TIC @ Mile High

Thank you, Dr. Daniel Knowles, for posting a video of the philosophy panel from Mile High 4. The panel took place in Westminster, Colorado in August of 2016.

The Institute Chiropractic (TIC) organized the panel. This included Dr. Simon Senzon and three members of TIC: Dr. Barry Hobbs, Dr. Jack Bourla, and Dr. Phil McMaster, as well as Dr. Joel Kinch as the MC (another member of TIC).

Some Questions for the Ages

We decided to use three short videos from The Institute Chiropractic to inspire discussion. The topics ranged from B.J. Palmer’s thots about Innate Intelligence, Educated Intelligence, and Function, to various types of Vertebral Subluxation, and ultimately Universal Intelligence. The videos were just a starting point.

The discussions ranged from the complexities of Innate Intelligence to the interesting life of D.D. Palmer. By watching the discussion, you may learn some new facts. You will certainly discover what types of interactions await at the next Mile High and on the discussion forums of TIC.

  1. “organicism… allows relatively more independence of the parts from the whole, despite the whole being more than the sum of the parts, and/or the whole exerting some control on the behavior of the parts.” ~ Wikipedia

    How is it possible that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts (e.g. the human body), but the sum of wholes (e.g. people together in community) is not greater than the sum of the parts?

    This “independence of the parts from the whole, despite the whole being more than the sum of the parts” feels a bit like swiss cheese in that it has a solid mass, can be used for material and day-to-day use, but has holes in it. Specifically, holes around what makes the whole greater than the sum of the parts.

  2. Hi Aryn,
    Interesting points. Great to hear from you. You are talking about two different zones of “wholes.” The biological whole and the social whole. In terms of the biological whole, complex systems are influenced from the parts and the whole. That is what makes them complex! 🙂 In terms of social systems, that is a totally different question and inquiry. There is no central organizing wholeness to it like the CNS. So we can’t compare them so easily.
    All my best,
