Martha Stark MD – 21 Feb 2009 – The Wisdom of the Matrix – From Chaos to Coherence.pptx

how does the living system evolve from disorder to order? how does it evolve from compromised health and disease (i.e., disrupted ease of flow of information and energy) to optimal health, orderedness, and ease of flow? we know, from the second law of thermodynamics (entropy), that closed systems will tend to "run down" over time, devolving from order to disorder but the living system is an open system and therefore ever receptive to regulatory input from the outside, which input will prompt ongoing mobilization of the system's adaptive (homeostatic) mechanisms, thereby enabling the system to evolve, over time, from less order to more order, from disorder to order, from chaos to coherence

THE WISDOM
OF THE MATRIX:
FROM CHAOS TO COHERENCE
“The world breaks everyone; but, in the end, people
are stronger at the broken places.”
Ernest Hemingway
Martha Stark, M.D.
marthastarkmd@hms.harvard.edu
2009 FSM Symposium / February 21, 2009
HOW DOES COHERENCE EMERGE FROM CHAOS?
HOW DOES THE LIVING SYSTEM EVOLVE FROM DISORDER TO ORDER?
HOW DOES IT EVOLVE FROM COMPROMISED HEALTH AND DISEASE
(i.e., DISRUPTED EASE OF FLOW OF INFORMATION AND ENERGY)
TO OPTIMAL HEALTH, ORDEREDNESS, AND EASE OF FLOW?
WE KNOW, FROM THE SECOND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS (ENTROPY),
THAT CLOSED SYSTEMS WILL TEND TO “RUN DOWN” OVER TIME,
DEVOLVING FROM ORDER TO DISORDER
BUT THE LIVING SYSTEM IS AN OPEN SYSTEM AND THEREFORE
EVER RECEPTIVE TO REGULATORY INPUT FROM THE OUTSIDE,
WHICH INPUT WILL PROMPT ONGOING MOBILIZATION
OF THE SYSTEM’S ADAPTIVE (HOMEOSTATIC) MECHANISMS,
THEREBY ENABLING THE SYSTEM TO EVOLVE, OVER TIME,
FROM LESS ORDER TO MORE ORDER, FROM DISORDER TO ORDER
CHAOS (COMPLEXITY) THEORY IS ALL ABOUT THESE
SELF – ORGANIZING, COMPLEX ADAPTIVE, NONLINEAR DYNAMIC SYSTEMS
THAT EVOLVE FROM CHAOS TO COHERENCE BY WAY OF
ERRATIC, SEEMINGLY RANDOM, SUDDEN, UNEXPECTED, UNPREDICTABLE,
AND SOMETIMES DRAMATIC UPS AND DOWNS
HOW DOES COHERENCE
EMERGE FROM CHAOS?
HOW EXACTLY DOES THIS EVOLUTION / SELF – ORGANIZATION OCCUR?
IS THE PROGRESSION FROM CHAOS TO COHERENCE
SIMPLY A MONOTONIC PROGRESSION,
THE ORDEREDNESS OF THE SYSTEM
CONSISTENTLY INCREASING AND NEVER DECREASING?
THE SYSTEM ADVANCING IN A FAIRLY STRAIGHTFORWARD FASHION
BY WAY OF DIRECT INPUT FROM THE ENVIRONMENT …
THE GREATER THE INPUT, THE BETTER THE RESULT?
OR IS IT PERHAPS LESS DIRECT THAN THAT?
UNPREDICTABLE, ERRATIC, UP AND DOWN?
THE SYSTEM, IN RESPONSE TO ENVIRONMENTAL INPUT,
ADVANCING IN A NONLINEAR FASHION BY WAY OF
ONGOING CYCLES OF DISRUPTION AND REPAIR,
DISORGANIZATION AND ADAPTIVE RECONSTITUTION
AT EVER HIGHER LEVELS
OF ORDER, COMPLEXITY, INTEGRATION, AND COHERENCE …
FROM CHAOS TO COHERENCE
CHAOS – SEEMING RANDOMNESS BUT AN UNDERLYING ORDER
THAT EMERGES OVER TIME AS THE SYSTEM EVOLVES
A TEMPESTUOUS RAINSTORM, INITIALLY DISORDERED AND CHAOTIC,
MAY GATHER FORCE OVER TIME, BECOMING EVER MORE ORDERED
AND COHERENT (LASER – LIKE IN ITS INTENSITY) AS IT ADVANCES
FROM A TROPICAL STORM TO A CATEGORY 5 HURRICANE
BY VIRTUE OF ITS UNDERLYING (CHAOTIC) STRUCTURE,
A SELF – ORGANIZING SYSTEM WILL EVOLVE
TO EVER INCREASING ORDER, COMPLEXITY, AND COHERENCE
IN RESPONSE TO INPUT FROM THE OUTSIDE
COHERENCE SPEAKS BOTH
TO ORDERED PATTERNING WITHIN A SINGLE SYSTEM
AND TO SYNCHRONIZATION BETWEEN MULTIPLE SYSTEMS
