THE HEART BEACON CYCLE: COMMON
BUILDING BLOCKS: TIME / SYNTAX
#Bitcoin blockchain blocks, agents, motes, bots, web crawlers, heartbeat, beacon are all metaphors for intervals, time
cycles available to process / not process SYNTAX.
META DATA IS GATHERED, GET-PUT BY THE SYSTEM "HEARTBEAT" THAT IS A NETWORK "PING" THAT USES RESERVED TIME
CYCLES TO MOVE CHANGES IN STATE DURING MICRO-CYCLES. DATA GATHERED OR GET-PUT BY THE SYSTEM HEARTBEAT IS MOVED INTO A TEMPORARY
STORAGE AREA SUCH AS A CACHE, FILE FOLDER AWAITING PICKUP, FILTERING, AGGREGATION TYPICALLY BY A PUBLISH-SUBSCRIBE PROCESS.
DATA SYNC DELTAS ARE SENT DIRECTLY TO DASHBOARD OR APPLICATION "APPLIQUE" OVERLAYS IN NET CENTRIC WARFARE SPEAK
-- NOT TO DATA FUSION CENTERS. THIS PROCESS IS CALLED THE "BLUE LIVE FEED" or "DATA INJECTOR".
The internet is time cycles available to process instructions, commands etc. It follows
that the key to achieving consistency, interoperability across seemingly diverse technologies and establish common ground
among groups using various internet technologies is to focus on the two main common building blocks -- time and syntax. If
everyone using the Internet of Things set sensor reporting cycles to the maximum rate, the network may saturate. Too frequent
reports are distracting. Too slow reports are not relevant. Operational discipline of time cycles is an imperative and establishment
of a common syntax lexicon repository is needed. Displaying "The Grail" -- Single Integrated Operational Picture SIOP
after the fact is problematic -- especially if many different data management techniques are in use. Cycles in time -- the
"heartbeat" as opposed to a data ping that has no conventions for data other than the ping itself is the internet's
ultimate common tool, method, mechanism..
