Does an Organized Energetic System That Has Clinical Applications Exist in the Human Body?

Although biochemical and physiological studies have provided insight into some of the biological effects of acupuncture, acupuncture practice is based on a very different model of energy balance. This theory might or might not provide new insights to medical research, but it deserves further attention because of its potential for elucidating the basis of acupuncture.

In response to this question, we present an introduction to the work of Dr. Maurice Mussat. His work, the Energetics of Living Systems (S.E.A.), proposes an analytical matrix to model a logical process that simulates the structuralization of biology.

Attempts have been made recently to structuralize biology. Living systems are by their nature defined in a dynamic sense. Hence, one should study life-forms not only by their elements of matter, but also by their energetic and evolutionary processes. The question of the logical nature and the systematization of the process of observable events-i.e., events that can be observed directly-in evolution has been raised recently in a biological context.(1) In line with this concept, we propose a matrix that graphically represents the geometric projection of a solution of the complex holonomic equation of transformation, defined in terms of energy, matter, and evolution by which biology can be structuralized. As illustrated in the works of Dr. Maurice Mussat, this type of matrix permits a deeper understanding of biological systems by integrating diffuse information into clear patterns. It is a way to express complex ideas of biology visually, and thereby make them more accessible to analysis and verification.

This work is a prolegomenon to investigations into the structuring of data obtained by, but not limited to, various fields of medicine, with the goal of integrating them into a general coherent and logical operational model that will help define a complex ordering system.

It appears that the only element of this newly acquired knowledge that is lacking is its integration into a general understanding of Nature. Relevant models of such integration have been published recently. Mussat's model, then, is intended to be used as a tool for the study of ordering and organizing life events, and is also an attempt to achieve a better understanding of their nature.

This paper is an abridgment of S.E.A. as it would be impossible to derive all the laws here. It is divided into two sections. Section I is a short presentation of S.E.A. and Section II is a condensed overview of the basic Laws of S.E.A.

Section I

1. Place and Role of Energetics of Living Systems in Modern Sciences

An evaluation of the place of Energetics of Living Systems in the field of contemporary scientific works cannot occur without an evaluation of a deep mutation that has occurred in contemporary scientific thought and methodology.

This task is complex, because this mutation occurs most often without the knowledge of the scientists, who having set out from the internal logic of their investigation find themselves in another- unknown-field.

Systems Theory, which came from cybernetic research and from theory on automatons around the middle of the century, has given researchers of various disciplines an operative working tool.

Systems theory was proposed in the 1940's by the biologist Ludwig von Bertalanffy (General Systems Theory, 1968), and furthered by Ross Ashby (Introduction to Cybernetics, 1956). von Bertalanffy was both reacting against rEducationism and attempting to revive the unity of science. He emphasized that real systems are open to, and interact with, their environments, and that they can acquire qualitatively new properties through emergence, resulting in continual evolution. Rather than reducing an entity (e.g. the human body) to the properties of its parts or elements (e.g. organs or cells), systems theory focuses on the arrangement of and relations between the parts that connect them into a whole (cf. holism). This particular organization determines a system, which is independent of the concrete substance of the elements (e.g. particles, cells, transistors, people, etc). Thus, the same concepts and principles of organization underlie the different disciplines (physics, biology, technology, sociology, etc.), providing a basis for their unification. Systems concepts include: system-environment boundary, input, output, process, state, hierarchy, goal-directedness, and information.

The developments of systems theory are diverse (Klir, Facets of Systems Science, 1991), including conceptual foundations and philosophy (e.g. the philosophies of Bunge, Bahm and Laszlo); mathematical modeling and information theory (e.g. the work of Mesarovic and Klir); and practical applications. Mathematical systems theory arose from the development of isomorphies between the models of elecenterical circuits and other systems. Applications include engineering, computing, ecology, management, and family psychotherapy. Systems analysis, developed independently of systems theory, applies systems principles to aid a decision-maker with problems of identifying, reconstructing, optimizing, and controlling a system (usually a socio-technical organization), while taking into account multiple objectives, constraints and resources. It aims to specify possible courses of action, together with their risks, costs and benefits. Systems theory is closely connected to cybernetics, and also to system dynamics, which models changes in a network of coupled variables (e.g. the world dynamics models of Jay Forrester and the Club of Rome). Related ideas are used in the emerging 'sciences of complexity', studying self-organization and heterogeneous networks of interacting actors, and associated domains such as far-from-equilibrium thermodynamics, chaotic dynamics, artificial life, artificial intelligence, neural networks, and computer modeling and simulation.

However, if Systems theory allows for a certain comprehension in biology, for example, of the structural connections regulating the relations between each level of biological organization, it does not allow for the explanation of the functional dynamism and synergy of these interrelationships, nor their evolution and transformation.

