THE MECHANICS OF HEALING OUR PAST (This article is for nerds).
Inflation and national debt are just a few metrics that point to our collective failure to heal our past or achieve a sustainable vision for our future. Why can’t we all just get along and have world peace where nothing goes extinct?
A utopian society is a concept that is in direct contradiction with nature's cycles of creation through destruction. Astronomy has documented explosions and collisions being precursors to galactic creations. Galaxies are thought to begin as small clouds of stars and dust swirling through space. As other clouds get close, gravity sends these objects careening into one another and knits them into larger spinning packs. Subsequent collisions can sling material toward a galaxy’s outskirts, creating extensive spiral arms filled with colonies of stars (Story by Matt Davenport Released on May 13, 2014; reference)
And here we are in our finite natures making decisions that pull on the strings of life in a way that somehow weaves together into the narrative of who we are and what we are doing here; flesh-suits animated by consciousness.
I’m not sure how many strategists, psychiatrists, or life-coaches reference the space-time continuum in regards to framing the presenting issues a client seeks treatment for. “Well Bob, your wife is leaving you because of quantum mechanics interplaying with organic chemistry resulting in neuropsychological reactions.” Bob just wants to think he is a good guy and deserves the love and affection of the person he married.
In a society systematically primed to accept convenience as a measure of well-being, we lose out on the nuanced truth that Bob is an idiot and his bull-shit isn’t good or bad, it’s an inevitable manifestation of gravity pulling stardust together to create micro and macro-ecosystems that manifest as consequences.
Also, fuck Bob. He has a low IQ and is fat, lazy, and stupid. His now ex-wife was also fat, lazy, and an insecure megalomaniac. They are a literal waste of space.
And there are mathematical structures that track the mechanics of why things are the way they are. So, we can’t get along because we are not all on the same wavelength. We have to fight for resources. We, like our primordial ancestors, still practice displays of dominance to mark our territory. We just do it with fancy cars, cash, and beautiful women. Some even use “Virtue signaling” to extract energy from unwitting participants.
We are covering complex concepts. So, let's break it down.
Your life is meaningless. There is no measurable past or future because energy cannot be created or destroyed and yet the infinite universe is expanding. And like the wavelengths of light and sound that our brains translate into patterns, the meaning we make of organic matter will shape what we think matters.
Let’s make it even simpler. Chaos gets translated into order by virtue of our anatomy and physiology. Each system in our body has a mechanical cascade to it that keeps it in balance. For instance too much CO2 in our bloodstream will kill us. So, when we look at a human being through the lens of psychology, to effectively see them, we must also see the science behind what they are before we can understand who they are.
You are nothing. Your body is condensed particles and wavelengths moving together in a complex interaction. Therefore, your soul does not live in your body; you live in your soul.
I offer this perspective so you can get perspective about your life. Certain mathematical equations that are distilled into scientific theory can predict the trajectory of your life. It’s not unique that you dress goth, like the symphony, eat vegan food, or day-trade stocks. The Vanessas, Marks, Ellies, and Chads of the world are destined to live out their algorithmic lives.
But, things get interesting when we invite “healing” into the picture. To do so requires meta awareness. This is where things get supernatural. We become aware of our awareness and move into the territory of the Rosenthal Effect: We see what we expect. In psychology, this is called a self-fulfilling prophecy that can set a person down a path of repeated behaviors and reactions to stimuli. But, now invite a sentient being to examine his or her expectations and the resulting self-fulfilling prophecy. What happens?
By virtue of viewing the pattern we can shift the pattern. By doing so “what” we are can shift into “who” we are. So, the mechanics of healing our past is as simple as being able to see the past as a construct, examine it, and in doing so adapt to a new algorithm.
Everything is happening and nothing is happening. It takes a willingness to co-exist with paradoxical equations in order to access healing. And once you are willing, you will need a guide.
I am that guide. Reach out to gain the perspectives you need to heal and thrive.
