Book Club Discussion Part 1 of THE BOND: “The Superorganism”

In Part 1 of “The Bond, Connecting Through The Space Between Us” – Lynne McTaggart sets out to demonstrate how we exist in relationship to each other via our bonds as well as with the universe itself. Beginning with an account of the scientific explorations on the observer affect pursued by Wheeler and others, Lynne McTaggart challenges our thinking about where we end and the universe begins.  This is indeed a great struggle for advanced meditators who are able to shift their state of awareness from oneness (I am) to interconnectedness (we are) and back again to the state of ‘I am.’   “The Bond” makes the case for expanding our ability to think from the perspective of a unified ‘we’ versus a solitary ‘I.’

This section of the book also opens an interesting discussion on the topic of genetics and how genetics alone does not shape our life or destiny.  Rather, it is our positive or negative environments as much as anything else that determine who we are.

Lynne McTaggart’s account of the theories of the Russian scientist Alexander Chizhoevosky in 1921 was most fascinating.  He had proposed that many of the world’s upheavals in history were the result of solar activity and solar flares.  At the time his theories were not well accepted as political regimes preferred to think of a revolution as the result of the people rising up against the status quo.   The poor man was sent to the northern reaches of Russia, where he could not expand his theories. However, 30 years later, his work was revisited by scientists who felt he was quite possibly right after all. It turns out that there is a correlation between the sun’s activity and many social phenomenon.  We are linked to solar weather and all kinds of geo-magnetic activity of the solar system manifesting as increases in crime, heart attacks, car accidents, mental illness symptoms flaring up, and swings in the stock market to name a few.

In the final section of Part 1 Lynne McTaggart discusses our shared circuitry and how the emotions of another may be mirrored in ourselves via an empathic response.  We can relate to others in distress because we put ourselves in their shoes and literally feel their pain as if it were ours.  Repatterners, who have felt the physical pain of others, will find this section fascinating and informative.

Her conclusion is that we are hardwired to connect with others to survive and be our true selves.  We are born to play as a team.  Our tendency toward competition is self-destructive, and harms us more than we realize.  We have the predisposition to be collaborative with no inter-conflict and in that state for all of us to flourish.
