Symbiosis, by design.

​RESEARCH

 Symbiosis is a complicated phenomenon that exists as a biological process and a philosophical perspective. In all the ways it persists through various facets of our reality, it remains an elusive concept yet to be thoroughly defined, identified, and applied.

We conduct research throughout various experimental contexts - many of which occur within daily interactivity of our partner brands. We also play with methods of direct survey.

 

Here are some questions we are attempting to answer:

  1. In what ways is the philosophical identity of the individual tied that of the collective?

  2. Are symbiotic relationships ultimately more beneficial to the individual than predatory or exploitative relationships?

  3. In what ways does symbiosis manifest in the natural world?

  4. In what ways does symbiosis manifest in human society?

  5. ​​In what ways do symbiotic relationships manifest between higher consciousness and it's tools and technology?

  6. In what ways might symbiosis be a valuable philosophy for business application?

  7. In what ways is symbiosis currently applied in the civic or governmental world?

  8. What are the implications of symbiosis for our individual and collective identities and futures?

  9. In what ways will symbiosis manifest that are yet to be discovered?

  

The Symbiosis Institute is an international non-profit research organization intending to create a revolution of thought which will change the way we conceptualize and actualize our personal lives and collective enterprises.

 

We have three primary focuses. Scroll to learn more.

RESEARCH

The study of Symbiosis as it manifests in different areas of life.

EDUCATION

How to teach elements of  sustainable design through symbiosis.

ACTION

How we transform everyday social systems and companies into symbiotic necessities.

 
 

​EDUCATION

The most important aspect of allowing symbiosis to reach its full potential relies on the education of life forms on this as an option. Most people have been accidentally, and perhaps even systematically, educated to believe that competitive, predatory paradigms are the most effective for experiencing a good life--but we believe they are wrong. We intend to communicate the insights of symbiotic possibilities to the human race and all facets of society.

Ways in which we aim to educate:

  • In our personal live

  • In the classroom

  • In the context of small business advisory

  • In the context of large-scale enterprise advisory

We intend to prevent the creation of predatory or exploitative organizations through the dissemination of more effective and harmonious solutions to the same problems. We believe that for every one-sided relationship, there must be a symbiotic alternative that would ultimately provide more effective results.

 

​ACTION

The Symbiosis Institute is interested not just in understanding and educating symbiosis, but in applying these important philosophies to our lives in effective and strategic ways. There are two main ways we intend to do this:

  1. As an incubator to design and implement projects in-house, attempting to solve problems in the every-day world with symbiosis
     

  2. As a non-profit consultancy firm for organizations of all types. We focus on identifying ways to improve individual organizations and the shared experience of all people through symbiotic partnerships to:

    • Philanthropic and humanitarian efforts and non-profit organizations

    • Governmental institutions, agencies, and regulatory boards

    • Private companies and corporations, and their finances

    • The collective interests of the human race and other ecosystems of the earth
