Is the universe one big organism?

Fictitious_Z (@ziggy) 9 years, 4 months ago

I did some digging and I came to a conclusion.This can be continued infinitly bigger and smaller.From the tiny cells in our body to the galaxies beyond.

Maybe just like the viruses in our body,we are the virus in the body of the universe.And if we don’t change our ways we’ll get extinct by the immune system of the universe.

Like the Dinosaurs? I wonder what they were doing that was harmful to the universe.

Sorry,bear with me.It’s pretty late here and I just had a cup of coffee.

Thoughts?

The universe is both infinitely big and infinitely small and everything is a reflection/fractal of everything else.

I could not agree more with this post. We are ALL part of one universal experience. I read a quote that calls this experience the “golden eternity”. Here is the rest of the quote which I believe may help you out…

“It’s all like a dream. Everything is ecstasy, inside. We just don’t know it because of our thinking-minds. But in our true blissful essence of mind is known that everything is alright forever and forever and forever. Close your eyes, let your hands and nerve-ends drop, stop breathing for 3 seconds, listen to the silence inside the illusion of the world, and you will remember the lesson you forgot, which was taught in immense milky way soft cloud innumerable worlds long ago and not even at all. It is all one vast awakened thing. I call it the golden eternity. It is perfect. We were never really born, we will never really die. It has nothing to do with the imaginary idea of a personal self, other selves, many selves everywhere: Self is only an idea, a mortal idea. That which passes into everything is one thing. It’s a dream already ended. There’s nothing to be afraid of and nothing to be glad about. I know this from staring at mountains months on end. They never show any expression, they are like empty space. Do you think the emptiness of space will ever crumble away? Mountains will crumble, but the emptiness of space, which is the one universal essence of mind, the vast awakenerhood, empty and awake, will never crumble away because it was never born.”

A black hole may be at the center of every galaxy and within those black holes may be another universe containing a number of black holes with universes contained within those. This universe is one of many, creating something infinitely larger, one that we are all apart of. We may never know what it is, but damn aren’t we lucky to be even apart of it.

The evolution of consciousness is directly linked to the spiral of the galaxy, the closer we get to a black hole the more spiritually we get closer to God.

@qwuakeup, Umm…? I am not sure what you are trying to say here.. Are you saying “god” sucks in matter, destroying all of it and spurting it out the other end into either abyss, trapping it within itself, or spurting it into another universe? And are you saying there are trillions of gods scattered across space and within each galaxy? Dude, if what you said was true, we’d all be fucked when we got the closest to god possible.

@ziggy, When we break everything down as far as possible, it is energy that still exists. It is my belief that everything is connected in some way; every cause has an effect and that everything is “alive” in some way, shape or form.

@blankey, I have also heard this theory and find it to be astonishing. And we already think we’re small in this universe…

Daniel (316) (@qwuakeup) 9 years, 4 months ago ago

@blankey, God doesn’t suck in anything, it’s actually us who is going closer towards God. When I say God I mean the spiritual perception of God as the infinite creator/source, all there is, existence etc

God isn’t destroying matter, matter and energy is just different sides of the same coin, and you are becoming mroe, you can say, “energetic”. The vibrations increase and we live in higher realms of vibration the closer we get to the black hole. The black hole is really only the destructive black hole to us, in the 3rd density (Density is the level of vibration, faster vibrator higher density)

@ziggy, “Like the Dinosaurs? I wonder what they were doing that was harmful to the universe.”

What evidence do you have that the universe is sentient? I’d argue that the dinosaurs died because of chance and their inability to quickly adapt.

Eric (1,819)M (@blankey) 9 years, 4 months ago ago

@qwuakeup, Well I thought you were saying the closer to a black hole we are, the closer we get to god, so I suppose you are saying god is a black hole? (wtf? lol) But ignoring that, and moving onto what apparently you meant, that god is the highest vibration and black holes increase our vibrations. Show me your evidence for this, that black holes “increase our vibrations”.
Also, if you have any understanding of “god”, you don’t need to be in any certain part of the universe, you are it, it is now, and this is all it ever will be.

