Cosmic Person

Context is Everything

posting by Jana

Once again, it’s been a long time between drinks. I find that PhD thesis writing, and the various articles and other writing that accompanies it, taps me out in terms of words. Each week I think about writing something about co-flourishing … and each week goes by with only my good intentions to show for it. And the guilt :(

Today I resolve to post, even if it is only words I’ve already written elsewhere on this website. Context for the Cosmic Person is on my mind a lot lately as I finish the final substantive chapter of my thesis which is an introduction to the Cosmic Person as a legal subject and the effect I envision this embodied, embedded and entangled legal person might have within the law.

Why Cosmic? It’s all about context:

The movie made me think about 4 characteristics of the Cosmic Person

  • connectedness: it suggests a radically de-personalised sense of being part of the whole and I find this liberating
  • subjectivity: the frame of reference changes - one is a subjective part of the universe rather than (or as well as) a particular individual
  • communion: the story is about the bond of all things being based on the shared energy and material of the "great flaring forth" (aka the Big Bang)
  • differentiation: these two realities - communion and differentiation - are somehow no longer dualistic; being unique configurations of the same energy and material means that both communion and differentiation are equally and concomitantly true
