What does it mean to be human in uncertainty? This question has always intrigued us, even before we found ourselves in a global pandemic. If we are honest, uncertainty makes us deeply uncomfortable and so we live in ways that wish it away or deny its existence.
Diego Espinosa says we have outsourced our relationship with uncertainty to certainty merchants. Our world and lives are poorer for allowing certainty merchants to define how we ‘be’ human as certainty demands conformity, acquiescence and only one right answer to any question.
So what draws an engineer/musician, anthropologist, ex Cirque du Soleil clown psychologist, agilist, ecologist and meteorologist together? We are drawn to working in the in-between, nebulous spaces and learning how to navigate uncertainty as a way of tackling life and its challenges. We believe that for humans to thrive, individually and collectively, we need to cast off into the seas of uncertainty and abandon the shores of easy answers and solutions.
Uncertainty can be scary, but it can also be exhilarating. Without uncertainty, there would be no adventures, no spark of creation, no innovation nor progress.
