208 – Beauty …

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.
