The individual lost its vital independence in the Devonian age

Seed beings

when time becomes real-time
There are little animals, each a single cell, who live happy chemicals lives, continuously creating amino acids, busily building the tiny stones of life, millions and millions of them in a few short moments.
Then comes dryness, a period of shrinking into spores, each one into thousands of spores - seed beings. Although seemingly dead they are merely in a waiting state of cryptobiosis or suspension of life, totally dried out. In this state of suspension outside of time a seed being can spend hundreds of years. It can travel, carried by winds, even through freezing winters, yes, even driven by solar winds across empty space, till the time comes when the sun shines on it again. Then, a drop of water added, and the old happy activity starts once more in a hundred new beings, faithful copies of the old.
instant soul
Psychologically speaking, we humans are also seed beings: souls asleep, frozen, desiccated, soul beings waiting for a drop of bliss, of ananda to awaken, to come alive. As soon as some joyful event happens, even a minor one, it permits us to enter real life, real time, ecstacy and instant soul that we are; in a few seconds a thousand blissful experiences occur, blooming activity starts, intense soul bliss, till again we fall into that state of psychic suspension we call ordinary life.

The superbrain


The first of the great syntheses on our planet took place 2,000 million years ago in the Precambrian age when a living cell united with another living cell to form the first multicellular being.
The second great synthesis took place in the Devonian age more than 1,000 million years later when multicellular insects cooperated to form insect states like those of the termites, the ants, the bees and the wasps.
The first synthesis was physical: cell was added to cell to form a single psychical body, in which each individual cell became highly specialised in its particular activity in that body.
The second synthesis was not somatic; each ant, each bee preserved its own independent physical body. The union was hormonal and effected by hormonal-chemical exchanges between the independent bodies so that they came to constitute a single vital being. What the individual lost was its vital independence, for each one now played a vitally specialised role: the egg producer, the water carrier, the soldier, the worker, the queen and the drone. Each had to play its specific role so that the hive could live and continously renew itself.
The third great synthesis is taking place in our time, and in it we are all participating. It is the synthesis of living mind, in which all the individual minds of man lose their capacity to function separately and alone. No human child could become a human being, a partaker in human culture, if it were left entirely to itself.
The communality of mind we call culture, and until our time cultures were still to be found in the plural. There were many on earth. But what we are now witnessing is the birth of a common culture for the whole of mankind. There is no longer an Arab chemistry or an Indian psychology or a Chinese astronomy. There is only one body of science from Tokyo to Cape Town, from Los Angeles to Moscow. And thousands of biologically independent individual scientists are forming together that great invisible body, the scientific community, which to their mind is as real as the anthill is to the ant.
This third great synthesis is still in the making. It is not yet accomplished; is has not reached adulthood. It is flexing its invisible muscles and slowly building its nervous body of electronic communication, its memory archives of electronic tapes, and it has started to create its own language, [...]
Now our children are still little beggars, searching hopefully in those dustbins of culture we call schools. But before very long failthful and skilled electronic teachers will present each child with the riches of his very own individual cultural kingdom. It is on the summits of this third great synthesis of life that man will really become homo sapiens. Then he will stand on the solid foundations of a cultural past, surrounded by the electronically accumulated and organised knowledge of the billions of men who have lived on earth before him. Thus he will be able to choose freely his very own cultural contribution to that great invisible hive: the superbrain of humanity.
Only then will each man attain to his luminous indiviudal summit, his own divinity of knowledge, bliss, love and consciousness, because each man will not only be aware of his own little biological body, but will be able to see with the awareness of the whole, to act with the knowledge of the whole, and to enjoy the bliss of the whole. It is in this single whole that each will find his soul and his immortality as well as a physical cradle for birth after birth after birth.
Life’s longing for the shining heights of being will have taken a new step forward, and when man then looks back towards his beginning as a unicellular being in some forgotten sea he may well feel that the most difficult part of his advance towards omnipotence and omniscience is already behind him.
He will have taken the greatest hurdle in the course of his evolution towards perfection, the hurdle of the ego, the ahamkara, the feeling of being a separate isolated being in a hostile universe, and will have gained the new security of being a perennial element in the conscious superorganism of planetary man.


=1 "Equals One" was a journal edited by Medhananda and Maude Pickett Smith in the early days of Auroville. See "=1 history". 

“Essentially there is but one single true reason for living: it is to know oneself. We are here to learn - to learn what we are, why we are here, and what we have to do.”
“To exceed ego and be our true self, to be aware of our real being, to possess it, to possess a real delight of being, is therefore the ultimate meaning of our life here; it is the concealed sense of our individual and terrestrial existence.”

