That's a pretty bold statement as there are some really awesome metaphors in nature but it makes the title shorter. If I were ever asked what do you think natures best metaphor is I would have to say that it is this one, "The flight of the Monarchs"

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/nature/jou ... flies.html

In Greek literature and even in the bible you read of the ages, successive ages as in the Golden age followed by the Silver age, then Bronze and Iron. In the literature we are presently in the Iron age and somehow we are going to be magically transported back to the Golden age. I think the succession of these ages is a little unusual as you would think that if we descended successively one age at a time we would have to ascend successively one age at a time as well and not a big jump back to the Golden age from the Iron age. This metaphor of the Monarchs is a beautiful illustration of that same succession. The monarchs go north for three steps and then one giant leap back towards their home to the south. Even if you don't see the spiritual side of this migration, the literal story by itself is absolutely amazing and you owe it to yourself to watch this documentary if you haven't already.

After several years of looking at this awe inspiring show of nature I could finally see the spiritual truth that this metaphor is pointing to but you'll have to bare with me as I need to connect a few dots. Whenever someone acquires a new knowledge or understanding of something or new technology or whatever else, he's faced with the question, do I give this away freely to everyone for the betterment of all mankind or do I keep this knowledge or understanding secret until I can use it to better my own situation, do I try to sell it. To give it away for everyone's benefit is a herd mentality and an example of love for your fellowman, it is cooperation. To use it to raise yourself above your fellowman is the birth of predation and one has to turn away from the love, even if just a little bit, to justify his/her actions. With each step deeper into predation the love wanes cooler and cooler until you get to where we are today where the love has grown cold for most. This is competition at it's extreme and it will be our end if we don't do a miraculous turn around just as with the Monarchs. Just as with the butterfly we will have to go through a change, only then will we have wings to fly. With that change we will return to the love in the greatest migration the world has ever seen.

The song by Bob Marley "Exodus" comes to mind.

Do you have a favorite metaphor?

Thanks for the reply evil and btw thanks for countless posts and videos in past, sometimes when you're not sure what to do with an hour I find myself here and have read many of your posts.
:cheers:

In regard to this thread; having walked away from religion I tend to dismiss a lot of the Christian narrative of your video. However, I do agree it messes with theory of evolution, that theory never has come together in my head, a little like throwing a shit load of paint up in the air and having it land looking like a Rembrandt or some other masterpiece, just isn't going to happen by accident in billions of years. :flop:

The one guy says it's symbolic of resurrection, but as I mentioned in earlier post I think the resurrection is BS, it symbolizes rebirth not resurrection. :think:

Hey 1ufos, Loving al your posts so far.

Talking about love, great thing in nature
I like too ad this one as one of my favorite metaphors:

Image



Manfred Clynes discovered that PHI is related to love. Emotions are besides experiences also waves.

We can see this in the way we hug our family and friends. The maximum pressure we exert while hugging will take place at the exact moment of the golden ratio. In comparison of time the hug lasts.

Image


So this is my example of sacred geometry in nature :)
