The Great Sensory Equation Dance: The Life of Albert Einstein’s Grand Unified Field in Active and Practical Reality
- Michael J. Cohen
On April 18, 1955. Albert Einstein was taken to the Princeton hospital, where one of his final requests was for some notepaper and pencils so he could continue to work on his elusive unified field theory. He died shortly after one a.m. By his bed were twelve pages of tightly written equations, littered with cross-outs and corrections. To the very end, he struggled to find and defend the unified Cosmos that he instinctively knew existed. The final thing he wrote, before he went to sleep for the last time, was one more line of symbols and numbers that he hoped might get all of us a little step closer to the singly unified spirit manifest in the laws of the universe.
Ironically, Einstein had already found what he was looking for. He was unaware of it simply because it appeared in a different form and label than what his genius and training used to identify it. You are probably not aware that as human beings, the same is true for most of us. The unadulterated Web of Life on Earth knows and practices grand unification, its love for the integrity of its wholeness, that we are part.
Einstein was attracted to spend his last decades fighting to meld the subatomic and universal realms under one "Grand Unified Field Theory equation." Sadly, his feeling eventually gave in to doubt. "All my attempts, however, to integrate the theoretical foundation of physics to this new type of knowledge failed completely," he wrote. "It was as if the ground had been pulled out from under me...."
Although he could not prove in physics this new type of knowledge, Einstein said:
"A human being is part of the whole, called by us 'Universe'; a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely but striving for such achievement is, in itself, a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security."
"The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking."
Einstein In Action
Unlike Einstein, my "maverick genius" work in Organic Psychology has only prevailed these past 50 years because I discovered how the Unified Field itself could support what I've been doing...what the National Audubon Society identified in 1976 as the "Most revolutionary school in America." Otherwise, my findings have repeatedly been rejected or omitted by central ways of thinking in Industrial Society.
Recently, I laughed when a Post Doctoral expert in a field I respect mentioned after studying my work that she was going to nominate me for a Nobel Prize. My first reaction was that the Nobel folks had mistakenly produced a new category: “Meshuggah” for those who think the Universe is a single, alive, unified, attraction/love consciousness that is attracted to grow itself more attractive through diversity and individuality, moment by moment. What is crazy about that? A plant does it as it grows a seed and then the seed grows to do the same. Who taught the plant to do it?
Einstein seemed to inherently know that his felt-sense thoughts were a truth of the Universe when he had them and until they were proven to be inaccurate:
"If the facts don't fit the theory, change the facts."
- Albert Einstein
I found it amusing to be identified as a Maverick Genius in 1986 because according to Edmond Duranty, "It takes immense genius to represent, simply and sincerely, what we see in front of us." This was funny because my work includes developing complex sensory strategies that bring into play processes that are presently missing or inconvenient truths. What I have done is more like Emerson’s view: "When nature has work to be done, she creates a genius to do it." To me, that means that just the intelligence of Mother Nature as my left-handedness alone is a genius. I simply help folks consciously connect with her total genius, in and around them.
Nature's genius was to never inform me about what she was doing to me so I couldn't resist. She pushed me into a Shark pool and said, “Swim for our life” and “I’m sorry that being with me in the woods too long has made folks think you fell out of your tree just because you keep learning from the experience how to think via attraction intensity, like nature works.”
Nature's genius: "Compared with most organisms, slime molds have been on the planet for a very long time—they first evolved at least 600 million years ago and perhaps as long as one billion years ago. At the time, no organisms had yet evolved brains or even simple nervous systems. Yet slime molds do not blindly ooze from one place to another—they carefully explore their environments, seeking the most efficient routes between resources; they solve mazes. They do not accept whatever circumstances they find themselves in, but rather choose conditions most amenable to their survival. They remember, anticipate and decide. By doing so much with so little, slime molds represent a successful and admirable alternative to convoluted brain-based intelligence."
Nature International Journal of Science
What I believe I am is a genius in escapism, a person who has a couple of PhD’s in sleeping outside throughout the seasons for five decades as part of my research about people's relationship with the life of the Unified Field. I spent almost two of these decades designing and guiding accredited year-long environmental education expeditions that constantly camped out in the wonders of natural areas and, by design, became self-organized utopias within ten weeks. The ground was not pulled out from under me, rather it grounded or rooted me in the biodiversity of nature’s realities including Planet Earth being conscious that it is alive. Not only is one of these realities the unifying essence of the Cosmos that Einstein intuited, it is also the use of self-evidence facts to experience this essence while supported by wisdom that Einstein contributed. Einstein might agree with this; he was on the same path in a different venue.
