It is becoming clear that way a country or society is, kind of “psyche” it has, depends on way people relate to each other one-to-one, at day-to-day level of life.
At this one-to-one level there are very simple “Rules” of behaving.
It is these Rules that determine how things happen at large scale of society, no matter how much people try to impose outcomes from “above” – this can only distort outcome.
This creation of large scale by small scale is one of fundamental understandings of new field of study called “Emergence Theory”.
This may seem simplistic, but there is increasing evidence that much of what happens in life comes about in this “Emergence” way. (Biology, Mind, Ecologies, Universe, Internet, etc).
The rules that a majority of our current society seem to have unconsciously agreed to act on are:
1.Get as much as you can for yourself from those you have anything to do with in your day-to-day world.
2.Make sure you don’t take so much from those you deal with and relate to, that they won’t have anything to do with you anymore.
It is suggested, that if we would like a more enriching and supportive world, we can create this by putting in place and acting on, a new set of simple Emergence rules:
1.Every time you have any dealings with someone, make sure that you create an outcome that is of highest good for both of you.
