FOREWORD: THE ORGANIC UNIVERSE.

‘Tao=spacetime is made of Yin-form and yang-motion that combines into ∞ qi=energy beings’
The fundamental bias of Biology to cater to the ‘violent, predatory, animetal capitalist, militaristic’ white neanderthal visual man and its entropic view of the Universe, parallel to the entropic big-bang IS the denial of organic social evolution as THE FUNDAMENTAL ARROW OF FUTURES OF THE UNIVERSE, which we formalised with the metric equations of the fifth dimension at the turn of the century, in the milieu of systems sciences, but obviously our ‘believers’ and children of thought of the anglo-american industry of scholar misinformation did not quite understand (: never mind their glossy magazines and digital computers trying to find the meaning of it all… So back to school if you are humble and intelligent enough to wonder:
I. THE ORGANIC PARADIGM.
The 4th paradigm of knowledge. The organic whys of the Universe.
A deeper explanation of this work considers the meaning of knowledge and what questions it must answer to exhaust the study of a certain subject. In journalism we ask what, who, how, when and why.
The evolution of science implies big shifts in the paradigms, languages and philosophical dogmas we use to understand the Universe. In the evolution of science we observed first ‘what’ (fact and experience) and then asked ‘who’. It was the mythic age of science, the first paradigm of knowledge – when an anthropomorphic being, often a god was the cause of all events.
Then the Greeks used reason to ask the ‘what’ (experience) and ‘how’ of things, its causes and consequences. It was the 2nd paradigm of knowledge: logic thought.
The 3rd paradigm started by Galileo with his use of machines (clocks and telescopes), responded to when, measuring space distances and time frequencies in great detail with a single space-time system. The tics of the heart, the stomach, the moon, the atom and the clock are different, but to measure them we needed a unit of time and so we equalized all rhythms with a clock, and to compare the spatial trajectories of those cycles we needed a ‘background of space’, so we put together all the broken spaces of reality into a joined puzzle, which we called Cartesian space-time. The error of a single space-time came when we forgot those simplifications and considered that the abstract space-time continuum of Descartes used to measure all other spaces and times was the real space-time.
The culmination of this process of mechanical measure came with quantum theory, which refined the measures of the cyclical trajectories of particles in the microscopic world and General Relativity, which refined them in the cosmological realm by correcting the deformations of those rhythms of time and distances of space caused by the limits of speed of our light-based Universe.
In philosophical terms, the paradigm of measure meant the birth of mechanism, the fundamental philosophy of our world today: the machine – no longer man, an organism – became the ‘measure of all things’. This was a simplification, as today we realize that machines merely imitate our organs of energy and information with networks of metal-atoms (so a crane is an energetic arm of metal and a chip an informative brain of metal), which now we fusion into ‘organic’ robots. And so the change of paradigm from the Greek, Aristotelian and Asian tradition of organicism to mechanism is only a hiatus on a richer, more complex understanding of the whys of the Universe.
Mechanism changed also the language of understanding of the Universe, from Aristotelian Logic to mathematical Platonism, since mathematics was the language used by machines to measure the Universe of time and space with clocks and telescopes; while logic was the language embedded in the syntax of words, which measure time with causal verbs that describe the logic relationships between its 3 dimensions of past, present and future. So in terms of philosophy of science, mechanism meant a pendulum law that changed the paradigm from Aristotle (organic, temporal causality) to Plato (mechanical, spatial geometry). This was a wrong choice, because a truly inclusive theory of reality has to put together both languages and approaches as we shall do in this work: the geometric how & instrumental when matched by a temporal why, which must be by definition a causal, temporal process. The 3rd paradigm obsessed by spatial measure was not very kin of such inquire, as Feynman famously put it: ‘the why is the only thing a physicist never asks’. And yet the why has always been a fundamental question of knowledge.
