Design and ontology

Design is an act of merging ontologies for the purpose of acceptance of one or more ontologies within others.

Role of a designer is to be a bridge between ontologies. Designers must understand both ontologies and discover the way way to fit them into a single product.

Hyper-change, openness, metamodernism, agile

The rate of change is accelerating reducing the protection of traditional or empirical knowledge. This accelerated change is called hyper-change. Hyper-change will continue to accelerate. To avoid increase of damage caused by hyper-change it is necessary to apply openness and agility in the hyper-change process.

Openness will allow collection of real-time knowledge which can be used for prevention and reduction of damage. Agility will add controlled stops in the hyper-change process allowing adaptation to the openness knowledge.

Metamodernism is valuable for including all system members, visible and not visible, in openness. Metamodernism is currently the most inclusive approach to knowledge exchange and it decreases overall damage caused by hyper-change.
