Food Web

One of the concepts from early education that has had the most lasting effect on my thinking is the concept of a food web- the idea that every living organism is connected to every other living organism through a complex ‘web’ of relationships. Food webs are ways of visualizing how producers relate to prey or how the elimination of one component of the system may result in the collapse of the entire structure.
I think this is an important construct to consider when contemplating the shifting of our times. What are the food webs in your daily life? In your community? In the larger political, social and economic spheres? What elements are related? What is their function? Their relationships to one another?
Perhaps we are more connected than we believe.
