Divine Solitaire, or Inverted Genetics

Science, people seem to have forgotten, is a blind tool. It has no Vision. One cannot say that Scientifically, we should do this or that. Science serves two important functions; finding Truth, and empowering Purpose. What Science cannot provide is Purpose. Soul provides Purpose, and therefore Direction. Soul, not Science and Technique, provides Direction.

I dont mind when non-religious spiritualists refer to The Great Soul as Nature, nor do I mind when religious people refer to The Great Soul as God, because the two words imply Soul, thus Direction and Purpose. What I do mind is scientific people assuming Science is the provider of Direction. And by Science they mean the Soul-less part of Nature, devoid of Purpose as it is devoid of Soul. They speak of Scientifically observable forces they assume drive the whole thing. They speak of the Machine Aspect of Nature.

This quick intro summarizes years of unnoticed dichotomy, then months of confusion, then Finding, then months of testing that I would like to share with you today. In fact, this Finding is one of the few main messages I think will form my legacy to this world. And is therefore one of the more than few reasons why I started blogging. It took time to come up with a name for the idea, then more time to test it by both observation and discussion, and I found no better explanation of what we perceive and may believe than this: The Divine Solitaire Principle, which goes as follows:

First, I would like to make sure you know the game commonly known as Solitaire (or Klondike). If you’re not sure, please check this description of Solitaire/Klondike, arguably the most popular solitaire or patience game today.

The game, as other patience games, deals with a number of items that are homogenous and similar enough to be able to refer to them collectively (e.g. a pack of cards), and yet different enough to be able to differentiate them. Moreover, their number is large enough to have several instances of each characteristic (several Aces, several 9s, several Kings, several diamonds, several spades, etc). And finally, this set is not organized in any meaningful way, and the cards’ differences do not really have any meaning except difference and similarity (even if you want to tell me but 7 is greater than 5, I would tell you there’s nothing that can stop you from playing a game where 5 is higher than 7, or where you can choose to play without 7s in the first place).

The above description reminds me of humans. Some are Egyptian, some American, some Asian, some European, etc. In some situations, being European may make you relate with other Europeans rather than with Asians; yet in other instances a card/human that is female may relate in some situations more to other females than to others from their own suite (e.g. Asian).

Now back to Solitaire. The game always starts by your getting the cards in a random order, part of the deck of cards being together in and requires you, while sticking to specific rules, to take the yet to be known randomly grouped cards in the stock and re-organize them on the floor/tableau where the cards have to relate to each other in certain rules.

I guess you already see where I am heading.. the cards randomly stacked in the stock needed to relate to a card on the tableau in a certain way in order to be able to appear on the tableau and be supported by the previous card: A Red Jack can only be “born” to a Black Queen.

Now imagine with me a scientist watched a game of Klondike/Solitaire; and only saw the tableau and didn’t know where the cards came from or the rules of the game and that all cards were already there in the game from the start, what would s/he deduce? Scientific observation not knowing the cards in the stock/heaven will deduce that cards/humans are born to a specific formula of their parent’s rank; Kings produce only Queens,  which produce only Jacks, who give birth only to 10s, etc. And scientific observation will discover the amazing science of colorlogy/genetics which states that a card invariably inherits its grandfather’s colors. When a card cannot have new cards below it, observation will say it is a barren card, though often it will not know why it is barren. Observation will therefore conclude, especially as some stacks on the tableau get longer than others, that cards “produce” the following cards, not that they are merely being arranged in a specific way for convenience and the higher purpose of the player and/or the rule maker.

I believe in genetics. But I do not believe we are being produced by genetics. That genetics are what shapes us. No. I believe genetics places us. Genetics is the way of God/Nature/Higher Soul to ensure we are born to parents who understand our limitations because they have them, who find our quirks funny because they had them, who would see our issues as challenges they want to help us defeat because they are the challenges they defeated, or are still trying to defeat.
