Traversing Through Chaos to Innovation

In my last post I asked the question:

“𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙞𝙛 𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙘𝙧𝙞𝙨𝙞𝙨 𝙞𝙨 𝙖 𝙗𝙞𝙧𝙩𝙝?”

If you thought the question was “naive” it’s understandable, given that our mainstream scientific thinking is still based on the divisive world view that there exists no organising force in the universe other than chance.

Modern science basically grants us free will and then places us in a world of merciless competition in which only the lucky or strong can survive.

This causes human beings to distrust life itself and adopt the old 𝘥𝘰𝘨-𝘦𝘢𝘵-𝘥𝘰𝘨 survival strategy.

But a new quantum biology is indeed in the process of forming at the frontiers of modern science and it holds many fascinating possibilities;

It tells us that the brain of the cells of our body are located within the c̳e̳l̳l̳u̳l̳a̳r̳ ̳m̳e̳m̳b̳r̳a̳n̳e̳, which in turn, provides an interface with the environment.

In a nutshell this means that life is designed to be ᴄᴏᴏᴘᴇʀᴀᴛɪᴠᴇ ʀᴀᴛʜᴇʀ ᴛʜᴀɴ ᴄᴏᴍᴘᴇᴛɪᴛɪᴠᴇ.

This new biological view makes enormous sense when considered alongside quantum physics, which holds that all of life is interrelated and holistic rather than separate.

In the old view, we humans are the victims of our selfish genes;

In the new view there are no victims, only a huge interconnected and interdependent cosmos.

Ultimately, in order to evolve, human beings must embrace chaos rather than try to protect against it;

We must adapt and innovate.

Just think about nature.

It adapts and constantly needs to expand and experiment.

To continue expanding and experimenting, you simply can’t let yourself get freaked out by chaos;

Understanding that the very nature of innovation is to take the risk to keep on failing until it succeeds.

So if you don’t embrace chaos, you will have a very difficult time innovating.

Incredibly, when you trust in chaos and allow your environment to mutate you, rather than trying to control it and stay the same, the greatest magic is revealed to you — that in chaos there is and always has been a 𝑣𝑎𝑠𝑡 𝑢𝑛𝑑𝑒𝑟𝑙𝑦𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑡𝑟𝑎𝑛𝑠𝑓𝑜𝑟𝑚𝑎𝑡𝑖𝑣𝑒 𝑜𝑟𝑑𝑒𝑟.

As the transmutation of the shadow of chaos inevitably holds the secret to our future as a species.

All one has to do is look back at our own evolution to see where it must inevitably lead. Life is designed to transcend its own initial programming (the source of the difficulty we experience at the beginning of the process) and discover new and higher forms of consciousness.

By way of example, millions of years ago, single-celled consciousness made a quantum leap into multi-celled consciousness, which means that our DNA must have either mutated or adjusted itself in order for the cell to be assimilated into a greater organism.

What if, through the gift of Innovation, humanity must now improvise in order to survive the coming centuries and just like those early single-celled organisms, mutate to become a complex multi-cellular organism?

Because if life truly were that selfish, it would never have made it off the starting block and it is highly unlikely that any two cells could ever cooperate, since their very design would drive them to compete.

Innovation implies cooperation by its very nature.

In order to mutate life to a higher order, you must integrate and synthesise;

Unity = Efficiency.

This is the sacred secret: life is designed to keep innovating, the old human with it’s single-celled, siloed, island mentality has had its day.

The only way to get there is by coordination, by working in harmony.

Life can’t be stopped.

It will stop short of nothing but God.

The secret of innovation is coherence.

You have to create a pocket of coherence amidst the chaos, when you do that, then you bring order to the chaos, and the more coherence you create, the more organised the cosmos becomes.

The order already exists, enfolded within the chaos.
And innovation is the unfolding mechanism, it’s all following a pattern and timing.

So bring your awareness over and over to the oak tree.

Like the oak tree, you’ll naturally start innovating as your energy transforms the raw material of the shadow state to a higher level of coherence.

And innovation feels so good! It feels delightful, especially when it’s put in service to a high ideal. So use the tremendous creative energy of this and pour it into your ideal;

Be the valiant warrior that willingly goes into chaos and discomfort;
Take heart because the difficulty is only in the beginning;
And then trust that everything becomes easier.
