98 – Fracturing The Indivisible …

The Divisiveness incited by organized religions (my religion is the ‘true’ religion), and the Reductionistic focus of dominant scientific processes (we can understand Life, our Universe, everything, by separating primary elements!), have managed to influence our very young and impressionable minds to fracture the indivisibility of Nature, allowing us to believe that we are not a part of Nature, that we are not made out of Nature, thus perpetuating the myth that we are a ‘special creation’.

We are ‘special’, but only in the sense that we have had the advantage to evolve amid relatively stable yet demanding environments, which have not only encouraged our development but have challenged us to innovate and, ultimately, develop into the most consciously self-reflective organism we know of in Nature.

But fundamentally, we are specks of life in the unfolding of Nature; fiery, ingenious, yet frail and ephemeral organisms completely dependent on the support of propitious environments to satisfy our primal needs.

And by fracturing Nature into opposing and seemingly incompatible realms (micro-cosmos versus macro-cosmos, mind versus matter, Nature versus us), we have come to accept as rational the absurd idea that we can exist independent from Nature, and have grown incapable to see the self-evident fact that, because we are made out of Nature, we cannot exist without it.

Our fracturing the indivisible is akin to removing a neuron to try to understand the brain, or isolating the most elementary particles to try to understand the Universe.

Nature is indivisible and will not reveal its essence unless we see ourselves as one of its inseparable creations.