FEMALE ROOMMATES BEGIN TO SYNCHRONIZE THEIR MENSTRUAL CYCLES
THIS SYNCHRONIZATION AN EMERGENT PROPERTY OF A SELF – ORGANIZING SYSTEM
FIREFLIES BEGIN TO FLASH ON AND OFF IN UNISON
PHASE – LOCKING OF BIORHYTHMS
ORDER EMERGES FROM DISORDER AS AN OPEN SYSTEM EVOLVES
FROM CHAOS TO COHERENCE
ORDER EMERGES FROM DISORDER AS AN OPEN SYSTEM EVOLVES
IN DEFIANCE OF THE SECOND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS,
WHICH HAS IT THAT CLOSED SYSTEMS WILL TEND
TOWARDS DISORDER AND RANDOMNESS AS THEY DEVOLVE
ENTROPY / THERMODYNAMIC EQUILIBRIUM / DISORGANIZATION /
DESTABILIZATION / DISSIPATION / DEGENERATION
LIFE IS SUSTAINED IN DEFIANCE OF ENTROPY
IN ESSENCE, LIFE IS AN ONGOING STRUGGLE BETWEEN
DISORDER AND ORDEREDNESS
RANDOM DISTRIBUTION AND PRECISELY ORDERED STRUCTURE
THE INEXORABLE FORCE OF ENTROPY AND
THE LIFE – ENHANCING POWER OF SELF – ORGANIZATION
CHAOS AND COHERENCE
ENTROPY – DEVOLVING FROM ORDER TO DISORDER
SELF – ORGANIZATION – EVOLVING FROM DISORDER TO ORDER
THE HALLMARK OF A SYSTEM’S RESILIENCE
IS ITS ABILITY TO SELF – ORGANIZE
COHERENCE
WHEN TWO WAVES MEET, THEY “INTERFERE” WITH EACH ANOTHER
IF THE TWO WAVES ARE OUT OF SYNC (i.e., out of phase),
THE TROUGHS WILL CANCEL OUT THE PEAKS
AND THERE WILL BE NO RESULTING WAVE
(DESTRUCTIVE INTERFERENCE)
BUT IF THE TWO WAVES ARE IN SYNC,
THEIR PEAKS WILL COINCIDE
AND THEY WILL COMBINE TO FORM A BIGGER WAVE
WITH INCREASED AMPLITUDE
(CONSTRUCTIVE INTERFERENCE)
IN THE CASE OF LIGHT WAVES, THIS SYNCHRONICITY
WILL MANIFEST AS INCREASED BRIGHTNESS AND,
WHEN ALL THE LIGHT WAVES ARE SYNCHRONIZED,
WILL ULTIMATELY GENERATE A LASER BEAM
COHERENCE – INCREASED AMPLITUDE
BUT SAME WAVELENGTH AND FREQUENCY

Martha Stark MD – 21 Feb 2009 – The Wisdom of the Matrix – From Chaos to Coherence.pptx

  • 1. THE WISDOM OF THE MATRIX: FROM CHAOS TO COHERENCE “The world breaks everyone; but, in the end, people are stronger at the broken places.” Ernest Hemingway Martha Stark, M.D. marthastarkmd@hms.harvard.edu 2009 FSM Symposium / February 21, 2009
  • 2. HOW DOES COHERENCE EMERGE FROM CHAOS? HOW DOES THE LIVING SYSTEM EVOLVE FROM DISORDER TO ORDER? HOW DOES IT EVOLVE FROM COMPROMISED HEALTH AND DISEASE (i.e., DISRUPTED EASE OF FLOW OF INFORMATION AND ENERGY) TO OPTIMAL HEALTH, ORDEREDNESS, AND EASE OF FLOW? WE KNOW, FROM THE SECOND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS (ENTROPY), THAT CLOSED SYSTEMS WILL TEND TO “RUN DOWN” OVER TIME, DEVOLVING FROM ORDER TO DISORDER BUT THE LIVING SYSTEM IS AN OPEN SYSTEM AND THEREFORE EVER RECEPTIVE TO REGULATORY INPUT FROM THE OUTSIDE, WHICH INPUT WILL PROMPT ONGOING MOBILIZATION OF THE SYSTEM’S ADAPTIVE (HOMEOSTATIC) MECHANISMS, THEREBY ENABLING THE SYSTEM TO EVOLVE, OVER TIME, FROM LESS ORDER TO MORE ORDER, FROM DISORDER TO ORDER CHAOS (COMPLEXITY) THEORY IS ALL ABOUT THESE SELF – ORGANIZING, COMPLEX ADAPTIVE, NONLINEAR DYNAMIC SYSTEMS THAT EVOLVE FROM CHAOS TO COHERENCE BY WAY OF ERRATIC, SEEMINGLY RANDOM, SUDDEN, UNEXPECTED, UNPREDICTABLE, AND SOMETIMES DRAMATIC UPS AND DOWNS
  • 3. HOW DOES COHERENCE EMERGE FROM CHAOS? HOW EXACTLY DOES THIS EVOLUTION / SELF – ORGANIZATION OCCUR? IS THE PROGRESSION FROM CHAOS TO COHERENCE SIMPLY A MONOTONIC PROGRESSION, THE ORDEREDNESS OF THE SYSTEM CONSISTENTLY INCREASING AND NEVER DECREASING? THE SYSTEM ADVANCING IN A FAIRLY STRAIGHTFORWARD FASHION BY WAY OF DIRECT INPUT FROM THE ENVIRONMENT … THE GREATER THE INPUT, THE BETTER THE RESULT? OR IS IT PERHAPS LESS DIRECT THAN THAT? UNPREDICTABLE, ERRATIC, UP AND DOWN? THE SYSTEM, IN RESPONSE TO ENVIRONMENTAL INPUT, ADVANCING IN A NONLINEAR FASHION BY WAY OF ONGOING CYCLES OF DISRUPTION AND REPAIR, DISORGANIZATION AND ADAPTIVE RECONSTITUTION AT EVER HIGHER LEVELS OF ORDER, COMPLEXITY, INTEGRATION, AND COHERENCE …
