HPCT to me after much philosophical
to-ing and fro-ing in my mind are really just qualitative descriptions of energy
and entropy production.
I have looked at each
HPCT levels separately and together as a whole and their associations and can come
to only one conclusion that they are qualitative descriptions of energy and
entropy production, that is they are the perceptions of reality (as per the PCT
model). So we control these and hence what we really control is our own
Hence my proposition is that
the mission of life is ”to control and concentrate our internal energies and
accumulate and control our external energies”.
This statement is not
such a far cry from Darwin’s concept of Evolution” the inner
creative factor; Variation operating spontaneously and somewhat mysteriously
inside organisms and modifying their hereditary structures and functions in
slight degrees- and an external factor Natural Selection which operates selectively
on these slight variations. (from JC Smuts Holism and Evolution).
I think the energy
concept brings PCT closer to Evolutionary theory and thermodynamics.
Just like the classical equations
could not explain the quantum concepts we have a similar issue in PCT. The mechanical
equations cannot describe the energy ones and vice versa.
