The Dark Forest
/ Where +Wicked Problems are found.
- +Wicked Problems
High level overview
- The Dark Forest is a mental realm created by the absence of connection to our intuition, objective evidence about the world, and social agreements.
- This mental realm is filled with is small problems that are missed by our blind spots and necessary prioritization of problems.
- You could also call it the collective shadow of civilization.
- We can personify the Dark Forest with the archetype of the +Chaos Monkey — which is the agent that seems to throw wrenches into everything we do, no matter how much we try to prevent it. Alan Watts calls it the element of irreducible rascality… which gives it a bit of an endearing quality.
