Ką reiškia amžinas gyvenimas?



Kas yra amžinas gyvenimas?

Amžinas gyvenimas išsakomas šešiais atvaizdais - keturiais asmenimis (apimtimis), taip pat suvokimu (didėjančiu laisvumu) ir susiklausymu (mažėjančiu laisvumu).

Suvokimas, kad Dievas nebūtinai geras.

Suvokimas, kad mūsų kertinė vertybė nepakankama.

Gyvenimas Dievu: Dievo išsipildymas

Gyvenimas Savimi: Amžina branda, čia ir dabar.

Gyvenimas Tavimi: Gyvenimas klausimais. Žiūrėjimas ne į Dievą, o su Dievu.

Gyvenimas Kitu: Šviesuolių bendrystė.

Gyvenimas Visais: Gyvenimas susiklausymu

Amžinas gyvenimas

I offer my definition of "eternal life".

I suggest that "God's love", in the sense that Frank Mosca points to, is a fruitful concept that we might first locate within our own minds, and then learn more by considering its implications for the CTMU.

I imagine that, above all, the CTMU is a hypothesis that our minds and the universe and all self-standing systems are structurally the same, when they are fully realized as to their potential. I suppose that is to say that metaphorical thinking is valid. For example, in Plato's Republic, Socrates compares the human soul with an entire city-state, and analyzes the state so as to draw conclusions about the soul.

This hypothesis lets us choose the system that we study so as to be able to explore the questions that we are interested in. The physical world is an amazing place to consider isolated, reproducible interactions at a variety of scales. A city-state is a helpful organism for considering how different outlooks structure themselves with regard to each other. I imagine that our own human lives are the domains where we have our best intuition as to how everything comes together as a whole. It is natural and appropriate to "anthropomorphize", to think as a human, when we try to grasp the meaning of it all, and anyways, that is the outlook from which we need to make sense of it all, in the end. But this is valid when we do so in the sense of a self-standing human because that is when the metaphor definitely holds. We are brought up not to consider ourselves as self-standing (think of the oddness of Jesus' "I Am" or the self-centeredness of an infant). However, we can imagine God's outlook and thereby escape the social realities that we have consented to. Perhaps God is sufficiently important to us as simply the ever present possibility (and through the historical Jesus, an actuality, and the Creator, a necessity) that we may imagine and access a self-standing perspective (a Why).

From this view, it is valid to sketch out conclusions based on our aesthetic sense (what idea we find most beautiful, what we would like to believe) that is also faithful to the facts that we find. For our aesthetic sense is, I imagine, a faculty onto a self-standing system that it relates us to. The conclusion which is most beautiful is the one that is true. That is, I think, the purpose of our aesthetic sense. The facts are there, apparently, to force us to unfold, enrich our aesthetics. They are like dust on panes of glass that let us see the glass even as we see through it. In general, I suppose, our aesthetic sense tends towards the minimal solution.

Day of Judgment

Andrius: God will account for himself. He will silence those who account for him. This is the logic and the story of the Book of Job, when he silenced Job's friends and responded to Job and rewarded him. He will be separate from the good, and not reduced to it. And this is eternal life. And this day is brought on by the innocent victims who require justice. This is the message of the Book of Revelations. For God is a borrower who borrows from those to whom he gives.


Gyvenimas įdomus, kad vis nežinai, kas bus toliau. O ko daugiau žinai, to labiau nežinai, kas bus toliau ir to įdomiau.
