Business in the “multi-cellular” Humanity
Question from the Internet:
“What sustains a local business in the globalised market?”
It depends on the type of business and the country it is in.
If the business is concerned about basic, natural necessities, then it can survive regardless of the global market, due to the low demands for sources obtained elsewhere and the low cost of those necessities.
The local food, grocery, drink supply in India from traditional suppliers to the usual customers through “hand to hand trade” is a good example.
But when the business is more complex, it can’t disconnect from the global market, it the state of the global market and financial statement due to resources needed from further away and the paying capacity of the costumers also depends on the state of the global economy.
It is similar to how our biological works, there are some basic life functions cells, organs can maintain even when disconnected from the rest of the body due to illness, injury, but for higher level, more complex existence they need to be part of the general circulation, communication.
Now in the global, integral world we have evolved into, Humanity functions exactly like a single body, multi-cellular organism.
But this existence doesn’t come instinctively to us, as we are all programmed like “single-cell” organisms. We have to - actively, methodically - learn how to exist as multi-cellular organisms.
By that we receive a unique, systemic awareness no other parts of Nature has.
