TOPIC ~ Whole Systems + Design Science

 Nature is a whole system. But also an economy, a family, a company, a community, or many other things, can be looked at as whole systems. A whole system view would include all the factors involved and examine how they relate to each other and how they work as a whole. To deal with a whole system we can't leave anything out as irrelevant.

Intuition is as important as rationality, we must address both scientific and artistic approaches, both material and spiritual needs, the small as well as the big, what we feel as well as what we think, what we perceive as well as what we imagine. Whole systems are dynamic, they change they move, they develop.

Frozen pictures of how things are supposed to be might do us no good, we need to deal with the live systems, whichever surprising directions that might take us in. There is no one authority in the field of whole systems. Luckily nobody has monopolized it by putting it into a standard curriculum defining what it IS. So, we all have the opportunity to discover together what whole systems are about. 

Systems thinking involves the use of various techniques to study systems of many kinds. In nature, examples of the objects of systems thinking include ecosystems - in which various elements (such as air, water, movement, plants, and animals) interact. In organizations, systems consist of people, structures, and processes that operate together to make an organization "healthy" or "unhealthy".

Whole Systems + Design Science News & Sources

Barbara Marx Hubbard | Foundation for Conscious Evolution

We are at an irreversible turning point in human history. Whether we choose evolution or extinction, everything will change. In the tumult of great disruption, millions of us are rising in a more universal, holistic, cosmic consciousness, seeking to fulfill our highest potential through joining together in co-creative action. The emerging worldview of conscious evolution provides us a purpose, pattern and process to bring forth a new future, a new world and a new humanity. The promise of Conscious Evolution is nothing less than the emergence of a universal humanity capable of guiding its own evolution into a future of unimaginable cocreativity.

The Equilibrium Project

It is clear that there are many of us who are ready for the shift to a more equitable, just and sustainable culture, so why aren't things changing? Why does our economy continue down a destructive path? Our research has shown that the policies and practices of the large corporations are the source of the major problems we face. They operate under a model that requires them to maximize profits without considering the human or ecological costs, and their influence reaches deeply into the fabric of our system, corrupting our governmental and legal processes. We created an equal but opposite strategy to overcome the specific obstacles presented by the entrenched corporate powers. The Equilibrium Project Five Phase Plan is guided by this strategy.

Power of the Sovereign Spirit | SuperConsciousness Magazine

For a growing number of people focusing on matters of consciousness, sacred knowledge and personal freedom, the reclamation of the word sovereign has become profoundly consequential. Within this paradigm, to recognize oneself as a sovereign being is to acknowledge one’s own total spiritual autonomy and unconditional entitlement to self‐determination. It is a primary avowal of oneself as a free and natural human being — not a serf, a subject, a corporate entity, or even a citizen. No persons or man‐made laws have any jurisdiction whatsoever over a sovereign being. This is all very alarming for any empire that secretly prefers its populace to feel toothless.

Tesla’s Sad Last Interview: “I’m a defeated man. I wanted to illuminate the whole earth.” | Science Vibe

I wanted to illuminate the whole earth. There is enough electricity to become a second sun. Light would appear around the equator, as a ring around Saturn. I am part of a light, and it is the music. The Light fills my six senses: I see it, hear, feel, smell, touch and think. Thinking of it means my sixth sense. Particles of Light are written note. O bolt of lightning can be an entire sonata. A thousand balls of lightning is a concert.. For this concert
