Systems Basics: Systemic solutions with evidence-based medicine for relief from Insomnia – the systems thinking for everyone’s body through Traditional Chinese Medicine on the systems science of Taichi Yin-Yang Five Elements 系統論基礎工作坊:循證醫學緩解失眠的探討 – 藉以理解人類身體的系統性與中醫藥學之太極陰陽五行天地人的東方系統思維

 International Society for the Systems Sciences 61th conference

Sunday Afternoon workshop: 

Insomnia has become a modern city sickness. Research has been carried out to evaluate different Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments using evidence-based medicine methodologies. The cause of insomnia may come from one or more of the five elements systems, including the Wood mental system, the Fire emotional system, the Metal behavioural system, the Water spiritual system, and the Earth physical system (with one or more of its five sub-systems).

From this analysis we will try to find the common structure and relationship that can be generalized using systems thinking which could be applied to treat different sickness and promote healthcare. Research has shown that this systems thinking is rooted in the fundamental concept in traditional Chinese culture since around 500BC. The concept is also embedded in the teaching of Confucianism, Buddhism, Taoism, and Traditional Chinese Medicine. The traditional Chinese system theories under investigation include the Taichi yin-yang system theory, the Five systems theory of the human mind, and the Traditional Chinese Medicine differential diagnosis-cure process. These theories are found to be related to different modern system theories including Viable system model.

Taichi yin-yang system theory describes the relationship between any two entities (element/process) at any level of interest. It concerns the quantitative and qualitative changes between the entities. This is related to causal loop diagram (CLD) in system dynamics which uses reinforcing loop and balancing loop. The observer is not specified in the theories, but the perspectives of the observer actually determine the entities, the unit of quantitative changes, and the ratio of qualitative changes. The Five systems theory of the human mind is one of the important concepts developed in the teaching of Buddha. The Five systems are: awareness, perspective, sensation, action and physical object. These five systems can be used to describe the properties of the observer and the decision maker.

The Traditional Chinese Medicine differential diagnosis-cure process is a practical systemic process that has been used daily for more than 2000 years. It is believed that the whole macroscopic-microscopic spectrum of systems can be suitably accommodated. The system state identification involves three pairs of direction-forming spectrums. The Superficial and Internal spectrum gathers information between the boundary and the system. The Cold and Hot spectrum gathers information between the form and function, or matter and energy within the system. The Deficient and Excess spectrum gathers information between the environment and the system. Strategy can then be formulated to regulate and maintain the system.

 International Society for the Systems Sciences 61th conference

Sunday Morning Systems Basics workshop:

The ability to concentrate has grown in importance in the ever speeding pace of modern society. The feedback cycle of information and matter are getting faster and faster. Moreover, multi-tasking has become a fundamental prerequisite for daily work. Furthermore, quality of services and quantity of serving duration keep increasing. All these factors require our good concentration. Research has been carried out to evaluate different treatments using evidence-based medicine methodologies. One of the treatments is the observation of one’s breath, namely Anapana, and its extension to the observation of the bodily sensations called Vipassana. In this workshop we will practice the mini version of the treatment.

From the analysis of the practice, we will try to find the common structure and relationship that can be generalized using systems thinking which could help us understand how our minds work. Research has shown that this systems thinking is rooted from the teaching of Buddha.

The application of system theory requires the understanding of ourselves and of each other, the nature, and the past and future possibilities in a systemic way. That is, we need to understand both the structure and dynamics of our physical body systems, and of our mental mind observations. Research shows that the composition of our body and that of our mind may be explained by the same system theory relating to energy, matter, life and information. We employed this simple ancient system theory as taught by Buddha to investigate how our naturally systemic-structured mind arbitrarily developed all the non-systemic and problematic way of thinking. We use our body to experience the world around us but our mind is the one which is observing and making decisions to change the world. System theory sees the world as composing of observers, decision makers, systems, the environment, the boundaries and relationships between them. There are in effect two opposite forces in the world that constantly interact with each other, creating a flow of energy, matter and information between systems and the environment. On one hand we have the disorder force governed by the second law of thermodynamics that drives everything into an equilibrium state with maximum entropy. On the other hand we have the organizational force governed by the constraints of a system that drives the system into a particular desired steady state with a low entropy.

