“The whole is always found within any of its parts. I am both this individual, isolated, sniveling, scared little part and at the same time I’m also the whole. It’s impossible not to be.” Joe frames the human intellect as representing the separate, autobiographical individual and the intelligence of the heart as the representation or expression of the universal, transpersonal whole. “The heart [intelligence] is both me and the totality. I am that but as part relating to whole from here. From the heart I’m that as the whole relating to the individual part up here [referring to intellect], still that reciprocal interaction. That, to me, takes my breath away.” In this sequence Joe also explores what science calls the ‘field affect.’ In the same way our personal thoughts affect the body, the intelligence of the heart accesses and expresses universal fields.
