Prof. Peter Kruse?

Prof.Dr. Peter Kruse (1955-2015) was a German psychologist, brain researcher, expert in the complexity processing of intelligent networks, managing director of Nextpractice.

An important insight of Prof.

Dr. Peter Kruse was:
The Internet has redefined the rules of power.

Kruse saw the
three-phase dynamic development of social networks

  1. Access boom – fascination of the new virtual medium
    “I’m in it!” Boris Becker’s slogan for provider AOL, 1999
    From the late 1990s
  2. Usage boom – Rapid spread of social networks
    Google 1998, Wikipedia 2001, LinkedIn 2003, Xing 2003, Facebook 2004, YouTube 2006, Twitter 2006, Apple smartphone 2007, Quora, June 2009, Tinder, 2012
    From the mid-00s
  3. Waves of movement – Self-organized direct determination of citizens, shareholders and customers
    Political activation among active social media participants
    Movements (incl.

Votes) question voter fraud, evaluate large corporations, lead to the removal of dictators and title fraudsters, name appearances, demand being.

About Creativity

  • “Harmonious systems are stupid systems.

In nature, patterns of order always arise out of contradiction, not harmony. If you want to have really complex ordering patterns, please increase the diversity in the system. Give lateral thinkers a chance.Allow the troublemakers. Build networks.”
Peter Kruse, Minute 1:50, May 2007

  • “The systems are bigger than our budgets.
  • If we don’t let the systems work, then we’re working against the systems, and then it’s goingto be expensive.’
    Peter Kruse, May 2008

  • [Conclusion summarized “When the value patterns are transparent and people get involved, huge dynamics rock up by themselves.”
    Peter Kruse, May 2008
  • “The social software of Web 2.0 is an attack on the established rules of power and enforces a fundamental rethink.
  • [… The social web is an avalanche that is already thundering to valley.”
    Peter Kruse, April 2010

  • “The Internet is a challenge for anyone who wants to have power.
  • The Internet questions the formation of domination power.
    Whenever someone wants to keep a position of power,
    鈥?hierarchies are called into question,
    鈥?all possible experts are called into question,
    鈥?all sorts of guardians are questioned,
    because there are quite a few ways to outsmart and circumvent the measures.
    In the net you cannot be powerful by sheer self-will.Only through excellence is it possible to be powerful.
    The decisive factor is the empathic affection, not the mindless coercive power.”
    Peter Kruse, April 2010

    The value level determines the behavior level.

    • “The big request [to politicians and entrepreneurs is: be as close as possible to these systems [the social networks on the Internet] .

    Then you get changes at the value level that only become visible at the behavior level.”
    Peter Kruse, July 2010

    Empathy is the basic competence of the new paradigm.

    A high degree of empathy with the dynamics of these systems allows me to react in a timely manner.
    If you are thinking about future progrose, please do not believe that with a nonlinear system you are still able to make long-term progrose for the future.This won’t do. [… The only form of prognosis is empathy in the value patterns today.”
    Peter Kruse, July 2010

    Basic thesis: Medial power shift
    Positive revolutionary changes due to the Internet and media shift of power in society from provider to demandr.

    • “Power sits with the requester, not with the provider.
      And if you are not willing, I need patience.”
      Peter Kruse, July 2010

    Data analysis and evaluation of pattern formations in the virtual network

    • “The qualitative rating [through the classic media) does not get you delivered over the Internet.

    The Internet is highly dynamic, highly mobilizing and highly networked, but the evaluation section on the Internet is simply not yet adequately trained. We remain bound by editorial work, [… which should turn to the basic dynamics of the networks in order to understand where the journey is headed.”
    Peter Kruse, July 2010

  • “In recent years, we have been insanely increasing connectivity in the world.
  • We have done everything we can to ensure that effects no longer have range limits. As a decision-maker, I am in a situation where I have to answer for things whose reach I find difficult to account for.”
    Peter Kruse, May 2011

  • “As long as the Internet is there, you can no longer prevent people from participating.
  • The Internet is the permanent invitation to get involved.”
    Peter Kruse, May 2011

    Shifting the balance of power / belief systems / cultural patterns 鈥?from provider to demandr
    The answer to external complexity is to get involved in a vulnerable way to the risk of self-dynamic processes in an internallydifficult complexity.

    • “The belief systems are still very much anchored in the linear realm.

    The idea of communicative power in networks is completely misunderstood.In the network, you are communicatively powerful only if you generate resonance. I am only powerful when power is given to me.In management, however, you have the idea of being powerful out of will. This means that if you want to drive a brand forward communicatively, then increase the advertising pressure. The big issue was presence and attention.You can no longer buy it on the Internet.”
    Peter Kruse, May 2011

    Channeling the complexity of the Internet and the modern world

    • New insight: Intuitive selection is the best solution.
      Attention: The framework conditions of intuition must correspond to the current state of development of the world.
      Votes with many voices(collective intuition) serve to find the truth in a more reliable way.
    • Recommendation
      鈾?stay awake.

    鈾?branching out with everything and all.
    鈾?use collective intuition.

    Peter Kruse – Future Congress (one year before his death)

    • “The possibilities of the future are defined by the cultural dynamics of today.

    The future is not measurable. But spaces of values or cultural spaces that develop their dynamics today are decisive for the actions of the people tomorrow.”
    “We are still thinking about the individual and not about the social patterns…. The leading science of the next few years is not neurophysiology, but clearly cultural science, because otherwise we cannot understand and manage the complexity.”
    Peter Kruse, Minute 7:36 / 13:49, Interview June 2014
