    Contextual Understanding as an Essential Tenet of Resilience

Let us say many of the members here are in some way or other, planning for Resilience / and Reaching Potential vis a vi a multi-dimensional capital assets model and other tools and systems and within the overall guiding principle of right relationship with self, family, community – great and small –  and nature, or nature/spirit for those inclined spiritually.

As a crude and broad stroke of the brush, and in a very general sense, I would say that this is what many of us here are working towards -our long term objective if you will.

One of the foundational pillars of any form of planning is of course understanding the context in which one is operating.

To me, all discussion on governmental frameworks, systems and policy, all discussions regarding the regulation, and promotion or discrediting of medicines – herbal, pharmaceutical and other, and much of the dialogue in general, can indeed be made stronger if the underlying context is also examined more robustly.

To do this examination – especially of the “underbellies”. one need to open all windows of the mind and heart and soul.

As unpalatable a cocktail party conversation as it may be, a full examination into the powers that truly be, the real rulers of things   –  et cetera –  is of absolute necessity to correctly understand the context in which we operate.

As every old school MBA will know, without the UDM, there can be no robust planning and  management.

So I invite conversation……delving into the question in attempts to ascertain the most detailed contextual understanding possible.

Who is / are the Ultimate Decision Maker/ s on Planet Earth?

“Who is / are the Ultimate Decision Maker/ s on Planet Earth?”

Hi Mary, I would say that life is the ultimate decision maker, or perhaps, the basis on which we make valuable decisions.  Thanks for asking.

“Who is / are the Ultimate Decision Maker/ s on Planet Earth?”

The system itself is the ultimate owner / decision maker. The system itself is quite complex, and probably well beyond human comprehension. We can’t even define, describe or control the economy we humans have created, how can we possibly understand the earth and all the systems interlocked and moving about to balance everything needed to sustain life across all living beings. And adjustment and balance is what it is constantly doing……we humans can affect it, but I believe there is a point where we will be unable to do so and if we become too much of a bother…..we will be removed from the planet. We are not in control. (but that is my opinion)

It is my opinion because the hand or situation that set-up our wonderful world must have been awesome…..it really is a well oiled and balanced machine that reacts to things to keep a fair balance. (Think of the systems in operation that clean up water, air and soils…..clean up death, clean up and convert all sorts of things to more useful forms.

We are a part of that system as much as the earth worm or fungus is…..we might just be the most aware part of the bunch…..but trust me, we are but a cog in the system much bigger than us. (but we have a part to play)

From the perspective of the woodpecker, the woodpecker is the ultimate decision maker in it’s world……the same is true for each of us humans.
