There are several different attempts at describing how entities have emerged at different times in nature, with different dynamics, and composed of different parts, but these are usually restricted to those entities WITHIN a domain or discipline, e.g. astronomy, cosmology, chemistry or biology where Miller and Urey received the Nobel Prize for their experiments on the Origins of Life. Essentially these are reductionist approaches to ORIGINS.
In our work, we use a rigorously transdisciplinary approach that describes each of these emergences of a new scalar level of entity as actually origins of new systems. Comparing them afterwards shows similarities we call the isomorphies. These isomorphic patterns, processes, and pathologies are the SP3T theory that we have devoted an entire new website to explaining. Go to:
We have found that describing these emergence phenomena have happened again and again from the Big Bang to modern civilization. It is as if Nature keeps evolving or emerging the SAME SYSTEM over and over, just at different scales, giving different components. We have organized these emergence events into a series of cycles that are connected from the Big Bang to human societies and thoughts. We find that these cycles are interconnected and continuous such that we describe a UNBROKEN SEQUENCE OF ORIGINS without any gaps or anthropocentric-based separations.
Dr. Troncale has presented this theory consistently from 1972 to the present in the following venues:
- his first paper in systems in 1972 which was awarded the “best paper” for the Far West Region of ISGSR Conference that year.
- Course at UCSD, Frontiers of Science, 138: Cosmic Evolution and Emergence. With many guest speakers including Nobel Laureates.
- Two weeks of presentations at University of Alaska, Anchorage.
Other worker have lately presented parts of this Unbroken Sequence as shown in these chronological power points of related work:
