Default Hi everyone

Hi!

I'm Asher. I am a pantheist/neutral monist. I see that there are patterns in nature that humans are able to detect, and we become ever more complex in our detection methods, while the patterns also become more complex. Old patterns can be replaced by new patterns (i.e. change in theories, ideals, languages, cultures) for their utility in the relevant human context. I believe that we will continue to develop patterns forever, but the natural "source" of the patterns will remain powerfully elusive. That source is non-measurable, because it is all-encompassing across the whole material universe, and cannot be divided or isolated into measurement.

In any case, I have joined the forum because I am also a researcher at Swinburne University, and I am conducting a study about how Australians handle themselves within their relationships. Significant findings would theoretical improvements in the field of Attachment Theory and also improvements in counselling practises. I would like to post a link to the survey in "Off Topic" or "Mental Health/Wellbeing" forums.

Best regards,
Asher Lederman
