Christ in the world of matter: Teilhard De Chardin's religious experience and vision

Christ in the world of matter: Teilhard De Chardin's religious experience and vision

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881–1955) has, through the wide diffusion and translation of his posthumous works, made a greater impact on postwar religious consciousness than any other theologian. His identity, whether as theologian, scientist, mystic, or philosopher, nevertheless remains contested. This paper highlights the importance of religious experience in forming and unifying his vision of the world. Teilhard is noteworthy as someone who both had religious experiences, and possessed the theological competence and imagination needed to interpret them. The paper begins with an examination of three short accounts of specific religious experiences which Teilhard wrote during October 1916, whilst serving as a stretcher-bearer with the French army in the Verdun region of north-east France. They are included in his collection of writings Hymn of the Universe (42-S4). The implications of these specific experiences for Teilhard’s wider religious vision will then be considered. 1

Convergent Quantification and Physical Support for Teilhard de Chardin’s Philosophy Concerning the Human Species and Evolutionary Consciousness

Convergent Quantification and Physical Support for Teilhard de Chardin’s Philosophy Concerning the Human Species and Evolutionary Consciousness

Teilhard de Chardin’s consternation with the difference between matter and energy and between the physical and the spiritual (p. 67) was similar to many intellects who have grappled with the dichotomous distinctions in general and the mind-body problem in particular. The implicit assumption for this dichotomy is that the differ- ences are qualitative rather than quantitative. His focus was to “connect the two energies of the body and the soul in a coherent manner”. He succinctly states “the inner face of the world is manifest deep within our human consciousness and there reflects upon itself…there are dynamic relationships existing between the within and the without of things at a given point in the universe”. (Words in italics were indicated in his original work). This perspective that consciousness reflects the universe and it reflects consciousness is remarkably congruent with the phenomenological perspectives of how the human perception (consciousness) affects our measurements of the universe according to Teilhard de Chardin’s contemporary and astrophysicist Sir Arthur Eddington (1981).

Teilhard de Chardin’s oeuvre within an ongoing discussion of a gene drive release for public health reasons

Teilhard de Chardin’s oeuvre within an ongoing discussion of a gene drive release for public health reasons

question posed was should we use and release the GDMOs or not? Following Teilhard’s oeuvre, in order to answer this question, we need to have an adequate understanding of all the factors to be able to foresee the consequences and effects of their release. Thereafter, summing up all the factors and effects will show how it will relate to the existing biosphere stability where the stability of the biosphere will need to prevail in the decision-making. In other words, the primary focus should not only be on different parts or perspectives, the public health benefits, or implications for the environment, but the integral picture concentrated on the preservation of the biosphere ’ s stability as a whole. Observing and making decisions from this integrative picture there is a chance to find a good balance between both public health benefits and environmental implica- tions. In this preservation of the biosphere stability, we should, instead of putting our- selves at the centre of the world as being in this world or in the ecosystem, change the orientation into being with other members of our biotic community, including those that will come after us, i.e. our progeny. In other words, our decision-making should be guided by the principles of co-existence and co-emergence with others or in other words by intergenerational responsibility (Zylinska 2014). This reorientation perhaps would be crucial to receive clarification for doubts that we now are actually having. However, the issues of ecological engineering are not only a matter of scientific or in- dustry assessment of positive and optimistic impacts, but they are also an issue of com- munity engagement through transparent, informed, and fully inclusive public discussions. This reorientation towards others and preserving our mutual home will become a mutual aim for all of humanity as part of the common project, and at the same time become a motivator for the creation of the noosphere in order to construct a New Earth for our better common future.

Towards an Ethics of Technology: Re Exploring Teilhard de Chardin’s  Theory of Technology and Evolution

Towards an Ethics of Technology: Re Exploring Teilhard de Chardin’s Theory of Technology and Evolution

Think of the automobile, or the television, or the personal computers or cellular phones, or software like the Windows 7 ―anything―what does it show us? Accelerating adoption of technology and innovation, which leads to its exponential development and evolution. Note that the progress of technology in the nineteenth century, greatly exceeded all the technological progress since the appearance of the Homo sapiens 19 . But the continued exponential growth of technology in the first two decades of the twentieth century matched that of the entire ni- neteenth century. In the 21 st century, we have major transformations in just a few years’ time. As one of many examples, the latest revolution in communications ―the World Wide Web―didn’t exist just a few years ago 20 . This worldwide reception of a tool or a method invented or developed usually by one man, or one group of men, clearly demonstrates a “Noospheric” adoption.

