The Fractal State of Humanity & the "hidden forces" at work: FOR you & against you

 The Fractal State of Humanity & the "hidden forces" at work: FOR you & against you


“To see a world in a grain of sand

And a heaven in a Wild Flower,

Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand

And Eternity in an hour”

~ William Blake ~


 Seeing fractals in very different ways:

· Fractals in nature

· Fractals in people

· Fractal State of Humanity

· Forces: For us & Against us


In the spirit of alliteration: What the frick are fractals and why are they so relevant?

First a brief explanation of the more obvious & natural: fractals in nature & then we move to the not so obvious & supernatural: hidden-unseen-invisible realm of fractals … which is the destination of this writing.

The term “fractal” was coined by the brilliant mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot in 1975. He is best known for his discovery in mathematics of the “Mandelbrot Set” which can be programmed into basic lines of code that create an infinite stream of changing, self-similar patterns. In his seminal work The Fractal Geometry of Nature, he defines a fractal as “a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is … at least approximately … a reduced-size copy of the whole.”


Fractals are “Bio-mimicry in action … that should inspire awe and wonder 

Fractals in nature

Math + Nature = Beauty!!!

A forest is the perfect example for fractals are found at every level of the forest ecosystem from seeds and pine cones, to branches and leaves …to the self-similar replication of ferns, and plants & trees. Trees are natural fractals, patterns that repeat smaller and smaller copies of themselves to create the biodiversity of a forest. Each tree branch, from the trunk to the tips, is a copy of the one that came before it.

                                                                              Glorious !!!

Gardens are another place to explore the fractal nature of growth … to observe the self-replicating patterns of how plants & flowers bloom to attract bees & other creatures.

                                                                           Wonder !!!

Once you know what to look for… you can see them everywhere in nature:

But there’s more to fractals than meets the eye:


“Humans are living breathing fractals” ~Ben Weiss

Fractals found in the human body: lungs, circulatory system, the kidneys, the liver, the pancreas are all organs constructed along self-similar fractal rules. So too is the most remarkable of all the fractals we know on the planet … the human brain.

http://www.fractal.org/Life-Science-Technology/Publications/Fractals-and-Human-Biology.pdf

Ben Weiss reasons in the following: “It could be the brain is not a fractal but the mind is”

And now to shift to the main point of this writing:

“The Fractal State of Humanity” and the “Forces” for you and against you

“Fractal”… from Latin means “broken”


Ring the bells that still can ring

Forget your perfect offering

There’s a crack in everything

That how the light gets in

~ Leonard Cohen from the song “Anthem”


Human beings are “broken”

***

“Broken” in spirit: at the “fall of man” the “flesh” gained authority over the spirit … thus we live our lives governed by the “flesh”: oriented to self, governed by fleshly desires, ruled by externals and focused on the temporal … unless or until we are “born of the Spirit” … then our spirit comes alive to God’s Spirit … and thus we become a “new creation” and we can begin to “walk by the Spirit” & be “led by the Spirit” This spiritual “rebirth” begins the transformation & sanctification process

We are transformed & spiritual growth occurs AS we cooperate with the Spirit of God … because the Holy Spirit can only do for us what we allow Him to do in us.

***

“Broken” in our physical body: as a result of the “fall of man” we age … we are afflicted by disease, life circumstances or events and the earth has become polluted & corrupted by man … thus we die

***

“Broken” in our soul (mind-will-emotions)

… the thinking of man is corrupted when he rejects God’s laws & principles

… the will of man rebels against God: through unbelief & doubt (including mocking)

… without the wisdom of God: emotions & feelings govern behavior & actions

Since the beginning of creation: this “broken” condition has been passed from generation to generation … human beings are born “broken” … into a “broken” world … and out of this “broken” (sinful) condition flows everything that confirms our “broken” nature: fear, greed, rebellion, selfishness … lying, murder, pride, evil … and death (this is the short list)

There is ongoing “war” (battle) within between the flesh of a man & the spirit of man

https://www.desiringgod.org/messages/the-war-within-flesh-versus-spirit


… All is not lost…

“Never be afraid of broken things because Christ is redeeming everything”   The Broken Way by Ann Voskamp


The hidden-unseen-invisible “Forces” for you and against you:

“We don’t see the wind, but we see the wind’s effects on moving the trees and blowing flowers and seeds. We see the force by its actions. Likewise; I believe there is an overlooked force- this is what I call the hidden fractal force.” ~Ali Anani

https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/the-fractal-hidden-force

These words, when spiritually applied, are profound



“Hidden Force” (number 1)
Almighty GOD the Creator of the heavens & the earth … The Great “I AM” Who is: All-seeing, All-knowing, All-powerful, All-sufficient, Omnipotent & Omniscient God has many names that reveal His character … such as

· Elohim (The Creator God)