More like one big orgasm. That’s why they call it the big bang.

I had posted somewhere in someone’s discussion a very similar notion that, because of the effect we tend to have on the earth compared to the equilibrium that it has with just the natural environment, that we are like a cancerous growth consuming resources and advancing the sophistication of our destruction.

It is interesting to imagine, but it begs the question: if we are cancer to the world, why are we here?

@lytning91, I don’t really think anything can be a “cancer” if you’re looking at it from a universal scale, sure we may have fucked up nature on this earth, but it’s nothing compared to the universe. It’s all about perspective really, who decides what is good and what is bad in this universe.

Everything has it’s uprising though. If there is an absoluteness to the universe that we are just too underdeveloped to see, then what happens if we evolve to the point of seeing the end of the line and continue the consumption we have now. I suppose it gets a little unlikely but we are trying to spread ourselves onto other parts of the world and, unless we cure ourselves, we’ll continue to (it seems) negatively effect the world around us.

@blankey, Oneness with pure consciousness is physically manifested as the spiral arms going towards the centre of the super massive black hole.

Everything is God, but God is just playing games here. Yes we are God, but God has forgotten its God, God still has all its powers but no longer know how to use it, completely forgetting that it’s God, and that what we are.

We can say that it is a big organism in the way that its changing and adapting. The big bang never stopped, we are the continuation of the big bang through every action , we are experiencing and living with the flowing and perpetual movements of the big bang.

I had some similar thoughts almost a year ago:

The Universe is One Massive Single Cell Organism

@ziggy, I only glanced at your post at first, but looking closely, I have to ask. Why do you compare humans to viruses? Looking at the Earth as a whole, humans seem to function more like the Leukocytes (or White Blood Cells). And Dinosaurs didn’t go extinct because they were evil or destructive to the world. They went extinct because the world changed and they didn’t.
I don’t want to put words in your mouth, but it really bothers me when humans assume that humans are some kind of plague on the universe. Humans are no different in behavior than lions or zebras or kangaroos. Everyone living being in the universe, from bacteria to galaxies (see my above discussion) are all trying to survive, sometimes at the expense of those around them. There’s nothing morally wrong about this. It’s just the way of the universe.

Absolutely. I started thinking about this idea after hearing Alan Watt’s “Conversation with Myself,” where he notes how where there are no flowers there are no bees, and where there are no bees there are no flowers. They’re really one organism. Interdependent. This idea of course can be expanded infinitely to include anything and everything. And when one learns to think of everything on the planet as parts to a whole rather than separate, external forms, one can truly begin to comprehend the beauty and bliss of it all. We are nature, so when we disconnect ourselves from nature, we disconnect ourselves from each other.

I feel that we are living in a holographic illusion and as a hologram repeats itself in both big and small infinitely, we are one with everything and thus affect each other.

Here is a short video talking about this illusion:

The universe IS one big organism. it grows from the new. each one of us is simple a cell intended to gather new data, experiences, and knowledge for the greater whole…….but, shhhhh, the universe is not aware of this.

@ziggy, Yup, one big orgasm.

@qwuakeup, You should also check out how mycelium grows in the same way, and the internet too!

@lytning91, and I was going to mention the cancer thing as well, but then rolled back up and see you already covered that, so I will simply agree. Glad you think we are a disease too :D

Oh orgasms :)

Carina (99) (@misssunbeam) 9 years, 3 months ago ago

@thelaughingfool, “Humans are no different in behavior than lions or zebras or kangaroos.” We are because we’re able to manipulate matter using our very different brains and opposable thumbs. We are also self-destructive in ways that lions or zebras or kangaroos could not be. Have you ever seen a zebra bungee jump for a quick adrenaline rush? A lion in a race car? A kangaroo flying a fighter jet? Oh wait, I just had a brilliant idea for a children’s cartoon…

@misssunbeam, Oh LAWDY, lawdy!

Did you really just say “Yep, one big orgasm” ???

I hope so, because it made me laugh a considerable amount.

On the real, though, the concept of humans as cancer is astoundingly honest when you think about the fine details.
