It is shown how “the power to transcend paradigms” – which has been identified as “the most
impactful way to intervene into systems” – can be radically augmented by a different approach to
information. Instead of updating a conventional “reality picture”, available insights are combined to
compose completely new highlevel
views or gestalts, which coexist
and coevolve
through a dialog
with one another and with the more detailed views. Polyscopy is described as a concrete
instantiation of this approach. The Holoscope online platform is outlined as an application of
polyscopy to enable (by illuminating the way) the global systemic transformation. This article is a
strategy proposal and an invitation, extended to the interested members of the systemic design
community, to take part in the transdiscipline we are developing around Holoscope, to evolve it
