Value-theory

Value-theory

A value-theory is a coupled Holon that combines a valued outcome with a theory about how to achieve it. It is the essence of information. Value-theories are hopeful expectations. A prediction of what is expected to happen in a given situation contextualised with (i) a desired outcome and (ii) a current state.
 
  • Beliefs are the core medium from which The Grunt (& will) transforms it into MV.
  • The value-theory is the fundamental unit or atom of life
  • Value-theories are fractal in nature and structured holonarchly in a specific pattern
  • Piaget calls VT’s “schemes”
  • Mark Feenstra’s term for foundational beliefs (value-theories) is “Super-positions”

Authors and Authority

  • Law: every value-theory has an author
  • A value-theory is only effective to the extent that the author is granted authority

There is a continuum of value-theories from non-living to living

  • agential ("living")
  • Non-agential ("non-living")
  • Where are value-theories in the MPC?

The penultimate outcome or process of transformation is the authoring of beliefs about oneself.

  • It is the capacity to do this as a “crystalline structure”
As I described in my book Indistractable, several studies have found that behavior change requires identity change. That is, long-term adherence to a new set of actions necessitates seeing ourselves differently. From Be a Schedule Builder, Not a To-Do List Maker
