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 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.
