2: Articles
3. Sections

Introduction to Derivatives

A derivative is a rate of change over time.

Infinite number of derivatives

Living Algorithm derivatives for Life; Calculus derivatives for Matter

Traditional derivatives computed via calculus’ mathe-magical processes, hence intimidating.

The Fundamentals of Calculus

Differentiation produces Derivatives: Instantaneous Rates of Change

Integration: an infinite sum of infinitely small derivatives comes up with something.

Instantaneous derivatives ideal for describing Instantaneous Matter.

Newton's Law of Motion: Automatic Processes, no Cause & Effect, with Instantaneous Matter

Differential equations, a combination of differentiation and integration, employed to characterize all material interactions.

All Material Interactions are Automatic

If all is Matter, then there is no choice.

If Living Matter exerts choice, then it is not only Matter

An abundance of evidence indicates that humans & cells are involved in decision-making.

Life must have another component.

The Living Algorithm’s Derivatives

Interested in animate systems, not the inanimate systems of calculus

Is there a mathematics of change/calculus for human beings?

Humans & other living systems thrive on Meaningful Information.

Traditional Information Theory addresses Information without Meaning

Electronic digital information is inert without humans to impart meaning.

Meaningful information employed to make choices

Electronic Information contains Potential Meaning

Life must digest Inert Information to transform it from potential to actual meaning.

Living Systems impart Meaning by understanding Changes.

Meaningful Information is Dynamic, not Static like Electronic Information.

History is the prime Difference between Static and Dynamic Information/Meaning = Information with History

Life digests Inert Information, transforming it into Dynamic Information

The Living Algorithm Algorithm creates Dynamic Information (Inert Information with History)

Mathematics of the Moment Notebook: Living Algorithm uniquely suited to be Life's Computational System

Differences: Calculus Derivatives vs. Data Stream Derivatives

Discretized Information vs. Continuous Matter

Discretized Data Stream Derivatives vs. Instantaneous Material Derivatives

Velocity & Acceleration: the 1st 2 derivatives

Derivatives based in larger time increments are averages of smaller time increments.

As the time increment & distance traveled approach 0, the rate of change remains constant.

Derivatives of calculus based upon differences between adjacent points.

Instantaneous Material Derivatives isolated from the Past.

Data Stream Derivatives intimately connected to the Past

Calculus Derivatives isolated; Data Stream Derivatives connected

Differences between Calculus Derivatives and Data Stream Derivatives

Incremental nature of data stream dynamics enables possibility of choice for Living Systems

Living Algorithm System produces Dynamic Information from Inert Information

Only the 1st two derivatives are significant in the material dynamics.

Infinite number of Derivatives

Force is a Function of Acceleration in Material Dynamics.

All other equations in Physics derive from Force Equation.

Higher Data Stream Derivatives of great significance in the dynamics of information

Author initially dismisses higher data stream derivatives.

Data Stream Dynamics contains scalar derivatives and directed derivatives.

Higher scalar derivatives provide little meaning.

Higher 'vector' derivatives, the Liminals, seem to mimic subconscious mental processes.

Core Concept Approach to teaching based upon the 10-minute rule.

Continuous Approach & the 'Eyes Open; Nobody Home' Phenomenon

2 Data Streams chosen to simulate 2 Teaching Techniques. Data Stream Derivatives examined.

Continuous Derivatives suggest 'Eyes Open; Nobody Home' Phenomenon

Gravity, a constant acceleration, an influential force

Consciousness, a constant acceleration, but devoid of comprehension

The Mathematics of the 'Eyes Open; Nobody Home' Phenomenon

The Mathematics of the Core Concept Approach

Constant Content maximizes Derivative Change; Changing Content minimizes Change.

Higher Derivatives significant to Living Matter; Insignificant to Inert Matter.

Continuous Info Flow broken into Discrete Chunks for 2 Reasons.

Data Stream's Discrete Chunks called Increments.

6. Data Stream Force: a Historical Perspective

2: Articles
3. Section


Galileo (1564-1642) challenges Aristotle (384-322 BC)

Galileo challenges traditional wisdom of Aristotle

Experience invalidates Aristotle’s Theory that Objects fall at the same speed

Galileo sets up scientific experiments to see how they fall

Inclined Plane Experiments: Acceleration

Inclined plane to slow descent (∆d)

Water with finger as stopper (∆t)

Initial results: Ball moves quicker and quicker

Math reveals that Velocity’s rate of change (Acceleration) is constant

Acceleration to Force to Energy to World Transformation

First time: Mathematics employed as a tool to analyze physical change – dynamics

Current study employs same Mathematics to analyze dynamics of behavior

Like Galileo's studies, Triple Pulse Study based upon Acceleration

Weights & Sizes of Falling Bodies not a factor

Testing Aristotelian Theory that size is a factor in the speed of falling objects

Aristotle's hypothesis disproved: Size & Weight not a factor in falling speed

All Objects fall at same acceleration regardless of Weight or Size

Matter’s Inertia

Ancient: objects move to the natural state of rest.

Renaissance: Object’s natural state is constant speed

Greco-Roman view associated with animism

Inclined Plane Results dispel Material Animism

As incline flattens, acceleration decreases, until zero

Inertia: Objects, natural resting state, a constant speed

Resistance to Newton’s Material Attractions

Results lead to Magic Question

State of rest and state of constant speed equivalent

Magic Question: What environmental factors change natural state?

If we can identify environmental factors, we can manipulate them to our advantage:

Took centuries to unlock Door to Technology with Galileo’s Key

Galileo’s enormous Impact

Newton standing on Galileo’s shoulders

Copernicus’ idea catalyzed Galileo’s modern scientific method

Emerging Materialist view leads to Scientism

Descartes (1596-1650) questions Traditional Assumptions

Scientific Skepticism challenges current paradigm

Descartes employs Deductive Reasoning to determine Truth.

Euclid inspires Descartes to only employ Deductive Reasoning to build his System.

Exclusive Deductive Approach denies Power of Induction

Descartes: "Mind & Body are separate. God's natural laws rule the Body."

Father of Scientific Determinism

Conservation of Momentum

Deductive reasoning leads to amazingly accurate conclusions

Descartes noticed that Momentum is conserved when 2 Objects Collide.

Descartes accurately infers Universal Law: Conservation of Momentum

Descartes generalizes Matter’s mechanistic behavior to Humans

Universal Momentum supports inertia, undermines animism

Two-Body Interactions generalized to Universe

Descartes was one of Newton’s Giants

Descriptive Studies of Galileo and Descartes require a Causal Mechanism

Descartes’ work descriptive; no causal mechanism

Author initially employs Living Algorithm in a descriptive fashion with no causal mechanism

Descriptions require a Causal Mechanism to acquire deeper Scientific Validity

Newton (1642-1726)

Galileo & Descartes provide descriptions, but no mechanism for change

Newton: Accelerating Mass to change the Natural State

Galileo’s Results + Newton’s Laws of Motion = Gravity

Adding Force to the Structure of Dynamics

The Mathematics

Force a function of distance, time, and mass

Force: the 3rd floor of the Architecture of Dynamics

Newton’s Force provides Mechanism for change in Data Stream Dynamics

Force of Attention changes Data Stream Momentum

Attention's attraction to Acceleration creates a Force
