Essay Abstract

We explain why exactly the simplified abstract scheme of reality within the standard science paradigm cannot provide the consistent picture of “truly fundamental” reality and how the unreduced, causally complete description of the latter is regained within the extended, provably complete solution to arbitrary interaction problem and the ensuing concept of universal dynamic complexity. We emphasize the practical importance of this extension for both particular problem solution and further, now basically unlimited fundamental science development (otherwise dangerously stagnating within its traditional paradigm).

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,

You are doing a very deep critical analysis of modern science and its basic problems, giving a new conception whose ideas are aimed at overcoming the crisis of understanding in fundamental science. Today, the broadest competition of ideas is needed, especially in cosmology . I have only one wish: to expand the ontological foundation of your conception. I wish success in your further research!

Regards,

Vladimir

Hello dear Andrey

It's nice to see you here again and read your fascinating article. You are set on a critical audit of some basic methodological approaches that I just welcome. I am more impressed that you see the problem in its early origin, with which the majority of advanced scientists will be very diffecult to be agree themselves. This is really difficult to do from the psychological and purely human points of view. However, you are absolutely right here and I am completely with you. This will inevitably have to be done if we really want to have a truthful and reliable science. Approximately the same thought I'm trying to bring to the reader in my work that I hope you'll look.

My best wishes to you.

Hello George,

Thank you for your positive estimate of my efforts, and I think that we do agree on the origin of modern fundamental science problems, which must be solved within a deeper insight in order to ensure further progress of fundamental knowledge.

Dear Andrei,

Here we are again all together.

I highly appreciate your beautifully written essay.

«the simplified abstract scheme of reality within the standard science paradigm cannot provide the consistent picture of “truly fundamental” reality». Great!

I hope that my modest achievements can be information for reflection for you.

Dear Vladimir,

Thank you for your support of my ideas. Me too, I find a number of general correlations between our approaches (like the principles of causality and completeness), even though many technical details in your essay seem unclear to me. In any case, it is the search for such causally complete description of reality that alone can solve modern science problems and provide the truly, objectively fundamental picture of the world.

If you are looking for another essay to read and rate in the final days of the contest, will you consider mine please? I read all essays from those who comment on my page, and if I cant rate an essay highly, then I don’t rate them at all. Infact I haven’t issued a rating lower that ten. So you have nothing to lose by having me read your essay, and everything to...

Dear Steven,

Thank you for your interest and communication. You're citing in your essay a number of general ideas, which are close to my own approach, such as complexity, "Darwinian" evolution, emergence, adaptability and (the necessity of) universality of truly fundamental knowledge. Their realisation in your description looks less clear to me and it was difficult to provide a correct total estimate (in any case, you have a nice score, which is close to saturation by the number of ratings). I leave it up to you the rating of my essay, while noting that it specifies a particular, provably universal realisation of the mentioned general principles.

Dear ANDREI P. KIRILYUK, I approve of what you have said in your essay and put 10, moreover, THE UNREDUCED dynamic reality – is a study in New Cartesian Physics is based on the principle of identity of space and matter of Descartes. According to this principle, space is matter and matter is space that is moving. Look at my essay, FQXi Fundamental in New Cartesian Physics by Dizhechko Boris Semyonovich Where I showed how radically the physics can change if it follows the principle of identity of space and matter of Descartes. I hope you will not leave without attention to this principle and appreciate good New Cartesian Physics for his radicalism

Sincerely, Dizhechko Boris Semyonovich.

Dear Boris,

Thank you for the high rating for my essay. After having a look at your work, I can say that I share the main points of your criticism of today's mainstream science framework and, similar to you, I appreciate major features of Cartesian approach and philosophy. However, I cannot say that I understand further details of the "new Cartesian physics" you propose, even though I do appreciate the general realistic character of this attempt. Therefore, I was unable to give any definite rating to your essay (as it relies essentially on those details), while noting also that it has a decent score of quasi-saturated level. It doesn't mean that your ideas seem totally wrong, and maybe further elaboration of the content and presentation could clarify the results for interested readers.

Thanks for his criticism of my essay. I understand that it was written poorly. Its main aim is to attract researchers to continue the theory of everything of Descartes’ taking into account modern achievements in physics. The principle of identity of physical space and matter allows us to extend physics to living matter. For this we need to pay attention to the fact that matter within the body is the same as outside it. Our brain creates an image of the outside world not within themselves and in the space around themselves. This image of the outside world has an active nature, as it controls the body.

New Cartesian Physics needs your support to develop further. Visit my page and give there your assessment.FQXi Fundamental in New Cartesian Physics by Dizhechko Boris Semyonovich

I wish you success! Sincerely, Boris Dizhechko
