105 – The Creative Order of Nature …

There is a creative Order in Nature … the Implicate Order as David Bohm, the American physicist, called it … that induces all things in Nature to self-organize with a degree of self-determination towards higher orders of complexity. But this Order is not effortlessly perceived by the human mind under current paradigms.

Our understanding of the creative Order in Nature is obstructed by 1 – a scientific Paradigm that teaches us that creativity and self-organization in Nature are but the result of sheer Chance and 2 – by a religious Paradigm that teaches us that Human beings are creative and self-determined because we are separate from and better than Nature. And yet, upon scrutiny of empirical knowledge, the fundamental capacity of all things in Nature to self-organize with creative self-determination becomes apparent:

All things in Nature … without exception … although utterly unique (no other one exactly like me in the entire Universe, no other solar system exactly like ours in the entire Universe), instinctively self-organize into the distinctive characteristics of a common genus.

All things in Nature … without exception … consume energy sources from immediate environments (foods, oxygen for us; kinetic energy, heat for our planet) to fuel the relatively pre-determined yet adaptable organization of our bodies.

All things in Nature … without exception … grow into Complexity out of the fusion of fundamental elements (ovum and sperm for you and I; stars and star remnants for galaxies) sensing the demands of environments and, whether by instinct or self-determination, seeking the equilibrium of Order to endure.

The capacity of all things in Nature to self-organize … and re-organize … with a relative degree of creativity and self-determination toward order and complexity is the primordial Process we have come to call Evolution. And although this creative and self-determined Process is beyond our understanding, it clearly induces all things to reinvent themselves from within … pregnant with ingenuity … bending the rules of genera and environments.

The capacity to perceive this natural Order, and to realize we are a part of it, is the most awe-inspiring feeling a human being can experience. And yet this capacity is obstructed by the same institutions with the most power to help us understand it: a scientific Paradigm bent on teaching us that the creative Order so evident in Nature is nothing but the result of sheer Chance – thus inducing us into uncaring devastation; and a religious Paradigm bent on separating us from the natural Order – thus inducing us into a world of division and conflict.

How different we will be when the creative Order of Nature is not veiled by wars and fear and hate and so much destruction? How different!!!
