The central theme of this monograph is that a unifying framework informs the human activity of design across all domains. With few exceptions, each idea in this work applies to graphics, environments, products, software, services, machines, and buildings. I dream that the design process could be integral to the primary, secondary, and post-secondary education of all individuals in modern society. This work is an attempt to lay out some of the ideas that would form that education.
