Inside-outside-in…

Yes, these thoughts have occured to me often.

We can keep diggin into the small, and we can keep diggin out into the big.

The similarities are just too big. There are very clear patterns. Lungs, trees & their roots, galaxies, eyes, etc.

Do cells in our body suspect they are inside a living body? Does an ant on an elephant’s back know he is walking on a living “floor”? Do humans know they are walking on a living planet? Inside a living universe?

We tend to think that things stop at us. We are the smartest intelligent life-form and so on. And little by little we realize that ourangatans can solve some problems quicker than humans can. And that plants have 3 times more genes than we do, and maybe a whole lot more awareness, and that crowes know what they know, and that dolphins can manage telepathy…

Maybe all beings think they are “at the top”.

Looking for ‘intelligent life’ may be looking for the same thing twice : if it’s alive it’s intelligent, and if it’s intelligent it’s alive…?
