The Systematizer!

So, I made a little Excel program, that shows the basics of: How a System Works

You can watch the 12-minute video demo of it, here!

(Prolly easier to understand me talking on it, if you have Closed Captions on, in YouTube)

Then you can play around with it (The Systematizer Excel program) yourself;

…you can download it from: here. (Or, click the image below)

The Systematizer (Excel program) – Velikovsky 2019

(As the video notes – Remember also, to click `Enable Content’, to enable the macros within the Worksheet.)

And, there are more posts on Systems Theory, here:      (er… if you like that kind of thing?)

So anyway, maybe download the Excel program (The Systematizer). And – have a play around with it!

The Systematizer (Excel program)

Hopefully, it’s very helpful, in understanding Systems (…What they are, & How they work, & Why)…

…and, thus also Systems Theory, Systems Philosophy, Systems Thinking, and Systems Science! (Yay!)

And even, the Systems Model of Creativity, (and, Creative Practice Theory), and even, my PhD on movie screenwriting creativity, and – so on! …Systems-R-Us!!!

The DIFi systems model of Science (Velikovsky 2014, after Csikszentmihalyi 1988, 1996)

The Feature Film Domain, as a System (derived from Csikszentmihalyi 1996)

Omg, I heart diagrams… Here’s another one.
