25 – Universal Blueprint (Part I) …

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

“We are all in this together”. We hear these words all the time. But do we really understand what they mean? Really!

I think the word Togetherness has lost its meaning because it is used so much in empty rhetoric. Togetherness … of all races, of all beliefs, of all Humankind … is not a welcome idea to the corporate elite that promotes the fallacy of ‘Separation’. To them, and to the corporate media that without principles spreads their destructive doctrines, we are nothing more than gullible and greedy consumers, lured into assenting to the twisted notions that our significance as human beings is measured by how much we possess, and by how well we manage to avoid taking responsibility for our acquiescence to our own destruction.

There is no easy way to state the obvious: If we continue to accept the fallacy of Separation, its dire consequences … war, environmental degradation, starvation, ignorance, cruelty, intolerance, deceit, hate … might wipe us off the face of the earth.

Perhaps beginning to understand what we truly are in the scheme of Nature through our own common sense, and not through the irrationality of those who want to keep us ignorant, could be a good stepping stone to reverse this madness.

  •    An atom is a congregation of intimately interrelated components (energy, electrons, nucleus) temporarily bonded together into a complex yet dynamic and pliable system. An atom is particle-like in its utter distinctiveness and wave-like in its participation as a common complement of the ebbs and flows of a parent system. An atom re-generates its existence through a self-reflective process in which its intake and release of energy sources is sustained in equilibrium. An atom embodies a relatively pre-determined form innately endowed with the capacity to manipulate and be manipulated by the movement of Evolution. An atom is a catalyst for transformation.
  •    A cell is a congregation of intimately interrelated components temporarily bonded together into a complex yet dynamic and pliable system. A cell is particle-like in its utter uniqueness and wave-like in its participation as a common complement of the ebbs and flows of a parent system. A cell re-generates its existence through a self-reflective process in which its intake and release of energy sources is sustained in equilibrium. A cell embodies a relatively pre-determined form innately endowed with the capacity to manipulate and be manipulated by the movement of Evolution. A cell is a catalyst for transformation.

The earth is particle-like in its utter uniqueness and wave-like in its participation as a common complement of the ebbs and flows of a parent system. The earth re-generates its existence through a self-reflective process in which its intake and release of energy sources is sustained in equilibrium. The earth embodies a relatively pre-determined form innately endowed with the capacity to manipulate and be manipulated by the movement of Evolution. The earth is a catalyst for transformation.
  •    A galaxy is a congregation of intimately interrelated components temporarily bonded together into complex yet dynamic and pliable system. A galaxy is particle-like in its utter uniqueness and wave-like in its participation as a common complement of the ebbs and flows of a parent system. A galaxy re-generates its existence through a self-reflective process in which its intake and release of energy sources is sustained in equilibrium. A galaxy embodies a relatively pre-determined form innately endowed with the capacity to manipulate and be manipulated by the movement of Evolution. A galaxy is a catalyst for transformation.
  •    A human being is a congregation of intimately interrelated components temporarily bonded together into a complex yet dynamic and pliable system. We are particle-like in our utter uniqueness and wave-like in our participation as a common complement of the ebbs and flows of a parent system, our species. We re-generate our existence through a self-reflective process that sustains our intake and release of energy sources in equilibrium. We embody a relatively pre-determined yet adaptable form innately endowed with the capacity to manipulate and be manipulated by the movement of Evolution. We are catalysts for transformation.

See the similarities? The homogeneity? The interrelatedness? The Universal Blueprint in all of us?

There is a physical bond between all of us that our senses do not allow us to perceive. Like schools of fish in water, we are immersed in a medium that not only sustains our existence, but also incites us, by seeking pleasure, to bond and re-generate so our parent system … our species … may evolve and survive into the future.

Appearance of Separation is an illusion. We are in this together, intimately linked by the same blueprint.

24 – We are Universal Systems …

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

How can we not accept the self-evident Fact that we are Universal Systems? And yet we can indiscriminately accept the deceit of religious doctrines and the destruction of political and economic ideologies. How can we?

Is it not obvious that, like any naturally evolving system in Nature, we consume energy sources from the environment, transform them into the process of self-activation and self-generation, and in this process dissipate other forms of energy back into the environment? Is it not self-evident that as in atomic particles, cells, planetary systems, this process makes us sources of transformation?

But instead of promoting this self-evident Fact of our own nature, most of our educational systems promote instead the divisiveness of religious beliefs, and the consumerism and constant conflict of economic and political ideologies; even though it is glaring that divisiveness, consumerism and constant conflict are the main factors giving us license to destroy the same environment that gives us life. This is how badly indoctrinated we are.

In the same way human understanding was furthered once we accepted the Fact that it is the earth that circles the sun, we will further our understanding once we accept the incontrovertible Fact that we are, like atomic particles, cells, solar systems, galaxies, universal systems created with the relative degree of freedom in adaptation that makes us sources of transformation.

Once we perceive ourselves as universal systems:

  •    We will understand that we are embedded in the dimensions of a multi-dimensional universe: The dimensions of atomic particles, molecular compounds, cellular organisms, planetary systems, galactic systems, etc., etc.
  •    We will comprehend that perception is relative to the dimension from which it is perceived, i.e. we may be perceived as an entire universe from the dimension of an atom, and as an atom from the dimension of the solar system.
  •    We will be able to recognize the limits and the possibilities of perception.
  •    We will be able to see the interconnections, the intimate interdependence, the utter uniqueness, and that shared commonalities that are fundamental to everything.

Once we perceive ourselves as universal systems, we will understand that, no matter how insignificant or immense we might appear to be from other perspectives, the impact of our transformation is a measure of our transcendence … Galilei, Gandhi, an ancient sea creature daring into the unknown, a planet consenting to the emergence of self-awareness … are a few salient examples.

Once we open our intellects to new aspects of Reality; once we let our minds be led by critical thinking and common sense, instead of the irrationality and greed of others; once we can perceive ourselves as universal systems and know that we are innately endowed with a relative degree of freedom to shape our world, we will be able to accept the undeniable Fact that we are, each one of us, catalysts for transformation.
