Time: 10am to 11:30am
Jamie Rose: The future of GST
Google definition:  "A heuristic technique, is any approach to problem solving or self-discovery that employs a practical method that is not guaranteed to be optimal, perfect, or rational, but is nevertheless sufficient for reaching an immediate, short-term goal or approximation. Where finding an optimal solution is impossible or impractical, heuristic methods can be used to speed up the process of finding a satisfactory solution".
As documented in ISSS's 1980 "Behavioral Journal" the editors .. Miller, Rapoport, Laszlo, et al.  understood that "comparing" different disciplines terms and concepts was getting no where.  They attempted a new policy for papers ... Every author had to explicitly define their fundamental terms of scientific measurements.   They thought by accumulating a taxonomy of words and concepts .. as shared simplified~unified dictionary usable for General Systems purpose could be developed.   The effort failed.  
43 years later General Theory of Systems has progressed no further.   Today's 30 minute "elevator pitch presentation" will disturb the majority of ISSS members, but Jamie Rose will identify that current general systems thinkers globally are undereducated in the spectrum of systems the universe is built of, let alone have any true inkling of the foundational qualities and relations involved.   Even the notion of "isomorphs" is an error developed concept.  
Total revampings of Gen Sys concepts and terms are required.   This held for Jamie Rose himself over the years. It is time to take ourselves "back to school" .. and dismantle - remantle foundational General Systems observations, recognitions and concepts about this Universe ... built from less than a half dozen rules of existence and performance.
Bio:   Active in Gen Sys theory development from 1951 (age 4).  Autodidact.  Initial paper 1973.  Formal SGSR//ISSS member since 1997.  Global conferences presenter since 1996.
Debate ENCOURAGED.  Challenges to the proposition:  EXPECTED.
