Globalance: Dynamic, not Static

Globalance is not static. It could be understood as a stable balance, always remaining in the middle of the opposites in order to avoid imbalances and extremism. But life is always on the move and per definition never stands still as long as the heart of animals and humans is beating and plants are growing. As the world is life, the whole world is always changing and developing, in the rhythm of day and night, seasons, societies, powers and cultures coming and disappearing. Therefore, a global balance cannot be a static, everlasting balance.

Globalance is dynamic. Life, as balance includes always constant movement. A dynamic balance is the capacity of an entity (a person, an object, a system) to move between opposites back and forth in a way which enables balance. If one (external) force pushes the entity to one side, the entity has to counterbalance on the other side. What is a natural law in physics and kinetics, is more complicated in human society. Societies do not function like a mechanical rule, but speaking of a dynamic balance as in kinetics is a parable for the concept of balance to be envisaged in a globalised world. Dynamic balance in society needs the vision and will to balance ethical values.
