11 May 2022 — ‘UNBROKEN WHOLENESS’ (DAVID BOHM)
‘The Notion of a Separate Organism is clearly an abstraction, as is also its boundary. Underlying all this is unbroken wholeness even though our civilisation has developed in such a way as to strongly emphasise the separation into parts.’ (David Bohm- The undivided Universe: an ontological interpretation of Quantum Theory)
Quite a revelation to think there is no separation: NO ME AND THE OTHER)!
One wonders if the Native Americans were aware of there being no separation between them and the earth and all its inhabitants.
I have always understood Einstein’s formula E=MC squared to be pointing to the same conclusion : that all is energy.
The question arises when was the Ego Self born?: when did we as individuals start seeing ourselves as separate from the earth, from animals and other human beings? When indeed in David Baum’s terms did our civilisation start to emphasis the separation into parts? A question to which I do not know the answer!
To bring these esoteric ramblings down to a practical level perhaps Unbroken Wholeness’ is merely love, for if indeed, ALL ARE ONE and no separation the EGO SELF is not formulated and SELFISHNESS- has not arisen.
How wonderful to contemplate a world where .Unbroken Wholeness. was the NORM = a world with no wars; with no individuals seeking power over others; where humankind lived happily not only with each other but with nature , insects and animals!
