155 – A Challenge …

In previous posts I have written about a universal blueprint that connects every component in our Universe, including you and I, with a matrix of fundamental properties: become, self-organize, bond, self-generate, adapt, self-regulate, self-perpetuate, and transform with a degree of freedom to choose. This matrix ensures not only the survival of the components, but the continuity of a process that leads to increasing complexity and, ultimately, Self-awareness (you and I are evidence of this process). But although the fundamental level of our interconnectedness has been obvious for a long time to visionary scientists, philosophers, poets, we have not yet incorporated it into our perception of reality.

It is thus I feel compelled to continue writing about the universal blueprint because our incapacity to perceive how interconnected we are with each other and with the rest of Nature is tearing us apart; we are at war with the creative process that ensures our own survival, we are recklessly changing the chemical equilibrium of the earth’s environment – our source of life, we are killing each other.

To prove the extent of our interconnectedness, I will demonstrate how, without regard to race, belief system, sexual orientation, the properties of the universal blueprint render us all fundamentally the same.

Becoming: Becoming is not of our choice; we are engendered, without our consent, to become participants in the unfolding of an evolutionary process.

Self-organization: The organization of our bodies is not of our choice either; we inherit the blueprint of our species-compelled configuration.

Bonding: We bond in two complementary ways: One is internal, as we bond our components into a cohesive and functional body, and the other is external, as we bond with others and establish relationships.

Self-generation: As enormously complex as our components are, we generate them and make them functional, each one of them.

Adaptation: Whether instinctively or self-determinedly, we strive to adapt to the changes and demands of environments.

Self-regulation: We regulate our bodies by keeping the energy we consume and the energy we exert in relatively constant equilibrium as we grow and develop.

Self-perpetuation: Survival is our most primal urge, and in satisfying it we perpetuate not only our own survival, but the survival of our species and the survival of the unfolding process that engenders us.

Transformation: We are innately endowed with the capacity to transform and be transformed by the world in which we exist, and according to the significance of our actions – what we give or what we take, what we do or do not do – we may transcend into successive generations.

Identical in essence, we are deeply interconnected.

I challenge anybody to look inward into the beauty and unifying force of the universal blueprint within us and continue to disown its equalizing power.
