The Heart of Matter: The Stuff of the Universe

Tuesday, September 27, 2022

“The human experience of consciousness means that the stuff of the universe is mysteriously held together by something more than mere materiality”
Ilia Delio’s, The Unbearable Wholeness of Being


“La conciencia, como experiencia humana, nos indica que si la materia del universo se mantiene unida misteriosamente es por algo más que la mera materialidad”.
Ilia Delio’s, The Unbearable Wholeness of Being

What is being moved? What is being asked?

    The material world consists of and is held together by pure consciousness (without content), which is pure light. This light gives the redeemed God identity, making them light-beings, light-bearers, and light-workers. Such fulfills Teilhard’s vision of the ultrahuman who shares this consciousness with God in/as the whole, made fully manifest in the Parousia to come (“Thy kingdom come”). The death of the Church Age, currently underway, will usher in the Kingdom Age or Omega Point in history. But not before further tribulation. The earth is currently in hospice care, facing extinction illness; for humanity, its “dark night of the species.” A higher order of consciousness will evolve, raising our species and its theology to a higher key.

    The evolution of human consciousness affirms the mysterious potentiality of the universe and all matter. Is the existence of the universe contingent upon human consciousness or any other type of consciousness? The human experience suggests otherwise.

    Ilia’s perspectives on matter lighten my being. I see resonance with Jude Currivan, author of The Cosmic Hologram and the upcoming The Story of Gaia, who accessibly articulates the recent science on the evolution of matter and the universe. I think Jude would be a great future guest.
