HUMANITY: THE REBLENDING ORGAN OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM 

As biosphere, earth, and humanity formed, biological life digestively refined and transpired to solar realms

HUMANS, having emerged and arisen by way of co-evolutionary processes conserved in phenomena, are today neocortically fit to process information through the instincts of science, art, and religion. Objectively speaking, this praxis of refining and reblending energy relative to mass is the axis on which the natural sciences and humanities are coalescing, where a more confident understanding of the human function will gradually transcend synthetic metaphysics. The following affirmation declares humanity's role in sustaining this critical phase of co-evolutionary processes. 

For nearly two centuries, proponents of taxonomical classification have assimilated an objective understanding of naturally complex adaptive systems. Arcing from Hermetic percipience to Greek rationality to Modern epistemology, human somatic moving-motive-mental brains (science-art-religion respectively) have all but completed the well-recorded gradient of galactic, solar, and biospheric reciprocities.  Human neural cognitive development, with its unique psyvolving psychic properties, sits exigently at the crux of fulfilling the earth’s biological experience. Our participation is being signaled, requiring us to reciprocally fructify its potential.

At the edge of human biological transmutation, finer vibration rates normalize the entropy of biological existence.  Specifically, autonomic-neural processes—refined by way of three nutrients: minerals, air, and impressions—adapt finer vibration rates of thought and sensation.  Such intrinsic guiding principles acknowledge that humans phylogenetically obtain knowledge and experiential understanding through the transduction of coarse somatic sensations in order that our adaptive latent capacities may psyvolve and viscerally regulate the finer vibrations of our psychic organs, namely: self-awareness, impartial conscience and objective reason.

In sum, atomic, homologously evolved, humans refine information reciprocally.  The equation reads thus: The movement of mass by energy, relative to the shaping of energy by mass, normalizes the entropy of existence relative to the intropy of experience.  In spirit, what we call religion is potentially re-cognized as the embodied transpiration of our biological experience toward solar realms.

Human epistemological somatic endeavors have largely crested. A reciprocally based education is now required to experientially evolve our psychic organs.
