209 – What the previous post (208 – Beauty) means personally to me …

Thursday, November 15th, 2018

When I was trying to find the beauty in me against a world constantly telling me otherwise, the greatest affirmation came with the understanding that 1 – I am an evolving system of incredible complexity, order, and beauty and 2 – that I have a mind with the capacity and the freedom to reflect upon the universal patterns that are the genesis of complexity and beauty.

When this understanding was cemented in my brain, it provided a lens through which I discerned patterns of development that sanction the unfolding of Order in our Universe; an Order that came alive in me the instant an ovum and a sperm fused together to create my existence and to begin the process of Becoming. A process that, evolving across eons of time in self-succeeding generations, follows a supple pattern of development that guides me to self-organize, bond, self-generate, adapt, self-regulate, self-perpetuate, and transform myself and my world with a degree of freedom. This is the universal pattern that meticulously organizes the cells I generate in my body, bonding them together into a preset yet adaptable configuration and endowing me with a relative degree of freedom to transform not only my life, but Life itself.

This is the beauty in me, I am Life transforming itself.

208 – Beauty …

Thursday, November 1st, 2018

Where has our sense of beauty gone that we do not see our reflection in the beauty of our Universe?

Beauty, as we can see it with our naked eyes, with our telescopes, with our microscopes, is rooted in patterns of behavior and structure that tend to unfold toward greater levels of complexity and order. This tendency is self-evident in language, numbers, spirals, planetary orbits, light, the inheritance of traits with a degree of freedom in DNA molecules, Life, and ultimately, the Universe itself.

Salient scientific theories, like Relativity (self-reflective equilibrium), Bell’s Theorem (interconnectedness), Evolution (progression), have discovered underlying patterns of a Universe so beautiful that is not only progressing into complexity and order but allowing its progression to be measured with relative precision. This progression is rooted in a universal blueprint of development that not only encompasses the self-organization, bonding, self-generation, adaptation, self-regulation, self-perpetuation, and transformation of organic and inorganic systems but also allows us to have a degree of freedom to choose.

This is what beauty is … order with a degree of choice.

Life transforming itself.
