The article reviews the stable logic analysis model of complex systems or steady multilateral systems with two non-compatibility relations. Energy concept in Physics is introduced to the multilateral systems and used to deal with the multilateral system diseases. By using mathematical reasoning, it is demonstrated that the treatment principle: “Virtual disease is to fill his mother but real disease is to rush down his son” and “Strong inhibition of the same time, support the weak” which due to the “Yin Yang Wu Xing” Theory in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

The stable logic analysis model of a complex system or a steady multilateral system with two non-compatibility relations has been used in medicine, physical, finance, intelligent control and automation. Its main purpose is to investigate the structure of stable logic analysis corresponding to a general complex system.

Two stable logic analysis models of complex systems have been investigated, the causal model with compatibility relations, the causal model with non-compatibility relations. This article focuses on the causal model with non-compatibility relations.

Zhang’s theories, multilateral matrix theory [

The article proceeds as follows: Section 2 contains basic concepts and main theorems of steady multilateral systems while both intervention rule and self-protection rule based on the multilateral systems are demonstrated in Section 3. Some discussions are given in Section 4 and conclusions are drawn in Section 5.

In the real world, we are enlightened from some concepts and phenomena such as “biosphere”, “food chain”, “ecological balance” etc. With research and practice, by using the theory of multilateral matrices [

Let V be a non-empty set and define its direct product as. A non-empty subset is called a relation of. Let be a nonempty set with a relation. The relation is called an equivalent relation, denoted by, if the following three conditions are all true:

1) Reflexive: for all, i.e.,;

2) Symmetric: if, then, i.e., if, then;

3) Conveyable (Transitivity): if, then, i.e., if then

Furthermore, the relationis called a compatibility relation if there exists a non-empty subset such that satisfies at least one of the conditions above. And the relation is called a non-compatibility relation if there doesn’t exist any non-empty subset such that satisfies any one of the conditions above. Any one of compatibility relations can be expanded into an equivalent relation [

Western science only considers the reasoning under one Axiom system such that only compatibility relation reasoning is researched. However there are many Axiom systems in Nature. TCS mainly researches the generalized reasoning among many Axiom systems in Nature. Of course, she also considers the reasoning under one Axiom system but she only expands the reasoning as the equivalent relation reasoning.

Equivalent relations, even compatibility relations, cannot portray the structure of the complex systems clearly. For example, assume that and are good friends and they have close relations. So are and. However, you cannot get the conclusion that and are good friends.

We denote as that and have close relations. Then the example above can be denoted as:, do not imply, i.e., the relation is a non-conveyable (or non-transitivity) relation, of course, a non-equivalent relation. In the following, we consider two non-compatibility relations.

Let be a nonempty set. There are two kinds of opposite relations: the neighboring relation, denoted by, and the alternate relation, denoted by, having the property:

1) If, , then;

if, , then;

if, , then;

2) If, , then;

if, , then;

if, , then.

Two kinds of opposite relations cannot be exist separately. Such reasoning can be expressed in

Let be a nonempty set and be not equal one

another. If equivalent relations, neighboring relations, and alternate relations in exist at the same time, then a genetic reasoning is defined as follows:

1) if, then;

2) if , then;

3) if, , then;

4) if, , then.

For a nonempty set and its some relations (nonempty sets):

denote that, the form (or simply, V) is called a multilateral system [2,14,15], if satisfies the following properties:

1)where the notation that means that .

2)

where there is at least a such that and.

3) For any, we have, where .

4) For any, there exists a relation such that.

The 4) is called the generalized reasoning, the 1) the uniqueness of reasoning, the 2) the hereditary of reasoning (or genetic reasoning) and the 3) the equivalent property of reasoning of both relations and, i.e., the reasoning of is equivalent to the reasoning of. In this case, the two-relation set is a lateral relation of. Furthermore, the and are called the state space and relationship classes considered of, respectively.

A multilateral system is called complex if there exists at least a non-compatibility relation. In this case, the multilateral system is also called a logic analysis model of complex systems [8-11].

Assume that there exist three relations: an equivalent relation, a neighboring relation, and an alternate relation in system V, which satisfy genetic reasoning. If for any two elements, at least there is one of the three relations between and, and there are not and at the same time, then it is easily to prove that V is an unique multilateral system with two noncompatibility relations. The multilateral system V is also called a logic analysis model of complex systems, which is equivalent to the logic architecture of reasoning model of “Yin-Yang”(阴阳) Theory in Ancient China. In this paper, we only consider this multilateral system. There are many reasoning models in TCS which are not “YinYang “model but which are multilateral systems above. The generalized multilateral systems with many noncompatibility relations are given in [

Theorem 2.1. For a multilateral system V with two non-compatibility relations, , only one of the following five relations is existent and correct:

.

