230 – We are Elements of Something Extraordinarily Beautiful …

Tuesday, October 15th, 2019

Science has proven the existence, the constancy, the measurability of natural laws in the physical world (motion, gravity, kinetic energy, electromagnetism, relativity, polarity, thermodynamics, etc.). Although these laws exist independently from us, they appear to be implicit in the development of all evolving systems in our Universe, including you and I, for instance, in the way we self-energize and transform energy into motion and action. In the way we generate and conserve an optimum body temperature, in the way we search for equilibrium amid opposing tendencies. But to my knowledge, scientists have never investigated the inherent order that underlies the constancy and tenacity with which we have conformed by these laws across eons of evolutionary time.

These laws are the fundamental building blocks that buttress the steady progression of our Universe towards greater and greater complexity and order: Atoms into molecular compounds, molecules into organic systems, stars and planets into solar systems, solar systems into galaxies, galaxies into the complex Order of our Universe, and so on in between and beyond.

This progression towards complexity and order cannot exist without direction, nor can direction advance towards complexity and order without purpose.

This purpose is how Life has learned to look at itself. This is how you and I – homo sapiens – have come to sense that this order in which we inhabit, is the same order inhabiting us.

There is something extraordinarily beautiful we cannot yet comprehend – and yet we are a part of it as it is a part of us.
