Yin & Yang

Lately I have been doing a lot of research into networks & I have came to find one value common among all mutual agreements. Compromise! I think we often over look this value, failing to realize this is the core value.

What is communication, without the ability to understand the other? What if you understand the other, but the communication is only one way? What if you both understand, but there’s no trust? Isn’t trust believing in the execution of another? When we start to question the “values” of our network we see a common denomination. Execution is the only word that comes to mind when we think of a noun to describe compromise. To bind by mutual agreement, was my favorite way of seeing it put.

I like to think of my network in triangles. 3 sided with 3 points to make 1 figure. If we apply the individual, group, &, other. Other is anything unknown to the group or individual, & is the most critical part of my network concern. So I have to take steps to set up a way to test compromise. To see if execution on my behalf is taking place, while at the same time they are testing me too. Now we see that we can we can bind mutual agreements, we form a third side.
