Humanity exists in an interconnected world.
The movie “Avatar” is more than just wonderful CGI. It tells a very powerful tale of the interconnectedness of all of life and explains the nature of the collective consciousness very well.
When you take a look at the neural connection fibers that each of the creatures on the moon of Pandora has, it is a visible representation of the invisible form of interconnectedness that all of life has on our own planet earth.
The interesting element about Pandora’s ecosystem is that they ‘plug in’ to one another so that can feel each other’s emotions and thoughts. In a larger sense, they are all operating with a single consciousness.
Humanity as a species has the potential to tap into this powerful network of global consciousness whether people realize it or not.
A good example is social media. One merely needs to send a powerful message, and it will immediately affect millions of people (e.g. the me-too movement).
At this point in time, science may not acknowledge this interconnectedness within their parameters, but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to recognize the genius design behind the energy that regulates planet earth or Gaia – the way Greek mythologists call the goddess of earth.
Perhaps humanity as a whole is a very young species who are still very new when it comes to handling the vast amount of information that Gaia has to offer.
All we need to do is to look beyond the ‘logic’ of human communication and you will see how this interconnectedness plays out in the world.
See how plants in a way ‘talk’ to each other through their roots and other ways they sense each other. Plants are, after all – intelligent lifeforms.
Animals are also intelligent enough to communicate with each other without language. Interestingly enough, animals are always the first to evacuate from an incoming tsunami while humans are the ones left behind.
Gaia knows how to take care of herself. She is queen of maintaining a balanced ecosystem.
The Gaia Theory states that living organisms and their inorganic surroundings have the capacity to evolve as one. In essence, they are one single living system that regulates the chemistry and conditions of Earth’s surface in an “automatic” way of life. Just like in the movie, nature doesn’t ‘take sides’ – it just wants to maintain the balance.
Even when humanity fails over and over again at maintaining the balance and greed overtakes to destroy part of the earth, Gaia is self correcting and will right the wrongs in time.
There are a few global issues we can ponder while understanding issues behind human interconnectedness.
Global warming is already melting the polar ice caps. More and more species are losing their natural habitats and global temperature is rising. Can humanity make a U-turn before Gaia fights back?
Regardless about what you feel about eating meat, the vegan movement is also happening on a larger scale now in an effort to preserve the environment. They believe that food can be preserved and used in a more effective way by eating more vegetables rather than feeding all these vegetables to animals (only 10% to 20% efficiency of farm output).
Human trafficking and slavery is still happening in many parts of the world. Would you make a stand against these unjust treatments?
When one considers themselves part of the interconnectedness and no longer turn a blind eye to the problems of the world, they start to take ownership and it can create a ripple effect through the rest of the world.
That is why humanity is now at the precipice of change.
In time, we will be able to ‘download’ new ways to communicate that will bring humanity together – more interconnected than ever.
As more and more people awaken to the realization that they are highly-evolved beings, they will start to prepare themselves for humanity’s next evolutionary step.
Through the lessons of Avatar, let us consider the part we play in the world and what is our role in the ecosystem of life.
