The Paradox of Fussy and Fuzzy
If you've come to this page, you are indeed, a seeker, for this topic is far beyond the scope of the ordinary. "Holes" and "What's Around the Holes?" What kind of a topic is this? And "spiritual?" How? These are the mysteries we will introduce in this brief journey, a first look at how holes can teach us about spirituality.
So what the heck have I attempted to show in the diagram above? Start with that it is a "visual fractal"; a way to use geometric shapes and color gradients to show the essence of some part of human nature. In this case, then, I have attempted to show the essence of the part of human nature we call "spirituality." And it's counter part, "materiality."
Taken together then, these two things comprise all of what we know, feel, can sense, and can possibly sense; the entirety of our world. Along with all the ways in which we can possibly express our experiences of these things. For instance, if you look a bit closer at what surrounds the circle, you'll notice I've positioned the two "S" words; Science and Spirituality; on the lower half of the circle. I've also positioned their counterparts, "fussy" and "fuzzy," on the upper half of this circle.
Form what I've drawn then, you can see that "Science" and "Fussy" are related, as are "Spirituality" and "Fuzzy." Simple? Perhaps. But much deeper and more important than any first glance could reveal.
Travel 90 degrees around the circle and you'll also notice two more positions; the highest position and the lowest position; "Higher Consciousness" and "Unconsciousness." Here, we see how our minds react to the two possible ways in which Science and Spirituality can combine. In one position, we feel the delight of emergence. In the other, we feel the experience of shock. Which is to say, the total absence of delight. Darkness. Boredom. Nothing of interest.
So what does all this have to do with learning about spirituality? Just one thing. That anyone seeking to learn about Spirituality must learn how it connects and overlaps with Materiality. And how there are two states in which we experience both as being more than the sum of the parts.
Want to see how this actually occurs? Then let's take a look.
