Anne Caspari's curator insight, March 4, 2013 1:21 AM

right questions, not quite getting the answers together yet. What if the solution was not only in evolving world views, but at the same time in involutionary processes to solve deep rooted (different "direction"; all the way down) issues in our relationship to nature...? 

Kim Davis's comment, March 12, 2013 11:42 PM
Sustainability: the concept self-aware species invent as they eventually realize individualistic short-term aims of their members conflict with collective organizational long-term aspirations, once key resources get exhausted and their costs, as well as waste, rise above tipping points.

This is a normal stage of consciousness training in all species throughout the multiverse, as consciousness evolves from pre-conscious single organism to post-conscious multi-organism. The feedback mechanism is designed in such a way that as the challenge rises from deviations that are the fruit of individual egoism, the negative outcomes these deviations create act as forces to curb self-absorption, thus creating an awareness space in which solutions stemming from a collaborative system respectful of the web of life (including of its self-aware members) can eventually flourish.

Thus has a higher-level consciousness the ability to collectively form from - and beyond - its individualistic roots.

How should we organize ourselves in the 21st century? | 2020 Climate Leadership Campaign | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

There is now a brief window of opportunity – a moment outside ‘normal’ time – where a network of social movements can actively form and radically reshape the world. To do so successfully, future movements must consciously try to avoid two distinct fates: either the dissolution into a decentralised network of loose clusters of relatively isolated groups, movements and individuals – the fate of the summit-hopping phase of the movement of movements – or a decline towards a centralised network of cadres, which severely damaged the movement in the Sixties. Our lines of flight from these dead-ends consist in wilfully pushing ourselves to learn from successful networks and evolve towards a mature distributed network with abundant hubs and a powerful long tail: a movement with both mass participation and dynamic hubs of people and events, capable of evolving and responding rapidly to a fast-changing world.

Three Steps To Managing Transformative Sustainability Journeys | Sustainable Brands

Three Steps To Managing Transformative Sustainability Journeys | Sustainable Brands | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

I believe the challenges sustainable brands face today is adaptive: they requires us to undergo a transformative journey that helps us shift the way we see so that we can reframe our current reality and create a field for new opportunities to emerge. The question is: how can we successfully travel this path of change and increase the chances for innovative breakthroughs while minimizing the always-present risks of breakdowns and system disintegration?
