61 – Dogma closes Doors to the Human Mind …

There are incontestable and self-evident Universal Facts that remain difficult for us to accept and incorporate into our perception of Reality … redolent as they are with commonality … because they obliterate our wish to feel Special, to be the ‘darlings’ of Creation. They reassert instead the instinctive animal urges we all share through our primitive genetic makeup:

  • – It is incontestable that we exist in an organism whose evolution has been ongoing for millions of years, and whose integration is bound to ultimately disintegrate sometime in the future; it is incontestable that we eat other living organisms to give ours the energy to support our development; it is incontestable that we exist only because of the survival success of the species we call Humanity; it is incontestable that our Body, as unique as it may feel to each one of us, is structured like billions … billions … of other human bodies: two legs, two arms, a sexual organ, and a head containing a brain.

And there are incontestable yet non-evident Universal Facts that we are unable to incorporate as part of our Reality because they belong to alien dimensions too small or too big, or too slow or too fast for our organic senses to perceive; these Universal Facts feel alien to us because they happen in ‘worlds’ we know about only through scientific instruments or theories:

  • – It is incontestable that the human body is a congregation of myriad specialized components organized into a self-replicating and cohesive system; it is incontestable that there are Universal Forces keeping planets in relatively steady orbits around stars, stars around galactic centers, and electrons around a nucleus; it is incontestable that an instinctive urge for Pleasure is the inciting drive behind the perpetuation of Life; it is incontestable that the ephemeral phenomenon we call the Mind, whether individual or Universal, is the  communal and self-promoting expression that, instinctively yet often times self-determinedly, drives the experience of Life.

Whether these Facts are self-evident or not, whether we accept them or not, whether we are able to sense them or not, they are INCONTESTABLE. They are a part of our Reality, of the Universe in which we exist, of a Beautiful Order we are made afraid to explore because if we do, it will do away with the fallacies of dogmatic ideologies.

There is no denying the Fact that there is Someone or Something behind the implied Order of Nature; Someone or Something beyond comprehension, yet open – especially during the wonder years of childhood when the Mind is new to the world – to our exploration without the imposition of others telling us to believe what they want that Someone or Something to be. This is how the Mind is enslaved. This is how we become Dogmatic. This is how we create the Divisions that demolish our Empathy. This is where Hate comes from.

Organized religion, as any form of organization, is beneficial in the sense that it can bring people together to do good things, but it turns cruel and destructive when it aims to control the Mind.

There is an incontestable and magnificent Order within us that we seem afraid to explore. The patriarchal clans that control organized religion have shut down the doors of Wonder to the most beautiful spectacle the Mind can witness and experience: the tenacious and sensuous organism from which it emanates. And thus we don’t know:

  • – How, out of a universal urge to perpetuate Life, two tiny cells come together to begin the planning, manufacturing, and self-organizing of one of the most complex organisms we know of … our own,
  • – How, even as we grow, change, and age, our Body instinctively knows how to wisely balance our intake and release of energy sources, so we can continue fueling the process of our existence,
  • – How, although we are utterly unique – not another one like me in the entire Universe – our Body is structured for Survival and Reproduction like billions of other bodies.

These things we do following the primal commands of a strict, yet supple Universal Order bent on Self-reflection, Self-organization, and the crafting of Complexity. Yet we don’t know very much about it; nor how it can grip us in awe, abandon us in pleasure, awaken us in thought; nor how it has come to create out of organic stuff a Mind grown aware of itself, nor how it makes us conduits for the succession and transformation of Life, nor how it gives us the imagination to envision the Future.

The Key to an intellectual Revolution to shift away from our destructive Paradigm, is to free the Mind from Dogma to understand the Universal Order within us.
