Interconnected

Jan 20

I’ve had dreams and then seen things that pertain to them inexplicably manifest before me the next day or the following week. I’ve spoken about matters, and then had the same items referred to in conversation appear as time progresses. We live inside of a vast continuum that contains everything from quarks to galaxies; the universe is ancient-some fifteen billion years old, yet, despite the disparity of size or immensity of distance time and again it seems that the universe is a small place. Small, in that related events occur within a relatively short proximity and duration from one another. It would seem inconsequential. But these events, related yet strange to one another are the iterations that define the cosmos. That the universe is made of bodies in space is obvious, but many do not consider that the universe is also made of bodies that are in time as well (the two are the same). Time shapes the dimensions about us as surely as height, width and depth do. What is the shape that time gives us? What is the body that time delivers to the forms about us?

Perhaps it is the correlation of events about us, the sheer unlikeliness of various probabilities that converge and create everything: the surf pounding at the shore, a bird wheels overhead, children laugh and play. Seemingly separate events, entities and qualities are all conjoined by the time they share together.

We meet, we become friends, we become family and share our respective parts of the cosmos with each other-each of us a part that contains the whole.

It is the interconnectedness of all things, and everything from the depths of outer-space to the depths of our souls participates in this eternal moment, connected without cessation and ongoing creation…
