Innovation Philosophy to Regenerate and Protect the Fabric of Life
Living within an increasingly turbulent world, there is more need than ever to cultivate regenerative innovation philosophies and revitalize knowledge and skills that empower us to more responsive, improve our foresight and prediction capabilities, navigate and enable new emerging environmental, social and governance structures informed by collective human and species intelligences and tools, in particular non-machine consciousnesses.
If not you, who will co-create the new world? And who will volunteer to re-write and build healthy soils and foundations for new ways to conceptualize the world?
Popular narratives in psychology, education, leadership and organizational development tell us change is difficult to achieve, because “the majority of humans prefer short bits of information, have limited attention spans, can only digest popular ideas, are lazy, selfish and feel they are entitled to happiness, irrespective of how the world around them is experienced”.
Yet – outside the formal as well as social media influencers, expert conferences and technology platforms – my experience is that these types of behaviours are the exception rather than the norm. Within societies that are not so computer technology dominated, cultural memories are intact, people are physically strong, they demonstrate remarkable resilience, and have exceptional skills at intergenerational and inter-species culture transfer.
Globally there is a popular rise in public speakers who gain stardom such as on Clubhouse, because of their mastery in complex articulation and with deep knowledge and experience – their popularity growing with thousands of followers on social media and patronage fan support sites. According to Rui Ma, Co-Founder of California based Transformational Technologies Lab – In China such experts can become millionaires producing educational content as people look toward the future of work and keep their skills and knowledge up to date.
Once off-the-beaten track cultures of long retreats and vision quests in syntropic permaculture and Amazon jungle technologies are now considered mainstream. Ordinary people eagerly study books on political discourse and economics, and thousands learn and use permission-less coding skills to experiment with digital economy and decentralized governance models.
Given the opportunity, most people prefer time to examine ideas properly, engage with and have more quality conversations, and contribute and participate in more wholesome societies.
And, sometimes, the Rolls Royce innovation and business improvement models and training investments do not apply to all individual, team community or organization’s realities and lifecycles.
It is precisely because of this – that your innovation, business models, brand and culture will differentiate you when you apply yourself to new economy philosophy and practices, fused in a novel, agile approach.
Role-modelling new gestures and movements and generating intercultural and species transmissions, is the pragmatic idealist way. Understanding how to activate social networks while regenerating and revitalizing positive and non-extractive, human contact, connection and cooperation will become a sought after skill.
Applying practical wisdom in techoself cultivation will enable you to become a Strange Attractor in Chaos and Turbulence, cultivating a thriving quality life while growing a quality living in the edges. Confident in standing your ground when all seems to be swept away by continuous changes and life transitions.

In mathematics and science, a nonlinear system is a system in which the change of the output is not proportional to the change of the input.Nonlinear problems are of interest to engineers, biologists, physicists, mathematicians, and many other scientists because most systems are inherently nonlinear in nature. Nonlinear dynamical systems, describing changes in variables over time, may appear chaotic, unpredictable, or counterintuitive, contrasting with much simpler linear systems.
The idea of a conversation is to cooperatively explore ideas, emotions and feelings and to arrive some place or to have realizations that you otherwise would not be able to. It actually requires other people to help build some or create something which on your own or the other participants would not arrive at.
