Science will surely remain one-eyed and lacking in depth-perception until it acknowledges the equal validity of subjective, sensory and spiritual experience. And it will continue to record the letter of mere mechanics, and miss the true spirit that brings it all to life, until it comes to recognize the universal urge to unite ~ even within the molecule itself ~ as being the universal attractive force of love:
There is a growing consciousness revolution going on in science ~ a genuine paradigm shift. While mainstream science remains generally materialist and seeing through one eye ~ a growing number of scientists are supporting and developing a paradigm based on the primacy of consciousness. I'm one of them but I'm concentrating on spiritual psychology and the realm of soul consciousness ~ which permeates the unseen sub-atomic world as well as the world of our physical sensory experience.
No one describes this growing scientific impasse more tellingly than Lincoln Barnett, author of The Universe and Dr. Einstein:
"A theoretical concept is emptied of content to the degree that it is divorced from sensory experience ~ for the only world man can truly know is the world created for him by his senses. Beyond that point he stares into the void ."
In other words, our consciousness determines what we see. Dr John Hagelin, one of the world's leading pioneers of theoretical physics also believes we are really talking about worlds of consciousness ~ " If you scratch below the surface and get to the molecular atomic and sub-atomic levels, you find that these worlds are not material worlds. They are worlds of intelligence and ultimately worlds of consciousness."
Charles Darwin's only error was substituting matter for spirit as the motivating force of nature ~ and that spirit is the universal urge to unite as revealed in Teilhard De Chardin's law of Complexity-Consciousness
It is Teilhard de Chardin who clearly reveals this urge to unite as a fundamental law of nature and a state of consciousness.
Teilhard used the term ' within ' to denote the psychic face or consciousness of matter ~ since the beginning of time ~ which reveals itself in its innate urge to unite.
Teilhard defines this innate urge to unite as an energy force in his famous Law Of Complexity - Consciousness . The law states two principles:
1. Throughout all time there has been an evolutionary tendency for all matter to unite and become increasingly complex in nature.
2. With each increase in material complexity, there is a related rise in the consciousness of matter and an even greater urge to unite.
Teilhard divided this fundamental energy into two distinct components ~ a Tangential energy which linked the element with all others of the same order and a Radial energy which represented the innate urge toward union and greater complexity as well as a leap in consciousness.
It is this Radial energy in matter, this deep urge towards union and completion, which eventually manifests itself as LOVE.
As such, Teilhard's Radial energy is one in the same with what I call a state of Soul Consciousness and The Unified Field. A state of love and soul consciousness that exists not only beyond time and space but also deepest within ourselves and ~ and whose principle property is the universal urge to unite.
If we compare this with Darwin's evolutionary theory, Darwin's only error was to substitute matter for spirit as the motivating force of the Universe.
For it becomes increasingly clear, in light of this innate urge to unite, that man is the product of an evolution of love. From the pre-atomic stage in the depths of the primordial sea to his present ' hominized ' state ~ man is the product of a seemingly endless evolution within a loving plan of plurality, union and a resultant energy transformation into something more complex, more conscious and more loving.
Nowhere is this more evident than in our own creation as human beings. In the August 1990 issue of Life Magazine, Linnart Nilsson created a sensation with the first photographs of how life begins.
From conception through life's earliest hours and days, these pictures are dramatic proof of our innate urge to unite and of Teilhard's Law of Complexity-Consciousness.
Nilsson clearly shows in his incredible photographs, a remarkable sequence of events; Shortly after the head of the sperm has entered the ovum, we see two small bubbles filled with chromosomes floating around ~ one from the man and one from the woman.
Drawn inexorably toward each other ~ these nuclei begin to unite . The result of this union is a highly complex nucleus that contains the entire blueprint for a human being.
About 12 hours later, the cell splits into two and then splits again and again until it becomes more than 100 cells ( a Blastocyst ) and even more complex and conscious.
Then it begins its journey through the fallopian tube towards the uterus where it will unite or attach itself to the uterine wall and signal the woman ( from a place of greater complexity and consciousness ) that she is pregnant.
By the third trimester, we have reached such a degree of complexity-consciousness that we have entered a joyful and conscious state of soul consciousness and are ready to be born.
Our task on this planet is to surrender to this same universal urge to unite and play our part in the great coming together of mankind ~ and it begins with each one of us surrendering to love, social cooperation and altruism versus hatred, separation and greed.
Richard Leakey wrote in " The beginnings of mankind " that there was very little evidence of violence and aggression in early mankind with considerable evidence of social cooperation and altruism as the deciding factors in evolution.
Scientific American said virtually the same thing in its issue The Arithmetic's of Mutual Help ( June 1995 ) where it shared how computer experiments show how cooperation rather than exploitation can dominate in the Darwinian struggle for survival . The article by Martin Nowak, Robert May and Karl Sigmund seems to reinforce Teilhard's Law of Complexity-Consciousness ~
" Throughout the evolutionary history of life, cooperation among smaller units led to the emergence of more complex structures as, for example, the emergence of multicellular creatures from single-celled organisms. In this sense, cooperation becomes as essential for evolution as is competition."
They conclude by saying ~ " In the course of evolution, there appears to have been ample opportunity for cooperation to have assisted everything from humans to molecules. In a sense, cooperation could be older than life itself. "
And what else could be older than life itself than love, the universal urge to unite and a state of soul consciousness ~ the Unified Field . Allen L Roland http://blogs.salon.com/0002255/2009/08/10.html
