131 – The Order of Nature and Us …

It is relatively easy for us to see a primal Order in the evolutionary progression towards Complexity in Nature (mathematics, language, music, the evolution of Life, the wondrous organization of the brain, consciousness). Yet most of us remain incapable of seeing ourselves as part of that Order.

Our inability to see ourselves as part of the natural Order is the main reason we are breaking the chemical equilibrium of the environment, and ravaging animal and plant life, and inciting division and hate, and driving civilization to face the possibility of its own downfall.

It is thus uncanny to see the natural sciences, the advocates of Knowledge and Understanding, with their magnificent insights into the fundamental aspects of the natural Order, shying away from debunking the illusion that we are not part of that Order.

You and I, as well as anything else in our Universe, are assemblies of multiple parts; each part inherently knowing how to self-generate and self-organize into a cohesive, adaptable, self-perpetuating, self-transforming entity evolving into higher levels of complexity. But we can do this only because we are a part of that Order

We don’t know the Origin of this Order … we might never know … but that we are a part of It, and It is a part of us, and we cannot exist without It, is incontestable.
