Nemetical Psychology

The contention is that a nemetic framework will apply to any Complex Adaptive System. In my opinion psychology is the study of Complex Adaptive Systems in one's brain and body.

Following is one series of pictures that might capture a nervous breakdown as a stage of bi polar disorder.

 The setup. Complex boundaries. 
Low Frequency. Low brightness. Porous walls. 
Fixed Border around the window.

Resilience Nemetics Ripple Tank Simulator

My conjecture is that it is possible to model resilience with the Ripple Tank wave simulator. The notion is that if one can go from maximum brightness to minimum brightness to the original state of the 3d wave coherence that is a mark of "Resilience.

Figure 2.

Figure 3.

With these settings the wave form retains coherence at any level of Brightness.  My hunch is that "brightness" will turn out to be a surrogate for "Amplitude." 

My further conjecture is the Golden Spiral will turn out to be the most resilient shape of constraints.

Playing with Nemetics - Flock of Birds

Is a flock of birds a high performance team? 

1. The Setup

2. nStrings begin to form
(the points speak the same language)

3. nStrings Time X + a

Neme Exchange increases as points pull together.

4. Neme Exchange increases pull and new nStrings emerge

5. Time X+ A of Figure 4
nTube emerges

Another 3d View of Figure 5

6. The emergence of Authentic Constraints
Clear Goals, Explicit Rules, Time frame for deliverables.

7. The effect of InAuthentic Constraints of Time and Space.

Ripple Tank Simulator as a Tool for Nemetics 1.0

Nemetics is an approach to develop insights in any complex adaptive system that apply to all complex adaptive systems. In the service of that approach we have been playing with a wave simulator called Ripple Tank. You can find it here -

Below are some results as we fine tune the tool for the languge of nemes, nStrings, nTubes, nShapes, neme exchange and Authentic Constraints. In the case you are looking at a first attempt to create pictures of BiPolar Disorder. Since the writer is now successfully managing his own BiPolar condition, these are pictures that resonate with me.

First a word about the model.  Fig 1 below was created by hand. The contention is that an algorithm exists, which will be developed in the future to create any number of set ups.  In a future post the algorithm will be posted. Since the model is merely a java applet and the code is available at the link above, the hope is the open source community or the growing number of Nemeticians will make the fine tunes needed to get to the next stage of investigation.

Figure 1. 

Is created by running the app with no constraints. It is stopped arbitrarily and the blue and red lines follow the shape of interference patterns. In this case the lines to add were chosen by the serendipity  of personal choices.

The model has 3 levels of edge condition being porous. The blue lines are most porous. The red lines with Fixed Edges unclicked are the next level. Red lines with Fixed Edges clicked are the least porous available.
