1. RHYTHMS IN HUMAN NATURE


    13

     Thsea horsese most crucial messages sent and received in the rhythmic fields of life, from its most primordial expressions on, have to do with love and wisdom, the principal focus of the book. In primitive organisms these take the form of rudimentary approach/separation and withdrawal/return oscillations. The biochemical signals transmitted by these same dynamics tell us whether we are alone or not, coherent or not, safe or not. The perturbations to those rhythms, when they hit, raise alarms. All species have evolved means for restoring rhythmic functioning. The physiology in them regulates the temporal aspects of homeostasis in living organisms. To understand love and wisdom, then, even inwardly, as experienced, we have to see how we fit in primal nature generally.
