In a world of growing uncertainty and mounting performance pressure, it’s understandable that resilience has become a very hot topic. Everyone is talking about it and writing about it. We all seem to want to develop more resilience.

The Radical Technology of Christopher Alexander - Metropolis Magazine

The Radical Technology of Christopher Alexander - Metropolis Magazine | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

Chances are, you have heard of Christopher Alexander because of his most famous book on architecture, A Pattern Language. 

 

Alexander, the mathematician, was always concerned with the processes by which parts transform into wholes. He wants to know how we are implementing this part-whole synthesis; how nature does it; and especially, where we, in our own human version, might be getting it wrong. This is the key to an important realization about natural systems and how they generate form — one that, as Alexander has long noted, is distinct from how we humans typically generate form. And this is not a mere philosophical matter of humans being different from nature, or “having culture.” It’s a question of how we humans can also have a technology that is actually more complex, resilient, and sustainable — quite literally, more life-like.

Hamilton: Panarchy - resilience cycle of living systems

Hamilton: Panarchy - resilience cycle of living systems | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it
I used to be rather resistant to the whole concept of sustainability, because I felt that it was rather not a metabolic process, rather static, rather heavy-bounded, in its first definitions. And then I discovered the whole resilience cycle.

I also find the resilience cycle appealing because of the link to natural processes.  Why must we mechanize things we want to emulate rather than observe and imitate the natural cycles that abound and support us?

the natural cycles are around mechanical more than what you think.. but they are in a chaotic way not an ordrerd one ... ;)
humans must find their own system coz, for now, they have an ultra power of destruction and cleaning... Imitating nature is a myth.

and also, mechanics are our creative tools and extensions .. far more thought than in a million death insectoïd nature top survive.. Strategies are so complex coz we consider evry human as important. nature, destroys all, and in fact the best too.. but in luck and time, we can believe in nature.. not for humans too.
