Exploring the Social Imagination

Evolution is a Lie and Why imagined borders are Necessary in the Social Imagiantion!

Do you know the expression, "Kill two birds with one stone"? Well, this post is an attempt to do just that. And, one might even consider this post about three and not two  if we include social reality: evolution, borders and social reality.

How is evolution a lie in the social imagination? First, its a lie because reality exists only in the social imagination. Our reality, our 'social' reality is information that comes into our mind via light particles entering the eye transformed into chemicals read electronically by the brain. Now that process alone is simply mechanical so what makes social reality? Content, context... meaning processed by the brain and read by the mind, which projects a social imagination - social reality.

So, how does that make evolution a lie? Evolution if we take it seriously is only about the mechanics of the flesh and therefore has nothing to do with meaning and certainly nothing to do with answering the ultimate question, why and what for is all this about.

Life is energy+matter+ information. Information has a source and it is not only instrumental but informative in ways that are abstract - information is shared meaning not just instruction. If it were just instruction we would be plants. But, even plants as it is now being researched share meaning as do even simple celled organisms like the amoeba which has been observed using 'midwives' in cell division.

The simple cell is much more complex and the environment necessary for it even more complex. What came first... the simple cell or the complex environment for its existence to even take place?

British bio-chemist and author Michael Denton said this," Although the tiniest bacterial cells are incredibly small, each is in effect a veritable micro-miniaturized factory containing thousands of exquisitely designed pieces of intricate molecular machinery made up of 100, 000, 000,000 atoms far more complicated than any machine built by man and absolutely without parallel in the non-living world".

Not only is that an important an argument for creation, it also tells us that within systems borders are necessary for function. There is no run amok or basic rhyme of reason... there is distinction and purpose which was designed and is directed. A system does not function unless all parts are present simultaneously.

Now, you might think saying that and using the above as an argument for creation goes against the social imagination. If we are just imagining all this then creation is just our imagination. Yes, you are kind of right. But, whose imagination is it as all info for our imagination is coming from somewhere and someone. In fact, we would have no imagination at all if there was no source for our imagination.

Oh, the screaming... What about math and science? Sorry, but both math and science are only that which we make them out to be.  Both math and science  'appear' in our mind the same way in which all information comes to our mind described above.  Processed information being sent for purpose which is for us (allows us) to make sense of our being as in having meaning for us in a social reality and one could say gives us meaning to be in the social imagination.

  1. To kill two birds with one stone means to take care of a couple of problems or dismiss them. This post dismisses the lie of evolution in the flesh... the real evolution is in the mind as it receives and embraces information that does not lie about the Creator of and source of our information our social imagination!
