This quantity represents the 1st which interfaces with astronomy because the fulcrum of the sciences. It offers complete expression to the human ardour for the skies. Advancing human civilization has spread out and matured this ardour into the excellent technological know-how of astronomy. Advancing science’s quest for the 1st rules of life meets the ontopoietic generative trademarks of lifestyles, the focus of the hot Enlightenment. It provides quite a few views illustrating how the interaction among people and the celestial realm has educated civilizational tendencies. students and philosophers debate in physics and biology, the findings of that are establishing a extra inclusive, wider photo of the universe. the several types of the common order and of lifestyles right here offered, all aiming on the first rules of existence―accord with the phenomenology/ontopoiesis of existence in the logos-prompted primogenital movement of turning into and motion, which issues to a way forward for progressing tradition.

This latter demand an existential resource achieving past the generative life-world community.

Example text

It is usual to think that life cannot be defined exactly and exhaustively; that is, according to the laws of physics. Yet life can be understood as the universally F O U N D AT I O N O F T H E U N I V E R S A L S C I E N C E 25 common property of all living organisms. This understanding underscores the Bauer-principle’s definition of living organisms. The Bauer-principle tells: The living and only the living systems are never in equilibrium, and, on the debit of their free energy, they continuously invest work against the realization of the equilibrium which should occur within the given outer conditions on the basis of the physical and chemical laws (Bauer, 1935/1967, pp.

It belongs to the very F O U N D AT I O N O F T H E U N I V E R S A L S C I E N C E 21 nature of the least action principle that it refers to an end state. Regarding this basic fact, it can be regarded as surprising that most physicists think that teleology is alien in physics. Certainly, this type of physical teleology is different from teleology that is characteristically present in biology. In biology, teleology is characterized by action in which the end state corresponds to biological needs or ends, and the living organism can contribute to the determination of its endpoints.

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 businessman naturally tries to maximize the total profit by following the most advantageous history” (Zee, 1986, p. 107). Actually, the most fundamental meaning of the action principle is that the action is a cost function (Rosen, 1967, pp.
