Rose,

I too, appreciated the “spiritual lens,” mentioned by Joy that you brought to the concept of complexity thinking.  I am reminded of the Trinity interpreted as perichoresis, the dance of the Three.  It is non-hierarchical and free, yet interpenetrating and communal.  Of course, I also appreciate your early comment that reading the article made your head hurt–my response, exactly.  Having spent my life working in hierarchical organizations and manager/supervisor directed contexts, in which the leader was seen as the “vision caster,” complexity theory is a tough concept to get my head around, even if my heart resonates with the organic nature I detect in it.
