For example, by playing with the complex, chaotic dynamics of the atmosphere, a balloon pilot can "steer" a balloon to a desired location. By understanding that our ecosystems, social systems, and economic systems are interconnected, we can hope to avoid actions which may end up being detrimental to our long-term well-being. http://fractalfoundation.org/resources/what-is-chaos-theory/
This is an important idea. How Nature works is through an interaction of all the parts. If you pull on one string of the web, the entire web is affected. In other words, what we call God, or what I call Sophia or Wisdom, is a verb and that verb is the process of the whole.
Standardization and top down management is NOT Sophia's main bag. Thus, a baby builds herself in utero via an interaction of the parts. Each part thus contains knowledge of the whole. A particular cell becomes a liver cell or heart cell, based on the needs of the entire system. The baby in essence builds herself. No external conductor. (Should we, perhaps, call DNA God?) Sophia IS everywhere. Even in your bowels.
So, do we truly need Kings, Judges, and Queens? What does this mean for top-down rule? Perhaps we are more like a jam session than an orchestra with a Koch Brother conductor standing upon pedestal? Yes, there is chaos in the beginning. Then you get in the groove! Perhaps we can specify talents in our communities and consider those with those talents to be instrumental in helping the community thrive? Life is a jam session!
Is the realization of a jam session in lieu of a perfectionist conductor the beginning towards bottom-up governance? Is that governance also in the way the universe works? Is our idealistic and top-down perfect God sitting in a perfectionistic Heaven, or in the executive chambers of Fox News? Or is He/She experiencing the turmoil of evolution and devolution?
What if God/Goddess were one of us?
To clarify, listen to this song by Joan Osborne:
