Integrity or Extegrity
Integrity Paradigm shift and Consciousness Transformation.
General comments prio to discussion of Integrity Paradigm
Yuri Demchenko, September 1999
Here is an attempt to present another/new relativistic view of the Universe
and our conceiving world or explored reality. In some way it goes on deeper
in altering relativistic presentation/transformation of observed/conceived/explored
material/physical world/reality. The main background/reason of one more
attempt in exploring/tackling traditional philosophical problems is development
of Information Society based on Global Networked Information Infrastructure
which creation author is active participant.
This James Rose's work is dated by 1973, some revisions but rather insufficient,
was done in 1992.
Given making detailed analysis of the theory it becomes obviously that
it contains some typical features of theory of that time when Physics was
the leading front of the nature exploration and technology development.
That time is often referred as Technological society or formation.
Development of Information Technologies (IT) and Computer Networks and
Communications (hereafter Internet) leaded humankind into Information Age
or Information Society which is characterised by Information as a main
value of the New/Information Society and Knowledge as a main component
of the production/reproduction system of Information/Knowledge based Economy.
Since leading industrial countries moved to the new economy based on
IT and Computer Networks (Internet) development, the main values of the
new emerging Information Society sufficiently changed. Years 1997-1998
were defined as years when humankind entered new Information Society based
on world wide spread and availability of the Internet. Together with changing
structure and components of the production systems the main paradigm(s)
of our life has changed.
Information Society distinguishes in many features from previous formations
such as Industrial and Technological Societies both of which has changed
during the life of middle age people:
Meaning of Information and it's role changed though we don't have enough
clear definition of the information as well as it's new and extending nature.
The most important paradigm shift in Information definition and its role
in the new Information Society/Economy/Production is in accepting Information
as a main value and important component of the new production system.
Knowledge based economy driven by knowledge based companies
Value of knowledge and global knowledge dissemination
Increasing role of social activity and social life beside production activity
Increasing role of moral codes
Philosophy Integration and fusion of the main philosophical and esoteric
Forming new Reality that is already (can be) given in out perception and
still is very limited in exploration possibility
Another important issue/fact/reality lays/correspond to/related
to explosive increase on communications network speed and capacity. It
allows (change) uniformity of all technologies aimed on/used information
exchange, interaction mediation and Society development.
Humanity (industrialised nations) empowered by IT and communications
began to perceive new reality and explore integration of all conscious(ness)
Information and Knowledge dissemination, access and exchange
almost instantly is changing the way people interact, product, consume
and develop forming new emerging reality/environment Global Consciousness.
The main foundations of forming/developing Global Consciousness are
But a number of smaller new questions/problems to be solved/resolved at
general philosophical level
Global and instant access to all Information and Knowledge available in
Development of assistant tool for Information search and process, including
summarising tools and expert systems
Forming Global awareness system enabled by feedback channels/ability what
can be treated as the predecessor of forming Global Consciousness of the
In these conditions humankind once more again faced the main/global philosophical/gnoseological
What are the extents of the new emerging reality?
What are and how deep the consciousness changes with emerging Information
How objective and to what extent subjective the observed/perceived external
Where is the next/further development of technology and humanity? Where
does humanity go?
What are the next/further changes in production system and business/commerce
How is personal development (freedom, dependence and influence) and personality
conscious activity depends on and able to influence on Global activity/processes?
Crisis of modern psychology and all other human sciences based on materialistic
and physical/mechanical approaches/methodology.
Forming new Reality that is already (can be) given in out perception and
still is very limited in exploration possibility can not be explained in
frame and by means of existing theories as well as refuted/denied.
Foundation of the Philosophy of new Reality, Information Society
Integration of Philosophy that should follow technological development
and integration of Humankind
Notes on the fields:
Do we have any reality/extant/idos that doesn't depend on time though can
be involved into time durable/flow/span processes?
It is information.
It's consistent from Rose that model of our reality/world should include
mass-energy in addition to four dimensional spacetime (3D+T).
Combined with Shennon's Information theory and Entropy mass-energy
can link together/bind spacetime with time independence category information
through Information capacity and information activity/exchange of our explored
Another consistent idea of the Integrity Concept is possibility/? of local
entropies and exchange between local entropies.
Information acquisition and digitalisation of all man's activity leads
to creation time-snap infrastructure that will keep complete snap-shoot
of the whole human activity
We can state/suppose that local/localised entropy anomaly/singularity may
exist around time independent extant/entity/idos, like information, stored
or programmed information. Examples for living nature are DNA, etc.
Time independent extant/entity/idos, like information, stored or programmed
information can form/create entropy singularity.
