huts and artichokes*

systemic thought is based on five criteria: the change from part to whole, from structure to process, from analysis to context, from objects to relations, and from hierarchy to networks, in the construction of open systems that look for collaborating actions. all systems alive are open, flexibility and the capacity for creative actions improves the answer for change. a tree has value by the fact of being alive, independently of its possible uses. its fruits are the result of a previous process that has created them: sun, water, light, bees or other insects.

network of relations, community conscience, only within the whole have the parts any sense. our wealth, like inhabitants of the spaceship earth, is the organized capability to cope effectively with the environment in sustaining our healthy regeneration and decreasing both the physical and metaphysical restrictions of the forward days of our lives.

we open the inner door, transgress the threshold of our fictitious hut* and go out to the street. at each move we leave in full visibility the next most important layer of factors with which we must deal. somewhat similar as we peel petals from an artichoke*. we gradually uncover you and me in the heart of now.
