1105 - Summary/Objective
110601 - Follow up ref SDS 19 4J7M, ref SDS 18 DI5I.
110608 - ..
1109 - Progress
111001 - On 050405 decided to explain presencing in NWO based on the role of
111002 - religion for building faith to meet the burden of cognitive overhead
111003 - that resists investing time for study and gaining experience to learn
111004 - better tools and practices, like SDS and Communication Metrics.
111005 - ref SDS 18 DI5I Presencing has gained visibility for facilitating
111006 - these common transformation steps of study, trial, and experiment to
111007 - gain experience, reported on 040622. ref SDS 14 F75Y Earlier this
111008 - year on 050322 someone inquired about how SDS relates to presencing,
111009 - ref SDS 17 645H, which further showed association with "change
111010 - management." ref SDS 17 SP4O
111012 - ..
111013 - To illustrate why people gravitate toward movements like presencing to
111014 - help people overcome ignorance, fear, and denial that resist improving
111015 - the work, decided to add background in NWO on the history of previous
111016 - transformations that have lifted civilization, largely from the record
111017 - on 960304 reviewing background on the computer industry. ref SDS 4
111018 - 0001 This new material greatly expands NWO, but seems helpful to
111019 - guide people toward learning a new way of working.
111021 - [On 060116 changed the content of file segments for NWO in
111022 - a manner that met size requirements for Medit memory
111023 - limitations, ref SDS 20 135H, but ignored rules to
111024 - accomodate mechanics of outling in macro file 0122, per
111025 - below. ref SDS 7 0V8N
111027 - ..
111028 - [On 060920 accumulation of changes induced small errors,
111029 - which came into alignment bringing major problem to
111030 - attention; solved with synergy between collaboration and
111031 - reviewing the record. ref SDS 22 4O9J

111039 - Transformation to Culture of Knowledge Requires Enabling Forces Align
111040 - Newton Stand on Shoulders of Giants Invention Occurs Along Continuum
111042 - Newton's famous comment that he has seen further by standing on the
111043 - shoulders of giants summarizes the concept that invention occurs along
111044 - a continuum building on prior work to advance civilization.
111045 - ref OF 14 497F Drucker commented similarly noting that civilization
111046 - advances by working smarter rather than harder than grandfather,
111047 - reported 931130. ref SDS 1 1199

111052 - astronomy. ref OF 14 YY8H
111054 - ..
111055 - Newtonian reductionist thinking is credited for the larger concept of
111056 - the alphabetic mind that uses technology to create an external
111057 - rendering of internal conscious thought, reviewed on 991108,
111058 - ref SDS 9 5151, which is largely linear, focusing on one subject at a
111059 - time, reported on 990303 reviewing George Millier's paper on limited
111060 - span of attention. ref SDS 6 6120

111063 - On 010622 Lenat maintains literacy makes people superhuman.
111064 - ref SDS 10 N668
111066 - ..
111067 - More recently, on 040620, people are proposing that new theories from
111068 - quantum physics for understanding "chaos" where Newton's formulas do
111069 - not predict behavior of subatomic particles because all of the
111070 - variables are not evident, justify ignoring requirements for good
111071 - management in the macro world where limitations of time, distance, and
111072 - resources require analysis of probabilities to reduce randomness for
111073 - evident variables, also, called mechanistic, linear Newtonian
111074 - reductionist thinking. ref SDS 12 K47Q Frustrations attempting to
111075 - apply good management to complex communications causes people to give
111076 - up, noted by Drucker, reviewed on 931130. Rather than invest time to
111077 - understand variables, some people simply classify everything as
111078 - "hidden variables" and revert to intuition, hunch, hope, and fear that
111079 - drives the proverbial "gut feeling," and "warm fuzzy" feeling to guess
111080 - about everyting, rather than attempt to reduce the range of hidden
111081 - variables. People who have given up on good management have adopted a
111082 - notion of "holism" from quantum physics to replace the Newtonian
111083 - reductionist paradigm...
111085 - ..
111086 - Research on 040312 presents a series of lectures for a course on
111087 - 21-century science, ref SDS 11 5J6O,

111242 - Several theorists and researchers have proposed differing yet
111243 - demonstrably useful alternatives to this general linear thinking
111244 - style leading to dramatically enhanced performance in viable idea
111245 - generation, decision-making, and problem solving (Sadler-Smith &
111246 - Shefy, 2004; Runco, 2004; Csikszentmihalyi, 1996; Goleman, 1995).
111247 - Some of these alternative perspectives emphasize the importance of
111248 - intuition; others focus on creativity and flexibility, holistic
111249 - insight, and emotion; and some involve a combination of these.

810411 - formalized operations for symbolic reasoning, which he extended to

890405 - machines" that layed the foundations for Computer Science and software
890406 - engineering, including Artificial Intelligence. Turing machines
890407 - present a theory of manipulating symbols that represent algorithmic
