Abstract:
General systems theories have been developing with the aim of understanding the general fundamental components and relationships of knowledge across different disciplines. After 60 years of hard work and academic exchanges, many modern Western systems theories have developed with a variety of terminologies, illustrating the relationships between observers and decision makers, between systems and environment, and between the organizational forces of systems (decreases entropy with emerging effect) and the chaotic forces of the 2nd law of thermodynamics (increases entropy with de-emerging effect). In order to enrich and enlighten further development of the theories, ancient Eastern wisdoms from Confucianism, Buddhism, Taoism, and Traditional Chinese Medicine (
儒釋道醫) have been analyzed with modern systems terminologies for the “Integral East-West Systems Thinking” project by the Ancient Balance Medicine Research Institute.

Tree of Life” is a term and concept that appeared in different ancient cultures. The one that is being investigated is the Hermetic version of Tree of Life, Qabalah, as illustrated by SpiritScienceCentral.com with 10 spheres or “planes” of creation which are individually called Sephira. Other versions have more relationships between the spheres, for example, the Jewish and the Christian version. The research challenge lies in how to co-relate these 10 spheres with the numbers 2 in Ying-Yang by Taoism, 3 in Heaven-Earth-Human Trinity by Confucianism, 4 in Distictions-Systems-Relationships-Perspectives theory of analysis by Derek Cabrera, 5 in Five Elements Differential Diagnosis-Cure Process by Traditional Chinese Medicine, Five Aggregates Human Mind Systems by Buddha, Five Virtues by Confucianism, Five components in R-theory of Relational Sciences by John Kineman, 13 in the 5+3+5 levels in Emergent Meta-system in Schemas Thoery by Kent Palmer, and 15 in the 3×5 levels in the Taichi Yin-Yang Five Elements Trinity i±1 System by Ancient Balance Medicine Research Institute. All theories seem to attempt to release the boundary of duality between the physical world with precise engineering and the world of consciousness with fuzzy cognitive processes, and eventually develop different united non-dual systems thinkings. The research in this paper has found a possible set of co-relations among these different systems thinkings, by analyzing in a systemic manner, the structure of the components and relationships, and their corresponding properties and transformations.

It is believed that the bridging of these Ancient-Modern East-West (古今中西)systems thinkings would inspire more research and academic exchanges, leading to a more holistic worldview for understanding ourselves and the world around us.

Description
《五行》篇是我国儒家早期经典著作。1973年长沙马王堆汉墓出土了大量文物,其中包括帛书《五行》篇,并被国务院收录《国家珍贵古籍名录》中。本经与《论语》《大学》和《中庸》的思想一脉相承,注重的是人的道德养成,这对于现代社会主义核心价值观的建设具有重要的参考意义和价值。目前对这一经典的研究著作较少,在仅有的十几部研究著作中,几乎都集中在考据、辨义、训诂等方面,弘音著的《禅解五行篇》在对《五行》篇进行解析的基础上,从禅学的角度深入发掘其思想内涵,以使广大读者了解古人的智慧,弘扬祖国优秀传统文化。

Description
The Satipatthana Sutta is the Buddha’s single most important discourse describing the practice of meditation. Here for the first time is the condensed version of the daily evening discourse given by the author to his students on a seven day retreat. This text can serve as a review after taking a course or for scholars as a further study of the sutta. The book is also a great tool to help meditators practice and as S.N. Goenka said, “Liberation can only be gained by practice, never by mere discussion.” Included is a list of abbreviations, a glossary, and an English translation of Pali passages.
