    The proper way of breaking a rule is to transform it. The comparison of academic concepts with others that are not framed in standards is present in all areas of professional work. Achieve often tacit agreement unite modes and let them be, is the best strategy to grow. The history of our civilization has left us many names of men and women who have broken rules, to transform them into successful ways to carry out a task. These successes always have finished replacing the previous rules, and have positioned themselves as the new regulations for the action. If we were to graph this growth process, we would do with spirals out and forward, where the fall of the line represents the debacle of the old rule and the rise would be the transformation towards a new more effective standard.

    It is clear, the process is circular, has the necessary setback for the analysis of change, and the inevitable advance of doing. Critico-analitico thought vs. synthetic thinking the Renaissance and humanism they have been at its philosophical movements which led to the encyclopedic an relevant in all professions and trades. Even until the 19th century, the critico-analitico thought was the most successful for the action. In the mid-19th century emerges a way of new, symmetrical to the circumstances, thinking that in opposition to the critico-analitico thought resolves the action in a more simple way. This coincides with the massive emergence and expansion in the 20th century, the Oriental culture and minimalist, as with the appearance of large scale technological advances.

    Today is essential to synthesize, i.e., minimize the ideas in concepts simple and linear. Synthetic thinking unites technology that tries to facilitate all activities everyday and working with the way of resolving them successfully: fast and good. Myth in the synthetic thinking, the ways to achieve the objectives do not have the importance that critico-analitico thought gave them. From this point of view, arises a myth, which is to think that who achieves success does so by arrangement or money. While these two factors may influence to some extent, what really defines how successful action is the result of this and the rapidity with which it is reached.

    The history of Persian carpet goes back to 2,500 years ago. The Persians were pioneers in the manufacture of carpet between the ancient civilizations and generated a high level of perfection through many centuries of creativity. Skill in the manufacture of carpets was transmitted of parents to children, who also developed this skill and transmitted it is, in turn, to their own offspring as a sort of well kept family secret. To study the history of Persian carpet should follow the path of the culture of one of the greatest civilizations development. At the beginning, carpets were an item of necessity since they were used as covers for soil and inputs in order to protect the nomads of the cold weather. Most beautiful rugs later, attracted new and different proprietary Kings and nobles, who saw them as signs of wealth, distinction and prestige-.European paintings dated between 1350 and 1450 carpets can be obtained by lot and very good information about the drawings of the carpets of that era (heraldic birds, animals fighting, a tree between two birds and animals), probably copied from Byzantine fabrics. Some of the most beautiful carpets made during the 16th and 17TH centuries were woven in the city of Usak, to the West of Turkey, which was one of the main centers of the Court of the Ottoman Empire. Typical carpets Usak artisans wove were prayer, drawings of stars, medallion, of birds and of lines and dots. It must be said that Turkmen carpets are recognizable by the typical dark red and by the surface defined by a single repeated motive: thus are the bukara (with rows of octagons with framed in white and alternate mixtilineo contour with oscurisimas crosses) and subtypes pendeh and khiva, the yemud (continuous motif of diamonds), the tekke (octagons simplified) and the afgan (Octagon in whose centre stands the cross and clover).
