Shamanic trance is just a more primal method of the “scientific” method.
We give every evidence of being self-willed creatures, if that only means we can establish limits for our own behavior on the physical, psychic, and spiritual levels. But to human perception, does reality seem to be what we would call stable? Do things tend to stay neat and orderly?
Upheaval doesn’t seem to have a limit does it? What if upheaval is simply very complex behavior of life force? Behavior that our current limits restrict our comprehension of?
We would accelerate life, in a sense? In a sense, yes.
Do you have an example? Economic collapse, social unrest, rampant plague, radical elemental shifts.
Computer power, bell-bottoms and disco. All of the things we have mentioned, yes. Does it not seem like these things are intelligent, if not human hearted? And does anything really transform in parts? This is maybe why science believes that ultimately the physical world is intelligible. Can we comprehend anything that is outside the realm of intelligence or intelligent behavior?
If all things are sentient, then no. But it’s a fun question. Does anything transform in parts? Does an electron suddenly become another particle?
Perhaps at different speeds, but things are forced to align eventually. Speed is really just an issue of perspective, a question of dimension rather than progression.
If someone could comprehend something beyond this multiverse, he would probably be considered mad. That’s true.
Things transform as wholes, and we have no existence outside of the whole in which we exist. We often change in ways that seem unexplainable, even on a personal level.
Then change is simply reality shifting into a different section of existence, like traveling to a different neighborhood. Yes. A shift of geometry or geography, rather than a genuine change of nature.
What if all these mysteries of human experience are so seemingly out of our control, because until now we have been living sort of like plant life, remaining rooted? Remember, the carrot comes to think as you do. If humans are like plants, then their experience of the greater life force would have an understandably passive quality.
So we are at the whims of reality because we haven’t learned how to walk. Exactly. We feel we know reality because we know what the earth we are planted in tastes like.
We could shift our reality as easily as going from the front yard to the back yard. Exactly.
