Holons and Holarchy
According to Ken Wilber, there are no fundamental indivisible
particles and there are only compositions, embedded within
compositions. Everything is both a whole and also a part of a bigger
whole. He calls a part, a Holon, which means composition. A Holon is
part of a bigger Holon and within itself there are holons which are
its parts. He calls the entire system-the Universe the Holarchy do not
know whether the Standard Model is just constructed for convenience or
one which has been discovered with the latest the Higg's boson being
the completion, the trial now shifting towards the graviton.
If we agree that there are compositions within compositions only with
no ultimate indivisible particle, then we are talking about the ever
evolving entities of non-matter or non-material. Can we call them the
entities of consciousness? Is evolution the evolution of entities of
consciousness? Within your body there are trillions of organisms
toiling continuously to make every cell in your body, perform the task
assigned to it by the DNA.There are DNAs of their own in the bacteria.
A gigantic cooperation and coordination among the trillions of DNAs
must be happening. When there are only Holons or systems, then the
entire activity must be the flow of consciousness.
Is evolution the continuous change of consciousness -coordinated
consciousness among conscious entities? Suppose you go into the deep
space, bound within your spaceship. Then what will happen to the
bacteria in you-trillions of them and your own flow of consciousness
which we call life. Your conceptual bases of understanding change as
you are no longer governed by the concepts that evolved when you were
on earth.My curiosity is whether evolution ultimately boils down to
the continuous change of consciousness only?
Under those circumstances can you ignore your consciousness in the
name of unbiased observation? Observation and perception are actually
your own flow of consciousness. You are a Holon with Holons within you
and you are also a part of the bigger Holon-Earth. Is consciousness
the basis of mutations also? Is a mutation the result of a change in
consciousness? Then can you will a mutation? How is the grand flow of
diverse Holon's consciousness coordinated in the evolution? How our
consciousness is subsumed in the general consciousness?