"The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift."
- Albert Einstein
With respect to an observation by Confucius that “The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their right name,” from its inception the Universe has not been what we call “physics symbols, numbers and equations.” Rather it knows itself without stories and labels, rather as a wide variety of conscious, resonating particle and energy attraction relationships that scientists should correctly identify and label as a Dance, the balancing dance of wholeness whose music is its resonance. I substantiated the life of the Dance that registers in our body, mind and spirit through 54 natural attraction senses that operate with or without their names. To our loss we indoctrinate ourselves to mislabel, conquer and cage these sensations and their wisdom.
The Tao is the "Way," the origin of the Universe, a myriad of things, including humans, in homeostatic balance. It is not a 'name' for a 'thing' but the underlying natural order of the Universe that is evident in one's being of aliveness that is eternally nameless.
- Huangdi (2697 - 2597 BC), edited.
Einstein was not looking for the unifying essence of the Dance that we call Nature, he was looking for a label, an equation. For this reason he could not find the Universe’s grand unified field. It was as if he was expert in using a special door key that he invented but it was for a different house than the one he wanted to enter.
My attraction to know the elusive Grand Unified Theory and its Field (GUT-Field) was the same as Einstein’s. As I describe in my books Educating, Counseling and Healing With Nature (ECHN) and The Hidden Organic Remedy: Nature as Higher Power, the difference is that I ended up looking in natural area experiences instead of laboratories and equations.
In Nature, the Dance found me. As a youngster, untamed areas felt very attractive to me, a sense that called me to “get away from it all.” Maybe the areas were attractive because all things in nature are attracted to each other in a homeostatic balance that they invent and have invented over time. They don’t have to be put together artificially by human effort and lazy me found that very attractive.
We usually take the naturally attractive purity and balance of Nature for granted but, until proven otherwise, the natural attraction of everything to everything else is Einstein's Unified Field. It eludes us simply because how we think and feel is indoctrinated to overlook it, as I show was the case with Einstein.
My childhood circumstances brought natural attraction to my attention and my extensive time in nature made me center on this unifying quality everywhere I went. It became restorative for me as well as the core of my personal and professional relationships.
To date, those who carefully observe or experience the resonating Dance of Nature recognize that since its birth as our universe, all things in it give rise to new things and all are connected. These connections are resonating attractions of the Universe “to be,” for it consciously to be the attractive, whole life Dance of Nature. They are attraction's attraction to Big Bang orgasmic grow into attractive material and energy.
I call Nature’s singular natural attraction essence the GreenWave or “NNIAAL” an acronym that reminds me that NNIAAL is a unifying, alive and conscious dance of Now, Non-literate (nameless), Intelligent, Attraction, Aliveness, Love.
Throughout its wide variety of material and energy forms NNIAAL has unified and held the Dance of Nature together from its ancient instant of origin through its all-attractive eons of growth and development, from sub-atomic particles to the Universe of this moment and the next. NNIAAL is the heart core of everything macro or micro in Nature. Its resonance is its pulse through the eons being “more attractive-less attractive,” repeatedly. As long as life and its conscious and passionate desire to live (survival) remain attractive, the unified sway and rhythm of the macro and micro Dance of NNIAAL is not repulsive and it has a unifying purpose. It's "magic" is that attraction is conscious of what it is attracted to, that is how it knows what it loves to attach to.
Matter and energy are NNIAAL in action since the beginning of time. They are the essence of love that every individual experiences and expresses on some level. All things in the Dance being attractive explains how and why Nature loved us into being as attractive dancers as well as why Nature’s Dance does not produce garbage or pollution.
As attractive NNIAAL dancers all things about us belong. This includes our 54 natural attraction senses, our individual and collective thoughts, feelings, instincts, drives, loves, needs, transformations and wants. They, along with the rest of the web of life and its interconnecting NNIAAL web-strings, are conscious of their attraction for us to dance in unity and balance into the next moment of NNIAAL, in and around us.
