Absolutely Dynamic System Derivation


Jump to: navigation, search

This is a derivation of Absolutely Dynamic System, and it is based on the derivation on the older web page at http://members.fortunecity.com/tkorrovi by Tarvo Korrovits. This derivation does not prove that a system is Absolutely Dynamic (which would be much more difficult to do), but it derives a system which is as dynamic (changing) as possible.

In order for a system to be able to model every external process, we need a system where everything can change; such a system could be called an Absolutely Dynamic System. Consider that the requirement that everything can change means that any system can emerge within a bigger system. This means that we have a system with a changing structure. The system itself consists of points connected with links. A point with its connections to other points is called a knot. Based on the condition that everything can change, consider that the points and the links have no properties, otherwise they should be able to have all possible properties for a system to be absolutely dynamic. You are left with a system that has a changing structure, this means that new knots can emerge, and such changes can cause the emergence or disappearance of other knots.

As a result of emergence of a new knot, some other knots have to disappear. If we look at a new knot and adjacent knot (the knot that which the new knot is connected) then we see that both the new knot and the adjacent knot are connected with some other knots. It can be that both the new knot and the adjacent knot are connected with the same knot, but there can also be no common knot with what both the new knot and the adjacent knot are connected with. This is the simplest possibility to make a distinction between the pairs mentioned above: two knots may have a common knot, which is connected to both of them, or there may not be any such knot.

So the knots which have no common knots with the new knot would disappear. But some new knots have to emerge. Because the common knots are the criteria there are three possibilities to build new knots: the new knot would point to the common knots, the non-common knots or to both of them. In case of the first possibility the number of knots in the system would probably constantly decrease, and in case of the third possibility the number of knots would constantly increase. So the only possibility with no such constant tendency, is that the new knot has to point to non-common knots.

With that, the derivation of the Absolutely Dynamic System ends. What we have is a system which constantly changes itself only because of the changes in its structure. Such system has no regular grid. Trying to interpret the result of this derivation, creating the knots may be considered as a form of association, and deleting the knots may be considered as a form of natural selection. Such a system interacts with its environment by so-called i/o knots, which are ordinary knots, except that on getting a pulse from the environment, such a knot becomes new, and acts then as an ordinary new knot. When a new knot is created with such a knot, the knot gives a pulse to the environment.
