“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”

(Albert Einstein)

1. Cooperation, not Competition. Yes, non-competitiveness can go with a high level of ambition, excitement, and striving for success. Non-competitive cooperation is risky, but: the risk of non-competitive cooperation is the basis for success and beauty in projects, teams and life.

2. Open Systems Thinking. All systems are perfect in themselves, transparently open and complexely interconnected – as in nature the weed, the cash crop and the flower flourish only in their interconnection and in a high level of diversity. The more diverse an ecosystem is, the more stable. This also applies to social, cultural and economic systems.

3. Paradox of Structures, Money and Figures. Structures, money and figures are some of the most useful tools human societies have developed. Transcending their power and dominance, they are helpers in understanding and shaping complex realities, developing futures and building exchange systems in elaborate societies.

4. For Humankind, for Communities, for Connectedness. Community building, dreaming the dream of the world as a better place is one of our core aspirations. This includes celebrating life, learning together, envisioning a future of change, developing spaces of community and celebrating the beauty of life, nature and civilization.

5. Sharing. We are just trustees of what life has given to us: money, items, tools and land, knowledge, creativity, beauty. In this sense we understand all our work as sharing, and for free use for everybody (Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License, which means: you may share, use and adapt all our work without any restrictions).
