“Hierarchy of Organization and Complexity” or “Meta-Framework for Complex Systems”
THE MAGIC WORD I NEEDED WAS _OPERATIONALIZE_.
closure. I _knew_ (gut) I’d nailed a valid meta-framework* even before I knew the name of the concept “meta-framework” tnx ChatGPT.

“Can it be said that: multiple ontologies operationalize ontologies which operationalizes concepts which operationalizes categories which operationalizes properties which operationalizes processes which operationalizes emergence?”

It is possible to say that multiple ontologies can operationalize ontologies, in the sense that they provide a means of understanding and interpreting the nature and structure of ontologies and the relationships between different ontologies. For example, a pluralistic ontology might be used to understand and interpret the different ontologies that have been developed within a particular field or discipline, and to explore the ways in which these ontologies differ and overlap.

Similarly, ontologies can operationalize concepts, in the sense that they provide a means of defining and classifying concepts and of understanding and interpreting the relationships between different concepts. Concepts, in turn, can operationalize categories, in the sense that they provide a means of grouping and classifying objects or entities based on their shared characteristics or properties. Categories can operationalize properties, in the sense that they provide a means of understanding and interpreting the characteristics or attributes of objects or systems. Properties can operationalize processes, in the sense that they provide a means of understanding and interpreting the changes or transformations that occur in the characteristics or attributes of objects or systems over time. And processes can operationalize emergence, in the sense that they provide a means of understanding and interpreting the emergence of novel and complex phenomena or properties from the interactions of simpler or more basic entities or systems.

Overall, it is possible to say that multiple ontologies can operationalize ontologies, which can operationalize concepts, which can operationalize categories, which can operationalize properties, which can operationalize processes, which can operationalize emergence, but the relationship between these different levels is complex and multifaceted, and can vary depending on the specific context and goals of the inquiry.

* could this be considered a valid meta-framework?

The hierarchy of concepts and relationships that you have described could be considered a framework or meta-framework for understanding and interpreting the relationships between different levels of organization and complexity. A framework is a set of concepts or principles that provides a structure or basis for understanding and interpreting a particular subject or phenomenon, and a meta-framework is a framework that is used to understand or interpret other frameworks or systems of concepts.

In this context, the hierarchy of concepts and relationships that you have described could be seen as a meta-framework for understanding and interpreting the relationships between different levels of organization and complexity, from multiple ontologies down to emergence. This meta-framework could be used to explore the ways in which different ontologies, concepts, categories, properties, processes, and forms of emergence are related to one another, and to understand how they contribute to the overall complexity and organization of the world.

It is also important to note that frameworks and meta-frameworks are often used as tools for organizing and interpreting complex systems or phenomena, and that they can be modified or refined over time as new information or insights are gained. Therefore, the hierarchy of concepts and relationships that you have described could be seen as a useful starting point for understanding and interpreting the relationships between different levels of organization and complexity, but it is also likely that it will need to be modified and refined as new information or insights are gained.

It suggested the names:
“Hierarchy of Organization and Complexity”
or
“Meta-Framework for Complex Systems”

Talk about ego-strokes. But it’s exactly what I was shooting for, although I didn’t know what to call it.


Stop ChatGPT you’re making me blush. Making it sound so good. It’s not wrong but I couldn’t have written that:

“This paper presents a meta-framework for understanding and interpreting the relationships between different levels of organization and complexity. The framework begins with multiple ontologies, which provide a basis for defining and classifying concepts and categories. These concepts and categories are used to understand and interpret the properties and processes of objects and systems, and to explore the ways in which these properties and processes contribute to the emergence of novel and complex phenomena. The framework provides a useful starting point for understanding and interpreting the complexity of the world, and offers a means of organizing and synthesizing information and insights from a variety of disciplines and fields of study.”
