When I Join The Dots (final part)

I write about such topics not often though they hardly left me alone. It is hard to talk with others about things like universe and  wholeness of life. People with and without knowledge both have less care for such topics. So whenever i feel like i speak my mind through my online journal with hope if someone thinks alike . Today after breakfast when my younger son on the solar battery  (our power was gone) for computer it was 11 am almost .Usually after finishing my morning prayer i go to the kitchen for cooking but today i thought why not taking advantage of running battery and write something for half hour at least . I was staring at  my laptop screen and my mind went blank. I forgot totally what points i had in my mind to write further. Actually i have kind of deadline phobia ,once i have a time limit i go blank except in my examination papers because that was about memory and this is about thinking and coming up with accurate idea and words . So when i could not think of  a single word  i just quit the idea of writing and almost  got up when a question appeared in my mind smoothly,

 " is there anyone on this planet who is thinking just like me? Someone who believes that universe has some thinking mind or soul and therefore we have brain . I resettled in my chair and pulled the laptop nearer  with slightly shaking fingers. Yes i was hopping and praying secretly that may i find something encouraging . I could not thought of better so i just wrote in search bar "a thinking part of universe "  results were not pleasing until i scrolled down and found this site here . The site had interview of the writer  of  the book which is about consciousness of the universe. This was like jackpot for me .

I was in hurry then so i read some part of his interview . I will read rest later and visit his blog too. What i expected was so common since always  in this world . Every person on earth who presents idea with which no body is familiar gets rejection immediately. Writer Philip Goff's case is not exception too. But i know it is just beginning  for a human brain to explore things that seem larger than itself to plain eye but nothing is bigger than brain believe me . I think in next century scientists  will start to accept this reality that without conscious effort no universe can not begin nor it can permeate  with such perfection and organization . 

Universe has brain or soul  and she is doing everything thoughtfully and carefully .When i used phrase in my posts " we are brain of the universe" i did not know how to put that as because we are made up matter as well so matter must has ability which we inherited from it as thinkers. Philip Goff  is a panpsychist and he shares his belief in this book that consciousness is quality inherited to all matter and because we are part of matter as we have brain .Because we are living part of matter so our brain is strongest among all . I think in future may be not so far if Nature want us  to explore Her most special and most beautiful part she will let us invent tools that will capture how these simplest brain in the simple basic particles work . Though lets not forget that knowing something does not make us learn from where it originates .If this is going to happen we are going to learn origin of our own brain but will we be allowed to learn from where universe inherited her brain ? 

The basic elements of  universe are few ,rest of others came into existence after various blending of these gradually .Scientists  tell us how these basic elements  form new elements and  equipped planet for us with everything we need here to live and grow on  physical and  mental both levels. mathematician reveal that how same few rules and laws  apply on everything from tiniest atom to largest planet  in this universe . Nothing seems random at all to me and now i know to many .Some give voice to their thoughts and some just blow them into nothingness.

I think it's wrong speaking our mind can be the first step or second, third supporting step so we should speak what we think without thinking of others what will they say about it but with gratitude that we did our part :)


God Bless You All friends! thank you for bearing with me !

  5. I studied metaphysical, quantum physics, philosophy, some religion (these were on my own,,no classes)... etc..you name it I had my book open and always reading - for the past 45 years really if I count them correctly. I just boil it down to this, the creator doesn't care what you call it, it is infinite intelligence and we are all the mind of the infinite creator. When we go out on our own to try and do everything ourselves without recognizing, acknowledging and knowing what it is that created us and joining with that, then we screw stuff up. It's that vital true connection that when we invite it in, know it's there and listen in the quiet we get prompted to do a certain thing or not. But we have free will whether we do that or not. So for me God is simply the Platform of All Life and we are all connected down to the smallest particle ever discovered. Anyway, that's my story, I'm sticking to it lol. And religion - no thank you lol. I'm not a sinner and the Creator will always love us all - I believe we create our own hell. I like what you read - it's so inspiring.

