Scientists and Cherubim

Science says one thing about the world, religion another. There is a small but growing movement towards unifying these two paths of discovery. And I admit that I am a serious player in this unique movement. While I have had … Continue reading

Putting dispositional essentialism into an organic format

Dispositional essentialism offers a dynamical view of causal process in which real substances have been ascribed the dispositional properties or propensities to lawfully (though order and orientation) generate new substances in a predictive series of events. Here, substance and disposition … Continue reading

New insights into the Swedenborgian worldview

Currently, Swedenborgian theology and cosmology is understood as involving discrete top-down qualities in which three-ness, such as end, cause and effect (or positive, negative and reconciling) takes place in all created forms and whole units of reality. Theologically speaking, this … Continue reading

Swedenborg’s “other” revelation

I have long held that Emanuel Swedenborg’s scientific discoveries are still more advanced than contemporary scientific theories. For instance, he was not only the father of the neuron theory (brain cells) but anticipated the search for deeper neural substrates that … Continue reading

God had to make some changes to create the physical world

Since God’s action is infinite and eternal, what happened to make this activity create a finite and physical world? I ask this because most physicists believe that there was a situation where time equaled zero. The Big Bang theory (with … Continue reading

Constancy and Change

If one contemplates the world around oneself, it is fairly easy to conclude that reality seems to consist of two opposing concepts—constancy and change. For instance, the seasons of the planet Earth change, but there is constancy in their repetition. … Continue reading

The theological importance of Swedenborg’s science

Emanuel Swedenborg was a bold scientist who turned into a bold theologian. This move was more seamless than most students and researchers of his Writings suspect. I would even like to stick my neck out and make the pronouncement that … Continue reading

Should the scientific theory of evolution include the spiritual transformation of the human species?

The answer is “yes.” However, science will not be able to come to this conclusion until it straddles the challenge of understanding consciousness itself. Since human consciousness is subjective and personal, it cannot be studied objectively. Yet, nothing is more … Continue reading

Infinity, Schminity…

A goofy thing usually happens when physicists try to combine the equations of general relativity with quantum mechanics. The mathematics of such a combination begins to spin out of control, yielding infinite answers. Scientists hate it when infinities show up … Continue reading

Zero-Point Energy and Love

Current science (and quantum physics) describes zero-point energy as that which suggests a vacuum is not empty but that something always fluctuates or “jiggles” at any tiny point within a vacuum. If God created the world and God’s infinite activity … Continue reading
