    Introduction: Origins
    Nursing science does not develop in a vacuum (Rogers. 1970). Rather, nursing science's origins are woven into the origins of out universe. Science has consistently shown that the the universe evolves through self organization. Atoms, stars and galaxies self-assembled out of the fundamental particles produced by the Big Bang. The Big Bang theory is an effort to explain what happened at the very beginning of our universe. Discoveries in astronomy and physics have consistently shown that our universe did in fact have a beginning. Prior to that moment there was nothing; during and after that moment there was something: our universe.
    ...
    infinitesimally small, infinitely[[#|infinitely]] hot, infinitely
    After its initial appearance, the universe apparently inflated (the "Big Bang"), expanded and cooled, going from very, very small and very, very hot, to the size and temperature of our current universe. In first-generation stars, heavier elements like carbon, nitrogen and oxygen were formed. Aging first-generation stars then expelled them out into space – we, who consist of these elements, are thus literally born from stardust. The heaviest elements were born in the explosions of supernovae. The forces of gravity subsequently allowed for the formation of newer stars and of planets. Finally, in the process of biological evolution from bacteria-like tiny cells (the last universal common ancestor) to all life on earth, including us humans, complex life forms arose from simpler ones.
    Essential to the spontaneous origin of life was the availability of organic molecules as building blocks. The famous "prebiotic soup" experiment by Stanley Miller (Miller 1953, Miller-Urey experiment) had shown that amino acids, the building blocks of proteins, arose among other small organic molecules spontaneously in the lab by sparking a mixture of methane, hydrogen, ammonia and water. These conditions were assumed to simulate those on the primitive earth.It is now widely agreed that at the origin of life there was not the current DNA/(RNA)/protein system for gene information on one hand and catalysis, regulation, and structural function on the other. It would beg the question, what came first, protein or DNA? Protein catalysis without gene information, which allows it to be maintained and propagated, is not sufficient in the long term, and DNA gene information without catalysis, necessary for the function of life, would be useless as well.

    1.1 Introduction
    In Rosemarie Parse's (1994) tribute Martha Rogers in Nursing Science Quarterly, she wrote that although Martha moved on to another realm of the universe "her voice will not be silenced" (p.47). Her vision of nursing "energized the lives of nurses worldwide" and her "voice will echo through the ages" (p. 47). Nursing has endured in a significant way through her contributions to the discipline as she transformed nursing from a "prescience to a science" (Phillips, 1994, p. vi). This wiki-text is designed to assure that Martha Rogers' voice continues to be heard by explicating the substance of her voice, message and vision. Rogers continues to have an immeasurable impact on the development of nursing as a scientific discipline. Dr. Martha Rogers, one of the most revered of 20th century nursing educators, who in 1954 became Professor and Head of the Division of Nursing at New York University and provided a generation of doctoral nursing candidates with a theoretical foundation for their profession.

    Dossey (1999) used the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator based on Jung's descriptions of personality to analyze Nigthingale's letters, notes, and published works and discovered she was a INTJ (Introversion-Intuition-Thinking-Judging) personality type which is best described as being "original, visionary, private, independent, logical, critical, theoretical, systems-minded, firm, and demanding" (p. 427). In the many descriptions of Rogers personality, she most certainly manifested the many of the same personality characteristics as Nightingale. Numerous personal accounts of Rogers' personality have described her as being stimulating, challenging, idealistic, visionary, independent, family orientated, humorous, academic, blunt, frank, hospitable, provocative, brilliant, radiant, feisty, willful, gentle, warm, vibrant, intellectual, philosophical, outspoken, radical, charismatic, creative, courageous, prophetic, avant garde, outrageous, hard working, controversial, compassionate, generous, energetic, ethical, and yes, even as crazy as a bedbug (Alligood, 1979; Butcher, 1999; Cheema, 1994; Hektor, 1989; King, 1994; Malinski, 1994; Mathwig, 1994; Parse, 1989; Pepper, 1989; Phillips, 1994).