R. Thom puts forth this question in Morphogenesis and Structural Stability by suggesting a model for the mathematical interpretation of the process of morphological transformation that starts with the mere potential of an embryo. This is the first attempt to apply a nonstatistical and nonprobabilistic mathematics to biology.

In this we see that a scientific model of a holistic approach to living systems might be defined.

This is in fact the path that Maurice Mussat implicitly took while looking for the resolution of a biophysics problem linked to his professional identity as an elecenteroradiologist, a path that led him to confront ancient Chinese medicine. In fact, he discovered the path to the answer in an acupuncture book.

Up until then, Mussat's methodology was that of a physician formed in the classical academic method: analytical, rEducationist, experimental and clinical. No esoteric or philosophical curiosity contaminated his personal process.

The only question left was that necessary link between the medical specialties which would delineate the nteractions between physiological systems, and which would help explain, for instance, the reason for preferential targets of metastases in some cancers as a function of their original localization.

Accordingly, Mussat did not hesitate to disembark one day on the entirely new ground of acupuncture, despite the risks of such an adventure in a sector still considered highly suspect by the medical establishment. This led him to a true thought mutation, wherein a classical physician changes his outlook on the genesis of diseases and of physiological causality, by discovering (rediscovering, perhaps) a model that explains by function and operation the events that synergistically link the various levels of organization of the living systems-from the cell to the environmental niche-a model that realizes the singularity of each individual.

The model suggested by Mussat allows us to go beyond this opposition-that is, the opposition between analytical thought and finalist thought, as in Leibnitz/Descartes-by defining the complementary link between causalist logic, which rationally describes the physiological and biological phenomena, and ensemblist logic, which considers the subsystems in their reciprocal and simultaneous relations.

2. Brief Overview (Fig. 1.1)

We must take the point of view of modern and scientific methodology.

Faced with the considerable and growing complexity of the knowledge of physiological and pathological mechanisms, we are led to two options:

a. We can go deeper and deeper into the maze of the discoveries and mechanisms. In this case, we must realize the impossibility of knowing everything. This infers more and more sectors of specialization.

b. Or, we can adopt a new analytical position that differs radically from Cartesian thought.

This certainly does not mean that "what was true once is not true anymore." To the contrary, the established and verified data constitute a basis that is essential, fundamental, and indispensable.

But it is the thought methodology that must be reviewed. This is not specific to medicine; it involves scientific knowledge in general.

We must consider the human being as an orderly energetic system comprised of subsystems that are all logically correlated. The concept of the human being must even be broadened to that of a living system, which answers to the thermodynamic definition of an open system. Therefore, it is defined by, conditioned by, and dependant on information that comes from its surroundings, which it metabolizes, and then restitutes under one form or another. We find food, air, and light among the information that enters a living system.

This implies two conjoint coordinate systems: the universe and time.

This living system is made coherent and held together by internal laws. It is a system containing subsystems that are all in correlation.

The exterior informative system, defined as a Universe and referenced to time, determines eight states, and eight only. These states are translated into binary coding (0 and 1). Each one of them represents a distinct relationship between energy, matter, and movement.

These three elements are themselves three states of the same concept: Energy.

It is thus about binary combinations in triplets. These combinations are designated as trigrams. These eight state-trigrams lead to a particular matrix, a graphic disposition admitting one solution only. This graphic disposition is none other than a special equation signifying the "continuous variation of the continuous relation between energy, matter and movement in a time continuum."

This matrix is called Graph 1. Each of its constitutive state-trigrams is in relation to the seven others according to specific and logical laws (symmetry, reverse, complementarity, transformation, etc.).

It can be diagrammed in the form of a circular and oriented graph holding the eight state-trigrams in a regular distribution.

This equation leads to internal laws connecting one to the others and leading to laws that are those of a living system.

In this schematic way, we may note as the analysis begins, the example of four vital nucleotides (adenine, guanine, cytosine and thymine), of the essential lipids and sugars, and so forth. (2),(3)

Graph 1 leads to a second graph, Graph 2. This second graph results from the laws of complementarities, which give one solution only (the notion of entropy appears here).

It is also demonstrated that the internal schematics of a living system are determined by the interactions and the interrelations between Graph 1 and Graph 2.

This leads us to a whole chain of logical series that explain all we know to date of the whole physiology and the whole pathology.

These logical series are, in short, ordered systems where each element is one of the trigrams. Each one of these trigrams, as well as the interactions of its group, can be identified with a physiological system.

The living system is thus constituted by the same states as those of its environment coordinate system. It is the intercombinations that define the life-phenomenon.

