“When humans — after all, still a young species — drop our adolescent arrogance of thinking we know it all and learn from the wisdom in our planet's accumulated experience of living systems design, we too will mature as a species. When we learn to see the advantage of co-operation we will be able to give up competitive juvenile hostilities. It's not too late to remodel our engineered institutions into healthy, living systems.”
