To govern reflectively enough to redefine the verb:govern, i.e. to put control verbs directly up to question using the same method as other verb/noun/type combinations, thus affecting organization protocols, is to govern reflexively. To be reflexive in this context has other implications however than control of the system:
- To govern reflexively in a strictly online service requires a democratic domain and P2P protocols so a participatory democracy can develop. A Lowest Troll will be required as there is no other formal organization protocol to provide authority, e.g. embodimentwiki.org. Such systems may become fully reflexive but cannot become ultra-reflexive because the goals, mindsets and transcendance of users is out of scope.
- To govern reflexively in private sector applications requires ultra methods - these are especially applicable to 24x7 global distributed operations of various kinds, e.g. software industry, finance industry. While real lives are affected, this can be only a limited test of ultra-reflexive methods because it has no power to verb:coerce.
- To govern reflexively in the public sector requires citizens to be directly supported by OPIF and C2C protocols designed by ethical trolls to steer their discourse according to an ethic, e.g. lp.greenparty.ca. To spread this to the legal polity requires open party discipline in at least one political party so that there is a choice to accept or reject these methods, and some pressure also to keep refining them. The open politics in force ruleset a necessary but not sufficient pre-requisite.
