84 – The New Paradigm (Part II): The Undeniable Link …

There is no doubt in my mind that in our evolutionary development, human beings will eventually come to perceive our intimate connection with our Universe – the undeniable link – a connection that is akin to the one we share with every cell in our bodies. As unlikely as the perception of this connection appears to be under our current understanding of Reality, it is inevitable. The only thing that can stop us from getting there eventually, is our demise.

There is, as far as we know, no other species in Nature with a higher level of Self-reflection than ours, but currently, this capacity is mostly overpowered by our instincts.

The hope is that, pressed by the devastating effects of a Paradigm in which the irrational concepts that self-indulgent consumption and unlimited growth in a limited environment are an entitlement, a higher level of Self-reflection becomes the dominant faculty in us and will lead us to move forward in search of a new worldview; a worldview based on the rational premises that the process we call Life, although we cannot yet comprehend the Primordial Source from which it emerged, is a self-creating Force launched into motion eons before what we call the “Big Bang” and controlled by rigorous yet open laws – like the few listed below – that link us all by animating and governing everything in Nature:

* The Force of Life must consume in order to generate.

* The Force of Life must be open to experimentation and innovation.

* The Force of Life must be both attracting and repelling.

* The Force of Life must be both unbending and supple in its adaptation to changing environments.

* The Force of Life must transcend physical and space/time boundaries.

* The Force of Life must rise above its own creations to transform itself in its progression toward complexity.

This is the Force that drives two cells to create a Human being, and a seed to build a giant sequoia tree, and a planet like ours to explode into myriad manifestations of Life. This is the Force that moves us forward, inciting us to bond, self-organize, self-generate, transform. This is the Force that is awakening in us the awareness of our profound link to the Source from which we emerge and within which we are immersed.

Why is it that Science, already having beautiful Theories that prove this undeniable link (Relativity, Bell’s Theorem, Autopoiesis, Dissipative Structures, Evolution, etc.) seems so unable to see the connection?
