The Benefits of Orbits-Gravity Theory                                   


As it turns out, the common denominator and ‘corner stone’ that unifies the hard sciences is none other than the orbits-gravity model. The model is useful in encapsulating and hypothesizing phenomena in biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy, and quantum physics.


By demonstrating that psychology and its treatment can be framed within an orbits-gravity model, we not only unify the split between behavioral, cognitive, and psychodynamic modalities, we indicate that psychological phenomena is equivalent and parallel to phenomena that occur within the ‘hard sciences.’ 


As it turns out, the advantages of this model are significant.  The orbits-gravity model clarifies what many of us have intuitively known - but have never been able present in words or images. The following are the advantages of framing psychology within an orbits-gravity model:


a) First and foremost it allows us to conceptualize a broad range of theoretical approaches under  a single unified umbrella theory. As such it allows us to take the current split between behavioral, cognitive, and psychodynamic aspects and identify the common denominator that conceptually unites them.


b) All the reputable ‘hard’ sciences (astronomy, biology, chemistry, quantum physics, etc.) are known to be converging toward a ‘unified field theory.’  The foundation of this convergence is based on the fact that each of these sciences is expressed through an orbits-gravity dynamic. The addition of psychology to this ‘members only club’ would indicate a tangible bridge and overlap with the hard sciences. This would end the field’s current second class status as a ‘pseudo-science’ and advance its standing as a viable and relavent scientific endeavor.



c) When trying to explain deep concepts, psychological definitions tend to be ‘abstract and complicated.’ However there is a saying that, “a picture is worth a 1000 words.” The orbits-gravity model offers an illustrated diagram to convey ideas what words alone can not fully express. As such the diagram of orbits-gravity offers a non-linear model to show a depth of understanding that current linear (step-by-step) theories can not achieve.


d) The model provides a concise understanding of the ‘process of change.’  Until now, the idea of “change” depended on one’s primary orientation – whether behavioral, cognitive, or psychodynamic. While initially this may not seem problematic, this splintered view of what and how ‘change’ is achieved ‘wreaks havoc’ in day-to-day treatment settings where clinicians attempt to accomplish similar goals with conflicting or diverging agendas.


e) The model not only provides a better understanding of the process of change, it allows the clinician to scientifically conceptualize a process of “spontaneous and exponential change.” The model allows us to move beyond the expectation of gradual and ‘step-by-step’ progress to a model that scientifically supports the potential for ‘quantum change.’


f ) In addition, the ability to promote a unified model allows us to develop a unified language in which to discuss theory and treatment.  EPK Revised: 3-26-12
