The panarchy lemniscate - nice Bruce and David - new words for me. Yes, finding the few universal-like patterns.
I agree, Bruce, we don't know what a local temporal condition means within a larger time frame. Nor do we know the significance of apparent smallness or low activity. And yes, I was also acknowledging the fb site as a burgeoning shroom or a rhizomal bursting through into a neighboring soil.
Though not thinking it through much, my first reflex is to think that a new packaging of the Ning site wouldn't be necessary or maybe even useful. It doesn't immediately jump out to me as high on the causative factor list. Yet . . .
What paths lie ahead for religion and spirituality in the 21st Century? How might the insights of modernity and post-modernity impact and inform humanity's ancient wisdom traditions? How are we to enact, together, new spiritual visions – independently, or within our respective traditions – that can respond adequately to the challenges of our times?
This group is for anyone interested in exploring these questions and tracing out the horizons of an integral post-metaphysical spirituality.
