5.1 Evolution in Cycles

Elisabet Sahtouris offers us a very compelling model to look at evolution. Her evolutionary cycle allows us to not only understand the evolutionary process of an individual or a single species (such as us humans) on a micro or meso level, but also on a macro level, when we understand how different species co-evolve and go through the phases of unity - individuation - conflict/tension - negotiation - resolution - collaboration - new level of unity.

Where do you think we are as humans in our evolutionary cycle, if we would agree for a moment that the earth is our mother system, from which we individuated?

  • Are we still in the competition phase, already in the negotiation phase or even beyond?
  • What signs do you see that would confirm (and/or challenge) your thinking?
