flying money, flying paper, flying bits

In Post-Modern Era stability should be achieved by stable money in a stable economy, and so it was...
But the pendulum of history doesn't stop and mankind is not the owner of history, although we think we have power over it.
And so, in After Post-Modern it seems that notes and coins are flying, supposed valuable papers are flying, economic valuable bits are flying...
We are not coming back to middle ages to trade merchandising by objects or livestock, or metals instead of money, but maybe people is going a hardway to find that life is more valuable than money, that money can be just a mirror of work, and a mean, not an end...
It seems utopian, but mankind is suffering anyway under a stubborn economic expectation.

Complexity and crisis

There is a persistent crisis around the world too much seen as “an economic crisis”… And the only ways people try to solve that crisis are “economic ways”… So, humankind walks in circles…
That reductionism is far from to find stable solutions.
It is difficult to accept that we are living under paradigms different from those of postmodern times.
As history go round in circles and vortex, so some parts of philosophy.
Aristotle wrote that the whole is more than the sum of the parts. If we think only in one aspect and work only in that field we will not achieve the whole.
Complexity can afford ways to deal with problems and questions beyond the limits of each field of knowledge. We must see the link among things and not only each thing itself.
