“Truths in series”

colorwheelIn his great book on theology, True Christianity (n 508 [5]), Emanuel Swedenborg introduces us to the strange phrase “truths in series” by which the Lord God reveals deeper divine knowledge to us humans, in an orderly manner from the Word. (Yes, Holy Scripture contains this divine order.)

In other words, the Holy Bible not only contains deeper (interior) truths, but these interior truths advance from a certain universal and harmonic order (the power of truth advancing).

It is from the revealing of this divine harmonic order to humans that they can now safely enter (Nunc licet) into the mysteries of Faith from beyond their own (often insane) intelligence.

Swedenborg began noticing the fact that all things in the universe proceed by series back in the earlier days of his writing on scientific subjects (like The Economy of the Animal Kingdom, Vol. 2).

When it becomes known that truths in series represents the advancement of all process through mathematically precise gravity centers, then the world will be able to correctly unify true scientific principles with true principles of religion.

What a wonderful premise to design all my publishing efforts around!
