The Ancient Power Within
A brain center, flow of energy, waste disposal. When they get big enough, they split off and form two separate colonies.
Almost like a cell dividing and dividing until a whole new organism is formed.
All our DNA is the same. Meaning a DNA in one area will turn into an eye, while the same DNA in another area will turn into a finger.
The DNA somehow knows what to become, based on a myriad of environmental factors.
Many believe that human life on Earth is like one big organism. Certainly looked at on a meta level, it sure can look like one.
Many believe the “super conscious” is the collective unconscious of all “individual” entities on Earth past, present and future.
One really mind bender is if you consider the very first organism that crawled out of the sludge many, many eons ago.
It replicated, again and again and again, until we have the massive diversity of life that exists today.
All life seems to be imprinted with the same “prime directive,” which is to make more copies of itself.
In order to do that, it has to interact with its environment, interact with other like elements, and just keep on building.
Richard Dawkins wrote an interesting book called “The Extended Phenotype.” A genotype is the biological outcome of our genes. Brown eyes, black hair, etc. A phenotype is a non-biological outcome of our genes. Like a snail’s shell or a beaver’s dam.
He postulated that everything we have on Earth can be thought of as the “human phenotype.” All of our artwork, medicine, music, jars of peanut butter and sofas.
Which means making things is part of our DNA.
But not just making them, but making whatever we can, and then trading them for what we want.
The energy that connects all this, of course, is money.
Without money, that free flowing river of creative inventions simply wouldn’t exist.
It’s that metaphysical energy that connects people of different languages, different cultures, and different beliefs.
As soon as ancient cultures came in contact with each other, they started trading what they had, for what they wanted.
Luckily, it’s easier than every to participate. There’s an explosion in human need, as well as an explosion of ways to satisfy those needs.
All you’ve got to do is get in the game, and start playing.
