Subject:A New Development in System Theory, Complexity, Computation and Metaphysics


I write to inform you that I have just published some information on the internet, regarding developments in mathematical system theory, complexity, computation and metaphysics. This may be of interest to you or you may know of others who would be interested, thus I have sent this email out to a few people in related fields.

I have been working for over thirteen years on developing a deep, general and holistic understanding of my world, during this time I studied physics and computational science at university for five years as well as countless other scientific and mystic disciplines. Since an epiphany or paradigm shift into a systemic and information theoretic conceptualisation of reality I have spent much of the last five years working full time on the development of a "system theoretic metaphysics of the nature of reality". I have not published anything prior to this but certain advancements in the work may be of importance to others so I have prepared some of the results for public consumption.

I first developed a deep philosophical understanding of systems and then worked on building mathematical models that could represent general systems without the introduction of any metaphysically spurious concepts; this resulted in System Matrix Notation (SMN), which is a mathematical general system theory that provides a model of general systems as well as of general realistic computation, which is finite discrete and massively parallel. This allows for the modelling of arbitrary systems, whether classical or quantum and linear or non-linear.

From this I developed software prototypes and general modelling methods which could be combined into a general system oriented modelling environment for countless applications. This allows for the construction and analysis of systems using advanced mathematical methods derived primarily from linear algebra, finite state automata, group theory, system theory, probability theory and quantum theory.

This however led to further mathematical analysis, particularly using group theoretic methods and the analysis of a cyclic computational process that relies on cyclic phenomena rather than binary phenomena. This led to a metaphysical model of a transcendent information process that could conceivably give rise to an empirical universe such as our own. Much like how a simulation program can produce a virtual space within which systems can exist and interact. For the virtual systems the virtual space seems real and tangible.

Within this space relativistic phenomena arise naturally as part of the group theoretic constraints for the transcendent information process to remain coherent and bounded (i.e. it has to be finite, discrete and 'closed' in all respects). Furthermore this analysis led to the derivation of the Planck Constants from purely computational considerations of cyclic processes as well as group theoretic constraints. Thus it gives rise to both relativistic phenomena and also a quantum vacuum.

Furthermore, when the actual data being computed is octonion, this model describes a ten dimensional empirical universe where the seven phase components allow for three spatial dimensions and four 'physical' forces. Also, the computational or causal interconnections are implemented as cyclic processes and thus they may be thought of as abstract one dimensional vibrating strings within that ten dimensional space. Thus, this system theoretic analysis has produced a mathematical model that has intriguing parallels with string theory but which is much more intuitively comprehensible and can also be utilised to model systems at any level from the most primitive systems right up to the most high level and complex systems.

This overall model describes an empirical universe in which each moment of empirical existence is computed by a transcendent information process. Within the transcendent process every empirical system interacts with every other empirical system in each moment and systems with similar computational frequencies resonate and interact more strongly. Indeed quantum phenomena such as entanglement and wavefunction collapse are intrinsic to the transcendent computational process, and possibly even holographic phenomena. This provides a computational framework or communication and interaction network that manifests and underlies an empirical, classical universe.

I have been working from abstract computational models and trying to determine how such models could give rise to an empirical universe such as that which we perceive. Just as I made theoretical contact with the quantum vacuum and the fundamental constants of physics I stumbled upon a recent book called "Science and the Akashic Field: An Integral Theory of Everything" by Ervin Laszlo and published by Inner Traditions. This book describes aspects of that which I have been working on but from a perspective embedded within the empirical universe or within the simulation. The Akashic Field and the whole unified vacuum is essentially an empirically based conceptualisation of the underlying transcendent communication network that I have been studying and modelling. This synchronistic confluence of events indicated to me that it was time to release my results.

Hence I have spent the past few months preparing them and they are available at:

and there are more discussions on peripherally related issues at:


The models and the theory are still in development and require considerable work but the confluence of parallels and correlations is strong enough to suggest that much may be learnt from these models and that they may point the way toward the unification of quantum physics and general relativity; the unification of system theory and string theory; the development of a truly general "Theory of Everything" that applies equally well to all levels of complexity, not just the lowest; the unification of the materialist and spiritualist perspectives; a general method for the programming of a quantum computer; a fully developed mathematical general system theory and thus the unification of all conceptual frameworks by a single coherent underlying metaphysics; and the development of advanced system engineering and analysis methods that would give rise to a new technological paradigm with countless new technologies and methodologies related to the field of complex dynamical systems such as ecosystems, social systems, biological or physiological systems and so forth.

These developments are but a small part of a vast paradigm shift that is transforming our concept of the cosmos, of ourselves and of the very nature of reality. Over time this science will revolutionise the whole planet and will form the foundation of our future development, thereby allowing us to overcome the problems that arise from a crude mechanistic conception of reality and to rise to heights of wisdom and power hitherto unimaginable. However that is some way off yet and first there is a great deal of groundwork to be undertaken.

I hope that you will peruse the information that I have provided and any questions, comments or suggestions will be warmly welcomed. I am happy to assist others in any way I can and I am also in need of assistance in this work. I am only one person and this work has taken me somewhat out of my depth and into fields in which there are others who have far greater expertise and experience than myself. In the pursuit of understanding and truth we can all benefit by working together and sharing that which we know, for the greater benefit of all.
