Atoms to Universe, pattern of nature, and consciousness.
My intent in making this post is of course discussion with my fellow Avalonians and to hopefully be referred to some reading material or documentary that combines and discusses what I will describe in the following.
Firstly, natures pattern of design is found to be a repeating pattern, many times reflecting the golden spiral, golden ratio, Fibonacci numbers, etc. We can see the self repeating patterns in many of natures creations:
Now let's look at the following diagram. What does it represent?
If you thought its a representation of an Atom, you are correct.
You would also be correct if you thought it represnts a subatomic particle, or even a solar system.
The diagram is merely representative of a center/nucleus being orbited. This is precisely what our solar system is, and also what atoms/subatomic particles are.
It seems nature really does favor self repeating patterns from the smallest particles known to man to the biggest.
So what is an atom? It is positive and negative energies orbiting around a neutral energy in its center. It is also the building block of everything. Everything... even solid matter like the chair you are sitting on is made of this energy.
To recap and summarize quickly, everything is made up of atoms (energy) and nature tends to design in self repeating patterns.
What is the nature of consciousness in atoms? Scientifically speaking, it is my understanding that atoms form a new consciousness to encompass their current form. What this means is that a single atom will behave as a single atom. When atoms combine, due to external forces, they create a molecular structure. Upon taking this new form, whatever it may be, the combined atoms form a new unity-consciousness that behaves as the newly created structure. So as atoms combine making bigger and/or more complex structures, so too do they form a new unified consciousness.
Lets discuss this in the context of a human. A human is made up of many complex structures of combined atoms, and also has a very complex and advanced consciousness. Every cell crawling around in our bodies acts on its own, fulfilling a separate task, in service of the big picture..... us. On a side note, our design also follows the golden ration and our limbs are one of the many examples found on the human body of self repeating patterns.
The complex consciousness formed by the microscopic atoms within a relatively galactic human body is mind blowing to say the least. And we, just like everything else, are made up of the positive, negative, and neutral energies of an atom.
So lets theoretically scale this up a notch or two, seeing as how nature likes to repeat patterns. Since, everything is made up of energy, what is the difference, really, between an atom and a solar system? The sun (made up of atoms/energy) is a center point being orbited by planets (bodies of energy). What if nature created atoms in the image of a solar system? The solar system, on the scale of the universe, is no different than an atom on the scale of our planet. And if the solar system is just a single atom combined with other many such atoms, it must form a structure. That structure as we know it is called the universe.
But we are missing something here and it is the concept of consciousness. Seeing as how when atoms form bigger and more complex structures, they also form a more complex consciousness... what says the complex unification of solar systems won't also create a complex consciousness.
It seems to me that the universe is far more complex and inclusive than the human body could ever hope to be. It only makes sense that the universe, as a whole, must encompass such a vast consciousness... that the only suitable name for it, in the human language, would be 'god". We may very well be the cells crawling around inside the body of the universe, as the cells of the human body crawl around in us, serving the bigger picture.
This fits in with the statements "As above so below" and "Created man in his image/likeness".
This theory can very well take away the need for extra dimensions, spirits, etc etc., and can also explain what we would refer to as paranormal phenomena. Cells in the human body communicate energetically (telepathically). Synapses fire off electrical signals transmitting information. We, as cells on the universal body, might be getting such signals from the universal brain from time to time. We may fire off electrical signals to one another. Maybe meditation feels good because we clear up the instructional path between ourselves and the universal brain which strengthens our connection to it. If we lose our connection to the brain, we may become a cancer to the universe just like the cells in our body becomes cancerous when it becomes disconnected from the rest of the body.
Oh boy, I've lost my train of thought a few times while writing this and I've caught myself rambling on so I am just going to stop and post this now. Pardon the incoherence.