Our minds are both the observer and the decision maker confronting a major problem. Throughout our life we look for satisfaction that brings happiness. Our government has been relying on economics to achieve this but 80% of the time we are dissatisfied with the people and situations around us, giving rise to craving, aversion and ignorance in our minds and creating all sorts of problems in our society. This is called suffering in the teaching of Buddha, and he offered us a three step solution for our mind. In this workshop we will investigate the systemic view of these three steps, namely self-protection, concentration and purification of mind. We will also investigate a 10-day Vipassana mental healthcare program for people of all religions including scientific communities. It is believed that such a program could bring happiness, peace and harmony for our society.

Is death the end of our lives or just the beginning of another new life? A system undergoes a transition of system state upon death, but will the system continue in other forms at other places? Or will it just terminate totally? What are the possible new system states and are they sustainable? In this workshop we will investigate the sustainability of Heaven, Hell, Earth and Nibbana (null). We will also investigate the way to prepare ourselves to transit into these states.

 

Happy Birthday to my dear teacher Buddha

2017 International Society for the Systems Sciences ISSS 61th conference Health and Systems Thinking Special Integration Group SIG Call for papers #isss61 國際系統科學協會第61屆國際研討會

2017 International Society for the Systems Sciences ISSS 61th conference
Health and Systems Thinking Special Integration Group SIG

Call for papers

The World Health Organization’s (WHO) definition of health in their constitution is: “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” We employ the Chinese five elements systems theory to categorize health systems into physical health (Earth), mental health (Wood), emotional health (Fire), behavioural health (Metal), and spiritual health (Water). This Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Systemic Healthcare Engineering theory can be applied according to the viewpoint of any particular observer. Further study reveals that the same structure could be also applied to the levels above and below the particular observer level, as well as the interactions between the levels. http://www.yinyangbalance.asia/blog/?p=2282

A Five Elements Level i+-1 system structure is proposed as an observer-system structure. Every point of view (Wood) will have its own choice of perspectives (Water), which will form a particular observer and hence a specific set of analysis (Fire), behaviour (Metal) and physical systems (Earth). These points of view could originate from DNA level, virus level, cell level, human individual level, organizational level, governmental level, or even the whole earth level.

Extending the theories for systemic health of human into the systemic health of any systems with any observer’s point of view, is the development towards the General System Theory. Hopefully we will eventually meet with other Special Integration Groups at the same point with similar systems theories. We are also looking forward to the moment when the western systems theories meets with the eastern systems theories, and together they integrate to benefit the world in solving complex problems.

If you share this vision (Wood), then I invite you to use this insightful gut feeling (Fire) through your heart to make it happen (Metal), by submitting your papers (Earth) or coming to the Conference for group discussions (Earth). We will all benefit from the pool of knowledge stored in the environment of perspectives (Water) accumulated in all the experts and members of International Society for the Systems Sciences (ISSS).

Let us discuss health and any kinds of systems thinking at any of the above areas and levels. Abstract presentations are also welcome. Let us take this opportunity during this systems thinking age, to investigate how a particular health issue could be analyzed with systems thinking, and evolve together for better understanding of the issue and for feasible systemic solutions.

This is a project that cannot be accomplished by one pair of hands. This is indeed a historical milestone that requires a collective mind-sharing to establish. I appeal to your support and look forward to your contributions.

Presentation format (Taichi): 15-20min presentation (Yang), 5min for feedback and questions (Yin), and 5min to integrate with other papers and the theme of the Conference (new level of Taichi).

The theme of  International Society for the Systems Sciences ISSS 2017 61th conference in Vienna includes:

立春與農曆新年之分別 The difference between the beginning of spring and Chinese new year


2017.01.28 農曆新年初一 丙申年 Chinese New year day 1, Fire Monkey year continues
2017.02.03 農曆新年初七 丁酉年 立春 Chinese New year day 7, Fire Rooster year starts

立春才是真正一年之開始,開始進入丁酉年。今天2月3日出生的孩子才算是生肖屬火雞。所以今天正式在此祝福你

Five elements Healthcare successful! 五行養生成功:
養脾土:Earth physically strong 修身健康
養心火:Fire emotionally happy 修心受樂
養肝木:Wood mentally kind 慈悲養性
養肺金:Metal behaviorally charitable 修行為善
養腎水:Water spiritually enlightened 正見靈修
初七是人日,人人的生日,也祝你生日快樂!

