Maybe I'm shifting around too much, not conforming to standard, or simply unsuitable. Where's the foundation? Platforms can be precarious. They are meant to be secure, solid, and able to handle performances of many kinds. But I'm finding it is more about cooperation. Platforms need you to perform (or conform) to a standard they support, and you need them to be solid and secure so you can perform. Imagine stepping from one paddleboard to another. As the weight shifts, the paddleboard platform is affected, and the balance is off, although the platform remains solid. This is of course unless there's some fancy footwork in play - so maybe, cooperation and agility are needed. Another thought is that one platform, however foundational and secure it might be, could crumble under the weight or influence of an unsuitable structure - there has to be compatible pairing. Beyond endless analogies, the point is that my platform is askew and everything seems a bit wobbly.
As you probably know, I play with tech terms as an overlay for personal experience and always check tech definitions for hidden insight. Here is PCmag.com's definition for platform. "A hardware and/or software architecture that serves as a foundation or base. Simple enough. Techopedia's explanation ventures further. "New standards-based interfaces and open interfaces allow application programs to run on multiple platforms. Additionally, software developers have developed new software tools that allow applications to run on multiple platforms. This has given rise to the terms cross-platform software and multi-platform software."
Once again, I've found it - the reason for the sense of wobble in my world. I knew the disruption was deep-seated, which caused me to consider the base of my structure. I have continued to pile things up - ideas, beliefs, dreams, imaginings, as well as must-do, standard performances onto one base. It hasn't been a smooth organization or blending, but more a clamoring about. Open interfaces, cross-platforms, multi-platforms are just what I need. I expect open-interfaces will welcome new ideas, beliefs, and dreams. Cross-platforms will encourage a creative commerce and communication within my own self-processing. Multi-platforms will be able to support new features, potentials, and possibilities. I'm set!
Yet, I wonder (on my new platform) - what if the world set new standards with open interfaces and multi-platforms? Would there be less wobble in the world, a new sense of stability? Would cross-platforms expand boundaries, beliefs, commerce, and cooperation? It would take some fancy footwork on multi-platforms!
Precarious, no doubt. Doable? I imagine it is.
