Global Change by Natural Design
Posted on November 21, 2002
This paper aims to explore the connections between evolutionary biology
and living systems theory on the one hand, and on the other, a currently
emerging initiative called Global Balance which aims to move human
civilisation into a more co-operative way of behaving, bringing all parts
of the system into balance for a sustainable future. It concludes that the
emergence of a global system designed to meet the needs of all, is a
natural part of the evolution of the human species. By learning from
evolutionary biology, social change agents can create the natural design
that will allow human civilisation to develop its next scale of co-operation.
The paper is divided into three main parts. Firstly, we take a short look at
the Global Balance project itself, so you can have this in mind as we
explore some of the theory around it. We then move on to discover how
an understanding of evolutionary systems informs and supports the project.
The third section then takes one concrete map of evolutionary human
systems, called Integral Spiral Dynamics, and uses it to plot where human
evolution is at the moment, and how a project like Global Balance can
best contribute to our healthy development.