That why should respond to the existence of a program of creation, evolution and extinction of the reality we see all around us, which always gives birth and extinguishes the same entities, repeating their forms once and again. What is the purpose of the Universe and all its repeated parts? Why they have those forms and follow always a life and death cycle? Thus, scientists, not satisfied with the limits of the 3rd paradigm of measure kept asking the why, which could not be a personal God (the who of the 1st paradigm), neither the machine, the instrument of measure of the 3rd paradigm (‘God is a clocker’ said Kepler, because he used clocks to measure it and ‘God speaks mathematics’ said Galileo, because those machines translated the events of the Universe into mathematical data).
According to Deism the whys of existence are due to a personal being, external to the Universe that makes it all happen and cares for humans more than for the rest of His work. According to Mechanism, this is due to the self-similarity between the Universe and the primitive machines we humans construct to observe it. Mechanism though needs ‘someone’ to make the machine, which is not self-generated; so it is similar to deism, reason why the founding fathers of science, all pious believers, adopted it as a proof of the existence of God, which had given man self-similar properties – the capacity to make machines to the image and likeness of the Universe. The problem with those 2 approaches, which in fact are the same is obvious: a personal God is an anthropomorphic, subjective myth and science must be objective; while a mechanical view of the Universe still needs an internal, self-sustained process of growth, creation and synchronization caused by an external God that made and rewinds the clock – as Leibniz clearly stated in his critique of Newton(‘Letters to Clarke’). Scientists today are unaware that mechanist theories are in fact deist theories, reason why Kepler and Newton, pious believers, liked them; since they were a metaphor of their self-centered, anthropomorphic religious beliefs: If man created machines because we were made to the image and likeness of God, God had created the ultimate machine, the Universe.
Such theories cannot satisfy the rational, objective, self-sufficient nature of science, as they require external myths to work. This leaves us only with a 3rd objective, scientific possibility, organicism – a more complex theory that comes of age in this work: if the why is neither God nor the machine, there is only a 3rd option in between – the organism, which is an intermediate concept; since an organism is self-sufficient as God is, yet it is part of Nature as the machine is.
So what systems sciences does, is to bring about a more scientific paradigm, in which everything becomes organic; and so God is not required to build an immortal Universe as in Mechanism. Why people who pretend to be ‘scientists’ still defend mechanism has to do with tradition (the Baconian Idols of the tribe of physics, who initiated modern science without abandoning their biblical beliefs) and with power (machines control the world in our technological civilization – they are the new Gods of mankind; and so they are the ‘role models’ for our philosophy of science – more than with objective scientific epistemology that can only accept as a rational self-contained theory, organicism.
The Universe is a fractal organism.
The Universe and all its parts made to its image and likeness, is a fractal that reproduces information, co-existing in multiple scales, the very essence of what science considers to be an organism, whose purpose is to ‘reproduce’, to ‘grow and multiply’ into social networks of similar cells, in scales of growing complexity from strings to neutrinos and light rays, to particles, quarks and electrons that reproduce and associate into atoms that evolve socially into molecules, cells, states of matter, and if we ‘divide’ artificially them into inorganic and organic paths, multicellular organisms, super organisms, societies and ecosystems, geological super organisms (word coined by the founder of Geology, Hutton to define Gaia), solar systems, and societies of stars, the ‘mitochondria’ that reproduces the substances, which the informative, gravitational black hole, the ‘dna’ of the ‘gala cell’ ab=uses to reproduce its dark matter, which further organise those ‘gala cells’ into tubular networks, of some larger timespace organism of which we can see only a small part with little detail, Lainakea, seen in dynamic form in the right picture, floating in the ‘dark sea’, which if we could see, (as we observe only 4% of it), will likely be a tight network of atom-galaxies of the next ‘hyper scale’ of reality…
As this writer, author of a formal, comprehensive model of the Universe and all its parts as a fractal super organism, of which this web is its model of social sciences as super organisms, insiste for decades, all scales of reality can be model as super organisms, and the fact that humans do NOT have enough information about some of them, and there anthropomorphic ‘delirium tremens’ makes them ignore their nature to ‘come on top’ as abstract gurus of reality and only intelligent, living species, does NOT change what they are and where they are.
