From the foundational relativity of space and time woven together by light into its invariant fabric, and the equivalence of energy and matter also mediated by the speed of light, the reality of the physical world is innately relational. Instead of its apparent separation, leading edge science at all scales of existence and across numerous fields of research is not only revealing that our Universe is fundamentally inter-connected but that its appearance arises from non-physical realms of causation and ultimate Unity.
Increasingly compelling evidence shows that digitized information, the basis of our communications technologies, also underpins and makes up all physical reality. The 1s and 0s of this simplest and universal ‘alphabet’ themselves relate as meaningful, not random, instructions that literally ‘in-form’ the laws of physics and manifested relationships throughout the Universe.
The embodied relationships of this emergent infodynamic and holo/fractal model of our Universe, where the whole is present in the smallest pixelation and every part contributes to the whole are being discovered at all scales of existence and across numerous fields of research. From its beginning 13.8 billion years ago, not in the implied chaos of the big bang but as an exquisitely ordered flow of a continuing Big Breath, our Universe exists and evolves as a great thought rather than a great thing. Each of us is a co-creative microcosm of our Universe’s innate and evolutionary intelligence—and with every thought, emotion, word and action, we contribute to the co-creation of the whole world. As a species, the universal impulse to evolve is now inviting us, rather than to continue to play out the ‘illusion’ of separation, to understand, experience and embody the awareness of such unity expressed through diversity—to enter into the adventure of an ever-expanding and evolutionary relationship with the entire Cosmos.
