an article I wrote that i would describe as a form of 'social permaculture'
The Metamorphosis Of Man

Each year when I am working in the garden in late spring and begin to see the caterpillars munching their way through my kale and tomato plants (leaving big holes in the foliage) I find that part of me feels compelled to go to war with the veracious little creatures. After I take a deep breath and gather myself, I remember that without the caterpillars there would be no butterflies.

Today when we look around the world it is easy to notice how the current dominant human systems and governments are behaving in a very destructive, ‘gluttonous’ and non-sustainable way. This can be analogized to the behavior of a caterpillar, eating it`s way through the ecosystem devouring everything in its path, leaving a wake of destruction behind it.

The caterpillar eats many times its own body weight in a single day and continues consuming at this non-sustainable rate until it’s so bloated that it hangs itself up and goes to sleep. The chrysalis then begins to form, and the rest of what was the caterpillar becomes a nutritive soup. Its at this point that something amazing happens, these new cells begin to show up out of nowhere (that biologists call “Imaginal cells”). These emergent cells embody a template for an entirely new being and begin to transform the caterpillar from the inside into what will emerge from the cocoon as a butterfly.

What is important to realize in this analogy is that the old and the new co-exist for a while. This is the stage we are now entering but on a grander scale that of a planetary metamorphosis. The old system is the caterpillar, and it is up to those brave souls who want to nourish a new way of being for humanity on planet earth to embody the template for the change they wish to see in the world. Together we will be as the Imaginal Cells, and transform this world from the inside out.

It begins with each individual, starting with our inner space and moving into our actions in the world around us. To be an “Imagninal Cell” on a planetary scale is to choose love and cooperation, over fear and greed, to embody the principles of permaculture day to day and think (like the Iroquois people did) about how each footprint we leave behind will effect the next seven generations who will call this place home after we are no longer here. To bring about a transformation on a global scale we must all work together to create communities full of sustainable (or preferably regenerative) and self-sufficient households, thereby rendering the current parasitic system obsolete and leaving it behind.

Beyond these action and ecologically grounded paths we can take as individuals to begin the transform our world into the world we all want to live in I feel that it is also important to address the role of our inner environment on our outer environment.

Our modern education system conditions us to believe that when we think or feel something internally that it is essentially an experience which only has an effect on the one having the thought/emotion, but is that really true?

Recent increases in the sensitivity of EMF measurement technology have enabled scientists to gather unprecedented insights into the energetic fields produced by the human brain and heart. These new experiments in biophysics, consciousness and electromagnetism have confirmed what many ancient spiritual teachings have been telling us for millennia, that what we think and feel has a profound impact on the world around us and those we share it with. (For more info on this new science see: https://www.heartmath.org/research/global-coherence/ )

Many claim to seek a path to peace and the bringing about of a new paradigm for mankind while waiting for others to do the groundwork so that they can find sturdy footing. In truth, we are the architects and sculptors of the path we find laid before our feet. Not only our actions, but also the thoughts and emotions we choose as individuals are what shapes what will become our shared experience on earth. For this world we share is influenced by more than just physical stimuli.

The experiments I mentioned above (involving the biological systems of the heart/brain interaction and electromagnetism) are now showing us that the fields of energy produced by the heart are in fact modulated and encoded with specific frequencies depending on what we think and feel. These encoded energy fields have now been proven to extend a great distance beyond where our physical body actually resides. Their effect is now measurable at a distance both on other people as well as on the very matter that makes up the world we live. When the interconnected electromagnetic fields of our hearts and brains interact and influence each other, scientists call it “the morphogenic field” or “morphogenic resonance”.

In recent years satellites which are designed to measure and observe the electromagnetic field of the earth have inadvertently measured and confirmed the presence of this “morphogenic field”. Princeton University researchers made this discovery when they observed how unprecedented shifts in the frequency of Earth’s EMF coincided with several disastrous events that were broadcasted globally such as the events of September 11, 2001.

