Meaningful design

The meaning of life is meaning: whatever it is, wherever it comes from, a unified purpose is what gives meaning to life.*
(Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi)

  1. Design your immediate surroundings (your ecosystem) in a manner that is self-sustaining and conducive to growth.
  2. Develop a strong, supportive relationship with the community around you.
  3. Keep learning.
  4. Keep creating and reinventing.**
    (Warren Berger)

Changelessness in a physical or material universe is an illusion.

We will need to keep reorientating our lives towards meaningfulness and away from meaninglessness.

This happens best through design, the most successful individuals and groups of people not only being most adaptive to changing conditions but also designing the conditions in which they will grow most.
