STAGES OF COMPLEXITY

STAGE 1---GENERATIVE CYCLE (Mutation, Recombination, Expression, Selection)
SOURCE (HEAVEN TRIGRAM to HEAVEN TRIGRAM)
(Mutations generate new genes and add them to the gene pool)

STAGE 2
RECOMBINATION (HEAVEN to LAKE TRIGRAM)
(Genes in the gene pool are recombined through crossing over, sexual reproduction,  
syngamy  and hybridization)

STAGE 3
MALADAPTIVE EMERGENCE (HEAVEN to THUNDER TRIGRAM)
(Various gene combinations express themselves to various degrees at various levels of
adaptation to the changing environment in patterns governed by the laws of probability)

STAGE 4
NATURAL SELECTION AND EXTINCTION (HEAVEN to FLAME)
(These gene combinations are subject to natural selection as the forms associated with
them are subject to extinction as the result of failure to adapt to the changing
environment)

STAGE 5---REGULATIVE CYCLE (Set Point, Feedback, Property, Segregation)
GENETIC SET POINT (THUNDER TRIGRAM to WIND TRIGRAM)
(Genetic set points (screened for adaptive relevance by natural selection) establish
thermostats that allow the development of corrective feedback)

STAGE 6
CORRECTIVE FEED BACK MECHANISMS (THUNDER TRIGRAM to
WATER-PIT TRIGRAM) (Feed back mechanism controlled by gene determined set
points maintain system homeostasis and stability)

STAGE 7
PHENOTYPIC TRAITS RESULT (THUNDER TRIGRAM to EARTH TRIGRAM)
(Feed back mechanism generate phenotypic results, measurable differences in
adaptation to the environment, measurable properties of the organism)

STAGE 8
ANALYSIS AND ISOLATION (THUNDER TRIGRAM to MOUNTAIN TRIGRAM)
(Measurements and analyzed and the resulting information is processed and stored for
comparison with genetic set points, genetic set points are conserved through various
forms of genetic isolation and species formation)

STAGE 9---CREATIVE CYCLE (Variation, Mixture, Emergence, Extinction)
MUTATION (EARTH TRIGRAM to HEAVEN ) (Isolated species genomes are subject
to mutation in various forms)

STAGE 10
HYBRIDS (EARTH TRIGRAM to LAKE TRIGRAM) (Mutant versions of isolated
genomes are recombined by crossing over, hybrization, sexual reproduction and thus
generate various hybrid combinations within isolated gene pools)

STAGE 11
EXPRESSION (EARTH TRIGRAM to THUNDER) (Hybrid versions of isolated gene
combinations generate various expression in response to the changing environment)

STAGE 12
SELECTION (EARTH TRIGRAM to FLAME) (Maladapted expressions of hybrid
combinations of isolated genes are removed from the gene pool by extinction)

STAGE 13---REFINEMENT CYCLE (Adaptive Peak, Mechanism, Measure, Purity)
ADAPTIVE PEAK (WIND TRIGRAM to WIND) (Genes are driven to adaptive peaks
through screening by natural selection on hybrid forms of mutant genes in isolate gene
pools resulting in highly adapted genes that establish highly effective feed back
mechanism set points in respect to the changing environment)

STAGE 14
COMPLEX MECHANISMS (WIND to WATER-PIT) (Feedback mechanism operate
that generate complex interactions maintaining complex systems of homeostasis in a
well organized super system)

STAGE 15
MEASURED FITNESS (WIND to EARTH) (Accurate measurements are achieve
through which the organism is able to determine the degree to which feedback is
working in support of homeostasis)

STAGE 16
SEGREGATION (WIND to MOUNTAIN) (Data input from measurement of
environmental responses effectiveness is screened and segregated in ways that support
correct comparisons with genetically determined set points.  Genes are effectively
isolated from mixing with genes that would dilute the degree of fitness for current
conditions in the changing world)

(START CYCLE ALL OVER AGAIN AT SOURCE)
_____________________________________________________________________

The above cycles can be used for a developing soul:

Jiva originates as a mutant form of primal here and now phenomenological time
Jiva recombines and mixes with other souls
Combination of souls make an attachment to a physical expression
That expression dies and generates karma, leaves action and thought patterns

The essence of these is the soul, a series of inner set points in primal time
These set points trip dharma-karma feedback mechanisms, trip an astrology of rebirth
The soul, and its associate souls, are reborn attached to a physical body
They experience the sense and the life of that body, they develop a mind

The images, the creative essence of the here and now time of the soul endures
Its mutant creations recombine with others to develop a new attachment body
This combination of souls generates expression in a body that matches its thoughts
This attachment body dies and releases its accumulated karma and individual souls

The soul endures on a more enlightened and ideal level
It develops a more harmonic and complex astrological fate
It emerges in a more successful and significant phenotype
It develops a more enlightened mind, a buddha mind that finds a higher level of source.

It can be used for a society:

Indo aryan tribes function at the aboriginal productive hunter- gather level
They combine with other tribes, domesticate animals, plants, accumulate new ideas
They trade and market, generate a more complex expression in the Germanic tribes
These tribes develop warlike practices, for example Viking raids

These tribes are absorbed into feudal states that mature into renaissance city states
The city states are absorbed in turn into Baroque absolutism
Industrialism pushes absolutism in the direction of democracy and utilitarianism
Local federal and republican developments isolate from the larger system

The British government explores the hunter-gather dominated outlying areas
It recombines them and absorbs them as part of the British Empire
It uses their products in an emerging marketing and consumer culture
It is drawn into war with external states still under the influence of warlike notions.

Gradually, paradigms are developed for some sort of peaceful renaissance
A world system is developed to maintain peace under a United Nations
Industrial culture and democracy bring new levels of scientific enlightenment
Local cultures isolate, segregate out as Denmark, Norway, isolate from global chaos.

The cycle will continue in new forms:
stage 1 as aboriginal production, hunter, gatherer
stage 2 as recombinant tribal
stage 3 as trade
stage 4 as exploiting, raiding
stage 5 as hoarding, slave owning city states, classical
stage 6 as receiving, slave owning empire
stage 7 as utilizing, slave owning utilitarianism
stage 8 as segregating, isolating
stage 9 as feudal production
stage 10 as recombinant kingdom
stage 11 as emergent commercial
stage 12 as war and plunder
stage 13 as renaissance city state
stage 14 as absolutism
stage 15 as industrial democracy
stage 16 as nationalism and isolation
________________________________________________________________
Where the degree of increased complexity is low, there will be backward and
sideways movement, for example in art, movement from a stage 13 renaissance
classicism forward to a stage 14 Baroque and a stage 15 realism and stage 16
impressionism, but also backward to stage 9 romanticism, stage 10 symbolism, stage 11
expressionism, and stage 12 cubism and dada.  In fact, it is not clear that the notion of
stages is appropriate at all for these fads in artistic tempers that are not so much stages
and fashions in which one face of the buried pyramid and octahedron of the eight
trigrams is favored over another, thus:
HEAVEN TRIGRAM and productive orientation and romantic temper vs.
EARTH TRIGRAM and utilizing orientation and realistic temper

WIND TRIGRAM and hoarding orientation and classical temper vs.
THUNDER TRIGRAM and marketing orientation and expressionist temper

MOUNTAIN TRIGRAM and segregating orientation and impressionist temper vs.
LAKE TRIGRAM and recombinant orientation and symbolist temper

WATERPIT TRIGRAM and receptive orientation and baroque temper vs.
FLAME TRIGRAM and exploitative orientation and cubist-dada temper.
