The Mesopotamians may have had Seven Seas, but for me the forces that shape our lives can be summarized by the Four Cs.
Physicists also recognise four forces that shape the universe – being electromagnetism, gravity, and the strong and weak nuclear forces. Important though they no doubt are, how do they help us make sense of the everyday world around us?
No, for me, serenity comes from allowing the Four Cs to wash over me. I think the physicists should dip their TOE in my Cs.
What are these four principles?
Complexity, Change, Counterpoint and Cyclicality.
The more you explore anything the more detail there is, it never stays the same, there is often contradiction, symmetry or both, yet somehow, inexplicably, you will always find yourself back where you started.
Don’t worry though. Sit back. Relax. That’s just the way the universe works.
