Consolidity-based Theory of Change
The consolidity-based theory of change
literature together with the current built-as-usual systems
practices of most disciplines are giving their strongest emphasis on
the immediate behavior (including the dynamics) of natural and
man-made systems; thus overlooking the systems unavoidable changes
during their course of life. In the majority of real life
situations, however, each system’s change pathway follows a
zigzagging pattern with many downs and ups, but the prevailing
tendency will always be towards a definite final (or end) state(s).
Due to such unconsolidity of the natural and man-made systems, the
parameters of the systems tend to change very slightly far from
their original set-points towards more improved consolidity, leading
to degrading their corresponding levels of stability and
controllability. The mechanism of the conceptual pathway development
is based on event-driven system framework, where the periods of
inactivity can be passed over by jumping from one changed
environment or event state to the next changed environment or event
state and so on.
System changes could
take place in incremental way and are not noticeable except after
appreciable accumulations of such changes. Changes of systems
parameters could possibly be infinitesimal; for instance for the
masses it could be of the order of magnitude of single molecular or
even atomic mass. Thus, any tiny change of system parameter due to
external effect or event cannot pass without being accounted for
within the corresponding parameters changes. With the continual
changes of physical parameters, the systems start approaching less
stable and controllable states but at the same time much improved
Role of time factor in the consolidity-based theory of change
It must be underlined
that the time factor of the pathway progress is implicitly embedded
within the term of affected environments or events. It is thus
logical to comprehend that system parameters changes are basically
attributed in the first place to the sole affecting environment
rather than just elapsing time in unduly way; a plain example is the
incidents of having no changes (or null events) during the process
of freezing and reviving of cells, tissues, and organs, while the
time is overly running for certain or open periods.
In fact, in many life sciences and specifically in the field of
molecular dynamics, real life physical systems behave basically on
event-driven rather than time-driven frameworks. Nevertheless, in
situations where events have certain time durations, it is apparent
their overall effects can be transformed to the equivalents of
events strength. A manifest example is that the expected life span
of civil buildings and structures in identified tectonically active
zones are mostly determined by the strength and sequence form of
affected earthquakes events rather than their normal standard
designed life durations.
Needless to say, most
of the technologies and computer-based schemes we have already
developed and rely on in our daily life are also event-driven.
Typical examples are communication networks, manufacturing
facilities, the execution of computer software systems, ..etc.
The time, on the other hand, is governing the system state equation
and consequently the system response. It is also crucial in
determining the order of the sequence of the occurrence of events.
This is beside the intrinsic role of time in the synchronized
coordination of various affecting events of the whole living
universe (usually referred to as the timeline) At each step of
affected event, once the system parameters are changed, the system
will not behave similarly once more from the consolidity point of
view. This gives rise to the importance of addressing jointly both
time and event states in representing any worked out system
The joint time-driven (basic system) and event-driven (upper system)
The events and
activities operations can be recognized based on the above
investigation in the form of high level influencing layer(s) (to be
denoted as the “event-driven or upper system layer(s)”) acting over
the ordinary time-driven state systems state equations to be
designated as the “time-driven or basic system layer(s)”. Such basic
system layer(s) provide essentially the form and nature of the
system together with its governing state equations. In general, the
two essential pillars of controllability and stability operate at
the basic system level. On, the other hand, the third pillar of
consolidity is prevailing at the event-driven or upper system level
and influencing system parameters pathway changes.. The event
clocklike register progress is represented as counter-clockwise to
be conceptually congruent with the normal rotational direction of
the majority of all parts (smallest to biggest) of our universe.
System changes in real
life may be logically conceived to be internally stacked in the form
of a new sub-layer (or minute sub-layer or sub-stratum) arranged in
some form in relations to the other preceding existing layer(s).
Such new sub-layers (or sub-strata) represent the incremental
physical changes or alternations imposed on the original system
basic layer(s) due to the induced effects.
