47 – A Vision for a New World …

For reasons unbeknown to most of us, scientists refuse to apply the astonishing discoveries they have made about the physical world to the Human Being (perhaps the only exception is the theory of Evolution).

Advances in science leave no doubt that the human being, like cells and planets and everything else in Nature, is a physical system made out of atomic particles, yet most scientists have not been able to break away from the centuries-old Paradigm of the ‘superiority’ of man over Nature, thus persisting on separating us from the natural world.

Undeniable as it is that we are highly evolved creatures, we do abide by the same universal rules that apply to atoms, cells, and galaxies. This would be obvious to us if we were taught to take well-proven theories like

  • Bell’s Theorem
  • Einstein’s Relativity
  • The Laws of Thermodynamics
  • Bohr’s Complementarity
  • Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle
  • Pascal’s Probability Principle
  • Prigogine’s Dissipative Structures
  • Maturana & Valera’s Autopoietic Systems
  • Mandelbrot’s Set
  • Quantum Field Theory

and, like pieces in a mosaic, put them together into a view of our Universe we’ve never seen before: A living, nurturing and evolving organism founded on Cohesiveness, Equilibrium, Continuity, Pliability, Tenacity, Self-organization, Uncertainty, Chaos, Possibility, Self-perpetuation, Transformation, Order, Pre-determination, and a relative degree of freedom to adapt.

But instead of trying to understand our Universe as a cohesive whole, the current scientific emphasis on Reductionism and Separation is intent on isolating the smallest atomic particle, believing that by doing so we will ultimately come to understand the true nature of Reality. It is like trying to understand the mystery of the human mind by isolating a neuron.

As the mind of the pre-Copernican/pre-Galilean human being had not made the neuronal connections to comprehend the fact that the earth is an element of a system subject to the centrifugal forces of a common star, so the mind of ‘modern’ human beings has not been able to make the neuronal connections to comprehend the fact that we are elements of a Universal System that imprints each and all of its components with a pre-determined yet flexible set of universal rules by which to exist and evolve.

To delineate some of these universal rules let me take a few of the already proven scientific theories, and apply them to three common universal components: a cell, a human being, and a galaxy.

  • For a cell, a human being, a galaxy, to be cohesive, self-directed, and have a continuous and dynamic form of existence, the entire range of our components … no matter how small or large, simple or complex … must be thoroughly inter-connected (Bell’s Theorem).
  • For a cell, a human being, a galaxy, to have a relatively stable existence, a more or less constant equilibrium between energy consumed and energy released must be attained and sustained. Without this equilibrium, we cease to exist (Relativity & Thermodynamics).
  • For a cell, a human being, a galaxy, to grow into a more or less pre-determined structural design while remaining distinctive, we must adhere to a pre-set developmental process that allows a degree of freedom in adaptation (Complementarity).
  • For a cell, a human being, a galaxy, to perpetuate a changing form of existence, we must be able to unfold amidst the uncertainty and probability of myriad outcomes (Uncertainty & Probability Principles).
  • For a cell, a human being, a galaxy, to nourish the emergence of a form of existence totally dependent on energy sources, we must be able to adapt to their availability or lack of it. Once sources of energy become exhausted or are no longer available, we either adapt to new sources or cease to exist (Dissipative Structures).
  • For a cell, a human being, a galaxy, to integrate as a component of an ongoing evolutionary process, we must be able to self-perpetuate by generating our own components and creating an interactive boundary to sense the environment (Autopoietic Systems).
  • For a cell, a human being, a galaxy, to organize diverse components into a shared structural form, we must be able to reiterate the guidelines of a primal developmental model (Mandelbrot Set).
  • For a cell, a human being, a galaxy, to be able to manipulate and be manipulated by the movement of evolution, we must be catalysts for transformation (Quantum Field Theory).

Although undeniably unique, we do obey a Universal plan that imprints us all with supple rules to emerge, while endowing us with a relative degree of freedom to adapt and affect our environments.

Once we are able to incorporate into the neural connections of our brains the fact that we do abide by the same rules for atoms, cells, or galaxies, the path to humanity’s higher level of understanding will open before us.
