The Holistic Electric Universe Meme

The lack of belonging the author points to is caused by the mind and its thinking processes – it is the EGO that is constantly formed by thinking which separates one from the whole. It is the EGO that has created religion and belief and does so via the process of thinking that has become also a habit. Ands habits become unconscious activities if repeated enough. So the outcome of the EGO is an imaginal worldview.

Update: However the author goes slightly off the rails when it comes to fossil fuels and the role of money, more from ignorance than anything else.

About Louis Hissink

Retired diamond exploration geologist. I spent my professional life looking for mineral deposits, found some, and also located a number of kimberlites in NSW and Western Australia. Exploration geology is the closest one can get to practicing the scientific method, mineral exploration always being concerned with finding anomalous geophysical or geochemical data, framing a model and explanation for the anomaly and then testing it with drilling or excavation. All scientific theories are ultimately false since they invariably involved explaining something with incomplete extant knowledge. Since no one is omniscient or knows everything, so too scientific theories which are solely limited to existing knowledge. Because the future always yields new data, scientific theories must change to be compatible with the new data. Thus a true scientist is never in love with any particular theory, always knowing that when the facts change, so too must he/she change their minds.
