Phi Beta Iota:  This simple graphic has enormous implications for the evolving craft of intelligence (decision-support).  When considered in relation to absolute scale limits on the depletion of non-renewable resources, and the absolute valuation of diversity of life forms, it recasts how “truth” should be considered in the context of the whole, distinguishing between truth for the whole versus truth for the individual and truth for the nation-centric collective.  This is a variation of the discovery made by Robert Steele when he co-founded the Marine Corps Intelligence Center and led the study on planning and programming factors for expeditionary operations in the third world: the threat changes depending on the level of analysis.  This degree of sophistication and accomplished holistic reasoning is not yet present in any intelligence community that we know of.
