Item description for Bios: A Study Of Creation (Series on Knots and Everything) by Hector C. Sabelli...

This book focuses on a prototype of creative causal processes termed BIOS and how the concept can be applied to the physical world, in medicine and in social science. This book presents methods for identifying creative features in empirical data; studies showing biotic patterns in physical, biological, and economic processes; mathematical models of bipolar (positive and negative) feedback that generate biotic patterns. These studies support the hypothesis that natural processes are creative (not determined) and causal (not random) and that bipolar feedback plays a major role in their evolution. Simple processes precede, coexist, constitute and surround the complex systems they generate (priority of the simple). In turn, complex processes feedback and transform simpler ones (supremacy of the complex).

Reviews - What do customers think about Bios: A Study Of Creation (Series on Knots and Everything)?

Bios--A theory of nature that challenges our preconceptions  Sep 28, 2006
I found that the book has introduced some totally new and significant ideas about science and logic that have ramifications about the basis of all theories of the natural world. Like most totally new and creative ideas, it is not immediately obvious that the ideas presented have such ramifications, notwithstanding the rather clear claim of the author. It is worth remembering that such ideas as fractals, and chaos were equally unclear to the general readership, though those that first observed the phenomena had a clear idea of what was new, and articulated those ideas well. I found it useful in approaching this book to start with the conclusion, since there the author's general plan is laid out. I found it then useful to consider the author's example of the heart, and how the ideas of bios are exemplified. For this example, the various ways of looking at the data, such as recursion plots, are as new and useful as the ways of measuring the shoreline was to fractals. One sees that bios occurs in natural processes, and gets a feel for how to look for such effects elsewhere. The book contains a great deal of the author's thoughts about other places to look for bios, other places where bios can be seen, and more importantly, shares his philosophical views about how theories of nature should be constructed. He allows the reader to see that the essence of these ideas extend back in time to the teachings of Heraclitus and Lao-Tze, to name just two early philosophers.

In short, I strongly recommend that every serious student of nature and philosophy have a copy of Bios on their desk.
A foundation for a living science  Sep 10, 2006
I found Bios to be successful in its ambitious project to establish a
new mathematics and new science of creative processes. The mathematic
analysis of Bios has powerful applications in my professional life as
a computer programmer and a designer of computer models for education.
I believe it is a significant break-thru in the understanding of
complex, creative phenomena.

The books application of biotic analysis to other fields of science is
an excellent example of the critical power of re-examining the
foundation of our understanding of creative processes. The tremendous
scope of knowledge that is brought to bear in presenting a historic
analysis of these scientific fields is impressive. It illustrates how
these fields of knowledge are themselves creative processes that can
be understood thru the Bios hypothesis.

On a personal level, Bios has given not only a voice, but a toolbox,
to the critical concerns I have with my professional work, and my own
scientific studies. I previously had difficulty describing to my
colleagues my misgivings about the application of game-theory, chaos
studies, equilibrium dynamics, and other staples of computer modeling
of complex phenomena -- especially in the context of science education
for children. Bios gave me a framework to explain my misgivings, as
well as a alternative hypothesis to approach the work with.
