This article correlates all the deficiencies made by LatCrit theory and similar antecedent movements to the pseudo-scientific nature of the justice system. Evaluation of pseudo-scientific characteristics of the justice system is presented to illustrate how existing knowledge processes of this system perpetuate patterns of subordination. The pseudo-scientific nature of the system promotes complexity which is a form of high entropy that obstructs the development of knowledge processes which promote substantive security. A knowledge process traditionally used in the sciences with success is proposed with novel paths towards transforming the nature of the justice system. The proposed paths aspires to organize, clean and screen repetitive, accumulative and artificial norms that affect the efficiency of knowledge processes through qualitative and quantitative methods for the visualization and analysis of data that leads to universal justice patterns. The method proposed is open, interdisciplinary, multidimensional, and universal borrowing from the periodic table of the elements, and the theories of chaos-complexity, narrative content analysis, social network analysis and fractals.
