Flow of Knowledge

Thermodynamics offers a conceptual entry into the domain of knowledge. The behavior of biological and life-form knowledge centric objects or KCOs tend to be probabilistic because their decision-making becomes individualistic, time, and situation dependent. Such variations are accommodated in the equations for kenergy and kentropy by suitable constants that traditionally relate energy and entropy in thermodynamics. These constants are initially “borrowed” from thermodynamics and then the equations are “modeled” after the classic equations in electrical engineering, yet again modified to fit into the science of knowledge. As it is seen in this chapter, the traditional physical sciences start to buckle under stress and psyche ...
