Swarms, that is too say large groups of individuals acting in synergy with each other, fascinate us. Each individual in the swarm moves in a mathematically predictable way ( the math ) yet to watch a flight of birds leap up into the sky, wheel about in a seemingly random way and then light once more, is like watching a liquid ballet. What should be chaotic, instead becomes elegant and serenely surreal. It happens exactly the same, over and over again, no matter the species.

Take birds. From the moment of alarm when the panic of a few individuals explodes through the swarm and triggers the group’s flight, to the seemingly mindless swooping and circling, to the moment when, at least, one individual deems that the threat has passed, that all this flying about is wasting a lot of energy and settles once more, bringing the group with it, the roles of each individual in the group seems random, but is in fact preordained by the synergy of the group.

You are human. What do you care of swarm minds? Are we not all fiercely independent individuals, free to do as we will? Well. Yes and No. Your free will sets your own course and takes you where you please. But many of your decisions are dependent on the proximity and number of individuals around you.

Sometime after World War II when we stopped annihilating ourselves on a massive scale, the population of the planet exploded. Somewhere between then and now, the density of individual humans hit a watershed number. We stepped from a group of gregarious individuals to swarm and did not notice.

We are a swarm in flight. Watch where the human hive mind puts its attention. The alarm of a few sets off the whole human swarm into an adrenaline soaked mind fizz. The focused serenity of just one individual can calm the fizz and help us settle. We consume media events like hungry birds descending on a corn field, gobbling stuff down without thought to the content or the process. We can pick out a single individual from our group and either idolize him or destroy him with our attention, seemingly at random, but with a preordained and mathematical regularity. One is reminded of lemmings headed for a cliff.

How do you control something so massive and seemingly out of control? Actually, it is relatively easy. All it takes is one individual who is self aware, connected to the OnePattern, groks the mathematical language of the swarm mind and is willing to reach out and hold the totality of humanity in its heart.

It is around this being that the swarm will pivot and turn. It is this person that anchors the swarm mind to the OnePattern, no matter how fizzed the communal mind might become. All swarms have an anchor. Think of it as the zero point of the mathematical equation of life.

brain size as a function of population

ah. yet another left brain article about the synergy of the hive mind and its effects on brain function

we do not have to wait around 10,000 years for a significant evolutionary transformation to express itself. The trigger may already be there, lying dormant in our genes, waiting for the the right time and place to express itself.

the above is the best description by a diamond faceted left brain of how the human hive mind seems to function

Read Full Post »

There is a Catch-22 embedded in the code of the Onepattern, an emergency override button hardwired into the order of the Oneverse, a cheat code that has stacked the deck in the favor of the code writer who wrote the program for Earth School. It is an insurance policy that ensures that Life always wins, even if the forces of Chaos subvert the system and Shadow consumes the Light.

So, as much as the human race longs for oblivion right now, as much as nihilism consumes the hive mind at the current time, as much as the diamond faceted left brain thinkers who currently control the planetary discourse insist that nothing exists except what can be perceived by the senses and measured by current technologies, there are things bigger than Human and older than the stars who have a vested interest in this place and the outcome of the struggle in the lower levels of creation.

There are two things that you need to understand:

Here, in Earth School, you are given the illusion of free will, but trust that your free will gives you free rein only so far. The human race is not unlike a two year old. The mother will back off when the child says “I can do it myself” and she will help only when the child says “Help me” when it comes to the small things, the minor details of life, but when it comes to the big things, the important things, like crossing a busy street or playing with matches, the Mother will reach out a hand and steer things into a safety zone. The wise child learns the lesson the first time, because the mother is just ruthlessly compassionate enough to let you singe your fingers, if that is what it takes.

And …

Human is only one face of the multifaceted visage of the Onemother. You are not alone on this planet, nor are you any more important than any other embodiment of Her being. Do not make her choose. You will lose. The Onemother may love you, but it is a tough love for those who are too hard headed to listen when she talks or learn what she is teaching.

