167 – There Is a Reason …

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

The mass of a body is a measure of its energy content, and mass and energy mold the shape of space and the flow of time. These are the foundations of Relativity, the reason for our capacity as physical bodies to adapt to diverse environments and seek a degree of stability in our development.

Would we then ever ponder about the reason … because there is a reason … why our bodies instinctively know how to attain stability by balancing our consumption of energy sources (what we eat, absorb, inhale) with the energy we dissipate (the energy we exert as we act and move), so we can grow and develop in relative equilibrium?

Would we ever ponder about the reason why we instinctively possess the capacity to mold the shape of space and the flow of time, so we can change ourselves and our environments?

Even if current scientific ideology insists on claiming that we have come to be what we are by ‘chance’, it is impossible to deny the obvious fact that, throughout our evolution and amid the trials of adaptation, we have persisted with unbending determination and relentless ingenuity to develop a level of complexity in which we are aware of our own awareness. Can this really happen by ‘chance’?

As neurons in the brains of infant human beings evolved into pioneering the advent of conscious self-reflection, so we, as a species, are evolving into pioneering the advent of a higher dimension of conscious self-reflection … could this be what Jung called the ‘collective unconscious’ becoming conscious of itself!

The movement of Nature towards conscious self-awareness is self-evident in us. So, instead of inciting the hate and constant conflict threatening to destroy what has taken Nature eons to achieve, why can we not ponder the reason why we, as far as we know, are the first creatures in Nature aware of our awareness?

166 – To Mold the World and the Flow of Time …

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017

In 1905, in Special Relativity, Einstein showed us that “the mass of a body is a measure of its energy content.” And in 1915, in General Relativity, he showed us that mass and energy mold the shape of space and the flow of time.

Thanks to these insights, we have a greater understanding of the laws that govern the physical world in which we exist. But because we insist on perpetuating the illusion that we, physical beings, are not part of this physical world, we continue to assert the fallacy that we are beyond its laws and that they do not apply to us. Therefore, we continue to believe we are a ‘special creation’ with the right to consume and destroy the natural world without taking responsibility for the consequences of our actions.

This disengagement from reality perpetuates the barbaric greed for control and power that is throwing the human species head-on into an unprecedented collision with the environment in which our lives depend.

This disengagement from reality leads humanity into constant conflict, migrations, deceit, overpopulation, gross inequality. And although there is a clamor for change – knowledge instead of ignorance, understanding instead of intolerance, love instead of hate, peace instead of war, our clamor is silenced swiftly and with astonishing cruelty by those whose greed it threatens.

This disengagement from reality cannot be overturned unless the entire scientific community accepts the fact that their theories pertain to us as elements of the physical world and integrate it into the curriculum of educational systems all over the world.

Relativity is one of the most profoundly misunderstood theories in all of science. We apply it to the atomic and astronomical worlds, but not to ourselves. And we do this knowing, without a hint of a doubt, that we are powerhouses of energy capable of molding the shape of space and the flow of time.

How else can we explain the undeniable fact that we gather the physical power to envision the future and mold our world from within?
