Here is one such fragment:
We are not separate from the world.
We are integrally connected.
We are each a node of one huge global network.
It is as if we are all attached by a large number of elastic bands to a multitude of other nodes: people, things, places, and history.
We live in a hyper-connected, socio-technical world.
Every node pulls on us, and we, in turn, pull on everything else.
It is this dynamic network that shapes us and determines our behaviour far more than any conscious, rational decisions.
