1. There is no such thing as an independent individual.
2. There is no such invention as an isolated technology.
3. There is no such thing as a single resource.
4. There is no such thing as an independent nation-state.
5. Humankind is an organized ecosystem of flows and stocks
of transformed and reconstructed materials, money, energy
6. One generation's, community's, or culture's answers, solutions,
or opportunities become other people's and future generation's problems.
