Integral Biomathics: A Post-Newtonian View Into the Logos of Bios
Plamen L. Simeonov, Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology, July 2010

Fig. 6 illustrates the ultimate evolving model of science where the natural and the formal worlds increasingly interpenetrate to finally form a monad, the unity of both realities comprising artificial and natural systems.

The formal world represents a generalization of all models and not only the mathematical ones. It is essential, that the distinction between the formal and the natural world decreases in time, as well as the one between their driving forces, induction and resonance. Whereas induction triggers the “critical mass” of information to invoke synchronicity in the emergence of ideas, models and projects in different and often distant fields of knowledge, resonance reflects this connection in physical domain. In other words, the evolution of the two worlds, Mind and Matter, will lead to a convergent reality.

Ultimately, this development suggests one naturalworld that has been once split into an external and an internal part which are then unified again by the humanmind after having induced some changes in both spheres. Furthermore, it can be hypothesized that when the point of singularity is reached, one single state of resonance (accord) upon negentropic structures and processes will dominate over this world until the collection of critical information mass initiates another transformation in the opposite direction (towards growing entropy) or in another dimension that we cannot predict yet.

It can be speculated that some of the innate mental processes of arrows 3 and 4 on Fig.5 can be recognized and associated with the orthogonal plane of subjective perception, direct knowledge awareness and unbound understanding or satori (not shown on the figures). This is indeed an old issue, for the “mystic” experience of intuition, insight or inspiration (muse) is indisputable in art and music. The western Cartesian tradition of science has been ignoring this “detail” for four centuries.

this article is an inspiration to the world of bio-science. Integral Biomathics just may be the formal discipline which allows humanity to fully understand, and reproduce as technology, the mysterious nature of life and consciousness.

i see a lot of "theories" of questionable veracity posted on this board (no offense intended). it should be a breath of fresh air to see that there is actual progress being made toward the most important of all questions. i highly recommend reading the entire paper (starting at Section 5, page 18). you will be amazed at the seamless integration of quantum theory, mathematical biophysics, systems biology, autopoiesis, information theory, consciousness studies, cybernetics, and systemics.

"another dimension", here we come!

It is good to see some work is going on to unite all the reductionist branches of science and try and make a comprehensive and useful model of it all. It is going to take time, but the realistic aim presented does make sense.

i came across this paper while researching for a thesis i am writing about this semester.

my thesis is that the DNA is a type of "mind" of the protein. not only does the DNA preserve the linear FORM of a protein, but it also acts nonlinearly to preserve the FUNCTIONal shape of the protein. integral biomathics supports this concept very well.

there is another recent ATS topic which discusses the possibility of affecting the function and structure of DNA by using sonic vibration. Science proves DNA is Biological Internet as far out as this sounds, it is actually quite near to the truth.