Different classes of
such stack-based arrangements at the basic system layer(s) are based
on the stacking of sub-layers directions and are described as
Description of stack-based arrangement
relation to preceding existing layer(s))
top, or upward of original basic system (or layers).
bottom or downward of original basic system (or layers).
double or all sided of the external areas of the original
basic system (or layers).
outer or coating of certain original system core or
inner or lining of a certain hollow or empty space inside
the basic original system (or layers).
in-between or scattered in the internal areas of the
original basic system (or layers).
each stack-based class, there are different categories describing
the growing, shrinking or growing/shrinking the form of the sub-layer(s)
a new consolidity-based theory of change
The basic principle in all respects is that no event affecting any
system can ever pass without being accounted by corresponding
consolidity-based change of such system’s parameters. In general,
real life systems are normally differing in the rate of their
progress based on their nature of the dynamics and type of varying
environments affecting their operation, through formulating their
corresponding event-driven change function.
From the consolidity-based theory of change, it can be visualized
that all systems should have intelligent self-implements (some sort
of consolidated-based scaled or ciphered data loggers) that store
with full accuracy their affecting varying environment through
corresponding changes of related system parts or parameters. Stated
otherwise, it can be conceived that each system has an astonishing
autonomous self-recording mechanism of their actions through
incrementally performing with very fine precision its parameters
changes with the occurrences of varying events within the framework
of its consolidity.
It can also be envisioned that such autonomous self-recording
feature is physically implemented in a way that could allow possible
redundancy, such that the effect of the varying event could be
recorded in a distributed manner at various spatial points after
being scaled with the appropriate consolidity at each point.
Therefore, the evidence of the occurrence of any event will be
almost impossible to be concealed (or misplaced) as it is
redundantly self-recorded by change of parameters at several spots
of the system.
reversibility of the consolidity-based theory of change
The tracking of system changes of a certain system (or its
components) could permit, under some special conditions by the
conversing of the general consolidity-based theory of change,
retrieving back the form of the history of varying environments,
applied only provided the existence of such reversibility conditions
of the change functions.
At this point, it must be elaborated once more that the notions of
systems autonomous self-recording, (infinite) stacking and
backtracking of events history through corresponding systems changes
are meaningless to be redefined for current time-driven systems
formulations practices. This is due to the fact that systems changes
are attributed in the first place to events happening rather than
elapsing the time.
For the sake of intelligent operation of systems under environmental
or events changes it may be suggested that each system should
arrange its pathway parameters changes and the corresponding
on-the-spot consolidity values in an accessible and understandable
manner. Such aspect is closely related to the self understanding of
the mechanism of the (infinite) stacking of such parameters changes
within the system. The form of such arranged (infinite) stacking of
consolidity-based succession parameters changes is an aspect of high
significance in the majority of disciplines and is an open research
subject for future scientific explorations.
supportive examples of the global theory of change
Some real life selected supportive examples illustrating the
autonomous self-recording of events through corresponding systems
change of parameters are given hereafter.
example in biology, autonomous self recording of events of living
being can be observed during colonizing experiments, revealing that
new colonized species are influenced by the recorded genetic
features such as size and aging of the species parents; an example
is the Dolly sheep and its similar experiments. Moreover, genome
experiments have revealed the extraordinary results that each pair
of species chromosomes provides certain past recorded information on
the species including their ancestors from the dawn of life.
Ecology is one of the salient disciplines where the even-driven
theory of change can be effectively applied. Examples of events are
the solar radiation, rain storms, winds, gravitational effects,
fierce birds attacks, wild life animals feedings, human settlement
activities, earthquakes and tectonic movements..etc. On the other
hand, nature stores these events into corresponding
consolidity-based scaled parameters changes of the ecology of
forests, aquaculture, living beings, remnants of plants and animals,
weathering, erosions, sedimentation of different types, ..etc.
