It seems as if I could be through rambling about the limits of humans ability to learn. Ramble I did, because I got of on several sidetracks. Even with the sidetracks there are many things that are implied in all the Thoughts posts that can yet be uncovered. I hope someone will delve into the things I left unsaid.
Everything in the universe is interconnected. The interdependency of all things has not been proven by anyone that I am aware, but for me what we do know puts forth that conclusion. We are one together with all other things.
To try to learn, comprehend our environment the human intellect has to set up boundaries, standards, parameters or whatever sound one decides to use to represent them. By breaking the whole into parts we can never see the totality of what we are studying. The more we learn the more we move away for the full picture of what we are studying.
As I wrote the Thoughts posts, I used examples. So far in this post, I have summed up what I said without the examples. In my next section the emphasis will be on using some of the basics stated in previous posts in life situations.
- And truly, I reiterate, . . nothing's small! No lily-muffled hum of a summer-bee, But finds some coupling with the spinning stars; No pebble at your foot, but proves a sphere; No chaffinch, but implies the cherubim: And,–glancing on my own thin, veined wrist,– In such a little tremour of the blood The whole strong clamour of a vehement soul Doth utter itself distinct. Earth's crammed with heaven, And every common bush afire with God: But only he who sees, takes off his shoes, The rest sit round it, and pluck blackberries, And daub their natural faces unaware More and more, from the first similitude.
