I haven't watched yet, but look forward to it. The things you've described however are right up my alley. Though I may change my mind, I do not
believe in time, since the present moment seems to be bounded only by two infinities stretching out from an infinite past and an infinite future, and
therefore only one infinity, the eternally unfolding present moment of now. You see, one cannot break infinity up into a series of fractions counting
down to any one point, including the present. Therefore, we live in an acausal universe, where time as the measure of cause and effect is really
meaningless, and nothing more than a convention for measuring distance or causation. There is no real time, just imaginary time. The implications of
this, from where you sit, are far reaching, in so far as you are here now, you cannot not be, and at the most fundamental level, always were and
always will be in one form or another, since you are part of the configuration we call life. We are a variable of a supreme value and an inextricable
part of the equation now that now is here now with you and I in it.
I think the only cause, is love, where love is not a feeling, but an action born of the will to give of one's self for the sake of another's
psychological and spiritual growth and well being, and for this to be meaningful, and of value, a final judgement is required, and has been rendered,
by an eternal standard of forgiveness.
The notion of an eternal kingdom of light and love is a byproduct of a rational evaluation of modern science, and what makes it a "kingdom" is the
hierarchy of increasing spiritual (oneness) conscious awareness or self awareness. Fully aware of impacts, both local and non-local, no one will
choose evil. Evil is a mental illness.
As a scientifically minded Christian philosopher, I am forced to conclude that the work of Christ is all-inclusive and that is was not reserved
exclusively for the domain of those who believe only, but is extended to one and all, because he did say "forgive them father for they know not what
they do" as something directed towards even those who put him there out of hatred. He also said, do not judge because God (first/last cause of love)
causes his rain tofall and sun to shine on the good and the bad alike.
The "Great Work" these days is I think simply putting all the puzzle pieces together and recieving the free gift of eternal life in Christ, and
since it is a work which must be performed for the other, being any other, in me the work is complete or nearing completion.
Therefore, as one who extends the invitation and who mans the door, I can say with a loving heart "Welcome, to the eternal kingdom of light and love,
where death has no meaning! Come join the celebration. What's for dinner you ask? Lamb of God."
