What intelligent dance is happening between you and the environment?

reblogged this on metaphyzgirl.

the biology of belief

Contrary to what conventional science and religion have been telling us, evolution is neither random nor predetermined, but rather an intelligent dance between organism and environment. When conditions are ripe, either through crisis or opportunity, something unpredictable happens to bring the biosphere into a new balance at a higher level of coherence.

While we often perceive of examples of spontaneous remission as miraculous healings that happen by the grace of God, looking a little deeper we see something else at work. Quite often these fortunate individuals actively participate in their own healing by consciously or unconsciously making a key, significant change in their beliefs and behaviors.

So here is the bad news and the good news. The story of human life on Earth is yet to be determined. Spontaneous evolution will depend on whether we humans are willing to make changes in our individual and collective beliefs and behaviors, and…

  2. Excellent call. And I’m frequently saddened by the fact that Darwin wrote a second major work on evolution which explored and elaborated on his earlier survival of the fittest theories, with ones about the role of cooperative behaviours in evolution, but it came too late and was ignored and supressed for obvious reasons. The over abundance of study on chimpanzees as man’s closest counterpart in the primate world was a big mistake too, because they can be frequently violent, and this perhaps reinforced a certain world view, which seemed to served as a convenient justification for man’s violence. The other most intelligent, primates were the Bonobos, noted for there compassion, extremely well developed, social intelligence and ability to peacefully resolve comflicts. I believe if Darwin’s second work was embraced with the recognition that it deserved, there might have been a stronger scientific empahasis on cooperation as the dominant trait and humanity would have developed a very different view if itself.

    1. Thank you for those comments Leeby Geeby, I wasn’t aware about Darwin’s second work! And yes, I so agree with you about the Bonobos, I have seen nature documentaries about them on tv and really enjoyed it.
