Thought I would take a moment to briefly review how far we have come.
First, we looked at a variety of tetrads.
Here is James Moffett’s Universe of Discourse:
We concluded that human systems are hexads and we arrived at the Six Hat, Six Coat Framework:
Next, we will look at the Entities, Relationships, Attributes and Constraints within the framework.
Defining the Six Hat, Six Coat Entities has been very much like defining a periodic table. I have had to suspend my own biases many times to align myself with the concepts the Cartesian product were revealing to me.
I have stated that the relationships between entities are one to many left to right and one to many top to bottom. John Zachman believes the structure is like a table with movable columns. I do not. I believe the framework and the entities are fixed in a hierarchy implicitly. However, explicit relationships can exist contrary to this fundamental structure.
We have also explored the attributes for each of the entities and their constraints/freedoms. I provided an alternate set of names: Morality (cause), Compatibility (observer), Reliability (energy), Fidelity (matter), Accessibility (space) and Availability (time).
I will be coming back to the Structured Thinking Language and experiment further.
