Dowling J.P. (2022)
Published by IPSA Global Ltd

Steve and Pauline Richards' psychodynamic model, as Superpostioned across the biopsychsocial continuum, is used to identify the genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, translatomic and intracellular state-based mechanics which correspond to the activity of instincts (Pankseppian and Meta) and complexes.

2022 (May): Editor of Steve and Pauline Richards' IPSA Collected Works Volume 5: Discourses on Psychodynamics (Volume 1).

2022 (June): Published listing in Bulletin of the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society, in the journal Neuropsychoanalysis:
Statement on the biophysical variables with superpositioned information to the psyche, with particular attention drawn to genomic open-reading frames (genes, and non-coding sequences), the epigenome, transcriptome and proteome - capable of being analysed through next-generation-sequencing "omics"-based data.

2022 (November): Published listing in Bulletin of the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society, in the journal Neuropsychoanalysis:
Some of the core thesis of Logos Vitae is explained, wherein the superpositioning of psychodynamic information (as per Steve and Pauline Richards' Psycho-Systems Analysis) within the soma is modelled as a landscape of "Competitive Omics States"; the intracellular dynamic state of genomic, epigenomic, transcriptomic and proteomic variables "compete" with one another based on innate molecular kinetics towards set-points of homeostasis. The Competitive Omics State model is then syncretised with the ORCH-OR hypothesis of Sir Roger Penrose and Prof. Stuart Hameroff to create a working model of the molecular kinetics of a potential quantum mechanical aspect to psychodynamics (Quantum Psychodynamics coined by Steve and Pauline Richards) - specifically, with consistency with Steve and Pauline Richards' model of Janetian dissociation of ego consciousness and Informational Monism. Finally, the molecular state-based dynamics of the activity of complexes are stated to be an informational foci subject to the Laws of Preservation described by Charles Darwin.

2023: MIAPC UK (Accred) Registration at the International Association of Psychology and Counselling (UK).

2023 - present: Active "Participant" in the Independent Practitioners Network (IPN).

2023 (April): Published listing in Bulletin of the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society, in the journal Neuropsychoanalysis:
The "Competitive Omics State" model of molecular psychodynamics is used within the context of Steve and Pauline Richards' models of Informational Monism, Superpositioning Theory and consciousness to highlight that an organism's phenotype is Superpositioned at every biological, psychological and social representation downstream to the transcriptional activity of the genome. Natural Selection operates at all of these levels, as informational foci; thus, neurosis (modelled as a Competing Omics States corresponding through superpositioning to instincts and complexes) is a real-time representation of the Darwinian "struggle for existence" of the varying potential "states" an organism could be.

2023 (October): Published listing in Bulletin of the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society, in the journal Neuropsychoanalysis:
Taking any neuron involved in psychodynamics, we can model the genome as the master state-regulator. So too, can we model all non-genomic GRN nodes as potential secondary state-regulators. Recent computational biology work has shown that memory could feasibly be stored within a GRN structure. That is, upon perturbating the GRN, the system remembers the change, and maintains the memory across time. Inspired by this, the Manchester Jungian Neuropsychoanalysis Group are currently generating a comprehensive “mind-body loop” framework (ref. Prof. Ernest Rossi), which incorporates the known dynamics of complexes and prediction errors; the former are autonomous memory, homeostatic unto themselves, and capable of auto-updating in real-time based on the activity of the ego (ref. Steve and Pauline Richards). Thus, to map their activity to molecular networks which fulfil these criteria is an exciting frontier.

2024 (March): Published listing in Bulletin of the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society, in the journal Neuropsychoanalysis:
A comprehensive “mind-gene loop” framework (borrowing a phrase from Prof. Ernest Rossi) is under active construction by James P Dowling for describing the molecular biochemistry by which it is possible for information to move between psychodynamic and biophysical representations, in states of both biopsychosocial homeostasis and maladaptation. Particular focus is being paid to the regulation of genomic open-reading frame expression (including novel non-coding RNA pathways), both during transcription and all major mechanisms of post-transcriptional control (e.g. lifespan of RNA and translation initiation). The meta-framework is the Psycho-Systems Continuum of Steven and Pauline Richards, with its syncretism with the work of the late Prof. Ernest Rossi, to provide a comprehensive information-based array of transduction pathways, with three core foci: the psychodynamic “state” (including both ego and non-ego dynamics); the intracellular omics “state” (transcriptome and proteome, primarily); and the genomic “state” (genome-environment dialectic).
