# The global mess

The concept of a “mess” (Russel 1974) describes such system of interrelated problems and solutions, where solutions to most problems produce other problems, and weirdly, some problems are in fact solutions to other problems.

In order to deal with this supersystemic "mess" of problems and solutions, we need to develop a schema that helps us understand it's properties and behaviours.

- The global mess is both the problem and the solution
- The global mess is both context and function
- The global mess is a strange loop
- The global mess is non-linear
- The global mess is a simulacrum
- The global mess is meshwork
- The global mess is environing(ambient)
- The global mess is both global and local
