C7 Diamond value of the Self-Powered Communities (SPC)

How can we accept the idea that we are looking for an object with properties of internal secrecy, excitement and the lasting fear of loss of this on-hand value? That we are looking for the way to the wealth of our life. We know two paths (speculation and projects) that are not mutually exclusive but complementary for this goal. Both tracks are about a business.

  • The first builds on stock market investments, rearranges money through speculation, and gains financial profit. There is the question of protecting the accumulated wealth (e.g., represented by a capital value of an object like diamonds are).

  • The second path builds on technology investment, how to make money and create works (values) through projects which gain financial or not financial profit (e.g., by a capital value of an object like the SPC Concept offers).

Both paths have a common question of protecting the value gained (e.g., through parameters of yields, risks, and liquidity), and both need their monitoring systems to be trustful.

This chapter demonstrates the second path of general ideas on samples of the author's proposals (the SPC Concept, SPC Drivers, and SPC Utility). It allows us to be specific and penetrate essential details. After advocacy of them (e.g., via public or experts discussion), we can generally continue the Concept development with needed evidence and assurance that our thinking is staying on feasibility.

It doesn't sound elementary when discussing processes in organizations or projects. Can we simplify it? Yes, by using a simple example. Transform the project value (e.g., USD one million) by the weight of a small bag of smaller diamonds (e.g., USD one million). If you have diamonds in your hand, you immediately feel strong emotions and need time for your pragmatic thinking about their financial liquid and capital dimension.

Similarly, when we talk about people's lives in their villages and towns, it is about the landscape where they have their families, jobs, and friends. We identify the state (value) of the object with an internal secret that excites us and, at the same time, raises the fear that where we are and where we belong. 

This state has multiple forms and a substantial range of values. For example, it's life with my family, working in a team of people doing well, or sharing my life with an environment I love. The value is children, the money earned, and the space for fun.

This webbook takes the form of an open project. It is an offer to search for a suitable object (value) ready to absorb tasks from the three system areas that the webbook has opened.

The first area is understanding and grasping the Great Trad (GT) principle in the human reform processes open via the beginning of global digitization.

The second area is the defense, testing, and, finally, dissemination of the principles of the SPC Concept (including SPC Utility and SPC Drivers).

The third area covers the need to embed both directions in the lives of low-income countries for two reasons:

  1. To find a place of positive motivation for humanitarian aid and testing new products to prepare and implement projects from the SED, DRR, and HA package.

  2. To support the development of global knowledge from a proven knowledge base, to contribute to the birth of a new paradigm of project preparation, implementation, and use, and to offer space for applications (e.g., AFT, Algorithm Framework Theory) in the broader economic, social and security scale of a changing world.

The Self-Powered Community (SPC) is the position an object that is being designed that favors distributed administration of a community in territorial units (provinces) of about one million inhabitants. "Self-Powered" describes a community's ability to protect physical and mental independence and actively manage their development and security.

The term "Self-Powered" captures a community's ability to preserve physical and legal freedom on a specific territory. It motivates and navigates local people to participate in their development and safety governance.

The text of Chapter C7 continues with supporting Figures with comments on them. Figures C7a.1 to C7a.5 cover the scope of the SPC concept. They deal with the issue of centralized, decentralized, and distribution systems, underlining the importance of the distribution approach and the role of individuals, teams, and collectives in their construction and operation (e.g., in the preparation and implementation of projects).

It is an issue that all W&W chapters are addressing from different perspectives to promote engagement, knowledge, and skills in Data management and data storage in a general and professional environment and thus supporting (opening) the paths to digitization, e.g., within the global tasks of GHT and GDT, which W&W presents to readers for reflection and future cooperation.

Figure C7b describes the structure of sources (paths) of information that flood us. Mentions short stories, studies, and articles about events, activities, and projects that are sources of media reports and comments on events called for in the past, present, and future. Other figures give examples.

Figure C7c provides an example of using a dialectical diagram for a classic short story. Figure C7d provides an example of a short story (narrative) about a father-daughter relationship over time, within one generation, 30 years. Figure C7e reminds us of the critical role of humor and exaggeration when working with data (e.g., to release tension between HS and HD, according to Figure C7a.4).

Figure C7f shows a shift from general discussions to database creation, e.g., in "Data Validity Structure." Figures C7g.1 to C7g.3 is dedicated to the target group (TG) and final beneficiaries (FB) of the projects derived from these processes in the spectrum of the three triads of the Grand Triad (GT), Task Triad (TT), and Project Triad (PT). These Figures address different perspectives on data, for example, by data sorting, ranking, or weighting functions and by observer role interfaces (e.g., individuals, teams, and collectives) from different locations and temporal positions. The Figure demonstrates complexity and confusion In an unstructured data environment.

Figures C7h.1 to C7h.3 remind the importance of the roles of assessment, indicators, and criteria and the priorities of project function parameters (its targeting, costs, and timeliness). All this for time states As-Is and To-Be. For example, to evaluate the prediction and impacts of 3E parameters (effectiveness, efficiency, and economy) in the project cycle (for one project or a portfolio of projects) in any low-income province's communication and business environment.

Figures C7i.1 and C7i.2 highlight comparing natural diamond values with the SPC diamond idea. Figures underline detailed comments. Figure C7i.1 is supplemented with an overview of the different project evaluation methods (M1 to M5), with the emphasis being on presenting the role of the SPC Diamond to the various groups of potential stakeholders and shareholders involved in the construction of the SPC Concept in their province.

The commentary under the Figure characterizes the natural diamond and its methodology for enhancing its value and recalls the importance of a global perception of grading transparency throughout the life cycle of every single diamond, including oversight in the diamond industry to ensure that "conflict diamonds" or "blood diamonds" are not exchanged and sold on the global market. More detailed characteristics of natural diamonds will be presented in this and other chapters of W&W.

Figures C7j.1 to C7j.5 are devoted to the description of the essential components of the SPC Diamond (to their functions and interfaces).

Figure C7j.1 shows the two main parts of the SPC Diamond. The upper part (blue) is dedicated to the goals, and the lower (gold) is dedicated to the paths to the goals (goals). Projects (green) fill the interior space of the virtual model. The model distinguishes three parts on its shell: platform, function, and interface.

Figure C7j.2 SPC presents the Diamond Anatomy model. The upper (goal) side has four hexagons. They represent four functions for the states As-Is and To-Be (Shift, Added Value, Methodology, and Data Management). Similarly, four hexagons (functions) are on the bottom (path) side: Stakeholders (data storage for clients), Examples (SED, DRR, and HA projects), Grading system (based on AI/ML technologies), and information environment (based on the Internet). The Figure presents two levels of interfaces (alfa, beta, gamma, and delta) on the upper side and four interfaces (alfa/beta, beta/gamma, gamma/delta, and delta/alfa) on the lower side. The table below this Figure informs about other options on how the "Diamond anatomy" can be understood broadly (for other different tasks, see Figure W.4).

Figure C7j.3 offers a view into the structure of the SPC Diamond and more deeply breaks down the data (information) chain (data flow) incidental to the upper portion of the SPC Diamond. It allows us to start talking about four independent triads that can help with analytical works (in detail) with clear roles for the comeback to the whole system (to the upper segment and into the complex SPC Diamond). Figure C7j.4 follows the logical line of Figure C7j.3. It Offers a view into the structure of the lower part of the SPC Diamond.
