Session 12 - Nature Is One Law

×

Today we can see scientists' views about the world being global and integral, that we are in a "holistic" world. The word "holistic" is from the word "whole," or "one." There are numerous studies about this, some of which will be introduced later, and thousands of scientists already support it.


It has nothing to do with any religious opinions or perceptions. Rather, this view stems purely out of scientific research, without any prejudice. It has nothing to do with religion, faith, nor any direction that does not derive from empiric research. We rely solely on the practical research of nature, without any preconceived notions. It does not belong to any religion or faith, it is based on historical development.


Nature is one. We only "scratch" a few pieces of information from it, which years ago seemed to us as disconnected. But today we are discovering that physics, chemistry, biology, and zoology are all connected. We know that in every creation there are atoms and molecules, which if connected one way, form into one thing, and if connected another way, form into another thing.


In other words, we see that the general elements and forces are common in all of Nature's levels, but that same force operates on each level at an extent suitable for that level—still, vegetative, animate, or human. The power in the atoms and molecules acts as an attracting or as a repelling force. Within us, it expands and contracts the lungs and the heart, creates conflicts between fact and doubt, and so forth. Whatever the case, it always involves two forces acting against each other, brought about by a single force that balances them, since the whole of Nature is drawn toward balance.


The fact that there are two forces in Nature, reception and bestowal, doesn't contradict the fact that one law manages both. The situation in Nature is not that everything is scattered randomly, but rather, especially today, science is discovering that we are all interdependent. Thus, the crisis exists already on the human level, too. It forces us to recognize that we are all in one system, and that humans are also a part of Nature, it is Nature on the human level.


When we study particular parts of Nature, such as climate or other phenomena, we see how everything is connected to everything else. For now, we are perceiving things through a very partial, fragmented image,and thus. we are perceiving only a small part of our world. But because we are feeling the crisis through very bad situations and bad feelings toward one another, we must study and explore the situation as quickly as possible, and learn how to turn these forces of Nature from their negative images, to their positive ones. If there anything else we can do?

Topic

These days, science has proven that the desire for balance between two opposing forces acts at all levels of nature, and leads the entire creation towards balance.

Main Points

  • The explanation of the global education system is not based on religion, philosophy, or on morality type systems, but only on scientific research.

"In this article the broadest possible, most inclusive meaning of biodiversity is adopted. Biodiversity has been described as "the variety of life and its processes in an area". To this we can add "the popular way of recognizing the ecological concept that everything is connected to everything else. ... The most complex functions are those of stability and harmony (Functions 17 and 18). These depend on most if not all of the other functions. The functions contributing to "ecosystem level" biodiversity may include very different combinations of functions depending on the particular ecosystem. Generally, the table illustrates that the more complex a function, the more it relates to, even depends upon, other functions."

Following are three important quotations from three great works, for you to consider and enjoy. 

The first quotation is from the book, "Wholeness and the Implicate Order" by one of the greatest physicists of all time, David Bohm:

"The sensation that all parts exist in a separate form is a proven illusion, and this illusion cannot act in any other form, other than to lead us to constant conflict and confusion."

D. Bohm

The second quotation is from an essay by Marek Roland-Mieszkowski, a Canadian physicist:

"It is obvious that the entropy of the Biosphere is decreasing continuously (at least it was before the industrial revolution and deforestation).This means that the matter involved in the formation of the Biosphere is getting more and more organized (less random).It was pointed out by many that life seems to defy the II Law of Thermodynamics, which states, that entropy of any system should be increasing. Several attempts were made to explain this striking phenomenon on the basis of the "Theory of Complexity", which suggests, that there are undiscovered laws of nature which are responsible for "Self- Organization" of organisms and the Biosphere [*4-7]. This paper explains the principles responsible for the formation and maintenance of life on Earth and shows that there is no violation of the II Law of Thermodynamics in the case of organisms and the Biosphere."

*Biosphere: The totality of biological systems that exist on earth

M. R. Mieszkowski

And this third quotation is attributed to the greatest physicist and scientist of all time, Albert Einstein.

"Everything is determined, the beginning as well as the end, by forces over which we have no control. It is determined for the insect as well as for the star. Human beings, vegetables, or cosmic dust, we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible piper."

A. Einstein

Question 1: Following are three central ideas from this session. Match each of the central ideas to one of the above quotations that best supports it. List the scientist name and then indicate the number of the idea that is the best match for that scientist:

1. There is a force, a law of nature, that manages all of creation.
2. Two forces act, one against the other, and are acted upon by one force that balances between them, for all of nature is drawn to balance.
3. The world is integral, we are found in a holistic, perfect world.

Question 2:  Which example among the following pairs exemplifies the action of two opposite forces in nature.

Question 3: In what is the action of the one force in nature expressed?

Question 4: The Theory of Everything is an approximate theory which states that you can connect all the physical theories known, into one all-encompassing theory.  Many scientists have tried to discover the Theory of Everything (TOE), without success.  One of them, the physicist Max Tedmark, explains in the next short clip, his findings on the subject.

If you want to be a little more impressed by the ideas of Tedmark, you are invited to view and enjoy the impressive visual illustration of the connection between numbers and patterns in nature, in this next video.

Read again the text of the lesson and write in your own words what the connection is between the comprehension of the one law that connects between all parts of creation and manages them, and the crisis that is discovered in our day, in all realms of life, and the solution offered for the crisis.
