Problem Is The Solution: Keeping It Simple

We’ve now gone so far beyond what is appropriate for our culture, for our health, and for the planet that it is time to bring technology back to scale. The problem is the solution.

Hierarchies Vs Networks

Governments vs people power, hierarchies vs networks and response to crisis.

Solving for a Changing Climate - AskNature

The science is clear, and so is our imperative. What can we learn from nature as we design solutions for mitigating, adapting to, and reversing climate change?

Patterns and Permaculture

Here's 7 of the Best Examples of Biomimicry and Nature-Inspired Design | Digital Trends

Many of our technological innovations have been based on natural design properties. Here are the seven best technologies inspired by the animal kingdom.

Permaculture Design Principle 7: Design from patterns to details

By stepping back, we can observe patterns in nature and society. These can form the backbone of our designs, with the details filled in as we go.

Decoding the Secret Patterns of Nature - Fibonacci Ratio & Pi - Full Documentary

NOVA leads viewers on a mathematical mystery tour -- a provocative exploration of math's astonishing power across the centuries. We discover math's signature in the swirl of a nautilus shell, the whirlpool of a galaxy and the spiral in the center of a sunflower. Math was essential to everything from the first wireless radio transmissions to the prediction and discovery of the Higgs boson and the successful landing of rovers on Mars. But where does math get its power? Astrophysicist and writer Mario Livio, along with a colorful cast of mathematicians, physicists and engineers, follows math from Pythagoras to Einstein and beyond, all leading to the ultimate riddle: Is math an invention or a discovery? Humankind's clever trick or the language of the universe? Whether we think we're good with numbers or not, we all use math in our daily lives. The Great Math Mystery sheds fascinating light on how math works in our brains and ponders the ultimate mystery of why it works so well when decoding the universe.
