Disturbances in living organisms and the Enti-approach
How can a disturbance in a living organism be understood?
Let’s take a classic example of such a disturbance: the “allergy”.
“Allergy” is defined as a too strong reaction of an organism to a circumstance. For example a chemical substance.
That substance is then labelled “allergen”.
We can understand this allergic reaction in a number of ways.
1°/ The basic, mechanistic viewpoint
In the basic, analytical approach, the allergen (chemical substance) makes the reaction happen. In other words: the allergen (now called the cause) causes the reaction of the organism (reaction is now called the consequence or the result). In simple terms: you expose an organism to an allergen and you provoke the reaction.
2°/ Broader viewpoint
Take 5 organisms and expose them to one type of allergen.
When the organisms react, no organism will react in exactly the same way. Each one of the 5 organisms will react in a slightly different way.
The causal relationship is, however, not 100% specific, precisely due to that difference in reaction.
3°/ Understood in the broadest terms
Let’s expose a very large number of organisms to one type of allergen. We notice that most react, but not all of them.
The conclusion must be that a reaction in itself is not absolutely necessary.
The notion that “the allergen is the cause of the reaction” is not valid. Not valid anymore.
Even the opposite becomes obvious. It clearly depends on the organism if it reacts. Or if it does not react. As such, the allergen is no longer what determines the reactive and disturbed state of the organism.
The disturbance becomes, very simply, an action. And an action of the organism itself. This action then partly describes the dynamism of the organism, and, as such, provides information on how the organism functions. The “reaction” becomes action and becomes a characteristic of the organism itself.
On this characteristic, on this information, we base the “Enti-approach”.
We neutralise this disturbance-characteristic through ‘Enti-informatisation’.
