The Blank Canvass of Life – Can We Engineer Divinity?

Jason Silva’s latest Shot of awe explores the concept of engineering your own divinity. The idea is that life is a blank canvass, and the surroundings in which we choose to exist can and does affect our mental and emotional states. It’s like a feedback loop where our mind creates an atmosphere or environment which then turns around and alters our mode of thought resulting in continued evolution down manufactured emotional and mental canals.

Those spaces we built, “the architectures of happiness” as Alain de Botton writes, the spaces we create inform, shape, sculpt our subjective experience…. we script intention into our designs and those designs in turn script our subjective experience.

This is a great concept to take to heart. Our ability to create the world we want to live in is very real. I follow this philosophy as a general guideline to help manufacture serendipity and inspiration into my own life.

As Terrence McKenna so poignantly states, “We are living in the condensation of our imaginations”
