152 – On Fields and Forces …

Why are ‘trained’ scientists so reticent to accept that those theories on which they base their understanding of the biological and physical world also apply to us, human beings, as biological and physical systems?

Why can they not see that we are flowing fields through which energy runs, contracts, and expands? Why can they not see that as the flow of energy passing from atom to atom and cell to cell is a force of transformation, so is the flow of energy passing from person to person? Why can they not see that as the forces of transformation created by atoms and cells are powerful and tender, creative and destructive, instinctive and self-determined, rigid and supple, and, oh, so pregnant with the potential to transform the course of the evolutionary processes through which they are transmitted, so are the forces of transformation passing through us?

Fields of energy are forces with which bodies cannot only transform themselves and others but potentially transform multitudes and even future generations. Some examples of these forces in our history are individuals like Jesus, Hitler, or Gandhi, whose strong convictions became forces of transformation that incited multitudes into action.

But on a more personal level, think about falling in love. Think about how intently we focus our entire being on getting the One we love to love us back. Every cell in our bodies responds to our feelings, desires, fears, anxieties. Our moods, sensations, heartbeat, temperature are enhanced, and our bodies respond accordingly; we sweat, tremble, ache to touch and be touched. Our desire ignites a collective call in our bodies to fulfill the primal mandates to belong, self-generate, and transcend. And whether or not we achieve our goal, a field of energy is created in which we become a force of transformation.

It is indisputable that, like atoms and cells, we interact with each other and with our world by transforming energy into forces that can be strong and weak, destructive and creative, negative and positive, instinctive and self-determined. But our scientific endeavor has grown entangled in the illusion of our separation from Nature to consider the possibility that our fundamental interactions are not different from those of the world of their theories. Would it not be exciting if scientists, instead of emphasizing our separation from Nature by excluding us from their theories, transform the search for what they are already searching, a Unified Theory, by including us?
