Start with Universe | The Buckminster Fuller Institute | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

"I didn't set out to design a house that hung from a pole, or to manufacture a new type of automobile, invent a new system of map projection, develop geodesic domes, or Energetic-Synergetic geometry. I started with the Universe – as an organization of energy systems of which all our experiences and possible experiences are only local instances. I could have ended up with a pair of flying slippers.”

 

Today, modern technologies enable us to manipulate our surroundings in extraordinary ways. Yet they also isolate us, encouraging us to take the life-sustaining systems of our home planet for granted as endlessly exploitable resources and economic externalities. As specialized sciences increasingly seek to reduce existence to its component parts, the universe has seemingly been diminished to little more than physical properties, isolated interactions, and mathematical laws.

Evolutionary Leadership: The Embodiment of Systems Being - Rethinking Complexity

Evolutionary Leadership: The Embodiment of Systems Being - Rethinking Complexity | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

This idea that “everyone follows and everyone leads” is powerful because it captures the understanding that we are co-producers of our social realities. It is a reflection of the systemic nature of human relations: fluid, dynamic, reciprocal.

The Integral Ecology of Occupy | Integral Alive | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

What does the variety of parts that created the dynamic tension within the movement need to do so that a sustainable ecology can be created, that leads to the laying down of a new way of interacting with each other, a new life world that is comprehensive and yet recognises the developmental needs of individual and collectives as they flow and grow, whilst being aware that both individual and collectives have a right to remain not fixated at a level of growth but that their level of growth is seen as legitimate and authentic for them.

Imagine all the People | Advancing a Global Citizens Movement | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

How to change the world?  Dominant institutions have proved too timorous or too venal for meeting the environmental and social challenges of our time. Instead, an adequate response requires us to imagine the awakening of a new social actor: a coordinated global citizens movement (GCM) struggling on all fronts toward a just and sustainable planetary civilization.

Take 18 minutes of your day to watch this TEDtalk.

 

This TED talk is from Oxford in 2009, in which Janine gives examples of nature’s uncanny ability to perform complex tasks seamlessly and effortlessly. My favorite example, among many, is the Namibian Desert beetle’s evolutionary ability to collect water molecules from fog and turn it into drinking water for sustenance."

Extended Human Capacities | Program Areas | Research | Institute of Noetic Sciences | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

Ambitious program, wildly interesting: 

This program investigates the physical and psychophysiological bases of interconnectedness; noetic states of consciousness including nondual awareness, intuition, and presentiment; the effects of intention and attention on the physical world, including inanimate and living organisms; and human capacities that appear to extend beyond the conventional boundaries of space and time. By studying these phenomena, we seek a more comprehensive understanding of noetic experiences, the relationship between subjective and objective states, the nature of consciousness and the self, and the fabric of reality.

The God Particle, Quantum Entanglement, And The Holographic Universe

The God Particle, Quantum Entanglement, And The Holographic Universe | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

Quantum Entanglement is at the heart of understanding how significant events across the universe operate at the macro- and micro- level in split-second synchronicity despite considerable distance between them. We are beginning to see the entire universe as a holographically interlinked network of energy and information, organically whole. And as the mystic Rumi wrote around 800 years ago, "If you could get rid of yourself just once, the secret of secrets would open to you. The face of the unknown, hidden beyond the universe would appear on the mirror of your perception!

The Must Haves for a Sustainable 2050 | MAHB

The Must Haves for a Sustainable 2050 | MAHB | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

This report describes an 18-month World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) project, Vision 2050. The vision was formed by a technique of backcasting past events, to evaluate the plausibility of reaching a reasonably sustainable world in 2050. 
The project is causing major strategic re-thinking among the 200 member companies in the World Business Council, and has generated thoughtful discussions in proceedings conducted by the United Nations, OECD, and a variety of academic institutions. That WBCSD has led the way on this project is especially significant given that its member companies have $7 trillion in annual revenues (comparison: China’s GDP at current exchange rate is $5.8 trillion).

Epoch of Transformation: An Interpersonal Leadership Model for the 21st Century–Part 1

Epoch of Transformation: An Interpersonal Leadership Model for the 21st Century–Part 1 | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

The central argument of this paper rests on the following assumption: that the ability to reconcile the tension between a leader’s external and inner worlds is fundamental to 21st century leadership development. Put another way, the psychological health of the leader will be a key differentiator in coming years. The external world is characterised as being essentially uncertain, complex, and subject to constant change. These are also characteristics of the leader’s inner landscape.

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."
