NJournal 15.0 Nemetics and/or Dialectal Materialism

Part one:

from wikipedia:

Dialectical materialism was inspired by dialectic and  materialist philosophical traditions. The main idea of dialectical materialism lies in the concept of the evolution of the natural world and the emergence of new qualities of being at new stages of evolution. . . . the higher level of existence emerges from and has its roots in the lower; that the higher level constitutes a new order of being with its irreducible laws; and that this process of evolutionary advance is governed by laws of development which reflect basic properties of 'matter in motion as a whole'."[3]

The concept of dialectic (as a unity of opposites) existed in the philosophy of Heraclitus of Ephesus, who proposed that everything is in constant change, as a result of inner strife and opposition.[8][9][10] Hence, the history of the dialectical method is the history of philosophy.[11]

Materialism is a form of philosophical monism which holds that matter is the fundamental substance in nature, and that all phenomena, including mental phenomena and consciousness, are rooted in material interactions.

Nemetics encodes material interactions as Neme Exchange. The important characteristic of a Neme is that if can be quantized  in the service of analysis. Once quantified it can be measured. Once measured it can be managed.   Note: managed, not controlled.  

Every neme exchange has three components. The affective component is coded as the EmoWave. The Cognitive Component is coded as the CogWave. The Material component is coded as the PhysWave.

EmoWaves and CogWaves are not directly observable, either in an individual or society as whole. Both waves are made visible through when they manifest in the PhysWave.  Examples include books, movies, letters, bookeeping records, folk songs. The visibles of the Cog Wave is the use of language.
