For decades, Old Monkey and I have puzzled over the essential nature of desire for certainty and control, and where it origi- Page 23 nates. Why do we strive to structure institutions as though they were predictable, controllable machines, and labor to make people behave as though they were predictable cogs and wheels? It led to a fascinating question. What would it be like if one had perfect ability to command and control? It would be necessary to know every thing and event that ever had happened, for how could one know what total control meant without infinite knowledge of past events and their consequences?

Why are individuals, everywhere, increasingly in conflict with and alienated from the organizations of which they are part? Why are society and the biosphere increasingly in disarray? Today, it doesn't take much thought to realize we're in an accelerating, global epidemic of institutional failure. Not just failure in the sense of collapse, such as the Soviet Union, the Berlin Wall, or corporate bankruptcy, but the more common and pernicious form: organizations increasingly unable to achieve the purpose for which they were created, yet continuing to expand as they devour scarce resources, demean the human spirit, and destroy the environment.

Everything both infinitely understandable and infinitely mysterious, including an old man sitting on a tractor, smiling and running a hand over stubble on a crooked jaw.