  • 4. FROM CHAOS TO COHERENCE CHAOS – SEEMING RANDOMNESS BUT AN UNDERLYING ORDER THAT EMERGES OVER TIME AS THE SYSTEM EVOLVES A TEMPESTUOUS RAINSTORM, INITIALLY DISORDERED AND CHAOTIC, MAY GATHER FORCE OVER TIME, BECOMING EVER MORE ORDERED AND COHERENT (LASER – LIKE IN ITS INTENSITY) AS IT ADVANCES FROM A TROPICAL STORM TO A CATEGORY 5 HURRICANE BY VIRTUE OF ITS UNDERLYING (CHAOTIC) STRUCTURE, A SELF – ORGANIZING SYSTEM WILL EVOLVE TO EVER INCREASING ORDER, COMPLEXITY, AND COHERENCE IN RESPONSE TO INPUT FROM THE OUTSIDE COHERENCE SPEAKS BOTH TO ORDERED PATTERNING WITHIN A SINGLE SYSTEM AND TO SYNCHRONIZATION BETWEEN MULTIPLE SYSTEMS FEMALE ROOMMATES BEGIN TO SYNCHRONIZE THEIR MENSTRUAL CYCLES THIS SYNCHRONIZATION AN EMERGENT PROPERTY OF A SELF – ORGANIZING SYSTEM FIREFLIES BEGIN TO FLASH ON AND OFF IN UNISON PHASE – LOCKING OF BIORHYTHMS ORDER EMERGES FROM DISORDER AS AN OPEN SYSTEM EVOLVES
  • 5. FROM CHAOS TO COHERENCE ORDER EMERGES FROM DISORDER AS AN OPEN SYSTEM EVOLVES IN DEFIANCE OF THE SECOND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS, WHICH HAS IT THAT CLOSED SYSTEMS WILL TEND TOWARDS DISORDER AND RANDOMNESS AS THEY DEVOLVE ENTROPY / THERMODYNAMIC EQUILIBRIUM / DISORGANIZATION / DESTABILIZATION / DISSIPATION / DEGENERATION LIFE IS SUSTAINED IN DEFIANCE OF ENTROPY IN ESSENCE, LIFE IS AN ONGOING STRUGGLE BETWEEN DISORDER AND ORDEREDNESS RANDOM DISTRIBUTION AND PRECISELY ORDERED STRUCTURE THE INEXORABLE FORCE OF ENTROPY AND THE LIFE – ENHANCING POWER OF SELF – ORGANIZATION CHAOS AND COHERENCE ENTROPY – DEVOLVING FROM ORDER TO DISORDER SELF – ORGANIZATION – EVOLVING FROM DISORDER TO ORDER THE HALLMARK OF A SYSTEM’S RESILIENCE IS ITS ABILITY TO SELF – ORGANIZE
  • 6. COHERENCE WHEN TWO WAVES MEET, THEY “INTERFERE” WITH EACH ANOTHER IF THE TWO WAVES ARE OUT OF SYNC (i.e., out of phase), THE TROUGHS WILL CANCEL OUT THE PEAKS AND THERE WILL BE NO RESULTING WAVE (DESTRUCTIVE INTERFERENCE) BUT IF THE TWO WAVES ARE IN SYNC, THEIR PEAKS WILL COINCIDE AND THEY WILL COMBINE TO FORM A BIGGER WAVE WITH INCREASED AMPLITUDE (CONSTRUCTIVE INTERFERENCE) IN THE CASE OF LIGHT WAVES, THIS SYNCHRONICITY WILL MANIFEST AS INCREASED BRIGHTNESS AND, WHEN ALL THE LIGHT WAVES ARE SYNCHRONIZED, WILL ULTIMATELY GENERATE A LASER BEAM COHERENCE – INCREASED AMPLITUDE BUT SAME WAVELENGTH AND FREQUENCY
  • 7. COHERENCE COHERENCE SPEAKS TO ENERGY WITH A HIGH DEGREE OF ORDER DISORDER AND DISEASE SPEAK TO A CHRONIC DISRUPTION IN BIOLOGICAL COHERENCE A HEALTHY CELL EMITS COHERENT LIGHT AN UNHEALTHY CELL EMITS CHAOTIC LIGHT IN ESSENCE, A SYSTEM’S COHERENCE IS ULTIMATELY A STORY ABOUT THE RESPONSE OF THE SYSTEM TO THE IMPACT OF THE ENVIRONMENT THE LIVING MATRIX IS A COMPLEX ADAPTIVE SYSTEM THAT IS CONTINUOUSLY EVOLVING NONLINEARLY BY WAY OF ONGOING CYCLES OF DISRUPTION AND REPAIR TO EVER HIGHER LEVELS OF ORDER AND COHERENCE IN RESPONSE TO REGULATORY INPUT FROM THE OUTSIDE THAT, IN THE MOMENT, EITHER CHALLENGES OR SUPPORTS, DISRUPTS OR REINFORCES, OVERWHELMS OR PROMPTS ADAPTATION, TRAUMATIZES OR OPTIMIZES