For life sciences, it has long been identified that the thickness of
each yearly recognizable ring of the tree trunk is directly related
to the yearly affected environmental events. For each year’s ring
growth, the higher spring time produces wider light parts of the
ring; while a higher drought of late summer/fall produces a much
narrower dark parts of the ring.
In hydrology, the principle that natural rivers such as the
Mississippi and Nile Rivers are behaving as if they possess long
memories has been long recognized by water resources analysts (well
known in the literature by the Joseph or Hurst Phenomenon). Such
Hurst Phenomenon is basically another example of event-driven rather
than time-driven framework of natural systems.
In medicine, it can also be conceived the notion of autonomous
self-recording of events of a human through consolidity-based change
of his distributed parameters imaginatively covering his head,
hands, legs, skin, ..etc. This lucid example is also applicable to
all existing living beings since the dawn of life.
Another wealthy area is materials engineering where the self
recording of events can be easily observed is materials engineering.
A direct example is fatigue phenomenon appearing in all solid
materials due to the effect of small cyclic loading causing slow
propagation of grains microscopic cracks. A similar analysis applies
as well to the phenomenon of creep (deformation) progress taking
place also slowly in solid materials. In general, the fatigue and
creep effects basically operate under an event-driven rather than
The original creation
of our master universe has been arranged through same stack-based
paradigm. This is clearly elucidated in sacred scriptures through
inscribing the subsequent stack-based founding of the time, heavens,
earth, angels, living things, the man, ..etc as a manifestations of
God’s work. Moreover, the notion of stacking within religion has
also been clearly demonstrated in all sacred books (The Holy Old
Testament, the Bible and the Holy Qur’an), where prophets and
messengers from Adam and onward have been building (and updating)
the revelations one over the other obeying the stacked class.
It is scripted in the sacred books that each thing in the universe
has been given specified form and nature (basic level), and its
pathway is guided all through by Almighty God (higher level) , as
revealed in the Holy Qur’an:
“Moses Said: Our Lord is He who gave each thing its form
and nature, then guided it aright”
The concepts of the existence of complete divine of received records
of self events happening of the Man, and the principle of pathway
change to an inevitable end (perish) for all living beings have been
clearly revealed in the sacred books as a manifestation of God’s
power, as given hereafter.
It was also inscribed that on The Day of Judgment there will be
complete retrieval of all the divine recordings of self events
happenings of the Man from its different parts of body, namely the
physical (tongues, hands, and legs) and the sensing (ears, eyes and
skins) parts. This was clearly stated in two complementary verses as
“On the Day when their tongues,
their hands, and their legs will bear witness against them as to
what they used to do.”
of Al-Nour V
“Till, when they reach it (Hell-fire), their ears
(hearings) and their eyes, and their skins will testify against them
as to what they used to do.”
of Fussilat V
It was also revealed that the self-recordings of the Man are
registered in one divine book created as an exact copy (received
first by first) of all the happenings of his self-events, stated as:
“This, Our Record speaks about you with truth. Verily,
We were having transcribed
whatever you used to do.”
of Al Gathia V
The smallest measuring
unit of the divine recordings of self events happening of the Man is
also revealed in the Holy Qur’an for very fair judgment as the
weight of one atom (equivalent to
1.6 x 10-24
“So whosoever does good equal to the weight of an atom shall see it.
And whosoever does evil equal to the weight of an atom shall see
of Al-Zalzalah V
The principle of
having an inevitable end (departing away) of all changes states of
every real life system was inscribed in the Holy Qur’an, clearly as:
“Whatsoever on it
will perish. And the face of your God full of Majesty and Honor will
of El Rahman V
qualitative-based disciplines such as sociology and humanities, the
notion of stacking system changes when subjected to varying
phenomena can still be analogously applicable but in expressive or
descriptive forms. A typical descriptive stacking semantics can
naturally be formed through building sequential linguistic segments
(or sub-segments) each is separated from its preceding one by some
sort of linguistic identifier(s) (an example is the interactive
multi-layered segments of poetry). Stacking also directly applies to
human self-accumulations of knowledge and learning.
