This is the sixth set of Axioms in the Axioms of Economics. There are two sections of Axioms included in this set. The first section includes the Axioms covering Ownership. The second section includes the Axioms covering Producers; the Use of Their Money and Production.
We are going into the subject of Ownership. The subject of Ownership will be expanded upon. There is far more to the subject of ownership than what is commonly practiced today.
Ownership; is the act, state or right of possessing something. (New Oxford American Dictionary)
The concept of mental spaces will be introduced here.
We have discussed Producers producing commodities, trades, goods and services. Producers produce these commodities, trades, goods and services by using their mental spaces. The mental space is used to create models of the commodities, trades, goods and services the Producers intend to create.
Models are a three-dimensional representation of a person or thing or of a proposed structure, typically on a smaller scale than the original. (New Oxford American Dictionary)
The mental models are three-dimensional representations of commodities, trades, goods and services the Producers intend to create. These models are converted or replicated into physical environment as commodities, trades, goods and services.
Included in the subject of Ownership is found the subject of Spaces. The first space individuals usually are aware of is the environment around them. It appears to be the obvious and prominent space. It is common to all of us.
The environment around us is the space we use when exchanging communications, ideas, perceptions and products among ourselves.
There are spaces in existence other than the environment around us. Each individual has a mental space. This space is unique to each individual. Individuals use this mental space to create models of the things they want to create in their physical environment.
Interfacing spaces; this is when Individuals overlap their mental space with the production space in the surrounding environment. This overlapping takes place during production.
Interfacing spaces; also, is an area of one’s Individual Space overlapped with other Individual’s Spaces while creating a product in the environment around them. This overlapping takes place during group production.
Individual spaces have been invalidated for most of us. They have been pushed down and invalidated to the point of almost total unawareness of them. Most people can find their individual space when they are reminded of its existence. The awareness of the individual space has almost totally been relegated to the process we call, “daydreaming.” Even the mental process of “daydreaming” in our individual space, has been frowned upon. In many cases people aren’t aware they are daydreaming when they are. Daydreaming is an example of individuals operating in their space. Fantasizing is another method of operating in their spaces. The individual owns his daydreams and fantasies. The individual could, and in many cases, individuals do, replicate their daydreams and fantasies in the physical environment. In most cases they own or should own what they create or transfer into the physical environment.
Using Individual Spaces
Individuals use their space daily and almost continuously. They use it when they think and dream. They use it when they solve problems. They use it when they communicate through the use of speech and when they communicate via writing. They use it at work while performing their jobs. Artists use it. Musicians use it. Everyone on this planet uses it. They use it for the most minor detail to the most major detail during production and during living. They use it to operate their bodies. They operate their bodies, coordinating the body motions, while using a mental model as a reference. This coordinating the body motions with the mental model is used while producing an intended commodity, trade, good or service. This individual space process is done very rapidly by most individuals, instantaneously. Most individuals aren’t aware they are doing this activity.
During the process of production, the individual’s space is first used to create a model of the commodity, trade, good or service. Individuals replicate the models from their space into the physical environment. The replication of the model into the physical environment is done by the individual interfacing his space with the physical environment. When there is more than one Producer involved in the production process, each individual interfaces their space with each other’s individual space and with the physical environment.
Spaces and Ownership
Where does this space theory relate to the concept of Ownership? Of course, it is self-evident that everything an individual creates in the individual’s space, while interfacing with the physical environment, the individual owns. We could also say; everything the individual creates in the physical universe, while interfacing with the physical environment, the individual also owns. When the individual creates with a group of other individuals the individual owns that part of what he creates in the final product. This is how ownership works into all of what I have been writing here.
The subject of ownership can be fairly abstract. By abstract we mean existing in thought or as an idea but not having a physical universe or concrete existence. The reason Ownership can be abstract is that Ownership involves many spaces. Ownership involves the interfacing of many spaces during the process of production.
- A Producer owns that which has been produced or created by that Producer.
- Producers have the full right to 100 percent of their production.
- The Producers who produce the organization own the organization.
- A Producer owns that percentage of an organization he has produced.
- All expansion in an organization belongs to those Producers who created the expansion.
- Ownership with production activity does receive reward. The production of the owner is what is rewarded.
- Ownership with non-production activity does not receive reward, only production receives reward.
- Ownership with counter-production activity does not receive reward, only production receives reward.
- An owner who is producing should be rewarded for his production. The owner should not be rewarded for his ownership under any circumstances.
- An individual should not be rewarded for having money or ownership. The individual has received the reward for production and that was the money. This rewarding an individual for having money or ownership is the action of rewarding someone for being rewarded.
- Ownership in itself is reward for production.
- A Producer owns the value, energy, wealth, capital and power he creates.
- Holding land or space out of production is counter to the prosperity of the individual, family, society and mankind.
- A Producer has the right to produce on land or space owned by another individual or individuals who are not using the space or land for production. There would have to be an agreed upon exchange between both parties.
- The Producers are the creators of the existence of the Organization.
- Each Producer has mental space and uses this space when creating the production of commodities, trades, goods and services.
- An Organization is composed of interacting interfacing individual spaces.
- An Organization exists exclusively from the existence of the spaces of the individuals interfacing in that Organization.
- All producing individuals hold Ownership in an Organization by holding ownership in their space where it interfaces with the space of the Organization.
Producers; the Use of Their Money and Production
- Producers have the full right to use their money however they choose in a prosperous thrust.
- Producers do not have the right to use their production or money in a counter prosperous thrust. This action is destructive to the individual, family, society, mankind and the environment.
- Producers use money units to capture the value, energy, wealth, capital and power they create through the production of commodities, trades, goods and services.
- Producers transfer the value, energy, wealth, capital and power into money units when they market their commodities, trades, goods and services on the Open Market.
