WHEN I LET GO OF MYSELF TO IMAGINE, IM ACTUALLY COMING BACK TO MYSELF BECAUSE THEY’RE ALWAYS PROJECTIONS.. FANTASY GIVES US AN ACCESS TO OUR OWN REAL EXPERIENCE.
BANNED TEDX: The Science Delusion - Rupert Sheldrake
“I’m taking the radical view that living organisms are living organisms–not machines. They’re just what most people would think they are … I think the whole universe is like an organism. It’s born small in the Big Bang, it’s like the hatching of the cosmic egg and after that it grows and as it grows new forms and structures appear within it, like a developing plant or animals. It’s not like any machine we know.”
THEN I WAS STANDING ON THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN OF THEM ALL, AND ROUND ABOUT BENEATH ME WAS THE WHOLE HOOP OF THE WORLD.
AND WHILE I STOOD THERE I SAW MORE THAN I CAN TELL AND I UNDERSTOOD MORE THAN I SAW; FOR I WAS SEEING IN A SACRED MANNER THE SHAPES OF ALL THINGS IN THE SPIRIT, AND THE SHAPE OF ALL SHAPES AS THEY MUST LIVE TOGETHER LIKE ONE BEING.
AND I SAW THAT THE SACRED HOOP OF MY PEOPLE WAS ONE OF MANY HOOPS THAT MADE ONE CIRCLE, WIDE AS DAYLIGHT AND AS STARLIGHT, AND IN THE CENTRE GREW ONE MIGHTY FLOWERING TREE TO SHELTER ALL THE CHILDREN OF ONE MOTHER AND ONE FATHER.
AND I SAW THAT IT WAS HOLY.
