#Cyberpeacefare "Systems Approach/SystemsThinking":

Fellow Members: Ask a friend/colleague to describe your coffee mug.  If the emphasis is on the physical description (e.g.,off white,size, handle, round etc) without stressing function (to contain and facilitate drinking coffee), the person probably is not trained in "systems thinking."

#Cyberpeacefare "How Occam's Razor Works'(howstuffworks)'":

- "The Principle of Plurality should not be posited without necessity.

- The Principle of Parsimony: It is pointless do with more what is done with less.

- Taken together, they represent the basis of humanity's investigation into the universe."

Reminds me of plane geometry axioms e.g., the test of "necessary and sufficient" conditions.

Question: What is "necessary and sufficient" initiation/individual motivation for cyberspace cyberworld peace uprising ?…

Select Sikh Scripture (A monotheistic religion in the Punjab in 15th century by Guru Nanak)

There is one Supreme Being, the Eternal Reality.

He is the Creator, without fear and devoid of enmity. He is immortal, never incarnated, self existent, known by grace through the Guru.

The name of God  brings blissful peace to the hearts of the truly devout.

Guard and keep me, Friend of the humble, weary from wandering far.

Strengthen me, O Lord, that I shrink not from righteous deeds.

(translated by W.H. McLeod 1984

#Cyberpeacefare Proposed Petition Enlistment Method CyberPeaceCitizens

Might Global Ethics Network consider utilizing  a "petition sign up" approach for facilitating  its members becoming  certified CyberPeaceCitizens ?  Signing the petition would automatically RT "Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me."&U/UsAll" The petition could be linked to Twitter and Facebook, as is now the case for comments. Also, Carnegie might want to add other material/collaborative peace links ? Seems to me part of the problem is confusion on how to RT basic…
