Trees create the form of the wind.
Every time he observed again that those experiments [on human attractions] not always succeeded but it wasn’t a good reason to give up, that research instead had to be pursued with a serious methodology, revealing relations and affinities of inorganic matters, and those between organic and inorganic, or inside organic itself, which now were hidden.
Johann W. von Goethe, The Elective Affinities
Mind Force is beyond the Cartesian Res Cogitans and Res Extensa in dynamical and structural terms. We might say that it constitutes a superior unity. New physics and new biomedicine gave us some crucial tools to transcend Descartes. The immense complexity and dimensionalities of human systems, if considered in a post-Cartesian view, must be studied in the modern terms of complexity theory, nonlinear dynamics, field theory, quantum mechanics, molecular biology and cognitive science. These seemingly different approaches would be integrated in order to reach a real view of MF nature and operations, beyond the dichotomies and appearances we a re used to see.
A logical consequence is that MF, in its structure (that we are going to recognize in random networks) and dynamics (that we are going to recognize in fields, waves of synchronizing nonlinear oscillators), would be heterogeneous. Dynamics, fields and hyperstructures of MF would span through molecular domains, neural domains, cognitive domains and even socio-cultural domains. We might need to consider how MF fields might “pack” specific dynamics “vertically” ranging across these different domains, just we have considered dynamical fields spanning within a single domain.
If we are able to accomplish this reframing of our perceptual and cognitive habits in order to recognize MF, we might see how it forms a dynamical “glue” ensuring the inner and outer attractions in bodies, minds and social ensembles and the cohesion of our inner and outer bio-psycho-social realities. A definition of Mind Force would be as the hyperstructure formed by random self-organizing networks of synchronized linear and nonlinear oscillators coupled and recruited in waves and fields spanning trough heterogeneous domains. Bio-psycho-social oscillators would act as nodes or hubs in this dynamical hyperstructure. Each oscillator might act as a master hub and/or as a slave or a free (self-organizing) node within the hyperstructure dynamics. Waves of massive and eventually heterogeneous transient entrainment would form attractors and fields. These waves of massive synchronizations propagate through different media, domains and dimensionality scales. A logical consequence is that MF transient or steady fields would interfere and interact each other, but there would be MF resultant forming MF dynamical landscapes.
The origin of the word synchronization is an ancient Greek root, sun-cronos, which means “to share time”. nThe history of synchronization goes back to the 17th century when the famous Dutch scientist Christiaan Huygens (1673)
reported on his observation of synchronization of two pendulum clocks. Systematic study of this phenomenon, experimental as well as theoretical, was started by Edward Appleton (1922) and Balthasar van der Pol (1927). They showed that the frequency of a triode generator can be entrained, or synchronized, by a weak external signal with slightly different frequency. These studies were of high practical importance because such generators became basic elements of radio communication systems.
Mutual synchronization of two weakly nonlinear oscillators was analytically treated by Mayer (1935) and Gaponov (1936. An important step was done by Stratonovich (1958, 1963) who developed a theory of external synchronization of a weakly nonlinear oscillator in the presence of random noise.
The theory of coupled oscillators (dynamic attractors). Coupled oscillators can be found throughout the natural world, but they are especially conspicuous in living things: pacemaker cells in the heart; insulin secreting cells in the pancreas; and neural networks in the brain and spinal cord that control such rhythmic behaviors as breathing, running and chewing. Indeed, not all the oscillators need be confined to the same organism: consider crickets that chirp in unison and congregations of synchronously flashing fireflies. Any recent book on musicophilia reminded how our nervous system is exquisitely tuned for music. But how much of this is due to the intrinsic physical characteristics of music itself and its complex sonic patterns woven in time? E. T. Hall (1983) has been important in noticing that humans in all cultures are engaged in a rhythmic dance. Menstrual sync: case studies thing displaying a periodic behavior is an oscillator (not just pendulums!?) Phase, frequency & amplitude nSynchrony harmonizes complex interacting variables. Sync is an attempt to synthesize a vast body of knowledge created by scientists working across disciplines, continents and centuries. Sync Theory synthesize complex data in the same and different domains: self-organized order in time and space. “At the heart of the universe is a steady, insistent beat: the sound of cycles in sync. It pervades nature at every scale, from the nucleus to the cosmos” (Strogatz, 2003).
