The Insurgency of the invisible

Scientific rationalism says that everything needs to be measured, categorised, proven, dissected, validated.

But the invisible refuses to comply.

The field of the imagination, of outrageous beauty, of synchronicity and the miraculous, cannot be dissected, or anticipated on a human created time line, or measured.

The invisible keeps us humble. The unexplainable raises our head to seek to understand.

Beauty reduces us to the moment of now, all other capacities and connivings undone.

Imagination removes even a conversation of out of the box, which is its own box. 

The invisible, the eternally unexplainable, ensures we humans do not become lost in the mire of dominion, righteousness, and narcissism.

The timeline of the arrival of our personal experience of the insurgency of the invisible cannot be calculated, which is of course part of the invisible’s design. Perhaps on our death bed, perhaps at the very moment when we lose something we took for granted, perhaps when our health reduces us to high need.

I prefer a path of daily meeting the insurgency of the invisible. Of loosening the chains of plans and goal and objectives. 

Allowing the field to ripen. A no-thing, non-doing space. An ecstatic greeting towards the beautiful. 

It is at the intersection of my human linear plans and the insurgency of the invisible that I am met by an unfolding awe. Like the flute, the Universe breaths through me, and I become an instrument.

About Dr Christine McDougall


Christine is an internationally recognised facilitator, practitioner, teacher coach, and authority in integrative systems design, human relational design, deep wealth design and regenerative enterprises. She has held large multi-stakeholder initiatives towards a better future or all, managing diversity, complexity and various stages of human development.

As the principal of 2:23AM – She works with leaders and enterprises globally who have a commitment to being the pioneers of enterprise change. Christine has the ability to completely re-imagine business, its role in our world, and its potential for a future for all humans. She experiences a deeper level of truth than most through applying synergetics (Buckminster Fuller’s anticipatory design science), and has a way of articulating this so others can see it as well. Christine questions the most basic assumptions that drive our complex systems and can map that back to what is needed today. She is committed to the creation of one million (to start) Syntropic enterprises = enterprises that enable a higher order. By nature they evoke gravity (attraction) and coherence towards an eternally regenerative Universe.
