Continuity of Civilisation

Ignorance of the consequences of such elementary dependencies as those generated by ubiquitous thermodynamic or informational entropy (in ordered systems on all scales) are at least partially induced by limited exposure to and awareness of the logical facts and functional boundaries of material and physical systems as they are currently known to exist. Organisational ideologies and frameworks optimised for the exploitation of ordered complexity and technology are rarely also oriented towards any utilitarian benefit beyond the direct stakeholders in cultivated, perceived or interpreted commercial value. There may be an irresolvable dissonance and existential bottleneck between competitively self-seeking commercial (and the associated political) incentives and viable long-term continuity of human civilisation.
