THE SPHERE Vs. The Box
person alive today suffers from an outmoded mindset, an obsolete picture
of how the world works. To one degree or another, we all see the world
from a mechanistic, reductionistic and partmentalized perspective bequeathed
to us by 17th century science, 18th century philosophy, 19th century industrialization
and 20th century business organization.
That defunct mindset is what we know as The Box.
For more than a century, The Box has ruled our lives. It determines how we see the world and how we see ourselves. It defines the structures of our organizations and the limits of our powers. Though it has long since lost its validity, The Box still haunts the majority of organizations, businesses and institutions in the world today.
When we live, work and play in The Box, we misperceive the true nature of our lives and our world and lose our ability to understand, evaluate and act in accord with the prevailing reality.
The Box represents the guiding systems of thought and belief that are not keeping pace or have hit the wall of irrelevance.
The Box causes us to adopt behaviors that run counter to our own best interests. The Box causes us to see linearity and separation where none exist. When we look at our lives, organizations and the world from a cubic perspective, we form harmful attitudes, adopt unrealistic expectations and make inappropriate decisions.
Sphericity is a guided process for tearing down the walls of The Box. It provides us with a method for seeing past our illusions and recognizing the source and nature of our self-destructive behaviors.
is a brand-new world of all-at-onceness. Time has ceased,
space has vanished. We now live in a global village...a simultaneous
happening... Electric circuitry profoundly involves men with one another.
Information pours upon us, instantaneously and continuously. As soon as
information is acquired, it is very rapidly replaced by still newer information.
Our electrically-configured world has forced us to move from the habit
of data classification to the mode of pattern recognition. We can no longer
build serially, block-by-block, step-by-step, because instant communication
insures that all factors of the environment and of experience co-exist
in a state of active interplay.
