I find that it stands for me to believe that we as humans start at the same point as "time" itself. Like "time," we exist with some kind of system that we all remain laced to. From this point of origin came some form of matter, matter coming from some kind of energy, and this energy defined by ungraspable laws. Though I feel we will never fully know or understand these laws, I do believe that, like us, they are bound to one another. From time to time we might catch a glimpse of the this

All manifesting out of our embedded ability, to see pattern. Is it possible that this vision for patterning exists as a reflection of systematic origin, an embedded reflection of the circumstances and patterned systems that created us, and that we now investigate? In organizing our assessments of the universe, places of overlap are discovered. Overlaps reveal foundations, and these common foundations justify our ability to communicate with each other and the world around us. They open the doors for comparison and empathy, not just with other humans but all existence. Following the principals that we have learned from observing our universe backwards through time, at some point everything collides as a supercontinent of fundamental universal matter and energy. This material ultimately being a foundation for understanding, or the "Ground" on which communicative understanding is built. To me, it is the basis for the re-melding of ideas, compromise and change. In its essence it reveals that our effort directed at compromise or understanding one another, isn't a process of changing the many components of our individual existences, but instead is one focused on finding a way to put the pieces back together. To me this acknowledging and striving for an unseen center, a coalescing point, is the beginning of criticality. It's the point where we begin to truly see [...]