Our attractive 54 natural senses are attracted to directly register and communicate in Nature’s Dance as 54 distinct felt-sense ways of us knowing the Dance and its dancers. Our body, mind and spirit sensibly experience the Dance as being self-evident through our senses of Consciousness, Reason and accurate Literacy.
Ironically, the the GUT-Field that Einstein sought was in reality his passionate attraction to find it. His love of knowledge was not numbers, symbols or equations; it was NNIAAL in action, in him, as him and around him since the GUT-Field connects all things to unify them.
As part of the the GUT-Field, what we are attracted to look for is what is attracted to look.
If you are attracted to go on to the next paragraph, that attraction is the field expressing itself in and as you.
My years dancing Nature’s dance made it reasonable to sense that the origin of everything today was the original attraction of the Big Bang to manifest itself as a self-created seed of attraction energy. That independent seed of energy (no matter what we label the attraction that created it) was the Scientific Big Bang’s attraction to express itself as the dance of our Universe.
The recent discovery of the Higgs Boson Field and Gravity Waves further affirmed what I had deduced from self-evidence in Nature three decades earlier and what the sensory art of Natural Attraction Ecology includes in my Warranty about its science. Gravity and the Boson field are attractions conscious that they are attracted to exist at the temperature of the Big Bang, and they became more diverse attraction energies as cooling and expansion of the universe occurred.
What this all means is that the source of “reality” in our Big Bang Universe is Nature’s Unified Field attraction dance as it creates it own time and space to dance it in the Now, moment-by-moment. It includes natural attractions, the Field's ability to be conscious of what it is attracted to in the moment. It means that each of us is a special personification of the Field. The whole Dance can be found by applying Project NatureConnect's version of the Equation that Einstein tried to identify as an equation.
In Nature, Einstein's Unified Field is time. It's the time and space of all things in the Universe happening together instant after instant in the nameless self-balancing way of the Tao. In contrast, our contemporary story world needs time to operate so we indoctrinate ourselves to believe, "The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once." (questionably a quote by Einstein). Our attachment to this inaccurate story produces the hurt of nature-disconnection that we tranquilize with additional nature-inaccurate stories and the addictive, short-lived comfort they provide. This makes us eviscerate Earth and us.
THE TRUE STORY: Our story-world knows time as an identifiable sequence of events while the life of story-less Earth and Nature, in and around us, knows time to be all things as a single unifying ongoing attraction like a river conscious that it is attracted to flow downhill. Our need to make it into a story makes the seamless flow be recognized as moments that our story affirms.
Our challenge is to recognize that to know the flow of the river we put a camera or ourself in it and that modifies the flow so we really don't get to know its "unadulterated" ways. As we distort it, our stories about it become distorted. Knowing it in an immediate 54 sense way prevents this distortion and its adverse effects and we get to know our natural selves in this way and avoid the stress of acting inappropriately.
We are not separate from the whole-life Dance of time or from each other or any other aspect of reality with the exception of the Nature-disconnected stories that we invent and then live.
What we bring into the next moment affects the posture of that moment. Our problem is that we have learned to leave conscious sensory contact with the life of Earth/Nature out of this process 99.9 percent of our lifetime. This disconnection places Earth and us further apart and at risk, moment by moment.
Dancing the Remedy
The process of Educating, Counseling and Healing with Nature (ECHN) is a Rosetta Stone of the science-based Universe, an antidote for the separation that produces today's dilemmas. To the benefit of the whole web of life, it enables us to prevent and address the disastrous problems we suffer from our attachments to nature-disconnected distortions about NNIAAL and about the way nature works.
In our excessively closeted, 99 percent nature estranged society it is the exclusion of the truth and powers of ECHN from our lives that produces our troubles, and the inclusion of ECHN that helps us solve them. We must use the attractive and unifying NNIAAL sensibility in ECHN to learn from it and teach others to do the same.
Whole Life Science
Our challenge is that Objective Science is the process of reasoning based on accurate information while we are socialized by nature-disconnected, non-evidence based, false information and our “subjective” emotional attachments to it. To rectify this dilemma, Objective Science must now include the GreenWave whole Life Science of ECHN. It includes as fact “subjective” self-evident sensation information that is registered and gained from genuine sensory contact with authentic natural areas through our inherent 54 NNIAAL senses and sensibilities. This ECHN process enables our body, mind and spirit to consciously blend with the GUT-Field.
