Whatever floats your boat...

Just this morning, I'd been journaling and pondering if Darwin's Theory of Evolution could, perhaps, apply to universes (yes, that's plural, lol). I was thinking in fractals, that what's observable in nature is repeated at both smaller and greater levels, and if it's true then why not think beyond our known universe? Why not consider that ours is one of an infinite number...

Then I needed a TedTalk to watch whilst washing my week's worth of dishes, and serendipitously chose this one:

Totally blew my mind!

I'm a believer in multi-universes (I've decided), and am that much further away from a belief in some omnipotent being that hears us when we pray (I was far enough away to begin with). That's not to say our intentions and the energies we put to them don't hold some unknown power. Just sayin' it ain't a "loving or fearsome god". It's physics we haven't comprehended nor crafted "laws" for...yet.

 

We're so small and alone. There's a comfort in that, much like what I felt after spending a week in the Grand Canyon, via the Colorado River. I emerged feeling beautifully-small and insignificant. It's not hard to accept if it's reconciled with a belief in the bigger picture- that none of us are actually separate from anything or anyone.

There's still who-knows-what on the other side of this reality, but there is no god as in the one we've been duped to believe exists. THAT god is one of subservience for the sake of civility, and it is, without doubt, at the expense of individual authenticity.

It's interesting how I was only just in the last couple of years beginning to not care so much about the answers to life's big questions, and now this... It feels so right. I would guess that, ironically, it feels as good and as right as a belief in Jesus, the "savior".

I'm even more certain that fear of alone-ness and insignificance is what motivates people more than they know when it comes to their belief systems and their relationships (settling for fear of loneliness or abandonment).

We are, all of us, even in the absence of a god, still connected, which is why I'm throwing this out there into the tiny e-niverse. Tree once referred to it as an act of love, so consider it a love note from me to you, whoever you are.

Don't get me started on religion and it's ability to really f@*k things up! It's an argument I have daily with friends and family.

Don't get me started on science and it's ability to really f@*k things up! :-P

@Chig - "I am you, and you are me" -weren't we supposed to do that song?...so since we are all one, you look really nice in my little black dress.

@Syd - Welcome  --i won't say atheist, or agnostic, or free thinker, it's becoming almost as complicated as trying to explain  the power of nature.  Labels only complicate things, and the word god does nothing for humankind but cause trouble; it did even for Darwin struggling for a term to describe his reverence for nature. Welcome anyway, If you're letting go. Who knows...you may see JC in your pancake and it will all fall down.

Science is flawed, Humans are flawed...its a big beautiful fuktup mess and glad to be floating on thru at the same time YOU are..OH WAIT, what do we REALLy know about Time? I may be wrong in my perspective on that too...and you dont even SEE the same things I see thru my two eyes...who knows what you see when you look at me?  We have to just accept we are limited in our perspective, even of each other...I'm tired, this may make no sense. I have to get going... if this is crazy,I'll delete later.

I would post my VH vid here, but don't wanna stir up the masses over there :)

F*ck 'em Lima. They don't own you ; P

String Theory Baby ! There at least one universe in which I don't believe in multi universes. What's holding it all together? a SPIder. Duh.

@ lima- Am I missing something? Does VH pay certain people to only post exclusively there ? 

Curious.

@Lima - you're kidding us right? Wouldn't it be nice if we could all have discussions in the same place? That would be the ultimate good thing, but I guess when I was there for less than a day and got fed up by being told I'm not " allowed" to be creative...there was more to it than just that. Wow. is all I've got, if what you say or do here, creates any reaction at all on another website. That should never happen but who am I to say. I don't like people telling me what I can and can't share on a website.  I don't get it, frankly.

Yes to the "God" thing. Not the way we've been told.  No to the alone thing. Our ego mind as the job of convincing us that we are individuals and everything is separate. Truth is everything is 1 mind. That is god. Impersonal, eternal, omnipresent.  what is behind the smallest particle? Energy. What is behind that energy? Consciousness....One Universal consciousness.Therefor we are all one. Not just pretty words from long dead philosophers, but now a scientific fact. Hence, we are all one, and we are never alone and always alone simultaneously.

He says "vibration determines everything" To that I reply "OM".

To take it even further, I saw a few documentaries on Black Holes, which some believe are basically an opening in the side of our universe that leads out into the space between universes (the 11th dimension)... perhaps leading to another universe itself.  Like a hallway between universes.  Interesting stuff.

Dan- Please do get started.  ;o)

Paula- Thanks for the read.

ThatGirl- It's all fascinating, but my skepticism stands- just a little further to the not-god side because infinitesimal universes seems more plausible.  :o)

Blanchie- Spider, and Twinkie Jesus.

Lima- Post away!  

Ray- Linkie no workie.  :o)  And regarding your view of things- I hear ya.  Maybe I'm stuck on the "one consciousness" thing because it suggests, to me at least, an awareness of some kind.  On the one hand, that doesn't compute, but then I look around and I think, how could there be no cosmic mind if it created this reality...?  Ugh- beyond me for the moment.

MOTC- Oh, I was wondering where that 11th dimension was.  Good to know.  ;o)