Chinese employ both the precise Solar calendar and the precise Lunar calendar in daily lives. Chinese new year always starts with the new moon of the first month of the year. However, the Earth may not get into the right position around the sun for the first day of spring to start. As it happen this year, today is the first day of spring but already the seventh day of the first month. Rooster year officially starts today and hence only babies born afterwards belong to the Rooster family! So let’s officially make the new year wish to you today:

Five elements Healthcare successful! 五行養生成功:
養脾土:Earth physically strong 修身健康
養心火:Fire emotionally happy 修心受樂
養肝木:Wood mentally kind 慈悲養性
養肺金:Metal behaviorally charitable 修行為善
養腎水:Water spiritually enlightened 正見靈修
初七是人日,人人的生日,也祝你生日快樂!

The seventh day of the first month is also the birthday for everyone, so happy early birthday as well!

Systemic wishes for the Chinese New Year to you all! According to the Five Aggregate Human Mind system developed by Buddha, our minds are composed of five systems. Systemic Healthcare is about balancing each one of these systems, and balancing between the systems. The ultimate goal is to live healthily so that we can work and play and achieve our tasks in life. Let us examine the wishes and present an introduction to the way to achieve them.

Chinese people believe that planning should be done at the beginning of the year and the beginning of the day. During Chinese New Year, people in China make good wishes for themselves and for others, and only auspicious words should come out of their lips. They have special blessing phrases usually comprising four Chinese characters. Let us find out how all these wishes can come true.

The basic essentials in life include clothing, food, housing and transportation. In the Confucian classic, one of the disciples once said “Food and sex are basic instincts of human beings”. The desire for food ensures the physical survival of oneself, and the instinct on sexual desire makes sure the continuation of the family, clan and race. In order to have a stable flow, better basic essentials are required. They are usually related to the following four-character blessing phrases.

豐衣足食《戰國策。秦策五》 Plentiful clothing and abundant food supply.安居樂業 Comfortable living and good career行動方便 Convenient movement交通方便Convenient transportation四通八達Unobstructed spatial connection朝發暮至《後漢書。烏桓傳》Speedy connection from one place to another

These desires stimulate the research into efficient and effective methods for good survival and continuity, and part of the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Healthcare is about physical body healthcare. Here we will try to match it with the physical component of the Five Aggregate Human Mind System developed by Buddha. TCM healthcare can be divided into three different secret ingredients.

The first ingredient is the TCM diet which includes the technique of having “ample food”. The essence of the TCM diet is their categorization of food into COLD, COOL, MILD, WARM and HOT, which also extends to the same categorization of herbs. TCM names this extension “The common source of food and herbs”. Using the 3D Superficial-Internal, Cold-Hot, and Deficient-Excess spectrums co-ordination system, one can perform the Differential-diagnosis to determine the state (position) of the body, and hence the corresponding healthcare food.

In order to have convenient movement and transportation, and unobstructed spatial connection, one needs good ability for physical body movement. Therefore the second part of the TCM Healthcare secret is the TCM exercise therapy – Open and Close 21 form. This includes the essence of the popular traditional Chinese Taichi Kung Fu. We filter away the fighting techniques and leave only those forms that can train all the joints of the human body for speedy recovery from pain caused by tendon injuries and physical sickness. 

After handling the instinct for food, now let us investigate the issue of sexual impulses. The common definition of sex is impulses generated by the sex organ causing emotional desire of the mind (heart) followed by the act of sexual intercourse. The definition of sex can be expanded into a wider and more general basis as craving impulses of the mind for continuation of the family, clan and race, which then generate emotions to make love. Such craving gives rise to the study into effective and efficient strategies for sustainment of families, countries and the world, as in the teaching of Confucianism. These Healthcare strategies are included in the third part of the secret – Lifestyle Healthcare.

Craving impulses stimulate the attainment action in our behavior. The “Twelve casualty cycle” in the teaching of Buddha points out that “craving” and “desire to attain” are two of the immortal seeds in the cycle. Similar teaching also appears in the teaching of Laozi (Lao Tsz 46): “No disaster is greater than being discontented. No catastrophe is greater than having unlimited desires. Contentment of oneself deriving from the feeling of not wanting more things will always make one feel satisfied at all times”.

Therefore the next step after physical healthcare is emotional and mental healthcare, both of which are usually linked in Chinese culture. Here we try to match the emotional healthcare with the heart system, i.e., the “sensation aggregate”, and also match the mental healthcare with human character, the liver system, i.e., the “perspective aggregate”, of the Five Aggregate Human Mind System developed by Buddha.

