We are only at the open door into the mind, and those few glimpses science has been able to achieve are few and fleeting. And yet, as one stands back and watches each branch of knowledge develope its reach ever deeper and wider, we learn. And how we learn, we are beginning to learn. And how we all develope has become clearer: clear as mud, perhaps still in many areas, but through the silt of our awareness we begin to see patterns emerge that link us all: the universe in the grain of sand and below.
And how the triangulation of life sustains, and seems to create life from inert in as natural a process as how a leaf on a tree is so alike a mangrove forest in a flood plain: first there are none, then one, then it multiplies itself into three, again, and again. At this point, triangulation appears to take hold in the situation, and success multiplies itself into a colony, and repeats this pattern through existence until or unless it meets an opposing force.
In this case, it or we retreat, or die, adapt, shrink. However, favorable mutations occur which can explode the colony, organism, group in it's range and success. How you see this and are able to internalize a deep mystery of life in this is up to you. Here are three examples of extraordinary truths that we have only recently had the technology possible to begun to reach inside and examine ourselves and see beyond ordinary brilliance into the logical capacity to benefit by a deeper understanding of our world, the vast beyond, the deep inside.
-1-Study a tree leaf, and compare it to an arial photo of a mangrove forest in a flood plain: they share a logical pattern and structure that is perfectly predictable. If, like the brilliant savant, you cannot relate to people, you study this pattern to the point of seeing some universal truths. In the case of brain seizures in some cases, you begin to mentally identify and internalize this natural understanding of the nature of life formation. If you clear out the clatter of people and voices, and look at life step by logical step, you see what normal people do not.
-First, there are none, zero. Then there is one, then three, six, nine, and beyond to confirmation.
-2-Consider life one seed at a time, and nurture and learn by it's success. How we came out of the sea may be happening again with our help: on the Red Sea in Africa a Japanese American scientist is helping locals create a Garden of Eden where the desert meets the sea. At places where fresh water streams run into the sea, locals plant a large mangrove seed inside a tin can for protection from insects, an iron rod nearby, and a plastic bag with chemicals such as potash, potassium, whatever the science requires, and soon a lush mangrove tree is marrying it's neighbor tree.
- their root systems building a network that draws small sea life, locals are soon catching fish in the growing delta forest.
-3- We all came out of Africa only 50,000 years ago, and around most of the world, usually along the sea shore by 30,000 years ago, coming into Asia, then Europe, then America only since then. And it all happened by the same individual family, who killed off any earlier Neanderthals or who ever were in their way.
And science now deducts this all took place at the pace of an elopement a year-my thoughts- further away from the family encampment by the fire by the beach. As if God had been that protective Japanese American scientist making each new beach landing a success.
The study of how we are as of a mangrove seed made free is only in it's infancy, really. Like us all. Move over. No, you. Right, then, see you. Quick, Zsa Zsa, while they are learning to talk and sing by the fire, we have our own words. The next beach over is way better, greener grass all ours. Now, while the ice is back so much, we go.
