organisation of the biomatrix in space: entity systems
entity systems boundaries from the field perspective
From a field or ethos perspective, entity systems do not have clear boundaries, as their in-formation fields can merge and overlap.
The field reality of an entity system refers to the specific in-formation that shapes the form, functioning and development of an entity system. It is focalised in the ethos of the entity system around its self (the dark orange dot in the middle of the ethos field). At the edges, the field extends into a shared information field (e.g. that shared with other members of the species and systems it is connected to through its activity systems). Ultimately the ethos field of each entity system is part of the universal information field of the biomatrix.
In-formation (as well as information in general) is by nature subject to interpretation according to context and perspective. Therefore, the ethos field has fuzzy boundaries, overlaps and merges with the ethos fields of other entity systems. For example, the brand of an organisation is perceived differently by each consumer, according to their own ethos. Likewise, a worldview, like Biomatrix theory, will be interpreted and applied differently by each person coming in contact with the ideas.
Information is synergistic. From the exchange of information new information can arise that was not present before in the interacting systems. It is difficult (if not impossible) to determine who the originator of emergent ideas is and to whom they belong.
An entity system can get in-formed by the ethos of another entity system by aligning with it (e.g. based on a sound argument), being persuaded (e.g. by a smart sales assistant), manipulated (e.g. bya spin doctor), or overpowered (e.g. by brainwashing).
Since in-formation / information is the dominant means of production in the in-formation age, the synergistic quality (i.e. emergence, win / win), multiple interpretation and contextualisation become hugely important. They are also a major source of conflict (e.g. intellectual property rights).For example, what is in a name and who owns it?
relevance for the change manager
Managing across boundaries in the field reality of the biomatrix involves methods that explore, clarify, contextualise, align and differentiate ethos in a self-referring manner. Changing ethos can involve affirming, visioning, thought field therapy and various consciousness related techniques.
