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

Thursday, November 15th, 2018

When I was trying to find Beauty in me against a world constantly telling me otherwise, the greatest affirmation came with the understanding that 1 – I am a system embedded in other systems and composed of other systems, 2 – that I have a mind with the capacity to reflect upon universal patterns, and 3 – that patterns are the genesis of complexity and order.

When this understanding was cemented in my brain, it provided a lens through which I discerned the beautiful pattern of development that sanctions the unfolding of Universal Order.

An Order that came alive in me the instant an ovum and a sperm fused together and began the process of my Becoming. A process that, evolving across eons of time and self-succeeding generations, follows a non-negotiable yet supple pattern of development that drives all systems in Nature to self-organize, bond, self-generate, adapt, self-perpetuate, and transform. This is the universal pattern that meticulously organizes the cells I generate, bonding them together into the preset yet adaptable structure of my body, and giving me a relative degree of freedom to transform not only my life, but Life itself.

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

208 – Beauty …

Thursday, November 1st, 2018

Where is our sense of Beauty gone that we cannot 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 create physical fields of energy in space and time and are driven by a universal tendency toward complexity and order. This tendency is self-evident in the complexity and order of rainbows, language, numbers, spirals, planetary orbits, light, the DNA molecule, inheritance of traits, natural selection, Life, and ultimately, the Universe itself.

Salient scientific theories of the past two centuries – like Relativity (equilibrium), Bell’s Theorem (entanglement), Quantum Theories (freedom) – have discovered underlying patterns of a beautiful Universal Order, that is not only unfolding into complexity, but its progression can be measured with relative precision. This beautiful Order is rooted on a pattern of development that is universal and encompasses the Becoming, Self-organization, Bonding, Self-generation, Adaptation, Self-perpetuation, Transformation of all organic and inorganic systems in Nature. The beauty of this Universal Order is that it charts development yet allows a degree of freedom in adaptation.

Upon conception, each one of us follows the same pattern of development our Universe follows. And like our Universe, we are a link in an ongoing sequence of events with a degree of freedom to create our own sequence of events – physical fields of energy in space and time in which we are the operator, the driving force, the catalyst for transformation.

This is what the Universe is. This is what we are, you and I – reflections of something extraordinarily beautiful: Life transforming itself.