In the graph, as astronomers advance in their ‘perception of reality’ with ‘metal-eyes’ (telescopes) an metal-brains (computers), they start to see the vital motions in time an the structural organisation of it all. So finally they have seen the speed flows of ‘gala cells’ (the name I gave to galaxies 30 years ago, when I first modelled them as super organisms of stars, its mitochondria, evolve by black holes, its DNA-strains of information), and part of a cosmological network (strings of galaxies), which I predicted would behave as any network of super organisms, do.
The only scientific philosophy: organicism.
What is the Universe?: an organism or a mechanism? The first complex answer has taken longer to be formalised, because it requires to ad to the motions in space studied by physicists, the arrow of in-formation, of form, stored in the form and frequency of the clocks of time cycles of reality, which are along its motions in space the two elements that conform it all realities. Indeed, all what you see are forms with motion. And while physicists have reached an extraordinary dexterity calculating the motions in space of beings; we are lagging behind in the understanding on how form trans-forms itself into new forms of in-form-ation. This is not to say we need sorely a formal model of the ‘eternal philosophy of science’, we call ‘organicism’. The understanding of the Universe as a system that reproduces information, for a few basic reasons:
- Only an organism replicates itself without the concourse of a ‘maker of the machine’ – God in the earlier physicists’ view, now obsolete. As machines do not reproduce.
- Only the definition of time as the substance of reality – cyclical motion that reproduces form allows the Universe to move, as only if motion=time is the ultimate substance the Universe never stops.
- Only if it is cyclical, repetitive, there are laws of science which are precisely those repetitive motions.
- Finally we know since Relativity that there are infinite clocks of time with different speeds (we knew it always just looking at the clocks of nature, but the expansion of physicists’ way of measuring all time clocks equalised to the rhythms of the mechanical clock, had obscured those facts.
Look around you. All what you see are forms, we shall call ‘fractal points’ (as they become larger and with more information, the closer we come to it), MOVING in repetitive cycles (as the perform the same ‘actions’, once and again, in sequential patterns).
The universe is about those ‘cyclical points’ tracing ‘worldcycles’, ‘imprinting through the process’ its ‘wave-like forms’ on ‘lower scales’ of size, and ‘territories of order.
Reproduction of information is immediate as ‘motion’ by definition ‘never stops’, so the mere repetition of a ‘world cycle’ of a particle (a cycle of a particle in a larger ∆+1 scale of reality), implies an action of reproduction. So all motions with forms are ‘actions’ of reproduction, the purpose of the reproductive, living, organic Universe.
But humans do NOT seem to be able to understand the organic Universe, and the laws of cyclical time. Why? THE ANSWER of course is in the paradox of the ego, which make us believe we are the center of the Universe, as we perceive reality as any organism does from its self-centered egoist point of view, selecting information to favor our ego, so we believe to be the center of reality and despise all other beings as mere objects to ab=use to our advantage. But this paradox has the negative side-effect of NOT fearing other species and denying them organic living laws.
Science in that sense IS both objective and CYCLICAL in TIME BY DEFINITION but opposed to biological ‘lineal truths: Objectively science is cyclical because only when we observe events that repeat cyclically in time, we can make science by extracting synoptic laws of those repetitive cycles as the next graph shows for A) kepler orbital cycles that started astronomy that predicts the cyclical motions of matter C) biology that started with evolution that deal with the overproduction of organisms, which fight for limited resources and so the fastest evolving, and reproducing organism extincts others and survive, and the same concept basis of biological history and economics in the center, where we see how exactly the same curves with its overproduction crashes and switch to predator weapons happens in history.
So now that we know what time is: cyclical causal patterns of events that repeat themselves, we can find easily the causality of those cycles in the processes of biological reproduction, overproduction in this case, of machines and weapons, and its competition with human beings. In the next graph we see some of those time cycles (astronomical, sociological and biological). IT IS THEN OBVIOUS that the causation is NOT abstract physical cycles, but BIOLOGICAL evolution. Kepler doesn’t help you to understand why weapons kill men, machines evolve into robotic organisms, and displace human and soldiers from war and labor fields.
