“The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inert, so hopelessly dependent on the system that they will fight to protect it.” – Morpheus  from The Matrix

From The Terminator to the Tinman, smart phones to tablets, we are fascinated with machines and computers, how they come together, and how close we can get to them. Our lives have been extended and improved, cluttered, enhanced, empowered and controlled by machines. And sometimes destroyed. Maybe we should take a look at the trends – before we end up in the Matrix or the land ofRoboCop. What can we learn from Ironman and the Transformers – while they are still just movies?

From the perspective of shamanism, all of physical reality has an underlay or overlay of intelligence. All that is physical has a spirit, a non-physical consciousness – even rocks, soils, metals, stars, planets, and by extension, all human made things, including machines and computers. But not all spirits are compatible and many in this vast Middle World are not compassionate. We humans are on an evolutionary path, and we are buoyed and buffeted by endless forces and powers outside us. The hope is that with our faculties and the assistance of compassionate spirits from beyond the Middle World, we might continue to evolve in positive directions. But the machines, our mind creations, may not after all be an aid on this path. Perhaps the spirits that become associated with fast moving melds of metals and minerals are not going to have the best interests of biological spirits at “heart.”

As spirits, we humans incarnate into physical bodies, perhaps under conditions that we have chosen. There seems to be evidence that we come into bodies in order to learn certain things, to experience unique configurations of physicality and emotion, to grow and change, to evolve. And furthermore, some researchers have discovered that in between physical lives, spirits (whether “human” or not) learn and experience certain things as non-physicals. Compared to the physical lives of those of the mineral world, our biological lives are extremely short and quick. But through that quickness, so too our evolution may be on a relatively fast track.

Connecting these ideas, one can speculate on the evolution of those souls/spirits seated in biology that is based on the progression of moving from the non-physical to the physical and back again in relatively rapid succession. Perhaps there are things that can only be learned and experienced as non-physical spirits, and other things that must be taken in and moved through as embodied physical formed beings. And perhaps this is one part of how the Universe evolves, possibly indeed how the great mystery, the architect outside of any focus or personality connects to an ever changing creation. Under this hypothesis, an obstruction in this constant change, this ever unfolding transformation, would lead to a slowing of the evolution of consciousness – certainly detrimental to the spirits wrapped up in the obstruction, but also affecting the greater intelligence of the entire Universe, in some unknown way. Perchance the great mineral spirits are designed to be the foundation of evolution and not the momentum that is the essence of biology.

There is a trend across planet Earth of greater and greater reliance upon smaller and smaller machines. Computers and micro-processors are ubiquitous – found almost anywhere. Many humans on all continents are more and more glued to and reliant upon constant communication and information enhancement through and by these smaller and smaller machines. In a sense, there is an increasing integration of human-biological intelligence with machine processing power – the Frankenstein of unintentional mineral spirit melding by those humans unaware of the realms under and overlaying the physical. There is research into the human-machine interface, blurring the lines between our bodies, minds, and mind-children (the creations we are ever producing and buying and using).
