The Transcendental Attractor

Prose poetry for all-too-human times

Joe Corbett

A transcendental attractor is on the horizon.

It is the energy basin of greater or lesser integration and stability toward which the future of humanity and the planet is heading in the unfolding of our reality vector.

It consists of an ever narrowing range of probability potentials that will be realized through the individual and collective thoughts, choices, and actions of humans in interaction with themselves and their environment.

Along with the transcendental attractor of our future is the memory-field of our past, the actuality of our present, and the moment-to-moment relations that register and accumulate a history with an ever more specific and certain trajectory for its future.

This is the hero's journey of the Self that we are all on, thrown into it as into the gravitational pull of a star from which new forms of life will be pulled into orbit, or as into a black hole from which no life and no escape will be possible.

A transcendental attractor is on the horizon.
