The 4 Questions:
- Who are you?
- What did you set out to do?
- What did you find?
- How can others use that?
I am a independent “entrepreneurial researcher”, with a focus on management.
Social economist might describe it best; not as accounting, but by working with values.
I am also a family man; i lived in the East, and later came to the west; i travelled accross often.
I was born 1960, in the very industrial Ruhr area of West Germany.
Most people there had triple jobs; their life consisted of either working or sleeping.
I also have roots in the Carpathian mountains, very vast areas of nature.
They are so very different from the crowded cities.
My family came from Hungary; i had a Hungarian passport.
It was a strong difference between East and West Europe.
East was better protected, but you needed ‘contacts’ to get anything.
In the West it was about competition; you are always “on your own”.
There is also a difference in the political-social class system in the East.
It was called the “Nomenklatur”; they have privileges for travel.
The privileged were able to travel abroad, and educate their children abroad.
It was essentially the group of party members.
I changed schools from bad school to better schools.
I was good in sciences and sports;
I got interested in social systems and value processes.
Linking physics and mathematics to social process dynamics.
I do not regard people or groups as objects, or 'golems'.
Freedom of Choice is limited by physical constraints.
I studied Latin and Greek plus also Hebrew.
And got interested in the language and philosophy of its oral tradition.
This oral tradition described free will and its limitation; and the ethics involved.
Darwinism and Jewish Mysticism are similar and very different.
Darwinism looks at it from a mechanical meterial perspective.
It tends to ignore the ethical and moral perspective; allowing for misuse.
I saw too many factories, and worked in too many industries.
I decided to have a more independent life; beyond the work life.
Many people i knew lived 40 years, between 14 and 55 years of age.
Their life expectancy was low.
I realised that the best way out was to become more entrepreneurial.
The way seemed to be in micro social milieus; local economy.
Small scale is very different to the large scale.
That would be best describable in terms of mathematics.
I realised the difference between top-down and bottom-up.
This is seen also in the nature of diseases; and their cure.
There is a direct link between health in our body and society.
On the large scale, humanity has little experience with complexity.
Health, economy, science and mysticism are interlinked.
Diseases and health can be understood in terms of systems, and complexity.
Once you recognise the levels, you can see that different treatments are needed.
Without that understanding, healing cannot be administered.
In science complexity is dealt with what psychology calls Attribution.
It is possible to look at what i call spiritual physics.
Everything we do comes back to us; be it (un)conscious or not.
Even our dreams are part of that process of experiencing-doing.
A clear book on that is Road to Serfdom, by Hiyek.
He describes people as two persons.
One lives in private, another is public; they are contra-polar.
It is important to see how they complement each other.
I saw how people defended their dignity; to never give up and never give in.
The same is valid for disease: as long as you are alive you can learn.
As long as you breathe, you can develop and heal.
This applies to people, and peoples. Those too are dual/related.
Top down logic is important.
We are dealing with complexity.
We need to link the seeming opposites.
Then you can heal, by integrating the complements
2) What did you set out to explore?
It was not in one day to link science, society, healing and values.
Underlying is always a fundamental question, without fundamental answer.
Schools merely train for a vocation; repleting work force.
Higher level schools educate managers: top level schools create administrators.
Many countries now use that Prussian school systems; few people escape from that.
Education is often indoctrination, for the purpose of limitation.
The only way to get out of that is to get yourself out of that.
I did it by broadening my horizon, by adding new interests.
I am an autodidact as a result; “i had a good teacher".
I applied training methods in sports to train my mind.
In the East they use an Interval method; programmed like a robot.
In the west they use the tempo-training; based on endurance.
In that way i learned to compare training techniques, and tried them out.
In mental training you also need to perform, thus prepare and concentrate.
It requires training in methods of thinking; and social strategy.
I did a lot of mental training, in sports, uniting mind and body.
Sports also showed the difference between team sports and solo sports.
The role of motivation is different in individuals and teams.
It is a basis for starting to study/understand social systems.
Which however can again be linked to the understanding of molecules.
The understanding of people can be compared to molecular physics.
I learned physics from a good teacher; by doing exact experiments.
i realised that there is a repetition in social dynamic; a pattern.
If it repeats, than physical repetitive science applies.
In behaviourism the behaviour is regarded as a repetitive machine.
Cognitive psychology has a deeper insight; with different levels of consciousness.
You can then actually make use of different levels of consciousness.
The behaviourism model applies only to 'prisons' (conditioned environments).
It is important that you can choose; you can change/delay reflex action.
Consumerism is conditioned reflex behaviour; an economic trap, a treadmill.
Many people enter into a debt, which then determines their life from then on.
It is important to see how economy, money, determines and limits life.
To get out of t he mass hypnosis, distantiate yourself from the belief/superstitions.
It is important to understand liquidity; that what sustains economic society; not profit.
Credit is mutual trust; interest is a parasitical unhealthy, based on a deception.
Understand how the dynamics can be described in physics, and healed by the principles of healing.
It is always about ethical decisions; if not well thought out they backfire.
