PERSISTENT paradoxy seems to be our fate as human beings, almost our defining characteristic.
Compassionate and forgiving one moment, the next we are burdened with irreconcilable differences and conflicts.
Yet to experience any of these contrasting states (or that we interact at all) is made possible because we are connected.
We are fundamentally entwined with one another like a forest of giant redwoods that have intermingling root systems.
And beyond humanity, “everything in the Universe, throughout all its kingdoms, is conscious,” H. P. Blavatsky maintained in The Secret Doctrine (1:274).
Not just the greater kingdoms, but every entity in them “is endowed with a consciousness of its own kind, and on its own plane of perception.”
Scientists have even connected minerals, linking “two diamonds in a mysterious process called entanglement,” LiveScience senior writer Clara Moskowitz reports —”normally only seen on the quantum scale.”
“Thus, no speck of dust or grain of sand is without its own quality of consciousness,” insists Gertrude W. van Pelt in Hierarchies: The Ladder of Life, “though, of course, not as human beings understand the word. In this sense every atom is an entity,”
“Every composite being is composed of atoms,” she notes, “which obviously could not be used or respond to impulses if they were not themselves alive, having their own degree of consciousness.”
“If there were not this essential unity, there could be no coordination in nature, and any broken link would mean chaos.”
It has been found that the power of prescience lies ready to spring out from the core of even the simplest entities on earth, from atoms to molecules. Cells at disparate locations in our bodies, for example, will talk to one other. Trees are known to warn other trees of insect attacks over long distances.
