Today, scientists tell us that there are four basic forces in nature. These are gravity, which makes the Earth go ‘round and holds the planets together; electromagnetism, which is responsible for light, heat, electricity, all the things that we experience in daily life as energy; the strong interaction which holds the nucleus of an atom together; and the weak interaction which is responsible for transmutation of elements and radioactive decay.
Everything in material creation comes from these four forces. But these aren’t merely forces–these are fields of intelligence as well, because the ultimate ground of these forces, the unified field, is a field of infinite, unbounded intelligence, and is therefore the total potential of natural law.
The field is organizing everything in creation: The movement of galaxies, the movement of stars, the rotation of the earth, the cycles of the seasons, the biological rhythms of our bodies, birds migrating at the right season to the right place, fish returning to their spawning grounds, the biological rhythms of nature as found in flowers, vegetation, and animals. It is literally a field of infinite organizing power. It can do an infinite number of things all at the same time and then correlate them with each other.
Even our human body is a field of infinite organizing power. There are 6 trillion reactions occurring in the human body every second, and every one of them is correlated with every single other reaction; every single other biochemical event knows what other biochemical event is occurring in the body.
So, inherent in the field itself is infinite organizing power. To know that field intimately, to have experiential knowledge of that field as one’s own nature, is to automatically embody the infinite organizing power of the field.
