39 New Scientific Concepts That Everyone Should Understand

39 New Scientific Concepts That Everyone Should Understand | Change Management | Scoop.it

Ancient Buddhist stories tell of Mara, the Buddhist personification of temptation and distraction, approaching the Buddha. Each time, the Buddha simply says, “Mara, I see you,” and Mara flees. Because the Buddha knew Mara thoroughly, his act of clear seeing was effective in bringing freedom.

 

Anyone who practices mindfulness knows that there are forces in the mind that can make it difficult to be mindful. Beyond the 5 Hindrances (cloning, aversion, sleepiness, restless, and doubt), simple inherited beliefs about the nature of the world obscure our minds from seeing the truth. En route to discovering my authentic self, I'm working to cut through clouded perspectives with a little scientific inquiry.

 

Luckily, the editors over at Edge.org asked some of the most influential thinkers in the world — including neuroscientists, physicists and mathematicians — what they believe are the most important scientific concepts of the modern era.

 

The result is "This Will make You Smarter: New Scientific Concepts To Improve Your Thinking," a compilation of nearly 200 essays exploring concepts such as the "shifting baseline syndrome" and a scientific view of "randomness."

 

Be sure to wrap your head around these very important concepts:

Important Scientific Concepts for Truth + Beauty:

 

Cognitive Load

Our brains can only hold so much information at once before we stop retaining what we're learning. It's true. Accept it.

 

Contingent Superorganisms
"Biologists have joined with social scientists to form an altruism debunkery society" — pushing the belief that every altruistic act is done in self-interest. But a new concept, "contingent superorganisms," says that we live life on a few different hierarchies. The idea is that when you reach a higher level, you are willing to put the success of the group or a higher cause above one's own. This is what drives militaries, fire departments, and rock bands. Imagine how this could apply if we all acted for a common good on the planet.

 

Cycles

"All the 'magic' of cognition depends, just as life itself does, on cycles within cycles of re-current, reflexive information-transformation processes, from the biochemical scale within the neuron to the whole brain sleep cycle, waves of cerebral activity and recovery revealed by EEGs."

 

Deep Time

The belief that there is much more time before us than has already elapsed. This creates a more expansive view of the world and the potential of the universe. "Our sun is less than halfway through its life. It formed 4.5 billion years ago, but it's got 6 billion more years before the fuel runs out."

 

Failure Liberates Success

"Failure is not something to be avoided but something to be cultivated. ... It is a sign of weakness and often a stigma that prohibits second chances. ... Yet the rise in the West is in many respects due to the rise in tolerating failure.

 

Fixed Action Patterns

Some behaviors we exhibit we blame on instinct. But what we believe to be instinct may, in fact, be learned behavior over time — or a "fixed-action pattern." This has many implications, including the fact that, as rational creatures, we can change what we believe to be instinctive. "Given an understanding of our fixed-action pattern, and those of the individuals with whom we interact we — as humans with cognitive processing powers — could begin to rethink our behavior patterns."

 

Focusing Illusion

We often believe that a certain, different set of circumstances would dramatically change our lives. But the truth is, factors like income and health are less indicative of overall happiness.
"The mismatch in the allocation of attention between thinking about a life condition and actually living it is the cause of the focusing illusion."

 

Holism

"Holism is colloquially described as 'The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.' ... Perhaps the most impressive is that carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, phosphorus, iron, and a few other elements, mixed in just the right way, yield life. ... There is a kind of awesome synergy between the parts."
Just look at DNA, and other much broader systems, like cities, that operate only if each individual element does its part. "Holism does not come naturally. It is an appreciation not of the simple but of the complex."

 

Kaleidoscopic Discovery Engine

The greatest insights and inventions are the product of multiple people. It's never just a single person; everyone's standing on someone's shoulders.
"In hindsight we often find that if one scientist did not make a particular discovery, some other individual would have done so within a few months or years of the discovery. ... We are reluctant to believe that great discoveries are part of a discovery kaleidoscope and are mirrored in numerous individuals at once."
Let this be encouragement to collaborate and cooperate!

 

Positive SumGames

In zero-sum games, there's a clear winner and a clear loser. In positive-sum games, "everyone wins."
"In a positive-sum game, a rational, self-interested actor may benefit the other actor with the same choice that benefits himself or herself." Some competition will always be zero-sum — such as the competition for mates.

 

Pessimism Meta-induction
Theories from bygone eras have turned out to be wrong, we must assume that most of today's theories will eventually prove incorrect as well." Accepting the belief that many of our theories are "fundamentally provisional and quite possibly wrong," we can better listen to and empathize with others' ideas. Don't get attached to what you think you know!

 

Shifting Baseline Syndrome

The belief that what we perceive is what's normal, not taking into account the full extend of the past nor potential for future events. The syndrome is named after scientist Daniel Pauly, who said that each generation accepts "as a baseline the stock size and species composition that occurred at the beginning of their careers, and uses this to evaluate changes. When the next generation starts its career, the stocks have further declined, but it is the stocks at that time that serve as the new baseline."
Therefore what is "normal" is constantly changing.

 

Subselves and the Modular Mind

The belief that we have a single self is false. In fact, we have multiple identities, or "subselves." "Each of us has a set of functional subselves — one dedicated to getting along with our friends, one dedicated to self-protection, one dedicated to winning status, another to finding mates.

 

Umwelt

Umwelt is the idea that we blindly accept the reality of the world around us. "It would be useful if the concept of the umwelt were embedded in the public lexicon. It neatly captures that idea of limited knowledge, of unobtainable information, of unimagined possibilities."