Theorem 2.2. For a multilateral system V with two non-compatibility relations, , the following reasoning holds.

1) if, then;

2) if, then;

3) if, then;

4) if, then.

A multilateral system V is steady (or, stable) with two non-compatibility relations if there exists at least the chain circle, which satisfy at least one of the two conditions below:

Theorem 2.3. For a steady multilateral system V with two non-compatibility relations, there exists five-length chain, and the length of the chain is integer times of 5.

Theorem 2.4. For a steady multilateral system V with two non-compatibility relations, there exists a partition of V as follows:

which is a chain.

Theorem 2.5. For the decomposition above for the steady multilateral system with two non-compatibility relations, there exist relations in

Theorem 2.6. For each element in a steady multilateral system with two non-compatibility relations, there exist five equivalent classes below:

which the five equivalent classes have relations in

These theorems can been found in [8-11] and [14,15]. Figures 2 and 3 in Theorems 2.5 and 2.6 are the Figures of “Wu Xing”(五行) Theory in Ancient China. The steady multilateral system with two non-compatibility relations is equivalent to the logic architecture of reasoning model of “Yin Yang Wu Xing” Theory in ancient China.

Energy concept is an important concept in Physics. Now, we introduce this concept to the multilateral systems and use these concepts to deal with the multilateral system diseases.

In mathematics, a multilateral system is said to have energy (or dynamic) if there is a none negative function φ(*) which makes every subsystem meaningful of the multilateral system.

For two subsystems and of multilateral system V, denote (or, or) means, (or, or,).

For subsystems and where,

, let, and

, where is the total energy of both and.

For an equivalent relation, if (the normal state of the energy of ), then the equivalent relation _{ }is called that likes which means that is similar to. In this case, the is also called the brother of while the is also called the brother of. In the causal model, the is called the similar family member of while the is also called the similar family member of. There are not any causal relation of non-compatibility considered between and.

For a neighboring relation, if (the normal state of the energy of), then the neighboring relation _{ }is called that V_{i} bears (or loves) [or that is born (or loved) by V_{i}] which means that V_{i}_{ }is beneficial on each other. In this case, the V_{i} is called the mother of while the is called the son of V_{i}. In the causal model, the V_{i} is called the beneficial cause of while the is called the beneficial effect of V_{i}.

For an alternate relation, if (the normal state of the energy of), then the alternate relation is called as that kills (or that is killed by) which means that is harmful on each other. In this case, the is called the bane of while the is called the prisoner of. In the causal model, the is called the harmful cause of while the is called the harmful effect of.

In the future, unless stated otherwise, any equivalent relation is the liking relation, any neighboring relation is the bearing relation (or the loving relation), and any alternate relation is the killing relation.

Suppose is a steady multilateral system having energy, then during normal operation, its energy function for any subsystem of the multilateral system has an average (or expected value in Statistics), the state is called normal when the energy function is nearly to the average. Normal state is the better state.

A subsystem of a multilateral system is called not running properly (or disease, abnormal), if the energy deviation from the average of the subsystems is too large, the high [real disease (实病)] or the low [virtual disease (虚病)].

In a subsystem of a multilateral system being not running properly, if the energy of this sub-system is increased or decreased by using external forces and returned to its average (or its expected value), this method is called intervention (or making a treatment) to the multilateral system.

The purpose of intervention is to make the multilateral system return to normal state. The method of intervention is to increase or to decrease the energy of a subsystem.

What kind of treatment should follow the principle to treat it? Western science emphasizes direct treatment, but the indirect treatment of TCS is required. In mathematics, which is more reasonable?

Based on this idea, many issues are worth further discussion. For example, if an intervention treatment has been done to a multilateral system, what situation will happen?

For a steady multilateral system with two non-compatibility relations, suppose that there is an external force (or an intervening force) on the subsystem of which makes the energy of changed by the increment, then the energies, , , of other subsystems, , , (defined in Theorem 2.6) of will be changed by the increments, , and , respectively.

It is said that a multilateral system has the capability of intervention reaction if the multilateral system has capability to response the intervention force.

If a subsystem of multilateral system is intervened, then the energies and of the subsystems and which have neighboring relations to will change in the same direction of the force outside on. We call them beneficiaries. But the energies and of the subsystems and which have alternate relations to will change in the opposite direction of the force outside on. We call them victims.

Furthermore, in general, there is an essential principle of intervention: any one of energies and of beneficial subsystems and of changes in the same direction of the force outside on, and any one of energies and of harmful subsystems X_{K} and of changes in the opposite direction of the force outside on. The changed size (or) of the energy (or) is equal to the size (or) of (or), but the direction opposite.