  • 8. THE ABILITY TO PROCESS AND INTEGRATE ONGOING CYCLES OF OVERWHELM AND ADAPTIVE RECONSTITUTION CRUCIAL TO THE EVOLUTION OF A LIVING SYSTEM FROM CHAOS TO COHERENCE WILL BE ITS ABILITY TO PROCESS AND INTEGRATE THE CUMULATIVE IMPACT OF THE MYRIAD OF ENVIRONMENTAL STRESSORS TO WHICH IT IS BEING CONTINUOUSLY EXPOSED, WHICH ABILITY WILL BE A STORY ABOUT THE SYSTEM’S UNDERLYING RESILIENCE, ADAPTABILITY, AND CAPACITY TO SELF – ORGANIZE STRESSFUL STUFF HAPPENS BUT IT’S HOW WELL WE ARE ABLE, PSYCHOLOGICALLY, PHYSIOLOGICALLY, AND ENERGETICALLY, TO PROCESS AND INTEGRATE ITS IMPACT THAT WILL MAKE OF IT EITHER A GROWTH – DISRUPTING EVENT OR A GROWTH – PROMOTING OPPORTUNITY ONE THAT WILL EITHER FURTHER UNDERMINE THE INTEGRITY OF AN ALREADY – COMPROMISED SYSTEM OR FURTHER STRENGTHEN AN ALREADY – RESILIENT SYSTEM
  • 9. WHAT CONSTITUTES STRESS? ENVIRONMENTAL STRESSORS ENCOMPASS THE LIVING AND THE NONLIVING THE EXTERNAL AND THE INTERNAL THE PSYCHOLOGICAL, THE PHYSIOLOGICAL, AND THE ENERGETIC MORE SPECIFICALLY, STRESSORS TAKE THE FORM OF BOTH TOXICITIES (TOO MUCH BAD) AND DEFICIENCIES (NOT ENOUGH GOOD) TOO MANY ANXIETY – PROVOKING INTERPRETATIONS, NOT ENOUGH ANXIETY – ASSUAGING EMPATHIC INTERVENTIONS TOO MUCH OXIDATIVE STRESS FROM ELECTRON – SCAVENGING FREE RADICALS, NOT ENOUGH INHIBITION OF OXIDATION BY ANTIOXIDANTS TOO MANY ANTIBIOTICS ALTERING THE BALANCE OF HEALTHY FLORA IN THE GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT, NOT ENOUGH PROBIOTICS AND PREBIOTICS TO RESTORE THAT BALANCE TOO MUCH EXPOSURE TO DISSONANT VIBRATIONAL FREQUENCIES, NOT ENOUGH EXPOSURE TO RESONANT ONES
  • 10. ENVIRONMENTAL CHALLENGE TOXICITIES – PRESENCE OF BAD – TOO MUCH BAD DEFICIENCIES – ABSENCE OF GOOD – NOT ENOUGH GOOD ENVIRONMENTAL STRESSORS IN THE FORM OF BOTH TOXICITIES AND DEFICIENCIES WILL PROVE ULTIMATELY TO BE EITHER OVERWHELMING OR TRANSFORMATIVE, DEPENDING UPON THE SYSTEM’S RESILIENCE, THAT IS, THE SYSTEM’S ABILITY, AFTER THE INITIAL DISRUPTION, TO PROCESS AND INTEGRATE THE IMPACT OF THE PERTURBATION THE VILLAIN IN THE PIECE – TRAUMATIC STRESS STRESSORS THAT OVERWHELM THE HEROINE IN THE PIECE – OPTIMAL STRESS STRESSORS THAT PROVIDE THE IMPETUS FOR TRANSFORMATION
  • 11. TRAUMATIC STRESS STRESS THAT THE SYSTEM CANNOT PROCESS AND MUST THEREFORE DEFEND AGAINST RESULTING IN TIGHTENING OF MYOFASCIA, RUPTURE OF MYOFIBRILS, CALCIFICATIONS, MUSCLE CONTRACTURES, AND FORMATION OF TRIGGER POINTS OPTIMAL STRESS STRESS THAT THE SYSTEM CAN PROCESS AND ULTIMATELY ADAPT TO EVERY – OTHER – DAY STRENGTH TRAINING, MODERATE AEROBIC EXERCISE, VACCINATIONS, HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES, “PIN FIRING” OF PARTIALLY HEALED TENDONS, DEFIBRILLATION TO RESTORE NORMAL SINUS RHYTHM, ELECTROSHOCK THERAPY, MILD SLEEP DEPRIVATION FOR TEMPORARY RELIEF OF DEPRESSION, ANXIETY – PROVOKING INTERPRETATIONS TO CHALLENGE OLD DEFENSIVE PATTERNS, FRAXEL LASER TREATMENTS TO STIMULATE REGENERATION OF FACIAL COLLAGEN, DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE TO PROMOTE RELEASE AND FLOW, DESENSITIZATION THERAPIES, DEBRIDEMENT OF WOUNDS TO ACCELERATE HEALING, PICKING OF PARTIALLY HEALED SCABS TO PROMOTE HEALING, AND TRIMMING THE FRAYED ENDS OF HAIR TO STIMULATE GROWTH OF THE FOLLICLES
