“Man has such a predilection for systems and abstract deductions, that he is ready to distort the truth intentionally, he is ready to deny the evidence of the senses only to justify the logic.- Fyodor Dostoyevsky
The current state of decline that the world and planet are in is a consequence of a “fragmented-self world view”, (the fragmented human consciousness that is pervasive ). When we examine and express what has occurred as a result of human development and innovation, from this way of thinking one might say that “human creation, inventiveness and an in-depth understanding is of a degree of magnificence, unseen and unparalleled prior to human existence”.
From a more holistic way of thinking we might say that ” humans have been brilliant at exploring pieces of the puzzle that they perceive to be separate, but blind and ignorant, to a comprehensive and open way of seeing and understanding and the global consequences of fragmented way of being. It has been at the heart of all of our disastrous, destructive and abusive developments and actions, the result of incomplete undertakings that have been derived from that thinking”. Even the attachment to our perceived sense of self, both collectively and individually comes with detrimental implications. There is much that we are missing from this conditioning. There are more possibilities available to us. – Gord
In his book, Awakening, A Paradigm Shift of the Heart, Rodney Smith writes that ” We have formed a certain world from our abstract ideas about each object, even though abstract and certainty are contradictory terms. What science is now demonstrating is that the fixed way we perceive the world is misinformed. Science is saying the world is much more of an enigma than our eyes recognize and is much more alive and interactive than the frozen way we perceive it.”
