healthcare provides key insights for other economic sectors…

to capture value in one sector start with another…

starting off mild + wide in an adjacent sector creates intense + narrow physical world momentum that moves centers of power in intended sector » in terms of investing and business leadership, it is all about healthcare now…

*economic sector1

[dear receiver (dr):2 all links are relevant…]

What is happening? as the effectiveness of the conventional business investing and leadership models evaporate and are forcing consolidations, a new effective business operating system(s) are surfacing and demonstrating new robust core power move(s):

  • the synthesis (the combination of existing components to form a new whole), of data, new technology and timeless tactical techniques, plus new strategies, together unlock previously unavailable three level arcane acumen3

  • known Patterns create new Opportunities which create new Value (POV) are explicitly different and move differently than conventional ‘platforms’ (business, software, and more…)

  • to accommodate ‘the more’ in the above signal, we have moved off the use of the word ‘platform’ and on to the word ‘interface‘, in conjunction with ‘interactions‘ and ‘transactions‘, to more accurately understand what all is happening…

Specific to this investing + leadership focus:

healthcare is power and with all forms of power…

“it’s not just what power is ∞ it’s how power moves…”

and healthcare is power on the move.

here is what we see surfacing…

∞1 due to the hyper-connectivity of data » how power gets done in the computer sector has spilled out into the physical world » which is to say, the definition of ‘hardware’, ‘software’, ‘interfaces’, ‘interactions’ and ‘transactions’ gets extended beyond core processors, RAM chips, ‘coding’ and ‘app stores’ to grain seed planting equipment, grain bins, groceries, kitchens, stethoscopes, tongue depressors and more… » resulting in new ways power gets done in the physical world » which are in turn incorporated into human interactions 4

∞2 Once again, complementary contrarian forces meet, interact and transact…

∞3 in today’s investing and business leadership vocabulary…

  • in our view, this means, industry sectors previously thought as separate, comes a viable, scalable, repeatable, data fueled holistic business operating system capable of weaving together multiple industry sectors » which is simultaneously taking across-the-board (FLABS5) systemic waste and transactional friction reduction opportunities to new levels of ‘value added’ consumer experiences, like monetizing consumer FLABS feedback interactions » also surfacing is the recognition this emerging phenomena is replacing conventional business investment and leadership models of all types » notably, the conglomerate and its outcome-based worldview…
    • our working term for this unique phenomena is ‘symbiotic synthesis’.6

This discussion starter is designed to lift up investment and business leadership power moves…

So What? More and more of the biggest beneficiaries of the conventional “aggregation of power through the aggregation of stuff’ strategy, have left it and its business investing and leadership model behind » if you have been busy hammering away at your operations, you may have missed these moves. We suggest now is the time to stop and consider to ‘synthesize something more…’.

(See this article for the more…)

Here are the new first time ∞ space ∞ power moves surfacing we see. What do you see?

the flip in time we see…

∞1 in a previous article we lifted up how conventional business investing and leadership, (the managing of business power) has flipped from outcome-based conglomerate order to spontaneous mesh peer environment order.

∞2 an anticipated 12,000 year old ‘let go ∞ arrive early ∞ await the coming adversary’ known now as the ‘leave early’ strategy7. What is seen surfacing and works to deal with what can’t be controlled and flips conventional financial, logistical, analytical, biological, and social (FLABS) ‘rules of thumb‘ » ‘leave early’ works with the ‘gradual, then sudden’ collapse of conventional style of investing and business models…

  • we see a timeless power acumen in the physical world that easily spans generations of humanity » we humans have forgotten the wisdom that comes with experience » there is no fault to be found, it just is.
  • For example…we see a potential colossal calamity coming » colossal because it spans the financial, logistical, analytical, biological and social components of how we humans interact with each other, our technologies and the physical world.
  • we have seen this fact pattern before. » we also see the ‘leave early’ strategy to be proven and viable enough to at least soften the blow for humanity to survive and thrive, if not outright avoid disaster. The key to the ‘leave early’ strategy is letting go and being seen moving in new ways and directions. This move is difficult for all and nearly impossible for many, but is exactly what successful people are seen doing all the time.
    • Financial Domain Example:
    • Biological Domain Example:
    • in a tsunami event, one can continue to stand on the shore enjoying the sun and wondering why the water is retreating into the sea, or one can leave early, move to higher ground, and watch the calamity come to pass, so as to be a part of the recovery…

∞3 the adversary/calamity we see coming is not something that can be easily quantified or analyzed » rather it is about what has always plagued humanity; the lack of self-awareness that leads to self-deception that creates selfish environments (the self-deception cycle) » humanity’s historical resistance to recognize the change in what is already happening around us, distracting us from ‘leaving early’…

∞4 like many powerful forces found in the physical world resulting in a collapse, we can only sense what is coming. It takes elongated periods of time to evidence and confirm this sense of collapse…

what flip in time do you see?

the flip in space we see…

∞1 the realization that conventional one-off business projects (investing, operations and more) presently envisioned by the human mind alone, are inherently intense and narrow in the first place » are being replaced by the realization with today’s off-the-shelf distributive technologies8 can now simultaneously handle mild and wide connections never before seen in an ever expanding playing field » in this specific case, healthcare’s primitive end (seeds, soils and more) as well as the developing end (consumer side: insurance, doctor visits, diets and more…)

∞2 for full context of our use of ‘primitive’ we offer these two resources:

∞3 in the new time ∞ space ∞ power relationship » at the onset, time and power have equal ranking, but space blossoms, expands, emerges in new ways

∞4 space is expanding and is literally holding space for time and power to catch up…

  • in our view: ‘the big bang of the blockchain, and more…’

∞5 what does the ‘and more…’ look like » no one knows for sure. News this week reveals Amazon.com is seeking banking partnerships for new financial systems which close the loop on the old financial models and are signaling what large scale blockchain enabled business systems designed to increase the velocity of money may look like…

what flip in space do you see?

the flip in power we see…

∞1 intensifying and adding momentum to these irreversible flips in both basic distributive technologies and fundamental human interactions is the $3 Trillion of under deployed, or uncommitted status, investment capital hitting the market in a short amount of time.

