I am interested in pretty much everything – science, religion/spirituality, psychology, sociology, education, the arts, development, emergence, self-organising systems, the independent investigation of truth – everything that relates to the generation and useful application of knowledge for the development of humanity.
The thing that fascinates me most right now is the search for ways we can learn to live together. There is so much unnecessary suffering in the world and a large amount of it is caused by our failure to recognise that humanity is one. Our oneness is a biological and sociological fact but as we still persist in seeing ourselves as divided we don’t know how to operate the system that is humanity.
I believe that our most urgent need right now is to learn how to function as one entity – one organism. As human systems are emergent and a properly functioning emergent system far exceeds the sum of its parts who knows what we can achieve – what the world will be like – when we start to recognise and work the system we have? I find that exciting beyond words!
At the moment I am working on trying to understand the concept of reciprocity – examining what it means and trying to identify how it works. If you’re interested I’d love your input…
