@Lark: I don't know if you're an idealist/metaphysical person who believes the physical world and the spiritual world (or parts of them) are divorced from one another. I do not for the most part. That is what I was trying to address. I know you see the interconnection between the heart, mind, and society/finances etc, but for me I must admit it is about other things too. I like ideas in transhumanism for example and believe that as we evolve we'll probably begin to recognize non-human persons and treat inanimate objects (like the earth, etc) as deserving respect. I think this is the only way to create a truly sustainable universe. Also, I suspect that we may disagree on particular moral issues. For example, I think good and evil tend to be experience related and that oftentimes "evil" though not being necessary helps us to grow and I see the universe/god as being beyond good and evil and it allows bad things to happen not intentionally, but because it is not aware of the consequences. These new relationships are allowed to continue and the impact felt so that a new holistic way of being that is more representative can be achieved. Once this happens the cycle starts all over again. This is why I like ideas like retrocausality to reference the past discussion we had on memory. There are certain interpretations of quantum physics that allow for cancelling of information retrocausally. I think this can become the metaphorical heaven where every tear is dried etc. Then again I come from a Christian background as well so that particular symbolism holds a special appeal for me that it may not for others.
To OP sorry for derailing your thread. It seemed like you were done with it though :p
