According to scientist/theologian Emanuel Swedenborg, angels see all complete processes as the power of God’s Truth advancing (Divine Providence) in a coordinated and harmonious series of causes where all things return to their first principles.
A simple example of this sacred (holistic) process is a seed leading to the development of future seeds. Swedenborg claimed that angels look at all phenomena from this divine cyclic order, or as “comprehensive wholes.” These comprehensive wholes, in the form of orbits, also represent the intelligent and conjunctive design of God’s “Circle of Life.
(We can also experience this same and ubiquitous process of things returning to their first principles in our psyche, in that what we intend—or will—we make our goal.)
This means that all processes in the visible (and invisible) universe arrange themselves into an organic and circular (repeatable) pattern, without which there would be no connectivity, mutual cooperation or unity in the world. (And the universe is indeed profoundly unified!)
Unfortunately, modern scientists do not view reality in the organic way angels do, and as a result, do not perceive such profound “oneness” within the living dynamics and diversity of action on all scales in the universe—physical, psychical and Divine.
I have discussed these “living” ideas in greater depth in my award-winning book Proving God. Also, many of those who have embraced Swedenborg’s new theology have yet to embrace his scientific discoveries, which rationally and lawfully explain how God operates and creates from spiritual principles.
