“Quantum entanglement is a physical phenomenon that occurs when pairs or groups of particles are generated, interact, or share spatial proximity in ways such that the quantum state of each particle cannot be described independently from the state of the other” – a metaphor for Human Life & the interdependencies of the Complex Systems we inhabit.”
From a binary world anchored in a reductionist form of scientific reason and a post-modern relativism to a quantum world anchored in the Human Condition  and system complexity…
Since the Age of Enlightenment, these frameworks via observation, logic, abstract deduction and reproducibility have provided the new tools in our search for truth and an exponential explosion in human knowledge and technology.
We have shaped a thesis and antithesis to arrive at a hypothesis and, in some cases, a theory that provides a heuristic framework to begin to understand the natural world.
It has led to amazing advancements in technology and the lives we lead from the invention of the wheel to space travel to penicillin to genetic engineering to modern day digital information systems that are pervasive in our lives.
At the same time, the world we inhabit is anchored in the human condition of each one of us.
Our culture, art, personal experiences, religious beliefs and philosophy provide meaning and context.
Our perceptions of reality and the complexity & interdependencies of the systems we inhabit provide feedback loops shaping reality.
This interplay manifests itself in a range of cognitive and perceptual constraints that form the foundations of our personal and community views of the world.
Our memory and perspectives interact with other human perceptions (incl. potential manipulation) and the complexity of the natural, social and conceptual systems.
These systems are interdependent.
We are not observers but are actors and agents in these environments.
Our actions shape the outcomes, and the outcomes shape our actions.
We live in a world of paradoxes — binary truths and relativism — a dance between:
Order and Chaos
Science and Humanity
Socialism and Libertarianism
Truths and Beliefs
Right and Wrong
Technology and Humanity
Certainty and Uncertainty
I and We
All of which are anchored in the human condition and the limitations of what we really know.
Can we move from a binary world anchored in scientific reason and post-modern human relativism to a quantum world anchored in system complexity and human fallibility?
It will require a profound shift.
Our lens of the world will need to shift focus from one anchored in the ego state, certainty, control and ideology to one anchored in humility, uncertainty, collaboration, ideas, creativity, problem solving and cognitive diversity.
A world where decision making is full of paradoxes.
A shift from Aristotelian Formal & Symbolic Logic to a Hegelian Dialectic.
A recognition that the more we learn, the more we begin to realise how little we really know.
By embracing human sensemaking, the sciences and humanities and recognising the interdependencies & complexity, we begin to embrace alternative perspectives, revisit our beliefs and begin to ask better questions.
We shift our prism of reality.
New stories emerge.
New beliefs are shaped.
New realities begin to form.
A transition from searching for binary outcomes through either absolute truths or no truths (relativism) to a quantum world where the duality of meaning resides in combining the sciences with the fallibility of the human condition and recognising the complexity and interdependencies of the systems we inhabit.