Too spontaneous decisions can backfire and destroy sustainability, and create disease.
The diseases in body and mind are the result from accumulated erroneous decisions.
Often we are the cause of that; even if the decision was based on being misguided.
Ethical decisions are decisions which account for the different levels/layer of complexity.
We experience that as levels of meaning, or value; not as levels of payment.
Management is about applying knowledge; knowledge is meaningful if it can be applied.
It is not enough to have 'the beauty of mathematics, in a formula; it must be able to be used.
people need to learn their own power, with the consequences; study and action.
we all need study partners, in order to learn.
There are different levels of reality/realisation.
Choose your involvement; realise what complexity you address, and that you need as much knowledge to be able to work with it; by a top-down approach.
3) What did you find?
People may want to be free, or not, but freedom of choice requires understanding complexity>
Complexity cannot be controlled; but you can communicate with it.
That will give you feedback, informing you of your own situation.
Then you can change your involvement; for different results.
This links to all levels of our being, in mind and body as individual and group.
Peter Dracher was one of the first to realise that management is about ecology of society.
He helped Ford motor company think and work in this way.
"If it is not good for the nation it is not good for Ford".
It is not enough if the learner can survive.
When the situation changes, you must adapt.
It is about understanding nature, and your nature.
You cannot separate reality from realisation.
Communication with Complexity requires beyond standard mathematics.
Goedel, von Neumann, Wiener understood that we must think in terms of systems; by cybernetics.
Mathematics is needed to address this, because language is connected to a culture and mind set.
To be able to come up with new ideas, new language is needed.
High school mathematics does not help; it is limiting.
Statistics points out the limitations.
Look for the regularity in, and between, numbers; observe patterns.
That gives a means to establish a basis for measurement.
In the technical university i was rigorously trained in research methods.
I added theories of probabilities; and group statistics; and dynamic statistics.
The statical statistic is not practical to understand what we are dealing with.
I created my own mathematical analysis, by looking at patterns of development of cultures.
I saw how ports of trade and towns became turning points for the development of cultures.
Social development shows a mathematical pattern; linking trade and culture.
Distance to other nodes of culture is always important; a geometry of organisation.
I wrote "economics as heuristics', i tested most mathematical procedures.
I saw that linear, cyclical, spiral and helical models and expanding/contracting model.
At that level, the models are so complex they can start to describe themselves.
It is at the level of conceptual mathematics; where models can create models.
That allows for reflecting on the way you do mathematics, and how you use it.
Mathematics can be used to social dynamics, healing and the energetics of money.
The 'physics of monetary systems'.
Our current system can be used for counting and accounting.
But the use of 'quantity without quality' destroys our planet.
it requires connecting text with symbols.
it requires contact with other people who understand this.
At some levels it is already possible to apply this; in healing.
It requires understanding of the underlying factor; understanding photon energy fields.
communication is life.
Realise this and bring your life to life.
Not `command and control’, but coordination and communication.
not objects, but living cells.
4) how can other use these insights
two areas are important:
1) basic life skills, and 2) management/innovation strategy
Reduce complexity to something that works
understand the barrier between your dream and reality.
Know that cells operate in circadian rhythms; rhythmic release of hormones.
Sleep is needed to produce melatonin; required for self-healing.
Every child needs to learn this, understand it and use it.
Self healing starts in yourself.
Find 1) a method, 2) tactics, and 3) strategy; plus your goal.
Steer towards a healthy life; your body is your temple, your host.
Manage by distinction between long tern needs and daily life.
It requires a strict exact daily method(ology); life conduct
This also applies to the conversation between humanity and nature.
A win-win philosophy is needed; our health and planet health are related.
At the level of humanity, anthropological/belief differences are important.
Money is not a more fundamental value, than the values of old cultures.
Social ethics are one of the 7 system barriers that play in humanity.
The different levels all have their own corresponding time scale.
This is parallel to the different rates of change in body regeneration.
Not speed of reform, but its direction is important.
In healing these principles play a role: empirical (1) rational (2) method (3).
A stimulus is related to a change in sensation, (1)
leading to a creation of an evaluation; a reflection (a meditation). (2)
then decide on a method: what are you going to do about it; what is the best interpretation. (3)
(At the 4th level: account for the context.)
"Human Photo Energetic Transduction" is a text in which i describe the human organism.
It addresses a deeper level of creation of the universe from sound; vibration.
From vibration came change in energy and time dynamic forming space.
This is the line of thinking presented by Maimonides, from Spain; a doctor.
I use his model; in deals with the basis that all of the universe is a field of vibrations.
Light is the integrative factor for the dynamic of materialisation.
Light is essential in our brain function also; regulating the regulatory system.
Much is now known about the integrative role of light in bodily health.
Light regulates the melatonin and serotonin; we need sleep to restore our health.
Light offers a transduction of energy via the optic nerve; via endocrine responses.
The old cultures already knew this, and described this.
It is up to everybody to use this.
In the top down logic you start, that changes your relationships, the groups you form part of, and humanity.
Concentrate on the purity of intent; Adamic Purity; integrity of being; as human and humanity.
