium and would be dead. There can arise no Order unless there is a Flow of Matter and Energy which decreases in intensity as a system moves toward equilibrium. Motion, change or … Continue reading About Combining the Combinations

About the Law of KLeiber

A power law relates one variable to another raised to a constant power. The general form takes y = xa, where y and x are variables, and a is a constant exponent. A power law exhibits the property of scale invariance. When you multiply the Scale (x) with a factor b the function (y =  baxa) does not change its Shape. In 1817 Goethe wrote his book ”Zur Morphologie“. This book was the start of a new science called Morphology, the Science of the Shapes. In his book Goethe describes the so called Uhrplant, the Primal Plant, which is based on … Continue reading About the Law of KLeiber

About Entrainment

In 1665 the Dutch physicist Christiaan Huygens noticed that two pendulum clocks in his room tended to Swing in Sync. The same happens with fireflies, cardiac pacemaker cells,  menstrual cycles, birds in flight, walking, dancing, circadian rhythms in animals, quantum gravity theory, dialogues and people in a crowd. Two connected Systems always Entrain because Every System in our Universe Vibrates and is connected. When the Parts are  connected, the Rhythm of the Whole controls the Rhythm of the Parts. The transformations of the seperate parts takes place in two steps. In the first step the variance of the frequencies of the parts … Continue reading About Entrainment

About Good Vibrations

The Good (Creation) and the not-Good, the Bad (Destruction),  are two Waves that are moving in Opposite Directions. Together they create interference patterns called Standing Waves. Standing Waves are Waves that preserve their Form and can be perceived as Material Particles. If the Good is a Wave Moving with the Clock, the Bad is a Wave Moving Against the Clock. I believe the Good is moving with the Clock because the words “Right” and “Wrong” were associated with the Right Hand and the Left Hand and the concept “moving” (wringen in Dutch). In Magic the Left Hand Path is associated with Black Magic … Continue reading About Good Vibrations

About the Good, the Bad and the Nothing

Sometimes You want to do the Good Thing and the result is a Bad Thing. Sometimes You start an Activity with a Good Intention but the Activity runs completely Out of Hand because You were unable to Predict all the effects. Sometimes an Activity starts with a Good Intention and Ends with a Go]]><![CDATA[od Result but much later You discover that you have started a Chain of Activities and the Result of the Chain is Bad. Good and Bad are Context Dependent. Look at this little Story: A Chinese farmer awoke one morning to find a horse grazing in one of his fields. … Continue reading About the Good, the Bad and the Nothing

About Old Fashioned Thinking

Many thousands of years ago human life was a far different experience to that which we enjoy today. Life for our ancient forefathers was a mixture of wonder and fear. The interesting point to notice is that the human body has not changed since the old days. The things that have changed are our environment and our language. We see objects our ancestors could not see and therefore we talk about concepts our ancestors were not aware of. Although our concepts have changed the way we think has not changed. Thinking is a bodily process. Our muscles talk and our … Continue reading About Old Fashioned Thinking

Will McWhinney: About Grammars of Engagement

This is a version of chapter Eight out of the never published book Grammers of Engagement of Will McWhinny. Will spend more that 10 years to write a new book that contained everything he learnt after writing Path of Change (1997). Will worked with many people to test his texts and I was one of them. Will died before he could finish his book. Will gave his versions to me to comment. I am sure Will has adapted this chapter later but I think it is still a very interesting document to read. I really don’t know if I am … Continue reading Will McWhinney: About Grammars of Engagement

About Morphology or How Alan Turing Made the Dream of Goethe Come True

The Ancient Greeks believed that the images of waking life and dreams came from the same source, Morpheus (Μορφέας, Μορφεύς), “He who Shapes“. The Science of the Shapes, Morphology, was created and named by Goethe in his botanical writings (“Zur Morphologie“, 1817). Goethe used comparative anatomical methods, to discover a primal plant form that would contain all the others-the Urpflanze. Goethe being a Romantic Idealist hoped that Morphology would Unify Science and Art. “The Primal Plant is going to be the strangest creature in the world, which Nature herself shall envy me. With this model and the key to it, … Continue reading About Morphology or How Alan Turing Made the Dream of Goethe Come True

About the Calvinistic Work Ethic

The Hebrew belief system viewed Work, seen as Manual Labour, as a Curse devised by God to punish Adam and Eve when they sinned in the Garden of Eden. Ponos is the Greek word for work, which originated from the Latin poena, meaning sorrow. At it’s core, work was associated with pain and drudgery. It was the divine punishment for man’s original sin and viewed as a necessary evil. For the Greek and Romans and almost every other Ancient Culture, the Dirty, Manual, Work was to be done by the Slaves. Until Now nothing has really changed. The only suitable occupation for a … Continue reading About the Calvinistic Work Ethic

About the Rationalists

One of the most important causes of the current economic crisis is Rationalism. Rationalists believe that the Imagination, the Emotions and the Consciousness are controlled by the Brain. The Human Being is seen as a “walking head“. The Roots of Rationalism can be found in the Enlightment. The Scientists and Philosophers of the Enlightment were obsessed by objectivity and perfection. In their view, Objectivity and Perfection can only be accomplished by controlling the subjective parts, the Emotions and the Imagination of the Human Being. The subjective parts are part of the Body and the Body is Impulsive and Illusionary. The Warm Chaotic … Continue reading About the Rationalists
