Structures of economics and change

Economic governance

Big, our small world's structure

Here are two drawings from Roger Searle, a participant in the 'Profit vs Prophet' seminar, reflecting on economic governance and perceptions of size in relation to change.

Many of Roger's drawing are based on the open structure of leaves and reflect his offering of process as a wave, as in Heraclitus, Whitehead, Bohm. This is in contrast, he believes, to rational dialogue since Plato which has concentrated on structure with the circle as the ideal shape (i.e. atoms, spheres etc.) leading to fragmentation. It may seem strange, he suggests, that geometry could transform an economy but cause and purpose, while at either end of the wave, must both be held in the mind at same time like a Buddhist Koan.
