The Great Recycling
By Joseph Mattappally on 10-03-2015
The Universe we live in is truly a mystery, full of unresolved riddles. It has been running smooth from the beginning of time; it also has been under constant repair from the beginning. I know that it is not the word repair that fits here because repairing generally implies to mending what is torn or broken. However, this activity also falls under repairing. What is happening in this universe is continuous restoration by continuous replacements or some sort of recycling. The self-repairing of the universe is continuous, changing everything every time. Within a span of seven to ten years all the fifty to seventy trillion cells in the human body are replaced. Each body has different types of cells in it. Depending upon the type, its life span also varies.
On a close analysis we understand that it is the principles of recycling that the universe follows. Recycling is a process in which waste/unwanted materials are converted into potentially useful materials. We know that the same polluted air in the evening is recycled into refreshing life breath in the morning, at much higher a standard fixed by ISO. According to human norms if there are things that can’t be recycled, the mysterious universe has no such categorization there. Energy at all levels is being recycled, our thoughts too.
The theory is that everything, except ‘change’, changes. But, how many among us accept this truth? We are worried about everything around. We want to see everything changed, be it our parents or siblings. What most of us generally experience is a change in another’s favour, and not us. Why is it so? The answer is that we do not ever trust that the whole universe is just for us or we don’t have that infinite patience to wait until it discloses in full. We never want to be that old fool who waited to see the sky falling down. Neither we do allow the universe to recycle our attitudes and understandings nor do we do it for ourselves. That is the disaster of the times.