The goal of emotional healthcare is to remain undisturbed by negative emotions thus falling into a vicious cycle. One should instead consistently concentrate on positive emotions, gradually and naturally resulting in the distillation of happy emotions and pleasant bodily sensations.

Mental Healthcare aims to improve one’s habitual love and hate tendencies. We should eliminate feelings of jealousy for the rich and contempt for the poor. One should also forsake employing improper means purely to succeed. Nor should one selfishly seek pleasure at the expense of the feelings of others. In contrast we should develop our love towards the four pure characteristics in the teaching of Buddha, and relinquish the three evil toxic characteristics of human, namely craving, aversion and ignorance. The four pure characteristics can be simply understood as “unconditional love” towards others, mercy on the elderly and weak, sympathetic joy of sharing, and acceptance of the reality of life and human relations.

Behavioral Healthcare is about our action, and we try to match it with the “Action Aggregate” of the Five Aggregate Human Mind system of the teaching of Buddha. Buddha divides the Action Aggregate into three different kinds, namely the bodily action, the verbal action and the mental intention action (brain wave? energy field?). The teachings of Buddha include: “Do not withhold an action because it will only do little good, and do not perform an action because it will only do little evil”. Therefore we should choose only charitable actions with goodwill.  Only such actions could achieve the traditional Chinese wish of “Everyone embraced in one harmonious Qi”. The definition of being healthy by the World Health Organization, WHO, includes healthiness in three aspects, namely the physical, mental and “social”.

Spiritual Healthcare is about the improvement of our in-born characteristics, possibly hidden in our physical DNA or our energetic “spirits” fields (Aura?). We now try to match this with the “Observation Aggregate” of the Five Aggregate Human Mind system in the teaching of Buddha. Here we must put our foundation in the fundamental teaching of Buddha in the “Four Nobel Truth”, guided especially by the “Right View” and “Right Thought” in the “Eight-Fold Nobel Path”, which is the fourth part of the Noble Truth.

In summary, we have, in our lives, all experienced “I failed as much as I have succeeded. (Dicky Fox in movie Jerry Maguire 1996)”, and the pain of aging, sickness and death of our loved ones. From these experiences we should try to realize the truth of “Dissatisfaction (Suffering)”. Our experience also shows that unexpected changes in people and events around us would stimulate unexpected emotions and bodily sensations within us. We should from these experiences come to realize the truth of “Impermanence”. In Behavioral Healthcare we practice the act of helping others unconditionally with different degree of sacrifices. We should from these experiences come to realize the truth of “Egolessness”. And in short, we should live in the present moment (awareness), happily accept the karma and reality (equanimity), live our lives properly (Right Livelihood), respect others (sympathetic joy), have mercy for the elderly and the young (Compassion), and love others unconditionally.

To be continued… keep an eye on our social media.

Healthcare and Meditation are complicated knowledge. Here we are barely presenting an introduction. To learn properly, you should consult your teachers and masters in Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism, and Chinese Medicine Practitioners (E C), and other professionals.

More wishes for you: Healthcare successful!

Smiling at all times, Satisfactory progress academically, Shinning on you from your lucky star, Peace for the elderly and the young, Healthy physical growth, Dreams come true, Safe Travelling, Tranquility for all seasons, Immortality with the Universe, Coverage in a Harmonious Qi, Wishes for perpetual happiness and pleasantness, Youthfulness forever, Good appetite is good karma, Strong team and equipment, Five blessings knocking on your door, Energetic like the shining star, Happiness in the New Year, Smart and presentable, Lucky redness glowing on your face, Welcome the Spring and receive good luck, Achieving success according to your wishes, Develop Spectacular and outstanding skills, Good circulation of Fung Shui

一年之計在於春,一日之計在於晨。中國人在農曆新年都會在心裡默默許願,盼望擁有美好的將來,也會在口中說出美好的祝願。就讓我們看看怎樣才是美好,又怎樣才可以達成願望!

