The challenges we face today are complex, interconnected, and deeply embedded in our institutions and the stories we use to make sense of the world.
There are no silver bullets or best practices for dealing with complex systems. Embrace the liminal.
If you look across the divisions we have made in order to understand the world, you can see that collectively, we have much of the understanding we need to start turning the ship around. Let's share, creatively reorganise, "jam" together with our unique interests and skills and perspectives. We can learn together how to repair and weave and integrate and heal our world and our relationships with it.
One of the widest chasms in our world is found between academic research or theory on the one hand, and practical application or lived experience on the other. Bridging that gap is critical for dealing with complexity. We need to be able to probe a system or situation to see what is there, sense how the system reacts, respond to that change, and then repeat. Praxorium is first and foremost a "place for praxis".
When we focus on solving problems, we rarely examine our deepest assumptions. We may value pragmatism, or loyalty to the organisation that pays our salary, to family, country, professional discipline. Such assumptions are all embedded in past experience and old stories about what currently exists, not by deep ethics or possibilities. Thinking outside the box requires continuous curiosity and humility.