The uncertainty principles of Heisenberg and Hurd
Benjamin Schonthal at The Immanent FramePerfect knowledge was impossible, Heisenberg theorized, because scientists changed the quantum universe through the very act of measuring it. Observers could not watch the universe voyeuristically, as though from the sidelines. To sight quantum reality was to alter it.
Beyond Religious Freedom: The New Global Politics of Religion introduces something like an uncertainty principle into the targeting of religion in international relations. In a manner not dissimilar to Heisenberg, Hurd argues that, in the process of singling out religion for support or censure, governments, lawmakers, advocacy groups and others alter the complex field of social relations that they purport to manage. They change religion through the process of sighting it. [...]
Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle points to the limits of scientific observation; and to some extent, Hurd’s book does as well. What Heisenberg said of conventional language and sub-atomic processes, Hurd might also say of regulatory language and social processes: regulatory language is incapable of describing the complex processes occurring within societies. [...] For Hurd, more ominous implications follow from the distorting effects of expert knowledge. In Hurd’s narrative, expert religion and governed religion appear to be changing society in alarming ways. These forms of knowledge are actively remaking the social universe into a place of governed religion. And this remaking, Hurd persuasively argues, frequently increases the potentials for strife and conflict, while also diminishing the possibilities for reconciliation, understanding, or mutuality.

46th All Orissa Sri Aurobindo Study Circle Conference to be held btwn 4th -7th April 2016 at Matrubhaban, Cuttack http://auroramirabilis.blogspot.in/2016/03/april-2016-conference-at-matrubhaban.html?m=1 …

Sri Aurobindo. “As the servant and disciple of the Master he (a Sadhaka) has no business with pride and egoism because all is done for him from above, so also ...
The true leader of men must radiate the double perfection of (1) union with the Supreme and (2) its universalised individuality that must radiate from him Oneness with the Universe and its Beings. This experience culminates his Spiritual experience of Oneness with all creatures and his Oneness with the Eternal. He will lead the human race forward Spiritually through his Influence and large world action. He becomes a light and power of the Truth to which he has climbed and a means of others’ ascension. The path finder or the path-leader is one who has realised the Truth and is able to communicate the light and the experience. He is a strong guide and instructor who takes by the hand and carries over difficult passages and points out the way. According to his place, he would take equal delight to rule and lead all those who are behind him in Consciousness and subordinate himself to all those who are ahead of him in cognition. 
Thus the triple status of womanhood to know God’s love utterly, slavehood to the Divine Master and Lord concealed in all humanity and discipleship to the Supreme from whom he receives all immaterial and material things constantly, become the secret of true life and is extended as true leadership.

History of Auroville edited by Gilles Guigan

www.auroville.org/contents/3981
Mar 18, 2016 - Books 1 to 3 February 2016 version Edited by Gilles Guigan Auroville Archives Foreword to this History of Auroville 
On 14th August 2014, it has been 50 years that the Sri Aurobindo Society (SAS), whose President was Mother, took the decision to build a new town, which She later named Auroville. Mother’s known words on Auroville date from mid-1965 to mid-1973 – an 8-year period...
Mother’s most interesting conversations on Auroville are definitely in Her Agenda, but they are drowned among many other topics and many of Her other interesting words are missing. The problems with The Mother on Auroville and the CWM are that many of Her words are also missing and that, as these compilations are thematic instead of chronological, it is very difficult to understand how the project evolved along the years – which it did. 

Savitra’s 1974 out-of-print “Auroville, the first 6 years – 1968-1974” is the only two records of what was happening on the Auroville plateau during these 6 years.(1) It is definitely very interesting but mentions very few of Mother’s words and of what was happening in the offices of the SAS and of Roger. There isn’t any publication reporting on what was taking place in these offices.

This compilation can only be limited to Mother’s known words because many interesting words of Hers were not recorded. There is no record of Her conversations with Navajata, with Her son André, with Her grand daughter Françoise (Pournapréma)(2) and with many other disciples with whom She spoke of Auroville. The notes Roger kept were very succinct and pertained only to a short period of time. This is unfortunate because we are missing very interesting conversations. 

Our aim with this document is primarily to present all Her known words on Auroville in their context in order to enable readers to better understand Her intentions with this Auroville venture and how She went about launching it. It includes also many general and other messages (such as Darshan messages) which were destined to all disciples.
...

This compilation proves that, from 1912 onwards (that it two years prior their first meeting), Sri Aurobindo and Mother spoke of the need to give birth to an ideal/perfect society at a certain stage of humanity’s evolution. Mother described it in “A Dream” which She published in 1954 but wrote: “The earth is certainly not ready to realise such an ideal, for mankind does not yet possess sufficient knowledge to understand and adopt it nor the conscious force that is indispensable in order to execute it; that is why I call it a dream.” Hence, the question were always: When? Where? On which basis to launch it? How to secure enough land for it? How to attract the required human and material resources?... Mother was waiting for inner and outer signs telling Her that time had come to launch this endeavour. 

Because of its comprehensiveness, this compilation is not easily readable; it is a research document to be used by people seriously interested in learning about Auroville’s background and early years – and maybe in writing about it. The editor welcomes any addition as well as corrections of mistakes or simple inaccuracies. This has been a collective work from the start and has to remain such. 

This work is dedicated to Sri Aurobindo, the Mother and their dream of an ideal/perfect society developing an ideal place/town/city for itself as an example that should spread and be reproduced elsewhere. 
______

(1) W.M. Sullivan’s “The Dawning of Auroville” has also many very interesting entries and covers a longer period. 
(2) Mother’s other grand daughter, Janine Panier, doesn’t seem to have been involved in the Auroville project.
