Governance structures are experiencing increasing levels of stress inherent in a world that is evolving rapidly toward more complexity. They are compelled to adapt. In parallel, social media becomes a key new arena for influence. The trend is irreversible and governance structures will need to adapt too. Yet, online social platforms are ill-equipped to provide healthy debates and are needing to be redesigned with governance in mind.
The surge in connectedness that came with the internet propelled us into a new threshold of complexity and uncertainty. As a result, human societies now have to deal with global challenges in a world where change is the only constant.
Social technologies have allowed anyone to connect with almost everyone else on the globe, eliminating geographical location as a strong barrier to interaction and cooperation. Yet, trust - or lack thereof - remains an issue.
To realize a “global human organism” we must first understand the underlying unity between our subjective world (the field of psychology) and our objective world (the field of physics).
We aim to open a discussion regarding the issue of developing a new social architecture of trust for the future of governance.