 

Understanding these concepts not only allows you to improve your thinking, but more importantly, see the world as it truly is and possibly even liberate ourselves from cycles of chasing illusions and avoiding statistically improbable fears. So go melt your umwelt and chase your wildest dreams in a reality of true possibility!

Far more often than not, when an employee resigns and moves on, they do so because of the nature of their relationship with their boss.


Productivity, passion and profits, are benefits that flow to those business owners, who can build trust and earn the loyalty of their employees.

Lead Through Personality Complexity: Enough with Change Resistance Already!

Lead Through Personality Complexity:  Enough with Change Resistance Already! | Change Management | Scoop.it

People don't resist change, they resist being changed. Enough with regurgitating this awesome quote, start THINKING about what it means!

 

______________

...there’s no way to “ensure” everyone is progressing through the change at the same rate and same intensity.

______________

 

...Explore the symptoms of resistance:

 

[Try] using David Kersey’s Temperaments combined with the stages of Satir:

Satir Change Model Stages: Old Status Quo, Foreign Element, Chaos, Transforming Idea, Practice and Integration, New Status Quo.  This model explains how people respond to change physically, psychologically and logically. David Kersey’s Temperaments (Carl Jung based):
SP (Artisans): Live for the chaos! Love the excitement... inventing problems that might not exist so they have “something to solve. SJ (Guardians): Fight to preserve the status quo because it’s familiar...because they don’t want to dive into chaos until they know every possible detail of the change NF (Harmonizers): Help people through the pain of chaos...Will want to not implement a change if it’ll upset the ‘herd.’ NT (Rationals): Fly through the change when it appeases their logic and moves on to the next change before anyone else has integrated the first change.

 

...Imagine...a team with people [with] competing preferences trying to make sense of an Agile transformation? How about if you have Artisans [the author of this piece - Jason Little] keeping the organization in a constant state of chaos?    ....Now I realize it isn’t “the other people”, it’s my approach.  


 ...I need to know when to push, and when to lay off...and I didn’t even touch the hundreds of cognitive biases that affect how people respond to change. 

 

...you cannot put a budget and schedule on change, there’s no way to “ensure” everyone is progressing through the change at the same rate and same intensity.

Leading through complexity is an essential element of change management.  This post  is a good reminder of the layers of difference in change adoption - useful for Jungians - and the MBTI familiar  (Myers Briggs, Keirsey) as well as those using similar personality tools.  


It's also a good reminder for leaders, who know the nuances of any personality assessment.  It highlights that your perspective is quite limited.  Different perspectives of those on your leadership team, if they are diverse and helpful in their differences, and speak up, is of great value in true leadership teamwork.  ~  D

12 Sentences To Improve Your Communication

12 Sentences To Improve Your Communication | Change Management | Scoop.it

This is the age of instant communication, and a good example of it is how within the reach of a click, we can “skype-dive” into the room of someone else, living thousands of kilometers away. Businesses flourish everyday, coming out of networks of collaborators, scattered in many countries and geographies, permanently engaged in constant processes of communication, via Skype, Whatsapp, Twitter, Facebook, mail.


Due to constant technological innovation, it is now extremely easy to speak to others,  regardless of where you are. Who doesn’t recognize this  scene: you are seating at your desk, having in front of you your laptop. To your right side is your iPhone, on the other side, your tablet. While you check your emails, you suddenly have John on Skype. Then Elise calls you on Facetime, whereas Christian demands your attention by using Whatsapp. How to properly communicate with all these people, demanding your personal attention to different issues, at precisely the same moment?

Most Work Conflicts Aren't Due to Personality | Change Management | Scoop.it

So, why do we automatically blame our coworkers? Chalk it up to psychology and organizational politics, which cause us to oversimplify and to draw incorrect or incomplete conclusions.

 

There’s a good reason why we’re inclined to jump to conclusions based on limited information. Most of us are, by nature, “cognitive misers,” a term coined by social psychologists Susan Fiske and Shelley Taylor to describe how people have a tendency to preserve cognitive resources and allocate them only to high-priority matters. And the limited supply of cognitive resources we all have is spread ever-thinner as demands on our time and attention increase.

A Change Audit Reveals Blind Spots in Failing Change Initiatives

A Change Audit Reveals Blind Spots in Failing Change Initiatives | Change Management | Scoop.it

Often feedback from teams via a “Change Audit” surprises the change leader who's dream is brutally subjected to a reality check of the gap between his teams’ actual involvement in the change and his perception of their participation.


How does a change leader become the victim of such “blindness?” 

 

Excerpted Reasons  (underlined items mine - DN):

 

1) The “organisation-focused” change leader - caught up in complex organisation diagrams – clutters of circles and rectangles – which he juggles in search of the best combination.

_________________
   
...the change leader, had not looked back...the engine had forged ahead under full steam, all alone.

…This manager’s collaborators had not followed him. They had allowed him to go off on his own, without really understanding him, ...And he, the change leader, had not looked back. He had failed to check – on a regular basis – whether the train cars of change were properly hitched to the engine. And the engine had forged ahead under full steam, all alone.


2) The “speeder” change leader [In one case]…driven by a powerful urge to conquer - the “Change Audit” immediately triggered his fury, so great was the gap it revealed between the positions of his closest collaborators and his own dynamism.
       

3) The “autistic” change leader Top Management …had failed to create confidence in it. …The best way to do that is to connect them solidly through real, effective and complete communication, from top to bottom and from bottom to top, involving all those concerned with the change.
