Our Polarity view

10 March 2014, 12:16

As human beings we have an unfortunate tendency to get stuck in a polarity view of the world. We like to view things and each other as absolutes.  Black and white. Good or bad. Male and female. Us and them.

We seem to be driven by a need to isolate ourselves from the rest of humanity in any way we can find. To look for the differences between ourselves and another person and align ourselves accordingly with or against them, and It is this tendency that is responsible for everything that ails our society: war, greed, poverty - everything that is preventing us from living the way we should be living.

This same polarity view of the world is responsible for the classical stand-off that we see between science and religion, or, more accurately, between science and metaphysics - religion is just another example of a polarity view within metaphysics.

And yet it hasn't always been the case. Science and metaphysics were once united in Alchemy, in which chemistry has its roots. However this came to an end due to the domination of left-brained, logical thought, which was unable to grasp the right-brained, experiential concepts behind the subject matter at hand. The result: a polarity view of life and the world around us and a refusal by some to see anything beyond the physical.

Few people in recent history have been able to reconcile these views, but we can take heart from those who could when we view their work.

One such example is Leonardo da Vinci, one of the greatest artists of all time who was also seen as a scientist who was way before his time. And perhaps one of the reasons we find his artwork so great is because he brought his knowledge of human anatomy into it.

Another example is Nikola Tesla. Who? Google him. Here was a man who brought his knowledge of metaphysics to science with incredible success. His metaphysical knowledge gave him the understanding of the ways that energy moves and the patterns in which it naturally flows and led to his  invention of wireless power as well as zero point energy. It helped him to find ways to tap into energy harmoniously instead of destructively. The reason he is virtually unknown is because his experiments were shut down by people with polarity viewpoints. People with personal interests in copper and oil who saw those interests under threat. People who would suppress a technology with so many benefits to humanity and the environment because of greed and a lust for power.

It is people like da Vinci and Tesla who have shown us the enormous potential of combining left-brained technology with right brained knowledge. If science would only follow in the footsteps of people such as these we would see incredible advances in a short space of time.

And if we, in our day to day lives, can lose our own polarity view on the world we could be united as one human race and get on with actually living our lives to the best of our potential.

Idealistic? Maybe. Optimistic? Definitely. For the time will come when the majority of people will adopt this standpoint. There is already a worldwide movement of people who are beginning to see the benefits of this way of thinking. People who place more importance on the all rather than the one. We can only hope that it reaches a critical mass before we launch ourselves and our planet into oblivion.
