The realm of matter is a conserved, asymmetric, local form of the "ideal" global realm of light and perfect symmetry. It is due to its asymmetric character, expressed as charge and information, and its entropic drives, both positive and negative, that this alternative form of reality has the potential not just for conservation, but for change, growth, and evolution, even bringing forth life from inanimate atoms. Life evolves to self-knowledge, explores the Cosmos and new modes of creativity, producing new forms of beauty. The four principles of the "Tetrahedron Model" (conservation of energy, entropy, conservation of symmetry, causality) are as much "spiritual" principles of "divine law" as they are "scientific" principles of "natural law". This is another example of the convergence of physical scientific thought and metaphysical, spiritual, or religious thought, of the merging of rational and intuitive world views. The "Tetrahedron Model" represents a fundamental example and iteration of a 4x3 algorithmic hierarchy of fractal models, developed in the context and format of "General Systems". "General Systems" is a synthetic conceptual science which excels at bridging apparently disparate disciplines and world views. I will consider each of the 4 principles in turn.