Coming from Humankind development as Global Knowledge acquisition/processing
final stage for now is creation of Networked Society, we can extend our
view over/to seeing nature/noosphere development as time-mastering
development in the process of which entity/extant reach better/deeper independence
on time as one-way flow of development/metabolism.
Given appearance of DNA, time stable biosystems came to existence.
Their role in biosphere sufficiently increased and extended and leaded
to formation of noosphere distinguished by man existence.
The very development of humankind can effectively be presented as time-mastering
development, i.e. language, literacy, printing/publishing, IT and communications
accomplished by WWW information infrastructure all this leaded to better
mastering timeflow problem, all this developed less time depended system
for knowledge acquisition and wider, in more global way, exploring
of our reality.
When Information (or time-stop activity) reached some levels ...
Development of our world/reality of the Universe goes on in direction
of reaching more global and more stable independence of timeflow which
have been postulated as absolute undoubtedly true of our world/reality.
Exploring further Integrity Paradigm we can suggest relativity of unidirectional
timeflow paradigm which is least unrefuted postulate of our conceiving/explored/observed
world/reality. Creating wide information snapshot of our real world, which
may be based on not only stored information but also on algorithms
of information hashing and retrieving from storage. This last paradigm
puts in proper places role of IT, networking infrastructure, exploring
and formalising nature/reality in accomplishing global noosphere development.
Information capacity of physical system limitation by Entropy, residual
noise and energetic limitation on information speed transformation. All
this can be overridden by explored/known laws, dependencies, etc.
Universe which we are part and conceivers of in some universal way
find/direct way of human development to match/fulfil its global development
which we are only one of many components to accomplish global Universe
(or our world) development. We can only guess and retrospectively foresee
DNA activity/function, or DNA enabled living species create/alien/link/bound
to singularity of our world (material) around DNA as time-stop/time-keeping
extant. This is the explanation of the miracle of life appearance on the
Earth. But it also can suppose/consider existence/linkage to another world
where our instability, i.e. in/of time, reduced to stability or bi-directional
This hypothetical world can be named INKARM originating from two entities
independent on time Information and Karma. INKARM - world where past, present
and future are spannable in the same way as we can span 3 geometrical dimensions.
Each specie/extant of our world form singularity in our spacetime-mass-energy
linked to alien entity in INKARM or it is formed around such singularity
created/exposed in our world by initial entity/extant in INKARM.
To keep/sustain such singularity in our world special time-independent
entity like DNA or stored information bounded to information retrieval
system is needed.
Observation 7. Undoubted future time travel will deal with mental rather
than physical travel.
Although it's possible to suggest that real development of IT and network
infrastructure obviously leads to the extension of the "time-stop" or "time-snap"
in information picture.
If we need not only mind time travel, we should find method of matter transfomation
into information, and backward, it's obviously.
Time travel will be possible with enough power of replication system that
should normally replicate the whole mini-universe of target travelling.
Example of physical body replication in time is biological systems breeding.
Because of importance of breaking through this barrier in exploring the
essence and role of man, replication of human being will be done as soon
This fact of replication of human as bearer of advanced exploring consciousness
should answer the questions/phenomena of existing Extegrity world or INKARM.
Also possibility to know more about nature and role of DNA as information
holder as well as to know more about information itself contained by DNA.
Observation 8. Master time.
If we master/explorer past-time, it's expected we could master fore-time
Time travel is understood as human/mind enabled. So do we need to replace
Current technology already provide facility for virtual presence and presence
Conceptually we should find new model of emerging new reality
Role of sensations in our reality model
Foresee probable/obvoius forming/appearance of new sensation that can be
defined/expected as integral to our current sensations and be bound by
Proclaimer of such new sensations can be apparently named Valery Kourinsky
who introduced concept of thought-sensation which is by definition is integral
state of human being feedbacked by feeling of pleasure.
We can suggest/suppose that development of prototypes of our current sensations
was preceeded by pleasure to conscieve the world given us by light (for
sight), by sound (for hearing), etc. Rudiments of this ancient processes
are our channels of pleasure by all sensations.
Now we are experiencing virtual channels of sensational pleasure, also
creativity, f.e., gives us undoubted channel of pleasure though creative
perceiving of our cnsciousness world/reality. New sensation and (by means
of) pleasure will provide us necessary or least navigation in the new reality
what apparently will lead to the origin/conception of the new sensation
what in its next turn/step provide tool for exploring this new reality
that is deeply ideal/conscious as opposed to material.
Examples of Maugli demonstrate that our potentially human feelings and
pleasures may not be developed into real human sensations, not all high
mental pleasures may be available to underdeveloped individuals.
It's possible to state that nature as developing and evolving part of Universe
always finds in different ways its own way of development bounding/combining
sometimes unexpected items and unlinked events.
What does it happened with Physics development that left it's priority
in exploring Universe to IT.
