Musings on Nets, Webs and Fields

Here we are, using a network of computers linked together, connecting with each other across the Internet on the World Wide Web, abbreviated as WWW, commonly known as The Web. We can communicate with our families and with friends we might never have found in any other way, while also accessing the libraries of the world. What a wonderment and miracle this is: the greatest “new invention” in human history, and the one that’s having the biggest effect on our lives!

Our words and expressions are interesting reflections of us.

The first definition listed in the American Heritage Dictionary for “net” is: “an openwork fabric made of threads or cords that are woven or knotted together at regular intervals.” Further, “network” is defined as: “an openwork fabric or structure in which chords, threads or wires cross at regular intervals,” then as “an extended group of people with similar interests or concerns who interact and remain in informal contact for mutual assistance or support” and also as, “a system of computers interconnected by telephone wires or other means to share information.” Of course, those other means now include cell phone towers and satellites.

For “web,” the meanings listed begin with: “a woven fabric” and further down, “a lattice or woven structure,” and, of course, “a structure of delicate, thread-like filaments characteristically spun by spiders…”

Beyond the usual meadows, the dictionary defines a “field” as: “a wide, unbroken expanse,” and goes on to mention the term’s use in computer science as: “an element of a database record in which one piece of information is stored,” while physics uses it to describe “a region of space characterized by a physical property, such as gravitational or electromagnetic force…” “Fieldwork” is defined as: “work done or firsthand observations made in the field, as opposed to that done or observed in a controlled environment.” Oh, and let’s add “field day” to our list: “a time of great pleasure, activity or opportunity.”

In the most ancient, shamanic belief-systems, a shaman is sometimes metaphorically referred to as the spider that travels across the cosmic web of alternate realities to obtain information and facilitate healing. It’s where they do their “spiritual fieldwork.” And, I know some who have a real “field day” doing it!

Ancient Hindu cosmology describes the “Akashic Records,” and psychic Edgar Cayce spoke of the very same thing during the first half of the 20th century. The Akashic Field records everything that ever happened, is happening and will happen from the birth of our cosmos until its end, including every breath, thought, word, and deed of every life form. In other words, it’s an all-inclusive, humongous file cabinet of all information.

A recent theory of quantum physics describes the “Zero Point Energy Field” underlying the world of matter and energy that we experience. It’s also referred to as a “universal information field” – the place where everything we know, everything that exists, comes from and returns to – the ultimate “recycling station.” Hmmm…sound familiar? No wonder philosopher and systems theorist, Ervin Laszlo, upon noticing the similarities, combined and renamed the Akashic Records-Zero Point Energy Field the “A-Field.”

How interesting. Can it be just a coincidence that we are made up of a lattice of DNA and use our neural net while sitting at our computers having a field day networking with others across the WWW of endless, Internet information? Have you noticed the “as above, so below” quality of that? Or how this technology reflects and reinforces our “Oneness”?

And so…here we are together at an exquisite intersection of science and spirit…one of my favorite places! Let the explorations begin…

  3. That was a wonderful essay! You wove a beautiful unified field tapestry of science and spirit! It brought together all the different disciplines and areas of thought and meta-thought that interest me, and I know, many others.

    I’m happy to meet you and your blog!

  4. At the intersection of the networks: We came to be. I can attest to your inner vision and personal abilities to transcend the moment and propel a person beyond their personal current level of faith. I am encouraged by your commitment here and will be a faithful follower wherever you may roam. I know that I walk not alone.

    How absolutely amazing – well done!!

    And synchronicity again strikes the two of us 🙂 Indeed I feel a ‘net’ surrounding us and drawing us together. For I, too, started my very first blog this week -( http://ecofootprintsa.blogspot.com ) following on from my web page.

    It is Ronnie’s and my wish to escape to our ‘farm’ as soon as possible in order to live a life more in harmony with this planet – thus focus our reliance on what we can achieve and less on the services offered by the government. To become COMPLETELY self-sufficient is my ultimate goal.

    I have added a couple of your links to my favourites – need time later to browse and absorb… and I look forward, with great anticipation, to your future blog posts – they will certainly make the vastness of the internet not so intimidating and lonely 🙂

    May I post your link on my blog?

    Congratulations again – very impressive.
    ((hugs))

    P.S. Thanks for the info – I’ll check out WordPress – I’m not sure about Blogger.
