Polyscopy

Science helped shape – and was shaped by – the Enlightenment. Polyscopy prototypes the creation of truth and meaning that can foster the next stage of our societal and cultural evolution.

What should information be like to help orient people in the complex reality? How should information be created and used, so that it may best help us overcome the difficulties that our present way of evolving as society has led us to, and begin to evolve in a radically better way?

In the light of the increasing presence of global issues – and the detailed and disciplinary focus in the sciences coupled with the sensationalist focus in media informing – left a number of acutely interesting questions such as the two just mentioned unanswered. Polyscopy has been conceived to fill in this gap in a proactive way – by being a prototype answer, which includes a strategy to put that answer into real-life practice

Polyscopy is inextricably linked with The Paradigm Strategy – it enables it; and it is the kind of information that suits the emerging paradigm – where information is created and used to provide guidance. Polyscopy is conceived as a complete proof of concept for the new information – addressing the full spectrum of issues ranging from epistemology and method, to social organization, technology and marketing.

Polyscopy motivates and defines itself by this ideogram. Our civilization is represented as a bus in which we are all riding celebrating Steve the buses candle headlights the boss has candle headlights the headlights we presented our informing. The message of this ideograph is that our situation is calling for radical change beer. We can no longer inherit information we must smell design it to suit a larger whole in which it has a role.

The ideogram most suitably presents the perhaps surprising fact that polyscopy is a paradigm in three domains simultaneously (in the sense that it enables us to resolve the reported anomalies and resume and accelerate progress – as the word "paradigm" has been defined and used by Thomas Kuhn)


  • PRAGMATIC – The Paradigm Strategy – indicating that the quest for a new direction is naturally answered by creating a suitable light that can enable the quest to be completed. And this indeed turns out to be the case – as The Paradigm Strategy is a perhaps surprising and well-founded answer to that quest, which is provided with the help of polyscopy
  • FUNDAMENTAL – this ideogram represents what has been called the design epistemology, where epistemology is used to denote most generally the assumptions and principles that define how we value information and set our priorities. According to the design epistemology, the work that is being done by Knowledge Federation would be considered as basic research
  • TECHNICNOLOGICAL in the broadest sense, which includes both technology and innovation in general. You idiot appoints to systemic innovation where are we game to improve the system in reach what's it creating a zero and where information innovation is guided by suitable information and how it's used, both in technology and in other things.
