Preserving the Life Equation
Humans as an integral part of our next life design
Preserving the Life Equation on Earth is understanding our roles and/or functions within our next ecosystemic model where Humans will have to fit into the wider planetary design and care for everything and everyone.
The Life Equation highlights four connecting points we will need to monitor to ensure conditions conducive to life on Earth are not being threatened.
These points connects us with the biosphere (our biological environment) on the left-hand side of the graph and with the technosphere (our material economy) on its right side.
To preserve life, we should aim to fit within the environmental design (deep behavioral change) while monitoring feedback loop messages (distance to system circularity). We should also redesign our ecosystemic sphere of life aiming at caring for everything and everyone (empathy-based model of life) while dreaming in thriving communities (distance to system well-being).
Here, We are Nature, We are Energy and We are Value
Inserting Humans as an integral part of our next life design also aims at changing our belief system much faster, as we are the key that would unlock the current complexities.
WIDER SPATIAL RELATIONSHIP
Surviving within the Earth system means following Earth's ecosystem rules by developing a deep and wide enough life model based on empathy.
This would mean shifting from our current governance model limited to one human life into a model based on decentering decisions above and beyond our lifetime on the planet.
Collective Decentration consists of deciding as if unborn generations would approve a decision I wish to make today. A decision which can solely be approved if aimed at preserving the biosphere of future generations.
Such new governance system is based on much wider spatial relationships (views from elders and unborn generations are taken into account thanks to a deep empathy-based process) and on much longer time scale (every decisions are aiming at preserving life and ecosystems over centuries).
LONGER TIME SCALE
In these long-term processes, greed no longer exists because decisions made will only have an impact beyond the life of the person who took it. Ensuring greed disappears from Human systems will increase our chances to drastically reduce the occurrence of a rebound in our consumption patterns.
This requires a drastic mindset shift in our governance system.
3 Dimensional Innovation
Here abundance (distributed and renewed sources of energies and abundance biological resources) is preferred and encouraged while scarcity (resources that are limited within a finite planet) is avoided thus prevented.
Equity makes Business Sense
This approach enables us to reinvent our future ecosystemic framework by valuing all species lives and by questioning Humans new priorities within our wider design.
Endless Jobs & Activities
Here, countless restorative jobs would be created in an repair-based economy that cares for everyone and everything, and endless regenerative activities would be rewarded to replace ecosystems functions that have disappeared.
The objective is to respond to Human and non-Human needs thanks to system circularity.
