Surimposium is a general theory of reality. Described in summary or in detail French / English in the books listed in the ‘Versions’ tab. Theory of everything? This claim immediately arouses your distrust, and rightly so. Gurus bloom in such rich soil. But Surimposium,before shedding new light on reality, is concerned with how our mind views it. Priority way of thinking over theory. The acquisition of the complex way of thinking alone is worth the effort of reading. Self-observation climbs a little higher. Whether you are a philosopher, scientist, holistic, skeptic, you will better understand why you are.
The closest reference to this innovative way of thinking is ‘nexialism‘, a term coined by the writer A.E. Van Vogt to designate a transdisciplinary thinker, who succeeds in merging the different sciences to get out of conceptual impasses. The nexialist is a specialist in complexity, who takes no philosophical or scientific postulate for granted.
When the blog tackles a actuality topic, it is not an opinion blog, but about opinions. Mine is mainly to point out when another is false, and why. I start from the roots of the problem but above all I use this universal method, the UniPhiM. Integrating scientific and epistemic perspectives, it makes them coincide on each subject. It allows you to get by even when you are not an expert. Better off, often. The expert has the handicap of being focused on her case. She makes herself the herald of a model. But how does it fit into a more comprehensive perspective? This is what the UniPhiM examines. Does its double look —the philosopher is fundamentally a knowledge drunk— manage to stabilize?
There is nothing totalitarian about UniPhiM. Its peremptory bearing comes from its ability to deconstruct many interpretations, to show that very few coincide, and that one must be wary of one’s personal certainties. The guiding idea is to specify the right opinion by surrounding it with a cloud of errors. The more we move supposedly correct opinions into the ‘error’ category, the more we thicken this cloud and the exact center emerges…

The investigation starts from the recognition of a complex order and places two actors at its extremes: the real and the spirit. We mentally model these actors as non-self and self. The two examine each other. This is the definition of the double look, the object of the first chapter.
These representations operating entirely in the mind, it is he that I examine in priority in the second chapter. Stratium is a model of the self-organized mind. It must satisfy the double look, epistemic privileged in philosophy and ontological in neuroscience. I compare it to other models of the psyche and show how it alone solves the ‘difficult problem’ of the phenomenon of consciousness.
The third chapter looks at our conceptual foundations: individuation, interaction, representation, error, order and information, certainty and uncertainty. Each concept is often adorned with different names by the double look, requiring their attachment. Or on the contrary the concept is monolithic and deserves its duplication by this same look.
The fourth chapter continues the fundamental investigation with systemic, self-organization and emergence. History of emergingism, up to its contemporary vision: emergent causality does not arise from nothingness but from unmodeled aspects of initial conditions and approximations in the delimitation of a system.
The ontological reality of emergence is the subject of the fifth chapter. There are causal breaks in topology, phase transitions, thermodynamics, quantum decoherence. Simultaneously transcendental phenomena such as critical point and renormalization appear. I will show how causal breaks are concealed in a simple sign ‘=’. The notions of entropy and energy are deciphered. We will witness a real epistemic reversal of ontological information.
The sixth chapter reveals the complex dimension. Not just a plan of juxtaposed systems but a vertical hierarchy bringing an additional dimension to reality. The double look is inscribed in reality. A representation is no longer virtual but real, even in matter. Surimposium defines entirely new principles: overimposition of information levels, complex attractors, local frameworks replacing the general spatio-temporal framework, which becomes the overtaxation of local levels. Hypothesis of the individuation-collectivization conflict (I am/I am part) as a transcendental principle in this dimension.
The seventh chapter looks for a metalanguage for the complex dimension. Investigation of the hierarchy of mathematical language and the possibility of metamathematics. The most mysterious of concepts is addressed: time. The property of time as a sequence is given back to each complex level. The problems arising from the comparison of times dissolve. The phenomenon of consciousness is part of a temporality emerging from the overimposition of its constituent interactions. Does a course of time animate reality or not? This potential tension is no longer necessary with the complex dimension. Finally it is possible to reconcile continuity and discontinuity with the double look, ontological continuity and discontinuity of representation, both as realistic as each other.
I conclude on the different sections of the complex dimension, which I have called Quantum Materium Stratium Societarium,within diversium: the self-organized reality, from the apparent uniformity of quantons to the diversity of consciousnesses.
uses the double look to deal with current topics in their complex dimension. Test bench of existing opinions rather than personal opinion, even if I let myself go like any blogger to identity preferences. How do you know if the right balance is found? Ask your interlocutor to support the contrary opinion. A good article is a dialogue. But should he conclude with the same openness that he started? Some opinions are fatal. Even lethal. I will oscillate according to the subjects between mediation and assumed paternalism. Your fate matters to the doctor even when your comments are unwelcome.
Take this path to understanding the theory:
What is a philosophical system? Are we building new ones today? How to find one’s bearings in the ambient discourse. Why do we prefer science, religion or philosophy? The need for a unifying system.
How reality is constituted and how it appears: Two directions of look, coming from “what is organized” and “what is observing”.
Is there a true reality? Even knowing that our reality is personal, we experience it as unique. Let us understand better what reality in itself can be by surrounding it with the cloud of those of our fellow human beings.
If there is complexity, how can thought capture it, structure it? Vertical thinking, a new mental dimension.
Define and explain the complex dimension and the living using the notion of integrated information.
Surimposition is one of the major concepts of Surimposium. It is defined by the existence, in the same thing, of several separate but indissoluble levels of information. Hierarchy of relative independences. On the other hand, the relations between levels take place in two radically independent directions, the importance of which cannot be measured by the yardstick of the other.
How a fundamentally indeterminate reality becomes our determined observations, through a change of perspective.
‘Stratium’ is an innovative theory of mind that combines neural networks with consciousness, without any reductionism. It focuses on the hierarchical rather than anatomical functioning of the brain.
Surimposium has all subjects rewritten. Here is an example with cancer, a disease explained by a loss of complexity in cellular organization. Disappearance of the code ensuring cooperation in the organism and return of the cells to their primitive state, colonies of bacteria seeking to multiply as long as there are resources.
