I have been trying for a long time to create a request to the Universe, and in part that consists of asking the UU labyrinth stones for suggestions. I feel that is a way of approaching my own inner thoughts that are otherwise difficult for me to access.

I have rewritten this statement many times, trying to approach what I can understand and do to help the Universe to reach its self-actualized state of being. That statement sounds stupefyingly arrogant, and yet it can only apply to what is available to me and not the universal mass of 1 times 10 to the 22nd power suns, most of which is either dark energy, dark matter, or simple physical matter as we know it. And yet, you and I are the culmination of quite a few unexpected emergences in our departure from the Big Bang, and here we are, conscious matter creating machines who think, which are perhaps generating new forms of self-reproducing life.

What can I do? What can we do? How can we as living, thinking beings help to advance the potential of things that don’t yet exist, but that might exist? Some of these potential things might require thinking technological societies to come into existence. A ticking watch requires a thinking being immersed in a technological society to come into being, and much more so the vast field of accessible knowledge we know as Google. What might be the next things that we might bring into existence? Things that are now potential, but could become actual if only we did certain things.

A prayer to the Universe

A request to the Universe put into a prayer-like petition.

What should I do the help the Universe to become a more complete representation of its potential?
