Da Vinci StataSphere Boot Camp


Published on

When a car gets stuck in the snow, people instantly start pushing in the same direction to get it out of the snow. But when people's personal lives or their companies get stuck, not everyone is pushing in the same direction. In fact most of the effort goes to cancelling out the work of others.

The Statasphere is a brilliant new tool that instantly shows you where your purposes are misaligned.

Its one simple tool, but it will make you far more efficient and give you a significant competitive edge over your competition. In addition, it will help put your entire life back into perspective?

The most successful people in the world all have their own secret tools that give them an edge, so why not you?

Yes, at times the chaos around us makes us crazy. The Internet Bubble, 9-11, Iraq, Afghanistan, $4 gallon gas, subprime mortgages, the Great Recession, credit crisis, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, i-pod, i- phone/ Smartphone ... -- and we are not even 9 years into the new millennium.

Clearly it is a whole new world out there, and we need a whole new way of working with it. That's where the Statasphere comes in.

  • I’m suggesting we move this slide up to present a direct contrast between mechanistic/reductionist frameworks and CASs. You’ll also notice that I changed an item or two, Phil. I wanted to be sure and include GST since it is foundational to both biological and social sciences.

    23. 23. Chairman Waxman to Dr. Alan Greenspan:<br />You feel that your ideology pushed you to make decisions that you wish you had not made? <br />
    24. 24. Mr. Greenspan:<br />What I am saying to you is, yes, <br />I found a flaw, I don’t know how significant or permanent it is, but I have been very distressed by that fact. <br />
    25. 25. Chairman Waxman:<br />You found a flaw?<br />Mr. Greenspan:<br />I found a flaw in the model that I perceived is the critical functioning structure that defines how the world works, so to speak.<br />
    26. 26. Chairman Waxman:<br />In other words, you found that your view of the world, your ideology, was not right, it was not working.<br />
    27. 27. Mr. Greenspan:<br />Precisely. That’s precisely the reason I was shocked, because I had been going for 40 years or more with very considerable evidence that it was working exceptionally well.<br />
