In this essay some use of system theory terminology will be made.
For easy orientation we will often use the individual human body as a frame of reference.
The individual human body can be regarded as an isolated system . This system is composed
of many identifiable parts (organs) that can be regarded as individual systems . But they
would be sub-systems of the individual total human body. The subsystems themselves are
also composed of many subsystem (cells) that are also composed of subsystems ( e.g.
An entity considered distinguishable from its surrounding with a presumed degree of internal order and a possible interaction with that surrounding.
DEF NO 1 .
Qualities (= types of ) .
e.g. In the individual human organism consider some sensory qualities.
These could for example relate to :
Vision - Hearing - Smell - Sensibility ( e.g. for touching the skin ) .
These can be considered examples of different qualities (different senses) in the human sensory system .
It could also be argued that different species different -individual- organic systems - = different life forms - , may have (additional systems of) different qualities e.g. the ability to fly , or live under sea . . at great depth . . . (etc.) .
DEF NO 2 .
Quantities ( = degrees of ) .
The qualities we have given as an example could also be
present or impaired in different degrees .
We could have: total ( e.g. maximal ) : deafness - blindness - inability to smell anything - insensitivity to touch .
We could also have partial ( e.g. minimal ) : deafness - (etc.) , with many degrees in between .
This impairment could be present at birth or could have been acquired later in life for various reasons ( e.g. accidents, specific diseases, operations , or ageing ) .
A large number of (e.g. neuropsychological) testing procedures have been developed tot assess the deviations in qualities and quantities of human organic systems . The author is a neuropsychologist himself . He has also been battling cancer for some five years now .
DEF NO 3 .
See Google search results for : Definition chaos
e.g. 1 . A dynamic system that is extremely sensitive to its initial conditions.
DEF NO 4 .
The internal variables without which a system could not exist or continue to exist (see: stable state).
Each variable may have different values but only within a limited range.
The average value of the variable in that range is considered to be the normal value for that variable.
When considering "life systems" (organic systems) as a separate class one very important characteristic is that such systems can take "corrective action" (e.g. see : relevant cognitive arousal) when the normal value of a relevant variable is disturbed.
Please note ! : We write State with a capital when a political system is meant (more) .
A State is one example of a state .
DEF NO 5 .
Chaotic criticality :
Chaotic criticality exists when a maximal number of conditions is reached where even a minimal event will cause total system collapse .
DEF NO 6 .
Modified seventh quantum realm
The area in the mind / brain system which is dominated by the choice between impossible odds (such as conflicting primary loyalties) .
DEF NO 7 .
Search results for predictability methods
The global mind and the use of words
Globalmind definition of prediction
DEF NO 8 .
