Be an Individual
I just listened to #183 – Grimerica talks Geocentrism and “The Principle” with Rick Delano and KTEE. I found it fascinating, because I’ve reached some of the same conclusions by taking a completely separate path. I have not studied Copernicus, Galileo, or modern physics anymore than the next layman. But I have taken a deep look into esotericism, and what I found offers incredible correlation, coincidence, and – dare I say – synchronicity.
Science deals with how. As such, science uses math strictly for its quantitative abilities. But number has a quality. This is the study of numerology, of number logic.
One is the individual, or the indivisible. To subtract from it destroys the quality that makes it whole. If I chop off my hand, I am no longer fully Andrew. I am one-handed Andrew. Likewise, to add to me makes me more than I was before. If you give me a stick, I am now Andrew with a weapon. If you stand Amber next to me, I am now Andrew with a crush. Take the stick away, take the crush away, and I am Andrew, whole and true.
A very ancient symbol for one is the monad. It is a dot with a circle around it. Thanks to corporate America’s tendency to use ancient symbol to sell us stuff, you’re likely to recognize this symbol as Target’s logo. The dot in the center represents the individual and the circle around it represents the universe around him (or her – Hi Amber!). We are each at the center of the universe, our circumstance forever stretching out around us in all directions. The monad is the individual and his circle of influence. As we move, the universe moves with us. The monad is each and everyone of us. It is you. It is me. It is Amber as she blushes at my awkward advances.
Now I doubt I am literally at the center of the universe. I doubt the Earth, or the Sun, or even the Milky Way Galaxy is at the center of the universe. It is likely some termite mound on a rock spiraling around some far distant star that we’ll never see, that we’ll never know (or perhaps, there is no center!).
I feel that life is special, but I think there is life scattered throughout the stars, because no matter where I go in this world, I find life inevitably encroaching. Crickets, spiders, and ants crawl through the cracks. Mold grows in the shower. The depths of the ocean teem with life. Even pools of glyphosate manage to grow bacteria. I imagine each of these organisms find themselves at the center of creation, with as much above as below, as much in front as behind, as much to the right as to the left.
Despite the host of life everywhere around me, one inevitable fact is always with me. I am always right here, in my skin, at the very center of things. So general relativity doesn’t scare me at all. In fact, general relativity leads me to one final observation: I do matter in this universe. I matter, and you matter, and Amber matters (all the more, because I think I’m in love…).
We should all be individuals. As such, we should follow the heart that anchors us. It is the point that powers the circle of the body. With our heart leading, we should make our worlds better places to live, and better places to visit. We do that by improving ourselves and improving our circumstance.
You are the center of the universe, and now that you know it, how will you use that power? Be great, my people. Be free, and fun, and full of love.
