Synapses are directed in their firing by a whole vision of collective thought. So our stories inquire into the relation of the individual to the collective. We are defined by collective stories of science, of tradition, of culture, of race, of creed, of family, of progress, of advancement. But who are we within those stories? There are often moments in which the relation of collective to individual turns around, and we see the world of things, of separation from the perspective of the collective thought of whole consequence that orders our lives coherently. Such moments have a distinctive feel.
The elements of choice that are the foundation to the network of connections cannot be reduced to any finite distinct identity but exist as packets of experience, that hold continuity through their living into other instances bringing order to their happening. It thus concerns an experience that unites mystery and form, wholeness and separateness, universal and local as a cell of occurrence in a composite lens through which to focus wholeness as actualised identity.
The logic of wholeness is illustrated in the network below. By clicking on the nodes you can access individual stories. The stories begin in openness as their significance but by making future connection come to realise their whole portent.
