Ink in Glycerin

David Bohm talks about the behavior of ink in glycerin. It disperses, but then it can also return to its initial state—something we are unaccustomed to seeing. We observe a movement toward entropy, not negentropy. We see teacups shatter, but we never see them become whole again. This is interesting:

Let’s say this is a holographic universe that wants to have the density of light. Matter is too dense; energy is too diffuse.

If I am too diffuse, I need to condense. To condense, I could use magnetism (iron). But here’s the problem: When I consume iron, I tell my brain that the magnetic force is high.

If I am too dense, I need to expand. To expand, I could use the opposite of magnetism (manganese). But when I consume manganese, I tell my brain that the expanding force is high.

Because this is a model of wholeness, it is a model of opposites. It is when the universe is too hot that it condenses. It is when the universe is too cold that it expands.
