The Akashic field provides a low level, behind the scenes communication network through which complex systems can interact in very subtle ways, regardless of physical separation and independent of the transport of physical energy. This therefore implements a low-level non-mechanistic implementation of system dynamics that allows for the complex cohesiveness of living systems. One cannot attain this same level of complexity and cohesion through solely mechanistic means, i.e. through communications in the world that pass between nearby systems and which rely on the transport of physical energy.

Only via a combination of mechanistic and transcendent communications can an ant colony self-organise into a cohesive collective whole. In the same way cells self-organise into the bodies of organisms then self-organise into ecosystems and we self-organise into organic communities or informal structures.

Individuation and Mechanistic Feedback

However, once these collectives form they then develop a perceptual and interpretive apparatus (as we organisms do and in particular we humans and also human organisations) and they come to perceive and interpret their world on that collective level. Due to the perceptual illusion of separateness, and ignorance of the underlying reality an ego arises or a government or formal structure arises. It cannot comprehend the intricate self-organising dynamics that implements every aspect of its being and it thinks “I am the doer” but it is simply a high level illusion that arises out of the collective dynamics. It develops a crude materialistic and mechanistic concept of the collective because it cannot perceive the underlying intricacies. It conceives of itself as the only entity of importance and it develops desires and aversions, it pursues agendas and it uses the collective for its own purposes.

Through its actions it imposes its materialistic, mechanistic conceptualisation of reality onto other systems and perceives and responds to them as separated isolated mechanical systems in a separated isolated mechanical world. It imposes its illusion of separateness on the whole cosmic network and fragments the intricate transcendent connectivity into mechanical isolation. It cannot perceive the transcendent connectivity and acts only believing in the mechanical level of reality, thus it cannot take into account the organic cohesion of its world, and its action are inappropriate and tend to destroy that organic cohesion. Thus any system that it interacts with or attempts to create in the external world will become subtly degraded and will degenerate over time. If these systems have only minimal contact with the materialistic being they can repair themselves and persist in spite of the abuse, but any that are drawn into close interaction will be gradually destroyed. Thus those systems that the materialistic being cherishes most, depends upon the most or seeks to repair or heal in a mechanistic manner are the most likely to be harmed.

Through its actions it imposes its materialistic, mechanistic conceptualisation of reality back onto its own inner collective, often directly, trying to refashion the organic collective in the image of its mechanistic expectations (e.g. plastic surgery or economic rationalist restructuring of a society). Or since its fundamental misunderstanding underlies all of its actions they are almost always inappropriate and destructive to the holistic organic functioning of the collective (e.g. junk food and much of allopathic medicine or seeking social harmony through more laws and tougher enforcement). Thus the collective is worn down over time through an entrenched culture of abuse and it gradually degenerates and succumbs to dis-ease and ultimately death.

Everlasting Life

Thus any mechanistic regime is gradually working its way toward destruction and any organic regime can build toward greater cohesion, greater vitality and life. In this sense any egoic or mechanistic system has a limited lifespan with a clock ticking as the vitality of the organic collective is worn away through ongoing abuse. But an organic system can grow, and evolve and live indefinitely. Thus most human civilisations have degenerated over time and eventually died but natural ecosystems have evolved to ever greater heights. This is the meaning of everlasting life attained through heavenly virtue (being ones true Self) as opposed to a life of sin (ignorance and egoic delusion) leading to destruction.

If a complex dynamical system is not perceiving, interpreting and acting based upon a mechanistic conceptualisation of reality then it is functioning in a holistically healthy manner and there is no intrinsic wear and tear, it doesn't wind down like a machine, it grows and evolves toward ever renewing and everlasting life. But neither does it cling to life, it is beyond such concepts as my life, it is what it is, it is a harmonious function of the cosmos and it plays its part within the context of the whole. By being in tune with the transcendent field, by being centred in ones true Self, by not imposing delusional regimes of inappropriate behaviour upon the collective (both inner and outer, indeed beyond concepts of inner and outer), a system whether an ecosystem, a society or an individual being need never die. They need never become trapped in ruts of mindless repetitive abuse, they can break free of all constraints and evolve beyond all challenges, they can forever renew themselves just as a healthy ecosystem does or a healthy community does. There is no intrinsic ticking clock built into such systems; the clock ticks only to mark off instances of abuse that wear away its natural vitality. This is the ultimate result of true holistic systemic health.

It is when one mountain after another cannot rest in an unending chain (an analogy from the I Ching discussed here) and there arises an egoic arms race within the collective, that is when the fabric of creation is torn and destruction arises. As tear builds upon tear the fabric becomes tattered and the collective loses cohesion and the body degenerates; this is what we in our ignorance refer to as ageing, this process need not arise in a healthy holistically coherent collective that remains firmly centred in its Self.
