Living system's structure 

A living system is any living creature on Planet Earth that behave so as to survive within a niche of an ecosystem, by interacting permanently with stimuli and events. Such are: biological cells, plants, vertebrates, invertebrates, ... their social groups and societies as sociosystems, and for men, systems up to supranational societies.

The structure of any living creature is emergent from its phylogenetic origin,  with its intrinsic metabolic processes within its physicochemical components, as shaping and maintaining its "physiological milieu". The body is therefore managed by both chemical and neurobiological processors, which, together with electrical impulses along neural networks, make emerge interconnected actions for survival.

Living system's behaviors

Behaviors of living creatures are motivated by endogenous and/or exogenous events that occur permanently within both their environmental structures (body, ecosystems, sociosystems) and the different  interdependent areas that undergo those environmental  or milieu changes that are circularly affecting the dynamic of their survival means and values. Behaviors are then emerging from such processes.

Systemic  transdisciplinarity

No living system such as cells, organs, organisms, individual or collective systems (societies) can be analyzed or understood if only approached from a mono-disciplinary point of view. So, life being a transdisciplinary event, systems science takes into account all survival phenomena and dynamics,  its processors, and/or sociogroups events that are biological, psychical, physicochemical and sociological at the same time. Linked to neighboring cells, organisms, groups and societies.

"The Bioethism" is the acronym of: "Biology, Ethology-ecology, Humanism"

The Bioethism paradigm is a transdisciplinary approach of the bio-psychophysiological ("biops") structure and behaviors of living creatures of species' any existing variety on Planet Earth. And  it takes into consideration the fact many process features are common to their survival means dynamics. Moreover, because of the complete and complex interdependencies of life's systems processes, the Bioethism approach supports and promotes "trans-analysis and a synthesis spirit" that provides an efficient practice of transdisciplinarity within decision-making and projects engineering .

Transdisciplinarity footbridges and links as life's disciplines interdependencies

Between the different disciplines that constitute the understanding of life's interconnected and interdependent survival processes, they are "areas" that represent links in between different parts of an organism. It can be lymphatic processors or neural synapses as well as social institutions that participate in the maintenance of the global survival dynamic.  There is also a complete net of interrelations, in the shape of footbridges and links all along the psychosomatic and somatopsychic processes that interact with both endogenous and exogenous environment events.


The environmental psycho-somatopsychic circular flows dynamics

The definition of the "E-psop" is the environmental psycho-somatopsychic flow that are permanent circular moves throughout the environments of the exterior, the brain and the body. Whenever you consider a living system individuality at any moment of its survival behaviors, you have to take into consideration the different levels of the three environments that are concerned by the bio-physiological and neural processing flows:

  • the different levels of the exterior environments (close, less close.... and in 3D)

  • the levels inside the brain milieu : cerebellum, limbic system, cortex,

  • the different levels within the body milieu : limbs and muscles, organs, neural networks, and metabolism processors (immune, hormonal, humoral, neuronal)

The management of the different fluxes of information that percolate throughout such complex set of networks, all being interdependent and thus interconnected, sustain the combined dynamics that at the same time and permanently ensure survival.

The role of the brain, being central, assume those mechanisms that are unconscious, managing metabolism requirements by interior information treatments, and conscious management of the stimuli that are promoted by the exterior through sensory organs and the solution of thoughts and emotions.

Living systems entities have specific decision-making abilities

Any species or group's behavior for survival is supported by some decision-making necessities such as adopting a certain flight strategy being aware of a predator presence. However the success of a move does not prevail upon a chance for safety.

The actual education  of humans is not much of a teaching showing how much the contribution of  transdisciplinarity, and transverse walks optimize relevant and viable decision-making. The individual's qualification in approaching problem solving receives solutions by analyzing much of the impact of interdependent processes that rule the issue of an act. Therefore, too many of them induce to perverse effects that more or less strain paths towards realistic survival conditions. In the animal world, decision-making for survival may be more easily lethal. 

Living systems entities have specific projects engineering abilities

Projects engineering is a universal dynamic applied by nature towards managing physicochemical constraints and necessities together with that of survival fundamental values. Living systems of any species manage a large number of fundamental values for their survival, such as: inhabit, rest, eat, court, reproduce, defend their territory, defend themselves, compete, become the dominant of a social group, ... and, in general, interact with environments and milieu events. Their diverse levels of ingenuity, managing each of these survival necessities, require specific abilities into engineering their actions. Housing building, tools for food-hunting, etc.

"The Bioethism", a transdisciplinary paradigm that describes living systems' life

The Bioethism transdisciplinary paradigm approach is of an uppermost relevancy in terms of living systems survival understandings since it permits to re-center many of actual anthropocentric assumptions and epistemological viewpoints towards the reality of living systems' abilities to manage their specific survival means and values, in terms of "needs and necessities".  We can assume that life exists from processes "systemicity".

The Bioethism is then of consequence to induce to the development of many new theoretical supports necessary to more complete ecosystemic, sociosystemic, socioeconomic and cognitive theories thanks to the specific transdisciplinary approach of living systems' behaviors.

Among different study issues are such as that of environmental psychology, local and sub-global collective sociality, local and sub-global collective socioeconomic and local sociogroups psychosomatopsychics, ("E-psop" for short) when considered as a general natural in & out life's process for survival in terms of the circular fluxes that occur in between and throughout "external environments, body and brain milieu". These examples are here to be mentioned in terms of some fields that emerge from the Bioethism transdisciplinary approach.
