A quick note about approach and audiences;
I attempt to communicate in a way that both the rationally
inclined and the woo woo inclined can both, perhaps join
in the same conversation.
Frankly, as a species we do not know whether some life form
or sentience has co-evolved with us or not.
In my view, this certainly seems possible.
But that doesn't mean there's anything of necessity "mystical"
Our Mitochondria were once bacteria that invaded our cells.
We have once 'foreign' flora and fauna that is in our intestines,
that we now depend upon.
I was talking to Pigs yesterday, and he showed me an article
about how an ancient virus invaded our brains and is now part
of how they function.
Even with 'mundane science' we are close to being 'symbiotic'
or 'colony creatures' as it is.
That it could run deeper than that would be no surprise at all.
Now, as a former practicing 'shaman', I have much more direct
experience than that.. but I don't claim to perfectly understand
what's going on there...
that's a nod to the more mystically inclined..
I truly don't have a horse in this race anymore.. I just want to
occasionally promote thinking that is more liberating, and helps
us to not be stuck in perceptual silos.
