We’re increasing learning from nature. It makes sense. We’re a part of nature, not apart from it – out of the bubble.
We’re most in danger when we experience continued equilibrium,
We cannot remain in a constant state of disequilibrium.
We need equilibrium and disequilibrium: familiar and the unknown.
Christian Schwarz adds some detail to how we can thrive by imitating nature in what he calls biotic principles:
Life is interdependent: we’re part of a whole system;
Life multiplies: the fruit of an apple tree is not an apple but another apple tree;
Life transforms energy: we can’t turn the wave but we can learn to surf;
Life multi-uses: nothing is wasted;
Life is symbiotic: fauna and flora live together in mutually beneficial ways;
Life is functional: it does what it’s meant to do.*
‘And they learn that tapping these capacities cannot be achieved without people being who they are and learning how to integrate their own lives.’
