April 23, 2014:
There is a synthesis rising up in me before my spiritual eyes. I can see only the wisps or strands of it as they stretch up from below; I cannot yet see where they will meet.
These strands are:
- That human language is a sacrament (an analogy not only in form but also in substance) of divine language, through which all things have existence.
- That love is the logic of God and therefore the logic – or equation or typology – of divine language and therefore of all reality.
- That love can only occur between two or more personal [interior] centers, and the ability to perceive and mentally model two personal centers (an ‘I’ and a ‘you’) is the key to the evolution of language from pre-language.
- That life figures into this conception as well insofar as love is the desire for the life of a ‘you’ in another personal center: non-human, human, or divine.
So, the synthesis I am discerning will be some kind of primordial algorithm that involves LOVE, LIFE, and LANGUAGE.
