Capitalism is but a symptom of the dualistic nature of third dimensional form. If we are to continue as a species, humans must evolve beyond animalistic survivalism that creates a loser for every winner. Irresolvable polarity can only be transcended by reaching for a more inclusive point of view from a greater level of consciousness.
We access this wisdom by turning within for peace and right action. As we do so, we begin to see that we exist multi-dimensionally, with the ability to tap into awareness far beyond human form, no matter our intelligence level—dimensions being energy forms as consciousness.
Science, as a valuable tool for understanding the complexity of our world, is a pointer for understanding the more esoteric. DaVinci, Aristotle, Einstein were just a few of the individuals “plugged in” to the infinite through science.
Science tells us all of Life in the realm of form contains opposing positive and negative charges, as expressed in an atom. This singular, primordial force expressing as two, is the dynamic and originating source of Creation present in the entire 3D spectrum. Simply put, all form at this level of consciousness carries both its pros and cons. (Interestingly, religion calls one of the two “sin.”)
Form is not just what can be seen with the physical eye, but is also thought as consciousness, floating in what we call empty space and, in its denser vibrational form, as sound, such as the spoken word or music.
In every moment, holistically, the Universe’s positive/negativity is in a state of perfect equilibrium. When we view the world with only third dimensional consciousness, it appears that there are times when one of the two energy forms dominates, essentially becoming a “parasite” (relatively speaking), until it destroys its “host” and stases once again are restored. Now let’s relate the science to economics.
The irony of capitalism-generated income inequality is, like a feudal system, it causes stagnation as real wealth, similar to Universal energy in a closed system, remains a constant. (At this point, man gets creative and starts to generate artificial wealth to bamboozle each other—namely derivatives.) What happens when policy-driven bubbles burst and there is no growth? It’s a crisis. Why is China so concerned, along with the rest of the world, with GDP?
The three central elements of capitalism are capital accumulation, competition and a price system. Capitalism’s kryptonite is growth—or rather, the lack thereof. The problem with dependency on growth is that it “consumes” all in its path like a wildfire out of control. Add the dynamic of competition to the tinderbox and you create a firestorm resulting in the amassing of fortunes for the sake of amassing fortunes, a means to an insatiable end and what Plato’s student, Aristotle, scorned—the making of money through means of monopoly. Monopolies mean imbalance created by power and control.
Growth is yang run amok without complementary yin conservation in equal measure. Growth is not sustainable as a disparate planet, also a living organism, utilizes energetic processes to right itself, meaning that could include dramatic changes to human habitation. How do we develop sustainable social systems that truly do serve the good of all, thriving even amidst conservation and declining populations as we mature as a species?
