Into the New World

While reading Wade Davis’ “The Wayfinders” I was stopped in my tracks when I read about the descendants of an ancient civilization known as the Tairona in South America. It seems that and I quote  “ What is important, what has ultimate value, what gives life purpose is not what is measured and seen but what exists in the realm of Aluna, the abstract dimension of meaning.”  This world Aluna is the unseen spirit or life force that moves through the earth and their world. One can imagine this as an earth born version of Avatar with everything being alive and having meaning. It’s almost as if it were a shadow world existing in our own that the native people still are in touch with and revere. Perhaps we also have such a world of meaning unrelated to the one we live in. We call ours Facebook.
