The Universal Urge to Unite

If there were no real propensity to unite, even at a prodigiously rudimentary level, indeed, in the molecule itself , it would be impossible for love to appear higher up in the ' hominized 'or human form - Teilhard de Chardin

The illustration above shows two young galaxies in the process of merging. The merger has triggered a prodigious burst of star formation and is providing fuel for the growth of the galaxies' central super massive black holes. Credit: X-ray: NASA/CXC/IoA/D.

It is Teilhard de Chardin who clearly reveals this urge to unite as a fundamental law of nature.

Where Einstein was concerned with the without of things, like space, Teilhard de Chardin was was concerned with the within of things. Teilhard used the term 'within' to denote the psychic face or consciousness of matter ~ since the beginning of time ~ which reveals itself in its innate urge to unite.

Teilhard defines this innate urge to unite as an energy force in his famous Law Of Complexity - Consciousness. The law states two principles:

  1. Throughout all time there has been an evolutionary tendency for all matter to unite and become increasingly complex in nature.
  2. With each increase in material complexity, there is a related rise in the consciousness of matter and an even greater urge to unite.

Teilhard divided this fundamental energy into two distinct components ~ a Tangential energy which linked the element with all others of the same order and a Radial energy which represented the innate urge toward union and greater complexity as well as a leap in consciousness.

The pictured galaxies uniting is a wonderful example of Teilhard's Law of Complexity-Consciousness ~ for in that union they have spawned a remarkable burst of star formation and complexity as well as a rise in consciousness.

It is this Radial energy in matter, this deep urge towards union and completion, which eventually manifests itself as LOVE.

As such, Teilhard's Radial energy is one in the same with what I call a state of Soul Consciousness and The Unified Field. A state of love and consciousness that exists not only beyond time and space but also deepest within ourselves ~ as well as beneath our deepest fears. The principle property of this Unified Field is the urge to unite.

If we compare this with Darwin's evolutionary theory, Darwin's only error was to substitute matter for spirit as the motivating force of the Universe.

For it becomes increasingly clear, in light of this innate urge to unite, that man is the product of an evolution of love.
From the pre-atomic stage in the depths of the primordial sea to his present ' hominized ' state ~ man is the product of a seemingly endless evolution within a loving plan of plurality, union and a resultant energy transformation into something more complex, more conscious and more loving.

Nowhere is this more evident than in our own creation as human beings.
In the August 1990 issue of Life Magazine, Linnart Nilsson created a sensation with the first photographs of how life begins.

From conception through life's earliest hours and days, these pictures are dramatic proof, like the Galaxies uniting, of our innate urge to unite and of Teilhard's Law of Complexity-Consciousness.

Nillson clearly shows in his incredible photographs , a remarkable sequence of events:

Sperm and EggShortly after the head of the sperm has entered the ovum, we see two small bubbles filled with chromosomes floating around ~ one from the man and one from the woman.

Drawn inexorably toward each other ~ these nuclei begin to unite . The result of this union is a highly complex nucleus that contains the entire blueprint for a human being.

About 12 hours later, the cell splits into two and then splits again and again until it becomes more than 100 cells ( a Blastocyst ) and even more complex and conscious. The it begins its journey through the fallopian tube towards the uterus where it will unite to attach itself to the uterine wall and signal the woman ( from a place of greater complexity and consciousness ) that she is pregnant.

Human Egg By the third trimester, we have reached such a degree of complexity-consciousness that we have entered a joyful and conscious state of soul consciousness and are ready to be born.

FetusOur task on this planet is to surrender to this same universal urge to unite and play our part in the great coming together of mankind ~ and it begins with each one of us surrendering to love, social cooperation and altruism versus hatred, separation and greed.

David Filkin writes in STEPHEN HAWKING'S UNIVERSE:

"There needs to be , therefore, a quantum theory of gravity which links the way we understand gravity in General Relativity with the ideas of wave-particle duality and the Uncertainty Principle at the heart of quantum mechanics . This would, in effect be the" theory of everything " which the string theorists have been looking for ....... Hawking had to find a way for gravity to be subject to quantum laws; and no one has yet come up with a satisfactory quantum theory of gravity ... or a theory of everything to unite gravity and quantum mechanics."

In my Unified Field of love and soul consciousness ~ whose principle property is the universal urge to unite ~ gravity is a condition of state and subject to the same urge to unite that exists within the quantum world of atoms and molecules.

Thus Gravity and Quantum physics are united by the universal urge to unite which exists between galaxies as well as atoms and molecules ~ and even light is subject to its awesome psychic force.

Many are called, few listen and fewer still respond to this innate call to service, unity and social cooperation but those who do,like Martin Luther King Jr, Mother Teresa, Ghandi, Nelson Mandela,Teilhard and many others, resonate with the same deep altruistic chords within ourselves and inspire us to service.

The call to unite is, in essence, the call to service. We can not deny it for much longer ~ the future of our species is at stake. WE CANNOT ESCAPE OUR DESTINY AND IT IS DIVINE.