∞2 tactical activities presently occurring at the developing edge of what is coming next for healthcare, creates a strategic opportunity for a fresh holistic approach to the healthcare sector’s primitive edge (seeds, soils and more…)

∞3 the need for investment and business leaders to step back from ‘hub and spoke’ models (conventional hedge fund, conglomerates, and more…) and recognize the necessity and grow of more effective, super efficient alternatives…

  • these alternatives not only meet end-to-end (interconnect) but also twisted together (intertwine).
    • Think in terms of interwoven connections, twisted together from multiple directions and at multiple angles to one another, and more…
  • Blockchain flipping currencies, the #metoo movement flipping numerous institutions are, in our view, just the start
    • additional power flips we see coming include:
      • Financial: velocity of money
      • Logistical: local food production ∞ consumption
      • Analytical: distributive application engineering and financing
      • Biological: wide-scale adoption of ‘organic’, ‘non-GMO’ and other ‘natural beginnings’
      • Social: new human-to-human interactions starting out mild + wide and scaling to (at rates few are prepared for) intense + narrow phenomena that disrupt many long-standing institution’s hub and spoke, outcome-based data, perception, decision, and action making
    • we are grateful for Irving Wladawsky-Berger’s Blockchains: the Promise of More Frictionless, Trusted Economies

what flip in power do you see?

confluence

In our view, investing and business leadership begins with establishing across-the-board (FLABS) capabilities which create a more effective path to tap into the intellectual capital, the networks and the relationships which will enable an interweaving of power not present in today’s segmented arcane acumen9. This flip into a holistic power interface is designed to increase across-the-board transactional velocities, reduce systemic waste and friction.

in physical world vocabulary…
now is the time to leave early » not be seen enjoying the sun and wondering what comes next…

Agnetic is committed to being a part of the crew that both minimizes the intensity of what we see as a coming calamity and part of the post-potential calamity recovery crew » for us, this means being seen working with others working it all out…

(Spoiler Alert: No rocket ships required…)

what flips in the time ∞ space ∞ power relationship do you see?


  1. ∞ the definition of ‘economic sector appears to be somewhat fluid. (see below)

    ∞ in our view, distributive technology has not only unleashed significant amounts of raw data, as well as new mathematical abilities to unlock this previously arcane acumen unseen value from individuals, institutions and industries.

    ∞ this new transparency, along with its initial signals, are surfacing patterns to a more effective way to capture this value; synthesize (the combination of existing components to form a new whole) these patterns in a non-target sector and then move back into your intended sector.

    …when we sought definition clarity for ‘economic sector’ we found two basic categories of definitions:

    1) used widely to describe everything from raw materials to “high level” government and industry decision makers

    2) a more specialized one for a ‘investing worldview’

    economic sector-1

    economic sector-2

    sector

  2. “dear receiver” is our way of expressing the following equally ranked items:

    ∞ in similar context and focus of wikipedia’s dear reader

    ∞ our use of ‘dear receiver’ is striving to show what we see being signaled from the physical world so others can tell us what they see » all as a preliminary signals exchange » these interactions come before any transactions.

    ∞ much like the base premise of wikipedia as a great starting point for any research project, and definitely not intended to be an all to end all, our articles should be understood as a starting point…

    ∞ links with paywalls are included » we sympathize with the difficulties incurred…

    ∞ the links we provide in our articles are a courtesy » links in general may prove difficult to maintain as the digital connections morph and degrade over time » when they do, we will not be going back to correct…

    ∞ while the links may degrade or behind ‘paywalls’, the validity of the tactical power insights, and more…, remain timeless.

    ∞ it’s this ability to remain relevant over long periods of time, even in today’s temporary age of humans getting used to the new role distributive technology plays in our lives, is at the heart of why we present the items we do…

  7. ∞ ‘leave early’ is code for the combination of:

    “leave early to hold space to see what new technologies and techniques have surfaced that can be regrouped, recombined (synthesized) in new ways to reduce frictions, remove waste and create value…

    and

    Whoever is first in the field and awaits the coming of the enemy, will be fresh for the fight; whoever is second in the field and has to hasten to battle will arrive exhausted.

    ∞ leaving the comfort of one’s cherished strategic playbook and conventional, outcome-based tactical power plays that have worked so well for so many years (decades?, generation(s)?, longer?) is very difficult….

    ∞ for the record, what we are discussing is not a ‘either/or’ choice, but rather a ‘both/and’ choice…

    ∞ we are suggesting you hold enough space in your data, perception, decision, action making for the notion there are new Patterns ∞ Opportunities ∞ Value that complement your traditional business investing and leadership models…

    ∞ ‘transactions, or the gathering of stuff is still important » however, due to irreversible, momentum gathering technological advancements there will be less stuff to gather and what there is to gather will not be the same stuff as present day stuff » example: self-driving electric cars owned by someone else hauling everyone around (Uber 2.0 & Uber’s competitors coming from multiple industrial, software and other sectors…) versus today’s internal combustion engines that need human drivers in which ‘conventional wisdom’ tell us automobile manufacture’s control ‘market share’ and other antiquated worldviews…