  • 12. EVOLUTIONARY PROCESSES THE DEVELOPMENTAL PROCESS THE THERAPEUTIC PROCESS / THE WORKING – THROUGH PROCESS THE HEALING PROCESS THE LEARNING PROCESS THE THOUGHT PROCESS THE CREATIVE PROCESS ALL SUCH TRANSFORMATIVE PROCESSES INVOLVE GRADUAL EVOLUTION OF A SELF – ORGANIZING SYSTEM (BE IT THE YOUNG CHILD, THE PATIENT, THE STUDENT, THE THINKER, OR THE ARTIST) TO EVER MORE COMPLEX AND NOVEL STRUCTURAL CONFIGURATIONS THE EVOLUTION OF THESE COMPLEX ADAPTIVE SYSTEMS INVOLVES WORKING THROUGH RECURSIVE CYCLES OF DISORGANIZATION AND REORGANIZATION, DISRUPTION AND REPAIR, CHALLENGE AND RECOVERY, EACH ITERATION ACCOMPANIED BY ADAPTIVE RECONSTITUTION AT EVER NEWER BALANCE POINTS AND EVER HIGHER LEVELS OF ORDER, COMPLEXITY, INTEGRATION, AND COHERENCE
  • 13. THE THERAPEUTIC PROCESS A BELATED PROCESSING OF UNMASTERED TRAUMAS THE THERAPIST, EVER ATTUNED TO THE PATIENT’S CAPACITY TO TOLERATE STRESS, WILL ALTERNATELY CHALLENGE (WHEN POSSIBLE) AND SUPPORT (WHEN NECESSARY) CHALLENGE WITH ANXIETY – PROVOKING INTERPRETATIONS THAT DIRECT THE PATIENT’S ATTENTION TO WHERE SHE ISN’T SUPPORT WITH ANXIETY – ASSUAGING EMPATHIC INTERVENTIONS THAT RESONATE WITH WHERE THE PATIENT IS INTERVENTIONS TO WHICH THE PATIENT WILL RESPOND BY EITHER BECOMING DEFENSIVE (DISORGANIZING) OR ADAPTING (RECONSTITUTING AT A HIGHER LEVEL OF PSYCHOLOGICAL SOPHISTICATION AND EMOTIONAL MATURITY) AGAIN, WHAT PROMPTS TRANSFORMATION AND GROWTH? THE EXPERIENCE OF GRATIFICATION? OR THE EXPERIENCE OF WORKING THROUGH (OPTIMAL) FRUSTRATION?
  • 14. THE THERAPEUTIC PROCESS THE THERAPIST, EVER ATTUNED TO THE PATIENT’S CAPACITY TO TOLERATE STRESS, WILL ALTERNATELY CHALLENGE (WHEN POSSIBLE) AND SUPPORT (WHEN NECESSARY) CHALLENGE WITH ANXIETY – PROVOKING INTERPRETATIONS IN AN EFFORT TO AWAKEN / TRIGGER SELF – REGULATORY, COMPENSATORY, HOMEOSTATIC MECHANISMS THAT WILL PROMPT THE BODY ADAPTIVELY TO RECONSTITUTE AT A HIGHER LEVEL OF PSYCHOLOGICAL SOPHISTICATION AND EMOTIONAL MATURITY SUPPORT WITH ANXIETY – ASSUAGING EMPATHIC INTERVENTIONS IN AN EFFORT TO FACILITATE THAT PROCESS AGAIN, WHAT PROMPTS TRANSFORMATION AND GROWTH? IS IT SIMPLY REGULATORY INPUT FROM THE OUTSIDE (SUPPORT) THAT PROMOTES GROWTH AND HEALING? OR IS IT THE WORKING THROUGH OF DISRUPTIONS OCCASIONED BY THAT REGULATORY INPUT (CHALLENGE) THAT PROMOTES GROWTH AND HEALING?
  • 15. MODES OF PSYCHOTHERAPEUTIC ACTION THE INTERPRETIVE PERSPECTIVE IS A STORY ABOUT TRANSFORMING THE NEED TO RESIST KNOWLEDGE OF THE SELF INTO THE CAPACITY FOR SELF – AWARENESS AND INSIGHT (AS RESISTANCE IS WORKED THROUGH AND OVERCOME) THE CORRECTIVE – PROVISION PERSPECTIVE IS A STORY ABOUT TRANSFORMING THE NEED TO AVOID THE PAIN OF DISAPPOINTMENT IN OTHERS INTO THE CAPACITY TO ACCEPT THEM AS THEY ARE AND TO FORGIVE THEM (AS RELENTLESS HOPE AND THE REFUSAL TO GRIEVE ARE WORKED THROUGH AND RELINQUISHED) THE RELATIONAL PERSPECTIVE IS A STORY ABOUT TRANSFORMING THE UNCONSCIOUS NEED TO PLAY OUT IN RELATIONSHIP UNRESOLVED CHILDHOOD DRAMAS INTO THE CAPACITY TO TAKE OWNERSHIP OF THESE UNWITTING RE – ENACTMENTS (AS THE ENTANGLEMENTS THAT WILL INEVITABLY EMERGE AT THE INTIMATE EDGE OF AUTHENTIC ENGAGEMENT ARE MUTUALLY NEGOTIATED AND RESOLVED) MENTAL HEALTH – WISDOM, ACCEPTANCE, ACCOUNTABILITY
