“Leverage” – Why Nature Will Survive But We May Not!

Herring_spawning2Herring spawn every year providing an abundant food supply for a wide range of sea-life, many of whom also provide food for animals further up the food chain.

Without the various and abundant spawning (or “leverage”) that occur every year nature would be under even more stress than it is, and would quickly become extinct.

“Nature is trying very hard to make us succeed, but nature does not depend on us. We are not the only experiment.” – R. Buckminster Fuller

Leverage is one of the Generalised principles that Buckminster Fuller identified, that apply everywhere throughout the Universe at all times, without exception. Leverage has also been described as “technology” and our ability to do more with less, everyday.

So why are so few human beings leveraged, but rather they operate as individuals, separate, and many feel the daily stress or pressure of making a living and surviving, providing for their families and loved ones?

Often the leverage that the ‘successful’ few humans develop is by accumulation of money, or property or other valuable resource … by accumulation which takes resources out of the natural flow of life. Often it is at the expense of others … and as a result, prices rise (anti-evolution) and people suffer needlessly, thousands even die each day.

When asked about saving money Buckminster Fuller said he never kept money, he invested it into the future through the projects he was developing.

Can you imagine a pelican accumulating a month’s worth of fish? Of course not … it’s not a part of the design, and perhaps either is our accumulation.

Creating an artifact, i.e. a physical man-made object that may be a tool or weapon, a business or an enterprise, that adds value and can be sold is another form of leverage.

Artists and singers produce records and books which now days are digital, and they are paid a royalty income, sometimes for generations after they die.

Our current financial system has separate rules for the wealthy and the poor. These rules are played out in what marketers call the 80:20 rule, where 80% of the total income, total wealth, resources, educational opportunities (or whatever) goes to 20% of the people. AND 80% or the 80% goes to 20% of the 20%, i.e. 64% goes to 4% and take it further and 51% of the money, the wealth or resources goes to less than 1%.

Can you see that this inequality is “by design” of our current, broken financial system which only serves a very small minority. Ultimately there must be a revolution … there has been throughout history; however, this time we are preparing for a comprehensive design science revolution as Bucky Fuller said must happen.

This design science revolution will incorporate a NEW Financial Engine that transforms the existing order, and helps reshape the world. It will INVERT THE 80:20 “Power Curve” such that abundance becomes available to everyone on Earth. That way we will survive as planet Earth thrives.

About Alex Sprunt

Twenty years ago I participated in a game that changed my life. Called "The Barnyard Game" it threw groups of intelligent people into fierce competition for the chance to 'access the Ocean of Abundance' and the "Ocean only wants to OUTFLOW ... so come with a spoon, a cup, bucket or pipe it in, the Ocean doesn't care". The game was noisy, loud, had physical barriers and it was played hard. Then all of a sudden a realisation was made that swept through the game in an instant. "There is no need to compete ... the Ocean is abundant and wants everyone to enjoy her abundance." For forty years or more we have been living at a time when everyone on earth could be living the lifestyle of billionaires. Technology and a cooperation revolution makes this available and the way forward is to elevate everyone up above the level of the "1%" rather than try and pull the 1% down to a low level. We are all living in exciting times ...