So as much as you may protest about being able to do it yourself, as much as you may deny her existence and despise her interference, the Oneverse knows better, and in some things, you have no choice but the Onechoice. It is the only path she has left open for you. All other paths are blocked.

Blessed be the Divine Paradox and the Loving Heart the Divine Mother.

Take this test to find out.

If you are either left brain or right brain, you tend to use that hemisphere the most, all the time. Tests like this are simplistic road maps to telling you where you stand in that respect.

If you are ambidextrous when it comes to brain function, like me, then the questions will seem ambiguous. Taking this test will yield a half and half result with a 15% margin of error plus or minus.

Being left brained or right brained is not necessarily gender specific, but it is easier for men to be left brained and women to be right brained, since all the other gender traits reinforce hemisphere dominance. Between the onset of puberty and the onset of menopause (both male and female), the brain is locked in a hormonal straight jacket that can overwrite the natural brain function tendencies. (which is why, historically, members of the community over the age of 56 are considered wise. It is not so much wisdom from experience, which is indeed true, but more the wisdom inherent in every human who is not locked in the cycle of reproduction and continuation of the species.)

After the hormones fade, the diamond faceted left brain thinkers begin to temper their thinking with the soft amorphous thinking of the right brain and conversely,  the deep dark pools of the right brain thinkers loose the warm fuzzy thinking and develop a more hard edged approach to problem solving. Not every old person is wise. Wisdom, it seems, comes not from the brain itself, but from the ability to open up the pathway between the two sides of the brain and use them together, as a holistic unit.

The hive mind of the human species requires every aspect of human functionality to maintain the hive health. That we idolize the brilliant diamond faceted left brain and denigrate that of the right is symptom of our dystopia. The sharp edged left brain is but a tool, a sword wielded by the synergy of the whole. To grant it too much power is to say that the sword wields the warrior and not the other way around.

If you are left brained you are the sword, so be humble. You exist at the sufferance of the hive mind and your duty is to serve.

If you are right brained you are the well from which the hive mind draws its life sustaining water. Do not abuse those who come to drink and try not to muddy the waters.

For the rest, the old and wise or the ambidextrous, we are the glue that holds it all together and the sign posts along the path that point everyone in the right direction. We are invisible until you need us and then we are there, under your noses, when you come seeking us. Be kind. Walk softly. Listen around the words to what lies beneath. It is the Oneverse and she has much to say.

If, perchance, one day, you decide to let another being into your life in the form of a child, know this: in the place just beyond the veil you will create a contract with the being who will step into your life to become your child. you choose the child who will push you outside of your comfort zone and the child chooses you that it might teach you by example what it is to be unbound and unconstrained by the shadows and demons you carry about in your mind.

If you are paying attention, the child need only live as an example. If you refuse to believe that your child is your best teacher, then the child will make sure you learn the contracted lesson in other ways.

For example: If you are afraid, if fear governs all the decisions you make, then perhaps one of your children will embody what it is to be fearless. If you grok the lesson, then the contract is fulfilled and the child will move on to its primary contracts (that which it holds with the Oneverse). If you cling to your fear, if you insist on wrapping this child in your coddling blanket of fear, it will do extreme things, such as leaping off cliffs into the bottomless and unknowable abyss. You will have learned your lesson if you can let your love rule your heart, overcome your fear and force yourself to leap off after him, risking everything, including death, to keep this child in your heart.

or perhaps your problem is that you believe in nothing. Poor you. you will have a child who not only believes in fairies and dragons and magic, she will embody the very essence of magic. the more you try to repress her nature the more she will sing and dance and play, every word, every motion, a celebration of the magic that flows thru her body. If you cannot grok her lesson, then she will be lost to you as she creates a language of magic to express what is inexpressibly. You must learn this language if you wish her to let you into her heart.

the ultimate tragedy is a parent who chooses the comfort of their familiar life over the act of loving and being loved by a child who was put into your life to lead you out of the shadowlands.
