#157 – Do the Math

In a sense life is a numbers game. How important is the math? Well, if we can’t learn a few algebraic equations, our species won’t survive. More about that later. The solutions we will need to create a sustainable global community are not complex. We will need to discard outmoded theories and constructs which currently act as barriers to our realization of Simple Reality.

Ignoring the principle of Oneness we have shattered our world into separate and often seemingly  unrelated pieces. “Our tendency to divide the perceived world into individual and separate things and to experience ourselves as isolated egos in this world is seen as an illusion which comes from our measuring and categorizing mentalities.” (1)

We have come to rely on the intellect which cannot see the underlying simplicity of Creation. “Einstein’s triumphs were guided not by strange new experiments but by rigorous logic, not by the most esoteric questions of the day but by the most basic ones. He famously argued that ‘all physical theories, their mathematical expressions notwithstanding, ought to lend themselves to so simple a description that even a child could understand them.” (2) 

As much as we might not want to admit it some of the old theories of both math and science are outmoded. “Second only to the Second Law of Thermodynamics, science is most committed to Darwin’s theory of evolution. The problem with Darwin’s theory is that there has not been enough geological time for the evolutionary changes to have taken place. The universe would have had to have been in existence trillions of times longer than it has. And secondly, Darwin’s theory of evolution depends on chance mutations which find a foothold by natural selection or the survival of the fittest. There are mathematicians who, thanks to computers, are able to convincingly prove that life cannot occur by chance.” (3)  We are the creators of our own experience.