  • 16. EMDR BY DAY / REM BY NIGHT THE HALLMARK OF POSTTRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER IS DISSOCIATION AND COMPARTMENTALIZATION OF THE TRAUMA IN THE BODY’S TISSUES, BECAUSE IT IS SIMPLY TOO TOXIC TO BE PROCESSED AND INTEGRATED “THE BODY REMEMBERS EVEN WHEN THE PATIENT DOES NOT.” Bessel van der Kolk, M.D. EYE MOVEMENT DESENSITIZATION AND REPROCESSING (EMDR) RESOLVES TRAUMA BECAUSE STIMULATING ALTERNATELY AND RHYTHMICALLY THE TWO SIDES OF THE BRAIN IS THOUGHT TO FACILITATE THE FLOW OF INFORMATION AND ENERGY WITHIN THE BODY, THEREBY ENABLING BELATED PROCESSING AND INTEGRATION OF UNMASTERED TRAUMAS STORED IN THE RIGHT BRAIN SO TOO RAPID EYE MOVEMENT (REM) SLEEP IS THOUGHT TO DILUTE INCREMENTALLY THE TOXICITY OF UNPROCESSED MEMORIES AND TO FACILITATE MASTERY OF UNRESOLVED DAY RESIDUE BY BRINGING TO BEAR THE RATIONALITY OF THE LINEAR LEFT BRAIN (A SERIAL PROCESSOR) ON THE MORE IRRATIONAL NONLINEAR RIGHT BRAIN (A PARALLEL PROCESSOR), WHERE THE UNMASTERED MATERIAL RESIDES
  • 17. THE CAPACITY TO COPE WITH STRESS THE CAPACITY TO TOLERATE STRESS IS ULTIMATELY A STORY ABOUT THE SYSTEM’S ABILITY TO PROCESS AND INTEGRATE THE IMPACT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PERTURBATION, WHICH WILL BE A REFLECTION OF THE UNDERLYING ORDEREDNESS AND FLUIDITY OF THE LIVING SYSTEM AND THE EASE WITH WHICH REGULATORY INFORMATION AND VIBRATORY ENERGY CAN BE PROPAGATED THROUGHOUT ITS EXPANSE LACK OF ORDER AND DISRUPTED EASE OF FLOW MANIFESTING AS “DIS – ORDER” AND “DIS – EASE”
  • 18. CONTINUOUS ADJUSTMENT TO INSTABILITY IMPLICIT IN THIS CONCEPTUALIZATION OF SELF – REGULATION BY A SYSTEM THAT IS ORDERED AND FLUID IS THE COMPELLING IDEA THAT A LIVING SYSTEM WILL BE ABLE TO PRESERVE ITS STABILITY ONLY BY WAY OF CONTINUOUS ADJUSTMENT TO INSTABILITY “THE ABILITY TO SURVIVE CHANGE BY CHANGING” DONELLA MEADOWS (1997) – A SYSTEMS ANALYST PARADOXICAL DISCOVERY THE GREATER THE HEART RATE VARIABILITY, THE MORE LIKELY THE FETUS WOULD BE TO SURVIVE Hon EH. Electronic evaluation of the fetal heart rate patterns preceding fetal death: further observation. Amn J of Ob Gyn 1965;87:814-826 HEALTH SPEAKS TO THE CAPACITY CONTINUOUSLY TO ADJUST TO ONGOING ENVIRONMENTAL PERTURBATION AND ADAPTIVELY TO REORGANIZE AT EVER NEWER HOMEOSTATIC SET POINTS
  • 19. HOMEOSTASIS WALTER B. CANNON – The Wisdom of the Body (1932) HANS SELYE – The Stress of Life (1956) THE BODY’S INNATE ABILITY TO PRESERVE, BY WAY OF A COMPLEX SERIES OF MICROADJUSTMENTS, THE CONSTANCY OF ITS INTERNAL ENVIRONMENT IN THE FACE OF ONGOING CHALLENGE ENVIRONMENTAL CHALLENGE PROMPTS THE BODY TO EMPLOY ALL MANNER OF COMPENSATORY, ADAPTIVE, AND REGULATORY MECHANISMS IN AN EFFORT TO RESTORE ITS HOMEOSTATIC BALANCE ADAPTATION SPEAKS TO THE BODY’S CAPACITY CONTINUOUSLY TO ADJUST TO THE IMPACT OF ENVIRONMENTAL THREAT BY RECONSTITUTING AGAIN AND AGAIN AT EVER NEWER HOMEOSTATIC SET POINTS AND EVER HIGHER LEVELS OF ORDER, COMPLEXITY, AND INTEGRATION HOMEOSTASIS IS ULTIMATELY A STORY ABOUT THE WISDOM OF THE BODY – THE WISDOM OF THE MATRIX
  • 20. GROUND REGULATION SYSTEM OR LIVING MATRIX ALBERT SZENT – GYORGYI, HARTMUT HEINE, ALBERT PISCHINGER, ROBERT BECKER, FRITZ – ALBERT POPP, AND JAMES OSCHMAN – RESEARCH SCIENTISTS DEDICATED TO UNDERSTANDING, ON BOTH MOLECULAR AND SUBMOLECULAR LEVELS, THE COMPLEX WORKINGS OF THE HIGH – SPEED, BODY – WIDE INFORMATION AND ENERGY DISSEMINATION SYSTEM RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MAINTENANCE OF HOMEOSTASIS VARIOUSLY DESCRIBED AS THE GROUND REGULATION SYSTEM, THE EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX, THE CONNECTIVE TISSUE MATRIX, AND THE LIVING MATRIX A VAST INTERCONNECTED NETWORK OF MOLECULES WITHIN WHICH ALL THE BODY’S CELLS, TISSUES, AND ORGANS ARE EMBEDDED AND THROUGH WHICH THE FLOW OF LIFE TAKES PLACE THE LIVING MATRIX CONSTITUTES A BODY CONSCIOUSNESS WORKING IN TANDEM WITH THE BRAIN CONSCIOUSNESS OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM
