Computers use formulas known as algorithms that dictate mathematically how changes are being created in a set of inputs. A researcher converts data from an experiment into mathematical equations or algorithms that are repeated or iterated many, many times by a computer. The logic language in constructing such a formula is, “if this, then :…

A pandemic can be characterized technically as a cascade. One event triggers two events and they in turn trigger four and so on to create a cascade. In biology the cascade effect is a fundamental life strategy for many opportunistic organisms like viruses. However, social scientists point out that the lingering effects of a cascading…

An algorithm is a mathematical process that creates a looping train of steps that are required to be followed one after another until the loop is complete. There are many forms of algorithms that are used by computers to solve problems. Many are known as divide and conquer formulas used to break codes or find…

In the psyche the force of willingness to surrender into the other is built on the ability to trust that the other person will not attack me if I make myself vulnerable. To trust or mistrust another person is a deep seated feeling that comes from the integration of sensory experiences with cognitive behaviors. If…

Human neurological patterns represent a cascading hierarchy of organ responses to sensory stimuli that come from the environment. Sensory inputs through the sense organs impact the nervous system directly. The direct nerve pulses then cause secretions of hormones into the blood as secondary responses to light, sound, smell and movement. In the brain the pituitary…