    1. your reading passion and variation is very inspiring dear Sandy !
      forty five years of reading wow that sounds like a dream come true thing to me amazing !

      i could never convince myself to follow that image of God people or religion shown to me . The concept both talked was really narrow and frightening . Even as child i was not impressed with any such idea . I always unconsciously or consciously found Creator something overwhelming ,something existing not just around but is strongly connected to me somehow . I always felt that God loves his each creation equally from an insect to a pious saint because to him they are his children . With age i realized that there can be no certain day or time to worship or to get close to Creator because these are ways to apprehend him to feel that God is not separate from us but he is closer to us than we are close to ourselves . Keeping him in thoughts is not to fear from him but to love him with gratefulness and deepen this love so we can never stray from his path . we should adopt his goodness and love to make this world a peaceful and beautiful place . If we can do this we create our heaven on earth right here .
      i am thankful for your encouragement always !

    2. love what you wrote. God is everywhere - every breath we breathe. But the air we breathe with its' pollution is not the air that we breathe with the creator - that's pure light.

    3. how true about "breathing in light " dear Sandy

      i started to feel this since i am on my journey to strengthen my consciousness ,my longing for divine truth seems to open some unseen doors in the sky and i realize a constant smooth shower of light falling upon me soothingly ,i feel it how it penetrate within my veins and lightens my being enough to rise above earthly ugliness and float in the divine blueness of sky while absorbing utterly peace and joy. it can seem a silly claim at first a childish one but those who experience it reveal actual meaning of wisdom that free one from unnecessary weight of bad ,bitter thoughts and emotions and fill her ,him with light of insightfulness which helps to create a meaningful healthy life in harmony with all around!

    1. i think we all have right to speak our mind and if we are sure that it won't hurt anyone's feeling we must say it simply .i believe that such thoughts are gifts of God and we are obliged to share them with others because they can be prove a first step towards some kind of betterment

  8. Is it necessary to say this? Is it necessary to say it now? Am I the right person to say it? Only with three yes to these questions should we speak.
    Have a great weekend.

    1. i agree that saying something before audience needs careful contemplation dear Pedro but as i mentioned in my sidebar i write whatever comes in my mind and i have all right to say it on my personal page ,if someone finds it awkward he ,she can avoid it ,people do this normally :)

  13. "that universe has some thinking mind or soul"

    Interesting!
    I think so too. Of course there is a thinking force. How else did we get daydreams and puppies?

    1. if we are made up of same stuff that make stars and planets it seems very possible that we have got power of thinking or mind from basic particles who's behaviors make possible all creations we see today

  14. Thank you for sharing Philip Goff's book, Baili! I am very interested in consciousness, and I ordered the book today. I think other living things approach consciousness. I'm thinking about my friend Cheri's shitzu Sam. They are coming to visit tomorrow, and then we are going out for dinner. Sam gets to stay in our house while Cheri, her husband Gary, Terry, and I go out for dinner. Sam gets excited every time he sees our house. He loves me. I see this little fluff ball of a dog who brings so much joy and love, and he's thinking every moment he is with us. And I think of all the pets I have loved, and our family has loved. It's not much of a step to think that our pets have consciousness. I think of Utah's Pando. It is a single plant, an aspen tree that covers 106 acres, the largest living thing on the planet. Who is to say it does not have some form of consciousness? Its experience of the Earth is very different from mine. The great whales, the dolphins, the octopus, the "General Sherman sequoia tree (2300 to 2700 years old), who knows what they experience and know? Panpsychism seems possible to me. Thank you for always speaking your mind and sharing your thoughts, Baili! You push me and my thinking. Wish me luck tomorrow. I'm going to paint a concrete porch and steps. I'm dreading it, but I'll get it done! Much love to you, my dear friend!

    1. my interest in the consciousness deepened when after my parents death i started to read holy book every morning dear Louise .after some months or an year i think when while meditating or reading whatever you call it i gradually realized that my focus is getting bit better every day and i have begun to understand underline message of these lines .and when matched both the ability to comprehend and the slowly strengthening focus i found it astonishingly a supreme joy and a beginning of something new and really important in my life (personal).

      i thought so this is it hua ? it is all about "the way we look " and how carefully we look "
      the more we think the better we understand . the book i used to read every day of my childhood, adolescence and youth and never got anything out of it now revealing new realities to me and unfolding truths that i might have died without learning them .
      then in next few years my mind turned towards thing which is root of everything. The consciousness . i observed that my strengthening consciousness was not just introducing me to new joys but earning me pleasures that can be dream of any woman who was slipping down from the hill of youth and entering in time which feels like one is left alone in a desert . one has to face this bitterest reality that things that kept you center of attention were temporary and if you want people respect you and treat you better specially those who matter to you most ,you have to awake and work hard . So i though i was never a person who relies on looks or physical appearance started struggle to rise my soul side or make my consciousness powerful .

