Why do some cities die, and some strive? Why some companies fail, and other grow? Why do some people recover from trauma faster than the others? Why do some species evolve and other get extinct?
Those questions are answered from different perspectives in numerous fields of science. Interest to me has been to grasp underlying principles underneath those answers.
I have learned that it is useful to interpret the reality as a constantly changing system. Ability to cope with the change may be the key factor that makes some cities, companies, species, states, humans, world-views strive, and other decay.
Knowing how to let change flow freely while we use it as a “recourse” might be our finest instrument. Not the instrument for mere survival, though. It’s a fine instrument to create resonance inside our deepest selves and reality, so we can truly enjoy the human experience.
