108 – If Scientific Ideology would give Wholeness a Chance …

Friday, August 15th, 2014

Our current scientific ideology has turned dogmatic … like a religion … afraid of facing inquiry on its restricting scope, and lashing out, hard, at those who dare disagree with its intransigence.

Our scientific ideology is dogmatic because it limits our understanding of Nature by focusing only on Reduction and Isolation (building gigantic apparatus to isolate atomic particles believing that this is the way to understand our Universe, or thinking that the processes of Life can be reduced by isolating genes), while completely excluding Wholeness, afraid to face its unavoidable implication of an intimate, interdependent relationship between the Whole and its parts.

There is no denying the advances(?) made under our current scientific ideology … the DNA molecule has been decoded and genes are manipulated and exploited; more intrusive devices are invented to reach depleting and harder to extract resources; ever more destructive weapons are created with the power to wipe out Humanity many times over … but this ideology does not advance Knowledge of what we are; Knowledge of how a congregation of interdependent cells can incite the feeling of wonder; Knowledge of how every cell engendered by our bodies knows the color of our skin and the type of our blood; Knowledge of how we endow specialized cells with the information to re-create a whole new being; Knowledge of how, amid the constant birth and death of cells in our bodies, we remain fundamentally the same Self; Knowledge of how the Primordial Force of Nature, with its knack for Complexity and Order, has come to create the self-reflective mind.

It has taken us eons of evolutionary time to develop … as far as we know … the highest level of self-awareness in Nature. But dominated by an ideology that inhibits our understanding of the intimate, interdependent relationship of the whole with its parts, we are still pretty much ignorant about the relationship in which we, as a whole, encode every cell in our bodies with a blueprint (self-generate, self-organize, adapt, endure) that ensures our development into a cohesive yet supple whole; a relationship which is fundamentally the same as the one that encodes everything in Nature, including you and me, with the blueprint (self-generate, self-organize, adapt, endure) that ensures the development of the evolutionary Process that makes our Universe into a cohesive yet supple whole.

We are a self-generating organization of myriad components that, instinctively working together under a primal plan, creates in us what we experience as the phenomenon of the Mind. But we have no idea how or why.

Just imagine where Humanity could be if our current scientific ideology opens the floodgates to Wholeness, with its profound implication that what makes us whole is fundamentally the same as what makes our Universe whole.

107 – Universal Blueprint (Part III) …

Friday, August 1st, 2014

It changes us, completely, to figure out that our physical existence is pre-determined by a common Blueprint … a natural ordering process which not only determines our development – mapping the position, the organization, the role, the duration of our components; plotting loosely our evolution; charting our process of self-generation; inciting our survival instincts; defining the length of our existence – but also endowing us with a degree of choice in adaptation to transform ourselves and our world. This common Blueprint is the pulse of Nature in each and all of us, throbbing in our veins from the moment we are born, until the moment we die.

And it changes us even more to comprehend that this common Blueprint, this natural ordering process, pre-determines not just us but everything EVERYTHING … in our Universe (atomic particles, molecules, cells, all forms of life, planets, solar systems, galaxies, clusters of galaxies); mapping organization, role, evolution, relative duration; charting the process of self-generation; inciting the instinct to survive, and yet allowing a degree of choice in adaptation.

The implications of this realization are profound: That since the inception of our Universe a primordial blueprint has been mapping … with creativity and a degree of flexibility … the development of very high levels of Complexity, proves the existence of a creative, disciplined, determined, resourceful and yet supple Order; the same the primal Order that maps in us the development of our bodies with creativity, discipline, determination, resourcefulness and yet endowing us with the flexibility to transform ourselves and our world.

In the midst of trial and error, creation and destruction, this is how Nature evolves; allowing the transformative progression of Order to develop the levels of Complexity that have ignited the flame of conscious self-awareness in us.
