Tiago's insight:

We’re not just in a crisis in politics or economics; we’re in a crisis with ourselves. The way we use natural resources is based on our economic system, which is closely related to our social values, which directly affect our psychological and emotional systems and all our actions. What we see in the world is a reflection of who we are. You cannot separate what’s happening in the world, and what’s happening within people. So we’re not just in crisis in politics, or in economics. Human beings are now in crisis with themselves.

—Jairon Cuestra

The Lives of Sociable Spiders

The Lives of Sociable Spiders | connectivity | Scoop.it

"A new study suggests that predictable social lives accentuate individual quirks and personal styles in spiders that live in groups....But about 25 arachnid species have swapped the hermit’s hair shirt for a more sociable and cooperative strategy, in which dozens or hundreds of spiders pool their powers to exploit resources that would elude a solo player."

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, May 13, 2014 2:18 PM

Darwin's defenders, who preached "survival of the fittest" and elevated competition to the role of supreme driving force in evolution, knew less about complex interdependencies and cooperative arrangements than we know today. Instead of competing for scarce resources, species from bacteria to arachnids to fishes and mammals sometimes team up to create an abundance of key resources.
