Academic Articles

Dr. Walsdorf has written a set of significant papers on important topics. They can also be found on

The first article brings forward a broad and  holistic cosmological model, named The Four Element Holistic Model:

 An Elegant Universe: Appreciating the Holistic Pattern that Unifies the Cosmos

The summary of the article found on is as follows:

Here, a model is presented that hypothesizes that there are sets of four interlocking elemental components existing at the foundation of the cosmos’ many levels. These would include common foursomes like the photon-electron-proton-neutron, the four forces of physics, and the four states of matter. These foursomes, this model suggests, are the expressions of a cosmic pattern of four principles – “cardinal ones” – that are needed to create a physical universe.

Walsdorf’s holistic model offers a counter-narrative to the many complex models that have previously sought to unify the cosmos. It builds upon physics’ work with holograms. Holograms show how a singular pattern can repeat on smaller and smaller parts of a whole. Walsdorf presents evidence for the presence in the cosmos of a singular pattern consisting of four base principles. As it acts in a holistic way, this singular universe-spanning pattern is proposed to unify the whole of the cosmos. Walsdorf uses the fire, air, water and earth noted by pre-modern scientists to create a set of four categories into which each level’s elemental components fit. Furthermore, it is suggested that the world is intelligible to us only because we have this same pattern of principles acting in us – and balanced in exceedingly elegant ways in our human condition.

A second paper speaks more to those in the musculoskeletal field. It is a concise rendering of  Dr. Walsdorf’s Holistic Anatomy and Biomechanics Model

 A New Holistic Model of the Human Body and its Biomechanics

The summary of the article found on is as follows:

 Walsdorf tells us that up until relatively recent times, the natural scientists and health practitioners of each generation believed that nature – our human body included – showed them important truths of the cosmos. In this paper Walsdorf investigates what happens when we look at our human body’s anatomy and its biomechanics in a way that works with that earlier, natural science ideal.

His paper suggests that what has been missing in the whole of human body modelling is one that goes beyond a set of purely mechanistic principles like a principle of flexion and its polar opposite, extension. Walsdorf introduces a model that gives a new context to these kinetic chain principles-as well as the principles that frame our body’s anatomy. This model, he tells us, identifies a set of four principles that are part of a “holistic pattern” playing out in our human body.   

In homage to earlier natural scientists, Walsdorf uses their four terms in his naming of a set of primary anatomy-framing and biomechanical principles, the fire, air, water and earth principles. Walsdorf’s model aims to identify a set of four principles that are part of an easy to comprehend “holistic pattern”-playing out in our human body.
