This paper examines nature behaviour and patterns, finds parallels with social interactions and spots key aspects for developing genuine processes in collaborative and social innovation design. Through Literature review and practice-led research weave observations based on nature ancient wisdom. Nature vital energy is regenerative, it borns and expands naturally into an authentic and synergistic flow. Even entropy, when in equilibrium with this expansion movement, is a transformative agent, recycling the most diverse forms of life. Following a natural cycle of transformation, expansion and retraction. However, an unbalanced entropy energy might provoke an accelerated chaos expansion. On the one hand, nature brings this vital force in an evident and irrefutable way, because it has its integrity preserved, each element has an unshakable connection with its own essence. On the other hand, human social behaviour followed a completely different path. The Cartesian predominant mindset emphasizes standardized and controlled behaviours, seeking formulas of success and venerating specific models and ways of being. Although, it seems to be very efficient, it is highly destructive. It weakens our vital energy triggering an unbalanced entropy development, therefore the destruction of our own essence. As a result, we have been failing dramatically and losing what we care most. Such as freedom, happiness, engagement, ability of love, diversity, richness, creative potential, inner fire, resilience and, at last, our whole existence. Bearing in mind this framework, how can a design process derail this train and trigger genuine and living social processes, as nature does.
