The theory of “Life’s complex systemicity”, is shown as the life’s meta-dynamic of its sustainability: a “Bioethism transdisciplinary approach” result

Jean-Jacques BLANC


An extensive research by the author, J-J. Blanc, on "Systems science" (since 1996) induced to his creating a new systemic paradigm for a transdisciplinary approach of living systems. Named “The Bioethism”, it was developed towards a large understanding of living systems origin, their natural structures, behaviors, bonds and evolution while permanently interacting with environmental events both within their body and their ecosystemic and sociosystemic environments, together with their status and evolution direction.
Beyond the sense given to the noun and the adjective “systemic” as linked to the notion of very many systems in general, the notion of “systemicity”, is, in this new theory, far more suggestive of the global dynamics, as “meta-drivers”, that made Life to exist and sustain. To illustrate the dynamical sense of it, it is only to refer to another notion that has a dynamic sense: the “velocity ”.
The survey of the different disciplines concerned with living systems' survival, an analytical methodology and analysis of the above processes, led to the emergence of a new theory the author called “The Life’s complex systemicity” that is relying on the entire body of dynamics that made and make life to exist and sustain, thus adapting to the dynamics of changes. A "meta-systemicity" participates in such move in terms of the retroactive physical and cosmic dynamics world.
At the Asilomar ISSS 48th conference (2004), the author, introducing the notion of "systemicity" and its theory, first described “survival”: a circular and regulating set of dynamic moves permanently fed along with a psychophysiological body streaming biochemical matters and information feedback. Those moves are fed from necessary survival interactions and retroaction as they result from the endogenous or exogenous milieu changes. The body of these retroactive phenomena that are fundamental to living system's survival, suggested another and complementary approach in the form of a new paradigm. As central to Life’s dynamic, these systemic circular phenomena as the product of interactions with the environment of life's ecosystems and creatures' bodily structures were then named by the author: the “environmental-psycho-somatopsychism”, (a neologism and its abbreviation: "e-psop”). A overview upon the entire body of interdependent bio-physicochemical mechanisms, processes and streams, interwoven within "3D networks" shows that systemic survival abilities and performances are epigenetically provided from the convergence of cosmic forces (magnetic, gravitational…) and planetary conditions (geologic, geochemical, geophysical, geo-climatic…) that retroactively sustains individual creatures to exist and survive within a world of inevitable interdependency.
The efficiency of the streams of circular information, stimuli and survival activities require adaptation to the dynamics of these "physicochemical games" and other environmental changes. The energy that is required is provided for by environments and transformed into metabolic results that "fuel" the vitality of life's biological processes. Then, epigenetic and emergent results induced to from the cosmic physicochemical world, together with evolution changes, promote biochemical and physiological processes, that structure, assimilate and form body components, psychic structures and differential metabolic outputs for creatures to survive. The “entirety” of these universal, cosmic forces, planetary mechanisms and processes, as individually and globally dynamic, sustains the notion that such "Systemicity" is the meta-dynamic that was and is Life to be.
As the description of "The Theory of Systemicity" will requires several communications, it is here decided to brush up some of the scientific principles that support the whole complexity of "Systemicity". We will nevertheless partly develop the historical and timely aspect of "Systemicity" as part of the meta-systemic dynamics that sustain our Planet as "Gaïa" and Life as the convergence of emergent results.
