reposting this since  this is brilliant and genuinely pointing to a new kind of thinking.... definetly an answer from a already shifted paradigm.

I think of "sustainable" as at least what is called "resilient" here. We are not truly sustainable until we have already mitigated damages and shifted to a symbiotic relationship with nature. But in doing so, we also become thrivable, doing as nature does, creative and regenerative.

Hi Daniel and all; for this discussion I can strongly recommend Nassim Taleb's new book: Antifragile. Jean has taken that new notion into account in her description of Thrivability. Taleb makes clear distinctions: he says that antifragile goes much further than robust or resilient systems (and in this sense further than merely sustainable systems) "the obut or resilient is neither harmed nor helped by volatility and disorder, while the antifragile benefits form them." It is very worth looking into! And also here, much more than a game of words. :-)
