"...каждый класс систем, как и отдельные представители внутри этого класса, имеет особенности, облегчающие или затрудняющие изменение конкретной системы. Эти особенности определяются ресурсами: внутренними - теми, на которых строится система, и внешними - той средой и ситуацией, в которых находится система.

Khomenko, N.N. Elements of the General Theory of Powerful Thinking (OTSM). A Monologue for Sveta

A conversation with Svetlana Lavrentieva (Kucherova) (1964-2011) presumably took place in 1997 (the hardcopy is dated November 1998). The conversation was dedicated to the basic ideas and tools of the general theory of strong thinking. The emphasis was laid on the then new tools – the "element - feature - meaning" model and four basic problem-solving technologies (subsequently named OTSM-technologies of the 1st generation).
