UFOs and The Divine Milieu

The great Teilhard de Chardin proposed in his treatise, The Divine Milieu, that human beings – actually the souls of human beings – make up the “mystical” body of Christ; that is, we humans comprise the actual corporeal structure of Christ, who is manifested by the living Universe.

Christ (God) is the Universe, and a corporeal body – a real physical presence, biologic in nature or essence.

And human beings make up the cellular structure of that Universe or, rather, the Mystical Body of Christ, which is the Universe -- the total reality.

If this is so, and we accept it as a firm (beyond theology) possibility, then we might conjecture that UFOs are viral or bacterial intrusions – infections as it were – within the Body of Christ.

This would account for the various configurations of UFOs; they are various kinds of viruses or bacteria, and appear in many forms (even mimicking solid structures).

We don’t mean to imply that UFOs, in our hypothesis, are metaphorical. We, like Teilhard, assume UFOs to be tangible artifacts – biologic entities, some benign and some not.

The intrusions of UFOs in the Earth’s biosphere are infections of a kind then. Will they ultimately bring about illnesses for Earth and the Body of Christ, or will they be counteracted by a kind of immunity as yet to be discovered or experienced?

At present, the pursuit of UFOs cannot be fruitful. They may likened to such viral infections as HIV or the AIDs virus, not amenable to cure or understanding.

UFOs cannot be inoculated against apparently, and the lack of explanation of UFOs over the years, confirms this.

But a profound medical-like approach to ridding the world of UFOs or, at least, understanding the phenomenon, might be undertaken by those who truly wish to resolve the riddle they have provided.

  • As always, a really good blog posting. Keep up the good work. Can you tell me where the second picture (god30.jpg) is derived from?

  • I got it :). It's Loggia di Raffaello.

  • Zerwas:

    We replaced the alleged Raphael pic.

    (It didn't make our point.)

    Thanks for the note.

  • Another way to incorporate Teillard de Chardin in the study of UFOs, is to look into what he said about the noosphere (consciousness). UFO, in such context, can be seen as aberrations of the collective consciousness (in a way similar to RSPKs (poltergeists) that express deep tensions within a family). According to Teillard de Chardin, humanity is moving towards a more unified consciousness, which would be coherent with the globalization of the UFO phenonmenon.

    I personally do not like too much the teleological assumptions in his description of the noosphere, but one can see it as a social-historical process that is real, but having an uncertain future (as some other thinkers propose that modernity is actually imploding).

  • Eric:

    A clearer exposition of the Omega Point that Teilhard proposed is presented in the great work by Lecomte du Nouy: Human Destiny.

    We're eschewing, in the current post (above), the psychological aspect that reeks of Jung as an explanation for UFOs but think it has some merit, for some sightings.

  • Provocative post. Teillard was an intriguing blend of analysis and intuition -- a blend we may indeed have to enlist to ever "grok" the many-faceted UFO phenomenon.

    On the pedantic front: Can't help a tiny wince whenever (often) I see "comprise" misused -- which it is, at the top of the post. For credibility's sake, precision can matter -- more so, perhaps, in a speculative piece such as this one.

    Comprise -- to consist of

    (From The Randon House Dictionary)

    We think it works and is germane.

    Explicate further, if you wish.

  • Only because you asked:

    We don't consist of the Mystical Body. The Mystical Body consists of us (says Teillard).

    Again: we compose the Mystical Body -- the part composes the whole.

    The Mystical Body comprises us -- the whole comprises the parts.

    As I suggested before, this post seems eloquent of a curious mind willing to stretch in order to forge fresh links. All the more reason to stay securely tethered otherwise.

    I "met" Teillard" as a teenager, via a scholarly Jesuit who taught us (or tried his best) theology, Greek and Latin. Though I was too young for the breadth of his thought to sink in, it must at least have germinated; in grad school, I happened to read Clark's "Childhood's End", and something about THAT bracing experience refocused me intensely on Teillard for a time.

    Would that he were around to debate some of the Dawkins-esque, dogmatic materialists holding sway today.

  • Le mot...

    Since being taught (me) by the Jesuits I concur with what you write.

    But Teilhard, along with Lecomte du Nouy (in Human Destiny), indicate that we are as much a part of the Mystical Body (the Living Universe) as God/Jesus is a part of us.

    We are not just composed of (The Mystical Body of) Jesus but actually complete Him, comprise Him.

    Without us, God/Jesus would be dead. (We are the cellular underpinnings of the Living God.)

    That's why, as the Jebbies taught, when one "sins," it actually hurts Jesus, in a physical sense.

    And Evil humans are, as it were, a kind of cancer in the body of God (or Jesus) -- a severe malignancy in the Mystical Body of Christ.

    In our understanding of Teilhard's thesis, comprise is proper, and composed of misses the mark.

    And to go further would divert us from the gist of the posting here (above), taking us off into a realm of (theoretical) theology and away from the UFO discussion.

    You might check out our other postings at the RRRGroup blog -- http://rrrgroup.blogspot.com -- for things pertinent to your grammatical and philosophical interests.

    Thanks for your observations. They are meaty and useful.

  • A wonderful, much needed post beyond firecrackers. I agree. The UFO is like a temptation in the desert, full of wind as proofs nailed soundly to the earth.

    Obsession and desire made manifest.

    However I see it differently.If all things came from the same hand then perhaps it says choose by these things. Are we handed faith by monarchical decree or is it something more valuable than a free lunch, something we are ignorant of why it was prepared by having no reason in us?

    I don't think for a moment we are off the hook. What kind of suffering do we chose is perhaps one of the mysteries that Christ handed to us as a gift. The Buddhists chime in drearily with "life is like stepping onto a boat that's sinking" St Bernard put it more bluntly,"It is a misery to be born, a pain to live, a trouble to die." We awoke with a viral infection I suppose, well now what?
