While our expectations are rarely met with the thrill of a wish granted, the dynamics of systems in change often provide us with just what we wished for, but usually in unexpected ways. Sometimes, just the opposite of our expectations appear to us first, distracting the initial intent of our expectant wishes and thereby diverting the flow of dynamic energy patterns away from our anticipated state. This is just the paradox of systems of change in continuous flux. Or, as The Archdruid Reports, The Cussedness of Whole Systems. In this case, the Archdruid reports “The issue at the heart of the debate is the shape of the curve that will define future petroleum production worldwide, and the reason that it needs to be addressed is that so far, at least, that curve is not doing what most peak oil theories say it should do.”
