Drivers of Change: a 2022 update

Several of my blogs have mentioned the drivers of Change, which govern everything around us. Late April 2018, I published my initial blog Drivers of Change, which included a rather complex diagram.

Introduction by LO: This Big Think article could have been much better but it's still a useful introduction. In my view, this article is about panpsychism, or universal and decentralized consciousness. Information is the metric throughout my diagram below, which is part of my 30 July 2021 blog.
