7 Day5 commonBefore us we have the process of evolution of the following sciences as a basis for the future.
The four basic sciences:
1. Mathematics - Logic and Model Theory
2. Physics
3. Cybernetics and Information Theory
4. Psychology.

These are the great heritage from the past. Chemistry, physical chemistry, biochemistry, biotechnology, biophysics, genetics, biology, microbiology, virology, cell science, histology, and others are products of these basic sciences. Ecology is a synthesis of many of these sciences.

We can also turn to sciences of man, as, for example, anthropology or futurology and eschatology, economics, the study of cultures, history, political science, sociology, communications science, linguistics, and the study of religions. There are also the arts, technological sciences, management sciences, law, and so on.

Among all these systems there is no adequate organic synthesis, no effective unity. In addition, new theories and sciences are needed to direct thought towards need and the amelioration of the world, which will make knowledge a political and social movement - a position taken up by Brecht.

We would propose that importance should be attached to:

Macrocosmic research, in cosmology; that the foundations should be laid for a theory of a macrobiological approach and that research should be undertaken into the functionability and progress of species.

● Research into the phenomenon of the organism in all its forms, what we could call Organismology.

● Research into Incompatibility - Transcendence and its Evolutionary Capacity for Synthesis on the basis of both the Completeness Theorem and Disaster Theory- not only with theoretical considerations in the perception of structures.

● The development of a meta-ecological approach, a biochemistry and an ecology of the best, that is, together with a new sensibility. What is needed is an approach of superimposition of open organicity on the microchemical range. The body, in whatever dimension and structure, must become a vehicle of reflectiveness and new concepts. The organic genius of life must become a value greater than the greatest genius of the machine. It must be made clear that there is no zero value for life.

● The development of the science of Synthesis. It would be a mistake for these proposals to advance by way of fission. This renders necessary the science of Synthesis and does not apply only to the New Sciences, but to the old as well. While biology appears incapable of contemplating itself in macrocosmic terms, physics speaks of the superparticle, of the 'Human Principle' and scientists, such as Léon Brillouin or De Broglie have regarded biological laws as broader than those of physics.

● The development of isomorphisms between fundamental concepts, between the sciences - so that we shall see, for example, in the century of planeticism and of the grammar of information, concepts of synthesis, such as Planetic Genetics or Planetic Genes taking on flesh and blood.

● The development of Biosemantics as a first answer to informatics, technology, development, and consumer society. Biosemantics we consider to be the collecting together from life of the meanings of humanity and planetic evolution. Now that information science is in an anarchic and - psychologically - barbarous phase, we must appreciate the hierarchy of semantics of information and defend ourselves against entropic equivalence and its thermodynamic degradation. We shall regard as the most important of all information the sensibility of no-harm and the brotherhood of being. Without this information, organic information will be destroyed. We need a world-wide information network and law as to this information of no-harm. The significance of information is more important than information itself. On this apprehension of no-harm, the Principle of Freedom must be built and be understood in proportion to the importance of the individual within universal importance. Let us finish with the presences of zero lying further than zero.

● The development of the science of Holism. In all probability, we live in a field of synthesis of Holoparticles which renders the scale of evolution dependent on the infinitesimal calculus (Thomas’ calculus), transcendence, and the more perfect level as opposed to the imperfect.

● The development of concepts which will serve as starting-points for intellectual well-being and meditation. We must speak of a meta-technological direction of life, of meta-artefact - a 'meta-' which is not chronological but evolutionary.

What can we understand as being meta-life or meta-consciousness or meta-body? Certainly, a discipline is needed in the use of neologisms, so that they do not become a field of release for the impasse which action introduces into thought. These terms can be founded upon the concept of the synthesis of death and life, on the concept of the necessity of their co-existence, or on the concept of meta-information. Freud already spoke of meta-psychology. In the same way, the concepts of meta-society and meta-history must be firmly established.

● The development of the science of Esoterism. A cornerstone for this new process of evolution of the intellect is what we would define as Esoterism. Inwardness, internalisation, and detachment as processes of freedom and intergralisation and sustainability are of consequence. Esoterism is placing above all things of inwardness – inner and qualitative dimensional broadening in everything. This can be achieved as an approach to and proposal for structures for the demechanisation in the perception of beings. Esoterism of semiotics is an evolution.

Esoterism passes through the analytic type, beyond the plural type, and even beyond the group type. There are two components: the will for Dream, which we contrast with Nietzsche's will for power, and the body.

● The development of a New Sensibility. This new sensibility, which we have previously defined as a prerequisite, will be derived from a new quality and clear definition of this will and of the body. In fact, for better or worse, the key to the world is not only organisational, but above all, psychological. What is needed immediately is another sensibility between the genders, towards the nude, towards machines, money, nature, and so on. The New Sensibility will liberate the creative possibilities from the prison of the accounting-office and dependent desires.

Epilogue

Many patterns can be found for this step to be taken, but the great difficulty lies in the achievement of the sensibility-based attraction of mankind to creative liberation. Both the New Sensibility and the New Sciences should converge with New Art.


Ioannis Zisis, writer


The above text is part of the essay
ENVIRONMENTAL THEORY AS A BASIS FOR A HOLISTIC, SYNTHESIS, AND PLANETIC SCIENCE deals with the need for there to be New Sciences, with different characteristics. The alienation of knowledge from the life of the scientist, the expropriation of its use in society because of the alienation of people and economic and political vested interests, as well as the deficit in knowledge on matters concerning the modern world impose upon us the formulation of the proposal for the development of those New Sciences which will bridge the gap between the alienation of technologies and the psychic depth of life and the human Being.

The essay will be published in stages. We believe that by the present series of publications we are contributing to the dialogue on a quest for a sustainable civilisation, looking to the future.
