According to a paper that appeared in October 2008 in 100 billion years, everything we can see except local galaxies will have been pushed so far away by the universe’s expansion that all other sources of light will have been redshifted beyond our ability to detect them. All matter other than that in our galaxy will be invisible. In other words the universe will destroy all evidence of its origin. The authors suggest that there's another layer of complexity - the anthropic principle. They recognize that there is an anthropic principle because we came along at just the right time. Too much earlier, and we wouldn't be able to detect that the universe is in a new inflationary era, which tells us that it's dominated by dark energy. Too much later, and we wouldn't know there's a universe at all.
So what of man ? Driven by that unrelenting desire to know his origin - a journey that for many only seems possible on an conscious - intellectual level. The hordes of people that worship the accomplishments of modern man ie his industrial and scientific advancements and intellect above everything else - but at what cost?? And we will pay a price for this linear form of thinking . The Source of Life evolves innumerable forms of organic life, each in precise balance with the others...human beings do not own or control these natural treasures...Who is man to alter the original creation at the risk of potentially threatening the structure and balance of everything else in this amazing and wonderful world / universe. How arrogant for man to presume he can !! I then followed that linear thought reluctantly into the future - which ended in a vision of mankind hacking away at the trunk in a desperate attempt to remove themselves from the source - the very source that nurtures them - the result of which will mean imminent death. Which led me to a very important question - Why ?
If we view our mind more like a tree - ( The Conscious Mind ) ( Light ) ( Intellect ) - a perfect compliment to our physical realm - which will primarily consist of the main trunk - branches and leaves - it is that part of us that is always striving and reaching for the light -( the light being our ultimate goal - our final destination ) - that ultimate purpose for which something is created or intended. Then on another level hidden deep below the surface lies our subconscious - ( the roots - the hidden elements of our thoughts ) - buried deep within the EARTH ( within the primordial depths of darkness - we find the essence - spiritual/universal truth ) This is the metaphysical world - forms not yet manifest - We all know there is a fine line between genius and insanity - and there is no doubt that the journey through our subconscious realms is not only frightening but very dangerous - but it is in the realms of our subconscious “ All the Gods of old were born “ !!! Where all the myths and legends stem from and where all REAL knowledge is drawn.
Definition of Subconscious
The term subconscious is defined as existing or operating in the mind beneath or beyond conscious awareness. The word was coined by the psychologist Pierre Janet, who credited it with a hidden level of awareness and automatism.
Our Ancestors were border dwellers - they lived between two dimensions of existence - between their conscious and subconscious mind. They believed everything was intricately interwoven and connected - as a consequence they could make distinctions between the microcosm and macrocosm. Many indigenous groups adhered to a mythic dimension rather than a practical knowledge of hunting which demonstrated their faith in the sacred relationship of the cycles and rhythms of nature, in accordance with the story of the earth's metaphysical creation. For them, the earth is the centre of intelligence of creation; a symbol and memory of the primordial ; a receptacle of all seeds cosmic, metaphysical, and biological; the nurturer of all life, both visible and invisible.
“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly;
what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
-Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Can we draw parallels between the origin of our Universe ( which according to science evolved from a primeval atom ) to that of our subconscious which is primordial in nature? Our minds like the Universe are amazing - science once believed gravity would slow the rate of expansion of the universe but received a rude awakening when they found the universe is not only expanding but accelerating - much like our conscious mind but I do believe there is one fundamental difference the universes natural expansion is aligned with the essence - mans expansion is not.
In my opinion the only way forward for mankind is to “Walk in the footsteps of our Ancestors” bridging the gap between both dimensions of existence - we simply cannot move forward in a positive manner unless the two are aligned. Intellect and thought are only a small part of knowledge. There is another aspect which stems from our inner self . Some people are under the illusion one has to be “ religious “ or exceedingly pious in order to connect with that essence but I believe this is not the case. The world needs to be guided by people who are wise - people who are more that just surface dwellers - we need people that seek both knowledge and wisdom, that actually go one step further and analyse all the relevant consequences of their actions - people who see life both within and without. It is such souls who will produce beauty; it is such souls who will harmonize the world, who will bring about the positive conditions for change the world needs today.
