A term used in Howard Bloom's Global Brain.

Diversity generators stir things up, make immune systems function, and "supercharge history" (43). Bloom gives an example of a society that was famous for its diversity generators, ancient Athens.

The two biggest diversity generators are:

1. Overcome a problem by inventing, evolving, or thinking out a solution.

2. Disassociate yourself from those you dislike. Fashion, ideology, ritual, etc.
