Re: Human Cohesion (Everything 'is' Interconnected)
- I agree with what you are saying. The point seems to fall in line with a monistic interpretation on the unity of being. The story I
make up about that begins with the notion of 'interrelationship' between all the seemingly different aspects. I imagine there is a
protocol of sorts with primary and secondary relationships. However, I have no idea of how to explicate such an order. But pointing
back toward the sense of a 'oneness' and not a duality, I describe this as the 'interconnectedness of all things' and we should not
limited this cohesion merely to social interconnectedness, but to the world and to the farest reachs of time and space. We are the
progenitive effect of the continuum of 'the all' and I find it difficult to assume that this 'allness of being' is lacking the one trait I value as
a centerpiece in a human being; and that is 'intelligence'; the 'intelligence' functioning inside our humanness. I do not attribute
intelligence entirely to my own productivity, but as a reminder that 'all space, time, energy and mass' contribute to this being-possible.
Forget all about the religious concept called 'God', the universe is intelligent.

thought etc) malfunctioning or in the extreme, a shutting down of the entire system.

- Well JL, I'm glad one Existentialist among an otherwise predominately
athetistic forum is willing to say so. My point about 'forgeting' God
isn't really about forgeting God, but more about finding a langauge
suitable to atheistic marketplace, searching for some expression that
such a class of people might otherwise embrace. This is afterall a
Marxist and Sartrean Existentialist discussion group, drawing in more
sceptics than believers such as yourself.
My feeling is that 'the mind' is always on tour, guided by one 'meme'
( http://www.memecentral.com ) program or another. All intelligent
atheist have their ontologies, such logical voices that attempt to
deal with the fact of their own Being; and although it is not a
'religion' per se, they are memetically program and devoted to their

thing when that idea has you.' The later, whether atheistic, agnostic
or believer is a fanatic.
