Micro and macro – Stages at the macro and micro levels are the same

a. Culture and biological evolution is directly correlated with evolution at the mental and spiritual levels. 1. Phase of the Old Testament. 2. Phase of the New Testament. 3. Phase of the writings. At each point in history Sacred Scripture was read with the corresponding correspondences.

b. It does seem from what we know of history that those in the past had a more natural-rational correspondence with the world.

c. 1. Phase of the Old Testament = natural-rational. 2. Phase of the New Testament = spiritual-natural. 3. Phase of the writings = celestial-rational.

Extraction and development – Evlevation of consciousness through reading

a. By reading the writings with the correct methodology one can expand his or her conscious mind. 1. Literal meaning. 2. Scientific meaning – God becomes specific because the literal meanings are translated into Divine Speech.

b. The assumption that these are the correct translations is key.

c. “Church” = “Regenerating mind” “the Lord” = “the Divine Human.”

Conjunction – Regeneration is conjunction with God

a. In order to become an immortal angle in heaven one must unite their principles with their actions. All other notions of God other than that which comes from Divine Speech must be forgotten because it is not with the proper level of correspondence.

b. Here is the split-brain human as apposed to the whole-brain.

“Polygamous marriages” (our own principles) and “spiritual adultery” (other ideas of God) halts regeneration.