Intervention Rule: In the case of virtual disease, the treatment method of intervention is to increase the energy. If the treatment has been done on, the energy increment (or, increase degree) of the son of is greater than the energy increment (or, increase degree) of the mother of, i.e., the best benefit is the son of. But the energy decrease degree of the prisoner of X is greater than the energy decrease degree of the bane of X, i.e., the worst victim is the prisoner of X.

In the case of real disease, the treatment method of intervention is to decrease the energy. If the treatment has been done on X, the energy decrease degree of the mother of X is greater than the energy decrease degree of the son of i.e., the best benefit is the mother of X. But the energy increment (or, increase degree) of the bane of X is greater than the energy increment (or, increase degree) of the prisoner of, i.e., the worst victim is the bane of.

In mathematics, the changing laws are as follows.

1) If, then,

, ,;

2) If, then,

, ,;

where. Both and are called intervention reaction coefficients, which are used to represent the capability of intervention reaction. The larger the intervention reaction coefficient, the better the capability of intervention reaction. The state is the best state but the state is the worst state.

Medical and drug resistance problem is that such a question, beginning more appropriate medical treatment, but is no longer valid after a period. It is because the capability of intervention reaction is bad, i.e., the intervention reaction coefficients and is too small. In the state, any medical and drug resistance problem is non-existence but in the state, medical and drug resistance problem is always existence. At this point, the paper advocates the principle of treatment to avoid medical and drug resistance problems.

This intervention rule is similar to force and reaction in Physics.

If there is an intervening force on the subsystem of a steady multilateral system which makes the energy changed by increment such that the energies of other subsystems, , , (defined in Theorem 2.6) of will be changed by the increments, , , , respectively, then can the multilateral system has capability to protect the worst victim to restore?

It is said that the steady multilateral system has the capability of self-protection if the multilateral system has capability to protect the worst victim to restore. The capability of self-protection of the steady multilateral system is said to be better if the multilateral system has capability to protect the all victims to restore.

In general, there is an essential principle of self-protection: any harmful subsystem of X should be protected by using the same intervention force but any beneficial subsystem of should not.

Self-protection Rule: In the case of virtual disease, the treatment method of intervention is to increase the energy. If the treatment has been done on, the worst victim is the prisoner of. Thus, the treatment of self-protection is to restore the prisoner of and the restoring method of self-protection is to increase the energy of the prisoner of by using the intervention force on according to the intervention rule.

In the case of real disease, the treatment method of intervention is to decrease the energy. If the treatment has been done on, the worst victim is the bane of. Thus, the treatment of self-protection is to restore the bane of and the restoring method of self-protection is to decrease the energy of the bane of by using the same intervention force on according to the intervention rule.

In mathematics, the following self-protection laws hold.

1) If, then the energy of subsystem will decrease the increment, which is the worst victim. So the capability of self-protection increases the energy of subsystem by increment in order to restore the worst victim by according to the intervention rule.

2) If, then the energy of subsystem will increase the increment (), which is the worst victim. So the capability of self-protection decreases the energy of subsystem, by the same size to but the direction opposite, i.e., by increment (), in order to restore the worst victim _{ }by according to the intervention rule.

The self-protection rule can be explained as: the general principle of self-protection subsystem is that the worst victim is protected firstly, the protection method is in the same way to the intervention force but any beneficiary should be not protected.

Theorem 3.1. Suppose that a steady multilateral system which has energy and capability of self-protection is with intervention reaction coefficients and. If the capability of self-protection can make the subsystem _{ }to be restored, then the following statements are true.

1) In the case of virtual disease, the treatment method is to increase the energy. If an intervention force on the subsystem of steady multilateral system is implemented such that its energy has been changed by increment, then all five subsystems will be changed finally by the increments as follows:

2) In the case of real disease, the treatment method is to increase the energy. If an intervention force on the subsystem of steady multilateral system is implemented such that its energy has been changed by increment, then all five subsystems will be changed finally by the increments as follows:

where the’s and’s are the increments under the capability of self-protection.

Proof. 1) By according to the intervention rule, if , then all five subsystems will be changed by increments as follows:

By according to self-protection rule, the worst victim of the subsystem can be restored if the energy of subsystem increases by increment. In this case, all five subsystems will be changed by according to the intervention rule as follows:

Finally, all five subsystems will be changed by the increments in Equation (2).

