236 – A Cell, a Human Being, the Earth, the Galaxy …

At first look, it may be difficult to see a relationship between a cell, a human being, the Earth, the Milky Way other than we are all in the same Universe. We obviously have different structural organizations, exist in different magnitudes, and unfold according to the different environments in which we exist.

But without disregarding our differences, we are in fact more closely related than we may think. Cells, human beings, the Earth, the Milky Way, and everything else in Nature, come into existence imprinted with the characteristics of a universal blueprint that is not only the same in all of us but that maps the steps we all must follow to survive.

We all come into existence as components of a larger system that not only regulate us but that can be regulated, and as a congregation of smaller systems that not only regulate us but that can be regulated.

We all develop into a relatively pre-ordained yet supple form of existence through the counterbalance between the energy sources we consume and the energy sources we exert.

We are all created with the innate capacity to self-organize, self-generate, self-regulate, self-perpetuate, transform, while maintaining a fundamental configuration.

But of all these universal characteristics, it is our capacity for transformation that gives us the power to unfold into higher degrees of complexity and order.

And although imprinted with the same characteristics as everything else in Nature, we are one of those beautiful creatures in which Life has evolved the capacity to wonder about the wonder of itself?

Can we ever acknowledge this about us?
