This quantity represents the 1st which interfaces with astronomy because the fulcrum of the sciences. It provides complete expression to the human ardour for the skies. Advancing human civilization has opened up and matured this ardour into the great technology of astronomy. Advancing science’s quest for the 1st rules of lifestyles meets the ontopoietic generative emblems of existence, the point of interest of the recent Enlightenment. It provides a variety of views illustrating how the interaction among humans and the celestial realm has expert civilizational traits. students and philosophers debate in physics and biology, the findings of that are starting a extra inclusive, wider photograph of the universe. the several types of the common order and of lifestyles the following provided, all aiming on the first ideas of existence—accord with the phenomenology/ontopoiesis of lifestyles in the logos-prompted primogenital circulate of changing into and motion, which issues to a way forward for progressing culture.

13, 274) suggested that the problems of mankind can be solved only on the basis of a new world picture of the living Universe. What we are proposing here is a new shift in our scientific world picture, one that complements the present physicalistic world picture by an essentially complete, biofriendly one, to serve as the basis of a universal science that integrates physics, biology and psychology in an elegant and exact manner, on the basis of first principles. Perhaps surprisingly, this integrated natural science proves to be the universal science that has fundamental applications for the human sciences, including sociology as well.

We can answer our question, when conceiving that natural objects as consisting from phenomena, laws and first principles. If so, then our answer to the question above is: The wind knows how to blow, because wind consists not only from atoms and molecules, but also from laws of Nature telling it how to behave in its phenomenal aspects. Not only phenomena, laws and principles form an organic unit, but also the physical, biological and psychological aspects of behavior. How can we conceive this unity?

But because the dropped bird is active, it flies like a bird to the endpoint B. Therefore, the biologically decided and consecutively physically realized and observable process of the flight of the bird dropped from the Pisa Tower leads to a physically observable trajectory which cannot be calculated from the initial conditions plus the physical laws. The related problem is: What are the processes controlling the initial conditions? We only mention here that, within the realm of physical phenomena, spontaneous processes, fluctuations, instabilities, and quantum indeterminacy are physically not (completely) determined processes that nonetheless contribute to the physical behavior, occasionally, randomly or sporadically.