· Yahweh (Lord, Jehovah … God who is always there)

· Abba (God the Father)

· Jehovah Shalom (The Lord Is Peace)

· Jehovah Raah (The Lord Is My Shepherd)

· El Elyon (The Most High God)

· Adonai (Lord, Master … God who is in charge)

· El Shaddai (The Almighty God)

· Jehovah Jireh (The Lord Will Provide)

· Jehovah Rapha (The Lord Who Heals You)

· El Roi (our God who sees)

· El Olam (The Everlasting God)

… God is for us and nothing can separate us from the love of God …

“If God is for us, then who can be against us?   He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all … how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?  Christ Jesus who died … more than that, who was raised to life … is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ~ Roman 8 (starting with verse 31)

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+8&version=NIV


Do NOT miss the heart of God and the heart of the Gospel “the Good news”

Jesus Christ “lay down His life” He allowed Himself to be “broken that we could be unbroken”



“Hidden Force” (number 2)
Satan. The Devil, the “evil one” … the “god of this age” the “prince of the world” … the “author of confusion”… the “father of lies” … he masterfully uses the same strategies & weapons against man: fear & greed to name just two (these are spiritual conditions)

“The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the Light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. ” 2 Corinthians 4:4

The question is: which spiritual force is being served?
Phillip Britts profoundly states in his book: Water at the Root … “in the essential conflict (good Vs evil) … the final result of knowledge is determined by the spirit is serves”
https://www.bebee.com/producer/@fay-vietmeier-pennsylvania/water-at-the-root



… “We see the force by its actions” … and by the fruit your can recognize the root ...


“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” ~ Romans 1:20

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.” ~ Psalm 19



Concluding thought about fractals:

There is “nothing new under the sun” … all creation declares the glory of God

Although they were not named until 1975, fractals are not a new discovery. Since creation they have existed and if anything they provide clear evidence of an unfathomable Intelligence and A Divine "Master-Architect" … a Master-Plan is revealed in fractals.

(Nothing so perfect evolves with “slime & time”)

I hope the revelation of fractals universally displayed throughout creation (in nature – in human beings, human thinking & human behavior) causes examination of the Majesty, Divine workmanship & Sovereignty of a creative “Force” that is beyond our imagining



Life is infinitely more than what we can see.

“Count to infinity” ~ Ben Weiss

God is everywhere


Giving honor where honor where honor is due. It was a statement by @AliAnani in “The Fractals Hidden Force” that inspired me to pen these thoughts … with much respect, this buzz-post is dedicated to one of the “best of bees” … plus special thanks Ali for attributing to me the encouraging compliment of being a “well-spring spirit”

@Kevin Baker
Are you saying the reptilian brain is in control of its OWN ... brain activity "entirely"
I hope not mine ... I hope not yours ;~)

I did get my thoughts completed for Christmas (I almost hesitate to share that because it is about God)

Being with family will probably mean I'm not with the computer ;~) but I'll be in touch before the year ends
I do wish you and your beautiful children ... including the finches
A wonder-full holiday

#33 @Fay Vietmeier I will post a article about that soon. And it will show that the reptilian brain/mind is in control of all brain activity entirely.

Thank you Kevin … I appreciate your encouragement: “Be there for you”
The pace of the world fights against that. Diverting & distracting … busyness

I remind my son say to my (as I remind myself) that whether you are a Pope, A President, a Philosopher, a Professor, a Philanthropist, a pauper … or an everyday person we all share this one thing in common: 24 hours in a day

Kevin~
I do hope you will forgive me for not returning to the "Well-Spring" bebee patio ... to answer your thoughts
I still have that post pulled up & intend to respond to your last comment
AND I have your "Perception of Intentions" to respond to ... Interesting and I need to ponder my response
I have many (work & personal) challenges pressing in for time & attention
I like to respond t thoughtfully to people ... especially "brilliant-bees" like thee ;~)
I need peace within to ponder & write ...
I am hoping to complete my post for Christmas (not that anyone is expecting my thoughts ... just an internal prompting ;~)

As to your question about reptilian brains ... interesting and WHY DID YOU ASK? What thoughts might you share about the reptilian brain-mind?

If you had ask about dogs or cats I'd say: they are childlike, loving by nature especially to caring people ... trusting ... intuitive ... and have the same instinct to survive that humans do ...
Snakes may possess many of these qualities ... in truth I have never felt an affinity to reptiles or spiders
Humans have free will
In some ways ... animals have freedoms ... when not bound by human walls
I would have to do some research about reptiles to better respond
I did write a very lengthy poem called "The Swamp"
It is filled with all kinds of snakes ... but of the human species

I'll share the last stanza:
No matter how many times a snake sheds its skin
The snake slithers off ... but "The Swamp" lives within

What about the reptilian brain and the reptilian mind, which are not controlled by either the human brain or the human mind?