2) Similarly, by according to intervention rule, if , then all five subsystems will be changed by increments as follows:

By according to self-protection rule, the worst victim subsystem can be restored if the energy of subsystem decreases by the same size, i.e., by increment. In this case, all five subsystems will be changed by according to the intervention rule as follows:

Finally, all five subsystems will be changed by the increments in Equation (3). □

Corollary 3.1. Suppose that a steady multilateral system which has energy and capability of self-protection is with intervention reaction coefficients and. Then the capability of self-protection can make both subsystems and to be restored at the same time, i.e., the capability of self-protection is better, if and only if.

Proof. It follows from the Theorem 3.1 directly. □

Side effects of medical problems was the question: in the medical process, destroyed the normal balance of a normal system which is not falling-ill system or intervening system. By Theorem 3.1 and Corollary 3.1, it can be seen that a necessary and sufficient condition is if the capability of self-protection of the steady multilateral system is better, i.e., the multilateral system has capability to protect all victims to restore. At this point, the paper advocates the principle to avoid any side effects of treatment.

Treatment principle by using the neighboring relations of steady multilateral systems is “Virtual disease is to fill his mother but real disease is to rush down his son”. In order to show the rationality of the treatment principle, it is needed to prove the following theorems.

Theorem 3.2. Suppose that a steady multilateral system which has energy and capability of self-protection is with intervention reaction coefficients and satisfying. Then the following statements are true.

In the case of virtual disease, if an intervention force on the subsystem of steady multilateral system is implemented such that its energy increases the increment, then the subsystems, and can be restored at the same time, but the subsystems and will increase their energies by the increments

and

respectively.

On the other hand, in the case of real disease, if an intervention force on the subsystem of steady multilateral system is implemented such that its energy decreases, i.e., by the increment , the subsystems, and can also be restored at the same time, and the subsystems and will decrease their energies, i.e., by the increments

and

respectively.

Proof. 1) By 1) of Theorem 3.1, if the energy of subsystemis also restored, then i.e., , or, . In this case, the subsystem is also restored since

But the final increments of the energies of both subsystems and will be changed into increments and, respectively.

2) Similarly, by 2) of Theorem 3.1, if the energy of subsystem is also restored, then i.e., , or, . In this case, the subsystem is also restored since

But the final increments of the energies of subsystems and _{ }will be changed into and .#

Theorem 3.3 For a steady multilateral system which has energy and capability of self-protection, assume intervention reaction coefficients are and which satisfy and where (the following the same) is the solution of. Then the following statements are true.

1) If an intervention force on the subsystem of steady multilateral system is implemented such that its energy has been changed by increment , then the final increment of the energy of the subsystem changed is greater than the final increment of the energy of the subsystem X changed based on the capability of self-protection.

2) If an intervention force on the subsystem X of steady multilateral system is implemented such that its energy has been changed by increment , then the final increment of the energy of the subsystem changed is less than the final increment of the energy of the subsystem changed based on the capability of self-protection.

Proof. Let.

For, derivation, it can be shown that is a decrease function of. We use SAS to solve then the solution . So while. Thus and,

. □

Corollary 3.2. For a steady multilateral system V which has energy and capability of self-protection, intervention reaction coefficients are and which satisfy and. Then the following statements are true.

1) In the case of virtual disease, if an intervention force on the subsystem of steady multilateral system is implemented such that its energy has been changed by increment, then the final increment of the energy of the subsystem changed is less than the final increment of the energy of the subsystem changed based on the capability of self-protection.

2) In the case of real disease, if an intervention force on the subsystem of steady multilateral system V is implemented such that such that its energy has been changed by increment, then the final increment of the energy of the subsystem changed is greater than the final increment of the energy of the subsystem changed based on the capability of self-protection.

Proof. It follows from the Theorem 3.2 directly.

Suppose that only one subsystem is abnormal (or disease ), i.e., its energy is too high or too low. It can be shown by Theorems 3.1 and 3.2 that if intervention reaction coefficients satisfy and, then it is known that if one wants to restore the abnormal subsystem, the one should not intervene subsystem directly. The one should increase the energy of subsystem if the energy of subsystem is too low. It means “Virtual disease is to fill his mother”. And one should decrease the energy of subsystem if the energy of subsystem is too high. It means “Real disease is to rush down his son”.

Otherwise, under the law of self-protection, positive incremental intervention subsystem increases the energy of subsystem but the energies of other subsystems do not change; and negative incremental intervention subsystem decreases the energy of subsystem but the energies of other subsystems do not change.

If, i.e., , then the capability of intervention reaction of the intervening subsystem is said to be normal since in this case the energy for the intervening subsystem can almost transmit to other subsystems which have neighboring relations or alternate relations with the intervening subsystem.

