On this Earth Day our world is changing…fast. We’re growing from one paradigm to another. We seeds have had a lot of fertilizer thrown on us of late. What we need to help make sense of things is to push through all that and get out of our box. Look at things from a higher perspective. Act more like the cosmic tree that we are, rather than identifying with the seed.

For instance, what if we view Earth as a doughnut? Or a torus? A wormhole? You can see it everywhere – in atoms, cells, seeds, flowers, trees, animals, humans, hurricanes, planets, suns, galaxies and even the cosmos as a whole.

What if we begin to identify with this pattern?

Artist Agnes Denes did this in her 1980 work “Isometric Systems in Isotropic Space-Map Projections: The Doughnut (tangent torus)”. She reimagined our globe’s spatial coordinates, squished them a bit, and voila, our beautiful home now bends to torus physics. In fact, our universe may be torus shaped.

There are wonderful similarities between the torus model of the universe and such mythic models as Yggdrasil, the World Tree or Cosmic Tree:

Yggdrasil is understood to be two trees in one, the part which branches above ground and the part which branches below.

The Cosmic Tree compares geometrically with the torus, the trunk being the central worm hole. Also, both trees are a single dynamic recirculating system like the torus.

From its central trunk—or central wormhole—we see the lustrous rainbow bridge, Bifröst, the shimmering wormhole (image above).

With its branches in the heavens and its roots in the underworld, the Cosmic Tree is a common feature of religions and mythologies around the globe.

Ultimately, the Cosmic Tree is our body. Each of us is a tree rising in the center of the universe. Our body is a ladder we use to descend into the underworld or ascend into the heavens. We are heaven’s bridge.

How would this change your personal relationship with the universe? What would you do differently if you know that with every breath, the universe collapses into you just as you collapse into it?

By Birdie Todd

A birthday is a launch,

a tear in the fabric of the Universe.

Someone is starting and

everything is different.

A birthday is a liminal space,

a crossroads of the time in life that has been and

the time and options which are yet to be.

A birthday is a gift of possibility in a life

because nothing is certain.

We mark the time,

the orbit of the earth around the sun,

as another year in the life of us.
