Omtale Architectonics of Semiotics
Societies are understood as architectures for the systematic transformation of energy into information/matter, and, using this hypothesis, are examined within two architectural frames - that of the unilevel and the bilevel society. This study lifts semiotics from its literary linguistic sphere and expands biophysics from a materialist focus in order to explore the interrelationships of these two forces of organization within the evolving complexities of sociocognitive forms of order. The conflicts and resolutions between the differential goals of the group's recursive metanarrative and the individual's emergent freedoms of choice are explored as natural aspects of a lyric-poetic evolution of the complexity of energy as operative within sociocognitive forms of reality. This interdisciplinary work offers original examinations of societies as complex codifications of energy, and of human beings as integrated aspects of larger and more complex codifications of energy.
