compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion
AS I travelled into London today – which was bustling with the Chinese New Year
among "many other things" - after leaving office this summer – GOD forbid that he would
become an advisor to Hillary Clinton if she were to become the first female president – I was
reminded of the CRISIS in SCIENCE which Lee Smolin has referred to – in his yet to be published
book – the trouble with physics - & most exemplified by his statement that – to continue the
progress of science, we have to again confront deep questions about space and time ...
solutions to long-standing foundational problems.
It also struck me as somewhat ironic – in the context of the CRISIS in POLITICS - that one of Britain’s largest yet least visible communities was enjoying a rare moment in the limelight of the CITY - that has returned to the GREED of Gordon Gekko – seemingly uninterested in any need for an involvement in the politics of the UK – when China talks of its undoubted progress in many areas of concern - whilst daily perpetrating aggression against the monks of Tibet unless they renounce the Dalai Lama – and it is becoming more unlikely that it will meet its target to improve its energy efficiency by 2010 whilst continuing to boost its defensive military arsenal funded by its balance of trade surplus with the USA.
YES - the status quo is that ALL nations are at present soverign states - but as Martin has so succinctly stated elsewhere - we are not American, European, Russian or Chinese - but ALL exactly the same - and as such I would venture to suggest that we are neither Atheist, Buddist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim either - because of our global CRISIS in RELIGION - but citizens of the earth FIRST and FORMOST.
As Ken Wilber has, so succinctly stated, in the context of ALL the INDIVIDUALS of ALL the PEOPLES of ALL the NATIONS of humanity: "It is true that anything I can see is not the real Seer, because everything I see IS the Seer. As I go within to find my real self, I find only the world, because the real self within is actually the real world without. The subject and the object, the inside and the outside are and always have been one. There is no primary boundary. The world is my body, and what I am looking out of is what I am looking at. The real self resides neither within nor without because subject and object are actually not-two."
I have spoken elsewhere of the Dalai Lama’s awakening to the power of science (knowledge) and his humility in establishing a long term commitment - to bringing the influence of eastern RELIGION to bear on the rational thinking processes of the west - and its reliance on the theory of SCIENCE and his willingness to transcend the influences of POLITICS in order to encourage others to invent new solutions for the entirety of the problems with which HOMO SAPIENS is today faced.
At this TIME in the process of cosmic evolution - HOMO SAPIENS desperately needs a NEW collective - of new kinds of people - who can invent new solutions to long-standing foundational problems – as has today been exemplified - by the explosion of interest in SAMME’s Presidential Candidates zPod - and lest we forget don't lets kill the messenger - whoever that might be !
YET again - this Chinese New Year
Hail to Kuan Yin
Hail to SAMME
