spread your roots and seeds

a miracle!

There seem to be at least two especially powerful types of energy expression that living things can use:

Via the Roots – direct energy of wildly varying quality emanating from our deepest, strongest connection with the world, as with family. We generally share our most intimate feelings and ideas and physical self only with a partner, or very close relative (parent, child, sibling), in a highly controlled direction. The roots are where the most symbiotic and powerful connections are.

Via the Seeds – indirect energy of only the highest quality emanating from the parts of our self that are most freely and lightly connected with the world, as with friends, community members, and others who happen to be working, studying, and playing in the same areas we are in. We generally share only our best stuff with those we know on a limited level, and we do so in very diverse, uncontrolled, directions.

In other words, our energy expressions can very focused in direction while being fuzzy in quality (via our “roots”), or our energy expressions can be very focused in quality while being fuzzy in direction (via our “seeds”).

Our roots are who we inherently are at heart.

Our seeds are what new things we create using all the resources we have available to us.

Both are needed for healthy evolution.



can you smell it?

In reading some Buckminster Fuller, I learned that one can sort the five primary human senses into three categories, based on the physics of their processes:

1. Touch – most strongly associated in the brain with things from the past

2. Taste, Smell, Hearing – most strongly associated in the brain with things from the present.

3. Sight – most strongly associated in the brain with things from the future.

I imagine there is a little overlap with taste affecting at least some parts of the brain that govern feelings about the past, and with hearing affecting at least some parts of the brain that govern feelings about the future.

If this is true, then when one is interested in changing one’s brain state for any reason, one can consciously refocus one’s attention on the information coming in from the sense associated most strongly with the desired state.

What other implications can you think of that result from this theory?


solid state?

dry ice rocket!

If we take seriously the concept that the universe is fractal for a moment, and we combine that with the idea that atoms are able to organize in four basic states of solids, liquids, gases, and energy, and able to change from one state to another depending on the situation, then we come to the conclusion that the universe itself can get together with other universes to organize in these states as well.

One way I’ve found to think about these states is by the kinds of relationships of the individual components.

In a solid, the elements are all connected to each-other, rigidly, as in a tetrahedron, so that no element is free to move independently of the other elements, and the whole mass generally stays in one place, relative to it’s environment, and when it does move, it moves in a mostly 1D line (straight from point A to point B). Solids don’t tend to combine with other kinds of masses in the environment.

In a liquid, the elements are only connected in a linear way, as in a string of beads, with only one or two connections for each element (depending on whether it is in the middle, with one connection on each side, or on the end, with only one connection on one side). This allows the whole mass to flow, wiggling around the environment in a mostly 2D plane. Liquids sometimes combine with other kinds of masses in the environment, and sometimes don’t.

In a gas, the elements aren’t usually connected, and are freely bumping into one another, interacting occasionally, but mostly not, as in balloons bouncing around a room. This allows the whole mass to move around in all directions and to spread out or contract in, to use the whole of the 3D environment. Gases more readily combine with other kinds of masses in the environment.

In pure energy, though, the elements aren’t even connected to themselves! There is no more inside vs. outside. There is no “whole mass” at all, but is instead a dissolved “element” that has spread out in 4D time, leaving just a wave of probability. Energy combines with mass in the environment not just easily, but rather aggressively so!

My initial guess is that our universe is part of a gas right now. Our galaxy seems to be a part of a gas, definitely, as it is still functioning as a part of the universe (the mass as a whole), and could interact with other galaxies at some point, but is mostly wandering around freely on it’s own within the universe. While our solar system seems to be more of an element in liquid, since we do seem to be fairly well connected to the other solar systems in the milky way, as we all flow around in more of a planar way.
