88 – The Absurdity of the Corporate Mind …

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

Disregarding the obvious Fact that our increasing levels of consumption and exploitation are throwing out of equilibrium the stable environment that has allowed Humanity to thrive, most of us continue to believe in the dangerous fallacy that Nature will sustain our unsustainable growth because we are separate and special.

We are not.

Under this false belief we have created an absurd world; a world where we permit multinational corporations to unashamedly bare the lowest levels of rationality, the highest degree of greed, and the tyrannical power to pillage natural resources without a trace of accountability; we have created a world where the poor and disadvantaged are exploited and pushed into the most cruel and horrible levels of inhumanity; a world where the earth from which we emerge into existence is perceived as an unlimited resource for man to exploit; a world where the divisive nature of organized religions and the categorization of human beings into  disconnected and unrelated factions incite conflict and the scourge of scapegoating to avoid responsibility for our actions.

All this absurdity obscures from us the beautiful Symmetry that binds all natural systems … be it an atom, a cell, a human being, our species, our environments, our earth, our solar system … into a creative, self-generating and self-organizing whole. But this Symmetry is bound by a non-negotiable pre-condition, an unbendable law which demands that, for a system like our species to continue to unfold into a viable future, we must find equilibrium between the energy we consume and the energy we dissipate; if we cannot find this equilibrium we will either be re-organized or die out.

Could the minds behind the corporate mentality really believe that they can bend this unbending natural law and continue to ravage until there is no more to ravage? Their rapacious greed and the extent of their environmental ignorance are making our earth ill. She will recover and re-organize as she has done many, many times in the past, but we … the ones now making her ill … will we?

The answer is No if we allow the absurd tyranny of corporations to continue unabated. The answer is Yes if we use the medium of the Internet as a strong, united voice to demand Rationality and Respect.

87 – We Mirror our Universe (Part II)

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Our organic senses … Vision, Hearing, Taste, Smell, Touch … are the tools developed throughout our evolution to help us adapt and survive, but they are not capable to sense beyond our immediate environment, and thus the Universal Characteristics mirrored in our bodies are veiled.

But with the power of our imagination … our sixth sense? … we do have the capacity to sense beyond our limitations and ‘see’ that … mirroring our Universe … we endow everything created within our bodies (cells, nervous system, etc.) with a degree of freedom not only to regenerate and reshape us, but also to allow us to effect change;

We can ‘see’ that … like everything in Nature … we are a dynamic and self-propelled system that is never at rest even when we appear at rest;

We can ‘see’ that … mirroring our Universe … we uphold a more or less stable process of unfolding  throughout the ups and downs of our existence and the constant demands of our environment;

We can ‘see’ that … mirroring our Universe … we continuously convert energy into the mass of our bodies, hold it deftly and fleetingly into our unfolding form, and then, transformed, release it back as motion and determination;

We can ‘see’ that … mirroring our Universe … we are driven by Primordial Forces that incite us to bond, to consume, to create and recreate, to move on;

We can ‘see’ that … mirroring our Universe … we could not unfold unless every single one of our component elements has … encoded in its core … the knowledge to follow a pre-determined yet open pathway which paves the way for what is to be created, and how it is to be perpetuated.

Implausible as these universal similarities may seem under a perception of Reality based solely on the limited capacity of our organic senses, the tangible connection with our Universe they imply is unavoidable.

‘Seeing’ our connection with the Universe … if we are to survive into the Future … will change us completely: It will make us ‘see’ how deeply immersed we are in Nature; it will make us ‘see’ that, never forgetting that Nature will always have the last word, we do possess a degree of freedom to effect change.

Nobody will lead us freely to unleash the power of our imagination, neither Science nor Organized Religion nor any current educational system with their servitude to self-serving interests (power, profit, control); this is something we most discover ourselves with the simple knowledge that, with our incontestable possession of a degree of freedom to ‘see’ beyond our limitations, we have the amazing capacity to ‘see’ how in the most fundamental characteristics of our Existence we do mirror our Universe.