These various states, the trigrams, form concepts that are logically linked and logically determined for each one of them.

For example, the concept of blood is linked to the concept joining spleen and respiration. This group is represented by the triplet 001 and corresponds to the trigram 001 (4). In this way, each trigram, or group of trigrams, identifies sectors and systems of physiology.

The determination of the various trigrammatic identifications obeys strict logical laws. We obtain in this way a distribution of the physiological and biological systems, as well as pathological systems, of which the results parallel modern knowledge precisely, and even indicate some avenues of research.

All these interactions, interrelations, and logical sequences lead to another fundamental equation that signifies the coherence and the internal regulation of the living system. This equation is referred to as the pentacoordination. This equation is at the same time geometric and ensemblist.

The pentacoordination constitutes a fundamental law of living systems, and its various internal mechanisms allow an understanding of the origins of numerous physiological and pathological interrelations.

For example, here we can find an explanation of neuromodulators, some endocrine aspects, sleep, the sodium pump, etc.

Another example is that of the phenomenon of somatization from an emotional perturbation, which can be traced and linked to parallel biological data.

Figure 1.1

3. A New Way of Thinking

A singular characteristic of Energetics is that it demonstrates that we must think differently about the life-phenomenon. We must learn to think in terms of systems and not of visceral organs. The life-phenomenon appears then as being a state, a moment, of the universal energetic organization referential to time.

An analysis of this new way of thinking can encompass many technologies, mathematical as well as purely hermodynamic. But this is not necessary. Propositional logic is very close to it. This can point us directly toward the ensemblist laws.

Since this thought technology is new, one of the most important problems to resolve is a problem of semantics. The language of our discussion is sometimes difficult and will likely call for revision as S.E.A. evolves.


The living system, the living whole, appears to be entirely subjected to intricate coordinate systems, to laws, to logical sequences, to continuous complementary states and transformations.


4. S.E.A. and Traditional Chinese Medicine

One application of S.E.A. is to reveal a new way of approaching physiology. The particular utility of this model is the capability of diagramming in its entirety the whole physiological system used throughout the history of Traditional Chinese Medicine (T.C.M.). The study of T.C.M. will divulge intricate physiological systems that rest on several models. Until now, these models appeared more as emerging either from postulates or from centuries of accumulated clinical experience. The rationale that would explain them and link them into a coherent whole was missing.
The introduction of the works of Kiiko Mastumoto(5) and Yoshio Manaka(6) alone, have made significant contributions toward integrating contemporary innovations with traditional ones. These integrative techniques are now part of the international body of knowledge representing Chinese Medicine and acupuncture. In addition, the work of these two authors has focused attention on the importance and value of emerging scientific systems in furthering an understanding of the development of the original systems of TCM. The system described by Manaka adds another dimension to this effort of integration by providing a model that integrates traditional data and contemporary development. This system has been accepted and practiced by a wide community of acupuncture practitioners. Finally, S.E.A. adds a dimension without precedence in providing not only a rediscovery of all laws of T.C.M., but also an explanation of them that can provide a bridge to contemporary ideas of physiology.

5. S.E.A. as a Deciphering Tool

S.E.A. not only deciphers and explains traditional Chinese physiology, its properties of analysis that explain events that link the various levels of organization of the living systems synergistically, from the cell to the environmental niche, also lead to further explorations. One of them is a way of looking at one of the fundamental works of Chinese literature, the I Jing. Through S.E.A., the I Jing can be discussed and understood anew as a logical system with parallels in Western thought. Figure 1.2. reproduces one of the ancient approaches to the inherent order of the I Jing. An analytical approach to this figure according to S.E.A. permits the logical and rational rearrangement of the trigrams.

6. Contemporary Developments

Being coherent and essentially dynamic, S.E.A. evolves from a central body of thought, the trunk, perhaps, if you choose to visualize a tree, with branches flowing off into several directions, depending on the angle of approach adopted. As briefly illustrated below, S.E.A. finds applications in fundamental sciences, in fundamental genetics, in clinical approaches, in social organizations, and in fundamental research.

6.1. Fundamental Sciences

The laws of Energetics also reveal the inevitableness of some chapters of physiology and biology.

For example, the Energetic pathology explains and demonstrates some links that are known empirically in modern medicine, such as the clinical relation between angina, the kidney, articular reaction, and the heart.

Another example, linking the clinical and the biological, is that of the function of the thyroid. It is signified and studied by the relative variations of T3 - T4 - TSH - cholesterol and reflex tests. The pentacoordination reveals these interrelations and links them precisely to clinical observations. We can cite the main laws of endocrinology, such as the notions of receptor-receptor, sites, and targets, actions-reactions, and so on.

