How do we connect to the web of life?

"We're very good at linear thinking. Extremely good. Yeah, we got to send rockets to the moon, how'd we do that? We assemble all the parts, we get the maths right, we send a rocket to the moon. Linear thinking—really, really good. We're incredibly bad at complexity, and systemic thinking. However, if we connect to the web of life, it is complexity. And then all we have to do is ask of it, what do you want of me? And be able to respond to the answer in real time."
