META THEORY

BROKEN SYSTEMS

Reference Systems: These are systems that use a broad array of
knowledge to serve one interest. They are broken in the sense
that they serve one interest or focus at a given time.

Extensional Systems: These are systems organized or developed
a certain way. They are broken in the sense that the organization
or development is not coherent, or represents a particular
vantage point.

Dominant Systems: These are systems that dominate a broad
array of information, but they remain broken and incoherent in
that the theory is often simplified and heavy-handed.

Irrational Systems: These systems make use of a highly technical
interpretation to reach results about a broad array of facts. These
are broken in the sense that the facts are not as technical as the
interpretation, or other interpretations might exist.

Involuted Systems: These are systems in which small amounts of
data are used as interpretations for larger data. These systems
are broken in the sense that the smaller interpretation is not
coherent, or may be unrelated to larger facts.
