Learn where is power

Power is needed to activate changes towards meta-vision.

Definitions: Power (Wikipedia)

In system there is a certain organ to produce power, a transformer to change input to output and respond to the feedback (Fig. 1).

Fig 1: Power of system.

Currently, an interest in applying control methods in physics is growing. The following areas of research are being actively developed: Control of oscillations, Control of synchronization, Control of chaos, bifurcations, Control of phase transitions, stochastic resonance, Optimal control in thermodynamics and Control of micromechanical, molecular and quantum systems.

Power and energy

Fig 2. Universal Systems Model (USM).

Parameters and players in the ”systems game” are (Fig 1) tools, information, people, time, energy, money and materials. The loop should be learning, even using three nesting learning loops, if needed.

Physics and thermodynamics and biology define relevant powers (models) for systems

Force between systems can be

  • Cohesion to make closer (fission): nuclear power stations
  • Adhesion to make more distant (fusion): sun
  • Forces of chemistry: endogenous and exogenous factors from inside or outside
  • In biology there are forces to circulate material, to split it or to branch it and to transform into a new form

 Opinions are forces, too

What is most important, most efficient, most powerful: politics, economy, society, technology, law and moderity of relations to environment (nature). The most powerful factor is the most critical one. It leads to decision theories and theory of constraints (TOC).

”Political power is an authority held by a group within a society that allows for the administration of public resources and implement policies for society. Power may be acquired as a means of governmental direction or in opposition to a government group.” It is measured in elections.

Personal power

According to Greene about personal power, influence:

”Power is the measure of the degree of control you have over circumstances in your life and the actions of the people around you. It is a skill that is developed by a deep understanding of human nature, of what truly motivates people, and of the manipulations necessary for advancement and protection. Power works best when it is indirect — never coercing people; instead, getting them to voluntarily align with your interests.”
