Nature’s Way

Nature’s Way

Nature has a way of thinking which is very different from the type of thinking that is predominant in our world. First of all, Nature does not think using the concepts of time and space. These are created by the human mind. We say things like, “It was,” and “You were;” but, for Nature, all is.

. . .what was, was always so; what will be is virtually in what is, in such a way that what was “is” virtually what will be and has itself only been the essence of the future( R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz, Nature Word).

If we are to become, we must vanquish our limited, dichotomous way of thinking. It limits us to this material world. We are not limited to this world. We are Universes, like seeds of universes that have been planted. This Metaverse cannot come to fruition until we begin to adopt our true nature. It won’t thrive until we act.

One such trait to be rejected as illusion is antinomies. Heraclitus attempted to transcend this primitive way of thinking in his philosophy, what little remains of it. Hegel attempted to incorporate the Heraclitean mode of thought into his logic. Of Heraclitus, he said,

Heraclitus
is the one who first declared the nature of the infinite and first
grasped nature as in itself infinite, that is, its essence as process.
The origin of philosophy is to be dated from Heraclitus. His is the
persistent Idea that is the same in all philosophers up to the present
day, as it was the Idea of Plato and Aristotle ( Hegel, G. W. F.. “Vorlesungen über die Geschichte der Philosophie”. pp. 336–337)”

If nothing else, use antinomic thinking as a springboard to leap beyond the opposites. The way up and the way down are the same.

Certainly, one must admit the practical usefulness of rationalistic, scientific ways of thinking. That’s fine, but do you want to be an observer of Nature, or be a participant, as in the participation mystique? Outside time and space, rationalistic science is useless, since there are no measurements to be made. Our destiny, however, is to transcend our limited ways of thought and become indistinguishable from the many worlds that we will enjoy throughout eternity.

Can it really be said that before the day of our pretentious science,
humanity was composed solely of imbeciles and the superstitious (R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz)?

Science has served us well the past few hundred years, but, as the Apostle Paul said, “When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I
thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things (I Corinthians 13:11). Let us become what we are destined to become.

  1. this ties in very nicely to the book I'm currently reading: “The Ever-Present Origin” by Jean Gebser.
    The future is aperspectival and participatory. 🙂
