Technology has allowed human beings to be more connected than ever before. Until the batteries die.
But, the idea of connectivity has taken hold on consciousness. It’s logical to believe to we all are connected by something. What I do or think affects others, what they do and think affects me, and so on around the world. Most of the time.
So, in thinking about this, I’m concluding that connectivity isn’t between material particles and quantum energy, but between truths.
I think the ideas of honesty, health, holiness, and harmony are all connected.
I think the ideas of dishonesty, disease, hate, and disorder never connect. At least not for long. They seem to always self-destruct.
I watched the film, “I Am,” directed by Tom Shadyac, the other night. “I Am” is a documentary about Shadyac’s pursuit of truth. After an accident, he realized there was more to life than money and fame.
Shadyac interviews prominent thinkers, including Howard Zinn, Desmond Tutu, Lynn McTaggart, for their insights into truth. It becomes obvious to him that there is more good going on in the world, than bad.
An experiment with a bowl of yogurt demonstrated how our emotions and thoughts can influence living beings and things. They discussed the mounting data being collected to verify the power of the human consciousness.
I think the data is only a symbol of the greater reality. The consciousness of good will maintain connectivity, while the consciousness off bad, will disconnect and self-destruct.
Isaiah 55: 8-9, ESV
For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
