The System Overview
Auravana Project: Societal Specification Standard
This publication is the System Overview for a community-type society. In other words, this is the system overview for a proposed societal system of the type ‘community’. A system overview provides high-level models and relatable descriptions of a system’s organization; the organized understanding of community. This overview identifies how humanity organizes information in order to structure its adaptation to a dynamic, emergent environment where humans have needs that can be optimally fulfilled, given what is known. This overview is necessary for social understanding, and it specifies, (1) a high-level, unified model for the organization of societal information, in such a way as to sustain human fulfillment, and (2) a treatise on community as a type of society (i.e., community is a type of configuration of the societal system). Discursive reasoning is provided for this specific configuration of a societal system, as opposed to the selection and encoding of other configurations.
