Sample text

The typical daily pattern of life in the West is hectic and stressed with little evidence of the free time that should have resulted from removing the drudgery of physical work that dominates the routine life of poorer people. The focus today is upon economic efficiency everywhere: at work, shopping, family affairs, finances, entertainment, holidays and travel. All are legitimate activities but are pursued with frenetic energy. Embedded in the Western worldview with tunnel vision is an expectation that next week, next month, next year, for the rest of life – and for our children – this pattern of great material prosperity will continue to grow.

Both stress and pain are apparently normal and essential in the basic structure of biological life. Life often reaches its fullness of function and beauty by triumphing in and through stress and pain. For example, cutting a butterfly out of its chrysalis is a vain attempt to gain a higher level of life without stress and pain because the fine membranes of its wings are filled with fluid during the struggle to break-out without which it cannot fly. We now examine the mechanisms by which competition and cooperation are held in creative balance in every ecosystem.

1. Lessons from the biosphere: competition, cooperation and community During the period of European history leading towards the present Western civilization, almost everyone believed that God created the universe. Implicit in this worldview has been a sense that life is a community experience. People examining nature saw that organisms of all types live together and that every natural landscape is a living ecosystem of different species. Our understanding of community within and between species was advanced considerably by the thoughtful classification system that Linnaeus (1707-1778) gave to the world which enables us to classify biodiversity more meaningfully.
