A system is a collection of physical and nonphysical interactive parts all having a connection through a mutual purpose of achieving some goal Everything around us is a system and everything has certain patterns of behavior At the base level the behavior of all systems is fundamentally the same Based on this observation we can speculate the results of any event that that takes place in reference to any system There are three universal laws of systems behavior synergy reciprocity and balance The first systemic law of behavior is synergy Synergy similar to the Gestalt approach in psychology states that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts A well known example as noted in our book are the works of R Buckminster Fuller who designed the geodesic dome Synergy can be seen well in anything with a physical existence Technology simply enhances synergy by combining resources and capital made available to societies to provide themselves with material tools and goods This directly relates to our evolutionary process known as technologizing Examples of this can be seen in business systems when subsystems such as computers people papers buildings and transportation are combined is far more efficient This law can be applied to larger systems such as our social political and economic structures The second systemic law of behavior is reciprocity Stated best what you put in is what you get out In every system synergy and reciprocity play hand in hand An example of this is TNT If a large amount of TNT is set inside of a cave and ignited the result is an explosion In doing so there is a shock wave underground that can be felt maybe even collapsing the overhead ground By focusing the energy in the system we are able to choose our desired results The same can apply to sociopolitico-economics Take for example computers which have created whole new industries The output computers are built
