compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion

 of  KNOWLEDGE ... KNOWLEDGE + IMAGINATION

 are the source  of  IDEAS ...

  IDEAS can lead to the sharing of a wealth of understanding which
  provides the potentiality of the qualitative enhancement & advancement
  of the EVOLUTIONARY PROCESS.

The future of that process, however, since the outset of HOMO SAPIENS, SAPIENS
has been in the "hands" and MINDs of OUR species. A species which is driven
by the dual concepts of ...

benefit for the individual


and

benefit for the collective.

Concepts which can so easily be diverted to the use of the power of knowledge ...

for GOOD or EVIL
.
KNOWING ignorance is strength.
Ignoring KNOWLEDGE is sickness.

If one is sick of sickness, then one is not sick.
The sage is not sick because he is sick of sickness.
Therefore he is not sick.

                                          Tao Te Ching



The SOURCE of the LIGHT our SUN is ALWAYS there but the daily cycle of
our existence only serves to interfere with our understanding that IT IS SO -
because of our reluctance to disconnect the mechanism of interpretation.


The SOURCE of the LIGHT - IS - WITHIN


When ONE considers that ...

"Wikipedia's sucess is a product of the way it taps into people's interests and the human desire to share information - and that when it comes to WEB 2.0, IT IS vital to create content which people care enough about to interact with " ...

against a background of  The Other Information Revolution ...

THE beginning of the end of the BEGINNING must start with knowledge itself,
then the individual referencing of same, then the collective referencing of same
and finally an understanding - which mirrors Jimmy Wales belief - that ...

KNOWLEDGE should be free ! ...

such that Global, Collective, Associative, KNOWLEDGE becomes ...
THE SOURCE of the WISDOM of KNOWLEDGE ...

& as Ian Gardner has so succinctly proposed in THE MILK IS WHITE -
.
.
WISDOM is like an ocean.  The ocean is fed by streams and rivers from the land, by springs
from beneath and by rain from above ....
and IT IS the powerhouse of the EARTH.

Sorry Sir Bill but natural hierarchies operate of their own accord and they don't tell you they are superior - it's self evident (from all
quadrants). If a better idea shows up better go with it - EVOLVE - as
it's only a matter of time before it takes over because it's better.
If you squelch it, it later arises again in another form - that's
Natural Law.

BTW Second Tier doesn't go around telling First
Tier it's Second Tier. It's simply is and acts accordingly - that's a
natural hierarchy and it's the difference between practice and theory.
There's a lot of spouting theory verses real practice. (oops, a bit of
a judgmental tangent there…) Back to point…

KNOWLEDGE IS FREE
whether we recognize it or not. A little civil disobedience does a lot
of good for humanity. The Elite have always been nervous of being
trampled by the bewildered herd and, perhaps, in the past rightfully so
- perhaps. However, the herd is developing and evolving now at greater
speeds and comprehension that Plato and Lippmann probably never envisioned but Pierre de Chardin had more than an inkling of it.

Let's hope through the herd's (our) development that it (we) recognizes
the natural hierarchy to guide it (us). It's the recognition of a
better idea regardless of the resistance to it. The Revolution will
not be televised but it's being Digitized.

WOW. I had to much coffee this morning… Am I making sense? Better go breathe.

Great post Michael.

Making total sense - particularly when one considers the parallels between Sri Aurobindo & Pierre Teilhard de Chardin - and the need to consider the issue of an appropriate transcend & include vehicle for continuing the journey.

Two questions-

Information is indeed Light if it is reSourced of TRUTH of ISness. If it is resourced from the essential lie of separation, then such informing
would be 'not of Light'?

Also,
“WISDOM is like an ocean. The ocean is fed by streams and rivers from the land…”

Yes, WISDOM is like an ocean, but is not the ocean the source feeding the streams and rivers to the land, etc. ?

All to Love, Sharon

And the wisdom lies within the darkness of the conduit of knowledge. For the darkness is in fact only an illusion from the light. Love is the
power that that drives the machines of the universe.

