Nature rebalances things.
Life, including human life, is as much about expansion and change as homeostasis. Evolution, transformation, growth and ambition: a becoming, beyond the comfort of equilibrium.
Scientifically and philosophically, reaching the truth means the end of change, the end of life - the perfect equilibrium. As long as we haven't reached the truth we search, change and live. The least knowable are emotions, the spiritual and the heart.
Harmony - life -leads to chaos. Artists try to find harmony again.
Our challenge is to overcome a world of winners and losers and also beyond one of homeostasis. As opposed to just aiming for equilibrium, aim for thriving for all: a new ecology of existence.
To be aware of life you have to get out of balance. Not to the point where it kills you, but also not at a level of stillness where you forget that you are alive. Life is change.
Sustainability relies on the continuous rebalancing of energy generation which self-renews.
Knowledge is replacing labor and capital as the key input of production. This has created wealth & extraordinary opportunities, but also poses enormous challenges for stability & fairness.
While striving for homeostasis and balance, life and evolution are expressed by constant imbalance and rebalancing, yin and yang (quantum effect). Perfect equilibrium is a momentary cessation of life and an unsustainable state.
