Introduction to SEA

SEA - Introduction


SEA is an emerging branch of system theories presenting a novel approach to understand the phenomena of life.

The principles and the mechanics of system energetics were first worked out in the 1970's and 1980's by Dr. Maurice Mussat.   Since then the technique has been used to understand such diverse problems as functional physiology, Chinese medicine physiology, logics of meridians, psychology, pathology, fundamental genetics, and logical approach to ancient philosophical texts. The literature of system energetics applications now comprises more than 20 books and many dozen of papers published with translations into several languages. System energetics groups are active in Quebec, the United States, and several European countries.

Over the past two decades there has also been significant expansion in the teaching programs and materials devoted to system energetics. Programs emphasizing this methodology are now available in academic setups, and several introductory textbooks have been published. In addition, the system energetics groups are developing a wealth of course materials to describe, illustrate, and provide practice in the application of simple energetic principles to real and interesting problems. Our site presents in one place an introduction to many of these materials.

No one book can provide a comprehensive introduction to the total set of procedures and rules required to understand the behavior of complex systems according to system energetics. Indeed, theoretical understanding and practical applications are still growing rapidly. However, this site is dedicated to move the field of system energetics toward greater maturity and toward more effective, interesting teaching and learning by providing a centralized source of information.

Presentation of Systems Energetics Applied (SEA)


Systems Energetics Applied: A Revolution in the understanding of Acupuncture

The works of Dr. Maurice Mussat are now available for the first time in English.

His theories have a fundamental importance in the contemporary development of acupuncture. Dr. Mussat demonstrates a rare knowledge of both contemporary medicine and acupuncture and has developed over the past thirty years a logical system that allows a bridging of both Western medicine and acupuncture. This system extends far beyond acupuncture as it finds ramifications in fundamental genetics and homeopathy, among others. The theories are sound and coherent, always going back and forth between modern developments and links with the Classics of acupuncture.

Energetics has grown internationally and is represented in universities of Canada, Israel, Italy and France. Part of his system is also presented in USA, in the UCLA acupuncture program for physicians. However, until now, none of this works has been translated completely. Partial presentation of his system allows some clinical applications but it is only the complete study of his work that unravels the endless possibilities of this new and extraordinary system.

Remaining at the level of acupuncture, Energetics constitutes a demonstration of all traditional data on acupuncture. But Energetics as a whole springs forth into the Science of the Human Being. It vibrates from the unfolding of new understandings and of new research avenues.

The translations present a unified understanding of the following aspects:

  • Anterior trigrammatic disposition of Fu Xi
  • Posterior trigrammatic disposition of Wen Wang
  • Six Energetic Layers
  • Five phase dynamics
  • Logical understanding of San Jiao
  • Logical understanding of the spatial disposition of the main meridians
  • Logical understanding of the other meridian systems.
  • Logical understanding of the eight extraordinary meridians.
  • Clinical applications
  • The trigrammatic coding of every acupuncture points and the implication on a therapeutic level.

These present translations will allow the serious student to grasp the system as a whole, apply it intelligently and be able to further research in any of its potential research sections.

Undergoing translations will add the following aspects:

  • Other clinical applications
  • Understanding of the deep meridian pathways
  • Fundamental research of meridians dynamics
  • Fundamental research of Needle properties
  • Essays on the system of "Stems and Branches"
  • And so forth.

I has been an honor for me to translate these works over the last few year and to have the privilege to work closely with Dr. Mussat.

It is my hope that these translations will assist acupuncture in its growth.
