FUTURLOGICS: Futurlogics is a MOS

MOS: (M)ind (O)perating (S)ystem

What is a MOS?  In computer science an OS is an acronym for (O)perating (S)ystem.  
An Operating System provides a base to put various apps or applications to execute.  
The Mind/Brain also needs an Operating System upon which we can function with 
what we know.  It is how we apply our knowledge, either upon knowledge itself or upon 
the things we know about. It is theory in action.  A MOS or (M)ind (O)perating (S)ystem 
is the theme upon which we execute our methods or praxis.  

FUTURLOGICS: Futurlogics is a Thinking System

What is a Thinking System?  A thinking system is a memorized pattern or model guiding 
the enterprise of thought.  It is trained metacognition that is either self-taught or externally 
educated.  It is a schema.  It is the knowledge of how we think applied to thinking itself.
It is the knowledge of how to control the human mind maximizing it to its full potential.

If this memorized pattern is optimized, it becomes an "Artificial Intelligence" or AI of the 
brain to increase intelligence itself.  If this memorized pattern is incomplete, intelligence is 
decreased through poorly constructed mental subroutines-negative habits.




Does “ Design Thinking ” qualify as a “Thinking System?”


Short answer, yes.


What is the Design Thinking  main memorized pattern?

Check List of Design Thinking   Modes:

Color code standardized to Futurlogics color code.

✹ Empathize Mode -- (Put yourself in the place, mind, perspective of customer.)

✹ Define Mode ------- (Consolidate empathic findings into mission statement.)

✹  Ideate Mode -------- (Imagine solutions or preferences of customer.)

✹  Prototype Mode ---- (Build mental model and generate real mockups.)

✹  Test Mode ----------- (Return to your customer for feedback.)

✹  Decide --------------- (Return to Empathize Mode or Go to Implement Mode.)

✹  Implement Mode --- (Put the vision into effect.)



Can you convert Design Thinking   into Futurlogics ?


Short answer, yes.


Long answer, how?

F U T U R L O G I C S key points:

  • The study of the future develops advanced thinking methods and models.

  • The principles of Prediction, Waiting(Scheduling), Preparation, Planning are improved by FUTURLOGICS and visa versa.

  • Models are the product of Inductive logic

  • Modals are the product of Deductive logic

  • DMP is a dual acronym for (D)irect (M)ind (P)erception and (D)irect (M)ental (P)rocess at once.

  • DMP is the product of the compound of Inductive and Deductive logic

  • DMP is true parallel thinking or Holistic Thinking.

Here are FUTURLOGICS  parallel thinking modes/models aligned with Design Thinking :

  1. Retrospective mode ... Absolute future

    ✹  Empathize Mode -- (Put yourself in the place, mind, perspective of customer.)

  2. Observational mode ... Natural future

    ✹  Define Mode ------- (Consolidate empathic findings into mission statement.)

  3. Imaginary mode ... Imaginary future

    ✹  Ideate Mode -------- (Imagine solutions or preferences of customer.)

  4. Assumptive mode ... Artificial future

    ✹  Prototype Mode ---- (Build mental model and generate real mockups.)

  5. Creative mode ... Synthetic future

    ✹  Test Mode ----------- (Return to your customer for feedback.)

  6. Model mode ... Paradigm future

  7. ✹  Decide --------------- (Return to Empathize Mode or Go to Implement Mode.)

    ✹  Implement Mode --- (Put the vision into effect for one or more futures.)


Spectrum of FUTURLOGICS  parallel thinking modes/models Design Thinking applied:


  • Ignorance ... Unbelief ... Prejudice ... Denial ... Blackness

  • Retrospective mode ... Absolute future  ... Red  Earth  history and tradition

    ✹  Empathize Mode -- (Put yourself in the place, mind, perspective of customer{Earth History, Tradition, Society, etc.}.)

    How can one empathize without knowledge of the customer's history and the product's provenance?

    " Empathy requires us to put aside our learning, culture, knowledge, opinions, and worldview purposefully in order to understand other peoples’ experiences of things deeply and meaningfully. It requires a strong sense of imagination for us to be able to see through another person’s eyes. It requires humility so we can seek to abandon our preconceived ideas and biases. It requires that we have a heightened awareness of other peoples’ needs, wants, motivations and goals. Let’s go through the traits an empathic observer should possess—and some methods you can use to gain a deep understanding of the people for whom you are designing."

    Decide if you are your own customer.

    Decide your percentage of Empathizing with your customer(s).

    50% Empathizing means you see eye to eye with your customers, so decide percentage.

    100% Empathizing means you become your customers and lose yourself, so decide percentage.

    200% Empathizing means you see yourself from the customers point of view, so decide percentage.

    Empathize with the question "Where is it all going?"

    Or

    Other Empathize Subjects("customers") in the Empathize Mode next:

    • Parental Influences, Tradition, Inheritance.

    • Social Memes or Viral Changes in Society.

    • Educational Agendas.

    • Economic Differences Impact i.e. “follow the money” "Track the Gold"

    • Social Pressures, Conformity, Individuality.

    • Language Patterns, Communications role in change mechanics.

    • Group Thinking vs. Personal Thinking.

    • Matthew 5:21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time . . . .

    Empathize with your future self to be.

  • Observational mode ... Natural future  ... Yellow physics of our sun and its  science

    ✹  Define Mode ------- (Consolidate empathic findings into mission statement.)

    Define "half full."

    Define "half empty."

    Define what "half" means.

    Define what the method of Definitions is to be used.

  • Imaginary mode ... Imaginary future ... Blue sky and free thought  of imagination

    ✹  Ideate Mode -------- (Imagine solutions or preferences of customer.)

  • Assumptive mode ... Artificial future ... Orange choice, risk, subconscious gambling, passions

    ✹  Prototype Mode ---- (Build mental model and generate real mockups of future. This is Visioning)

  • Creative mode ... Synthetic future ...  Green synthesis of the leaf of the tree of creation

    ✹  Test Mode ----------- (Return to your customer for feedback. Re-engineer or re-create or make future come to pass.)

  • Model mode ... Paradigm future  ... Violet  integration of modal and model thought projection of the future

    ✹  Decide --------------- (Return to Empathize Mode or Go to Implement Mode.)

  • FUTURLOGICS ... Rainbow Spectrum  ...   a system to organize the spectrums of thought Text to read

    ✹  Decide --------------- (Decide which future or futures the customer wants and return to Empathize Mode or Go to Implement Mode.)

    ✹  Implement Mode --- (Put the vision into effect.)

  • DMP  ... White light of intelligence, or intuition and insight
