The first REAL-SCIENCE explanation of how people and groups interact and operate! The physical and biological sciences depended for their great development over previous centuries on tangible CONCEPTS and ENTITIES. In order for us to understand and develop the HARD SCIENCES, it was necessary to invent and define concepts such as ATOM, GERM, ENERGY, and PHOTON. Now "Matrix Thinking" begins the same conceptualization process for what are loosely called the "Social Sciences", till now not in the realm of Real Science, but more of anecdote and sampling. In "Matrix Thinking" you will find the introduction of the basic entities INFOCAP and SYSTON. INFOCAP is the general MT term for all things of value in society and groups, not only Information and Capital but much more. INFOCAP The concept is a very broad one, assumed to include all the commonly accepted thing-value items in society, such as capital invested, information resources such as libraries, computer databases, patent rights, buildings, roads, plant, and vehicles. The concept also includes such people-value things as received education, gained expertise and experience, governmental infrastructures, laws, computer programs, and tennis ability, and further extends into more diffuse areas such as results of mineral exploration surveys, stable political systems, climates, and healthy ecosystems. SYSTON Everyone is familiar with the many groupings into which human society is divided. We are members of families, of states, of countries. On a wider basis, we are members of a particular biological species, Homo sapiens. Most of us will also be members of other groupings. We may belong to particular clubs or associations, be members of particular business firms, government departments, or schools or universities. We may be believers in particular religions, supporters of particular political parties, or genetically allocated to particular ethnic groups. Here the general name used for all these groups is the Syston. The term implies that the group has some degree of definability, however imperfect. Within the society model, there is also the assumption that each syston has some degree of self-sustaining or self-perpetuating ability. With these two concepts understood, the way is open for you to understand and exploit the workings of our society, and of termite nests. The words are clear and simple, no complex jargon or stifling mathematics is used. Go to it!
