Hi Chris,

I followed the link to and have been looking at some similar
issues in terms of relationships, although certainly not to the extent you
have. I came up with the "7" rules of engagement for the next economy
that is a bit of a different take and of course adds the third win, which
causes us to create a mental model of a generative state (I guess of
entropy<G>), still working on what causes what.<G> I did a audio on the
simple 7 step model, which if anyone would care to listen to...explains my
take on what roles people, business and network relationships take
on--albeit from a business perspective versus a mathematical one.
