Hidden in Plain Sight
Have you ever taken a moment to pause and reflect on how you got connected to the people who are in your life today or those who have been part of your life journey thus far?
Can you imagine if we automatically scanned the unique microchip of each person who crossed our path everyday so that all data about the connection was recorded. Then this big data has an algorithm applied, and the outputs are fed to an App enabling you to view with whom, how, where and when you made a connection. Would your data show a pattern?
In essence this is exactly what Facebook, Google and a myriad of other websites and applications already do with the data inputs you provide to them. Who and what you see on those platforms is often personalised for you based on your known behaviour, your pattern.
The American drama series Touch, featuring Keifer Sutherland, has an introduction that eloquently articulates this. “The ratio is always the same. 1 to 1.681 over and over and over again. Patterns are hidden in plain sight; you just have to know where to look. Things most people see as chaos actually follow a set of laws of behaviour. Galaxies, plants, seashells. The patterns never lie. But only some of us can see how the pieces fit together….”
If you take a moment to think about how the pieces you already have in your possession fit together, you may discover a pattern hiding in plain sight. What happens when we make a connection with somebody regardless of how fleeting that interaction might be? The way I see it, in its most simplistic form we scan each other, we record what we have scanned as a mental, physical and energetic imprint and then we make a decision about what to do next.
But what is it that drives your decision to smile, ignore, shake hands, kiss, avoid eye contact, bow, cross the road, stare, start a conversation, pretend to be on your phone, yell or to take any number of other actions. And is this a pattern? Given that we are imprinting on and off each other, how are these patterns interrelated? Do our patterns simply validate what we already believe to be ‘the truth’ or do they blow our minds wide open? And whose patterns really are these? Are they actually yours or did your absorb them from somebody or something else?
If you join the puzzle pieces between your connections, or if you look really closely at your business, can you see the pattern(s) hiding in plain sight? They are there. Right there, waiting for you, in fact begging for you to notice them.
The ratio of 1.681 referred to within the Touch introduction is Phi, also called the Golden Ratio, Golden Sector or the Golden Mean. To Renaissance artists this was known as the “Divine Proportion”. Of recent times there has been a resurgence of discussions about Phi following the 2003 publication of “The Da Vinci Code” written by Dan Brown, and the 2006 movie of the same name featuring Tom Hanks.
Given that the Phi ratio appears in the Universe, Plants, DNA, proportions of the Human Body, The Great Pyramid of Egypt at Gisa, Theology etc (all things that have come before us and will outlast our short lifetimes), have you ever considered how Phi may be present in your day every day? And how using the power of Phi through the identification of your patterns, you can create your world to be any way you want it to be.
It’s pretty simply really you just have to see the pattern.
