- Consider any change
- Mark the system
- Mark the surroundings
- See the changes brought about in the surroundings (initial and final) of the system. This is where the relevant inferences/observations/…etc. will lie.
This is a general scheme for hovering around relevance, in any scene.
1) If I give you my book, it won’t remain with me.
Change – book given.
System – Book
The surrounding is your hand (palm) which is now empty. This (the underlined part) are the relevant inferences/observations/…etc. in this scene.
2) Heating a solution in a beaker changes its colour. Beaker turns warm.
Change – solution changes colour
System – solution
The beaker is the surroundings, which is now warm. This (the underlined part) are the relevant inferences/observations/…etc. in this scene.
3) Cat jumps out of the bucket and there is a mouse nearby outside. Bucket turns empty / free for use, and the mouse gets eaten.
Change – cat jumps out
System – cat
Surroundings – The bucket is a surrounding which becomes empty / free for use, and the mouse is a surrounding which gets eaten. These (the underlined parts) are the relevant inferences/observations/…etc. in this scene.* NOTE : The changes in the system i.e. what you are considering, are very obvious – you see them directly in front of you in what you are considering. Hence they arent mentioned in the strategy. (Here, the systems are – book, solution and cat).
