Cyclic development, 17th May 2016

Sabrina, Frederik, Colin and Ambar were present on the 17th May to discuss the topic :

Association round :
Colin had to think of a football match that has a definite end and beginning, so that was an example for a linear action but he also talked about the emotion that goes with it. Where did it end and where did it start for the football match ? Colin also referred to the cycle of grief in which he sees a timeless cycle: –denial, - anger, - arguing, - depression, acceptance. Colin tells us that the cyclic nature of our environment leaves an impression on our genes and its inherent cyclic system. 

He also refers to the mentioned wave in the discussion and analyses it as a curve along a line….so he asks himself what would happen if we took out linearity. At the same time he is also convinced that linear things are more stressful.

According to Frederik everything goes in cycles,…
we have small cycles and bigger ones,…emotional circles and time circles. He reminds us of the examples of the Earth and its circles, the year circle, the tides and the moon, our seasons,…they are all reflections of a cyclic force. Frederik also declares that the map is not the thing and that some numbers do have a special implication as to what recurrence is concerned. So for example the number 7 and then 14,21,28 etc.….These year cycles seem to have important value for the development of an individual. E.g. Allergy can be gone after 7 years. Frederik tells us about natives that were not influenced by a linear system and he says that they felt circularity, as they did not have a linear system.

Sabrina does not see the cycle or circle so much in developments ;  she refers to these patterns as spirals,…
and she uses her hand to show the way it goes up or down in circles. As to what time is concerned Sabrina is convinced that the human brain created the time line.
For Sabrina we also move in one big circle in which life and death are ONE,…just like Ying and Yang.
And she is convinced that it is less stressful to think and work in circles. In science, Sabrina thinks, we have a hypothesis which is linear and then there are no questions. That feeling that goes with that is probably a feeling of safety.
Amber sees a cycle of learning in almost everything. He explains a bit more about his opinion and Frederik asks him if it could be the “déjà vu” feeling that he has been describing. Amber agrees, we develop in circles, we have seen things before and we learn by coming across the same situations again and again till we learn our lesson. At the same time he is convinced that linearity is a human invention that makes the observation of nature and working with her easier. He thinks that this simplification of linearity has helped mankind to invent and create technological progress. Building a ship for examples
is a technological development that needed many linear thoughts as a start.

After the break :
Ambar is talking about a solar circle.

Colin recalls the natural cycle of routine,…daily laundry,
shopping…according to the natural cycle..

Sabrina thinks of the food of winter and summer and the harmony of the environment. She feels a natural rhythm in how the earth works.
Ambar also talks about the rhythm of the earth and that your body needs to follow that; he mentions serotonin as an important ingredient.

Then Frederik reminds us of the fact that a lunar day can be very short
, that there are four important and distinct lunar phases including the full moon and that there are exactly 28 days for a full circle of the phases.
In reflection to that Colin says that in general there was not much consciousness for that kind of knowledge. “Yes”, says Frederik “the sun is rational”…”Yeah, rational in your face!” repeats Colin. Frederik now brings more emphasis to his point earlier. “In someone’s personal development moon phases play a very important part. For example : when to start a project or not…listening to the moon phases with knowledge or a kind of gut feeling can be decisive for a good project.”
“So then we become slaves of the system?” asks Colin. “Well”, says Sabrina, “systems can also free you if you know how to work them.” And Ambar agrees : “You should use the system to enrich your life.”
Ambar summons his thoughts up: “Cyclic developments work more in accordance with nature (no monocultures and no flattening of entire forests).
Colin is also optimistic and talks about growing veggies at the right time and also about linking systems.
He would also love to feel the rhythm of the planet.

Ambar: “And in that other system I also see that we will be doing things that are good for us. Work less in winter, work more in summer, and it will be possible to incorporate cycles in life, that will be incredibly efficient.”
In the cycle of one’s own life Sabrina says that we have lost a lot of wisdom…we could become more aware again and what would that mean ? She says that it would mean that we would be leading more our own life. It is all about learning and we all get another chance to redo whatever is necessary.
