If the universe (or multiverse, if you prefer) is indeed generating a pure mathematical randomness of all possible patterns (which physicists seem to think is very likely) – with entropy being the process of evolution where all the stuff that exists is continually being divided into smaller parts and recombined into new things – then we end up with a reality that grows infinitely more interesting, complex, challenging, fun, weird, and unpredictably beautiful with each passing moment. We’re not talking pure boring perfection of ectasy all the time, of course, but an ever increasing level of discovery of intersting and amusing and fun stuff.

This means that while it might seem that everything that possibly could be created, invented, explored, discovered, and known might already have been created, invented, explored, discovered, and known, in the next moment those things will fall apart and reorganize themselves into totally new things, being created, invented, explored, discovered, and known.

The universe’s story not only goes on, but the plot always thickens, the people (whatever type exists at the time) always get more character development, the settings always get more atmospheric, and the special effects always get more stunning.

The Solstice is a time of change, stopping what we’ve been doing for a bit and then redirecting ourselves. Tilting another way.

Using this as a signal to reconsider what questions and problems you have had in life, and revisiting the answers, or lack of answers, you’ve found so far, to see if there might be some new person, place, or thing that might offer you something new.

Who haven’t you asked yet?

Which animal, vegetable, and/or mineral might have some nugget of information that you never imagined even existed?

What if enlightenment was hiding under that rock over there?

This solstice, turn some things over, maybe, just to see what you might have been missing.

Ask someone you never thought of asking before. Ask them how you might be able to do something that you’ve always wanted to do, but had given up on hoping you could ever get to do.

You never know who might show up with something unimaginably valuable…

When the generation of humans born in the 2010s and 2020s come into power, our world is going to go through an almost unbelievably dramatic paradigm change, from one that is focused on making material things (animal/vegetable/mineral) using a top-down/centralized control of life to one that is focused on exploring and collecting the immaterial ideas/information/energy while using a bottom-up/decentralized control of life.

And it is the more Autism Spectrum types, or at least the personally avoidant/flight introvert types, who will be the ones to lead us (again, from below, not above, us), gently nudging us forward in all different directions as they focus on understanding how the whole universe wants to flow, and helping the world be more fluid and free, so that everyone can follow their own unique path through life. This will allow the whole system to turn into something almost magical, the way a drop of ink in clear water will swirl into chaotically stunning patterns…

The future will be one where there are infinite possibilities, and our wildest dreams of today might pale in comparison to even just every day life in a decade or two.

Nature knows how to make a beautiful life, we just need to go with the flow

Many times when I’m talking to people about the future, and the direction that I see things moving, based on the patterns of growth in life, they start to doubt me, and start looking to tell me all the reasons why the future is only going to get worse. Competition is “normal”. Humans are inherently messed up. Life is purposeless. Physics doesn’t care. We’re destroying the planet. Etc.

And, ironically, I both want to reassure them that they are mistaken, and let them know that whatever they feel is what they should feel.

Any time anyone, including yourself, tries to make you believe that what you are feeling is not what you’re supposed to be feeling, whether that is rage, avoidance, depression, or joy, you can be assured that they are confused. Feelings are the body’s way of sending you a message about the state of things, so that you can make a more informed decision about what to do.

Ideally, we can allow our emotions to be fully heard and respected and expressed before we try to solve any intellectually complex problem. This way we allow ourselves to focus on the past first, and then the future, using the parts of our brain that are best suited for each of these things.
