The concept of evolution has been with us for quite some time, thanks to the ideas formulated by Charles Darwin after visiting the Galapagos Islands and observing the different types of finches on the various islands. Although I find this example of evolution very interesting, I am really more interested in the evolution of thought that has been occurring over the last couple thousand years among the human race. Back in the medieval ages, humans looked to the church for all impossible questions. The heads of church had an answer for everything so people didn’t question their existence on earth. Eventually, around the time of Martin Luther, people began to see the corruption among the church heads and realized that not all things can be answered by religious leaders.
This led to a new age of science, where the general public pushed scientists to use the scientific method, and go about figuring out the different aspects of our world through experimentation. While our scientists have been trying to figure out our world, the rest of us have been working over the last few hundred years to make our time on this earth more comfortable. We have worked to advance our technology and create a better life for ourselves. We are now reaching a point in the line of human development where we have created enough advanced technology to allow for people to live relatively comfortably without having to slave away at work (but many have chosen to go into debt, purchasing more and more stuff which does push you right back into that type of consumer slavery). More and more people are figuring out ways to make a living without having to spend 40, 50, or even 60 hours a week working a job, but instead by performing a part-time, well paying job.
I myself have gotten to the point where I don’t necessarily have to work a full week and this has given me a lot more time to ponder questions that I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to think about if I were busy with a full time job. It has given me time to read more, to spend more time with friends conversing, and just generally more time to think about why I am here on this earth. I believe that as more and more people begin to explore the deeper questions in life, we will find answers to some of these questions and our way of life may very well change drastically. Some people look at 2012 as a potential time of apocalypse, but what if it represents something different?
What if instead, we are building up to a new consciousness. A new way of life that is unfathomable to us at this point. I think a lot about quantum mechanics and the search for the smallest particles. We have developed microscopes to see particles of matter never known to exist before. But you can continue to ask the same question as smaller particles are discovered: Well what is that particle made out of? So where does this end, what is the smallest particle (and what is that made out of). Albert Einstein made waves with his equation E=MC2. This equation basically states that everything is energy vibrating in a certain way as to appear solid. So if everything is energy, including us, what exactly is our world? What are our thoughts?
If everything is energy, it seems to me that we as a human race should be able to reach a certain point of vibration where the world we currently perceive as separate from us, as an external environment, may actually begin to appear as a part of us. Everything around us being energy, the same energy that we are, all flowing back and forth to create one “being” or one “organism”. What if our whole evolution has been leading to this point, where we reach a certain vibration and are able to rejoin the cosmos, rejoin the universe as one single being. I know this is extremely hard to fathom but doesn’t it seem possible, if everything is just energy?