Likewise, the main mechanisms of immunology can also be described, such as the notion of complement, with its two pathways of activation, the notion of compatibility-incompatibility, the two defense systems through the T cells (001 group) and the B cells (110 group), etc.

We must note in reference to immunology that we can link it to a system specific to acupuncture, called triple heater by practitioners; as well as other aspects of acupuncture.

6.2. Genetics (Fig. 1.3)

Following strictly the processes of S.E.A. and its laws, Mussat does not hesitate to apply its implications to the fundamentals of genetics.(7) (These implications appear to be valid enough for universities around the world to start an investigation. Should they turn to be correct, they may well be as revolutionary as the introduction of the double helix was several decades ago.) The approach suggested is one where no chemical aspect is taken into consideration, but one where all the mechanisms rest upon dynamic and symmetrical interactions. Outcomes of this innovative analysis lead, to give one example, to the grouping of proteins in arborescent physiological families, which is to say belonging to a same physiological system, with the notion of a dominant nucleotide, the one most present in the family of lineage, and the one that will impose its influence. Biologists will only observe its effect: the mutation.


Figure 1.3 (back)

6.3. Clinical Applications

Using the integrated model of traditional and modern physiologies, this system, because of the rational integration of the subunits, allows logical and intelligent therapeutic developments that actually match and explain ancient acupuncture formulae as well as new ones based on intelligent programming. These therapeutics expand to innovative ways to interpret and use blood and urine tests (i.e., relative concentrations of basic elecenterolytes) or dynamic use of allopathic drugs and complementary drugs (i.e., homeopathic components, herbs, etc.).

6.4. Organizational Applications

New approaches in dynamic physiology and in applications stemming from dynamic genetics may lead to further branches evolving from S.E.. Now in the early stages of consideration by researchers, new ways of looking at the structure of social organization-both in its dynamics and its philogical developments.

6.5. Open Research

S.E.A. is a new branch of science and research, at the very beginning only. As an integrated system, it leads to a wide variety of investigations, as in endocrinology, and even new ways to understand and use various forms of manual therapies (e.g., myofascial therapy).

Ongoing research is being led in various aspects of S.E.. Among those, we find the research of Dr. Maurice Mussat (Paris, France) in fundamental genetics; the work of Dr. Amalta Pieve (Viareggio, Italy) on vitamins and supplements; the works of Dr. Gasteuil (Bordeaux, France) and Dr. Mesrine (Strasbourg, France) in homeopathy and the work of Eric Serejski and Dr. He (MD, USA) on phytotherapy and on functional diseases.


Section 2

1. Graph 1

1. Parameters

The Universe can be considered as a sphere in continuous expansion responding to the principles of thermodynamics and holding three related parameters: (1) Energy, (2) Structure, and (3) Evolution. The concept of energy includes all known forms within the limits of our present understanding (i.e., thermal, mechanical, and elecenteromagnetic) as well as forms beyond our means of perception. The conceptual notion of structure incorporates all possible material forms and the connection between matter and energy is an established fact: matter is the organized support of energy. Evolution is characterized by definition by the observation of a transition (or passage) of a structure evolving in any system. Since no structure composing our Universe is motionless, it is acceptable to say that all transitions from one state to another in any system constitute an evolution (i.e., mechanical movement, chemical reaction).

A common reference, Time, is used for the description of the evolutionary relationship between these three concepts. Time is defined as being an infinitesimally continuous and unidirectionally incremental. Since Time is-by its nature-of continuous addition, it cannot stop, and changes in time are of two types, either acceleration or nonacceleration. The former is correlated to a signal and is notified by the symbol 1 while the latter, corresponding to a form of constant velocity, is equivalent to a non-signal and is indicated by the symbol 0. Here, the fundamental notion of Symmetry appears which is, with the notion of Order, one of the keys to Energetics of Living Systems.

It is now feasible to gather the three concept-components under the notion of a conceptual object, moving along Time. Accordingly, this observation allows the determination of possible conjugated variations that number 23 or 8 combinations, and 8 only. In binary language, the passage of one state to the other is written as the triplets 000, 001, 010, 100, 101, 110, 111 (and in a direction following the natural order of numbers and conforming to Time). (See Fig. 1.) Another notation uses a graphical representation whereby acceleration, or (1), is denoted by a line ( -- ) and non-acceleration by a broken line (-- --). Henceforth, the system of equivalence for the three parameters is as follows, with a referential reading from bottom to top:

000 = 0, 001 = 1, 010 = 2, 011 = 3, 100 = 4, 101 = 5, 110 = 6, 111 = 7.

