Methodical implications of the translational key:

The structural and functional regularities in social phenomena are similar to physical events; the human social psychology remains basically the same in all times and places, allowing for systems research into relationships and quantities invariant in time and space.

The universe is a perfect accounting system, with a natural vibratory fabric that generates seemingly random effects, i.e. the successive values of almost all periodic wave functions are regularly distributed, e.g. human groups and organizations react in the same way, somewhat wave-like by invariant effects, to similar complex sequences of events.

Theoretical reasoning (hypotheses/calculation) and empirical evidence (data/model) can reduce and deduce this regularities by a top-down logic. Sherlock Holmes states to Dr.Watson:  When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth; Ockham’s  razor also applies: “pluralitas non est ponenda sine necessitate”.

Financial Management

An exact example, concerning quantification, of mass behaviour is money and stock market management in the globalized village and its wave effects on economic investment/innovation/destruction. Quantifying diseases in mental and bodily health is another measurement field of pattern recognition, from the natural/social systems view. This translational key may facilitate the systems understanding of the levels of complexity involved, concerning the matter of informed living systems and knowledge processing.
