Position Statements

While learning is our primary vocation, where open mindedness is a necessity, there are some iron principles learned from Plan B implementation experience for which compromise is impossible, our position inflexible. Any coercion to do otherwise hits a stop rule. It is a condition of our professional license as the engineer of record to withdraw from a project destined to fail, and we are required to know early-on when that is the case.

The world societies are an unmitigated mess of dysfunction on a grand scale, reflected in the health of their citizens. The cause of this global health calamity cannot be found amongst its wreckage (Gödel/Einstein). The cause resides in a level of abstraction above the level of the carnage.  We have risen to the level of its central cause, found it, fixed it, and validated the fix by multiple implementations, all available to you for examination and evaluation.

The generic fix for Plan A, Plan B, is our benchmark for making progress. Towards that end there is nothing in dissecting the cadavers of Plan A that can be useful. Our position regarding this website offering is to emphasize the knowledge of Plan B and keep the knowledge of Plan A in perspective as the unavoidable consequences for getting Plan B wrong. When you live the happy excitements of Plan B every day, as we do, following the shenanigans of Plan A is a ridiculous waste of your energy.

The elements of our position are called stop rules. Violation of a stop rule automatically scrubs the project. NASA learned about stop rules for launching rockets the hard way.  For Plan A NASA, it took the loss of two shuttles to get there. The stop rules for Plan B are widely distributed before the A-B process, FLLP, is launched.

When goal-seeking performance is the principal measure, personality variations don’t matter to the producers. If goal-seeking performance doesn’t count towards social status, all individual differences matter. W. Livingston 2014

For the producer, there are two riddles blocking the way to a flourishing Plan B that must be answered to attain it.

  1. Technical – material, reality multiplicity, complexity, connectivity, covariance
  2. Psychological-entangled, socio-pathology, species genome bias

These impasses have little in common except the innate limitations of the brain. To solve one riddle provides no traction for solving the other. The dominion of the material barrier is natural law, mathematical physics. The sphere of the psychological barrier is human nature, our Stone Age DNA.

Having been through the war for flourishing, we have a hard position on each barrier. We are intolerant of positions and practices proven to be counterproductive 100% of the time. We have been punished by Nature for attempting to defy her ecosystem laws. While we welcome feedback of any sort, we don’t engage with hard-core entitled consumers.

The conception of a community as consisting of castes or classes whose interests are naturally opposed is scientifically false and politically dangerous. When their vision is limited by a wrong conception of the group, it can lead only to anarchy and disintegration. Aristotle, 320 BCE

Position on barrier multiplicity

Our stipulation on Plan B has been sealed by successful implementations using a battlefield-proven generic paradigm. The riddle of impasse one, material-reality multiplicity, has been solved. It had to be solved before the impasse two riddle identified itself. The hidden second barrier is an ambush carnivore.

The evidence for the claims is far more extraordinary than the windfall claims themselves. No effort will be made to explain, derive, or justify Plan B beyond the website galleries herein. Success features transparency and scrutable connectivity to natural law. Invitation to examine and evaluate active implementations completes our duty to Popper Plan B. Superior validation to hands-on, that the first riddle has been solved, is impossible. That’s why it’s incontrovertible (Popper).

The logic for validation by auditing implementations is solid. Proof by any other means, such as mathematical physics, can be denied with “Show me.” If it’s true, it has to be materially demonstrable. In that regard, the concepts of Plan B can be demonstrated using your shop anywhere, anytime. Opinions have no traction with indifferent natural law. In general, consumers have no interest in learning about the natural laws that channel their lives.

Position on barrier socio-pathology

Since 2014, All efforts in our R&D have been focused on the psychological prime movers, the socio-pathology of Plan B rejection. Rejecting Plan B is rejecting workforce health.

This impasse to Plan B proliferation is, by far, the most complex riddle in sociology. In the last year alone, over eight new dimensions to the barrier have been uncovered. While it’s always good to learn about the previously-unrecognized dimensions, the complexity of variable interactions makes for mind-blowing multi-dimensional complexity.

To wit. Does your depletion in brain glucose from protracted cognitive focus instruct your endocrine system to escalate the stress of fear? Does your migraine deaden your analytical skills? Are you having a “bad” day? There’s no end to the network of factors that impinge on the choice to go Plan B, or not. Experience proved that the only level that has no interest in social status is the workmaster keystone. All other levels are fixated on social status, engaging in counterfeit zero-sum competition for social status where the winners and losers are always the same.

For multi-dimensional riddles like the invisible social dysfunction network, the only procedure of building knowledge for this impasse is the process of elimination. It is easy to identify those “solutions” that repeatedly failed. It is harder to accept that all “solutions” offered by academia and marketing agencies, have failed miserably. Nothing from the conventional playbook has succeeded. Nothing.

Our position on riddle two is to leave it be. We work with the possible (producers) and avoid diluting our efforts pursuing the impossible (entitled authorities). The final impasse is classified as a constraint in perpetuity.

Our dismal record with impasse two, 1980-2020, served to validate the principles.

  • 500 documented contacts with authors to build knowledge in their field. Zero response
  • 3,000 documented contacts with plan A headsheds for raising productivity. Zero response
  • 600 documented technical conference presentations (1970-2013) promoting better way. Zero response
  • 2,000 documented contacts with venture capitalists. Zero response
  • 250 documented contacts with tort lawyers. Negligible response.

The primary learning mode in Plan B think is the process of elimination. For anything significant, it’s always run, break, and fix (RBF).  Through massive daily use, we have turned RBF into an art.

To achieve a social condition that will subsume castes and classes under a community of interest and purpose, human nature may be trusted to work out a gradual solution once the attempt to find political nostrums and ad hoc remedies are abandoned. The very foundation of a just society is a will to collaborate amongst its members. Will, not force, is the basis of Plan B. Elton Mayo

  • Productivity
  • Prosperity
  • Health
  • Welfare
  • Ecological security
  • Safety
  • Quality
  • Inalienable rights
    • The pursuit of happiness
    • Liberty
    • Life
  • Materiality, greed
  • Morality, benevolence
  • Legality
  • Security
  • Survival of the species