Immediately, several characteristics appear:

-Two states are particular (or limit or critical): When the three components are simultaneously in the state of non-signal (or 0 or 0) and in the state of signal (or 1 or 7).


-Two symmetrical families emerge, consisting of four terms each where the center of symmetry is formed by the couple 011 (011)/100 (100). In addition, this couple is characterized by the two only Contrary and Conjoint values. All other values are distant. The variation is regular from 000 to 111, and it is possible to differentiate these two families with the first one (going from 000 to 011) as being designated Negative relative to the second family, designated Positive.


Fig. 2.1 Components along time (graphic)


2. Graphical Representation


The model above, linear, is convenient in that it allows an apparition of the properties that it expresses: Symmetry, with the center of symmetry consisting of the 011/100 couple, and the relative polarity of each family, as well as the notion of order. However, the terrestrial observer will observe all possibilities of space, which is to say a Sphere. Consequently, the true model must be spherical and not linear and the orthogonal projection of the sphere, the circle, will be used as a graphical representation of the binary triplet configuration.


3. The Circular Orientation

The circular representation of this continuous, sinusoidal variation of the vector time on a sphere presents several problems:

The circle must be oriented (Fig. 2.2). The orientation will be cardinal and chosen as a function of the sun in its apparent movement, from left to right, or from East to West. The point of highest energy will then naturally be the South where 111, the binary triplet having the highest apparent potential will be positioned. This point determines its symmetry in the North, the point of lowest energy where 000, the binary triplet of lowest apparent potential, will be positioned. The consideration of the sun is imposed by the necessity of a physical referent(8) to us, geocentric observers. The true and exact referent is the center of the Universe, impossible for us to observe.

By logical dEducation, we perceive a simple transfer of axes, in which the sun is the universe referent. The apparent solar movement correspondingly embodies the positive direction, and orientates the representative circle.

Further, the inverse direction is of negative quality.

We must be able to represent in a logical manner the two signal/ non-signal trigrams and their variation according to six intermediary levels, starting from 000 or 0. Since the logical sequence imposes the positioning of the next trigram 1 or 001, two locations are possible and the only logical one is in the N-W. The positioning of 001 in the N-E is not valid because it would not respect the polarity of the first family (000 to 011). The positioning of the other binary triplets becomes straightforward and is illustrated in Fig. 2.3.


Fig. 2.2 - Cardinal Representation Fig. 2.3 - Graph 1


The phase of low energy is negative compared to the referential, and the phase of energetic growth becomes positive and ends at the culminating South point 111, where the sequence inverses itself and starts again. In this way, an internal spiral movement is determined, starting at 000 and ending at 111 after a diametrical transition from 011 to 100. This internal movement will be named spiral movement, or spiral index. This system now takes its definite name of Graph 1. It is nothing else than a binary octet in continuous dynamic equilibrium and without going further, it is worthy to note that it identifies with the Primordial Celestial Disposition of Fu Hi of the Chinese classics.

4. Properties

4.1. Symmetries (Fig. 2.4)

The internal structure of Graph 1 and of each triplet leads to two basic cases of symmetries: (1) contrary and (2) inverse (or reverse). For example, triplet 011 has for contrary triplet 100 and for inverse triplet 110 (specular symmetry). This property is valid for any triplet, including the palindromic triplets (i.e., the contrary of 010 is 101 and its inverse is itself).

Another property is that no matter the triplet under consideration, there will always be a negative triplet for two positive triplets, and inversely. This Law of Contraries and Inverses will never display the combination of three negatives or three positives.



Fig. 2.4 Symmetries


4.2. Permutation or Transformation


The natural series of the binary values begins with 000 and defines the internal spiral movement, or spiral index. The source value 000 is diametrically opposed to the value 111 (the highest apparent potential). In other words, the triplet 111 is Signal and 000 is Effector. Here, an ambiguity exists. If 111 is signal and 000 is effector, two possibilities of movements are encountered: either the effect, the sequence, follows the spiral index, or the effect obeys to the positive orientation of the original indicator which defines the positive polarity.

The indicator of origin is the inductor: The internal movement is induced. But this effect is general, or resultant. We have the right to suggest a hypothesis: If the spiral index is a general induced consequence, we might suppose that the movement of induction could be decomposed step by step and thus lead to the apparition of nonvisible properties.

Since the system is in continuous dynamic equilibrium, one could choose aπ/4ny binary value as the origin. The simplest and most logical case is to begin the study with the major signal 111. The variation of the indicator of origin is obvious: from 111, the following step is triplet 011. In other words, the variation is π/4. Continuing in the same positive direction, the next variation will be 2π/4, and then 3π/4 and finally 4π/4 in 000. From there, the variation effects asymmetric inversion. There are thus four cases of variations leading to four analyses of which we must extract the eventual properties.


