Why a Tipping Point System
Tipping points are the points or thresholds at which small changes in a system will trigger a nonlinear change. This process is driven by structural feedback loops that lead to a qualitatively different and often irreversible state of the system as a whole. Birth is a tipping point, as we can't physically return back into the womb of our mother.
The human species is faced with either preparation for the birth of a new paradigm, by taking the evolutionary jump, or else face untold suffering and possible extinction. We've created the Tipping Point System (TPS) as an evolutionary cohering system to align our various projects for tipping point impact, and to build collaborative capacities. TPS serves to support humanity through the birth canal, and can consult on how to co-create your own Tipping Point System.
Through the Tipping Point System we facilitate transitions through sense-making complexity and uncertainty, and by creating an evolutionary coherent field for the emergence of higher order possibilities.
What and Who is involved
Our Tipping Point System includes the EARTHwise Collaboratory, Indigenous Wisdom Council, and advisors. Serving as a co-creative visioning space where we can explore and include diverse perspectives and build synergies. As part of TPS we also experiment with how we can co-create social tipping points for societal transformation. The first of these experiments, and the current focus of the Collaboratory, is The Earth Song project (further explained below).
Into the Birth Canal of Systemic Transformation
Our world has entered the tipping point times of major transformational change. We're now entering the narrow passage of the collective birth canal, whereby our wiggle room to maintain 'business as usual' has come to an end. A major transformation is required in every aspect of human life and human consciousness: politically, economically, financially, socially, culturally, educationally, and environmentally to secure a safe future for life on Earth.
Through TPS we explore how to apply and align our creative powers for the greatest positive impact we can co-create. The EARTHwise Tipping Point System serves to upgrade and catalyze humanity's systems to provide essential support and inspiration for this narrow passage through the collective birth canal.
The importance of Evolutionary Coherence
TPS applies the cosmic architecture of living systems into human design and tipping point strategies. Living systems are guided by what is called "evolutionary coherence", which Dr. Anneloes Smitsman explains as follows:
"Evolutionary Coherence is a dynamic state of harmonic resonance and spontaneous collaboration between the diverse elements and relationships of complex living systems. A natural state of attunement to the innate wholeness and unity of life."
Through TPS we create and nurture the conditions for evolutionary coherence to emerge, rather than top-down goals and frameworks. Evolutionary coherent development is our guiding principle. When the evolutionary coherence of human systems and cultures declines; division, disunity, conflict, disease, violence, ward, and collapse follow.
TPS can work with any existing or future system and culture for evolutionary cohering and harmonically aligning our diverse potentials for a thriving world and planet. Our commitment is to bring the best of our scientific knowledge, digital technologies, indigenous wisdom, entrepreneurial practice and collective leadership together to become the future humans of the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.
OUR TPS IS OUR GPS ~ OUR COMPASS FOR POSITIVE TIPPING POINTS
“The time is now to create harmony, life-giving relationships with ourselves, each other, and the earth. The Tipping Point System provides us a holistic, heart-centered, inspirational and action-oriented way forward.” ~ Dr Anita Sanchez (PhD), Indigenous Wisdom Council, Aztec and Latina, author of The Four Sacred Gifts: Indigenous Wisdom for Modern Times
The Earth Song
It seems humanity is the only species who has forgotten its song. It's time we remember and sing our world together.
The Earth Song is part of an intentional experiment for co-creating music for social change in support of our planet, and to rise, unite, and ignite the heart of our humanity.
Initiated by Anneloes Smitsman in co-creative partnership with Sasha Siem and the EARTHwise Collaboratory, the Earth Song invites people from all over the world to creatively sing our world together with Mother Earth. The Earth Song music has been composed by award-winning composer and singer Sasha Siem, with lyrics by Anneloes Smitsman, Sasha Siem and Shani Lehrer. We're now working on the technology for making it possible for everyone in the world to join this co-creation with Mother Earth.
New Growth Archetypes
The growth patterns of healthy living systems are vitally different from mainstream societal systems. Life creates conditions for evolutionary coherent growth, whereas human growth has become contrary to the intelligence of life. Being EARTHwise is about the applications of this vital understanding.
The Tipping Point System provides essential creative input and a deeper systemic listening capacity for rebuilding our worlds post-COVID 19, based on sound living system principles. The past COVID-19 crisis reveals even more clearly the importance of applying the thrivability principles of healthy living systems in the design and operations of our societal growth systems.
The Tipping Point System applies the Third Way that has been developed by Dr Anneloes Smitsman, based on her PhD research for addressing the systemic thrivability barriers of our dominant extractive mechanistic growth systems, as well as the r3.0 informational infrastructure for regenerative, redistributive, and resilient economies. The Third Way with the r3.0 Blueprints in-forms a qualitative thrivability growth system that is value-driven and based on the implicate order growth dynamics of living systems.