  • 21. GROUND REGULATION SYSTEM HOMEOSTASIS WAS THOUGHT BY CANNON AND SELYE TO INVOLVE REGULATORY ORGAN SYSTEMS (ESPECIALLY THE NERVOUS AND ENDOCRINE SYSTEMS) BUT ALFRED PISCHINGER WAS ABLE TO DEMONSTRATE THAT NERVE ENDINGS AND CAPILLARY BEDS NEVER ACTUALLY HAVE DIRECT CONTACT WITH FUNCTIONING CELLS, THAT THE NERVOUS AND ENDOCRINE SYSTEMS COMMUNICATE WITH THESE CELLS ONLY BY WAY OF THE GROUND REGULATION SYSTEM Pischinger A. Matrix and Matrix Regulation: Basis for a Holistic Theory in Medicine, 1991 FROM THIS IT FOLLOWS THAT THE MORE FLUID THE FLOW OF INFORMATION AND ENERGY THROUGH THE LIVING MATRIX, THE MORE EFFECTIVE THE RELAYING OF CHEMICAL MESSAGES BETWEEN THE REGULATORY ORGAN SYSTEMS AND THE PARENCHYMAL CELLS EVEN THOUGH LOWER ANIMALS LACK NERVOUS SYSTEMS, THEY HAVE GROUND REGULATION SYSTEMS AND ARE ABLE BOTH TO HEAL THEMSELVES AND TO GROW HOMEOSTASIS IS ULTIMATELY A STORY ABOUT THE GROUND REGULATION SYSTEM / THE LIVING MATRIX

  • 23. THE MATRIX THE MATRIX IS A HIGHLY ORDERED CONTINUUM A REGULATORY MEDIUM THAT PLACES A PREMIUM ON DYNAMIC EQUILIBRIUM ANY DISRUPTION BY PERTURBATION PROMPTS ADAPTATION BY COMPENSATION SUCH THAT HEALTH CAN BE OPTIMUM AND “DIS – ORDER” MINIMUM Martha Stark (2007)
  • 24.

ENHANCEMENT OF KNOWLEDGE THE INTERPRETIVE PERSPECTIVE OF CLASSICAL PSYCHOANALYSIS A DRIVE – DEFENSE MODEL THAT FOCUSES ON UNMODULATED DRIVES AND SELF – PROTECTIVE DEFENSES OFFERS THE NEUROTICALLY CONFLICTED PATIENT AN OPPORTUNITY TO GAIN GREATER SELF – AWARENESS AND INSIGHT INTO HER INNER WORKINGS
  • 73. PROVISION OF EXPERIENCE A MORE CONTEMPORARY PERSPECTIVE FOCUSES ON PSYCHOLOGICAL DEFICIENCIES DERIVING FROM EARLY – ON DEPRIVATION OR NEGLECT AND MANIFESTING AS AN UNRELENTING NEED FOR A GOOD PARENT THIS DEFICIENCY – COMPENSATION PERSPECTIVE OFFERS THE PATIENT AN OPPORTUNITY BOTH TO GRIEVE PARENTAL FAILURES AND TO EXPERIENCE SYMBOLIC RESTITUTION FOR THOSE FAILURES IN THE CONTEXT OF THE HERE – AND – NOW RELATIONSHIP WITH THE THERAPIST LEADS TO GREATER ACCEPTANCE
  • 74. ENGAGEMENT IN RELATIONSHIP A MORE CONTEMPORARY PERSPECTIVE FOCUSES ON PSYCHOLOGICAL TOXICITIES DERIVING FROM EARLY – ON TRAUMA OR ABUSE AND MANIFESTING AS DYSFUNCTIONAL RELATIONSHIP PATTERNS THERAPY OFFERS THE PATIENT A STAGE UPON WHICH TO PLAY OUT HER UNRESOLVED CHILDHOOD DRAMAS BUT ULTIMATELY AN OPPORTUNITY TO ENCOUNTER A DIFFERENT OUTCOME THIS TIME BECAUSE THE THERAPIST WILL BE ABLE TO FACILITATE RESOLUTION BY BRINGING TO BEAR HER OWN MORE EVOLVED CAPACITY TO PROCESS AND INTEGRATE LEADS TO GREATER ACCOUNTABILITY FOR UNCONSCIOUS RE – ENACTMENTS AT THE INTIMATE EDGE
  • 75. GROWTH PROCESS TRANSFORMATION OF NEED INTO CAPACITY WHERE ID WAS, THERE SHALL EGO BE WHERE ID DRIVE WAS, THERE SHALL EGO STRUCTURE BE WHERE ID NEEDS WERE, THERE SHALL EGO CAPACITY BE WHERE NEED WAS, THERE SHALL CAPACITY BE PSYCHIC STRUCTURES PERFORM REGULATORY FUNCTIONS THAT ENABLE CAPACITY e.g., TRANSFORMATION OF THE NEED FOR PERFECTION INTO THE CAPACITY TO TOLERATE IMPERFECTION e.g., TRANSFORMATION OF THE NEED FOR IMMEDIATE GRATIFICATION INTO THE CAPACITY TO TOLERATE DELAY
  • 76. MATURITY DEFENSIVE NEED INTO ADAPTIVE CAPACITY Model 1 – RESISTANCE INTO INSIGHT Model 2 – RELENTLESSNESS INTO ACCEPTANCE Model 3 – ENACTMENT INTO ACCOUNTABILITY ADAPTIVE CAPACITY TO KNOW AND ACCEPT THE SELF TO KNOW AND ACCEPT THE OBJECT TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ONESELF
