Sample text

Donald Winnicott (1965) called this space a transitional one between the real world outside the mind and the inner fantasy world, and he located creative behavior there: the world of mythologizing and play that is the foundation of creativity. In groups we mostly operate in a state in which we utilize structures and processes, covert politics and game playing, to block anxiety-provoking complex learning and stay in the group's stable zone. Alternatively we find ourselves tipped into shared psychotic fantasies, what Wilfred Bion (1961) called "the basic assumption behavior" of dependency, fight, flight, and so onthe unstable zone for a group.

Because those learning systems operate in environments that consist mainly of other learning systems, it follows that together they form a coevolving suprasystem that, in a sense, creates and learns its way into the future. Such network systems are ubiquitous in nature; not surprisingly, because we too are a part of nature, human interaction also sets up such systems. Each of us has a brain that is a complex adaptive system in which neurons are the agents. Each of us has a mind that is a complex adaptive system in which symbols and images are the agents.

The science of complexity has so far focused primarily on the evolution of life and the behavior of chemical and physical systems. It has been developed by mathematicians and computer scientists, by physicists and chemists of great eminence like Murray Gell-Mann and Ilya Prigogine, the Nobel Prize laureates, and by other eminent scientists such as Stuart Kauffman, Christopher Langton, and John Holland at the Santa Fe Institute in New Mexico; researchers at the Center for Complex Studies at the University of Illinois; and Brian Goodwin, at the Open University in the United Kingdom.
