Is love the metaphysical gravity that is the core attribute of life’s meaning, coherence, and creative power?

“Buckminster Fuller, beloved American architect, systems theorist, polymath, poet once wrote, “love is metaphysical gravity.” To some this is a statement that lands naturally, for others it’s an idea that seems alien and confusing. After all, the meaning of metaphysics has changed tremendously in the last few hundred years, and we don’t really know much about gravity either. To make a statement equating something so deeply personal that our motivations are shaped by a longing for it from the morning we are born with something as abstract and impersonal as our grade school lessons about Newton’s law of universal gravitation seems, to some, at first absurd. This disconnect is because our culture doesn’t tend to cultivate awareness about gravity as much as, perhaps, we should.”

洞察

“Transformation will take place through a redesign of our personal habits and our information ecology. By reimagining our social architecture, we can reshape our metaphysical reality, our habits, which will reform our digital systems and physical architecture. We must give ourselves permission to redesign our social systems to build a regenerative world.”

— Stephen Bau

达赖喇嘛也说爱是道。作为一种感觉,它使生活变得轻松!

尽管在生活之前,人类往往会在一切事物中寻找科学证据。所以这里有一个有趣的思想实验:我们可以在人类的心理状态中测量什么来发现爱就是这样?也许脑电波、能量水平……并将其与当今典型人类的平均情绪/状态进行比较。如果爱情在图表中获胜,让我们将普遍的爱情视为一种社会规范,一种生活价值。

Well Dalai Lama also says that love is the way. As a feeling it deffo makes life easy!

Humans tend to look for a scientific proof in everything though before living it. So here is a fun thought experiment: what we could measure in human mental states to see that love is the way? Perhaps brain waves, energy levels, ... and compare that with the average emotion/state of a typical human these days. If love wins in charts, lets embrace universal love as a social norm, as a value to live by.
