newview On PCT
The newviewonpct mission is to invite and offer everyone to
consider and voluntarily accept
the thesis that behavior is the control of perception -
and that this is the scientific and practical core of how
living beings exist and operate in this world.
The newviewonpct strategy integrates a range of systems
thinkers’ work into a whole systems approach with
WilliamT.Powers’ PCT as its core concept.
When embodied in the lives of an increasing number of people on
this planet, this newviewonpct vision, if engineered
effectively, would "make the world work for all of humanity”!
It is in this spirit that we use R. Buckminster Fuller’s
Dymaxion Map and World Game Challenge whose goal is “in Fuller's
words, to “make the world work, for 100% of humanity, in the
shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation, without
ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone.”
The map is promising and the game is challenging.
Come play with us.
Dymaxion map and World Game
Fuller, along with co-cartographer Shoji Sadao, also designed
an alternative projection map, called the Dymaxion map. This was
designed to show Earth's continents with minimum distortion when
projected or printed on a flat surface.
In the 1960s, Fuller developed the World Game, a collaborative
simulation game played on a 70-by-35-foot Dymaxion map, in
which players attempt to solve world problems. The object
of the simulation game is, in Fuller's words, to “make the world
work, for 100% of humanity, in the shortest possible time, through
spontaneous cooperation, without ecological offense or the
disadvantage of anyone.”
I classify PCT as a theoretical life science who basic
proposition is: Behavior is the Control of Perception. My
own synonymous expression of this is: living is behaving is
