What are the most important open systems in the coming century?
My answer is the primary industries such as agriculture, forestry, fishery and stock-breeding, where humans are in direct contact with nature. Especially agriculture has always been essentially destructive to the environment in human history. Even today, modern agriculture based on the reductionism principle is causing devastating impact on natural environment, degenerating food quality, and eventually threatening our health.
With the use of open systems science, I first propose a new system of agriculture, namely "synecoculture", whose practice itself strongly recovers and constructs the natural environment under any arable climate conditions, by augmenting ecological interactions beyond natural state. Furthermore, I plan to establish a new relationalistic life science of "in natura" state beyond conventional reductionism, and realize the "symbiotic earth" where all living species can manifest their function to its full potential via primary industries under humans direction.