4.3. π/4 Variation (Fig. 2.5)

The signal is at 111 and the effector at 000. The indicator of origin turns positively. Consequently, from 111 the movement crosses diametrically to 000 (action/effector signal) and arrives at 100 after a π/4 variation. However, the system is in dynamic equilibrium and we must continue to cover all the possibilities of Graph 1.

Since the variation is π/4 and the position is at the triplet 100, the only logical solution is to continue diametrically (secondary signal/effector action) from 100 to 011 and to follow a positive π/4 variation. In this way, we arrive at triplet 010.

The problem is identical: we have not yet covered all possibilities. By continuing we cross diametrically to 101, follow a π/4 variation until 110 and continue the movement diametrically to 001 where it stops. All the possibilities have been covered. If we continue, the movement completely inverses and we enter in the case of symmetry. Thus, the triplet 001 is the target of the total movement of the signal 111.

Thus, two possibilities arise:

Either 111 transformed into 001 and the distribution of Graph 1 does not change. We will say that a Transformation occurs.

Or 111 substitutes to 001. We will say that a Substitution occurs. Now, what happens to the triplet 001 in this case? We will see this later.

π/4 variation

Fig. 2.5 π/4 variation


4.4. 2π/4 Variation (Figures 2.6 and 2.7)

Same starting point at signal 111. Arrival at 000 and positive variation but of π/4. This leads us to 101. Diametrical crossing leading at 010.

If we continue, we return directly to 000. If we continue, the movement covers only the four values 111 - 000 - 101 - 010: the movement is trapped, and the four other intermediary values are missing. The only solution, in order to go through all the possibilities, is to insert a π/4 variation from 010. Then the movement can continue: 001 - 110 - 011 - 100. This last triplet 100 (X6) is the target value of the total movement.

There are thus two movements at right angles separated - or linked - by a unit variation of π/4. The first movement (111 - 000 - 101 - 010) is designated Cardinal, and the second one (001- 110- 011-100) Sub-Cardinal. The intermediary value is a transition.

On the other hand, the representative circle is oriented in the positive clockwise direction. Hence, the South-North diameter oriented in this direction (Signal action) will have as a complement the perpendicular diameter 101-010 oriented in this direction. We also note that if we had transformed signal 111 through a negative π/4 variation, we would have reached the same target 100 in X6.

In order not to confuse the two π/4 and 2π/4 processes, we will say that the 2π/4 process is a Complementarity.


Fig. 2.6 Fig. 2.7


4.5. 3π/4 Variation (Fig. 2.8 and 2.9)

The start is always identical at signal 111. Crossing at 000. Positive 3π/4 variation to 110 (X8). Diametrical crossing to 001 (X4). Positive 3π/4 variation to 101 (X7). The movement continues diametrically and varies regularly until reaching the last possibility which is the target triplet 011 in X2. If we had adopted the negative variation, we would have reached the triplet 110 (X8), inverse symmetrical of triplet 011.

We note that all happens as if signal 111 has simply slid to 011.

We will identify this movement by designating it sliding.

We note that the final target of this modality is none other than the π/4 Transformation of the Contrary of the starting signal (000 X5): this variation of 3π/4 is a particular case of Contrary transformation of signal 111.


Fig. 2.8 Fig. 2.9


4.6. 4π/4 Variation

This variation is equivalent to that of π/4. The start is at 111. Diametrical crossing to 000. 4π/4 Variation. return to 111. Of course no permutation is possible.


4.7. There are thus only Three cases of possible permutations: π/4, 2π/4, 3π/4.

Since the system is in continuous dynamic equilibrium, these three cases of permutation can be applied to any triplet.

However, the most important property is that the π/4 variation is constantly present in the three cases, in one way or the other. The process of Transformation is thus fundamental: it is the unit process, no matter the chosen polarity.

Thus, an important conclusion: If the dynamic is continuous, if the system is in equilibrium, and if the triplet 111 is the major signal, it is evident that by sequentially adding all the movements, some Substitutions will occur. This leads to a Second distribution of the eight triplets, and it is a direct consequence of the general dynamic of Graph 1.)

One aspect is to highlight: the unit variation always includes Three steps: starting signal, step of intermediary transition, and final target. This algorithm in Three will appear as being constantly present and will have the importance of a dynamic key.



2. Graph 2

1. Limits of Graph 1

Graph 1 is the representation of the continuous dynamic variation of the continuous dynamic relation between energy, structure, and evolution in a time continuum. However, the energetic interactions and variations among the various states inherent to it are missing. For example, the positive π/4 variation of 111 leads to 000. At that level, two cases can exist, both possible: (1) 111 transforms into 001 and (2) 111 substitutes 001. This will initiate its own motion and ultimately the rearrangement of Graph 1.

