A new translation of Genesis 1, updating many ideas in terms of modern cosmology, but also in mystical terms of God's own Incarnation in and as the cosmos, and in all Life as well.
Physics tells us that all things are made up of massless light-speed particles that have become bound together giving rise to mass and spacetime. Is this the Incarnation?
Many people want to know the ultimate nature of the universe, the ultimate reality. Many seek it through science. But mysticism and contemplation may offer the Way that actually realizes that One, which is Love.
As science seeks a unified theory of everything, of reality as a whole, we may need to focus more on contemplating the nature of consciousness and our own self to find the answer.
Where does spacetime come from? Might our mind generate it as a kind of illusion in consciousness? How might we transcend this illusion in contemplation?
Mass-energy and spacetime may not be two separate things, but One thing manifesting itself in two different ways.
We tend to think of objects as self-contained things that move through something else we call spacetime, but this distinction may not be fundamental. We may actually be seeing something fundamentally changeless in excited states.
Some think we have to qualify for God's Love, that it is something God only gives through religious obedience. Mysticism says not quite.
Many people want to reduce our life and consciousness to the physical brain today, but I think we can go much deeper to the Source of our Life and all things.
The Christian Trinitarian formula has been expressed in many other ways throughout history, including in secular disciplines. Here are some possible correlations.