In fact, we can find
everywhere in various disciplines and sciences the systems following
stacked-based stored change behavior when subjected to events or
varying environments “on and above” their normal situations.
It is thus clear from the above presented developments/formulations
and the analysis of their supportive applications of the internal
stacked-based change arrangements the following important results
life systems operations follow the same principle of the
two-level multi-layer configurations which typically
replicate that of the Universe global configuration (of the
heavens and earth layers one above another) but with much
reduced scale and complexity.
configuration is organized by some sort of an “event
clocklike register”, which
operates alongside of the ordinary “time clock” starting
with the original (or initial) system state, stepping
forward only with the occurrence of any coming event
affecting the system and stopping at the final (or end)
by all means is not left unattended, but in fact is
amazingly self-monitored since its creation through very
high precision intelligent autonomous stack-based internal
recordings with the given classifications and
categorizations of self-events (activities) inside each
oneself (or itself).
existence of some reversibility conditions, it is amenable
through reversing direction of the “event clocklike
register” to perform backtracking procedure of the history
of affected events through sequentially disclosing the
overlaid stacking arrangements systems parameters changes
corresponding to such effects.
First of all, as the
development of the systems stacked-based configuration and procedure
is given in the most general forms, their implementations for each
stack classifications and categorization type in various disciplines
will be after their feedings with appropriate observations and
measurements straightforward exercises.
In this regards, it is recommended that many of the related
approaches have now to be mathematically reformulated once more and
be applied for the pathway change analysis of the everywhere real
life systems in various sciences and disciplines following the
provided generic stack-based representations. This gives rise to the
necessity of introducing new forms of open stacked matrices of the
multidirectional growing structures matching the different stack
classes and categories of the system change sub-layers. The
requisite growing stacked matrices should possess ever growing
property with stepping of events, should expand in same directions
of growths of system sub-layers and should capture changes in
pursuance of class and category of system (infinite) stacks.
Second, as real life systems are internally recording since creation
and with very high precision their own events within their
parameters changes, they should also simultaneously continue storing
their corresponding consolidity-based inverse scaling (or
deciphers); otherwise they will not be able to transform accurately
the meaning of such internal parameters changes (infinite stacks).
The question of “How are systems intelligently preserving or somehow
having access to such consolidity-based inverse scaling or
deciphers? “ is a very important topic highly recommended for future
research. As these decipher or keys represent the form of entrance
guide to the system stored information, it can be logically
conceived that they should play part of role of the information
header(s) which are the units of information that precede and define
following data objects. Further research work, therefore, is needed
to attain guided control and manipulation of such stored inverse
scales (or deciphers); thus bringing far reaching results for the
future of the humanity.
In fact, the principle of the existence of divine ciphering or
hidden keys associated by God’s creations has been inscribed in the
sacred books (see HQ V 6:59). Moreover representative headers
examples were revealed in the HQ through the miraculous separated
letters at the top of 29 sub-chapters. Each of these miraculous
headers is of 1 to 5 letters length, appearing as one or two
isolated units, and allowing repetition among them.
Furthermore, the discovery of such internal deciphers could be a
disadvantageous turning point towards wrongly manipulating the
change in the nature and forms of living beings. It was scripted in
the Holy Qur’an that the Man will attain the stand of changing God’s
creation as indicated from the following phrase conveyed by the
“Satan”: “And, indeed I will order them to change the nature created
by God.” (HQ V 4:119).
As a future prospective, it can be stated that the new updated joint
two-level system configuration supported by the consolidity-based
theory of change represents an important research advancement that
could open a new horizon for comprehending past, present and future
behavior of real life natural and man-made physical systems with
strong emphasis on the living beings pathway of life. Such theory
will have very wide scope of applications in various sciences and
disciplines, and will complement many other well-established and
fundamental theories and notion.
