A different take on the creation or evolution debate, unpacking how both can fit in according to spiritual principles.
The creation vs. evolution debate has been going forever – and with good reason: a definitive answer to the question would presuppose the answers to where we come from and what life on earth means. It would answer a lot of questions.
Creation Or Evolution?
In a word, the answer is creation. Earth was created…. but not quite in the way that you think.
Have you ever had one of those dreams that was so real that it actually took you a few minutes or hours to regain your equilibrium and figure out which reality you are in again? Most commonly, society speaks of those dreams in which your partner does something that feels so real that you are mad at them in real life.
In Its Simplest Essence, Life Is Like That Dream.
It’s like entering The Matrix – your consciousness is ‘plugged into’ this ’reality’ when you enter it, but at the same time, you bring your part of this reality with you, because this is a completely individuated and separated existence. In fact, that individuation is the whole point of life on Earth.
So the reality starts for you the moment you enter it, and it will disappear the moment you leave it, or die. You will take your part that you created with you – this is the sense of loss we feel when someone dies. They are literally removing a part of our energetic reality, or the morphic field.
It’s also that fullness we feel with a birth – the new life literally adds another layer to the energetic tapestry of our world.
An interesting way to start unpacking this for yourself is to consider: how do you know that what you are seeing or hearing is the same thing as what others are seeing and experiencing?
You assume that people see the same ‘thing’ that you do in front of you, but the truth is that we learn a system of codification when we enter the world. Someone points to that spot at the end of their face and says the word ‘nose’. So our brain stores or encodes (codifies) the element we are seeing and correlates it to the word (sound projection) of ‘nose’.
But you actually have no way of looking out through that person’s eyes, with that person’s brain, and seeing what they are actually seeing. You’ve simply agreed, through the codification of language, that that element is a nose, and you use that ‘abbreviation’ (word), when you attempt to communicate, or ‘share’ your experience.
Even when they ‘see’ a ‘photo’, which must be proof that you are ‘seeing’ the same thing, the person is only aligning their internal codification to the picture they are seeing, and agreeing based on that former knowledge. You still cannot experience WHAT exactly they are seeing.
There Is No Actual Physical Creation
There is no place where Earth exists as a physical entity as such – there is simply this collection of combined energies that make up the morphic or holographic field.
So when we say plugged in, it’s a lot more Matrix-like, with your mind participating in the experience and a clever series of filters making it appear real to you.
And even though you need to bring your part to experience this reality, it is only as a collective that we are strong enough to create the space-time illusion of reality that we call the physical plane. So if it was just you, you wouldn’t be able to create the whole shebang alone.
