… 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 the mathematical universe had much of value to offer me, which could not be acquired in any other way. I saw that mathematical thought, though nominally garbed in syllogistic dress, was really about patterns; 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 the insights and theorems really sprang, and I learned to focus on the former rather than the latter.” — Robert Rosen

On Symmetry and Asymmetry

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 informational Framework,
4) a flexible envolutional model.

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

“I slowly came to recognize that my instincts had been correct; that the computer, physical, and mathematical universes had much of value to offer me, which could not be acquired in any other way. I saw that these kind of thoughts, though nominally garbed in syllogistic and rhetorical dress, was really about patterns; you had to learn to see the patterns through the garb. That was what they called “scientific maturity”. I learned that it was from such patterns that the insights and theory really sprang, and I learned to focus on the former rather than the latter.” — David Mark Keirsey

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.
