The Word (II)

rosetta-50
The cosmos appears as a vast expanse of infinity, wherein reigns probability and the condition of necessity in which atomic particles vibrate according to the rhythm of the universe. The universe is a system, a state of necessary laws that form together the best of all possible worlds, for in a universe of Reason, freedom moves rational creatures to their final end: the domination of the cosmos. Contemplation of the cosmos generates wonder, a certainty that among the stars, reigns the Reason of the Divine Who guides stars in their orbits, planets in their rotations, comets on their courses, galaxies in their dance, and the universe itself in its evolution. From the concept “story” comes the incarnation of imagination on the white canvas of the universe, as the page of the dunes of Time turns, the cosmos is revealed as the theatre of adventure, of that potential for possibility that guides all life to their ineluctable resolution, as the forces of destiny coalesce to form the grand mosaic that is existence. There are multiplicity and diversity in the tableau of the universe, and from the cosmos, rational life derives the impetus that elevates its reason to the spiritual domain of the Divinity: the Word.

 

The Word, is the Story that is incarnate by the Divine Artist, on the white canvas of the page: God takes a page, a Story in potential, and forms a Word, a Story in act, Who explains in His Love, the Goodness that is the Essence of God. God is Good, and in consequence, God creates. To comprehend the Word, it is necessary to contemplate the forces of Destiny, for in Destiny, the substance of the Word is revealed: heroism, passion, conflict, universality, and a Romanticism that justifies the existence of the Story. The cosmos exists as a boundless expanse of a Temple in which the religious act of Faith encounters the imagination of the Eternal Word. The Word, the Divine Word, is the Son of God whose purpose it is to reign over a people of sons and form the Center of a Divine Society. Stories appeal to the fictional self, to that desire for wonder, that thirst for novelty, that quest of discovery that is the attribute of rational creatures: Man wants to know, so he investigates; man wants to believe, so he tells stories; man wants to love, so he adores. Stories are windows into the real, a multiverse in fact, in which the scientific encounters the mythological, the supernatural befriends the natural, and the Infinite introduces the concept of will, in fact, of a will to power, in which the creature evolves and is elevated to the state of adopted sonship with the Divinity.

 

The Word, in its essence, is a fictional concept, in the sense that He is a Story; from the fictional concept of the Word, story derives its motion, its reason for being, its cause. From the Word, come the stories that pace life and that manifest its enigma before the imaginative intellect of the man-creature. The conception of the Word, comes from the beginning of all stories, from the beginning of the Divine Thought, from the reality that, the Word subsists in order to justify the existence of fiction within the fictional self, the permanence of literature that soon evolves into history, in turn, transcending into science. Stories are the continuance of infancy, from the child comes the desire for wonder, the desire to know God and the universe He creates, to explore the boundlessness of the multiverse, to investigate the secrets of nature, to comprehend the mysteries of existence. The existence of the concept “story”, reveals that true maturity is found in the innocence of a child, for God, is a Child, and there is no greater crime than to put out the light, the flame, of a child, figuratively and literally.

 

That God is a Child ought to arm the human person with a more profound respect for life, particularly at its infancy, and for the reverence that desires to educate the nubile mind with the proper culture that forms morality on sound intellectual foundations: that God exists and that He deserves adoration, that religion is an obligation of man, that Catholicism is the true religion and that it leads to Heaven, that Good and Evil are eternal opposites and that the human conscience ought to be properly instructed, that life on Earth is an education, a trial, and a pilgrimage towards Eternity, and that History is moved by the Finger of God that moves Faith. On these principles, civilization can be fostered and maintained, and culture can flourish, human persons can encounter happiness, and God can be served.
