I’d like to talk more about culture because what we share in common is that we lightworkers are building Nova Earth and that means building Nova Culture.
What is culture. The other day I said it was ideas, not behavior or artifacts. Can I illustrate culture creation and transmission? Let’s see…..
Let’s say you come to the blog to have your questions answered. Within our fields of specialization (and they are different), we convey what we hope is helpful information. You get the message and pass the word along. You are creating culture.
Get the idea? Make sense? Don’t pretend. This isn’t make-believe. If it makes sense, then pass the message along. (These words all refer to cultural processes.)
How is culture created and maintained?
Let’s look at our individual part in the process. You get an idea. It may not be your own. According to Vedantists, it’s never your own! Nevertheless, you get an idea.
What do you do with it? Let’s pretend that you write it down. Write it down? Language. A wonderful invention for the creation, maintenance, and transmission of ideas.
Now the reach of your culture generation has multiplied. More ideas come to your head and from them you invent a printing press. The reach of your culture creation increases again.
Then a typewriter, microphone, radio, television, computer, Internet, satellite. Look at the possibilities now for the creation, preservation, and transmission of ideas, which maintains and ever-extends the dynamic cloud that is our culture.
Our ideas embrace physics, chemistry, botany, agriculture, psychology, history, spirituality, on and on. We build machines with our ideas and extend our reach again. We create behavior patterns with them – trends, traditions, etiquettes.
We haven’t really taken a look at our culture, as a society. We’re too busy right now throwing memes at each other and vying for world dominance. We’re still in a laissez-faire, wild-West modality when it comes to this subject.
We haven’t taken the time to look at it as an organic whole, a collective consciousness, that needs maintenance. It’ll take some work to generate interest in actually creating a new culture once the agents of chaos have expended themselves.
Before we actually turn to discussing a global culture, a Nova Culture, readers would have to accept that such a thing as the collective consciousness exists, that we are more than just this body, this suit of armor we clank around in, that there are other dimensions to life than our own, that countless civilizations exist in space and on other dimensions, and other truths which have been denied for so long. These need to be part of a new culture for a fuller truth to be known.
Empirical materialism (the belief that only what we can see, hear, feel, touch, etc. is real) is too small to contain the truth. All paradigms are, but some hold more truth than others. We mount a ladder of consciousness by transcending one paradigm after another. It’s now the turn of empirical materialism to exit the world stage. (1)
I cannot see how the new paradigm could be anything else but love. If we want what the Fifth Dimension has to offer, then what it has to offer, in a nutshell, is love. OK, and bliss. Alright, and joy. All of these are forms of love.
Finally, in the last analysis, the work of culture creation is sacred. It could not and cannot be otherwise because life has a sacred purpose. (2)
(1) Its associated economic paradigm of Social Darwinism (the belief that life is a struggle for survival that favors the fittest) needs also to be retired.
