‘Superorganisations’ – Learning from Nature’s Networks

‘Superorganisations’ – Learning from Nature’s Networks | Soul Fill | Scoop.it

Fritjof Capra, in his book ‘The Hidden Connections’ applies aspects of complexity theory, particularly the analysis of networks, to global capitalism and the state of the world; and eloquently argues the case that social systems such as organisations and networks are not just like living systems – they are living systems. The concept and theory of living systems (technically known as autopoiesis) was introduced in 1972 by Chilean biologists Humberto Maturana and Francisco Varela.

Dreaming, Depression, and How REM Sleep Regulates Negative Emotions

Dreaming, Depression, and How REM Sleep Regulates Negative Emotions | Soul Fill | Scoop.it

Dreams are not without sense, nor are they best understood to be expressions of infantile wishes. They are the result of the interconnectedness of new experience with that already stored in memory networks. But memory is never a precise duplicate of the original; instead, it is a continuing act of creation. Dream images are the product of that creation. They are formed by pattern recognition between some current emotionally valued experience matching the condensed representation of similarly toned memories. These Networks gives us a coherent sense of who we are.

How to Generate Good Ideas

How to Generate Good Ideas | Soul Fill | Scoop.it

This spring, we set out to answer the question “Where do good ideas come from?” in the form of a motion graphic that would serve as a companion piece for a course we developed for Columbia University’s graduate program in Information and Knowledge Strategy (Visualization of Information).

We quickly realized that perhaps we needed to reevaluate the basis of this question before we answered it. The notion that good ideas simply come to people out of the blue didn’t satisfy us because it didn’t give adequate credit to the creative enterprise of the individual or group. Good ideas aren’t simply lying around like seashells on a beach waiting for us to pick them up nor are they so random.

A Fuller Legacy - Wall Street Journal

A Fuller Legacy - Wall Street Journal | Soul Fill | Scoop.it

He has been called the Leonardo da Vinci of the 20th century—and his inventions remain influential today. R. Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) devoted himself to helping humanity through innovative design. He was granted, in all, 25 patents, most famously for the easy-to-assemble geodesic dome. "The Utopian Impulse: Buckminster Fuller and the Bay Area," at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art through July 29, presents photographs, drawings and models of his creations, along with local designs inspired by his philosophy. "In order to change an existing paradigm you do not struggle to try and change the problematic model," he said. "You create a new model and make the old one obsolete."

#Synchronicity: The Bridge between Matter and Mind

True synchronicities are more than mere chance occurrences. They are characterized by a sense of meaning and numinousness. They provide a bridge between inner and outer worlds, between our private thoughts and external, objective realities. To distinguish synchronicities from mere chance occurrences Carl Jung stressed that they must always involve "meaningful coincidence" that lie beyond any explanation involving causal links and connections. 

 

Synchronicities also act as markers in time, moments of transformation within a life that occur in chairos. Thus, while causality ties us to our past, synchronicities can link us to our future. One notable encounter took place between Carl Jung and the Wolfgang Pauli. This meeting of people from two very different worlds will be explored during the course, including the way it led to Pauli’s remarkable series of dreams which caused him to explore the relationship between psyche and matter and believe that the time was at hand for the "resurrection of spirit” within the world of matter.

Eagleman’s new book, Incognito, examines the unconscious part of our brains

 

He refers to consciousness as “a tiny stowaway on a transatlantic steamship, taking credit for the journey without acknowledging the massive engineering underfoot.” His book investigates this fact and its implications in decision making. He explains how the mind does enormous amount of work to reach the moment when you can gleefully say, “I just thought of something!” He emphasizes how we often take credit for our ideas without considering the “the vast, hidden machinery behind the scenes.”
