community programming unities

Each community uₙ∈U is equivalent to a set of individuals and institutions who generate systems¹, and who are working together and within those systems “

for the welfare of people both within and beyond

”. These kinds of communities are organic² and autopoietic³, unfolding⁵ over time.

“

Ye are the fruits of one tree, and the leaves of one branch.

”

Each

u can be transformed by it’s practice of

p

ₙ∈P¹ at time

t

, eg

p@

t

₀...ₙ(

u

)= p@

t

₀(

u

)=

u

, with each pₙ bringing u nearer to it’s “paradise”⁴ through the expression of "

that which is heavenly in human beings

”⁵.

“

And similar to the development of a living organism,

growth can occur quickly when the right conditions are in place.

”

We seek to study the dynamics of structure and function in u,p in a metamodel :

¹ Individuals, families, and institutions are

generators

of configurations of themselves as some group, using the capacities in the sequence to generate some possible community in the set.

they autogenerate!

² “

organic is organized

” - Counselor Rosenberg

³ a unity is an autopoietic* entities which can be simple or composite, with some invariant organization and a changing , unfolding structure. In cpu, it means that u generates p, which in turn generates u.

⁴ a rhizome is a Deleuzian structure capable of self healing.

⁵ unfolding refers to the process of structure preserving transformations.

⁴ “

Whoso possesseth power over anything

must elevate it to its uttermost perfection

that it not be deprived of its own paradise.

”

⁵ “

that which is heavenly

” is the set of things that helped collective life to evolve in size and complexity (

unity)

, eg justice and love: “

The only emotion that expands intelligence is love ... intelligence has to do with the acceptance of the legitimacy of the other and the expansion of the possibility for consensuality

.” - maturana ( cybernetics ) Requisite for a program to evolve.

* “

It is through the workings of these elements of an intensified individual and collective transformation that the size of the community is increasing.

” - Universal House of Justice

“

Historically, the two aspects at the scale of plant components, their structure and their function, were treated separately by different models (and different research groups). Structural models (also called architectural models) were mostly descriptive and did not take into account internal processes. Functional models (also called process models) focused on a detailed representation of mathematically coupled quantities of internal processes (e. g., photosynthesis, water, sugar and nutrient transport, allocation), but had only a coarse representation of structure, if any.

”

“

The pattern of community life has to be developed in places where receptivity wells up, those small centres of population where intense activity can be sustained. It is here, when carrying out the work of community building within such a narrow compass, that the interlocking dimensions of community life are most coherently expressed, here that the process of collective transformation is most keenly felt.

“controller" has requisite variety - that is, has the capacity to maintain the outcomes of a

situation within a target set of desirable states - if and only if it has the capacity to produce

responses to all those disturbances that are likely to take the outcomes out of the target set.” - ashby

“ The T- and V-machines are what we would now call neural nets: the T-machine collects data on the state of the factory and its environment and translates them into meaningful form. The V- machine reverses the operation, issuing commands for action in the spaces of s1, s2, etc “ - pickering on beer

“

... this crystal representeth the paradise of the stone whereof its substance is composed.

Likewise there are various stages in the paradise for the crystal itself…

a

generating set of a group

is a subset of the group set such that every element of the group can be expressed as a combination (under the group operation) of finitely many elements of the subset and their inverses.

if

S

is a subset of a group

G

, then ⟨

S

⟩, the

subgroup generated by S

, is the smallest subgroup of

G

containing every element of

S

, which is equal to the intersection over all subgroups containing the elements of

S

; equivalently, ⟨

S

⟩ is the subgroup of all elements of

G

that can be expressed as the finite product of elements in

S

and their inverses. (Note that inverses are only needed if the group is infinite; in a finite group, the inverse of an element can be expressed as a power of that element.)

If

G

= ⟨

S

⟩, then we say that

S

generates

G

, and the elements in

S

are called

generators

or

group generators
