Young describes the life cycle of light as the "arc of light," and in so doing shows us how light, as it slows and descends into energy/matter, all physics are born, and subatomic quanta emerge with charge, velocity, mass, and location. As light continues to slow and becomes more and more determined, it gives up energy to form atoms, and then atoms bond into molecules.

Then light does a most miraculous thing, it reverses its descent, makes a U-turn, becomes neg-entropic, and uses the determined state of the molecule as the platform upon which to progressively build life: cells, then plants, animals, and man, each kingdom experiencing a higher degree of freedom than its predecessor. Then light returns to its source.

How does it know to do these things? Oxford physicist Danah Zohar (The Quantum Society) tells us, "Energy seeks to fulfill all its potentials, all at once, in every possible variation." (We have neither the time or space here to take up Young's theories on the photon's cycle of learning or Bohm's views on proto-consciousness, the infinite subtlety of matter, or matter as "a meaning field.") Miraculous insights such as these fill whole volumes; one need only look.

So as we consider the nature of nature and its "purpose" we observe the manner in which the whole manifests. The universe is light, energy/matter. The energy of a photon to create a proton is a billion electron volts, to create an electron about one-half million volts. The universe is held together by forces of attraction: strong and weak nuclear, gravity, electromagnetism. Light transforms itself into these forces of attraction to create all life and make everything new again.
And I would add to these four a fifth: love.

We are made of this same quantumstuff.

So we see a whole new world coming into view: born in light, bonded into matter, it rises back up to create life, then onto higher and higher degrees of freedom and creativity and knowing and then us, through us, to become. Knowing this to be our heritage and the Earth our collective dominion, we awaken to the nature of what is, become coherent with it, and with the miraculous powers of nature at our finger tips, we realize that we are the masters of our own destiny--and desire to manifest anew. We are at once free to create, to exemplify the whole and consciously evolve its purpose with the infinite abundance of it at our fingertips now. And we see in the miraculous, malleable mirror of the universe the image of our maker and ourselves.
