Man-and-universe relationship | Inquirer Opinion
Humans and Food: Their Connection to the Universe. At the spiritual level, food is connected to the loving consciousness of the Universe. So are we! Lung and Large Intestine—are out of balance, eating pears can support their relationship. The place of human beings in the universe comes in the final analysis from a relationship with the Wellspring of all life. God did not choose. A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and the foundation for morality is founded on our relationship with the universe; .
We stretch the invisible line between our eyes and the object, and realize not only we ourselves exist, other things in the universe, too, exist. That is, we share the time and space with objects in the universe. By knowing, we connect. We use the human faculty to understand, so that objects reside in our minds as ideas. That is, we incorporate as part of us the objects in the universe.
The Endless Human Connection Beyond The Universe
By identifying, we connect. We acknowledge shared natures we have with objects in the universe. That is, we are the objects in the universe. Being vast and grand, the universe does not intimidate us mortal beings. Instead, it empowers us.
On the one hand, we are promised of knowledge, that we can know things beyond ourselves. And happiness, according to Aristotle, is the ultimate human end.
The Endless Human Connection Beyond The Universe
To Connect, to Connect Deeper The project, however, is not just a reminder. Instead, it encourages, and even urges us to actively make these connections ourselves because these connections do not necessarily come naturally. You could see stars. But when [Stella] looks into the sky, she sees something entirely different than I did at the same age.
The installation of seven tons of sand, although of course not the Milky Way, pushes the urban dwellers who go into the dim room filled with white noise to think of the Milky Way, and identify with the Milky Way. Also, Andrew is inspiring his audience to make deeper connections with the universe. Whereas science gathers facts and data, art arouses human emotions, thus striking directly at the core of human soul.
Between Humans and the Universe: All We Have are the Connections We Make
With science, we can know the chemical component of a human infant and of the inanimate objects in the universe. The project is utterly beautiful. I have often wondered why at the moments when we look up into the sky, when it cannot be clearer that we are small and we are mortal, we rarely feel worthless.
Andrew seems to be providing this poetic answer: The test was with two plants in a room.
A person went into the room and killed one of the plants. The other plant was hooked up to a lie-detector type apparatus and several people were brought, one-by-one, into the room. When the "murderer" was brought in, the plant went "wild" according to the readout on the lie detector monitor. It does not prove that plants have "feelings", but that they have the ability to communicate at a non-physical level and that they can react to physical events and even to human thoughts.
It is also now known that certain trees send out messages to other trees, both through the air, carried by something akin to pheromones, as well as through the root system, that a parasite is invading, and those trees begin to "beef up" their immune systems to counteract the threat. Other studies have shown that plants grow larger and healthier when exposed to classical music vs. Let me take this idea a step further.
Even though it may appear to consist primarily of water, mineral, and vegetable matter with a molten iron core and gradually more solid material from there to the outer crust, surrounded by gaseous atmospheres of lesser and lesser densities, it is really governed by vibrational levels of being similar to that of humans.
I also refer you to Michael Talbot's "The Holographic Universe" in which he summarizes the findings of many scientists in this regard, and the following quote from one of the greatest scientists, Albert Einstein, is one of my favorites: He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.
This delusion is a kind of prison for us restricting us to our personal desires and for affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty".
I have to believe that Einstein was able to see the world and we who are attached to it as an holistic, conscious system that behaves interactively with humans, plant and animal life. Even understanding that, it is difficult to pinpoint where in Earth diseases or lesions will occur, and what form they will take, based solely upon emotional status of humans. It is hard enough just to determine that within an individual human. This, however, is where my vision of earth dynamics begins, and also includes the notion that not only Earth, but the Sun and all of the cosmos is living being.
Speaking of Earth-Sun as living being with connected consciousness, a most interesting series of events occurred around the U.
The election of the President of the United States of America is a big deal, due to the global position the U. Like millions of others, I watched the election returns on television and the regular tabulation of states and electoral votes blue for Gore; red for Bush as the returns came in.
What was most interesting to me was the corresponding solar activity that was occurring as it became clear that the results were too close to call and that this would be a protracted and contested election with the results not known for days and days.
They usually show relatively parallel readings, so this seemed like a strange anomaly. This went on for about five hours, then the readings came back together again see following graphic, 1, "The Gore-Bush Split".
