“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”

– Benjamin Franklin

We define investing broadly – financial investments are central to our work, of course, but right alongside them we also invest our time, energy, and resources of all sorts. In this section of the library we explore ideas around regenerative investing, general decision-making, data and prediction, risk and uncertainty, luck and skill.


“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”

– Albert Einstein


We are avid practitioners of biomimicry, the conscious emulation of natural wisdom. We look to nature as “model, measure, and mentor” – and even beyond that, as muse. This section explores all sorts of different organisms and ecosystems, our scientific tools for exploring, and the concepts of biophilia, bioinspiration, and biomimicry. WWND? What Would Nature Do?


“Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing wonder and awe: the starry heavens above and the moral law within.”

– Immanuel Kant

A central tenet of our work is that investing is not just a practical necessity; it is embodied belief. Spirit, then, is an essential component of investing, one that is often below the surface and left unexplored. This part of our library includes resources that have helped us to make this often-invisible layer a bit more visible.


“The worker must have bread, but she must have roses too.”

 – Rose Schneiderman

Every healthy ecosystem needs nourishment! This section of the library contains the raw material that provides sustenance for our so-very-human lives. Here you’ll find ideas, art, poetry, music, fiction, and food.
