# Gestalt Science: Fearless Asymmetry

… and Symmetry

“The progress of science is the discovery at each step of a new order which gives unity to what had seemed unlike.” — Jacob **Bronowski**.

“I quickly came to recognize that my instincts had been correct; that themathematicaluniverse had much of value to offer me, which could not be acquired in any other way. I saw that mathematical thought, though nominally garbed insyllogisticdress, was really aboutpatterns; you had to learn to see the patterns through the garb. That was what they called “mathematical maturity”. I learned that it was from such patterns that theinsightsand theorems really sprang, and I learned to focus on the former rather than the latter.” —Robert Rosen

There is two ways of doing a theoretical calculation according to Enrico Fermi: either have a clear physical model in mind or have a rigorous mathematical basis.

I have an addendum to both Fermi and Rosen’s ideas.

In Gestalt Science, I posit that you need four things:

1) a clear **physical** model,

2) a rigorous *finite* **mathematical** basis,

3) a solid **information**al Framework,

4) a flexible **envolution**al model.

Without the four components in a process model of reality, there will be somethings missing, hidden, and not even wrong.

Ilya Prigogine had put forward that dissipative structures do not obey Boltzmann’s order principle, because a dissipative structure is not in equilibrium. Moreover, one must admit that the universe is not in equilibrium, it is forever changing: “evolving” as it were. This observation is key to understanding how the “evolution” of our universe and its embedded structures will proceed.
