The Ideological Politics of Governing the Larger Complex System

The ideological politics of governing the larger complex system.

When governing a large complex system, specific and larger understanding of the pattern to the complex system is critical. Managing a larger private organisation of 100,000 people is totally different methodology to a country of 75 million. Take it for granted that the honest leadership alone can operate such a complex system would be a big mistake.

In a thermodynamics, there are such threshold of temperature when molecules will enter a chaotic stage: the stage that no conventional pattern of behaviour can be applied. Nonetheless implying unpredictable capability but the methodology is simply different. Complexity can not be taken for granted, especially in greater details. All aspect does matter. One thing is related to one another as widely refer as a Butterfly Effect in Chaos Theory.

In a book OUT OF CONTROL by Kevin Kelly, the idea of complex and evolution science is proposed in a form of Nine Laws of God that may help a better understanding on how to governing, or even to ‘revolve’ any complex system into evolution. Some of the following ideas on how to win the political of any complex system began on such references. Also the idea of Simplicity proposed by Edward De Bono was taken into the consideration, every complex system is merely displayed in a simple form. And the last important reference was some dialogue from the motion picture THE MATRIX: Reloaded. The critical idea on how to create the complex system was clearly summarised in a certain part of the movie when The Architect was describing how The Matrix, a complex simulation of global domain, had been fallen some few times and how to improve it.

The following instruction will be a step by step introduction to the concept and methodology necessary for the governing of any large complex system.

For the sake of the evolution.

The Principle of Complexity

In contradictory to the Newtonian paradigm of metaphysics: one method of control eligible to control over a system, the real structure of every nature-like system is always complex. Metaphysics is only ideology, Newtonian scientist pipe dream that does not exist. This basic understanding of complex system can be comprehended through a model such as self-organisational structure.

Self-organisational structure is a system that governing itself, similar to any biological system. A life-like creation. The system is operated without singularity and rather on bifurcation. In biology, bifurcation can be a stimulation of co-evolving system.

A simple co-evolution system can be explained through an experiment of colour changing chameleon. The chameleon has an interesting biological capacity to change the colour of its skin according to its environmental context. So what will happen if the chameleon is put inside a mirror box of six side? As it tries to change its skin colour to match the context, it is changing its own context by itself. An output becomes an input and that input creates a new output. The states of fluxes indeed.

A simple ecological system is also a perfect example of a co-evolution system. An input produces the output that becomes an input. Global ecology system is a largest closed complex system known to human being. Nature is always a complexity and not simplicity. But, like every good complex system, it tends to appear very simple.

From its co-evolving structure, one important aspect derive from that. Since every part of the system is obligated to be input as well as the output at the same time, every particle in the system is, thus, cohesively integrated. Any changes to a certain part of the system always alters the non-direct consequences event within the system. The reckoned Butterfly Effect can be noted here to further elaborate such behaviour. So, every event connected to other event in the complex system and obligated the other part of the system and even change the pattern of whole system over all.