The capability of intervention reaction and the capability of self-protection are different from each other. After intervening, it is said the capability of self-protection of the multilateral system is normal if the final energy does not change rapidly. By using Theorem 3.2, the capability of self-protection can restore the 3 subsystems of all 5 subsystems of under any intervention reaction coefficients. Therefore the better capability of selfprotection should be true for most multilateral systems. By using Theorems 3.1 and 3.2 and Corollary 3.1, however, the capability of intervention reaction can affect the choice of intervention subsystems of.

In fact, by Theorem 3.2, it will be better if we intervene subsystem indirectly while. The intervention method can be to maintain the balance of multilateral systems because only both the disease system and the intervened system are treated by using Theorem 3.2 such that there is not any side effect for all other subsystems. And the intervention method can also be to enhance the capability of intervention reaction because the method of using intervention reaction makes the greater and near to 1. The state is the best state of the steady multilateral system. On the way, it almost have not medical and drug resistance problem since any medicine is possible good for some large.

All in all, the steady multilateral system satisfies the intervention rule and the self-protection rule. It is said healthy while the intervention reaction coefficient satisfies. In logic and practice, it’s reasonable near to 1. In case:, all the energy for intervening subsystem can transmit to other subsystems which have neighboring relations or other subsystems with the intervening subsystem. The healthy condition can be satisfied when for a steady multilateral system since implies . Interestingly, it is the golden number, i.e., in general, the intervention reaction coefficient is nearly to the golden number 0.618 for a healthy body. If this assumptions is set up, then the treatment principle: “Real disease is to rush down his son and virtual disease is to fill his mother” based on “Yin Yang Wu Xing” Theory in TCM, is quite reasonable.

But, by Corollary 3.2, it will even be better if we intervene subsystem itself directly for a bad body in the case that where. It can be explained that if a multilateral system which has a poor capability of intervention reaction, then it is better to intervene the subsystem itself directly than indirectly. The intervention method, however, always destroy the balance of multilateral systems because there exists at least one energy of both the mother and the son of the intervened system changed by Theorem 3.2 such that there is at least one side effects: the mother or the son corresponding to real disease or virtual disease, respectively. And the intervention method also have harmful to the capability of intervention reaction because the method which don’t use the capability of intervention reaction makes the less and near to 0. The state is the worst state of the steady multilateral system. On the way, the medical and drug resistance problem will be occurred since any medicine is possible too little for some small. Therefore the intervention method directly can be used in case but should be used as little as possible.

Suppose that the subsystems and are abnormal (or diseases). In the multilateral system of relations between two non-compatible with the constraints, only two situations may occur:

1) encounters virtual disease, and at the same time, befalls virtual disease, i.e., the energy of is too low and the energy of is also too low. It is because bears. The disease causal is.

2) encounters real disease, and at the same time, befalls real disease, i.e., the energy of is too high and the energy of is also too high. It is because bears. The disease causal is.

It can be shown by Theorem 3.2 that if intervention reaction coefficients satisfy, then the following statements are true.

1) If one wants to treat the abnormal systems and, then for virtual disease, the one should intervene subsystem directly by increasing its energy. It means “virtual disease is to fill his mother” because the disease causal is.

2) If one wants to treat the abnormal systems and, then for real disease, the one should intervene subsystem directly by decreasing its energy. It means “Real disease is to rush down his son” because the disease causal is.

The intervention method can be to maintain the balance of multilateral systems because only two disease systems are treated, by using Theorem 3.2, such that there is not any side effect for all other subsystems. And the intervention method can also be to enhance the capability of intervention reaction because the method of using the capability of intervention reaction makes the greater and near to 1. The state is the best state of the steady multilateral system. On the way, it almost have not medical and drug resistance problem since any medicine is possible good for some large.

In order to use the treatment principle of neighboring relations, similar to TCM, we can assume that real disease and virtual disease have their reasons. Real disease is caused by the born subsystem and virtual disease is caused by the bear subsystem. Although the reason can not be proved easily in mathematics or experiments, the treatment method under the assumption is quite equal to the treatment method in the intervention indirectly.

Treatment principle by using the alternate relations of steady multilateral systems is “Strong inhibition of the same time, support the weak”. In order to show the rationality of the treatment principle, it needed to prove the following theorem.

Theorem 3.4. Suppose that a steady multilateral system which has energy and capability of self-protection is with intervention reaction coefficients and which satisfying. Assume there are two subsystems and of with an alternate relation such that encounters virtual disease, and at the same time, befalls real disease. Then the following statements are true.

