The earth is not a disk, it is not round, but it is kind of round.
Since years we are trying to find visuals reflecting our mindset, a mindset of complexity emerging from infinite loops, feedback loops, cycles and circuits, all interrelated, intertwined in a multilevel manner. This is how complexity emerges in my view. But here a philosophical debate starts.
Without the roots of trees, without the immense network of myceles, without the soil of organic matter enriched with a huge variety of bacteria, parasites and other sorts of microbes that permanently clean up the mess we leave behind us, our globe would have fallen apart since long time.
At this point I don’t want to get involved into this messy blurry dirty discussion of climate change and global warming. Too many interest groups collide, parasite and benefit from this narrative full of contradictions characterized by incompleteness.
The conclusions drawn are more emotional than scientific, far from the real and farer from the truth, a term I truly dislike. I am happy, if I get the simple message across to you that life is complex in the above mentioned sense of the word.
Please, understand that there is not one unidirectional relation, connection, one name it, in a living organism. It’s all about relations, multidirectional interactions, we have only a very fragmented and incomplete picture of. That organisms can run smoothly all along the path of their life, balance is key, and balance can only be achieved by regulation.
Here we go. This is in brief our mindset and the trajectory all our work is traveling on.
Our world of images we newly invented mirrors this mindset: you may see lenses, dumplings, the earth, it doesn’t matter. Whatever we see we cut out parts. We shall never be able to perceive the whole.
How we connect the fragments of incompleteness is always a question that stretches out between mindsets of belief or science.
