Human evolution has been a collective, systemic process. Throughout our history and our maturation the systems we have operated within have generated higher levels of selection, and emergent cultural and technological phenomenon. In my latest paper I attempt to develop a theory – Human Metasystem Transition (HMST) Theory – that can capture this systemic evolution on cybernetic terms, which emphasises the role of information, and the way information is controlled to maintain organization. From this theory, I think we can work towards a new understanding of our past, present, and potentially, our future. We live in a time of immense change, and face a future that contains many unknowns. However, our past organisation, and the previous major system transitions we have undergone, offer us insight about our present circumstances. Consequently, with a deeper understanding of our systemic conditions, we may be able to make better decisions, and prepare ourselves psychologically for a 21st century organization that will not resemble anything like our historical structure.