If an intervention force on the subsystem of steady multilateral system is implemented such that its energy has been changed by increment, and at the same time, another intervention force on the subsystem of steady multilateral system is also implemented such that its energy has been changed by increment, then all other subsystems:, and can be restored at the same time, and the subsystems and will increase and decrease their energies by the same size but the direction opposite, i.e., by the increments

and

respectively.

Proof. By Theorem 3.1 in 1) and 2), we have

and

Composing these two conclusions, we get

The proof is completed. □

Suppose that the subsystems and are abnormal (or disease). In the multilateral system of relations between two non-compatible with the constraints, only a situation may occur: encounters virtual disease, and at the same time, befalls real disease, i.e., the energy of is too low and the energy of is too high, because it is normal when kills but it is abnormal when doesn’t kill.

It can be shown by Theorem 3.4 that if intervention reaction coefficients satisfy, then one should intervene subsystem directly by increasing its energy, and at the same time, intervene subsystem directly by decreasing its energy if the one wants to treat the abnormal systems and. It means that “Strong inhibition of the same time, support the weak”.

The intervention method can be to maintain the balance of multilateral systems because only two disease systems are treated, by using Theorem 3.4, such that there is not any side effect for all other subsystems. And the intervention method can also be to enhance the capability of intervention reaction because the method of using the capability of intervention reaction makes that the subsystem can kill such that the is greater and near to 1. The state is the best state of the steady multilateral system. On the way, it almost have none medical and drug resistance problem since any medicine is possible good for some large.

The fundamental issues of any complex system are the problems of stability. But for many stable problems, the usual methods in Western science can not be used (see [

For example, it is will known that Western medicine is in the microscopic approach to disease and always make directly medical treatments on disease organs. By Theorems 3.1, 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4 in this paper, it can be found that the method always destroys the original human being’s balance and has none beneficial to human’s immunity. Western medicine can produce pollution to human’s body, having strong side effects. Excessively using medicine can easily paralysis the human’s immunity, which AIDS is a product of Western medicine. Using medicine too little can easily produce the medical and drug resistance problem.

But TCM studies the world in the macro point of view and always makes indirectly medical treatments on disease organs. By Theorems 3.1, 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4 in this paper, it can be found that the method’s target is in order to maintain the original balance of human being and in order to enhance the immunity. TCM believes that each medicine have one-third of drug. She never encourages patients to use medicine in long term. TCM has over 5000-year history. It almost has not side effects or medical and drug resistance problem.

The mainly difference between TCS and Western Science is that Western science only considers Axiom (or Hypothesis) but TCS doesn’t. The key to intelligent control and automation should be to study the issues of nonAxiom (or non-Hypothesis). This paper’s drawbacks are just in order to solve these problems. The ideas are due to TCS.

Problems, Results and Comparisons1) What is “Stable”? Western Science defined it as “A price or rate which changes only slowly, opposite of volatile.” But in TCS, it is specifically defined as that there is at least a causal chain (defined in (1) of Section 2.5) in a system such that the system can be survival. The definition given in TCS, for a relatively stable complex system, is most essential. If there is not the chain or circle, then will be some elements without causes or some elements without results in the system. Thus, this system is to be in the state of finding its results or causes, and there is not any stability to say.

Liao, et al. [

2) What is “complex system”? Western Science defined it as “Consisting of many diverse and autonomous but interrelated and interdependent components or parts linked through many (dense) interconnections. Complex systems cannot be described by a single rule and their characteristics are not reducible to one level of descripon. They exhibit properties that emerge from the interaction of their parts and which cannot be predicted from the properties of the parts”. But in TCS, it is specifically defined as a system which has at least one non-compatibility relation in a logic analysis model of a system— multilateral system [2,15] (Defined in Section 2.4).

It is will known that the body of human is a complex system. But in Western Medicine, the existence of both side effects or medical and drug resistance problems proves it non-reasonable to some extent. But in TCM, there exist a lot of good methods to solve the problems of human body, such as theories of “Wu Yun Liu Qi”(五运六气, environment of energy), “Jing Luo”(经络, meridian/ hannel system),” “Zang Xiang”(藏象 or 脏腑, Zang Fu organ), etc. We [7-12,14-17] want to study the complex system by using these methods in TCS instead of the ones in Western science, such as “emergence”, “control”, “model”, “distribution”, and so on. It is because the methods in Western science only involved the compatibility relations under one Axiom system, and only concern how to attain the energy of complex system through study or observations at the position of standing on our own but do not show how to afford the energy for the complex system through logic or practice.

3) What is “Science”? Western science defined it as “knowledge attained through study or practice” but TCS only considers it specifically and carefully as “knowledge about energy attained and afford”. Only to know how to attain energy at the position of standing on our own but not to know how to afford energy is not a complete “Science”. What can kill the “Science” is need to know and need to protect it as more as possible. One can do by logic or practice but only by observations.

