Wave-Particle Duality and Quantity-Quality Complementarity in Natural and Human Sciences: Implications for Credition Research

Sungchul Ji

Abstract As predicted by the American chemist, logician, and philosopher Charles Sander Peirce (1839-1914), there appears to be a set of simple concepts that applies to every subject. The Golden Ratio and the Fibonacci series that appear in systems ranging from atoms to DNA, human anatomy, architecture, arts, and the cosmos are well-known examples. During the past 6 years, two additional principles have been recognized and characterized that apply to many organized processes, (i) the Planckian distribution equation (PDE) and (ii) the irreducible triadic relation (ITR) first articulated by Peirce and found to be related to the concept of the category in mathematics. PDE and ITR, being universal principles, may apply to the process of believing in the form of the ‘emotion-cognition-credition’ (ECC) triad which may be irreducible in characterizing and understanding any human goal-directed actions including believing.
