z Other Thinking Processes
The “z” is just in the title to place the page at the bottom of the alphabetical group.
The Theory of Constraints (T.O.C.) thinking processes, along with the Jewish Talmud thinking process, are the original core of the thinking process this church initiative uses for its third main principle, namely, a high-quality thinking process to adapt past and current reports of direct communications from God to current circumstances. The T.O.C. is a general-purpose expression of the science and physics process for application to any area life while the Jewish Talmud process adapts past reported ancient expressions of God’s will (the Torah) to create newer law more relevant to newer circumstances. That is very similar to Pillar 3 of this church, the only two differences being that (1) this church has someone, me, Tom McMullen, reporting that God tells him he wants many, ideally all, people to hear directly from him and add current expressions of God’s will to the adaptation process and (2) that the Theory of Constraints (T.O.C.) provides an explicit form of logic process and diagramming for use in the analysis and discussion process.
The Islamic Ijtihad thinking process is something I admire and support and seems similar to the Talmud process when it’s used for religious law and similar to both Talmud and T.O.C. when it’s used for everyday issues by everyday people.
Other thinking processes I am very much influence by are the Rickover thinking and operations process (Admiral Hyman Rickover, founder of the United States naval nuclear propulsion program) and the est thinking and life management process (Werner Erhard).
Others I’ve sampled and admired from afar and would like to know more about myself in order to relate them to what this church does are the Buddhist, Taoist, Confucianist, and Shinto thinking processes.
I have to assume there’s one or more known among the over a billion Hindu and other groups in India, but I have no knowledge of them at all except to know their epic stories are the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, with the famous Bhagavad Gita with Krishna advising Prince Arjuna to carry out his role being one part of the latter.
