We humans not only collect information in our memory throughout our lives but we use this information to form conclusions concerning deeper things that elude our eyesight. For instance, a crime investigator not only seeks physical evidence to determine guilt but to go deeper and further distil a motive.
Biologists and microbiologists look deeper into the workings and structures of living structures to see what makes it all “tick.” Studying genes, proteins, peptides, amino acids, receptor molecules, ligands and neurotransmitters are examples of their probing deeper into nature’s hidden workings.
Physicists look deeper into nature and its laws in the hope of discovering fundamental reality. Quantum physics represents such an attempt to go deeper into invisible realms.
Two lovers will seek to understand their partner’s inner makeup on deeper levels to form more intimate bonding.
This mental trajectory is how the human mind is perfected.
Even the process of evolution is towards deeper interior things and “mirrors” a similar trajectory! Looking at the evidence of evolution, we see a real trajectory towards increased intelligence and consciousness, which requires more complex structures to unfold and form organic substrates at deeper levels within the new creature.
Ancient philosophers grasped this universal pattern and coined the phrase “As above, so below.” In other words, everything in the universe (all causal process) proceeded by the same rules (principle of correspondence). Modern academia and science will someday rediscover this perennial philosophy, and something more—something that will turn current evolution theory and complexity theory on its head!
This pattern and trajectory has theological considerations as well!
God’s Holy Word was constructed with infinite wisdom and foresight to accommodate such a trajectory towards ever-deeper levels of consciousness and intelligence, and, further propel the evolution of the human species. The Bible’s narratives and holy stories contain deeper substrates of meaning within its literal language. The importance of these interior levels of divinely inspired communication is that they are God’s strategy to continue the trajectory of human evolution into a non-physical and spiritual realm.
The spiritual trajectory and evolution of the human race is towards wisdom—which requires both increased intelligence (judgment) and increased love of the heart (goodness). God’s Holy Word provides a precise multidimensional roadmap for such an inner and deeper journey. A truly advanced civilization will not merely consist of superior beings with unimagined technologies. It will consist of humans tapping into their deeper spiritual levels—and becoming angels.
