The universe is a chatterbox

One of the wonderful things that science has discovered is that the universe is full of information and that nature’s forces have the capacity to communicate this wealth of information through various waves such as sound, light, etc.

In fact, evolution can be looked at as organic life forms becoming more sensitive to, and developing more refined receptors—to gain better access to this ocean of information.

Life is sensitive. While animals have developed greater hearing, tasting, seeing, smelling and sensing receptors than humans, humans have developed a unique sensitivity to recognize deeper patterns and ratios in the universe. This special sensitivity has allowed humans to advance intellectually and rationally and see the universe as having order and orientation.

If there were a Divine Being (God) in the universe, then creating a creature with the sensitivity to receive increased and rarefied information (metaphysical) would be quite logical for such an evolutionary trajectory.

Religion has maintained that special individuals, called Prophets, have indeed tapped into supra-natural communications.

Does such superior information really exist?

Scientist/theologian Emanuel Swedenborg not only claimed that spiritual information was continually streaming in (influx) from a heavenly realm, but that the human brain and mind had special receptors for this info within deeper substrates of the human brain cell (neuron). Unfortunately, because of the abnormalities of modern human culture and a dominating terrestrial worldview, people have been cut off from these extra capacities and need to be reconnected to them. (The expulsion from the Garden of Eden was a symbolic representation of this disconnection.)

As proof of such lost capacities, Swedenborg showed lengthy evidence that God’s Holy Word (Bible) contains deeper levels of information beyond the literal meaning of its narratives. So consider this—no bio-receptor has ever evolved which did not have reference to some real information in the universe. Nor does the Lord God create special spiritual information without having subjects to receive this sacred data. Since all life has developed receptors to become sensitive to various forms of information which really exist in the universe, humans (potential angels) must have latent abilities to receive God’s deeper and divine communication hidden within the worldly and terrestrial language of Holy Scripture.

Swedenborg claimed that the Lord God is now increasing the effort to help humans reconnect with their higher receptors and tap into this deeper knowledge and wisdom. Such an event will not come without ridicule and resistance. It will involve an intense mental shake-up and paradigm change in the way most of us view reality.

Change is necessary, but change is always difficult.

    My sheep know my voice and they don’t follow another voice. I have been saying for years that, God Jehovah, Yaweh, is always speaking to His sheep, the question is, are His sheep listening.
    Thank You for providing this great piece of information, that confirms what I have believed for years.
    God Bless you
