There are a few points that these two examples are meant to illustrate:

  • The concept of IFR = 0 is especially important and is designed to focus analysis at the supersystem level
  • Associating cost with value can be difficult, a human instinct seems to be associating cost with effort. However, effort without value does not provide enough data to appropriately model
  • While these are super high-level examples without much additional data, TSoT analysis can still produce a lot of insights using the three provided tests
  • Value conflict is real and must be resolved as a solution input from the supersystem, without context of some type models themselves cannot answer the question of “charge more or cost less”
  • Simple problems do not need complex frameworks like TSoT to solve; complex problems do not model well in sociology only based frameworks
