Magnum Opus

If the theory holds that the good guys have to get it right every time and the terrorists only once then there is an inverse truth in the fact that the terror they have to get only once brings out the best of the good guys for thousands upon thousands of times to come.

That terror may kill several thousand and send huge amounts of treasure up in smoke but, those whom they kill do not die in our hearts and minds nor do we critically need the treasure they have destroyed. In fact the memories of those people and things destroyed become amplified and redirected back into our society as a glorious blossoming of love and wellbeing – thoughtfulness and kinship that lasts and grows as our love, remembrance and commitment blooms, matures and is reseeded a thousand times over in our communal family.

Like the alchemist of old seeking the philosopher’s stone that would turn lead into gold those dismal, misbegotten terrorist acts call forth our “Humanity Stone” that shifts us into the domain of loving service to each other and focuses us on our community and its future with a commitment stronger and deeper than ever felt before. It is our Humanity Stone turning the lead of our temporal anguish and suffering into the gold of our spiritual growth, brotherly love and unselfish service to each other and our larger community.

As long as kindness remains, Community will thrive (our Magnum Opus); adversity: our Philosopher’s Stone.

Restoring Nothing’s Good Name

Tolstoy thinks that when the meaning of life devolves to nothing one should commence believing the lies about something.

The simple problem here is that “nothing” is a thing that we know nothing about. It is the stuff that exists when our ability to sense, and develop instruments to sense, fail to sense anything. “Nothing”, then, may be comprised of a single particle type OR of an entire new universe of particle types that form into ever larger globs of stuff we cannot sense and serve the final purpose of keeping everything we can sense from mashing together in one giant preter-post-primordial stew that has no edges – anywhere – ever!

Nothing may well consist exclusively of edges, surfaces and time.

The important thing to note here is that there is a great deal more nothing than there is everything else. nothing is the major component of everything. Nothing may be the fundamental element of life. We know little of it. Pay it no note. Gloss over it on the way to the various somethings. So it may well be the secret ingredient that, when studied and understood completely, answers all the unanswered questions we have asked.
