108 – If Scientific Ideology would give Wholeness a Chance …

Friday, August 15th, 2014

Our current scientific ideology has turned dogmatic, like a religion. And afraid of facing inquiry on the scope of its restrictions on the immensurable aspects of Nature, it lashes out, oftentimes viciously, at those who dare disagree with its intransigence.

Our scientific ideology is dogmatic because by focusing exclusively on Reduction and Isolation, it inhibits the exploration of our Universe as a Whole, therefore excluding the interdependent relationship between the whole and its parts. Under this ideology, we build gigantic machines to isolate atomic particles, believing that the only way we can understand the Universe is by reducing it to its elements; this is akin to trying to understand Life by isolating genes.

There is no denying the enormous advances science has made under current scientific ideology: the DNA molecule is decoded; genes can be manipulated to improve health and extend human life; intelligent devices connect people and spread information; we create destructive weapons with the power to wipe out humanity.

But science does not advance knowledge, for instance, about how a congregation of interdependent cells incites wonder in the human brain; or how we generate cells endowed with the information to create a whole new human being; or how, amid the constant birth and death of cells in our bodies, we remain the same fundamental Self – the person I remember being a child, going to school, falling in love; or how we imprint every cell in our bodies with the same fundamental properties with which our Universe imprint us (self-generate, self-organize, adapt, endure); or how is it that our Universe creates a mind able to reflect upon itself.

Just imagine where humanity would be if our current scientific ideology opens the floodgates to the exploration of Wholeness in Nature, an exploration charged with the profound implications of an interdependent relationship where what makes us whole is fundamentally the same as what makes our Universe whole.

107 – Universal Blueprint (Part III) …

Friday, August 1st, 2014

How different we would be if we accepted the fact that our physical development is pre-determined by a natural ordering process, a blueprint, that maps the position and the role of every component in our bodies, while at the same time giving us a degree of freedom to be creative, disciplined, self-determined.

This ordering process, this blueprint telling our bodies how to self-organize, self-generate, bond, self-regulate, adapt, self-perpetuate, transform, is the pulse of Nature that throbs in us from the moment we are born until the moment we die.

And how even much more different we would be if we accepted the fact that this ordering process, this blueprint that pre-determines our physical development with a degree of freedom in adaptation, is fundamentally the same in everything in our Universe. EVERYTHING, molecules, cells, animals, plants, planets, galaxies, develop through the same process.

The implication of gaining this level of understanding is monumental for us. It leads us to accept the existence of a Universal Blueprint that, mapping development in everything in Nature, allows a degree of freedom to seek higher spheres of complexity – from atomic compounds to galaxies, from instinctive urges to self-conscious Life

This is how Nature evolves. This is how our bodies, pre-determined in our development, ignite the flame of conscious self-awareness in us.
