The Challenge of a Triple Matrix of Social Mess

November 11, 2012

If, however, we keep, just for the sake of it, with our idea to search for, and model, triples, we may omit in our social mess matrix the domain of Nature since this one is sure to stay with us anyway and, which is more important, may be considered the ecological environment, all forms comprehensible for humans are correlates to and of (to use a phrase coined by Harrison C. White, Identity and Control, 1992, p. 3: “correlates to the ecological environment”, with respect to a biology conceiving of cells and a psychology conceiving of perception and development).

Nature thus may be considered the unknown formed and framed by, and yet at any time surprising, culture, society, and technology. As long as nature is with us, there is no stable pairing of redundancy and variety within culture, society, and technology. And any research program inquiring into possible forms and institutions of culture, society, and technology starts with the distinctions between these three domains with respect to the domain of nature, the notion of complexity describing their changing ways of mapping and matching.

Thus, our social mess matrix when reduced to the idea of pragmatic web triples reads as follows:

Getting back to our operational research form for the most general triple of all pragmatic web triples, which is:

we may call it here a form mapping transitions or transjunctional operations (after Gotthard Günther).

If we combine this form with the social mess matrix consisting of a form capturing the distinction of domains:

and of a form capturing possible inputs and outputs:

we get the following three-dimensional (or almost — we need a little imagination) diagram of our social mess matrix:

Our research question then is: Which techniques of symbolic processing, just-in-time-compilation, semantic, pragmatic, or numerical simulation, and event handling allow us to model the ways social phenomena choose, switch, and abandon to self-organize and reproduce?

The question may be clear. Any answer, it seems to me, is far afield.

    This is a three dimensional interpretation, but it is restricted within a qualitative parameters, and it needs a quantitative measures, I.e. the quantitative measures are sufficient and necessary condition to determain the coordinates of any situation in any given moment, which here drive us to add time as a fourth dimension, and as if time is always exist with the nature in all the interpretation criteria

    However, quantitative measures are nothing but the resultant of all other fields, like education, political situation, security, military, macro, economic, in other word, it is the equation of different vectors of real dynamic powers
