A great case here made by Alicia Juarrero for the shift to knowing what are the limits of the applicability of Newtonian logic.

Organisations need to be necessarily "messy" in order to handle turbulence. 

Alicia also mentions:
  • Concepts such as utopia appear only in Western philosophical thought as compared to Eastern thought that focuses far more on processes 
    • this one potential danger of the interpretaion of "Teal Organisation" in Western cultures, that it in fact represents a stable and predictable utopia?
