If the culture of conflict and violence feeds on a pyramid system based on the domination of some and the exclusion of others, the culture of peace is based on inclusion and the symbolism of the circle where all the points of the circle are equidistant from the center.
This reading grid allows an observer placed on a point of the circle to see the opposite point on its diameter as being complementary to him and allows him to free himself from a dualistic perception in favor of a cooperative.
The cooperation observed within Nature is a perfect illustration of this circular functioning. Long before the financial economy of men, nature was able to create a harmonious economy providing abundance to all the links in the chain of life for 4.5 billion years. Its manufacturing secret lies in the circularity of all the organizational systems that it has been able to maintain.
Let’s look at the forest : the trees grow, produce fruit that humans, birds, quadrupeds and insects eat.
Let’s look at the forest : the trees grow, produce fruit that humans, birds, quadrupeds and insects eat. In the fall, their leaves fall and feed a whole variety of fungi, insects and bacteria that will restore the necessary nutrients to the soil to feed the trees again through their roots and thus come full circle.
Waste does not remain in nature, it is recycled. Each element has its place and each has its role to play from the smallest of bacteria and to the largest of mammals and beyond, planets and galaxies.
As for man, through his desire for domination, he came out of the circularity of the Living and created linear and pyramidal organizations . One has only to observe our current production systems and our workplaces to understand all the waste of energy, time and money thus generated.