ONLY when the accumulation of knowledge enables our understanding and insights of fundamental principles gained through experience are we able to wisely take decisions and make the choices that shape our individual
and collective future.

WE STAND
at the threshold of a revolutionary and empowering new vision of the world. The discoveries of leading-edge science and the insights of spirituality are converging to reveal that the Cosmos and ALL that we term reality is wholly integrated, and that at its most fundamental level, IT IS a field of information.

IN-formation IS the fundamental nature of reality.


Information in the physically effective form IS “in-formation” - IT IS the Akashic Alpha-field. The cosmic template from which the
manifest world derives its dynamics and form, through a process of harmonic interpretation and holographic representation.

This is the elemental cosmic mind from which everything emanates, IS manifested, and to which all ultimately returns. Research is also demonstrating what the mystics of all traditions have discerned: that we have the innate ability to envision, understand, and experience the CosMos at levels far beyond the limitations of our human persona.”

IN summary, the idea is to try to give ALL of the information [IN formation] to help others to judge the value of your contribution; NOT just the information that leads to judgment in one particular direction or another.

It's a kind of scientific integrity, a principle of scientific thought that corresponds to a kind of utter honesty–a kind of leaning over backwards.

WHY WE FIGHT ?

 

and the Scarred Lands and Wounded Lives which result !

"Evolution is a light which illuminates all facts, a curve that all lines must follow." -

                                                     Pierre Teilhard de Chardin - The Phenomenon of Man

Over the course of the past half century since its publication, this prophetic statement has turned out to be true, as evolution has become a defining framework in which we are beginning to understand virtually everything - from biology and technology to the interior dimensions of reality like our psychology, cultural world-views, and even spirituality.

Comment by Michael Grove on May 29, 2013 at 15:05

At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the notion that the evolutionary process is ultimately driven by a spiritual impulse is continuing to gain traction, with a growing number of progressive philosophers, scientists, and mystics exploring its implications.

To many, it is simply a compelling philosophy, uniting the revelations of science and spirituality in a way that no other theory can. But others, like Aurobindo before them, are beginning to reach beyond a theoretical discussion to wonder: What might human life and culture look like if we fully took to heart the reality of this view?

Freed from the mythic dogmatisms of premodern religion, transcending the materialistic biases of modern scientific thought, and liberated from the narcissistic self-absorptions of postmodernity, what kind of new world could human beings aligned with the trajectory of a spiritually evolving cosmos actually create?

Withholding or denying information results in intellectual vandalism.


Facing what you have been denying leads to better thinking.

ANY linear dimension can be symbolised as any other linear dimension, while none of them

will actually BE that dimension. It is all just information that is symbolised. This brings us to the

main point of understanding dimensions, that they are all but symbolic representations of

information. Once you understand this, you can realise that all experience is just a symbolised

representation of information, that the information is the true reality and the method of

symbolisation is a choice. Our experience is our choice of the representation of information.

Every quality we experience that has variation is a dimension, so while we may have the experience

of a reality of 3 spacial dimensions, there are far more dimensions than that in our experience.

In the dream, I went into some depth about 2 and 3 dimensional qualities, such as colour and

how every part of our experience, yes even emotions, can be seen as the symbolic projection

of dimensional information, which could also be represented formulaically, each parameter

representing a dimension, but I will cut to the chase here.

Neither science nor religion has satisfactorily explained where "this lot" came from, for

whatever answer they give, there is always the question, "and where did that come from?".

Even philosophy cannot explain this unless first it shows that everything is information.

Once this is recognised, we only have to ask where the information came from and the answer

to that is it all comes from nothing. There is no need to ask where nothing came from, yet it

contains all the logic needed to propagate all possible information. The information we

symbolise as experience is but a tiny fragment of the whole which contains all possibilities.

HIDDEN VARIABLES - The [UN]knowns beyond space-time which create everything we perceive

within space-time; the INFORMATION that organises energy. A concept from the physics of

Dr. David Bohm • IMPLICATE ORDER - The realm of the Hidden Variables, in Dr. Bohm's

quantum physics.
