Empowerment versus Natural Law
Some that are initially exposed to the concept of empowerment dismiss
it disdainfully as "magic" that negates "natural law". What is being
proposed here in terms of empowerment is not a wish to dispose of natural law, because
that CONVENTION serves as a great, stable foundation for the forms, structures and activities in the
physical universe. Natural law is wondrous in its design and scope of
possible developments, and many scientists are continually amazed and compelled to study aspects
of it for a lifetime.
However, many materialists inadvertently think that nothing can suspend or
override physical law, and this is essentially a materialistic philosophy. Yet, if this were true, then we—including the very
creator of natural law—must have surrendered to it and must live throughout eternity under it,
live at the effect of it. Why, we may ask, would the creator agency ever do such a
thing as create a system that could control or oppress even itself?
It is a fallacy that "natural law" is ordinate or supreme because
intelligence and will ARE ordinate, and the way the universe works is
SUBORDINATE to this intelligence and will.. There is no larger-than-God
natural law. Our concept of natural law is based on our current
experience of it, and is not only incomplete but is ONLY an extraction based
on our current experience of it. We cannot arbitrarily override it; no one
can, but if the material universe is a projection from the collective mind,
that mind in unison CAN override it and even change it if that is so desired
This elevation of natural law to being absolute or supreme also makes technology—the
incremental solving of problems to improve life within natural law through techniques or
technical machines and tools—the answer to every material challenge, and
thus also our ultimate process for progress, ergo our salvation.
The author's vision put forth is that in a healed reality where we have
empowerment, we will rely upon and use natural law unless it is too
limiting and we are motivated to override it. Remember that for anything significant it will take the
agreement and probably the involvement of all the other human family members
Constrained by common sense, we
will in freedom have great latitude to conform to OR override natural law.
It would seem that the overriding of natural law should never be capricious.
Every human being has a natural and legitimate desire for
empowerment, not being TOTALLY subject to or the victim of natural law. It is the
thinking of this site that natural law is
not absolute, and it can even be changed if someone comes up with desirable
improvements and the citizens of the universe agree to it.
