Entropy vs Syntropy

Perhaps my greatest frustration in life is falling short of describing the pure magic that’s woven into the fabric of all creation.

But, here’s another go.

We live in two seemingly disparate and conflicting worlds that coexists in perfect harmony at the very same time. Except, the governance of one of these worlds — logic — cannot see or grasp the other one — magic — and so for as long as we’re governed by logic our understanding is incomplete.

Let me explain.

Entropy is the 2nd law of thermodynamics — itself a thought product of logic — that tells us that this universe gravitates and evolves in an ever-increasing amount of complexity which shows up as an ever-increasing amount of chaos that eventually results in “things” dying off.

The premise that underpins all of this is linear time and space — Newtonian physics basically — all of creation evolving from a beginning of time to the end of time.

So it goes with any star, any canyon, any tree, and even any human life. This is entropy, this is both logic and logical, it’s observable, and it’s not wrong. It’s just an incomplete understanding.

Syntropy — the opposite pole of entropy — is not well understood yet by humanity, primarily because science hasn’t quite caught up to it yet and coming from the religion of logic we don’t really accept (i.e. can’t see or grasp) anything unless it’s been published in a scientific journal.

In syntropy there’s a field of intelligence with infinite possibilities, and what we perceive with logic as ever-increasing complexity and chaos is in fact an unfolding of ever-increasing dimensions and order.

The only real reason we see it as complexity and chaos is because we don’t yet fully understand it.

The premise that underpins syntropy is that there’s no such thing as time and space — Quantum physics basically — and all of creation is unfolding simultaneously in the only moment that ever exists: the “now.”

Right, we — coming from logic — can only call that magic as this makes no logical sense whatsoever.

Now, I realize all of this is enough to blow anyone’s mind, especially since the intelligence of the mind — our neocortex — cannot go beyond logic.

But, here’s the only thing you need to acknowledge to go on the syntropy discovery journey. To drive our car, we don’t need to know the inner workings of the internal combustion engine. We just need to accept it works, and in fact we do each time we step in our car, start the engine, and drive off.

In life, each moment constitutes a choice whether we perceive things through the lens of entropy or syntropy. We can even learn to switch these lenses at will; however, for humanity entropy is for now the default lens through which we perceive life.

In every moment, we can consciously seek to see the syntropy in what’s unfolding before us, and when we become masters we can directly affect this field of infinite possibilities with ever-increasing precision so what we wish to see unfold actually does.

This is the next step in evolution for humanity, and the final thing to know is that we access syntropy through the intelligence of the heart.

Magic resides in the heart, literally.

DM me if you’re ready to become a master of syntropy.
