The system world is the world of election, governance, rules and regulation, taxes, performance, services. It is a relevant component (on the highest level) of the City Ecosystem and therefore part of the City Codex. The chosen colour is Pantone® Jet Black, because of the association with the mineraloid Jet, which has an organic origin, being derived from decayingwood under extreme pressure. So the colour has it roots in the living world but because of its structure is now symbolising the system world.
The living world is the world of daily life, work and love. The world of personal and public values and lifestyles. The chosen colour Pantone® Snow White symbolises the virginity, dynamics, creativity, self expression, consciousness in the living world. What is stronger than seeing one’s own footprints in the purity of the driven snow. Proof of life in its simplest form.
The system world and the living world can be integrated in an optimal coherent situation. Individuals, organisations and natural ecosystems live in harmony with their governing systems vice versa. Or they can be completely separated. No interaction, no connection, no coherent situation. Individuals, organisations and natural ecosystems live separated from their governing systems. The so called system world does not address the needs and wills in the living world.
