77 – Progenitors of Conscious Self-Awareness …

There are mysteries in our Universe our minds may never be able to comprehend, but this does not stop us from trying.

Einstein, Galileo, Darwin, and many others tried, and they unraveled some.

Amidst the destruction, decay, cruelty, and death we constantly witness in our world, there is the unresolved mystery of the creative and self-organizing tendency towards complexity, cohesion, and order in Nature. This mysterious and self-determined tendency is evident, especially to us today with the advances in technology, in the symmetry and intricacy of most naturally evolving systems; in the astonishing cohesion and self-generative organization of our own bodies; in the relentless self-stabilization of the earth-system; in the sustained synchronization of planetary systems; in the preeminence of spiral and globular shapes in the galaxies of our Universe; in the austere and tidy rigor of the Periodic Table of the chemical elements, in the encoding of the DNA molecule with the blueprint of an entire human being.

It is a mystery to us how we happen to come into existence out of two miniscule cells, which, driven by powerful and mostly unexplored natural forces, start a process so ingenious, so intricate, so visionary, as to end up with a creature loaded with emotions and feelings; a creature so utterly unique in its composition as to hold a mind like no other we know of in Nature, and yet so common as to have the basic organic structure of millions and millions of other human beings; a creature so fragile as to be easily wiped out of existence by its internal and external environments, and yet so strong as to be able to influence the unfolding of its own evolutionary process.

It is a mystery to us how a Universe the size of which we cannot even yet determine, can so thoroughly impart on all and every one of its components the uncompromising mandate to self-organize, bond, self-generate, self-regulate, adapt, self-preserve, transform, while endowing us … all of us … with a relative degree of freedom to manipulate and be manipulated by the environments in which we exist.

It is a mystery to us how, driven by the primordial and inciting instinct to copulate, we create highly specialized cells imprinted with the instructions to bring into existence whole new beings, thus enabling the continuity of the species.

It is a mystery to have within us the physical Universal Force that drives us to reproduce, self-regulate, adapt, transform; the physical Universal Force that allows us to grow increasingly self-conscious of our Destiny as progenitors of self-awareness.

We have the capacity to unravel the mystery of our own mystery.
