Accurate, complete and timely #information transmission, archival and retrieval are essential for the determination of #CauseAndEffect; #responsibility for #choices; #accountability for #consequences; and #judgement against #transgressions of #LargeSystem #rules and #boundaries.
Because accurate, complete, and timely #information is essential to determine #CauseAndEffect, it drives the ability of a #LargeSystem to #adapt successfully. Conversely, compromised information leads authorized #agents in the system to make decisions that result in its failure.
The basic design criteria for the flows of #information in an adaptive #LargeSystem must assure that EACH agent reports the #truth as that agent experiences it (accurate); ALL agents in the system participate in reporting (complete); and EVERY agent reports continuously (timely).
The #RootCause for the failure of a #LargeSystem to #adapt is its unwillingness to pursue its truth. This occurs because some agents do not consistently report what is true for them or they do report but their messages, as distributed, are no longer accurate, complete, or timely.

Seems like a fortuitous time to reflect on this #BahaiPrayer by ‘Abdu’l‑Bahá:

“O Thou kind Lord! This gathering is turning to Thee. These hearts are radiant with Thy love. These minds and spirits are exhilarated by the message of Thy glad-tidings.
O God! Let this American democracy become glorious in spiritual degrees even as it has aspired to material degrees, and render this just government victorious.
Confirm this revered nation to upraise the standard of the oneness of humanity, to promulgate the Most Great Peace, to become thereby most glorious and praiseworthy among all the nations of the world.

The prevailing social system assigns individual responsibility to each member to engage in paid or unpaid work for as much time as necessary to acquire basic needs—at a minimum.
Should one not be able to do that due to physical and / or mental limitations, then society provides a safety net that makes up the difference—to some degree.
Woe to those who do not engage in paid and unpaid work long enough, hard enough, or smart enough to generate sufficient means to meet their basic needs OR produce evidence that they have physical and / or mental limitations preventing them from doing so.

Oftentimes, private exchanges among those who truly care about one another offer excellent examples of how to recount personal experiences, apply an evaluative framework to them, and convert the insights gained into learning and subsequent change in behavior.
Imagine if these exchanges could feed into a broader #KnowledgeCommons where they can be accessed by others and thereby expedite collective learning / change based on the initial individual learnings / changes?
Imagine how much we could benefit / “profit” from one another if EVERYONE in the world exercised this type of behavior as a matter of daily routine?

Platforms are standalone, organizational units, but users experience them as integrated services. The more seamless the shifts between platform services the more they attract and hold user attention. How to improve integration drives changes in control and ownership of platforms.
Platforms interconnect people within social systems. Once accessed, platforms encourage participants to consume their time interacting among themselves on the platforms in exchange for something deemed acceptable in value derived from the experiences and documented transactions.
Authority figures within a social system expect members to conform to the rules and boundaries as defined by the governance structure of that system. In doing so, they utilize multiple platforms to pursue the purpose of the social system in keeping with its organizing principles.

-method of communication or entertainment, for example television, radio or the internet
-particular technology that is used for broadcasting television or radio programs

Platforms can have both social and technological aspects. They are the media by which individuals can advance their ideas, beliefs, politics, proposals and commitments to vast audiences. Often the choice of “the medium is the message”… one wants to convey.

The ideal social system incentivizes #participation by everyone on vast global #platforms where they exchange their time and its inherent value to generate sufficient #profit that, when shared, meets their basic needs and creates opportunities for their reasonable quality of life
In “Social Action,” a compilation prepared by the Research Department of the Universal House of Justice, the following selection (no. 119)… emphasizes the significance of participation, platforms, and profiting:
“Access to knowledge is the right of every human being, and participation in its generation, application and diffusion a responsibility that all must shoulder in the great enterprise of building a prosperous world civilization—each...according to his or her talents and abilities”