The variation of the other trigrams will prompt the establishment of a second equation, a transformation of the first one.


2. Laws

The different laws that have emerged previously in the determination of Graph 1 must be respected (action, reaction, symmetry, alternation of polarity, and rotation).

There are eight movements to predict: a family of four followed by a second family of four. Once the first four are movements are known, the next four can be deduced, by symmetry.

A complete demonstration leads to the determination of the definitive transformations. The following charts summarize the transformative process.


Figure 2.10. Emergence of Graph 2

Graph 2 is thus represented as follows:



Graph 1 Graph 2

Fig. 2.11

Nobody will be surprised when we say that this equation has long been known by the Chinese under the name of the Secondary Terrestrial Disposition of Wen Wang.

The internal laws (the contraries) of Graph 1 lead to a logical redistribution of all their values. This can be formulated as follows: If Graph 1, then Graph 2.

By analogical symmetry: if Graph 1 is at dominant energy, then Graph 2 is at dominant matter (or structure).



3. System 6


1. Setting Up the Problem

The development of the structural and dynamic organization has started with the apparition of Graph 1 and its structuration into Graph 2. These two Graphs are in constant interaction and it is logical to study the response of the system resulting from the arrival of external information while upholding the conformity to the Time axis, thus maintaining a positive polarity of movement.


2. Establishment of the System

The laws of S.E.A. are still upheld: Symmetry, alternation, contraries, and action-reaction. The most basic informative signal starts at the origin of the whole system, 111. As it transforms into Graph1 (G1), it will generate a symmetrical reaction at the level of Graph 2 (G2), from the complementary of the target-trigram in Graph 1.

111 designates, as we noted, 001 which is the entry signal in G2. In G2, 001 turns positive and designates 101. The contrary of 101 is 010. 010 is the correspondent in G1. This is a positive transformation. In G1, 010 designates 100. The contrary of 100 is 011. 011 is the correspondent in G2. In G2, 011 designates 110. The contrary of 110 is 001. 001 is the correspondent in G1. The cycle is completed since we are back at 001 of G1.

The following sequence is thus generated:

111 001 101 010 100 011 110 001
/ G1 G2 G1 G2 G1 G2 /


The signal 111, general referential of the movement, and 001, the return, are not integrated in this sequence because 111 is the signal of transformation and 001 would signify a return to the preceding state, and a lack of evolution or transformation.


3. Graphical Representation (Fig. 2.12)

The extreme values of this sequence are the contrary triplets 001 and 110. This allows us to write this sequence circularly with these two triplets being conjoint. Two characteristics appear here: (1) there is no criterion of positioning of the triplet 001 and we can choose any node and (2) there are no criteria of orientations. The second characteristic leads to the apparition of a bifurcation in the model: two graphs, clockwise and anticlockwise (or counterclockwise?) exist.

Clockwise Anticlockwise

Figure 2.12

4. Characteristics

Aside from the apparition of the bifurcation at the level of the System 6 (see previous chapter), we also note that there is also the occurrence of inversion from 100 toward 011, while this inversion occurs from 011 to 100. This inversion will have a consequence later on.



4. Pentasymmetry

4.1. Reason of Being

The process of Transformation that took place in Graph 1, and continued in Graph 2 and led to the new distribution in Six triplets, must now continue in this System 6.

It can only start at triplet 001 and will again follow exactly the same laws: diametrical action-signal, circular evolution, and so forth.

4.2. Analytical Conditions

The two distributive solutions of the System 6 are acceptable as a starting point. We will work from the anticlockwise solution, which appears more logical in terms of the overall dynamics, although the other distribution can be used as well. This defines at the same time the direction-negative-of the first transformation starting from 001.

As seen before, triplet 011 is the signal of polarity inversion. But here, the polarity inversion also occurs at triplet 100, because System 6 is neutral. The mechanism stops when all possibilities have been covered.

4.3. Analysis

The movement of transformation is identical to those seen before and is illustrated in figure 2.13 for the first triplet 001.

The movement ends when all possibilities are covered. The final sequence is constituted of Ten triplets aligned sequentially and it accepts only one ranking solution:




Negative Transformation Positive Transformation

 Figure 2.13


4.4. Graphical Representations

The final sequence consists of two families of five triplets each and of alternating polarities. The initial solution consists in using a cardinal grid holding the two main complementary diameters oriented clockwise. In this way, we must involve the center of the circle, which thus constitutes the fifth node allowing a coherent distribution. The origin-triplet 011-is located at the Western node, the only negative node on the negative side of the index spiral and the other triplets are then placed logically. The final sequence unfolds without complications and the result is displayed on Figure 2.14. The internal movement inside the cardinal graph follows a precise route where the distribution of triplets on the center node is located between south and west. This characteristic allows the final design of a pentasymmetrical figure: the pentasymmetry (Fig. 2.15).