  • 77. COMPLEXITY THEORY ORDER EMERGES FROM CHAOS CHAOS – SEEMING RANDOMNESS but UNDERLYING ORDER THE EVOLUTION OF A SELF – ORGANIZING SYSTEM INVOLVES WORKING THROUGH RECURSIVE CYCLES OF DISRUPTION AND REPAIR EACH ITERATION ACCOMPANIED BY ADAPTIVE RECONSTITUTION AT EVER HIGHER LEVELS AS THE NEED TO DEFEND BECOMES TRANSFORMED INTO THE CAPACITY TO ADAPT
  • 78. FROM CHAOS TO COHERENCE EMERGENCE – IN RESPONSE TO REGULATORY INPUT FROM THE OUTSIDE, THE ARISING OF NOVEL AND COHERENT STRUCTURES, PATTERNS, AND PROPERTIES DURING THE PROCESS OF SELF – ORGANIZATION IN A COMPLEX SYSTEM LIVING SYSTEMS EXIST IN THE SPACETIME BETWEEN ORDER AND CHAOS, BALANCED PRECARIOUSLY AT THE EDGE OF CHAOS IN THE WORDS OF PER BAK, “PERPETUALLY OUT – OF – BALANCE, BUT ORGANIZED IN A POISED STATE” INCLUDE HERE THE RICHARD DAY AND GUY LETTS MATERIAL
  • 79. WORKING – THROUGH PROCESS RECURSIVE CYCLES OF DISRUPTION AND REPAIR THE THERAPIST, EVER ATTUNED TO THE PATIENT’S CAPACITY TO TOLERATE STRESS, WILL ALTERNATELY CHALLENGE (WHEN POSSIBLE) AND SUPPORT (WHEN NECESSARY) RECURSIVE CYCLES OF COLLAPSE AND ADAPTIVE RECONSTITUTION AT EVER HIGHER LEVELS OF ORDER, COMPLEXITY, AND MATURITY THERAPEUTIC ACTION UNCONSCIOUS CONFLICTEDNESS AND DEFENSIVENESS INTO INSIGHT RELENTLESS HOPE AND REFUSAL TO GRIEVE INTO ACCEPTANCE UNWITTING COMPULSIVE RE – ENACTMENTS INTO ACCOUNTABILITY WISDOM, ACCEPTANCE, ACCOUNTABILITY
  • 80. FACILITATION OF FLOW OF INFORMATION AND ENERGY A MORE HOLISTIC APROACH TO HEALING MY FOURTH MODEL – ONE THAT FOCUSES ON THE INTERDEPENDENCE OF BODY AND MIND HERE THE BODY CONCEPTUALIZED AS A VAST INTERCONNECTED NETWORK OF MOLECULES WITHIN WHICH ALL THE BODY’S CELLS, TISSUES, AND ORGANS ARE EMBEDDED A LIVING MATRIX THROUGH WHICH THE FLOW OF LIFE TAKES PLACE THE FLOW OF VITAL ENERGY OR CHI STORED ENERGETICALLY WITHIN EVERY MOLECULE OF THIS EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX IS THE HISTORY OF ALL THE BODY’S INTERACTIONS WITH THE ENVIRONMENT

New York, NY: McGraw-Hill Book Co., 1956 HOW CRUCIAL IT IS THAT THE BODY BE ABLE TO MAINTAIN THE CONSTANCY OF ITS INTERNAL ENVIRONMENT HOW ADAPTIVE IT IS THAT THE BODY WHEN CHALLENGED BE ABLE – BY VIRTUE OF ITS INNATE WISDOM – TO MOBILIZE ITS OWN RESOURCES IN THE INTERESTS OF RESTORING ITS HOMEOSTASIS THE BODY EMPLOYS ALL MANNER OF REGULATORY, COMPENSATORY, AND DEFENSIVE MECHANISMS TO RESTORE UNDERLYING ORDEREDNESS, COHERENCE, AND BALANCE
  • 82. THERAPEUTIC INTERVENTIONS FOR DIS – ORDER AND DIS – EASE DETOXIFY (AS HAPPENS WITH CHELATION) TO LIGHTEN THE TOTAL BODY LOAD SUPPLEMENT (AS HAPPENS WITH OXYGEN THERAPY) TO REPLENISH THE TOTAL BODY RESERVES TO RESTORE THE EASE OF FLOW OF REGULATORY INFORMATION AND VIBRATORY ENERGY TO BOLSTER THE SYSTEM’S CAPACITY TO PROCESS AND INTEGRATE THE IMPACT OF ENVIRONMENTAL IMPINGEMENT AND ADAPTIVELY TO RECONSTITUTE AT EVER HIGHER LEVELS INTERVENTIONS MUST DETOXIFY AND SUPPLEMENT IN ORDER TO REINFORCE THE SYSTEM’S CAPACITY TO TOLERATE THE STRESS(ORS) OF LIFE
  • 83. STRESS PROMPTS BOTH DISRUPTION AND REPAIR THE GRAINS OF SAND ARE THE OCCASION FOR BOTH PARTIAL COLLAPSE AND ADAPTIVE RE – EQUILIBRATION AT A NEW SET POINT NOT ONLY WILL ENVIRONMENTAL STRESSORS PRECIPITATE BREAKDOWN OF THE SYSTEM BUT THEY WILL BE THE MEANS BY WHICH THE SYSTEM WILL BE ABLE TO BUILD ITSELF BACK UP THIS TIME AT A HIGHER LEVEL
