Metaphysics of Life-itself Emergent Paradigm is about Life-itself and How It Creates Itself Based on Process Metaphysics Characteristics (New Paradigm)

Life Creates by:

  • Creating New Realities
  • Novelty
  • Variety
  • Paradox
  • Cooperation
  • Avoiding equilibrium
  • Energy, energy stores
  • Improbability
  • Finding Effective Acts
  • Functioning as a Unicept
  • Life-itself produces evolution, not random processes or survival of the fittest
  • Oscillation and vibratory processes between both poles of categorical contrasts to find effective acts in its creation process

Based on Process Metaphysics Characteristics (New Paradigm)

  • Interactive relatedness
  • Wholeness
  • Innovation novelty
  • Productive Energy
  • Fluidity

Process Metaphysics Requires

  • Becoming based on values
  • Wholeness
  • Stretching for Novelty
  • Fluidity
  • Self-aware energy
  • Relations of relations
  • Functions of functions

New Life World View

Psychologist, Eleanor Rosch gives us a way to describe this emergent view of life as:

   "Primary knowing" arises by means of "interconnected wholes, rather than isolated contingent parts and by means of time-less, direct, presentation" rather than through stored "re-presentation." "Such knowing is open rather than determinate, and a sense of unconditional value, rather than conditional usefulness, is an inherent part of the act of knowing itself... Acting from such awareness is "spontaneous, rather than the result of decision making”, and it is "compassionate…since it is based on wholes larger than the self."

Distinction between Old and New Logics or Formalisms:

Characteristics of Traditional Logics:

  • truth preserving
  • thing oriented (extensional)
  • consistent which denies process
  • static
  • excludes self-reference (self-knowing)
  • excludes values

Characteristics of Life-itself Logics:

  • creative
  • meaning oriented (intensional)
  • allows oscillation
  • dynamic
  • requires self-reference (self-knowing)
  • value-driven

The primitives of the Life-itself-logics:

  • will not be things
  • there will be acts and inner relations (Inner relations are relations that change the* related)
  • the rules will not be inference rules but transformations
  • they will not have truth-values
  • truth values will be replaced by coherence, coherence will be conserved
  • they will not have subject-predicate forms of propositions.
  • categories will not be object categories but function categories
  • The questions we will ask of i-logics will not be “is it true”?
  • We will ask, “Can one get there from here”?
