Beyond the intelligence of ignorance…

Fragmentation

                        is the scientists’ piecemeal 

way of ripping everything

a

     p

          a

               r

                    t

        to perhaps \mathbf{j} = \frac{-i\hbar}{2m}\left(\Psi^* \nabla \Psi - \Psi \nabla \Psi^*\right) = \frac\hbar m \mathrm{Im}(\Psi^*\nabla\Psi)=\mathrm{Re}(\Psi^* \frac{\hbar}{im} \nabla \Psi)one day understand everything.

The true wise man,however,abandons

                   chopping things up,abandons dissecting things

little by little.

The wise man clearly sees beyond the bits and segments

         because his consciousness is devoid of mere bits and segments.

That is why he timelessly understands the whole better

         than any sequential calculation wearing thick glasses.

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original mindfulness sayings and/or poetry that deals with mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped. I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy. To follow my unique Blog of "Nature Photos and Mindfulness Sayings" and for RSS feeds to my new posts, please access at: tom8pie.com (On my regular Blog posting pages, for additional information and to follow, simply click on the "tack icon" at the upper right corner... or, on my profile page, you can click on the "Thomas Peace" icon.) Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...

  1. How can I express my pleasure reading these words? As a naturalist/ethologist I am so tired of not being taken seriously because I accord nature sentience, and experience interconnection as reality as a result – While most scientists spend their lives stuck in the particulars – it never occurs to them to put Humpty Dumpty back to together again after he’s been split into fragments. Our education system fosters this insanity – oh don’t get me going

      • All I can say Tom is that we are on the same wave length – such a relief to meet like minded people Thank you!

  2. Therein lies my dilemma; as a scientist trying to see the whole!
    Loved your second photo that compliments your poem. 🙂

    • There, Sci, is a scientific way of functioning beyond the norm; it involves going beyond mere “trying.” You cannot just try to perceive the whole; if you do, you never really will. Holistically going beyond mere trying and effort may reflect real intelligence; then the whole will come to you. You won’t have to seek it.
      (Glad that you see the relationship of that 2nd photo to the poetry!) 🙂
      Years ago, i spent a good amount of time talking (one on one) and being friends with the famous physicist David Bohm; if you get a chance, read his book entitled “Wholeness and the Implicate Order.”
      Kiss LM and Mr. SL 4 us! Our little Gabbie just recently had a stroke; we are treating her and she is improving really well already.
