The Universe is in Some Deep Sense Tied to Homo Sapiens


Image
Today I think we are beginning to suspect that man is not a tiny cog that doesn’t really make much difference to the running of the huge machine, but rather that there is a much more intimate tie between man and the universe than we heretofore suspected. The physical world is in some deep sense tied to the human being.

The human observer may be essential, but in what manner does this work? Does our observations crystalize a cloudy reality of possibilities? Is this where you are leading?

The impulse to feel that connection has been felt and discussed in many cultures for a long time.

Even without drugs! Add drugs - and yup. With that help, many more achieve deeply feeling belief in our connectedness to all things.

Re: The Universe is in Some Deep Sense Tied to Homo Sapiens


High Flight
By John Gillespie Magee, Jr.
(A sonnet written by John Gillespie Magee, an American pilot with the Royal Canadian Air Force in the Second World War. He came to Britain, flew in a Spitfire squadron, and was killed at the age of nineteen on 11 December 1941 during a training flight from the airfield near Scopwick.)

"Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds -
and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of -
wheeled and soared and swung high in the sunlit silence.
Hovering there I've chased the shouting wind along
and flung my eager craft through footless halls of air.
"Up, up the long delirious burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,
where never lark, or even eagle, flew;
and, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
the high untrespassed sanctity of space,
put out my hand and touched the face of God."

Re: The Universe is in Some Deep Sense Tied to Homo Sapiens


I just stumbled across this rather innovative article, which addresses the Universe and human life. So I will pin the article to this thread.

https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/insights-more-meaningful-existence/202006/how-can-life-be-valuable-in-cold-and-mechanistic

We may have been allowed to develop to accomplish this?
