The following is taken from a six-month old conversation on the PI Community where I asked other members about their experience with group dynamics, especially when they felt that the social field "crashed" (in a sense that it couldn't provide the higher purpose it had been initially meant to be).
Just thinking about social fields, I ask myself, wether they just don't crash and rather evolve into something new.
It only can crash if you hold on something. Image a cup of tea. You normally hold on to it drinking your tea. Does it fall down, it crashes - meaning you can't drink your tea from it any longer.
Opening your mind and heart to the future that emerges from the fact that the cup is now not usable for holding fluids opens new paths.
What do you think? What if this metapher applies in other context as well?