      i gained some positive results from this but i think this has made me long for more and keep walking until the last breath.

      my uttermost interest is in soul side of existence or consciousness. I think we are unaware of where we made mistake . i know it looks impossible to locate or capture consciousness or soul but once we acknowledge it we can make our brains willfully and can achieve what we have been missing because we did not believe in most obvious reality flourishing before our eyes in our life .

      setting our souls free from cage of physical demands can heighten our rank in the classroom of Nature and bring us incredible success i am very assure of it .
      thank you for being greatest supporter and precious friend always!
      you are amazing and very special person indeed!

    2. Thank you, Baili, for sharing your thoughts. Like you, I am not someone who focused on looks, clothes, jewelry, etc. None of those things last. It's much more important to focus on developing your character. I try always to smile and to be kind and generous. I try to walk in another person's shoe, so I can understand that person better. I fail sometimes, but no one is perfect. This raises my consciousness and strengthens my empathy and compassion. I hope it's improving my soul too. I know that women my age are often invisible and not valued as much as the young. I refuse to feel diminished. One way I fight back is by blogging and connecting with amazing people like you. I also work out to be strong, I learn new things every day, and I do creative things to feed my soul. Whatever time I have left, I want to be engaged in life and to be improving my heart, mind, and soul day by day. You inspire me always, Baili! I'm so privileged to have you as a friend. Hugs to you!

  16. Tem um ditado popular, aqui em Portugal, que diz: Cada cabeça, sua sentença!
    Ou seja, por norma as pessoas tendem a ter pensamentos e opiniões sobre tudo e mais algum coisa, muito diferentes... pensamos... logo, a humanidade se divide e deixa de chegar a acordo sobre o que quer que seja... e bem menos se mobiliza, para o que quer que seja, quando é necessário.
    Já alguém disse, em tempos, que não é a vida que separa as pessoas, são as ideias.
    E então... alguém se lembrou de aos poucos tentar pôr alguma ordem nesta nossa casa, que é o mundo.
    Apareceram religiões e a política, para organizar os pensamentos das pessoas, em grandes blocos, tentando-se assim harmonizar-se os pensamentos e vontades globais...
    Mas porque pensamos... as religiões e a política, continuam a fomentar divisões, e a enveredar por caminhos de medo, para melhor controlar quem pensa e o que pensa, afastando-se tantas vezes, e de tantas formas da ideia primordial... tentar melhor a essência de cada ser humano, em valores, humanidade, empatia, generosidade, espírito coletivo, em aceitação.
    Qual a posição do mundo neste momento, sobre quase tudo?... A grande maioria das pessoas continua sem se entender, sobre quase nada... e ainda com muitas mais clivagens entre elas... motivadas pelos movimentos que as deveriam unir: políticas e religiões! Uma colónia de formigas ou abelhas, continua bem mais organizada, unida e feliz, do que este nosso mundo desde os primórdios da existência. Qual será o seu segredo?
    Beijinhos, Baili! Feliz semana, com saúde, para todos aí desse lado!

  17. thank you Ana for amazing kind words always!

    i agree that religions and politics took their start to bring unity and betterment in the condition of the world but as you and me we all know that power seekers used these platform for their own selfish and ugly purpose .

    world has just arrived hardly in t's adolescence ,maturity is still a dream that will take time to come true .

    people may be know nothing but we know that they have started to realize their ignorance at least which is a healthy sign i believe . this acknowledgement makes possible to our first step towards "learning"

    being an optimistic i dream for the day when each of us inspite of having separate brain in his head will be conscious enough to think for the goodness of all as whole .

    here a quoting from holy book that "despair is a sin" i agree to it fullest not religion wise but because i have faith in Goodness and it's tremendous power to change things for better .i believe the positive energy of this of this universe will strengthen us once we will look for common combine good because it has ben promising behavior of Nature since beginning though we less ponder on it .

  18. Everything in the Universe is connected. We may think we are separate but we are part of the 'whole'. We are universally connected in matter and spirit.

    Mathematical patterns can be seen in nature; plants, planet cycles, months, seasons, speed of light. It is quite fascinating when you notice it and as you say 'join the dots' :-)
