  • Why Collapse Occurs; Why It May Not Be Far Away 25 februari, 2021
    Collapse doesn't happen instantaneously; it happens many years after an economy first begins outgrowing its resource base. In fact, the resource base likely declines at the same time from multiple causes such as soil erosion, deforestation and oil depletion. Before collapse occurs, there seem to be warning signs.

  • US December Oil Production Drops 27 februari, 2021
    A post by Ovi at peakoilbarrel All of the oil (C + C) production data for the US state charts comes from the EIAʼs Petroleum Supply monthly PSM. After the production charts, an analysis of three EIA monthly reports that project future US production is provided. The charts below are updated to December 2020 for the […]
  • Lifespan of infrastructure, transportation, and buildings 27 februari, 2021
    Preface. What follows is from the International Energy Agency 2020 report “Energy technology perspectives” on how to transition to net zero emissions by 2050. This might require the replacement of just about everything, since power plants, steel blast furnaces, cement … Continue reading →

Systems Science in Collapse: An interview with George Mobus | Doomstead Diner

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

En podcast med George Mobus som skriver en intressant blog Question Everything. Han har nu kommit ut med en ny bok ”A THEORY OF SAPIENCE: Using Systems Science to Understand the Nature of Wisdom and the Human Mind”, den går just nu att ladda ner.

Från inledningen av boken:

Consider this perplexing question: If human beings are so smart, why have we not solved the many social and physical problems that have plagued humanity throughout history? Are poverty, war, and genocide (to name a few) really going to be with us always? Moreover, why are we facing nearly imponderable problems that have developed due to our own inept actions, e.g. climate change?

Principles of Systems Science.

  1. Systemness: Bounded networks of relations among parts constitute a holistic unit. Systems interact with other systems, forming yet larger systems. The universe is composed of systems of systems.
  2. Systems are processes organized in structural and functional hierarchies.
  3. Systems are themselves, and can be represented abstractly as, networks of relations between components.
  4. Systems are dynamic on multiple time scales.
  5. Systems exhibit various kinds and levels of complexity
  6. Systems evolve to accommodate long-term changes in their environments.
  7. Systems encode knowledge and receive and send information.
  8. Systems have regulation subsystems to achieve stability.
  9. Systems contain models of other systems (e.g. simple built-in protocols for interaction with other systems and up to complex anticipatory models).
  10. Sufficiently complex, adaptive systems can contain models of themselves (e.g., brains and mental models).
  11. Systems can be understood (a corollary of #9) – Science.
  12. Systems can be improved (a corollary of #6) – Engineering.