( See: http://noosphere.princeton.edu )

On days when tragedy struck and humanity had a strong emotional reaction the entire electromagnetic field of the earth shifted. Previous scientific experiments involving consciousness have also measured another effect which is inverse to that which was measured accidentally by the geosynchronous environmental satellites (mentioned above). When people consciously choose to feel positive emotions and thoughts inwardly, the resulting biological and electromagnetic information is encoded into the morphogenic field and effects other people’s consciousness at a distance.

One such social experiment involved a group practicing a specific kind of “mental coherence training” (aka “meditation”) in 1993 in Washington DC.

(see : http://istpp.org/crime_prevention/ )

Based on previous experiments and data, the project’s researchers publicly predicted that the coherence group would reduce violent crime by 20%. This prediction had been ridiculed by the Chief of Police who asserted that the only thing that would decrease violent crime that much would be 20 inches of snow. In the end, the maximum decrease was 23.3%. This significant reduction occurred when the size of the group was at its largest in the final week of the project and during a blistering heat wave. The statistical probability that this result could reflect chance variation in crime levels was less than 2 in 1 billion (p< .000000002).

This was a carefully controlled scientific demonstration which challenges the presumption of the paradigm of thought that sees matter and the world around us as static and unaffected by what thoughts or emotions we hold in our heart.

After collating the data from the experiment in Washington and comparing the results to several similar experiments the scientists were able to calculate the specific number of people required before a “critical mass” is reached and this effect of information being transmitted instantly via a collective consciousness becomes systemic.

This data confirmed that when a small percentage of the population achieved peace within themselves, that peace was reflected in the world around them.

The results took into account the days of the week, holidays, and even lunar cycles; and they were so consistent that (as I mentioned above) the researchers were able to identify the minimum number of people needed to experience inner peace before it’s mirrored in the surrounding world: the square root of one percent of the population.

This represents only the base number required for the effect to begin – the more people participate, the more pronounced the outcome.…regardless of whether it’s a small community, a classroom, a large city, or the entire planet.

On this path we are shaping towards the future the thoughts we choose are the stepping stones and the emotions we give our energy to are the mortar that holds them in place. With each thought, emotion and action we are embodying a template which has both physical and energetic ripple effects on those around us and on the physical matter that makes up the world we live on.

In light of his fact I feel that it’s time we stopped playing the victim of outside circumstances and begin to consciously and intentionally create a world worth giving to future generations. Not only by taking responsibility for our actions, but through taking responsibility for our thoughts and emotions as well.

In order to bring about a metamorphosis for humanity we must first bring about a metamorphosis in our consciousness as individuals. This requires an honest look inward, and taking the time to “weed the garden of the mind” through meditation/ practicing stillness. It involves a conscious choice to transform of our perception of what it means to be human being and it requires a remembering of how connected we are to those we share this world with.

Lasting peace on Earth cannot and will not be achieved through military might, rules, regulations, governments or any other kind of violent coercion. Trying to force peace onto a group of humans through any means while their consciousness is still full of fear and confusion is an exercise in futility. In order for peace to become permanent and the norm in our society it must first come from within. Peace and equality on earth must be brought about through an ‘organic grass roots transformation of consciousness’, only then will it be a self sustaining peace with a foundation strong enough to last the ages.

Just like the “Imaginal Cells” in the chrysalis (which are instrumental in a caterpillar becoming a butterfly) each one of us has the potential to embody a new template for humanity. Through embodying a “template for a new paradigm” (both inwardly and outwardly) we create a chain reaction which directly effects the “cells” around us (human beings) and it begins the transform the collective (Humanity) of which we are an intrinsic part. It all begins with us as individuals, and what this new science of consciousness is telling us is that it must begin with a transformation from the inside out.

I implore each and everyone of you who reads this really consider the implications of these new scientific discoveries and then ask your self honestly “do my actions, thoughts and emotions align with the vision of what I want to see in the world around me?”

Within each and every one of us is the capability to be as an Imaginal Cell and become the change we wish to see in the world from the inside out. If enough of us take responsibility for the reality we are helping to create and choose to become a catalyst for positive change, within a generation we will bear witness to the next stage in human evolution. It will be an era of lasting peace, abundance, equality, unbridled creativity and innovation where we begin to take steps to to one day take our rightful place amongst the stars.
