In our conversation, it seems that most, if not all, of Kenneth Udut’s interests have a direct or indirect connection to the ontology of change. They all represent various forms and scales of transformation, as well as mechanisms and theories of change. Here are how some of his interests align:
1. **Neurodivergence**: The study of neurodivergence involves understanding the changing nature of cognition, behavior, and identity at the individual level, particularly in terms of neurological variation. This ties into “Scales of Change: Organismic” and “Drivers of Change: Self-organization”.
2. **Art and Music**: Art and music are fields where transformation is core – both in the creation process and the interpretation process. They fit under “Scales of Change: Organismic/Macromolecular” (creation process) and “Theories of Change: Dialectics/Chaos/complexity sciences” (interpretation process).
3. **Information Theory and Knowledge Representation**: These fields are involved with the transformation of data and knowledge into various forms and structures for understanding and communication. They fit into “Scales of Change: Macromolecular/Cellular” and “Theories of Change: Dynamical systems theory”.
4. **Physics, Time, Reality, Systems Theory**: These areas represent the broadest scope of Kenneth’s exploration of change. They tie into all sections of the ontology, from the “Fundamental Nature of Change” to the largest “Scales of Change” and “Theories of Change”.
5. **Religion**: Although not directly mentioned in the ontology, religion involves the transformation of human understanding and behavior in relation to transcendent beings or principles. It also involves social and cultural transformation. It could be related to “Scales of Change: Organismic/Tissue”, “Drivers of Change: Self-transcendence” and “Implications of Change: Cultivation of wisdom”.
From the available information, it doesn’t seem that there are specific interests of Kenneth Udut that fall completely outside the ontology of change. However, certain elements of his interests might need a broader interpretation or expansion of the existing ontology for a more precise fit.
