Version 1.1     |     March 21, 2022

Because of astonishing discoveries and far-reaching impact, it was decided to release a V1 and do the public review for V2.

1. Why the Manifesto?

To solve the problems organizations, societies, and the planet face, we need to let go of the thinking that created them and adopt a new way of thinking 

Einstein

Applying Einstein

1.1 The decision-maker’s dilemma 

Today, nobody knows what the new thinking should be.

This leaves decision-makers with problems that are seemingly impossible to solve.

Yet, many decision-makers, from team leaders to CEOs and politicians, are expected to solve those problems or risk losing their jobs. 1

1 Managers, executives, politicians, their advisors, experts, project managers, initiative owners, innovators

1.2 Meanwhile, solution possibilities of the highest impact are waiting to be unlocked

Where other attempts had failed to reduce bureaucracy drastically, Flatten the Curve had succeeded. 

A Law of Nature for management and social areas has been re-discovered: The capacity bottleneck Law of Nature. 

Various treatments that have delivered exceptional results for mental matters, such as ADHD, dyslexia and autism, demonstrate patterns of applying Flatten-the-Curve practices and, hence, applying the capacity bottleneck Law of Nature.

To solve the problems we face, people with extraordinary skills are needed. Such skills are typically available from people with polymath abilities and the talents that often come with ADHD, dyslexia, autism, and the like. 

1.3 Why are such solution possibilities missing in priority lists?

2. An Astonishing Discovery

Human-made constructs1 overrule Laws of Nature

In the complex world of decision making, initiatives and organizations: 

When tipping points of complexity are crossed, human-made constructs overrule Laws of Nature by default.

Large groups of people have learned to intuitively recognize when decisions, regulations, projects, and the like conflict with the Laws of Nature and act accordingly.

In combination with Core Values and Behavioural Essentials, applying Laws of Nature provides a highest-impact yet lowest-cost possibility to get people on board and solve the problems we face. 

1 Best practices; standards and regulations; processes; IT applications, popular ways of thinking; etc.

3. Solution Possibility

Applying relevant Laws of Nature, Core Human Values, and Behavioural Essentials provides a new way of thinking to solve many if not most of the problems we face

Instead of breaking the challenge into parts, the Manifesto’s co-creators started the task by asking these questions:

1. Where can the highest impact be made at the lowest costs and risks?

2. What does the foundation package have to contain to be executable? 

3. How do we know the Manifesto is executable in and beyond organizations (part of the co-creation for V2)? 

The answers developed into the following package:   

3.1 Einstein

Einstein

The mathematical Einstein

Many associate Einstein with mathematics, but there is more

Bringing the creative Einstein into organizations as well

Einstein

The creative Einstein

His creative thinking enabled his achievements

With the contributions of an Einstein-Newton-Darwin expert: Prof. Michael Fitzgerald 

3.2 Practices

Re-positioning the popular practices 

To where they are highly effective

Comple-mentary

Re-establishing the lost practices 

 

3.3 Decision Making by Laws of Nature

Decision making by

1. Laws of Natures first1

2. Laws of Nature and human-made constructs complementing each other

3.4 Core Values and Behaviour

Generally applicable guidance

Core Human Values and Behavioural Essentials

3.5 Checklists

Checklists for alignment verification

Organizations  |  Innovation  |  Health Services  |  Journalism | Education  |  Science

1 Situations can occur in which it can make sense to prefer human-made constructs. When such situations occur, decision-makers should provide reasons that make sense to people impacted.

5. Getting Started

You can start right away

5.1 Ask Guiding Questions when decisions are to be made 

That is questions hard to ignore 

Do Laws of Nature apply?

Are their practices applied?

Are the decision-makers and their advisors educated in recognizing relevant Laws of Nature and associated phenomena?

Does the team have people trained in applying the Laws of Nature and associated phenomena?

Will the decision improve or worsen core values?

Is adaptive integrity applied?
