Jesuit scientist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, a keen observer of nature, posited two types of energy in the universe: tangential energy/energy of attraction and radial energy/energy of transcendence--in other words, love and consciousness, which correspond to the inner and outer dimensions of nature, respectively. Moreover, as theologian Ilia Delio points out, nature is never at rest; indeed, "Nature is] on a continuous trajectory of transcendence." "The Big Bang universe is a story of space but it is also a story of consciousness and love." How are the inner universe and the outer universe related? "Is the inner universe the key to nature's transcendence?" she asks. "Is science disclosing a new role for consciousness and thus a new role for spiritual transformation?" The author builds not only on the thought of Teilhard and others but also on the findings of quantum physics to deliver a thought-provoking, deeply insightful reflection on the relationship of God, humanity, and nature in an ever-evolving cosmos.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Ilia DelioPublisher: Paulist PressPublished: 04/03/2018ISBN: 9780809153749Pages: 136Weight: 0.15lbsSize: 6.60h x 4.40w x 0.40d
