evolution

A Quote by Thomas Berry on evolution, universe, pattern, creativity, and consciousness

We need merely understand that the evolutionary process is neither random nor determined but creative. It follows the general pattern of all creativity. While there is no way of fully understanding the origin moment of the universe we can appreciate the direction of evolution in its larger arc of development as moving from lesser to great complexity in structure and from lesser to greater modes of consciousness. We can also understand the governing principles of evolution in terms of its three movements toward differentiation, inner spontaneity, and comprehensive bonding.

A Quote by Thomas Berry on future, evolution, context, emergence, and universe

Our main source of psychic energy in the future will depend on our ability to understand this symbol of evolution in an acceptable context of interpretation. Only in the context of an emergent universe will the human project come to an integral understanding of itself. We must, however, come to experience the universe in its psychic as well as in its physical aspect. We need to experience the sequence of evolutionary transformations as moments of grace, and also as celebration moments in our new experience of the sacred.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on god, body, physicality, consciousness, physiology, evolution, conscious evolution, intelligent design, immanence, divinity, god-self, and dna

If God is indeed in the body—and consciousness and physiology are, from an evolutionary perspective, inextricably linked—we must acknowledge that divine consciousness is available in and through physicality.

The ultimate direction of evolution is toward greater truth, beauty and goodness and more and more matter becoming "God" conscious.

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on beginings, evolution, and creation

There is a beginning. There is no beginning of that beginning. There is no beginning of that no beginning of beginning. There is something. There is nothing. There is something before the beginning of something and nothing, and something before that. Suddenly there is something and nothing. But between something and nothing, I still don't really know which is something and which is nothing. Now, I've just said something, but I don't really know whether I've said anything or not.

Chuang Tzu (c.360 BC - c. 275 BC)

A Quote by unknown on reality, life, awareness, wealth, power, and evolution

We've run into a cultural situation where we've confused the symbol with the physical reality, the money with the wealth, and the menu with the dinner....and we're starving on eating menus.

A Quote by David Holmgren on land, evolution, permaculture, energy, stability, and entropy

Although it is tempting to think of these natural landscapes as reflecting a stability in climactic and geologic forces, long periods of climactic and geophysical stability actually result in a rundown of the energy available to ecosystems and people. Geologically young regions with recent mountain building and volcanism tend to be much more biologically productive and have supported large populations of people despite their vulnerability to natural disasters. Geologically old regions (like most of Australia) tend to have low biological productivity and supported fewer people.

A Quote by Sri Aurobindo on supermind, supramental, transformation, and evolution

The supramental transformation, the supramental evolution must carry with it a lifting of mind, life and body out of themselves into a greater way of being in which yet their own ways and powers would be, not suppressed or abolished, but perfected and fulfilled by the self-exceeding.
