the universe

The universe is composed of subjects to be communed with, not objects to be exploited. Everything has its own voice. Thunder and lightning and stars and planets, flowers, birds, animals, trees--all these have voices, and they constitute a community of existence that is profoundly related. --Thomas Berry


Each quark a universe unto itself is connected to a larger whole connected to the entirety of the cosmos.
Ot, Dome Bones:

Hipbone connected backbone
Backbone connected shoulder bone
Shoulder bone connected neck bone
Don’t you hear the word of the Lord?
What a beautiful quotation benji!! I couldn't agree more-best to you as always!!
i agree ..
This reminds me of an assignment I once gave my media studies students: design an ad campaign for something of value that you cannot buy.

The concept was utterly foreign to them. They couldn't relate to it. For them, if one had enough coin, they could exploit the laws of physics if need be.

I wish it were easier to convince people otherwise (i.e. the wisdom of Berry's quote), but that's becoming an increasingly harder sell.
Pretty good advice, by my accounting.
benji-thanks for visiting my place today -i think a bio on Cohn would be very good for me to read-those were interesting if scary times and he was an interesting if scary person! Right now I just started a fictionalized account of how history might have gone had Sirhan not assassinated RFK-I just now got into it-and in the preface the author says it will not be Amero-centric and will cover many things-I will come back and let you know if it is any good-best to you as always!!
Good quote. I couldn't agree more
TWM: wuthering strings loosely tied together in a lightning arc, earth to heaven heaven to earth eternal.

Ivan: A-men!

Devin: Thanks and best back.

Foam: this resolution shall hereby pass.

X: can't reason through inherited culture, gotta go straight to the heart.

FWG: should be passed to sons and daughters throughout the land.

MD: it's unanimous now.
So the oneness is the only thing that there is and everything else would be parts or fractions of that.
So instead of saying that the universe is made of 250 billion beings we would say that a galaxy is 1/250billions of the oneness.
