You have the right to your own mental order. You need not be ashamed of anything you think or any way you think.
Performing, advocating or threatening harm to others are the only crimes.
Harm is deliberate inequality.
In the last few days I became strongly concerned about a political issue. I cared so strongly about that issue that I contacted the leaders of Canada’s federal political parties, including the Canadian Prime Minister and my provincial political parties, including the Premier of my province. I cared so much about this issue I revealed personal information regarding something that is not understood by society, those entrusted with its care or the leaders I contacted.
There is a large community that does understand what I revealed. I spoke out to protect them. I spoke out for a group that was executed by the Nazis to no one’s protest. No movies are made about their disappearance. They were among the first to die.
I want the rights of these people protected by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms–the Canadian Constitution. Nothing less.
I don’t think there is a leader among us up to it.
We have to help ourselves.
I take comfort in the words of Aristotle: “Evil destroys even itself” and “All virtue is summed up in dealing justly.”
In a Forum interview by Michael Krasny of NPR with Futurist Paul Saffo brought to my attention in a blog by Tim Brown of IDEO, Paul quotes Mark Twain who said, “History does not repeat itself, but sometimes it rhymes.”
My work on the Czerepak Framework is an effort to look back as far as possible to find the rhymes of the history of systems and out of it has come the following:
Freedom and Fiat
Future and Flow
Function and Form
Fruition and Fulfillment
I have adopted the above process for my company, Cognitary, Inc., and call it “Cognitary Stratus”. It is both a methodology and, when extended to additional dimensions, a framework for designing a system.
My usage of the root “verto” with the prefixes “tri-“, “di-“, “uni-” and “con-” are intended to create new terms to deal with a four dimensional perspective (not three) of systems. The eight sub-forms of thinking correspond to the eight interrogatives:
These rhymes and sub-rhymes are the stratus of all systems and all systems design. Together they are the basis of Cognitary Stratus.
We have lived in “exponential times” since the big bang (if there was one)