AN INTRODUCTION TO THE THOUGHT OF TEILHARD DE CHARDIN AS A CATALYST FOR INTERRELIGIOUS DIALOGUE

AN INTRODUCTION TO THE THOUGHT OF TEILHARD DE CHARDIN AS A CATALYST FOR INTERRELIGIOUS DIALOGUE

Such a vision leads to social imperatives based upon the structures of personhood, action and growth described above. Past natural law ethics, with its establishment of minimums for individual and social rights such as in the case of those of the family, labor, survival, and the relation of nation-states, does not go far enough to inspire the fullness of personalization. To be the most, rather than the minimum, is what Teilhard is expressing. An ethic that is not minimalist would see human decisions as unfinished, growing with expanding consciousness – it would be an ethic of continual formation, change and development. This ethic then would go beyond a simple defense of the person or the community in its formation [and] seek the maximizing of the energies of purity, faith and fidelity in such a way that we would expand our lived expression of personhood and community – showing the collective face of God. Such an ethic is expressive of not an arrival but of an expanding of the call to love. So a traditional ethic of balance is challenged by a question not of did I love, but how may I love more. Solidarity is not a point of simply walking with others, but is the call to [a] greater fullness of the whole body. The concrete expression of solidarity, the condition of an option for the poor, is by necessity a recognition that the entire body cannot advance spiritually when fifteen percent of the world lives on less than one dollar a day and nearly half eke out a survival at two and a half dollars a day. Sin, in this case, deals with not only contributing to the depersonalization but the perpetuation of indifference to the call for growing freedom and others participating in a fuller life. If we were to use an example of the refugee, refugees are not peripheral to a global conscience, but essential for its growth. Their fragility invites a

Confronting the challenges of tomorrow s world

The nature of insurance and the risk transfer role it provides means that insurance cuts across all aspects of society; whether providing at retirement solutions to pensioners to insuring the latest iPhone. It is for this reason that insurers find themselves innovating in step with wider society. As insurers are directly exposed to social changes, the changing world is the very stuff on which they should thrive. There are a number of such societal, regulatory or environmental changes currently at play such as global warming, globalisation, digitisation, demographic changes and cyber risk to name but a few.

THE WORLD S OLDEST ALUMINIUM CASTING

THE WORLD S OLDEST ALUMINIUM CASTING

Once these two processes, the Hall-Heroult Process and the Bayer Process, had become established then aluminium, instead of being regarded as a precious metal, became a commercial reality. The development of the world production of primary aluminium is shown in Figs III and IV. In 1885 the world production was 13 tonnes and in 1999 was 22 million tonnes. At the same time the energy efficiency of the Hall-Heroult Process improved dramatically from 45,000 Kwh/t initially down to an average of 13,000 Kwh/t at the present time. The properties of low density, high strength, good corrosion resistance, good formability and high electrical and thermal conductivity has seen aluminium alloys take a major share in many markets, particularly transport, building and packaging. The ease of recycling has made the metal readily available and helped to gain markets as aluminium castings.

Inform s new World Index

Inform s new World Index

(e) These abbreviations are better chosen. Inform used to do this by taking a room’s name and reducing it to one or two capital letters from its initials. Thus “Fontana Dam” would be “FD”, “North of Rockfish Gap” would be “NO”, “Shelter” would be “S” and “Monson” would be “M”. The new method skips common connective words like “of”, and uses consonants inside one-word names to add a lower-case letter to otherwise single-letter abbreviations. Thus we now have “FD”, “NR”, “Sh” and “Mn”. (Inform falls back on using vowels if no consonants are available; thus “Zoo” is abbreviated “Zo”.)

The world s failure to prevent or halt

The world s failure to prevent or halt

The second perspective, shared by some involved with the ICISS, is that the “sun has set” on the humanitarian intervention agenda. This claim is arrived at from two directions. Thomas Weiss, the commission’s director of research, argued that the United States and the UN’s political will to act in humanitarian emergencies has “evapo- rated” because of their obsession with Afghanistan, Iraq, and the war on terror. 47 This position is helpful inasmuch as it high- lights the fact that the overstretched Amer- ican and British militaries are unlikely to be used in frontline roles, and that strategic considerations related to the “war on ter- ror” are likely to trump humanitarian con- cerns when the two collide. On the other hand, it overstates the extent of humanitar- ian interventionism prior to September 11. In the 1990s, the world failed to “save strangers” in the Balkans, Rwanda, and else- where, and the legitimacy of humanitarian intervention remained hotly contested. 48 Indeed, the Security Council has yet to authorize humanitarian intervention against a fully functioning state without the latter’s consent. 49

Malatya: World s Capital of Apricot Culture

Malatya: World s Capital of Apricot Culture

Apricot can be produced in almost all areas of Turkey except the Black Sea region, which has a high precipitation and a cold, continental cli- mate. Important areas for apricot culture are the Aegean Region (˙Izmir and Manisa), Central Anatolia Region (Ankara, Kayseri, Konya, Nev¸sehir and Niˇ gde) and Eastern Anatolia Region (Erzincan, Elaziˇ g, Sivas, Iˇ gd I r and Elbistan) (Asma, 2000). The earliest apricot har- vests begin in the second week of May in the coastal Mediterranean Region where there is an increasing trend for local and foreign cultivars. Malatya, located in the southwest Eastern Anatolia Region, the crossroads of Central, Mediterranean, Eastern and Southeast Anatolia, is the most important apricot produc- tion region in Turkey and in the world produ- cing 7-10% of the world’s table apricots and 80-85% of dried apricots. Although apple, pear, peach, walnut and mulberry can also be grown in this area, the fruit growers of Malatya specialize in apricot culture and still call apricot the ancient name of mish mish despite the fact that the Turkish name of apricot is kay I s I . Apricot has been an important fruit for both production and trade in Anatolia since ancient times. Valuable information on the history of Anatolia is based on Hittite writings (1650- 1200 BCE) found in excavations at Boˇ gazköy (Hattusas). Dr. Hayri Ertem, author of Flora of Hittite-Era’s Anatolia based on Boˇgazköy The map of Turkey.
