8. THE LAWS of BECAUSE
Imagine this: that the subjective, yet verifiably real, experiential, six-dimensional part of the universe—consciousness—reacts with objective spacetime events, and does so according to the interplay of four agencies: Karma Chaos Will and Grace.
Why is my life what it is right now? Karma, Chaos, Will and Grace.
On the non-personal end are Karma and Chaos.
Karma is analogous to Newton’s Third Law of motion in spacetime. Action produces equal pushback. That which you reap, that shall you also sow. Karma.
Chaos comes from the idea of the extreme sensitivity to initial conditions involved when energies converge, both physical and psychic—moving objects, heat, sound, hormonal reactions, radioactive decay, as well as your limp and the insecurities you feel because you limp.
Chaos is the force of ensuance. Everything comes to this point in space and time, and whatever ensues comes as a result of the chaos of the moment. Chaos suggests that, regardless what kind of life you lead, what kind of person you are, regardless what your lifestyle predicts to be your future, often the unforeseen happens. There is tragedy and there is seemingly undeserved benefit. (Although, the agency of Karma is subtle and deep, and explanations for outcomes may require looking more deeply into the past, where antecedents may yet be found.)
At the other end of the consciousness spectrum, the personal end, the ego component to consciousness joins the interplay by exhibiting Will and Grace.
Will is the “I want that. I plan to get it. I overcome obstacles. I get it” of consciousness. Will projects, analyzes, plans, acts in its own perceived interest. Will is the direction of the ego. It is wish fulfillment, acting on desires, moving intentionally toward some imagined future. Will is expression.
Grace is Will’s opposite. Grace is bent on remaining present in the moment. It is gentle in nature. Grace is realized most deeply in a meditative state. Grace results from tuning in to the universe, it is the intention to merge.
Will and Grace are like Yang and Yin. Will creates Karma, and Grace goes with the Chaotic flow. We are alive.
