Abstract of the Article
We present a hierarchical triangular framework to guide Anthropocene governing research. We lay out basic system levels and inter-relations. We include a human level, and address the different affects human activities are exerting on the other levels and interrelations. We point out that in more recent times; mans affects have extended more deeply into the lowest levels of earths systems, such as atmosphere and energy. Since our objectives are to discover, organize, deliver and evaluate new knowledge to better govern the Anthropocene, we look at simple cybernetic concepts of effector and feedback via controller. The chances of effective governance can be increased if the important source properties can be identified and their dynamics be used by the cybernetic controller to lower the level of complexity encountered. Research in the Anthropocene needs to ensure that research; from the experimental design, the data collection, the analyses and models; maintain an understanding of the triangle of systems, the interactions and the feedbacks to the systems. Only this way can research support the governance in the Anthropocene, based on environmental data, use of cutting edge research and understanding of the theory of systems.
