Is love the metaphysical gravity that is the core attribute of life’s meaning, coherence, and creative power?

“Buckminster Fuller, beloved American architect, systems theorist, polymath, poet once wrote, “love is metaphysical gravity.” To some this is a statement that lands naturally, for others it’s an idea that seems alien and confusing. After all, the meaning of metaphysics has changed tremendously in the last few hundred years, and we don’t really know much about gravity either. To make a statement equating something so deeply personal that our motivations are shaped by a longing for it from the morning we are born with something as abstract and impersonal as our grade school lessons about Newton’s law of universal gravitation seems, to some, at first absurd. This disconnect is because our culture doesn’t tend to cultivate awareness about gravity as much as, perhaps, we should.”

洞察

“Transformation will take place through a redesign of our personal habits and our information ecology. By reimagining our social architecture, we can reshape our metaphysical reality, our habits, which will reform our digital systems and physical architecture. We must give ourselves permission to redesign our social systems to build a regenerative world.”

達賴喇嘛也說愛是道。作爲一種感覺,它使生活變得輕鬆!

儘管在生活之前,人類往往會在一切事物中尋找科學證據。所以這裏有一個有趣的思想實驗:我們可以在人類的心理狀態中測量什麼來發現愛就是這樣?也許腦電波、能量水平……並將其與當今典型人類的平均情緒/狀態進行比較。如果愛情在圖表中獲勝,讓我們將普遍的愛情視爲一種社會規範,一種生活價值。

Well Dalai Lama also says that love is the way. As a feeling it deffo makes life easy!

Humans tend to look for a scientific proof in everything though before living it. So here is a fun thought experiment: what we could measure in human mental states to see that love is the way? Perhaps brain waves, energy levels, ... and compare that with the average emotion/state of a typical human these days. If love wins in charts, lets embrace universal love as a social norm, as a value to live by.
