What we celebrate each year at Christmas
    #3539032 - 12/24/04 01:38 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

The incarnation of the Logos.

"In the beginning there was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things came to be through him,
and without him nothing came to be.
What came to be through him was life,
and this life was the light of the human race;

the light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not overcome it...

And the Word became flesh and made his dwelling amoung us."

What is translated as 'word' in English is the Greek word 'Logos'. Logos can be alternately translated as meaning, or reason. Long before John wrote his gospel, the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus spoke about the Logos as the reason for order in a universe which was in a constant state of flux. As such the Logos is the fundamental organizing principle of reality.

Christians believe that this reason for order in the universe is a word eternally spoken by God the Father, and is God himself. The logos is also referred to as the only son of the father. The relation between the Father and the Son is so profound that it is itself a person, referred to as the Holy Spirit. All three persons are of the same essence so there is in reality only one God. Christians also believe that in the fullness of time the organizing principle of the universe, the logos, became a man, thus elevating humanity to Godhood, and bridging the gap between the created and the divine, between the realm of being and the realm of becoming. We celebrate this most profound event of history every year at Christmas. 

Merry Christmas to One an All.

The word
a sound
a comressional wave traveling through a transmtting medium
or is it a quantum wave?
a wave function
quantum mechanics
to set the universe in motion

What is it about this Harvey's Bristol Creme Sherry
that provides me with such insights that absinthe cannot do?
There's something interesting with these French wines
that I have to explore further
