“Always think of the universe as one living organism, with a single substance and a single soul; and observe how all things are submitted to the single perceptivity of this one whole, all are moved by its single impulse, and all play their part in the causation of every event that happens. Remark the intricacy of skein, the complexity of the web.” Marcus Aurelius
For many years the dominant model of reality has been one of discrete parts. Now we are beginning to understand that everything is connected, that nothing can be fully understood if it is cut out of reality and considered as a separate part. This shift in world view moves us away from the machine model with its command and control management systems, to the life model of the organism, always changing, never fixed or permanent, vibrant, dynamic and flexible. Life can’t be controlled like a machine, but it can be enjoyed as a flow….beautiful, good and emergent. Becoming not being.
