The Apocalypse - foretelling the end of evil
through scientific and spiritual development.
Many people argue that the Apocalypse is a statement of
prophecy foretelling the end of human civilization, and
possibly humanity as a whole. No, John predicted something much
more profound. He predicted the end of all evil through
scientific and spiritual development. In scientific terms,
the book of Revelation doesn't contain a prophesy at all,
but an observation based on an understanding of the
inevitable consequences of the principle of the universe
being realized in the human domain.
The Apostle John presented in metaphor a city foursquare descending
from God out of heaven, a city in which
there would be no night, forever.
A foursquare structure, of course, comes to light in scientific terms
as a matrix for the ordering of thoughts and perceptions towards
the discovery of fundamental principles by means of
exploring the interrelationships of given ideas and
concepts. For example, such a matrix can be understood as
a structure of rows of horizontally interrelated elements.
These horizontal rows can be understood to combine associated elements that share a common characteristic, or level of
thought, or cardinal point.
One can also recognize a matrix as a structure of
vertically interconnected columns of elements. These
columns can be understood to represent unique types of
upwards oriented flows of development, or progressions.
Naturally, these two structural features of a matrix can
be combined to enhance the depth of investigation of
whatever aspects of reality are being explored.
By the interrelationships of the individual elements, the
matrix elements themselves, are more precisely defined by seeing them in
their context with rows and the columns,
and so are the principles they represent.
This process of organization brings a great deal of order
and clarity to scientific investigation, and precision in
terms of correctness. The rigorous demand for precision,
naturally, opens up many question that would normally
never be asked. It also opens the scene to
discoveries that might otherwise never be made.
Mary Baker Eddy
worked extensively within the context of the foursquare structure.
Every major aspect of her work is structurally related to it. The earliest discoveries
of Mary Baker Eddy's work in terms of these types of structures, were made in
the 1940s by a Christian Science teacher in London England, by the name
of John Doorly. More complete and advanced discoveries were later made in the
1980s in North Vancouver, Canada, sparked by the work of Howard Meredith,
a Christian Scientist with a background in advanced education. The
work was eventually carried forward in a number of different ways. This website is
designed in part to provide an overview of the outcome of two decades of
research that came out of the discoveries of the 1980s, and to make the
discoveries and the relevant principles accessible.
