On Speed

The difference between industry and Nature is in speed. Industrial speed always aim for maximum while Nature's speed is set on optimum. Our systems, be it economic, technologies, the built-environment or city-living should return to be set on the optimum not others. And this essentially call for acknowledging ecological limits - the carrying capacity - of our planet and design, devise and plan our living system in harmony with this understanding.
