In the previous posts, I have presented evidence that the current economy is ordered around scarcity and competition. Additionally, I have presented evidence that the universe is ordered around indestructible energy. In fact, all of the matter that exists originated out of this indestructible energy.
So, the questions I am inviting you to consider with me are:
- If the universe is ordered around abundant, indestructible energy…the energy that formed all of the matter in the material world, could it be said that the universe is ordered around abundance? After all “indestructible” goes hand-in-hand with the concept of abundance.
- And, if the universe is ordered around abundance rather than scarcity, or in other words, the economy of the universe is one of abundance not scarcity, then wouldn’t the heuristic of scarcity be a systematic deviation from logic, thus producing a cognitive bias that is informing human behaviors that result in our extractive economy?
- Simply: Could it be that we are competing with each other for no real reason?
- If so, could we imagine an economy that was other than extractive…one that was generative?
Thanks for reading, and please keep up as we explore the possibilities for a new generative economy.
