I’m trying to understand Production as OS Problem through Query System information. But the Definition and Context box seems talk about different concepts. Let me explain:
Production is defined by Dramatica as: “a process that determines potential”. The long definition explicitly states that this is a kind of reasoning: “Almost like deduction in reverse, Production arrives at a future truth by limiting out what can not happen, rather than arriving at a present truth by limiting out what cannot be. Anything remaining when the impossible is ruled out has potential.”
This suggests to me that Production is about dreaming big based on little evidence: as long as it’s not impossible, it can happen (something that would fit well with the kind of story I’m looking to write).
However, in Context, the examples presented take Production in a more common sense (in this case, in the sense of producing something): “For example, an inspired comedian’s over-production of clever ideas stalls the schedule of a movie with constant improvements; an atrophying men’s club’s lack of production of new services for the community robs them of purpose”
It seems to me that Definition and Context talk about different things. After all, what is Production and what would Production as OS Problem look like?
