In the Presence of Choice

In the Presence of Choice | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

I want to propose that in between cause and effect, there is a great deal more spaciousness than people realize in which to choose, regardless of the intensity of the situation or severity of the occasion. I would like my friends to understand this. I would like our leaders to understand this. I would like everyone anywhere who has picked up a gun for a cause, framed in good or vengeful terms, to experience this for a long, long moment. I want people who call the shots in the boardroom, and make the deals on the streets, who are paying off or getting off a sentence, school term, mortgage or marriage, to experience just how big, empty, weightless and, well spaciousthis space can be. It’s very very big, and in all directions empty and infinite. And yet our fission-reactor self with its continuously, cyclically repeating, relating to relating to relations, fills it up, easily, compulsively, mechanically and completely. Or so we think.

Anne Caspari's insight:

"The philosopher Alfred North Whitehead said that reality arises through a series of moments which feel into the past moment as they feel for(ward) the next moment.This process of feeling traces of existence from past actualities to future possibilities is the fulfillment of both karma and choice – the same as Kierkegaards “balancing act between possibility and necessity.” For Whitehead, the action in-between was nothing at all like the tight wire between the physicists’ cause and effect. Rather, Whitehead thought of this feeling-process—which he called “prehension” – as incredibly sensitive, provocative, and loving; and he construed it asthe long, long moment of possibility, freedom and choice, in the timeless space of becoming, before the actual occasion is concretized into being. Rearranged this way, all cause becomes some agent’s choice – and the spaciousness in between is the choice-field each agent roams." Bonnitta Roy

 

what I call in less poetic terms "reality edge surfing".
