PHILOSOPHY, VALUES, PRINCIPLES
We live in a time of rapidly increasing complexity and profound global change. We are pushed by necessity and pulled by opportunity. The push is a growing systems crisis, evident in the breakdown of financial institutions, climate disruption, resource depletion, unsustainable populations, and more. The pull is the opportunity to rise to a new level of human maturity, collective coordination, and freedom. The combined push and pull at a global scale makes this a time of profound turning and transformation for humanity.
The emergence of global challenges–ecological, sociological, and economic–are rooted in an existential crisis of psychology, perspective, and meaning. Resolving this crisis of meaning is a meta-solution for global systemic change and human prosperity.
Large scale global challenges can be overcome by scaling higher order Collective Intelligence, and realizing collective sense making.
Top down design for engendering greater Collective Intelligence can involve applications and innovations in information technology. Advents in IT areas such as Blockchain, Data Science, and Artificial Intelligence can lead to broader, deeper, and more coherent connectivity between individuals across collectives.
Bottom up design for engendering greater Collective Intelligence can involve optimizing the health, wealth, and integrity of individuals. Healthy Individuals lead to healthy collectives, and healthy and coherent collectives lead to the emergence of greater Collective Intelligence.
Increasing Collective Intelligence can evolve humanity into something like a global super-organism, and catalyze the co-creation of a thriving planetary society.
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
