Clearly, we are closest to our nuclear family, our children and Significant Others, and not particularly close to the Hamas terrorist in Gaza… and even a touch further than a random pebble on Andromeda
â€¦but, yes, we are all integrally interconnected in one Whole
We are AUTONOMOUS, but we are also simultaneously a COLLECTIVE
(No, I donâ€™t know how the voting goes)
Not only are we all, indeed, connected;
we are, on some level, at least intermittently COMMUNICATIVE10,11, as well
We are all connected, not just on the molecular level, not just on the atomic level, and not just on the biological level, but, as well, somehow on the consciousness level.
We individually and cumulatively aim and advance towards an â€œInfinite Perfection/Extraordinariation.â€
It is this Infinite Potential Perfection which pulls all forwards (and, indeed, into existence itself) …just as it is this
inexorable Drive for Potential which drives the â€˜advanceâ€™,
because Q4P is SPIRAL with elements of circularity …and therefore both â€œpullingâ€ as well as â€œpushingâ€ simultaneously.
And when we do have something to say to our â€˜cousinsâ€™ concerning potentially optimizing this â€˜advanceâ€™, however infinitely removed these â€˜cousinsâ€™ are, we will, indeed communicate on some level, for, we are all
â€œForward Scoutsâ€ in the vast cosmic army of POTENTIAL…
probing for potential ADVANCE
probing for an OPENING
probing for a Lineâ€“ofâ€“Attack
but we are also each individually partner â€“ Generals in this Collective / Arrayâ€“onâ€“theâ€“March
cumulatively assessing and analyzing any genetic mutation which presents itself…
one infinite organic system of pure and unbridled potentialityâ€ arching through â€“ and encompassing all â€“
Time and Space and Physical and Nonâ€“physicality… stretching throughout TIME and preâ€“TIME…
——————- NOTES by KHALIL ——————-
10 Communicative A: In Orot Teshuva, Rav Kook writes that with sin man experienced detachment from fellow creatures. Man becomes isolated and alone until he repents. Rav Kook reasonably points to a familiar emotional responseâ€” the â€™outsidernessâ€™ associated with sin or failure. With regard to this he writes: â€It is impossible to express this vastly profound concept.â€ The authorâ€™s principle that all creation is communicative, provides insight into how such feelings arise.
11 Communicative B: Considering Rav Kookâ€™s spiritual observation in light of the authorâ€™s framework, it can be concluded that when an individual sinsâ€” failing to advance towards his potentialâ€” the collective cosmos objects to this action, and the individual senses this dissatisfaction. In the fourth chapter of his Orot Teshuva Rabbi Kook writes: â€The individual and the collective soul, the world soul, the soul of all realms of being cries out like a fierce lioness in anguish for total perfection, for an ideal form of existence, and we feel the pain, and it purges us… And the soul grows toward perfection.â€ Thus, Rav Kook (a man of astonishing spiritual sensitivity) detected a sort of global interâ€“communication that was driving man towards his potential and spiritual perfection. [Birnbaumâ€™s themes dovetail with Kookâ€™s from the very beginning of the Summa Metaphysica series.]
