Summary/Abstract: It is always a challenge to see the world as it is or through someone else’s eyes or through everybody’s eyes or through the lenses of the system that we created in the past several millennia. The present paper endeavors to provide the necessary instruments to use a multilens approach to analyzing how this complex dynamic and adaptive system that we call the world works. Based on this approach, I am analyzing the status of development and evolution of the core of this system, which, for now, it is still the nation-state. I am also using the fact that we created this global system within the eco-system and that, in this moment, if we want to see what are our problems, but also our solutions, we should look at the world as a single organism, but also as distinct parts, because we are still divided between our reductionist approach and an integrated complex approach.
