About David Keirsey

Dr. David Mark Keirsey is a scientist that is interested in how and why the world works.
He is interested in Slow Ideas
The first half of his professional career was as a Computer Scientist, specializing in Artificial Intelligence. Notably, he was part of a team who created the software for the first operation of an autonomous cross-country robotic vehicle. In the current latter part of his career, he has broaden his interest to include all of science, mathematics, computation, and the history and future of the world.

His plan is to further explicate his father's work on Keirsey Temperament Theory.

Moreover he intends to develop his own work on Comparative Science and Relational Complexity.  A way of accomplishing these goals is through evolving ebooks through websites (e.g., http://edgeoforder.org, http://davidkeirsey.org ) and short articles. Two ebooks are being built and evolving are called Mathematics Itself and Existence Itself. His father's work on Human Temperament is already international bestselling, but his methodology of system analysis and synthesis has wide application.

Using systematic analysis of phenomena across levels of complexity of existence enables a clearer understanding of the underlying structure and evolutionary process of the universe. The concept of major levels of complexity provides a framework for explaining the interaction between two adjoining levels of major complexity. This interaction is a form of information feedback. This feedback is analogous to biological evolution but appears in simpler levels of complexity that do not involve life. In addition, at higher levels of complexity, the feedback is at multiple levels thus adding to the confusion of the evolutionary mechanisms and function of life. The precise but abstract metaphorical concepts of birth, growth, equilibrium, decay, and death are shown to be fundamental processes that necessary at all levels of increasing complexity. By comparing and contrasting the levels of material and functional complexity using the rigorous methods of Relational Science and Comparative Complexity, similar to a combination of two different methodologies introduced and used by Robert Rosen and Dr. David West Keirsey, we can understand the structure and process of existence. The word involution, redefined and refined, is used to represent the process and structure of existence which creates this increasing material complexity. The word envolution, created and defined, is used to represent the process and structure of this increasing functional complexity. A rigorous semantic analysis and synthesis, Hegelian and number theoretic in nature, combined with disciplined abstract mathematical methodology similar to category theory will serve as foundation for the discovery and fabrication of useful scientific models.
