I wanted to understand how he was looking at it, so I redrew it in three different ways. Read more to see different interpretations.
First, I I defined everything in the diagram as an object. This means that the outer pentagrams are directly connected to “Relationships,” “Logistics,” and “Boundary.” In turn, relationships are connected to “People” while “Boundary” is connected to an implicit “Outside World.”
Next, I assumed that “Logistics” is not some all encompassing entity, but connected two neighboring pentagons. This is possible but non obvious.
Last, I assumed that “Relationships” are actually relations, so that the outer pentagons connect directly to “People.”
That same simplification, but keeping logistics as an object connecting all the outer pentagons together, is:
Alternatively, “Logistics” touches boundary in Critt’s version, so maybe the game is better mapped:
Of course, I may be wrong on all of these. Am I getting close, Critt? Or barking up the wrong tree?
