which Fritjof Capra described as ... the exploration of the subatomic world in the twentieth century which ... has revealed the intrinsically dynamic nature of matter ... and has shown that the constituents of atoms, the subatomic particles, are dynamic patterns which do not exist as isolated entities, but as integral parts of an inseperable network of interactions ...
which involve a ceaseless flow of energy manifesting itself as the exchange of particles; a dynamic interplay in which particles are created and destroyed without end in a continual variation of energy patterns ...
particle interactions which give rise to stable structures which build up the material world, which again do not remain static, but oscillate in rythmic movements ... indicating that THE WHOLE UNIVERSE is thus engaged in endless motion and activity; in a continual COSMIC DANCE of ENERGY ...
will no doubt come to fuition when the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is switched on this summer at CERN in Switzerland ... and Fritjof Capra's question as to whether QUARK SYMMETRIES could become A NEW KOAN ... will BE answered.
William Leith's "Journey to the centre of the earth article" prepares US ALL for an experiment that could unlock the secrets of the universe ... and in so doing ... ABSOLUTELY CONFIRM ... as a result of the rational & logical thinking of applied scientific experiment ... Fritjof Capra's statement of 1975
"On this journey to the world of the infinitely small, the most important step, from a PHILOSOPHICAL point of view, was the first one: the step into the world of atoms. Probing inside the atom and investigating its structure, science transcended the limits of our sensory imagination. From this point on, it could no longer rely with absolute certainty on logic and common sense. Atomic physics provided the scientists with the first glimpses of the essential nature of things. Like the mystics, physicists were now dealing with a non-sensory experience of reality and, like the mystics, they had to face the paradoxical aspects of this experience. From then on therefore, the models and images of modern physics became akin to those of Eastern philosophy."
It is also likely, in the context of Alan's statement that ... "the SOUL, indeed, IS visible by science, if they knew how and where to look" ... that the deliberation of the results of this LHC scientific experiment, will confirm Alan's zBlog proposal that
"the base of the material world is immaterial consciousness and that we are concentrations of the consciousness of the universe, and therefore concentrations of light, and concentrations of microwave energy."
What better way to establish the conclusion of this post, than to utilise William Leith's own conclusion to his Telegraph Magazine Article ...
We have a quick chat about Tim Berners-Lee. 'Thanks to him, you can look him up on the internet,' Grey grins. Grey is poised to process the data from the pictures that Harnew and Collins and Barney and many others will take, once Lamont and his colleagues have flicked the switch. And it's important data. Physicists absolutely need to find it. This is because, to put it bluntly, they do not understand why things are things. It's absolutely infuriating. The truth is out there, if only they could locate it.
'It'll be a relief for them to find [the boson],' Peter Higgs said recently. 'If I'm wrong, I'll be rather sad.'
'The LHC is guaranteed a result,' James Gillies says. 'Either we find the Higgs boson, or we find something else that does the same job...
We know the Standard Model is not the whole story, but we also know it isn't wrong
... IT works too well. IT IS simply incomplete.'
Fritjof Capra wrote in his 25th Anniversary Edition Epilogue ....
I believe that the world view implied by modern physics is inconsistent with our present society, which does NOT reflect the HARMONIOUS INTERRELATEDNESS we observe in nature.
The survival of our whole civilisation may depend on whether we can bring about such change. IT WILL DEPEND, ultimately, on our ability to adopt some of the YIN attitudes of EASTERN mysticism; to experience the wholeness of nature and the
"Our rich cosmological and biological heritage is giving birth to a new vision of the spiritual impulse, one that incorporates the evolutionary principles at the heart of living systems. The more we understand about the developmental processes of life, including our own lives, the more we can develop solutions appropriate to the complex, multidimensional human world that we live in.
We can hope that those solutions may be more effective at leading us toward a lasting and comprehensive peace, but that does not mean that peace itself will be the ultimate goal of our efforts. “If people try to put peace ahead of evolution, they won't get either,” says Michael Nagler. “If they put evolution ahead of peace, they'll get both.” - Carter Phipps
