Well written intellectual but wrong bookDe Chardin tried to connect the unconnected things Christianity naturalism pantheism and nietzscheanismAllegedly evolution and natural selection have led to the birth of men In turn men can become supermen and create the God by a method of mergingThe author makes extremely doubtful assumptionsFor example an initial substance supposedly has a consciousness or spirit and this has led to the emergence of life In addition de Chardin ignores many facts In particular natural selection reinforces the existing norm and doesn t lead to the perfectiondevelopment of lifeRandom mutations lead to degradation and death and not to the developmentHuman nature is depraved and puny especially in comparison with the scale and age of the UniverseTwo Stars

This was great reading in the first and third parts of the bookthough the middle almost killed me with its technicality In the early 20th century Pierre Teilhard became a forerunner in integrating evolution with a theistic worldview but the greatest import of his work was that he took a dead eye shot at predicting where naturalistic evolution was heading Advancing beyond mere rosy humanism Teilhard fervently believed in the eons long progress of hominization the coming to being of humanity He expresses god like patience by saying After all half a million years perhaps even a million were reuired for life to pass from the pre hominids to modern man should we now start wringing our hands because less than two centuries after glimpsing a higher state modern man is still at war with himself This seems to be the real crux of the book The spiraling paths of progress may not advance much in our lifetime but the history of life in the universe has shown that progress is all the history of biological development has ever revealed Speculate rather how can there NOT be progressunless life ceases to be altogether We have no precedent for progress NOT being made in some corner of the universe And while this development may appear to leave some species behind while focusing on a tiny growing tip of the universe Teilhard develops the idea early that nothing in the universe is really detached from anything else If we can accept that proposition which he spends some time in constructing then we can accept seeing or being an ostensibly forgotten tail while the rest moves ahead Absolutely no pun intendedTeilhard writes to buttress hope in a secret complicity between the infinite and the infinitesimal to warm nourish and sustain to the very endthe consciousness that has emerged between the two It is upon this complicity that we must depend Teilhard marvels at this complicity what is it that causes objects in space big and small to attract to each other He theorizes somewhat courageously that even the basic attraction of objects in the universe towards each other to which we apply the name of gravity is a type of materially evidenced love This may sound romantic and completely absurd to our western sensibility but as Dr Sten Odenwald astronomer at NASA s Goddard Spaceflight Center stated on his website astronomycafenet in reply to a uestion about our knowledge of gravity We don t really understand ANYTHING about our physical world at the deepest level such as why does gravity exist Why couldn t love enlarged to subsume the law of mutual attraction that binds the universe together seek also the unification and concord of human spirits Would that really pose a problem in a cohesive theory of physicalrelational life To assume that love is merely an emotion and that humanity is so different a phenomenon as the rest of nature is to miss the mark Teilhard boldly reasons The only universe capable of containing the human person is an irreversibly personalizing universe And so the universe is eo ipso irreversibly personal Shouldn t that logically establish that human love has its root in a larger universal principle that has always existed like everything else from the beginning in what Teilhard calls an obscure and primordial way Teilhard s conception of an Omega Point of absolute human union globalized love is entirely pertinent in our culture of social networking It represents the acme of human connections relationship to the nth degree in what he calls the noosphere mind sphere a matrix of highly concentrated and involuted communication or inter thinking as Julian Huxley put it in the intro Modern globalization may be bringing us closer in the next century to Teilhard s reckoning uicker than he could have imagined When he adduced that totalized love would be impossible to envision by mere rational projection it suddenly struck me by all the signs of instant communication and complex social networking as very possible indeed Distance doesn t dilute dreamsonly our grasp of them Once again doesn t all human progress signify the eventual emergence evolution of a perfect union A universal love is not only psychologically possible it is the only complete and final way in which we are able to love This seems to me what we all want what is woven into our religions and our highest technologicalscientific aspirations and yet some will laugh at it as if it was a silly dream But nature has taught us to hopeHis views on the awakening human mind and self awareness were certainly intriguing I ve always thought that the idea of a universe groping towards consciousness and unified fulfillment through eons of evolutive progress is very romantic The impression isn t necessarily that God is waking up through a pantheistic becoming but that the mind of God is somehow imprinted and bound together with the materialpsychical world while extending beyond it panentheism The goal of awakening and full being is included in his Omega Point I was a little disappointed with the chapter The Christian Phenomenon which seemed to toss his original ideas and intellectual tour de force into the catch all domestic doctrines of orthodox Catholicism It was as if he was offering something truly novel only to conclude with a unworthy bow The Church was right all along Uh bait and switch anyone Of course knowing the history of Teilhard s censorship by the church this contriteness may have been what got the book in print after all Now I understand Teilhard s trying to harmonize the symbolic content of religion with the flat data of science but I m pretty sure his work a day science did a good enough job paying tribute to his religious beliefs possibly outstripping them a tad By his own admission his ideas weren t meant to be taken as strictly science but rather an interiorisation of matter even leading some to wonder if he had been leading them through facts through metaphysics or through dreams To which I think Teilhard would cheerily reply Yes Criticizing any claim to pure objectivity he reminds us There is less difference than people think between research and adoration I have a feeling that the thoughts and ideas introduced and reinforced by this book will be with me for a while The it sits with me the it makes a deeper change As with every book I read if you would like a copy of a few pages of great lines from the book send me a message and I ll get it to you It s great fodder for thought and discussion
