The Origin of Life Patterns: In the Natural Inclusion of Space in Flux
This book delves into the realm of human psychology and the evolution of living systems, challenging the conventional notion of space and boundaries as rigid and discrete entities. Instead, the author presents them as sources of continuous flow and dynamic distinction, offering a fresh perspective on evolution as a fluid exploration of renewing possibilities.
NaturesScope: Unlocking Our Natural Empathy and Creativity
For millennia, we have attempted to understand and educate ourselves about nature through our own perspective, using telescopes, microscopes, and our own eyesight. This leads us to view nature as an objective, rigidly framed entity that exists outside of us, on which we project our own psychology. However, this one-sided perspective has caused deep conflicts with our relationship of nature and with each other. “NaturesScope” offers a new perspective, from the viewpoint of nature itself, which brings humans and the world into a more compassionate and passionate relationship.
Degrees of Freedom: Living in Dynamic Boundaries
This book explains how uncertainty in living systems enables us to thrive in constantly changing circumstances. Highlighting the importance of the interplay of associative and dissociative processes.

Dr Alan Rayner on Interrelating
Since 2000, he has been pioneering awareness of ‘natural inclusion’, the co-creative evolutionary flow of all forms of life in receptive-responsive spatial and energetic relationship. This awareness enables us to understand ourselves and other life forms as dynamic expressions of our natural habitat, not independent subjects and objects.
