58 – Universal Blueprint (Part II) …

When asked about the most outstanding fact about the Universe he could share with us, Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson said It is the Knowledge that we are part of the Universe, that we are in this Universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is the Fact that the Universe is in us.

It is puzzling to realize how few of us actually incorporate this Fact … that the Universe is in us … in our conception of Reality – even if it is Self-evident. It brings to memory our pre-Copernican era, when the human mind was not yet able to conceptualize the Fact that the earth rotated around the Sun.

The Universe is in us is self-evident because every one of its component elements … from miniscule atomic particles to gigantic galaxies, from single-celled to multi-celled organisms like us … follow a set of universal rules … a Universal Blueprint:

• Human beings must keep our intake and release of energy sources in relative equilibrium to attain some level of Permanence; atoms must keep their intake and release of energy sources in relative equilibrium to attain some level of Permanence; galaxies must keep their intake and release of energy sources in relative equilibrium to attain some level of Permanence.
• We must develop into relatively self-sufficient entities but obeying a pre-established configuration; atoms must develop into relatively self-sufficient entities but obeying a pre-established configuration; galaxies must develop into relatively self-sufficient entities but obeying a pre-established configuration.
• We must nourish and give direction to our component elements to keep them dynamic and ordered; atoms must nourish and give direction to their component elements to keep them dynamic and ordered; galaxies must nourish and give direction to their component elements to keep them dynamic and ordered.
• We must adapt to changing environments by shaping and being shaped by the primordial movement of Evolution; atoms must adapt to changing environments by shaping and being shaped by the primordial movement of Evolution; galaxies must adapt to changing environments by shaping and being shaped by the primordial movement of Evolution.
• We must tend to bond and to congregate into increasingly complex systems, inciting renewal and innovation; atoms must tend to bond and to congregate into increasingly complex systems, inciting renewal and innovation; galaxies must tend to bond and to congregate into increasingly complex systems, inciting renewal and innovation.
• We must enter Existence endowed with the potential to transform ourselves and our world; atoms must enter Existence endowed with the potential to transform themselves and their world; galaxies must enter Existence endowed with the potential to transform themselves and their world.

These rules are non-negotiable; without them no element, no creature, no natural system in our Universe can exist for an extended period of time nor evolve into complexity.

This all encompassing and overpowering Set of Instructions, this magnificent and creative and mysterious Order guiding our bodies and the elements that compose them and the systems in which we are immersed, is the Universe in us. It is the Order that keeps myriad elements in my body working together, demanding nourishment, inciting renewal. It is the Order that keeps our planet relatively stable for eons of time so we can evolve and flourish.

If we survive the devastating effects on our environment of the Paradigm currently dominating us through Division and Unsustainable Growth and Destructive Consumerism, if we are able to free ourselves from the dogmatic beliefs that enslave us to restrictive worldviews, it is inevitable for Humankind to take a monumental step in our development as we incorporate into our minds the Knowledge that the Universe is in us, that we are part of its Nature as its Nature is part of us.

Once we take this monumental step, once we make this Knowledge the basis for our Education and for the decisions we make for the future of Humankind, we will stop devastating our world and initiate instead a renaissance of Introspection and Discovery.

A magnificent, ingenious, mysterious and intriguing Universal Order that throughout eons of Evolution has created a mind capable of self-reflection and self-determination, a mind able to envision Change and Transform itself, is open for inquiry.
