Nature rebalanced things.
Life, including human life, is much more about persistence then homeostasis. Persistence in the sense of evolution, change, growth and ambition, a Becoming as opposed to an 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 equilibrium. Not so much as to the point where being out of equilibrium kills you, but also not at the level of perfect stillness where you forget that you live. Life is change.
Sustainability relies on continuous rebalancing and energy generation that self regulates.
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.
Science and humanities need to be one to build a healthy future.
