A couple of years ago, I took a deep dive into exploring some of the patterns in nature and ended up stepping away from Christian Science, the religion that I was raised in.
The only person that I knew who had traversed all that same terrain (both the philosophical explorations as well as the Christian Science upbringing) was Arthur Brock, so I reached out to him for a chat.
This hour plus conversation was the result. In it, we explore some of the insights that I had stumbled upon during that recent foray, as well as Christian Science, and the limits of western rationalistic science.
Arthur begins his reply and discusses reductive worldviews, platonic forms, membranes, flows, perception, coherence, identity, the downside of transparency, social collective intelligence.
Matt responds regarding entropy and perspective + abundance as the wrong goal
Art responds re: thermodynamics and order + and the overapplication of that metaphor
