19 – I am not ‘me’ or ‘them’, I am both.

Wars, genocide, hate, bigotry, rape, deceit, starvation, decimation of species, imposition of ignorance, unparalleled levels of corruption that send millions into abject poverty and despair while few are allowed to embezzle and accumulate obscene wealth … As we look at Humanity it is obvious that the premises of the Paradigm we live by are not only wrong, but extremely biased and destructive. Beliefs in a species that is separate from and superior to Nature, and that we have the god-given right to control and exploit, are devastating visions to live by.

We are not born upon the earth to rule and destroy, we are born out of the earth, gestated and nurtured to grow into organic systems that depend on the environment for survival. We grow out of the earth not by ‘divine intervention’ but as common compounds of cells, a pulsing heart, a driving sexuality, and a mind that thinks and reflects and make choices but cannot exist without Nature.

The purpose of Vision for a New World is to introduce a New Paradigm based, not on the ancient and destructive premises of separation and control, but on the premise that all natural systems – atoms, cells, human beings, planets, stars, galaxies – are united through a Universal Blueprint, a master plan for building a cohesive yet adaptable structure/organism/system innately driven towards order and complexity (see Post 11 for a list of Theories that describe some of the characteristics of this Blueprint).

Let’s try some universal characteristics of the Universal Blueprint, the master plan on you and me: We both grow a relatively pre-determined structural design, and keep it cohesive and give it direction and feeling through the interconnectedness of the entire range of our components (Bell’s Theorem). We feel this intimate interconnectedness of everything in us in conscious and unconscious ways; consciously, in the intensity and untamed pleasure-pain-agony-glory of an orgasm; unconsciously, in the way we maintain our bodies in optimum yet fluctuating states of equilibrium while consuming and dissipating energy sources (Relativity) i.e. we eat and rest to re-store spent energy, and then we use the re-stored energy to fuel actions and reactions until we get spent again. Although we are pre-determined by internal and external environments, we are also endowed with a relative degree of freedom to affect or be affected by the evolutionary movement in which we exist (Evolution) i.e. we can change our surroundings and our lives, and we can be changed by them, can we not?

Another universal characteristic is the concept of Complementarity in Nature. Introduced by Niels Bohr, the Danish Physicist who was one of the founders of Quantum Theory, the concept substantiates the fact that natural systems have properties that may appear contradictory but are instead complementary and essential to the system: Light, for instance, is made of atomic particles we call Photons, and it is also made of the wave-like patterns photons create as they interact with environments. It is obvious that for analytical purposes we can certainly study individual photons with the exclusion of light waves, and vice versa, but those analyses are nothing more than complementary expressions of the same phenomenon. Thus, depending on the observation, we may say that Light is either particle-like or wave-like. But Light is not one or the other, it is both.

 It is the same with our Mind. Our brain is made of cells we call Neurons, yet it is also the wave-like patterns neurons create (thought) as they interact with environments. It is true that we can study a single neuron with the exclusion of the wave-like patterns of our thoughts, and vice versa, but those are just complementary expressions of the phenomenon of the Mind. The Mind is not one or the other, it is both.

It is the same with Humankind. Our species is made of unique individual human beings like you and I, yet it is also the wave-like patterns of growth and motion and direction that as a multi-billion-unit-organism we make as we interact with environments. It is obvious that we can focus on a single human being with the exclusion of the whole species, and vice versa, but those are just complementary expressions of the same phenomenon. Humankind is not one or the other, we are both at the same time.

In other words, we are individual and utterly unique AND the species we call Humankind, not just ‘me’ or ‘them’, both at once.

 This is a beautiful Truth. But we don’t want any of it! Our political, economic and religious doctrines do not want us to understand that our individuality is an expression of one powerful and amazing organism that, although relatively determining our evolution, we can also determine. The truth frightens us. Its seekers are punished. And we don’t want to be punished.

It is not a legitimate truly massive affirmation, however it is all of I possibly could develop after looking at the following. You are aware of a great deal about it issue. A case in point which you forced me to would like to learn more details on that. Your blog can be this stepping-stone, my buddy. Just oversees for this issue.

  43. I am seriously not as well familiar with this subject but I do like to check-out blogs for layout suggestions and fascinating subjects. You actually described a that I usually do not care very much about and built it terribly fascinating. That is a great weblog that I’ll take note of. Find out advice on site
