A symphony is defined as follows by Dictionary dot com:

1. In music, it is: An elaborate instrumental composition in three or more movements, similar in form to a sonata but written for an orchestra and usually of far grander proportions and more varied elements.

2. Anything characterized by a harmonious combination of elements, especially an effective combination of colors

3. Archaic: agreement; concord.

Perhaps the entire biosphere is a symphony that we must not silence?

Does this symphony need an external conductor? Or is it more like a jam session, beginning with a chaotic mix, which unfolds and evolves into a beautiful piece of music? Consider the following definition of Chaos Theory:

Chaos theory is the field of study in mathematics that studies the behavior of dynamical systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions--a response popularly referred to as the butterfly effect. Small differences in initial conditions (such as those due to rounding errors in numerical computation) yield widely diverging outcomes for such dynamical systems, rendering long-term prediction impossible in general.

Isn't this the difference in defining Nature as being ruled by an externalized God controlling everything and that of Nature's evolutionary movements that begin in chaos? This does not negate spiritual writings. For example, in the Bible's Genesis 1:2, And the Earth (matter) was without form and void. This is chaos and is the foundation for each second of our lives. In Babylonian myths, these waters are the Great Ocean, Mammu Tiamant, who was blatantly labeled as chaos. In the Babylonian account, Tiamant was viciously murdered and chopped into pieces by Her son, Marduk. Meanwhile, in Genesis, Tehom (the Waters of the Beginning) became differentiated via the Word (Vibration) rather peacefully.

And you can't say the reason for the similarities are based on Babylonian culture as being close to the Jewish. For example, consider the following video regarding the Kogis Aluna, a Native American tribe in South America:

Could Tiamant, Aluna, Tehom or Marie be what we now refer to as the Unmanifest or Uncreated?

Chaos! Dear God! What are we close to being in now? Aren't many of us challenging the status quo? Are we not in a state of chaos, wondering which way to go while corporations are working towards a strangle-hold on our freedom? Are we at a pivotal moment for change? I mean deep change, not like the French or American revolutions. These were nothing less than the Who's brilliant line in Won't Get Fooled Again: "Meet the new boss, same as the old."

So many things are happening. Some want the "powers that be" to behave themselves. Others, like myself say we've been there and done that; its time to foster something deeper. Meanwhile some of us are saying, "lets hold onto this sinking ship!?" Still others say the ship is just fine. There is no global warming. There is no destruction of the oceans. Our leaders do love us.

"Yea, right!" is my answer.

Our addictions to modern life, including our belief systems are hard to let go of!