In graph, all sciences predict the future of its species by projecting the patterns of previous cycles, obtained with sound data and logic, mathematical, objective models of reality. Models such as neo-classic economics that fail those proofs of truth must be considered ideologies. In the right, the evolution and extinction of species in planet Earth, whose evolution of information now transcends into machines, which are systems of metal that humans construct by imitating their biological organs and functions of energy and information, proper of animal life.
The rational, scientific message not the messenger matters.
Now who i am to state this? This is the wrong question.
Nobody cares who discovered first 2+2 but we care for an epistemological proof of its truth. Pythagoras theorem is Not Pythagoras but science, in act discovered by Chinese, indians and even Mayans also as truth is not EGOTIST BUT objective, and that is what bio-history and bio-economics, based in the today highly censored and rewritten real facts, patterns and cycles of History tries to reveal.
Science is reason not authority, ‘those who impose authority with power will be the laugh of the gods’ said Einstein, which I hold in high esteem as my predecessor in what is my fundamental work – the discovery of the logic-mathematical formalism of the 5th dimension of scales of space-time (first article left above), which structures the Universe in ‘organic patterns’, and defines indeed the arrow of social evolution of this planet and the Universe -a fractal that reproduces information, in all its parts made to its image and likeness. Yes even if You never heard about me, for reasons I will just explain now, my work as a scholar has some merit, for those who want to know the ultimate answers with a bit more rigour than the usual books of revelation, infotainment and explosive big bangs and mechanical theories of the Universe (:
The Universe reproduces information, hence it is an organism.
The understanding that the Universe is about reproducing information and hence it has organic properties, is the main tenant of General Systems sciences – the new philosophy of science that will substitute in the XXI century as a paradigm, the earlier simplex models of Newton and Galileo, of a Universe modelled as a simple machine, due to the obvious fact that they had improved quantitative measures by adopting instead of the human spatial eye of the artist, and the verbal three dimensions of time (past, present and future) of the ethic, social writer, the first metal-eye (telescopes today evolved into digital cameras) and metal-brain (clocks, today evolved into digital computers) to measure space and time – is simple:
Man NOT the machine should be again the measure of all things, because it is the most perfect organism we know of, and the Universe is a complex super organism, made of smaller super organisms, made to its image and likeness… even if humans and its ego paradox prevent them from seeing those organic SYSTEMS AS ‘isomorphic’ organisms to themselves. Something we shall prove in this section of the post and the right down side.
The SCALAR organic Universe: Memes and fractal planes.
‘I seem to be the only scientist who believe there are infinite cyclical clocks of time in the Universe’
Einstein, father of modern cyclical time theory, on his fight with peers to impose the old/new perennial philosophy of science of the cyclical Universe.
Let us now ground the concept of Gaia, the Earth and the metalearth as super organisms evolving in time, in MORE OBJECTIVE TERMS through the science of systems, and the discoveries about the fractal, organic Nature of the Universe, and how information is transferred between smaller scales (ab. ∆) and larger whole organisms, in ANY SYSTEM OF PHYSICAL, BIOLOGICAL OR SOCIAL NATURE.
We have to understand this: a time cycle breaks space into an inner and outer region creating a timespace organism, or information-energy system (as we have seen information and time are two sides of the same coin and vacuum space has motion and energy, so modern physics discovered that time-information and space-energy ARE the substances of which we all are made-We are ALL systems made of time clocks that carry our information (as we speak I hear the nobel prize of medicine is given to the discoverers of the laws of cyclical time clocks of human organisms), stored in cyclical heads and particles and ‘energy body waves that move’ our systems; and this duality of organic structure, has an astoundingly simple, beautiful law to order the infinite species of time cycles and spatial energy, in SCALES of organic symbiosis
