Self-referencing: 變不離道, 亂中有序

豋峰造極的吊詭

問得好: 孔夫子是先有「從心所欲」? 還是先有「不逾矩」?

也請問: 齊白石畫蝦的風格, 是自由 ? 還是規範 ?

Change Management: 「自其不變者而觀之」. . . .

蘇軾:前赤壁賦   . . . .客亦知夫水與月乎?逝者如斯,而未嘗往也;盈虛者如彼,而卒莫消長也。葢將自其變者而觀之,則天地曾不能以一瞬;自其不變者而觀 之,則物與我皆無盡也。而又何羨乎?且夫天地之閒,物各有主。苟非吾之所有,雖一毫而莫取。惟江上之清風,與山間之明月,耳得之而為聲,目遇之而成色。取之無禁,用之不竭。是造物者之無盡藏也,而吾與子之所共適. . . .

How things in nature tend to sync up? [TED video 081223

I first refered to this TED video in this post on my blog: Questions about Peter Drucker's questions (09/04/30).  According to mathematician Steven Strogatz (as he explains in the first 7:27 min. of this video,) there are 3 simple rules for bird and fish swarms to synchronize: all individuals are only aware of their nearest neighbour all individuals have a tendency to line up all are attracted to each other but keep a short distance apart (And the 4th rule is to get out of the way when a predator is coming.)

Wow, how nice....

...If only this could be applied to a human organization! Come to think of it, these sync rules might actually fare well in a management context: easy to understand; easy to communicate; mesmurizing results; absolutely no pre-meditated planning needed--the choreography simply evolves by itself, spontaneously.  (Contrary to mathematician Strogatz's suggestion, even the performers themselves are not doing the choreography-- the birds are all on their own;) and talking about change management....  

Understanding nature's "sync rules" through "self-referential encoding"

  Self-referential Encoding -- Wikipedia   Excerpt: Investigations into the relationship between memory and the self originated in the field of personality. Theorists held that an individual’s personality included something akin to a "directory" of traits attached to the self, and that the way they interact with others uses this directory as a template for predicting their behaviour. Traits can also be used to explain the past behaviour of oneself or others. Therefore, the "self" acts as an organisational agent for information in an individual’s world.
