211 – Inheritance of Order …

Life manifests in innumerable forms of order and complexity. I am one of them.

I came into Life when an ovum and a sperm fused into a zygote that, with the combined information of the two cells, began to generate, organize, and build the mesmerizingly complex organism of my body; an organism that not only projects a mind capable of reflecting upon itself, but adapts to changing environments with a sense of its own continuity.

The information the original cells brought into my life was already encoded with knowledge acquired across thousands of years of human evolution (my capacity to comprehend symbols, discern patterns, give meaning to words, be awed by beauty, enchanted by love), plus the addition of the latest evolutionary updates to the generic lineage of homo sapiens: the ease, for instance, in our assimilation of the fast-paced advances in technology.

But my origin does not go back to the fusion of the two cells, nor to the ascendance of the first humanoids in Africa, my origin goes back to the beginnings of Life and the inheritance of Order.

Nothing evolves into complexity without a degree of Order.

When the Universe was begotten and began to grow, a creature beyond what our imagination can even fathom came alive knowing how to follow a primordial Order to self-generate, self-organize, bond, thrive, grow, persevere through whatever harsh or plainly miraculous event came next, and then bequeath the lessons learned onto progeny.

The yearning of Life in me, living in me, thriving in me, urging me to self-generate, to self-organize, to persevere, and to bequeath what I have learned, is my inheritance of that primordial Order that, out of seeming chaos, has evolved to awaken in me the awareness of my own awareness.