For example [

4) What is “Axiom”? Western Science considers it as “Hypothesis” but TCS considers it specifically and carefully as “Tao(Yin and Yang)”(道(阴和阳)), anything can be decomposed into two parts which have two kinds of opposite relations), or “You Sheng Yu Wu”(有生于无, anything is born by nothing), or “Bu Yan Shi Jiao”(不言施教, teaching cannot be made by suppose).

Lao Tzu, was one of the earliest philosopher in the Chinese history, who describes the marvel of Tao as an evolving force that operates throughout the universe. Tao is the first cause of the universe. Lao Tzu said that Tao is ‘the way’ and he emphasized this in the first verse of his Tao Teh Ching [

Translated as:

“The Tao that can be said is not the everlasting Tao.

If a name can be named, it is not the everlasting name.

That which has no name is the origin of heaven and earth;

That which has a name is the mother of all things”.

(Lao Tzu’s Tao Teh Ching, Verse.1) [

Therefore Tao is always without a name and that it is the origin of heaven and earth. Tao can also be said to be the “Absolute” that it can be said to be the movement and a stillness without a beginning, Yin and Yang (also known as Tai Chi in

The Tai Chi (Ultimate Principle of Existence) involved “The two dynamic powers” (the white space represents the Yang and the black space represents the Yin) exists in equilibrium and from which a coordinated and vigorous force is produced. This classic symbol for Yin and Yang appears like a pair of fish swimming in a circle around

each other; the tail of one is formed from the head of the other. Here, we can see that Yin-Yang are born out of each other and are transformed into each other. Each of the Yin-Yang contains the seed of the other; there is a tiny seed circle of dark Yin contained in the white part of Yang, as there is a seed circle of white Yang contained in the darkness of Yin. Tao is the force, which flows through all lives. Each person is to nurture the breathing or what is also known as the integral life force (“Chi” or “Qi”) that has been given to him/her. Unlike Western thinking, time is not linear but cyclical. And overall, each and every Taoism believer’s goal is to align him(her)self, by having a balance (the perfect sense of balance is embodied in the idea of Yin Yang) or being harmonious with the Tao.

In the universe, there should always be a balance of nature. Yin (female) and Yang (male) are always at work, and there should be a good balance between them; and hence the avoidance of extremes. This is indeed what the concept of TCS, which is anchored in Taoism roots, is summarized as the multilateral systems (Defined in Section 2.4) (see [2,14]).

5) What is “reasoning”? Western Science considers it as the reasoning under one Axiom system such that only compatibility relation reasoning researched on. But TCS mainly researches the reasoning among many Axiom systems in nature (or do not consider any Axiom system or see it nothing, or “You Sheng Yu Wu”(有生于无), anything is born by nothing) and mainly considers the noncompatibility relations between different Axioms. The noncompatibility relations are more important than compatibility relations if they are considered at same time. Lao Tzu reputed the condition of reasoning to be “Bu Zi Sheng”(不自生, not their own definition, then their reasoning and research ).

We have seen simple example of reasoning. If we know: Robins are birds. All birds have wings (Axiom). Then if we ask: Do robins have wings? “Yes”. Some reasoning (albeit very simple) has to go on answer the question. But, in TCS, one believes that Robins which are birds may be not to have wings. The one believes that the Axiom system may be not true because the Axiom is our Hypothesis or observations and there may be other Axiom system in which birds have not wings. The one mainly considers the relationship between the birds and its energies.

In general, any multilateral system (defined in Section 2.4) is a reasoning model in TCS because it is defined by a set, which is independent of the reasoning procedure, and not defined by the reasoning itself. But in Western science, almost all reasoning is defined by itself, for example, by one Axiom system obtained by observations. In other words, it is born by itself.

6) What is “causal model”? Western science defined it as “Estimating approach based on the assumption that future-value of a variable is a mathematical function of the values of other variable(s). Used where sufficient his torical data is available, and the relationship (correlation) between the dependent variable to be forecasted and associated independent variable(s) is well known”. But TCS mainly researches the causal model among many Axiom systems in Nature and mainly considers the causal model of non-compatibility relations which is more important than ones of compatibility relations if they are considered at same time. In other words, TCS mainly considers the causal among three relations, such as “Yang” relation: the neighboring relations, as beneficial, harmony, obedient, loving, etc.; “Yin” relation: alternate relations, as harmful, conflict, ruinous, killing, etc.; as well as a general equivalent category, “Tong Lei”(同类): the compatibility relation but seeing it as an equivalent relation, as similarly, family, brother, under the same Axiom system, etc.

