Observing, Thinking, and a Brief Explanation of the Universal Machine

Take a look at the world around you. I can assure you you will notice certain things, mundane, everyday normal things. Blue skies, trees, clouds, rain from clouds, houses humans, animals. Many of us look at this and easily pass it off as ordinary, and non-special. But now, some day, I want you to look closer, and notice. And question. Realize. That these simple, mundane tasks and functions are all part of a giant mesh, a giant cycle, and giant machine. Yes, sometimes it is good to look at all the small details, but you also have to zoom at and take a look at the big picture to understand why the small, simple things are so important, were the fit in the giant puzzle. The more we take the time to notice things and not rush so quickly through life, the more we will get a sense of how significant each and every little thing has a very important role in not only the human machine, but the universal machine.
noticed something while observing nature, and studying the ways many grouping of animals and such works. An I noticed that it all seems very orderly, very connected, and... sort of transparent perhaps? I suppose the best way to describe would be to say that all these thing work, it appears, to be striving towards the greater good of the species, or working towards an orderly and regimented system. Let's take bees for an example. Now while perhaps they may not be as intelligent as humans, not as noticing, or as questioning, or as independent. Now this is not a bad thing. Nor is our tendency to act so either, however it definitely does make things difficult. Now, while bees may not do these higher level thinking processes as we do, the possess a much greater level of efficiency. They all work together to provide for the common good of their species, colony, and survival. Now, perhaps this is all due to instinct. But the point is, they do exactly what we need to do. They all work towards a common goal. A common point. They're are a majority of workers bees, who feed the larvae, create honey comb and wax, tend the eggs, and eventually go out to forage. Then there is also the queen bee, who's main duty is to provide more worker and drone bees. Now I'm no expert on bees, but by making simple observations and by researching the basics, I think it's easy that at least some species of bees are very communal. So what does this have anything to do with humans? Well you see, bees are a perfect example of the universal machine, and since the human machine, in theory, is a direct copy of the universal machine only applied more specifically to humans, they give us somewhat of an idea of what this universal machine is and how we can follow it to start striving forward.
What exactly is the universal machine? I suppose you might probably be asking this. Well it is something of my own design in my never-ending daydreams, thinking, and conceptualizing. While my idea of it is not perfect, and may very well never be, I believe it is on the right track. The universal machine is highly theoretical, and in my opinion it's that it's obvious that it exists, but you can't really ever entirely understand how or why it works. But it's there it's the natural order of the universe, and basically everything follows it or is a part of it somehow. But let's scale down for a second, and just focus on Earth for a second. Now let's think, what exactly keeps Earth orderly and self-sustaining? Well for one, there is the obvious natural occurrence of gravity. There is a soup of gases in our atmosphere that make life possible in multiple ways, from blocking some of the Sun's radiation, to creating a suitable mixture to inhale and gain necessary components to life. But to truly understand, we have to zoom in even more. What exactly does the Earth do to self sustain itself? Well, there are forest fires, which while seem bad, are in fact very important to the self sufficient nature of Earth. They help revitalize failing and dying ecosystems, and help create new life. In fact, it is because of us trying to prevent forest fires that we had the pine beetle infestation in Colorado. There is an extremely obvious example too. Food chains. There are plants, which are self-sustaining, oxygen making things. These are food for the herbivores, which are food for the carnivores. And by being the prey of each species, the prey species is controlled, and kept from overgrowth. However, the human species has sort of messed this up, but this is alright, there is still time to move forward. But back to Earth. There at least use to be, before human influence, a sustaining number of each species, controlling and providing for each other. Weather is part to. Rain helps hydrate regions, evaporation helps naturally recycle the water sources, and, well, there probably tons more, but I'm no weather man. If you really want to understand the universal machine though, just go outside, maybe the mountains, go out and just observe nature. If you see as I see, you'll see the order, you'll notice the very delicate balance. And after you observe, just think, think about what you have observed, and if you do this, i think you'll start to understand the universal machine. And if you don't, then... well i guess you'll just have to wait for my next post for me to explain  it more thoroughly.
