I tend to take a holistic view of Reality. I believe in the fundamental interconnectedness of all things. For every action, there’s a reaction. For every donut, there is a hole. For every AIG, there is an APPL. For every beautiful red-headed ‘Emily’ in Kansas City on eHarmony, there is a disgruntled anonymous biologist gnashing his teeth and cursing fate somewhere on the East Coast wondering WHY does she not return her e-mails. There is a time and season for all things. A time to plant and a time to reap. A time for war and a time for peace. A time to laugh and a time to cry. A time to buy and a time to hock it on Craigslist. A time to read and a time to re-read lest one missed the point the first time. The Universe, see, is one vast gigantic whole. It is made of threads…strings…so forget that nonsense you’ve heard about atoms. Everything is connected to everything else.
Our physicists tell us all atoms (strings) know the location of all other atoms in the Universe. You’d think this undermines Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle, but it doesn’t. Good things occur because this is inherent in the structure of Reality. They MUST occur. Bad things happen because the threads get tangled.
Bob Dylan alluded to this once and should have won the Nobel for physics, but alas! Sweden was undergoing social tangledness and missed it.
The secret to the good life is to KEEP MOVING FORWARD. This stretches the threads out and keeps them from bad tangled situations. This is why Sedentarism and mediocrity is bad. The good things in life right are due to (can ONLY be due to) galloping through Life at warp speed…stretching out the space/time continuum…exercising it.
Always remember this.
