Blowing Boltzmann's Brains
What if, in the hypothetical context, we are all pieces of one big brain, the brain of the planet perhaps? And what if, in our travels through the Universe, we have finally entered a quadrant which enables information exchange to happen really fast, and for ideas and concepts of truth to propagate freely in an atmosphere of protection? Given that the Universe is only interested in information, it stands to reason that the seeds of concepts and ideas are exactly that - seeds - and what we make of the potential in those seeds determines where we go next. Boltzmann's Brain theory is detailed behind the image for those interested.
In a brain, synapsing information happens at super-light speeds, we have no comprehension of how to compute how the brain does the things it does at the speeds involved in the most basic movements, let alone the process of channelling information from the super-conductive network out there in the spacetime beyond the one we fondly know. As components of a brain, our job is simply to relay the right information at the right time so that all the other components of the Big Brain along with ours have access to the same information. Cross-referencing with language is currently the only method we reliably have to do this.
Acceptance has been the feature of the week for me. Nix has said it; Brian, Q, MaryAnne, Laura and Debbie have all used this word in the past handful of days. As a concept, acceptance is easy to identify, but harder to put into practice. The more evidence the Universe provides in pointing towards the importance of the word, the more practice is naturally involved in seeking to maintain a state which is, after all, positive. Synchronicity has a major hand to play in dealing us the right cards. Synchronicity will tell us when something is right, when a decision is true to track, when the light is on for you to go to. Generally speaking, synchronicity is a positive tool in looking for key information.
Key elements of life are the ones with which we cannot do without, and it doesn't need much questioning to conclude that love and energy are two of the most critical. Their polarities, fear and inertia, are therefore equally crucial, as symmetry demands in all quantum relationships. While symmetry demands polarity, the lock to which the keys fit have in themselves to be balanced, otherwise the key cannot turn and the door - that familiar metaphor we use so often in life - cannot open. In the solar system, we see balancing acts happening all the time, in holding planets together, maintaining orbits, and creating the ‘ballerina's skirt' pictured above - the plasma sheet of positive and negative electricity that ripples outward from the sun. Within ourselves, it seems to be difficult, but is it that difficult? There aren't many things that really matter in life, beyond the way in which we approach it.
The problem with quantum - if chosen to be seen as such - is that uncertainty pervades everything, causing an overlay of chaos from which order is a fleeting thing. If we are in tune with that, and it's really very okay to be so, we can take synchronicity as the flagship of our direction and uncertainty as the necessary element of randomness which makes everything work out in the end. When next a group of people randomly, separately and coincidentally say a key word that resonates with you, please share it. There's something to be said for blowing Boltzmann's brains if it means we all get to wake up in time to accept - and appreciate - the cosmic shift we appear to be in for.
