What's up folks,
War and conflict have been increasingly salient in my mind lately. It seems that, wherever I look, I see stories about tension and conflict. People and characters act as agents for some idealogy or another; or manifest the psychological evolution of some higher mind...
If the evolutionary path of the world hints at some persuasive agent, the logical conclusion of the presence of conflict everywhere is that this agent is deeply troubled, or undergoing some sort of psychological breakdown.
However, I think there is more to the story than conflict acting as an attractor. Humans are storytellers, of course, so conflict might simply be my own take on what's going on. I'd like to hear what other interpretations people have of the world in general. Perhaps rather than conflict, there is some process toward unity. Or perhaps I'm conflating conflict and tension. I don't know... go nuts people, feed me your thoughts!
A humble holon...
