A Transdisciplinary Lingua Franca


Introduce a tiny set of exhaustive transdisciplinary concepts that most people are intimately familiar with, that can represent all processes that people go through to build their worlds, then use them to organize information, and get people understand the modern world.


One of the hardest things in ensuring access know-how is knowledge representation. It is not easy to find concepts that most people would be intimately familiar, and yet that those concepts would map well across disciplines. So, here is one set of such concepts: to ask Questions, then proceeding to search for Ideas to answer them, then to start and run Projects based on those ideas, and to do Tasks (or "Challenges") with respect to relevant Places to obtain Results. The below is an illustration of how transdisciplinary those concepts are, comparing them with the equivalent concepts in computer science and how they related to the physics.

In Computer Sciences, these concepts correspond to what programmer does within their programs, that rely on TYPES, FUNCTIONS, VARIABLES, VALUES, OPERATIONS and PROCESSES. However, as Alan Turing had shown, these processes decompose into simple INPUT/OUTPUT of bits.

In Physics, scientists study INPUT/OUTPUT processes of MATTER and ENERGY instead, and use mathematics to model the changes they see, formalizing and approximating their behaviors with field equations describing phase spaces. (Note: as we discussed on the idea "MRSGREN", humans do that I/O of M/E as they live as well.)

Think of "FIELD FLUX" in the image as computation -- in that sense, our industries are "physics apps", and if projects are examples of groups of humans "self-programming" to execute on their dreams, then having such examples of contextualized execution (or running of projects) in public would work like open source software, and this is an idea of one set of hypothetical of concepts to achieve this. This idea is currently is being tested here on 0oo.
