Who Do We Become?
We reach out to the stars with radio waves, to form relationships with complex beings like ourselves, hoping other outer-space entities will have solutions to our problems.
We expect that to change, to be successful, requires a complex set of behaviors, but let’s look at the facts.
Following are closed-space models, chemical formulas, close approximations of how opiates actually look. A scientific evolutionary theory exists that as mammals and plants evolved together, they became dependent on one another, for fertilization (plants from mammals) and pleasure (mammals from plants).
Compared to our own bodies that consist in tightly interactive and complex organ systems, these chemicals are quite simple, yet when we form relationships with them, we become someone else, perhaps someone unrecognizable to the person we were before taking the drugs.
According to our theory of what makes up reality, we believe that it is in relationship that awareness exists. So before we took the drug, we were in relationship with another batch of chemicals that affected us in either pleasurable or unpleasurable ways.
Our attitudes toward our life experiences shape our beliefs and those beliefs shape or filter out our expectations for statistical probabilities.
Our beliefs and the filters they create for what to expect from the WHAT IS BEHIND WHAT IS may inhabit the world of the improbable. Sadly, the scientifically WHAT IS (or what is most probable) does not necessarily jive with the WHAT IS of our expectations.
Then why do spiritualists, those who do not believe in the scientifically probable world (what we call the objective world), stick to their beliefs? Perhaps for the same reasons that addicts stick to their drugs. It’s the way we’re made. We go with what works, at least in the short term.
What works? How can we say that believing in something unscientific (improbable) works? Simple, because it does. When people have expectations of certain outcomes, they come to the universe with filters. And those filters help them see what they expect to see.
So, how can what one expects to see come into being when it isn’t scientific? When it’s so improbable. How can spiritual believers (who expect the improbable or unscientific or subjective outcomes) be as satisfied as those who expect outcomes that have one hundred percent chance of existing (mostly scientific or objective outcomes)?
That’s what this website, The Union Of Opposites, is about—how each of us creates our own reality from that nebulous cloud of potential relationship outcomes that well up from the implicit order of WHAT IS BEHIND WHAT IS (see David Bohm). Quite literally—how do statistics work?
