Spiritual and Scientific Principles of the "Tetrahedron Model"

Authors: John A. Gowan
Comments: 16 Pages.

The four principles of the "Tetrahedron Model" (conservation of energy, entropy, symmetry, causality) are as much "spiritual" principles of "divine law" as they are "scientific" principles of "natural law". This is another example of the convergence of physical scientific thought and metaphysical, spiritual, or religious thought, of the merging of rational and intuitive world views. The "Tetrahedron Model" represents a fundamental example and iteration of a 4x3 algorithmic hierarchy of fractal models, developed in the context and format of "General Systems". "General Systems" is a synthetic conceptual science which excels at bridging apparently disparate disciplines and world views. I will consider each of the 4 principles in turn.

Teilhard de Chardin - Prophet of the Information Age

Authors: John A. Gowan
Comments: 11 Pages.

Teilhard de Chardin's notions of the "Noosphere" and the "Omega Point" are explored in the context of current knowledge and theory, especially J.E. Lovelock's conception of "Gaia" - planet Earth as a superorganism. Space-faring humans are seen as the "seeds" or dispersal agents of Gaia's reproductive phase, carrying Earth-life into the Galaxy. "Noah's Ark" is a vision of the future, not the past.
