Human Know thy Self

The Essence of Reality is Relationships Iain McGilchrist

The Essence of Reality is Relationships Iain McGilchrist – not Things. In this short conversation with Iain Mc Gilchrist, we learn that the left hemisphere, which is what we have sadly degraded wholly to as a society today places all its value and worth on things over relationships.

RELATIONSHIPS

The right hemisphere is the creating self. The left is the side that divides everything into pieces till there is no meaning to them without that which it is related to, and by that to life.

The most important part of humans is not things but relationships. And we are all going insane as we have lost relationships with everything, including Life and reality.

Our primary relationships are to People, to Nature, and to the Divine.

That is where we get meaning.

But today we extract meaning from the left brain’s Thinking. Not from the Right Brain’s understanding of reality.

As Aristotle said “We Are Social Animals” We gain meaning by socializing with one another. Iain eloquently and succinctly explains all in this clip.

we are all going insane as we have lost relationships with everything.
