List of Terms

Because of the many disciplines involved in these areas of exploration and the rapidly developing theories associated with them, clarification of terms is vital. However, we do not intend to post final decisions on terminology but rather expose users to the variety of meanings.

cartesian cut

heisenberg cut

hierarchy theory

metaphysics (Newtonian vs. ecological)

ontic descriptions
