Human hypercluster

"Human beings, as other organisms at higher rungs of biological evolution, are hyperclusters of wave interference patterns, oscillating across a broad range of frequencies." - Ervin Laszlo January 26, 2017 (Nairobi): In December I read a mind-blowing book by Ervin Laszlo (and others) called What is Reality?: The New Map of Cosmos, Consciousness, and Existence. …

Heal the human

October 5, 2016 (Kampala): It struck me yesterday while reading The Whole-Brained Child that the universe is like a brain. Both the cosmos and the brain are composed of innumerable interconnected networks of individual entities interacting in holarchical systems. In both, there is what I could call the logopneumatic unity: 1) In the brain, primal …

The Johannine equation

September 16, 2016 (Kampala): The last couple of days I've been reading a lot about the λóγος from articles I've downloaded from the internet. A picture is forming in my mind. It looks like the usage of λóγος in John's prologue is not immediately clarified by looking at the normal, non-philosophical uses of the root …

Linguistic cosmology

August 11, 2016 (Kampala): Let me try to express - at this moment just prior to our departure from East Africa - what I now envision as the next permutation of the my life's work: Ultimately, I want to help, to do my unique part in 'building the Kingdom of God', 'bringing heaven to earth' …

Cosmic sexuality

Today one of my sisters-in-law is expected to give birth to her first child. I'll write this post in honor of that momentous event. Yesterday I watched videos by Teal Swan on the psychological split within women and men. Her words seeded my mind, and this post is a birth of verbal expression. Sexuality isn't …

Body of God

July 19, 2016 (Kampala): I've started reading Sallie McFague's book The Body of God: An Ecological Theology...It's an amazing book; I keep asking myself why I waited so long to read it! She is presenting an 'organic' model of God-in-the-World, a theological cosmology that centers on bodies and embodiment. She's preaching to the choir as …

Cosmic properties

May 25, 2016 (Kampala): The beliefs and experiences we assume to be the province of Christianity do not, in fact, belong to Christianity alone: The inspiration of texts that we attribute solely to the Bible is not a property of the Bible alone. It is a property of the Cosmos. The joy, peace, hope, and …

Cosmic supertext

April 19, 2016 (Kampala): I'm reading a little this morning about Copernicus and the letter he wrote to the Pope explaining his revolutionary idea that the earth moves. While studying astronomy, he noticed something was 'off', and it bothered him. Up till then, astronomers had held widely varying and often conflicting views on the basics …

The Listener

January 27, 2016 (Timu): Yesterday was quite a day. My dictionary guys came, and we had a good session. I got some lovely new words: technical, culturally highly significant, and likely very ancient. For example, /b'ej'ékù-/, 'white ants that fly late in the season', or /wàsò-/, 'the stick that's bent over as the spring in …

Matter articulate

From the epilogue of Denys Turner's biography of St. Thomas Aquinas: Thomas's matter speaks, it overflows with meaning. For what are human beings but matter articulate, animals that in speaking make sounds utter, and in writing make literate shapes?... Articulate animals that were are, our bodies speak to one another, and through word and gesture …