Fig. 2.14: Cardinal Layout  

Fig. 2.15: Pentasymmetry

This cardinal layout has several characteristics at the level of the final organization of the living system. Aside from these characteristics, it undergoes a rearrangement that leads to the final pentasymmetrical organization.

4.5. Internal Characteristics (Figure 2.16)

Two families characterize the sequence obtained from the transformations occurring in the System 6. By rearranging these two families and by following exactly the sequential order, we obtained the two following subsets:

(1) 001-011-001-010-010 and (2) 110-110-101-100-101.

If we trace a route joining sequentially all these triplets, we obtain a final internal pentasymmetrical relation between all ten triplets. Two conjugated movements thus characterize the pentasymmetry: (1) one of generation, which led to the apparition of the pentasymmetry, and (2) one of internal movement defining interrelations between groups.


Figure 2.16


4. Cardinal Transformations



4.1. Transformations in the Cardinal System

It is logical to consider the pentasymmetrical system as an extension-consequence of System 6: it describes the movements of integration. It is thus as logical to consider the processes of transformation in this pentasymmetry. The same laws apply. The pentasymmetrical layout is inferred from the cardinal layout, and so the transformations will be considered from the cardinal layout. The transformations occurring in the pentasymmetry will be considered in the next section.

4.2. Conditions

The system of reference is energetic, thus Graph 1. In Graph 1, two triplets signify transformations (transition): 011 and 100. These triplets impose the polarity inversion in the transformations occurring in System 6. They will thus carry on their meaning in the pentasymmetrical system. The cardinal layout being the signal of the pentasymmetry (thus positive=yang), we will consider 100 in it, while 011 will be considered for the pentasymmetry.

4.3. Cardinal Transformation

Five groups exist, of which one is in the center. Consequently, there are four peripheral groups. Therefore, the transformative movement consists in three movements following successively the three positive values 100, 101 and 110. It will be complementary (2p/4 movement) and it will include the center in its routes (Figure 2.17).

The first movement, starting from 100, is illustrated in Figure 2.18.

Fig 2.17 Fig 2.18

The results of these movements provide the following relations:

Group Relation
011 and 001 and 010
001 and 010
011 and 010>


4.4. Signification

This relationship of groups shows that the three negative triplets are not only subjected to the three positive ones, but also to their order. The order of the three positive triplets conditions the order of the three negative ones. On the other hand, each positive triplet is related to two or three negative triplets. This suggests that their proper coordination, or more simply their proper functioning, is insured by the coordination of the positive values. Consequently, this system expresses the triple notion of protection, coordination and distribution.


5. Pentasymmetrical Transformations

5.1. Conditions

As seen in the previous chapter, the transformations occur starting from 011. In this model, none of the points is diametrically opposed to another and thus the notion of central passage is an impossibility. The only logical solution is to follow the pentasymmetrical movement.

5.2. Analysis

There are five points. Thus, there will be four clockwise movements as illustrated in Figure 2.19 (transformative movement of 011). The five values of transformation obtained are: 001, 011, 101, 010 and 110.

Figure 2.19

5.3. Signification (Figure 2.20)

The values obtained lead to the notion of operators. The pentasymmetry holds ten values, of which five are operators, or dynamic dominant of the node. The other triplet of the node constitutes a conjugated link. This is true for all values, except for 100, which is actually co-dominant with triplet 011 because of its special role of generating the conjugated values of transformation.

Fig 2.20

6. General Synthesis

A link exists between the three components, energy, structure and evolution in relation to the referential time. The coherence of these three components leads to an organization that translates through a continuous variation of their relationship in a time continuum. It is Graph 1.

This variation, in equilibrium, passes through eight different states. This asymmetry allows the creation of other solutions of equilibration. It can transform. It is this transformation which is signified in Graph 2.

The action of one Graph upon the other in a relationship of interaction leads to the notion of System 6. This System, in fact, contains two solutions in perfect symmetry. These concepts, resulting from the preceding complex interactions are determined by the initial signal/non-signal. This creates their total subjection to the signal/non-signal. These six levels of energy are only steps in the variation of the signal/non-signal. In order for this system to function, it must transform the signal. This System 6 is a life-system. Subjected to a signal, it can only exist by the transformation of the signal.

This transformation is coordinated by a system that equilibrates, regulates and controls it. It is the Pentacoordination.
