So we have a new axiom: What is most systemic is most local. The deepest systems we enact are woven into the fabric of everyday life, down to the most minute detail.
This is so important for us to understand. We, every one of us, may be able to change the world, but only as we experience more and more of the whole in the present. this is the 'evolving consciousness' that Bohm said was necessary to appreciate the implicate order. Now I see that it's also the cultivation of awareness to 'see the absolute in the manifest', as the buddhists would say.
