The Roots of Collaborative Innovation

The Roots of Collaborative Innovation

Based on the CICT perspective, the emerging reality is that we live in a relational reality. What does that mean? It means that the properties of the biosphere around us stem not only from properties of its ultimate building blocks, but from the relations among these building blocks too. Self-organization is an obvious principle which is embedded in our description of the universe. CICT is a precision driven, pre-spatial geometro-arithmetic framework for open system (Fiorini, 2014b, 2017b).

According to CICT, the full information content of any symbolic representation emerges from the capture of two fundamental coupled components: the linear one (unfolded, associated to external representation) and the nonlinear one (folded, associated to internal representation). From a common language perspective, taking into consideration the folding and unfolding properties of CICT structured “OpeRational” (OR) representations for the Space-Time Split (STS) (Fiorini, 2015), one can conceive a better operative understanding of usual terms, with the added possibility of information conservation as shown in “The Four Quadrants of The Space-Time Split” (Figure 3) through a narrative point of view (Fiorini, 2014a).
Here, the term “Timeline” (first quadrant, top right) is considered the combination of a major linear time representation framed by folded minor space representation.

The term “Overview” (second quadrant, top left) is interpreted as the combined representation of major linear space and major linear time representations, with minor complementary folded time and space components.
The term “Snapshot” (third quadrant, bottom left) can be assumed as the combination of a major linear space representation framed by the minor folded time representation.
