Common sense says that our planet and the phenomenons that occur within it are linear. That means they follow a specific progression, something like a timeline. A becomes B, B becomes C and so forth. But, for better or for worse, the reality is way more complicated and interesting. We live in a non-linear world dominated by multiple systems; the processes that appear to be linear involve much more participants. Going back to the example, what makes A become B? there should be another factor in the equation. We are surrounded by a network of interconnected systems – one affects the other that affects the other – this is what makes our world turn. It is our job to manage them in order to make them last, in order to make them resilient, not only efficient.
