IMAGINING A LIFE-CENTERED WORLDVIEW
AT THE CORE OF NATURE IS LIFE
This differs from that currently dominant view that the atomic model, or other mechanical, death-laden, math-defined principles give us access to the core of nature – or what allowed us to create the Industrial Revolution. If life is at the core of nature, what evidences that life? It is not just plain motion or jumping around. Machine can do that easily. Rather life exhibits consciousness, and whether in motion or not.
AT THE CORE OF LIFE IS CONSCIOUSNESS
Thus living things partake or bring out this consciousness from the depths or bosom of nature and in a spectrum of life forms that include dinosaurs and microbes, trees and single-cell plants.
AT THE CORE OF CONSCIOUSNESS IS THE RELATIONSHIP OF CONNECTION ITSELF IN NATURE
The resulting life-centered vision of nature then becomes an exact reverse mirror image of the presently dominant mathematical/mechanical view. This is because math symbols expertly abstract universal separation of elements of consciousness – going in the opposite direction from the essence of life. They point to the surface/separate appearance. This is why we can “best” use those symbols to build atomic bombs. Also pointing to mechanicality or to machines made of separate parts, we terribly eschew or biased rather than objectify our view of nature. We give too much weight to the relationships between nuts and bolts rather than a deeper order of unity. Focusing on this underlying and integral connectedness, we also arrive at completely different set of laws for nature, and the nature of ourselves, than those of math-bound, mechanical physics and chemistry.
This perspective, if adopted, literally “re-volutionizes” or reverses our root metaphysical understanding of the cosmos, of nature and planet earth, and of ourselves – for the overall course, evolution and healing of our lives.