衣食住行是我們身體生存的必須條件。告子在《孟子·告子上》說“食、色,性也”,意思是

食慾和性慾都是人的本性,是與生俱來的內心衝動。本性的“食” 是保證自己肉體在時間流的繼續存在。本性的“色”是繼而保證自己的家庭,民族,種族在時間流中的繼續存在。要有較穩定的延續,就要有較好的衣食住行。 一般跟以下的傳統語句有關:

豐衣足食《戰國策。秦策五》
安居樂業
行動方便
交通方便
四通八達
朝發暮至《後漢書。烏桓傳》

這種“喜愛”引發起確保有效率的延續方法之研究 修身。中醫對生命的保養稱之為“養生”(Healthcare),其中一方面就是保養身體,我們在這裡嘗試以佛陀的五蘊系統把修身歸入色蘊部分。我們把其分為三部秘笈。

第一部秘笈是食療養生,包括如何足食之技巧。其精髓在於對食物的寒涼平溫熱及表里補瀉之分類,從而再推至藥食同源的普及化層靣。只要於中醫之“三維表里寒熱虛實系統“中, “辯證“出身體現在處於的坐標(體質),就可以進行中醫養生食療。

要行動方便、交通方便、四通八達就要有好的身體活動能力。所以第二部分的中醫養生秘笈是“運動養生-中庸功“,這包括由中國國髓太極拳中精煉出來,去除技擊部分而剩下的二十一式運動,能夠令全身每一個關節都得到適當的鍛練,從而加速疼痛症狀及其它疾病的修復。

處理完“食“ 的胃部衝動問題後就是“色“的性器官衝動問題。 狹義的“色”是指性器官的“喜愛”衝動所引起的心之情緒衝動,繼而引起的性行為。廣義一點是指腦袋思維上對家庭,民族及種族的“喜愛”衝動所引起的心之情緒衝動,繼而引起的性行為。這種“喜愛”引發了有效率的延續方法齊家、治國、平天下。這些養生方法包括在第三部秘笈裏面的“生活養生“。

這些衝動的“愛慾”都引發了行為上的“取得”。佛陀教導的十二因緣中有指出之不良種子。而老子曰: 禍莫大於不知足,咎莫大於欲得,故知足之足,常足矣!

所以修身的下一步是修心养性。 我們在這裡嘗試以佛陀的五蘊系統把修心歸類為心情而入受蘊部分,而把養性歸類為性格而入想蘊部分 。

修心的成就應為

受負面情緒之出現而心動,繼而誤入惡性循環中。並應時時向正能量之心情專注,慢慢心中自然只剩下喜及樂之感受。

養性是要改善我們性格上的慣性愛惡。破除憎人富貴厭人窮為求成功,不擇手段我有我去感受,懶理你的感受、等等不良愛惡,而去學習發展對慈悲喜舍的偏愛,及對貪嗔癡的偏惡。 慈悲喜舍應可以簡單理解為不求回報的愛、對老弱的憐憫、對喜悅的共享、及對人事現實的接受。

修行是行為上之養生,我們在這裡嘗試以佛陀的五蘊系統把修行歸入行蘊部分。佛陀把行蘊分為身口意三業(做了的行為),即以身體影響他人,以語言出口影響他人,及以意念影響他人(腦電波或氣場?)。佛陀曾教導

以小善而不為,不以小惡而為之。所以修行應以擇善而為之。這樣才可以一團和氣。世界衛生組織對健康的定義指向三方面,分別為身體健康,心理健康及社交健康

靈修為先天命格之養生,我們在這裡嘗試以佛陀的五蘊系統把靈修歸入識蘊部分。這裡必須以佛陀所留給我們的基礎教導四聖諦,尤其是其中的八正道中 之正見正思維作為指導。簡單地介紹,是要從人生不如意事十常八九,或從身體的生老病死中領悟之真相。要從身外之事物及相應的心中之情緒,及身體之感受的變幻莫測中領悟無常之真相。並要從修行中學習以幫助他人為己任的自我犧牲行為中領悟無我的真相。再簡而言之,就是活在當下(覺知),樂天知命,接受現實(舍心),努力生活(正命),尊重別人(隨喜),愛護老幼 (慈悲)

待续。。。

養生及修行打坐是大學問,在這裡只能作簡略介紹,大家應當向老師、儒釋道大師及中醫師等專業人士好好請教學習。

再祝大家:養生成功!
笑口常開,學業進步,福星高照,老少平安,快高長大,心想事成,出入平安,四季平安,天增歲月人增夀,一團和氣,常常喜樂,青春常駐,食得是福,人強馬壯,五福臨門,冏冏有神,新年快樂,聰明伶俐,紅光滿面,迎春接福,得心應手,武藝超群,風生水起。。。
