Example text

It is a truism that the physical meaning of each symbol contained in any principles of physics has to be specified before the theory can be applied in practice” (Yourgrau and Mandelstam, 1955, p. 139). The fact that the physical meaning of action is unknown presents a second inconsistency. Indeed, the same authors Yourgrau and Mandelstam also acknowledge – on their next page! , p. 140). The third difficulty is that the actual meaning of physical action has fundamental biological meaning. “The computation of the action is similar to that done by an accountant determining the total profit of a business for any given production strategy.

The fundamental communal spheres of the actions of the self include the sphere of our cells, of our individual organism, of our family, nation, of mankind, of the terrestrial biosphere, of the cosmic biosphere (Grandpierre, 2004, 2011c). This means that natural psychological behavior is that which selects contexts that correspond to the principle of greatest happiness for all these scales and communal spheres: cell, individual, family, nation, race, biosphere, and the cosmic communion of all living beings.

From our brief inquiry we may state that the human mind or pure consciousness – or the living agent – is not a self-instituted independent entity. Being an integral functional processor of life, it is modeled by the logos, it having attained this level of constructivism upon the basis of the rules, the prerequisites of the logos, the furthest architectonic of life. This so powerful mind, the center of our world, is but transcendentally positioned within this dynamic network of life preordained by the forces, laws, and flow of the logos.
