The story of 360coins and its system-innovation starts anew in the paradigme of a true, global economy with nature as our capital and asset, multiplied with the intentions and efforts to quantum leap from linear to a Circular Economy. The 360coins are designed with the purpose to close the loop and to give true value to humans, as well as nature. We have made them in wood and in hard currency of collecting objects. Not at all digital, but hands on value – and a token for payback time.
It is due time for humanity to put ecology before economy, and to invest in nature is our payback time! The Laws of Nature is stronger than any governmental laws, and it is a situation of no mercy when e.g. a hurricane is presenting its power. We can also express it as a give back time.
The work of Elisabet Sahtouris has inspired me, and hope this cosmology might inspired children in the future – as we express a “FUTURE-NOW” reality. It has a mild, and optimistic vibrational tone for the future.
ECOSOPHY, A NATURE GUIDE FOR A BETTER WORLD – Elisabet Sahtoris
ECOLOGY BEFORE ECONOMY is the COSMOLOGY of our time. It is not new, it is an old way of defining life. Circular Economy is a thinking of the past just as it is modern, and is emerging to the surface of our collective wisdom through our common sense. How can we possible create more garbage and pollution when we know that we are killing ourselves?
The linear, industrial, growth economy is redefined and out-phased by its own insanity. We are together bending the wast-creating economies of exploitation, and we are intuitively doing our best in the drawdown of the temperature on the Planet.
The first time I heard about Circular Economy was in 2002 and in the context of the New industrial Economy for China. This was the same year as the first seeds of 360hub Global was planted in the dry sand of Egypt, literally as we organized the learning event at the new Library of Alexandria in 2002.
With the building’s circular shape and historical reference to Greek heritage this iconic building gave inspiration to rethink, redefine and restructure perspectives of wealth and growth.
Greek words like oikos, ecology, economy and even Gaia became the DNA of 360hub Global. The History of Money has its anchor in the bedrock of the human civilzation along the trading route along the Silk Road and coins was in itself an industrial innovation for humanity.
The Norwegian ecosoph, Arne Naess, is also a source of inspiration, as well as the work of Gandhi.
“Every living being is connected intimately, and from this intimacy follows the capacity of identification and as its natural consequences, practice of non-violence… Now is the time to share with all life on our maltreated Earth through the deepening identification with life forms and the greater units, the ecosystems, and Gaia, the fabulous, old planet of ours. ” ~Arne Naess
On this link you find more info about the Arne Næss and Deep Ecology – the deep values.
It so many different genius , playing out love for humanity in a creative spirit. All in all, the communication is touching the same : I am another you – in our human destiny we are the same. It is the in we-ness of all different and all the same, the human family is One. We live in a unique time, where our different lifestyles and realities are beautiful. Monocultures are not – diversity is our reality. Our difference our assets, and we are all part of the whole.
“The ocean is comprised of drops of water; each drop is an entity and yet it is a part of the whole; ‘the one and the many.’ In this ocean of life, we are little drops. My doctrine means that I must identify myself with life, with everything that lives. — Gandhi
“Economy must be made subservient to ecology if we want to continue our life on Earth as a healthy, embedded global human society. Economy based on principles of a conscious universe’s mature ecosystems, including that of our bodies, becomes Ecosophy. We know deep in our hearts and souls that this must be done; all we need is the courage to lead the way for all!” — Elisabet Sahtouris
Multiple stories for humanity is a co-creating process though our personal lives. Take a look at this video by Elisabet Sahtouris. Her story makes sense – and we love the wise Grandmothers on the Planet.
With this, we hope that the 360coins will embody the new story for a cooperative – the wisdom economy of our time.
Let us make a loving future for our children.
