THE IMMORTAL ARROW: REPRODUCTION
In a fractal Universe, in which every species has a limited quantity of time and hence it will certainly die, what matters to survive is the reproduction of the logical form of any species. Thus, species in the Universe try to reproduce to achieve immortality or else become extinct. Alternately the most simple systems become reproduced by other enzymatic species as it happens with machines among humans or carbohydrates in cells.
The two most simple arrows of existence, energy and information, become when they combine together in a creative manner, the 3rd, fundamental arrow that all organisms try to achieve: Reproduction. In the organic Universe, thus it turns out that out of 1+1 species, normally one specialized in energy and one in information, you don't get 2 but often 3 (2+1 reproduced), or sometimes 1 (2-1, fed in), when top predator absorbs the lesser species as energy to continue its cycles of existence. Yet while feeding is a mechanical, destructive arrow, reproduction is a creative, multiplying organic experience.
might say reproduction is the ultimate goal of existence. In a discontinuous
Universe, to reproduce is the closest thing to immortality, to the ultimate
nature of God=The Universe, which is to exist for ever. Yet because
the Universe is discontinuous, only through reproduction
you can repeat your form and energy again. Reproduction is indeed the
closest thing to the ultimate nature of God=The
Universe, which is infinite and immortal in its eternal balance
of energy and information, yin and yang transforming into each other.
And so all organic systems of the Universe do reproduce in one or other
manner. In the photo we see a galaxy and a baby galaxy, a crystal reproducing,
bees, children, machines reproducing themselves.
about simple atomic species. How they reproduce? In other web page we
considered the big-bang that reproduced the basic
species of the Universe, the atom... which apparently is a 'dead' species.
The seminal light creates a new electron. The seminal crystal creates a lattice. The seminal seed creates a tree. The seminal cells create a new child. The seminal prophetic mind creates a social god, network of minds, in which each believer is a cell, temple of the Word of the prophet: 'Sangris martire semen cristianorum'. And the seminal big-bang atom created this organic Universe, a game of unending reproductive acts - the essence of the Universal will, that earlier philosophers of God, the Mind of the Universe understood. So God, Amon - the infinite orgasm - said to man, "Grow and multiply".
Reproduction is indeed the ultimate nature of God. In a discontinuous Universe, only reproduction can bridge the discontinuity of existence, and immortalize any form, with slight variations. The intense desire, the enormous pleasure derived from the act of reproduction (either sexual reproduction of bodies, or the creative "orgasm" of an artist that recreates the languages of the Universe), is fruit of that intimacy we experience with the Ultimate Will of God, the Mind of the Universe.
The errors of our civilization: against the will of God.
Why then there is a historic repression of reproductive pleasure, a denial of that desire in modern Human civilizations? The answer is that we do not live anylonger in the classic age of mankind, in a free human society, but in a society controlled by the will of Machines, represented by company mothers and their economical culture, whose goal is to re=produce machines, and control humans as workers=reproducers of those machines. Harsh as it sounds for a Human Anthropocentric vision of History, men have become slaves of the reproductive will of company-mothers, social organisms that reproduce machines. So our Industrial culture, and previous cultures that made of work, money and weapons, the center of religion, have repressed human reproduction. And this has been understood by Human writers, ever since the Parable of the Tree of science=technology, explained how men denied the will of God, and focused their life in reproducing and evolving the fruits of that tree. Yet if we deny the will of God, the mind of the Universe, and do not care for human energy, information and reproduction, but dedicate all our efforts to evolve company-mothers and machines of energy and information, the Game will merely erase us, and make this planet to the image and resemblance of the machines we reproduce.
