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 relative 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 what is consumed (what we eat, absorb, inhale) with what is dissipated (the energy we exert as we act and move), so we can unfold in continuous stages of relative equilibrium?

And 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 in 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 unfold into a level of complexity in which we are aware of our own awareness; this cannot happen by ‘chance’.

As neurons in the infant brain of a human being have evolved to pioneer the advent of conscious self-reflection, so we, as a species, have evolved to become pioneers in the advent of a higher dimension of conscious self-reflection … could this be Jung’s ‘collective unconscious’ becoming conscious of itself!

The movement of Nature towards self-awareness is self-evident because it is in us. Can we then ponder about the undeniable Fact that we are, as far as we know, the first in Nature aware of our own awareness, instead of inciting the hate and constant conflict threatening to destroy what has taken Nature eons to achieve?

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

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017

In 1905, in special relativity’s e=mc2, Einstein showed that “the mass of a body is a measure of its energy content.” And in 1915, in general relativity, he showed that mass and energy mold the shape of space and the flow of time.

Thanks to these insights we have a greater understanding of some of the laws that govern the physical world. But because we insist on perpetuating the illusion that we … physical beings … are not part of the physical world, we continue to believe in the fallacy that we are beyond these laws, that they do not apply to us; thus we continue to believe that we are a ‘special creation’ with the right to consume and destroy without having to be responsible for the consequences of our actions.

This disengagement from Reality is perpetuating the barbaric greed for control and power that is throwing us head on into an unprecedented collision with the environment in which our lives depend.

This disengagement from Reality is leading Humanity in the wrong direction … constant conflict, migrations, deceit, overpopulation, gross levels of 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 being 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, and disseminates the Fact that their theories pertain to us … physical beings … as elements of the physical world, and for this Fact to be integrated in the curriculum of educational systems all over the world. Because the kind of change needed to lead us in a different direction must be based on Knowledge.

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. We do this knowing, without a hint of a doubt, that we are self-powered congregations of atomic particles capable to mold the shape of space and the flow of time. And as such, we are powerhouses of energy.

How else can we explain the undeniable, the beautiful Fact, that from within we gather the power to envision a future; and do we not, in its quest, mold our world and the passage of time?