Zhang, et al. [2,8-11] first consider the stable structure of the logic model with causal effects between two noncompatibility relations which is similar to the theory of “Yin Yang Wu Xing” in TCS. The concept of causal model has been further explained and extended to construct the generalized causal model—multilateral system (Defined in Section 2.4) in this paper. There exists none the idea in Western science.

7) What is “symmetry”? The outstanding mathematician Hermann Weil highly evaluated the role of symmetry in modern science: “Symmetry, as though is wide or narrow we did not perceive this word, there is the idea, with the help of which a man attempted to explain and to create the order, beauty and perfection”. But in TCS, it is simply defined as the neighboring relations (Defined in Section 2.2).

Global sensitivity analysis in symmetry has been first considered in [

8) What is “orthogonal”? Western science defined it as “In geometry, orthogonal means ‘involving right angles’ (from Greek ortho, meaning right, and gon meaning angled). The term has been extended to general use, meaning the characteristic of being independent (relative to something else). It also can mean: non-redundant, nonoverlapping, or irrelevant. In computer terminology, something—such as a programming language or a data object—is orthogonal if it can be used without consideration as to how its use will affect something else”. But in TCS, it is simply defined as the alternate relations (Defined in Section 2.2).

Global sensitivity analysis in orthogonality has been also first considered in [

Western science studied the global sensitivity analysis in orthogonality by using the methods of Monte Carlo and quasi-Monte Carlo algorithms. Wang et al. [

Construction of orthogonal arrays in Western science is always to use the theory of group. But in TCS, the images concept of Lao Tzu is considered as the origin or beginning of anything. Similarly to the images of Tao, many new concepts have been found, such as, matrix images [

9) What is “Intelligent”? Western science defined it as “Intelligence is the system’s level of performance in reaching its objectives”. But in TCS, it is simply defined as the system’s level of performance in order to know the laws or images of the Tao.

In TCS, the intelligent knowledge mainly is due to the Tao Teh Ching and the “Yi Jing”. The Tao Teh Ching is a logic model and the “Yi Jing” is a reasoning model. Zhang [

10) What is “Control”? Western science defined it as “Management process in which the (1) actual performance is compared with planned performance, (2) difference between the two is measured, (3) causes contributing to the difference are identified, and (4) corrective action is taken to eliminate or minimize the difference”. But in TCS, it is simply defined as the intervention (making a treatment) on a complex system (Defined in Section 3.2).

In Chinese, the control concept is mainly due to the theory of “Yin Yang Wu Xing”, which doesn’t consider the function model to control but control by using five indexes:

Wood (), fire, earth, metal and water, where there exist two kinds of opposite non-compatibility relations among the five subsets. Zhang, et al. [

11) What is “Automation”? The dictionary defines automation as “the technique of making an apparatus, a process, or a system operate automatically.” But in TCS, it is specifically and carefully defined that one can establish a system such that it can run naturally only by using the capability of self-protection of the system (Defined in Section 3.3), i.e., it is wu wei er wu bu wei (无为而无不为)-by doing nothing, everything is done.

In Chinese, the automation concept is mainly due to the Taoism believer’s idea. The idea is to set a causal circle (circle of Tao) on a system, i.e.wood) fireearthmetal waterwood···where there exist two kinds of opposite non-compatibility relations among the five subsets. Any nature system of objects has its energy and its capability of self-protection. If one wants to obtain the system’s energy, the system’s capability of self-protection will work. If the one can establish a causal circle above on the system such that it can run naturally only by using the nature force of a causal circle or the capability of self-protection, the one may be doing nothing but everything is done. The method is called “Tao Fa Zi Ran”(道法自然, imitation of Nature).

In order to implement above idea, we must test first the structure of computer’s language whether it satisfies the circle’s conditions or not and make a causal circle above. Zhang et al. [

This work shows how to treat the diseases of a steady multilateral system and three methods are presented.

If only one subsystem falls ill, mainly the treatment method should be to intervene it indirectly for case: the capability coefficient of intervention reaction, according to the treatment principle of “Real disease is to rush down his son but virtual disease is to fill his mother”. The intervention method directly can be used in case but should be used as little as possible.

If two subsystems with the neighboring relation encounter sick, the treatment method should be intervene them directly also according to the treatment principle of “Real disease is to rush down his son but virtual disease is to fill his mother”.

If two subsystems with the alternate relation encounter sick, the treatment method should be intervene them directly also according to the treatment principle of “Strong inhibition of the same time, support the weak”.

Other properties of steady multilateral systems, such as balanced, orderly nature, and so on, will be discussed in the next articles.
