Synergy

The Global Brain: speculations on the evolutionary leap to planetary consciousness.”

The chapter on synergy says, “Synergy does not imply any coercion or restraint, nor is it brought about by deliberate effort. Each individual element of the system works towards its own goals, and the goals themselves may be quite varied.  Yet the elements function in ways that are spontaneously mutually supportive…Because the elements in a synergistic system support each other, they also support the functioning of the system as a whole, and the performance of the whole is improved.” The current state of humanity may be considered one of low synergy. How do we raise it?
