We humans, given our growth and impact, have become an equivalent of the geological forces that have shaped the earth over its 4.5 billion year history. Where can we turn for guidance on how to be such a force? To the universe itself, cosmologist Brian Swimme suggests. He discusses eleven powers of the universe, modes of action that we can emulate as we move into the vibrant future we desire. This series will explore the wisdom and example of each. This one looks at what the power of centration can teach us about moving into a new economic system. Centration is a perfect fit for firecracker-in-human form and economist Kate Raworth’s revolutionary thinking about doughnut economics.
