How Social Movements Happen, Part I: Zenith, Ossification, Reality Shock, Emergence - EMERGENT CITIES

How Social Movements Happen, Part I: Zenith, Ossification, Reality Shock, Emergence - EMERGENT CITIES | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

"The new reality is first sensed by those few people in the system who interface with the outside world, but is essentially invisible to the people on the inside. The difficulty here is that the new reality threatens the order of the whole edifice - there is no sustainable adaptation that doesn't involve giving up key fundamental assumptions of the culture. Because reality does not negotiate, the system faces a transformative challenge.


What happens then? In a perfect world, everyone would immediately change their minds and reorganize to face the challenge. In actuality, most of the members enter a stage of reality denial where their mind filters out inconvenient truths. To a lucid observer, it's only a matter of time before the system collapses - it’s a walking dead. But to insiders, everything's peachy, thank you. Thus no significant rearrangement can be made."

# Brian Robertson talks briefly (8 min only :-)) about some aspects of his rather enlightened organizational governance model, Holacracy. It is an operating system that brings out the best of people at all levels and empowers an organization to respond rapidly and reliably to increasing complexity and insicurity in the market place; providing at the same time a rigorous structure that alows for alignment, interdependency and self-organization. Brilliant stuff. AC

CoCreatr: science of complex systems

CoCreatr: science of complex systems | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

The science of complex systems is transforming science and its role in society. Building on the traditional focus on the parts of systems, the new approach integrates the networks of relationships within and between systems. These relationships are responsible for the collective "emergent" behaviors we see in all physical, biological, socio-economic and technological systems.

Integral thinker Barrett Brown reflects on Occupy Wall Street protests. Offers an integral perspective our crumbling economic and political systems.

 

I have seen the awesomely powerful socio-technical forces, regimes, and technological and institutional and economic lock-in that keep the status quo alive. It is the sheer scale of it that most overwhelms my conceptual mind and individual heart.....A vision for where to go and who we want to become must arise that resonates across all those levels and systems. Those are some of the key conditions required. That sort of alignment is possible although it will likely take years and be messy....
