Oh... Mahalo for the clarification.. I just had copied and pasted to my TextEdit program. And put your website link at the bottom. I am cautious about using sites printouts:) It would be so nice seeing a flyer/brochure at WholeFoods.. and the rest of grocery stores following.
I love this from "EarthDance"
This corporate world, which, along with science and technology, is often blamed for current crises, is suddenly in crisis itself because of a dramatic new development on the human scene: the Internet. From my perspective as an evolution biologist, this WorldWideWeb of information exchange is a kind of fractal biology repeat pattern of the first version, built by bacteria billions of years ago, as we see in Chapter 4. And just like its ancient counterpartâ€”still in existence among bacteria worldwide todayâ€”it is a self-organizing living system. This Internet is also an increasingly massive exercise in inventing democracy anew, and quite possibly the most significant influence in changing human society at the dawn of this new millennium.
Chapter 20 describes the inherent organizational design and operating principles of this new Web as those of living systems, and thus shows why it has the power to force corporations with organizational designs and operating principles based on command and control mechanics to change their waysâ€”to become more like living systems themselves. As corporations, which play such a powerful determining role in our speciesâ€™ behavior as a whole, are transformed into abiding by the sustainable survival.
A Note from the Author principles of living systems, their goals will necessarily come into harmony with our personal and community goals. We can then mature like other species from competition to cooperation and build a human society in which the goals of individual and community, of local and global economy, of economy and ecology are met. This will shift us out of crises and into the happier, healthier world of which we all dream. Let it be so! Elisabet Sahtouris, September, 2000