    Martha E. Rogers’ first sentence in the Forward in her landmark book An Introduction to the Theoretical Basis of Nursing opened with the declaration “People are at the center of nursings' purpose” (Rogers, 1970, p. vii). Epilogue ended with the lines “New horizons call. Nursing has moved into a new era of fulfilling human need” (p. 139). In between these beginning and ending lines resides a revolutionary synthesis of knowledge, breathing taking in its scope, that launched a unique scientific and humanistic vision specific to nursing. Her ground breaking scientific system, the science of unitary human beings, unleashed a new unitary vision of holism consummate with contemporary science.

    More than 15 years ago Violet Malinski rightly noted that “perhaps the greatest stumbling block for those interested in Rogerian nursing science is the fact that Rogers last book was published over 20 years ago” (p. 204). Rogers never wrote a second edition to An Introduction to the Theoretical Basis of Nursing, and she often stated, “ninety percent of what is written in that book needs to be torn out.” While there are a number of excellent book chapters written in secondary sources, it has now been over 35 years without a “definitive source,” or a comprehensive contemporary explication of the Rogerian cosmology, philosophy, postulates, principles, theories, research methods and instruments, and practice methods. Without a definitive text or source, those seeking to learn more about the science of unitary human beings, must search through this dizzying kaleidoscope of literature, much of which is difficult to access or out of date.
    The time has come to ignite a new generation of Rogerian scholars, the Net-generation. This wiki site is a quantum leap in the evolution of Rogerian science. Wikis are powerful tools, drawing people together in a way that enhances connectedness, collaboration, and knowledge construction. Not only can a community of Rogerian scholars come together in mutual process and simultaneously co-create a comprehensive explication of the science of unitary human beings, but also anyone with a computer and a web-browser can access the knowledge and content on this site. Unlike printed text, the content on this site can be continually updated, won’t go out of print, and there is no page limitation restricting the amount or depth of explanations. Wikis allow for the incremental development of content as each participant, collaborator, shareholder, or partner contributes to this document. The content becomes ever changing and emergent as it evolves through the multiple edits, additions, deletions, and revisions.

    This wiki site was initiated on 2.2.08 and the core chapter content is under development. Content and proposed outlines are already posted on most of the pages.
    0.2 Purpose:
    ...
    research, practice, education,[[#|education]], and administration.
    0.3 Authorship:
    The strength of a wiki is in the ability of every member of the community to contribute, be it with providing content, expanding understanding, raising questions, offering insight, and providing answers. Many wikis are completely open for anyone to edit and have no authorship. A wiki intended as a open forum, for example, might be free-form to allow for emergent structure. However, most wikis whose ultimate aim is to be a source of accurate information have an organizational vision, an "organizer" or primary author. Often this is the person who initiated the wiki, its "organizer," or more delicately, its primary Editor.The primary Editor "organizer" of this wiki will be Howard K. Butcher, RN; PhD, APRN-BC, who created this site. All contributors to the content of this wiki will be listed as Co-editors.

    a BS degree[[#|degree]] in Biology
    Sure enough, when classes started, one of the required course that fall was on nursing theory development. We all were assigned to read not only Rogers, but Orem King, and Roy's original texts. I was assigned to present an overview of King's Theory of Goal Attainment in 11 minutes. Nora Parker (who became my thesis chair) and Kay Arpin (a committee member) co-taught the course and timed to make sure we did not go a second over the 11 minutes. What was thrilling, was the student who presented Rogers. That was the moment I was hooked and wanted to learn more about the Science of Unitary Man, as it was titled at the time. As I started to working on my thesis topic, I decided that I wanted to use her model as the conceptual framework. No student in the program before me, that I am aware of, had used a nursing conceptual framework in their thesis. In fact, we were explicitly told that we needed to use a "mid-level theory" like the health belief model, Lazarus, or Moos stress and coping models. But, from the reading I was doing, I became convinced that to develop nursing knowledge, then out research had to be grounded in our our unique theoretical models. I recall having intense discussions with Dr, Parker, Dr. Arpin, as well as other faculty members, debating whether or not we should be relying borrowed theories if we were to build nursing science. I suppose I was a bit of a odd student in the sense I never just accepted what I was being told. Rather, I was off buying books on nursing theory by Fawcett, Chinn and Kramer, Meleis, and Barnum Stevens (all who published their first books on theory development while I was in the Masters program), taking them back to the faculty and saying "see, look at this, this is what we need to be reading, this is what should be guiding our research."
