Essay Abstract

Based on the unreduced, non-perturbative solution to arbitrary interaction problem, we show that any interaction process underlying real system dynamics and object properties gives rise to irreversible time flow, universally specified evolution purpose and meaningful intentions at higher levels of universally defined dynamic complexity. The new mathematics of real-world complexity contains thus well-specified intrinsic teleology due to its rigorously derived extension with respect to usual, “goal-free” and “mindless” theory. We outline major aspects and applications of that extended, naturally teleological and causally complete science framework, including critically important problem solutions.

Author Bio

Andrei Kirilyuk is a theoretical physicist (since 1979) and Senior Researcher at the Institute of Metal Physics, Kyiv, Ukraine. He also worked in France (Paris, 1991-95). He is the author of the Universal Science of Complexity, the intrinsically unified, causally complete and problem-solving extension of conventional theories.

Dear Andrei

I have read your article. It is impressive by its professional level and style of narration. Correctly speaking, I did not understand its full content, maybe because I am not so inclined to a deeply study all the math judgments.

I prefer to examine the cause - logical side of questions first before of quantitative study.

This probably may seem as something wild, in the view of professionals. However, I gone on this way and I have opened much unexpected things, as I believe.

I am dare to offer you to check my works, not now of course, but in any good time for you - if these may seems to you interesting.

I welcome your work!

Best wishes,

Dear George,

Thank you for your interest and your positive estimate of my results. I agree with you about the importance of general logical consistency of a theory and related experimental observations as compared to purely internal rules of technical, mathematical or computational, instruments. In my case I preserve all mathematical rigour in my result derivation, but would insist on the possibility of "verbal" presentation of the same results in terms of general logic, without losing any essential details. It naturally involves the intrinsic realism of the approaches and tools used. I'm glad to see that you seem to like the same kind of causally complete knowledge and shall have a look at your work.

Dear Dr. Kirilyuk,

Please excuse me for I have no intention of disparaging in any way any part of your essay.

I merely wish to point out that “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler. Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955) Physicist & Nobel Laureate.”

Only nature could produce a reality so simple, a single cell amoeba could deal with it.

The real Universe must consist only of one unified visible infinite physical surface occurring in one infinite dimension, that am always illuminated by infinite non-surface light.

A more detailed explanation of natural reality can be found in my essay, SCORE ONE FOR SIMPLICITY. I do hope that you will read my essay and perhaps comment on its merit.

Dear Andrei,

Your goal in this essay is clear to me, it seems that we have several paralel ways of approach but here and there different conclusions. Thay=t is exactly what is steering humanity towards more understanding, nowone alone has all the wisdom.

I also hope thet you can read my essay : The Purpose of Life[link] and leave a reaction/rating

best regards and good luck

Dear Kirilyuk,

Accept my congratulations for giving us a Good essay on complex-dynamic theory of civilisation development….

You have nicely touched many points in your essay for example….

In page 1….” irreversibly flowing time, uneven change/events and purposeful evolution of the causally emerging structure…..”

In page 2…” The discovered dynamic instability of any real structure is qualitatively different from respective imitations of usual, dynamically sin-gle-valued, or unitary, theory, where different states (“multistability”) or trajectory configu-rations (“basins of attraction”) along formal-time evolution of its unique solution are but coexisting structures of this single solution, which do not give rise to genuine randomness, system change and real time flow. “

Here I want to say few words… “these irreversibly flowing time, uneven change/events and purposeful evolution of the causally emerging structure are some of the features of Dynamic Universe Model. Regarding point 2, Dynamic Universe Model is structurally and dynamically stable, when there is no uniform density… The masses don’t collapse.

Have a look at my essay which discusses another application of Dynamic Universe model and have look at its blog for other applications of Dynamic Universe Model…

Best wishes…………….

Dear Andrei Kirikyuk

I invite you and every physicist to read my work “TIME ORIGIN,DEFINITION AND EMPIRICAL MEANING FOR PHYSICISTS, Héctor Daniel Gianni ,I’m not a physicist.

How people interested in “Time” could feel about related things to the subject.

1) Intellectuals interested in Time issues usually have a nice and creative wander for the unknown.

2) They usually enjoy this wander of their searches around it.

3) For millenniums this wander has been shared by a lot of creative people around the world.

4) What if suddenly, something considered quasi impossible to be found or discovered such as “Time” definition and experimental meaning confronts them?

5) Their reaction would be like, something unbelievable,… a kind of disappointment, probably interpreted as a loss of wander…..

6) ….worst than that, if we say that what was found or discovered wasn’t a viable theory, but a proved fact.

7) Then it would become offensive to be part of the millenary problem solution, instead of being a reason for happiness and satisfaction.

8) The reader approach to the news would be paradoxically adverse.

9) Instead, I think it should be a nice welcome to discovery, to be received with opened arms and considered to be read with full attention.

11)Time “existence” is exclusive as a “measuring system”, its physical existence can’t be proved by science, as the “time system” is. Experimentally “time” is “movement”, we can prove that, showing that with clocks we measure “constant and uniform” movement and not “the so called Time”.

12)The original “time manuscript” has 23 pages, my manuscript in this contest has only 9 pages.

I share this brief with people interested in “time” and with physicists who have been in sore need of this issue for the last 50 or 60 years.

Héctor

Dear Andrei,

I find your Essay interesting and peculiar. Despite I disagree with some of your claims, I feel that some of the ideas in your Essay deserve more attention by the scientific community. Thus, I decided to give you the highest score in order to help you to better spread such ideas. Congratulations and good luck in the Contest. I hope that you will have a chance to read our Essay.

Cheers, Ch.

Dear Andrei,

You continue to work on an extremely important theme. You give deep ideas and make conclusions that will help us overcome the crisis of understanding in fundamental science through the creation of a new comprehensive picture of the world, uniform for physicists, mathematicians and musicians filled with meanings of the "LifeWorld" (E.Husserl). I give give you the highest score. I invite you to read my ideas .

Best regards,

Vladimir

Dear Andrei,

I estimate you essay exelent. Excellently written.

You are one of the few who directly answers the question put by the contest.

«We obtain the totally unified and causally complete picture of major elementary particles (in the form of complex-dynamical quantum beat processes), their fundamental interactions, intrinsic properties, quantum and relativistic behaviour»

«We then provide causally complete solutions to the problems of higher complexity sublevels of (now genuine) quantum chaos, quantum measurement and purely dynamic classicality emergence in elementary bound, closed systems like atoms, without any ambiguous decoherence by the environment.»


I wish you success in the contest.

Kind regards,

Vladimir

Thank you, Vladimir, for your high estimate of my work. A brief look at your paper here shows that there are some correlations, in the spirit of causal approach of Louis de Broglie.

Thank you, Vladimir, for your encouraging words and the high rating to my paper. I do think that today we have serious reasons to move more actively beyond the current level of knowledge, even if the majority of professional scientists would prefer to remain within the known concepts and results.
