God’s hand in technology developments
Is there anything spiritual in modern technology, like the Internet? Cell phones, or iPods?
Although it’s more popular among Eastern religions, the concept of Unity is a giant step towards understanding God. In the West they sometimes call it Atonement, or the Second Coming. Not sure if you’ve ever experienced intensely deep love for someone, but what happens is you become “of one mind.” It’s not like you are reading your partner’s mind, but you think the same and are able to love and understand what they are doing from a distance. You see, the Atonement ends the illusion of the separation from God and each other.
We can see that now in cell phones, where you have the ability to communicate at will over vast distances. Same is true for the Internet, blogging, etc. Soon the physical structure that allows this communication may crumble, but the the IDEA, the spiritual telepathy will continue, for those who are “in love.”
Along those same lines, a new game is out called “Spore” which let’s you create life and supervise its development up through a technological civilization. See: http://www.mercurynews.com/business/ci_10402373
This is all part of the re-awakening to our connection with all of life.
