My "everything is maturing" angle, which seems pretty compatible with yours, again would posit that things "become more themselves" over time, or at least healthy ones.Reflex wrote: ↑Mon Sep 04, 2017 8:34 amI'm taking you out of context just to mention that my Omega Point is the convergence I mentioned in my previous post. Given what I've read about physics, it's a real possibility.
Not the dog - she is my mentor, inspiration and guru! :)Reflex wrote:Never thought about it that way, but you're right. I'm retired and my kids grown up so I have a lot of time on my hands but I'm never bored. It's really true: Life begins when the kids leave home and the dog dies.So the search for God is the conduit through which you have lived at least some of your life. Others use a formal religion. For many, it's their family or vocation that provides the focal point and raison d'etre. My conduit shifts - family & friends, the arts, work, now I am on a mission work out what the heck is actually going on with this reality caper, with all angles to be covered.
But that is the bottom line for so many of us - what is actually going on? I'm at the point where I see many things through either/or the lenses of two dualities - maturity and immaturity and order and chaos. There's an arrow from each of the latter to the former. Despite the second law, the extra entropy is out in space, imposed by the ever more concentrated order of worlds and their life.
I note that this is more or less the way the universe is explained - its centre being everywhere with no conceived limit of surface area.Reflex wrote:I take VERY seriously what I said about the circle of infinity whose center is everywhere and circumference nowhere and what it implies.
It implies to me (in my usual academic way :) that there is a core of being (the centre) around which stuff grows, and keeps growing.
