General Systems Theory


Mechanism argues that all phenomenon are reducible to physics and explicable by math. Therefore the Theory of Mind at present is that the Mind is localized in the brain. Structure and process is electro chemical coordination. There are many problems as to where per se one’s name, John is localized. Is it one specific folder or more than one. It appears that if one part of the brain is injured another part may take over some of the functions of the injured area.

In theism, the Logos or whatever Mind in the Deity exists first. Our mind is localized in our brain. However it is connected in some manner to the Eternal Mind.

As Prigogine noted, "the basis for any natural law describing the evolution of social systems must be the physical laws governing open systems, i.e., systems embedded in their environment with which
they exchange matter and energy." (Prigogine et al., 1977, p. 2.) Without reducing the study of psyche to physics, systems theory promises to offer a powerful conceptual approach for grasping
the interrelation of human beings, and the associated cognitive structures and processes specific to them, in both society and nature.
