How to Really Solve the Mind-Body Problem (5)

Abstract: The complex dimension has two axes: horizontal complexion —our classic systems of interacting elements and their models— and vertical complexion —overlapping systems, an elementary constituting a superior. A ‘platist’ trend sees this vertical axis as an illusion. I show that it is in fact a dualistic dead end excluding our mind. The metaphor of … Read more

The platist school

The way in which humans have theorized the relationship between matter and their mind is divided into three great eras: incompatibility, assimilation, coincidence. 1st era: incompatibility The contrast between material and spiritual is an evidence recognized since the dawn of humanity. The explanations provided during the first era, until the middle of the twentieth century, … Read more

Nexialism: definition

A nexialist is a specialist in transdisciplinarity. A non-specialist in fact. His knowledge has no borders. On the contrary, he must explore all areas, without trying to push his expertise in any. This extra time would be missing from his other explorations. And it usually arrives in less safe terrain. The nexialist invents bridges. His … Read more

The complex dimension in mathematics

Gottlob Frege and Bertrand Russel André Deledicq and Mickaël Launay tell in Dictionnaire amoureux des mathématiques how Frege saw his beautiful set theory dynamited by a seemingly innocuous firecracker, posed by Russel. The year is 1902. Logicians like Frege try to make sets the fundamental core on which to build all mathematics. Arithmetic operations thus … Read more

The Third Accomplice

A very real emergence The Third Accomplice is an expression that I use to symbolize the emergence formed by a set of elements in close relation. All formed by the parties. Information with relative independence, which is binding on the parties. This notion is universal. It applies to the couple (Third associated with the two … Read more

How to get into the complex dimension

Experimenting with fundamental questions To understand life, consciousness, to know if Gaia is a living organism, all these difficult questions require first to know what complexity is. Complexity is the entanglement of simple behaviors that can take on a complicated appearance if you don’t know how to spot them. Complex entanglement is not just any … Read more

Definition: surimposition

Abstract: In complexity, levels of information pile up. Their independence is relative. The term ‘adding’ levels overemphasizes discontinuity, while the term ‘deepening’ information overemphasizes continuity. The neologism “surimposing” information accounts for this dependence of the upper level on the lower, while giving it its own meaning.

Moral (3): depth of information – The complex dimension

Evolution and depth of information Have you understood how Surimposium works? Any concept explanation can be deepened towards the bottom of the complex dimension. What do we find in descending the origin of morality in this way? Some authors have ventured there: John Mayfield, Jean-Paul Delayahe. They argue that evolution in biology is an increase … Read more

Complexity explodes in neural networks

Some neologisms I call Diversium reality as a self-organized structure (self-organization diversifies reality as its complexity increases). We know several sections with this complex dimension. From the elementary to the sophisticated, I call them: Quantum (quantum vacuum > subatomic particles), Matterium (atoms > neurons), Stratium (synchronous neural group > self-awareness), Societarium (consciousness of others > … Read more

Genomium: The genome as a complex attractor

Complex attractors ground levels of reality In Surimposium I present the complexity of reality as an independent dimension. Just as 3D space defines points around which material objects orbit, the complex dimension is endowed with attractors melting levels of reality, around which complex entities gravitate. Sometimes the level is rigorously defined and all entities are … Read more
