The Fabric of Life
(c) Robert Neil Boyd

The complexity of communications within the given physical form is astounding. But it goes well beyond that. The entire environment is interconnected with its life forms, which are interconnected and inter-reliant on each other. The complexity is enormous, perhaps beyond the scope of the limited human intellect. Within this fabric of life there is a perfect consistency and response to influences, until man steps in and begins breaking apart the individual elements thread by thread without understanding the fabric which is the whole, the gestult, of that local environmental milieu. The local environmental fabric can develop life forms perfectly and uniquely suited to an area as small as 100 meters across. This local fabric is interconnected to the larger fabric of the overall environmental regime, endemic to that part of the world, e.g., mountain, steppe, desert, taiga, and so on.

Another way to look at this, is that each macro-environment comprises a fabric composed of interdependent life forms, which fabric contains myriads of micro-environments of interdependent life forms. Some of the more advanced creatures, such as the hawk, are elements of the larger fabric, while most of the micro-environment creatures rarely, or never, go outside of that micro-environment into which they were born and are uniquely suited to.

This is only a superficial glimpse of the actual workings, which are inordinately more complicated by the fact that all of the individuals of a given species are connected by a quantum-field-like group consciousness which causes all of the individuals of the member species to cognize what are their enemies, under what circumstances, and why. If a human being swats a fly, all the flies on Earth know that that particular human being is not considered a friend of the fly. Flies have a group mind awareness, a higher level, group cognition, that alters fly behavior in general, relative to that person in particular.

For example, in this case where the human has swatted a fly, the fly gestalt-mind considers that all of the rules of harmony and cooperation and politeness are right out the window as regarding this particular human, so the fly-gestalt-intelligence might decide make sport of this hapless and relatively helpless human. This mechanism is rather like the "hundredth monkey", but it is immediate, and due to the gestalt-mind of the species, as related to any particular individual member of the species. In other words, if you do it to one of them, you have done it to ALL of them.

Over time, and multiple repetitions of similar types of events, a sort of relationship develops between the two given species, where they will exhibit certain behaviors, apparently innately. This is the "hundredth monkey", stretched across large spans of time.

However, this apparently innate behavior and relationship can change over time to become more harmonious and cooperative, as is, innately, the whole of Nature. An example of this is the relationship between the honey bird and the Aborigines of Australia. The bird finds the bee hives and guides the Aborigines to the exact location, in exchange for the large portion of tasty and nutritious honey, which is shared with them by the Aborigines once they have got the hive down. This inter-relationship has been going on for millennia. But were the Aborigines to begin wanton slaughter of honey birds, this arrangement would eventually cease. But, even after such cessation, the arrangement will have been in place so long, that it is actually instinctive behavior on both parts, and appears to become built into the genes, at the environmental gestalt level of gene behavior (which gene gesault is commonly overlooked).

Where ignorant humanity has blindly intervened in Nature's harmony and interdependencies, environmental catastrophes result, particularly at the scale of the micro-environment of approximately 100 meters, give or take a bit. This figure of 100 meters is an approximation which will vary according to climatic zones and habitation zones. In a tundra environment, for example, the micro-environment scale will expand to a much larger area, encompassing perhaps miles. And by no means should we consider this to be some sort of checker-board of regular pattern. The size and shapes of these micro-environments are vastly variable. And also subject to change over time, even without human intervention.

I've done my best to simplify all this. I hope it was somewhat comprehensible... It's actually much more complex and involves quite strong Spiritual components, which most people don't want to talk about, due to the prevailing and limited cultural paradigms. Most interestingly, this all seems to bear some relation to Burrow's "extra-corporeal DNA".

Darwin's theory was created along the lines of reasoning of the Roman Emperor Constantine: A philosophy which will keep the masses in line, and make for lots of good soldiers. (Yeah! Competition! Survival of the fittest! That's the idea! We'll get scads of fierce indoctrinated automatons we can use as troops!) "Keep the masses blinded by fantasies, concepts, and philosophies, and they'll never see the truth.", was apparently the reasoning.

I don't think Darwin should take all the credit. He was after all, a product of his culture and its predilections.
