Unfinished HyperSaga of Eternity

As Viewed By A Mystical Christian

© 1999, 2001 Rev. John A. Mills


Like a blank video window Pregnant with possibility Each pixel energized Waiting for a click ...

Emptiness becomes [->Emptiness] Yahweh: I am what I am becoming Creating out of nothing Creans ex nihilo

Not for long will a human -- Image of Creans ex nihilo -- Let a blank video window Remain blank It is a window onto Omega Absolute Infinity All possibilities

Yahweh begets and creates -- is (the) begetting out of self is (the) creating out of nothing Begotten, not born, is ... Logos, the Word, Omega, the potential actuality of Christ, The edge of creation, God's Shalom First born, not begotten, is ... Sophia, Wisdom, ø, the actual potentiality of Christ, Womb, seed, within everything God's faithful promise Christ is Wisdom and Word As light is particle and wave: [->Christ is the Light of the World] Sophia is God's ordering and understanding Logos is God's powering and changing.

Sophia and Logos are lovers, [->Song of Songs] Intertwined and inseparable. They are one, eternity. [->Eternity]

Sophia bears the egg and [->Space-Time: Sophia's Foetus] Logos emits the seed And they conceive Space-Time

Which is now a growing foetus In the Womb of Sophia, of eternity [->Aionic Couplets]

Which is a pseudo-sphere Floating in the amniotic sac of Light [->Phos]

Whose conception was the Big Bang And now prepares for birth.

As all of Creation converged upon the Incarnation Since it anticipated Sophia's Labor And all of Creation was forever changed at the Cross and Resurrection Since Jesus' divine suffering brought on Labor All of eternity groans in labor pains

And soon, we pray, Space-Time will be born: The journey through the birth canal is The Apocalypse, its trauma And the child is Space-Time transformed Into the Basilea of God Suckled at Sophia's breasts.

And ... The foetus is now. The foetus of Space-Time is like a sponge Whose cells are emptiness, creans ex nihilo That re-births eternity fractally.

Emptiness is two braces embracing nothing no-space Emptiness is zero canceled

Emptiness is not, but becomes Emptiness is not barren, but pregnant Emptiness is not static, but dynamic Emptiness is prior to everything. From it all actuality and all potentiality emerges. Wherever there is emptiness, there can be creation. Emptiness is a blank window ready to be written upon It is a desert and a wasteland It is timeless and spaceless It is silent. It is neither being nor non-being It is seed and womb, ø and {} It is divine kenosis: [->Kenosis: the Other Within]

Before creation Christ as Logos, the Word Was God in form, all ruler, truth and right: But in being God, did not so much delight That Christ became a human, love preferred, Whose holy words through the ages would be heard, Whose human touch would offer hope and sight And love and care relieve the soul's dark night, And suffered on the cross so death deterred. Through Jesus humbled, emptied, holy child All things from A to Z came into being - Alone through Jesus can things be created: Thus God exalted Jesus so decreeing His way and name to be to our spirit freeing And that all creatures here would kneel elated.

Emptiness is the empty set the whole that contains nothing the set that is in every set Emptiness is part of everything, ubiquitous, even of itself unique, one of a kind threaded through everything [->The empty set is in everything] Emptiness plus anything is anything [->Null Algebra] - it is integrally and essentially a part of anything a thing is not that thing without emptiness Emptiness being void, without anything is utterly different from anything having nothing in common with anything - it is utterly other [->The Null Set is the Utterly Other] disjoint from everything Two disjoint, utterly different things have nothing, that is emptiness, in common When everything is removed from a thing, emptiness remains, [->Emptiness is certain] the root character of anything Emptiness is the other within Emptiness is the actual pointing to all potentiality

Emptiness is certain When all else is stripped away When job is lost When family is gone When health is broken When self despairs When all that is is taken away And nothing remains ... When we are drained dry And we are hollow ... Emptiness remains and that is the hand of God caressing us holding us Emptiness stays and that is the spark of God a flower sprouting in the desert a fruit ripening in the desolation a cry of labor in the ruins God remains and is never gone.
The empty set is in everything every person every thought every atom and star every every It is one, the intersection of everything with everything It is the thread knitting all things together. It is the trace of the incarnated Logos that upholds and ties together all of the Universe It is our common kinship with all Creation It is the icon of the Holy Spirit the stamp of Logos the mark of Sophia on all of us.
It is the utterly Other within us. Our common kinship is the Other The Other is part of us Love yearns for the Other. Kenosis is utterly touching the utterly Other. Kenosis is touching God. [->Kenosis: the Other Within] God is love and kenosis births the Other.

To be empty is to be hollow and hallowed ready to be filled with the utterly Other -- with the Divine stripped of our barriers open vulnerable drained of our prejudices challenged convertible fillable with

Nothingness is the trace, the thread that binds: I am a son and father, husband and friend Through my parents, I am connected To the siblings and friends To their parents & through them, their parents and relatives and friends & through them, yet further back into the past Through each I am connected to their friends & through those friends to their friends across space, nation to nation, joined Through my children and my friends' children I am connected To their children and children-to-be & their friends and their friends' children-to-be & those childrens' children and friends Still further into the future & through them, to a network of relationships extending across Space, star to star, joined Through the web of relation, I - and you - Are interconnected With all creation Today Yesterday Tomorrow Here There Yon Nothingness we have in common with the other Manifested in our relational interconnectedness
Eternity is like ... The mind of Kishelemukong, god of the Lenape, who creates from divine thought Who in the imagination suspends time and space And thought emerges

Eternity is like ... With eyes closed in meditation The blank tabla of our imagination Time and space forgot And thoughts chase thoughts

Eternity is like ... Early morning sun beams solidly ethereal Lost in lush gardens The moment suspended between dawn and light Færie for an infinitesimal Pointing to beyond to mystery to enchantment

Eternity is ... Emptiness birthing ...

Christ is the Light of the world: And the darkness cannot overcome it. The absence of light is darkness: The broken thread of being The beyond the cosmic edge. Christ, the Light of the world, shines out: Word and Wisdom, wave and quanta As light is wave: [->Phos] radio waves microwaves infrared red orange yellow green blue indigo violet ultraviolet X-rays gamma rays Spreading and rippling out To shine on the world So the Word of God spreads and ripples out To shine on creation. As light is quanta [->Phos] photon particle packet One by one propagating out To color brilliantly all things So the Proverbs of God One by one propagate out To color brilliantly all we do. Christ, the Light of the world, bears eternity At c in a void Spaceless, timeless, massless Entering space-time from eternity ...
