Product Description

“The Boids and the Bees” by A.H. Jones
We are confronted with problems in virtually all of our major systems. Einstein said that “we cannot solve our problems on the same level of thinking we were on when we created them.” We believe a fundamental fault underlying all these problems is the way we look at them. Our traditional method has been to analyze the system as if it were a machine to find the faulty elements and to fix them. We have done this with ailing ecosystems long enough to know that it doesn’t work well. If it doesn’t work here because of the complexity of the system how can we expect it to work on us or other equally, if not more, complex living systems? We are not machines. We can adapt and create in novel ways. In The Boids and the Bees we, and other living systems, are seen as the complex and adaptive systems that we (they) are, which leads to a perceptual revolution: • We are fighting a war with bacteria that we can’t win. Seeing bacteria as adapting agents allows us to see how they adapt and opens other doors to end the war; • Patients that are informed and empowered can lead our health care system to focus on prevention and health rather than illness and profits; • Learning has been analyzed in the laboratory. Now we use the results of this analysis to teach our children; they become the labrats in the classroom. Seeing them as adaptive agents is the first step in correcting this dehumanizing error. How we adapt today will determine our tomorrows; and they can be optimized.

*Insurance is designed to pay for the unexpected crisis. Health insurance started that way in the U.S. but gradually, because the companies we work for were paying for it and getting a better tax break, it morphed into paying for it all. That means we have less interest in getting the ounce of prevention than if we were paying for some of those costs. Children we talk to about the dangers of drugs just say they’ll get a brain transplant if they burn theirs out. That’s why we think that Health Savings Accounts should be promoted by the government more; they put the individual back in a position of responsibility in making more choices in their health care. With Health Savings Accounts an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