ECHN gives us the tools for reasoning that sensibly includes nature-connected sensations thoughts and feelings in the immediate moment. The tools connect us to seamless continuum of ancient NNIAAL, to our directly observable contemporary NNIAAL experiences, effects and events.
If, then, it is true that the axiomatic basis of theoretical physics cannot be extracted from experience but must be freely invented, can we ever hope to find the right way? I answer without hesitation that there is, in my opinion, a right way, and that we are capable of finding it. I hold it true that pure thought can grasp reality, as the ancients dreamed.
Whole Life Science gives our multisensory personhood access to past cosmological events as they manifest themselves in the immediate time and space of the Standard Universe. This in itself is validation and proof of the the GUT-Field beginning from which reasoning began along with all of its consequent implications.
The Sin of Omission
If we omit Natural Attraction love as the essence of unification, the GUT-Field remains unproven. However if we accept experientially registering the NNIAAL of everything through our 54 senses, we unify as was the singular origin of the universe unified with itself. This is because at the beginning, only one thing was born from nothing, and then, like DNA that solely consisted of self-organizing attraction energy, it was attracted to grow into the wholeness of this present moment of our Universe. Scientists discovering that the genome for life was present in the Universe ten billion years ago supports this observation.
Including our 54 felt natural senses as part of the GUT-Field is our best hope to get closer to its truth and recover our lost balancing powers along with Earth/Nature’s restorative ways. This is easily doable by using ECHN. It helps us connect our 54 senses to a natural area and benefit from what the area is attracted to share or disclose on Earth from its the GUT-Field roots in the eons. Conscious contact with the GreenWave Unified Field empowers us to unify across interpersonal, social, racial, political, religious and geographical differences.
If you are in this instant attracted to going on to the next moment while being more in conscious sensory contact with Nature, you are in touch with and part of how the the GUT-Field dance manifests its ways now and forever. However, if doing this is repulsive to you, in the next moment you will find yourself being part of the repulsive aspects of human life that the whole of life presently suffers. In the GUT-Field repulsion is not unifying so it does not exist. What exists is attraction to connect with something else, something more strongly attractive. When repulsion does appear as disconnection from the GUT-Field and NNIAAL its destructiveness speaks for itself.
Dance Your Genius
Along with everything else, you may easily support the Dance of the GUT-Field genius that you were born. Your genius not only diagnoses situations, it supplies answers through its ability to reduce the complicated to the simple and to productive reaction against one's misguided training.
Genius is aware that the senses of pain and fear are GUT-Field attractions, that they attractively alert us to dangerous nature-disconnects and motivate us to embrace additional attractions in the next the GUT-Field moment.
Genius recognizes that to invent the atmosphere and our unifying desire to breathe with its dance, the GUT-Field first had to invent the universe.
Dancing in Unity
You may choose for your next moment to begin to let ECHN help you participate in the dance of the GUT-Field and unify yourself, your friends and the world through ECHN natural area activities, backyard or backcountry. If you can’t do this for yourself maybe you can do it because the spirit of Einstein would appreciate it. And if you did it, you might experience the joy and wonder of Albert Einstein and the Web of Life thanking you.
Like Einstein and many others, are you looking for the GUT-Field because of its value? Do you recognize that you have found it here? It is the space between the paragraphs, above, the time that attracted you to go on to the next paragraph and end up, now, in and at this period.
Why not consciously stay in contact with the authentic GUT-Field and come into balance? In the next moment, with full honor and love for the GUT-Field as our living planet: in a natural area let the NNIAAL dance of your inherent genius slowly take a deep breath and honor how and what you feel.
Are you aware of Einstein's background?
I have taken the essence of the information and experiences, above, and condensed it into an applicable equation for folks who want to benefit from tangibly plugging into Einstein's Grand Unified Field. It is free so you can instantly begin to use it because you want to help increase personal, social and environmental well being. Why wouldn't you want to click on it now?
This acronym equation is as whole life true and practical as 2 + 2 = 4 because every part of it is repeatable, self-evident experience.
Your gut attraction to find and benefit from the GUT-Field is the Field loving to be in action via its attractive energies as you because you are your personification of it that can tell and understand stories.
Make that attraction stronger.
