Ontonix - Complex Systems Management, Business Risk Management

Ontonix - Complex Systems Management, Business Risk Management | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
Ontonix has established a radically innovative complexity-based approach to understanding and managing risk. Excessive complexity is a formidable source of exposure and vulnerability hence it must be measured and monitored.

 

A growing and evolving system increases its complexity over time (see for example Earth's biosphere) but the important thing is to stay away from critical complexity. This is because close to critical complexity all systems become uncertainty-dominated and possess very feeble and unstable structure.

Will Markets Survive the End of Growth?

Will Markets Survive the End of Growth? | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it

"Is the end of growth the end of markets? The end of capitalism? Most definitely not. We will still need competition, we will still want ideas and innovation to flourish and we will want capital allocated as efficiently as possible. Markets are good at all those things."

 

New article by Paul Gilding ("The Great Disruption") which shows that post-oil and post-growth thinking is still struggling big time with the question of the balance between "state" and "market". Phrases like: we need to accept the earth's limits "as absolute boundaries of the market system" are unhelpful. We need much more sophisticated blueprints of how a just society could produce and consume within ecological and energy limits.

Stress Illness: New Findings Reveal How Stress Impacts the Brain | LinkedIn

We must routinely take the active steps – exercise, meditation, journaling, etc. – in order to reduce the damaging effects of stress. But research like this helps us to understand the mind-body connection that much more. It help us to understand what is literally happening to our bodies when we “stress out”. And in so doing, we may find even better ways of dealing with the stress that swirls all about us.

Thrive: The Story is Wrong but the Spirit is Right « Charles Eisenstein

Thrive: The Story is Wrong but the Spirit is Right « Charles Eisenstein | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it

The quest to create a better world through conquering evil lies at the heart of civilization as we know it. Originating in the earliest agricultural civilizations, the concept of evil first applied to weeds, wolves, locusts, hail storms, and other natural phenomena that were, before agriculture, merely parts of an interdependent whole, and not the enemies of mankind.

Elaine Pagels on the Book of Revelation

Elaine Pagels on the Book of Revelation | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it

Perhaps what most strikes the naïve reader of the Book of Revelation is what a close-run thing the battle is.When God finally gets tired of waiting it out and decides to end things, the back-and-forth between sea monsters and Jesus is less like a scouring of the stables than like a Giants-Patriots Super Bowl. Perhaps what most strikes the naïve reader of the Book of Revelation is what a close-run thing the battle is. When God finally gets tired of waiting it out and decides to end things, the back-and-forth between dragons and serpents and sea monsters and Jesus is less like a scouring of the stables than like a Giants-Patriots Super Bowl. It seems that Manichaeanism—bad god vs. good god—is the natural religion of mankind and that all faiths bend toward the Devil, to make sense of God’s furious impotence. A god omniscient and omnipotent and also powerless to stop evil remains a theological perplexity, even as it becomes a prop of faith. It gives you the advantage of clarity—only one guy worth worshipping—at the loss of lucidity: if he’s so great, why is he so weak

Very interesting essay on the Ethical Corporation website looking at trade-offs when companies move to more corporate sustainability.

 

The essay concludes that there is indeed an optimal level of sustainability for companies but that in the future this level will be increasing.
