I guess the only remaining question is–“what in the universe is not beautiful?”
As Centerpath teaches, an essential function of centers is to unite hosts of ‘things’ into larger, cohesive organizations.
This phenomenon is especially evident in large-scale human groupings where a single, central symbol can serve to unite 100’s of millions of people.
Nowhere is this more apparent than at the entrance to the Forbidden City at the heart of Beijing where a huge portrait of Mao resides (see image below).
While standing there viewing the portrait, you can almost feel the hearts of 1.4 billion people come together as one—united in the shared image of their iconic leader at the core of their collective psyche.
A powerful experience made even more meaningful, through a basic knowledge of Centerpath!
If you want to learn more about how centers unite all sorts of things (including flocks, families, teams, corporations, armies, nations, and your life) you’ll need to spend some time with Centerpath.

Jin hosted a Centerpath seminar last Saturday at Aquarius Books in Kansas City Missouri.
A fantastic crowd of spiritual souls joined in a delightful discussion on how nature raises order and harmony—and how we can put her wisdom to work in our lives.
Thanks to Barbara for the great arrangements and to the crowd for their spirited engagement!
So many valiant attempts to save the world and our souls. Doctrines, ideas, manifestos, and heartfelt attempts–all ultimately well-intended but none have fully succeeded.
The reasons are many and therein lies the roots of their failure. They glossed over the simple truth there are higher order things in the universe–and they all spring from nature herself.
Balance, symmetry, purity, holism, and collaborative relationships; are the features of nature. As we derive from nature our disposition is the same–we seek higher planes being. It’s just that we’ve been ‘ruined’ by parts of our psyche that seek to gain advantage without consideration for anything else. In this condition we are bound for failure as greed, selfishness, winning, pride, and ignorance take hold and we increasingly become lost at sea.
i-Citizen seeks to reverse today’s red tide by simply instilling goodness, truth, balance, and holism, and collaborative relations back into the heart and soul of men and the its institutions. Redeeming our souls, and simultaneously saving the planet, one beautiful act at a time.
Centerpath’s first official seminar occurred last Thursday at the Hive in Bangkok. It was a wonderful evening—and what a fantastic crowd of spiritual seers attended!
We discussed how order, beauty, and harmony arise in nature. We discussed how our lives are patterned in the same way as nature—and how through understanding this connection; we’re able to put nature’s wisdom to good work in our lives.
The Centerpath revolution has begun and is gaining momentum–one heart at a time.
Protons and neutrons are not what you think. They are not simple spherical ‘balls’ as most suspect.
Protons and nucleons are actually comprised of dense cloud of particles (both real and virtual) keyed to a deeply attractive, void-like center perpetuating the swarm as the following passage from Fritjof Capra’s book the Tao of Physics succinctly describes.
“nucleons are, in fact, emitting and absorbing virtual particles all the time. According to field theory, they have to be regarded as centers of continuous activity surrounded by clouds of virtual particles”
And though we tend to associate chaos with the term swarm, the relationships amongst subatomic particles is in fact highly organized and symmetrical. Known as Meson symmetry, the accompanying diagrams depicts the dualistically arranged almost fulcrum-like arrangement of particles about their center.
It’s interesting to note the Meson Symmetry figure closely resembles Taoism’s I Ching symbol intended to represent the natural order of things which, incredibly enough was developed thousands of years before the tools of science were sophisticated enough to detect the minute details of subatomic particles!
one + one = ONE
Without knowing it we are participating in the cosmic whole forming dance practically every moment we’re in the company of another. For from the moment we simply share something in common we have created something larger in which we are than only a part –united through the central item we share.
And the centers that unite us are many. They might be a shared proximity or locale, clasped hands, a conversation, friendship, mutual respect, give and take, love, eye contact, and competition or cooperation for a desired objective. They can also be shared meanings, ‘identity’, and common purposes which are especially operative at larger ‘scale’ groupings (we’ll examine more on this later).
But in each case the sharing of common mental and physical ‘spaces’ does the same thing –it merges its participants into a larger single ‘organism’. On the level of two individuals such organisms are commonly referred to as friends, couples, acquaintances, associates, etc. but also strangers who perchance to strike up a simple conversation.
On larger scale groupings it is anytime people circle around the same object such as at concerts, rubber necking toward an accident, reading the same news, and around common rituals and symbols.
One plus one indeed equals one through the dynamic whole forging dynamic of the universe as reflected in the Center Ordering Principle.
