GROWING A REGENERATIVE CYBERNETIC CULTURE
An interdisciplinary creative research and scientific technological project seeking holistic cybernetic solutions for the health of our food systems and the regeneration of life.
Our world's soils are depleting, the health of the planet is deteriorating and systems are becoming more complex to navigate than ever. However, the solutions are systemic.
Key areas of focus
Swarm, collective intelligence
Seed, food and information sovereignty
Traditional ecological knowledge (TEK)

“Systemic trouble, the kind that can only be addressed with systemic solutions, not more point-focused problem-solving.” — John Fullerton
Naturally we can observe order forming from the disorder and chaos surrounding complex system.
It is apparent in our everyday lives, through the organised swarm of birds, the geometrical accuracy of flower petals and the golden ratio ubiquitous in all natural forms.
We can even observe order in our governed societies, through policing, law-enforced conflict resolution, political subjugation, sanctions and so forth...
but is this the ethical way to form order as planetary disorder and instability manifests as biodiversity loss, socio-economic deprivation, pollution, soil degradation and resource wars?
What other ways could we support more conscious behaviours and collective efforts for collaboration and earth stewardship?
In order to heal and re-stabilise our planetary systems, we must understand the interconnectivity of everything and how managing information entropy could be key to managing climate change, socio-economical and political instability.
As a process of this we must create the informational tools and framework to better model and enable our understanding of increasing chaos. A better understanding of natural systems is needed.
As an example, below shows how the toroidal vortex is used to model the universality of complex systems. Systems move from stable to chaotic points in multiple feedback loop processes.

“This web of life, the most complex system we know of in the universe, breaks no law of physics, yet is partially lawless, ceaselessly creative.” - Stuart A. Kauffman, Reinventing the Sacred
