92 – Without a Vision we don’t know where we are going …

We are participants in an extraordinarily beautiful and creative Universal Order. But although science has had hints of its magnificence for decades, it is veiled from us.

Einstein saw its equilibrium.

Bell, its cohesion.

Darwin, its adaptability.

Bohr, its complementary properties.

Prigogine, its self-driven yet vulnerable progression towards complexity.

Maturana and Valera, its self-creation and self-perpetuation.

Mandelbrot, its capacity to self-organize upon a recurring model.

Heisenberg and Pascal, its unfolding amid uncertainty and myriad probabilities.

Quantum Field Theory, its possession of relative degrees of freedom to transform and be transformed.

The Order implicated in these theories, and how it determines our lives while endowing us with a degree of freedom to transform ourselves and our environment, is unknown to us.

Unable to let go of the aggressive behaviors we needed eons ago to survive in our primitive development, we are unable to envision not only what we want to be as a species, but the beautiful and creative Order unfolding within us and all around us.

And thus, as highly evolved as we are or claim to be, we are lost with no other vision than the destruction created by our unsustainable consumption and unlimited growth in a limited environment – consume and grow without reflection, is our Credo.

Without a Vision we are lost; we don’t know where we come from nor where we are going.
