Daily Dedroidify: P.D. Ouspensky's In search of the miraculous

There is nothing dead or inanimate in nature, there are simply different degrees of animation and different scales of time and life. Everything in its own way is intelligent and conscious, only this intelligence and consciousness is expressed in a different way on different levels of being - i.e. on different scales. “Time is the life-breath” and the duration of “life” of differing states varies on different time scales of existence, e.g. fractional seconds for atomic electrons, minutes for molecules, various terms for the cells of organic life, milliards for earth, eons for suns, etc. Each level “lives” in its own transient “state”, and having lived, its energy is reworked, transformed according to the will of the larger cosmos of which it is a component.

Evolution of man is the development in him of those powers and possibilities which never develop naturally by themselves, i.e. mechanically. Man cannot conquer nature. In living, in reproducing, in degenerating, in dying, in decomposing, man equally serves the purposes of nature. The evolution of large masses of humanity is opposed to nature's purposes, but a small number may evolve as exceptions, which is of interest not to nature but only to the individuals concerned; personal evolution is the result of conscious struggle.

"The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer - they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer." Kevin Kesey
