THEORY - Maneuver Concepts
02.06.00 Analysis and synthesis.

How do you do this? Boyd focuses on the relationship of analysis and synthesis within relevant frames of reference in order to shape and maneuver opportunity. Boyd researched mathematical logic, physics, thermodynamics, biology, psychology, anthropology and conflict in order to explain how humans might exploit this scheme.

The essence of Boyd’s research was condensed and explained via a theorem, a principle and a law...or Godel’s Incompleteness Theorems, Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle and, the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Taken together this theorem, principle and law show that it is impossible to determine the character or nature of a system within itself. More importantly, the harder you try to determine the nature of a closed system from within that system, the more confusion, panic and disorder will result.
