The greatest minds of human history, the scientist and philosophers, after all of their contribution, their theories, their uncovering of the mathematics behind Universe, almost unanimously arrived at the place of recognition that there is a force, a glue, an unmeasurable, unquantifiable something, that holds Universe together. This something is so beyond our capacity to truly know, that to name is itself is to evoke a kind of hubris, a righteousness that becomes our undoing. 

Perhaps it is our hubris as humans to think we can ever solve everything, answer every single question, break everything down into discreet parts. Upload human consciousness to a machine.

Perhaps the great forever-unsolvable mystery is designed with the wisdom to keep us humble.

The very moment we think we have it, we have solved it..wack…back on our knees. Not this..not that…

Beauty reduces us – reminds us that we are mere piles of co-ordinated atoms..a part of a larger whole. Grief, tragedy, loss…does the same. No money, no amount of power can reverse loss.

To be held in love, by another, is one of the most extraordinary gifts given. Love as pure, absent all expectations or demands. Held in love gives us courage beyond our own capacity.

To hold another in love, to hold an idea in love, to hold the Earth in love…when we do this, when we join with love as metaphysical gravity, as the glue, the field of all creation, we partner with creation itself.

About Christine McDougall



As the Founder and Chief Steward of Syntropic.world – Christine works with leaders and enterprises globally who have a commitment to being the pioneers of enterprise change. Christine has the ability to completely re-imagine business, its role in our world, and its potential for a future for all humans. She experiences a deeper level of truth than most through applying synergetics (Buckminster Fuller’s anticipatory design science) and the working laws of Universe to enterprise design and human co-ordination. She has a way of articulating this so others can see it as well. Christine questions the most basic assumptions that drive our complex systems and can map that back to what is needed today. She is committed to the creation of Syntropic enterprises as ubiquitous.
