CHRIST ReturnsThe Process of Creation
Letter 5 rosepage 174
5.80.1 Can the human mind replicate any of the most basic of activities
within – say – the digestive system, which swiftly summons up
the requisite enzymes and hormones necessary for digestion[?]
5.80.2 How dare the finite mind, which is incapable of perceiving clearly
the true creative process governed by instinctual knowledge,
presume to state unequivocally – defying contradiction –
that it understands the true origins of creation
and the forces out of which creation took form?

5.80.3 What arrogance! These men can only think
according to what their eyes tell them.

5.81 I view the present scientific ignorance with loving compassion, a degree
of amusement, and a great all consuming passion to puncture their pride.
5.81.1 For, until someone can penetrate their self-satisfaction
and position of infallibility, a true mating of Eternal Verities
and human scientific knowledge can never take place.
5.81.2 But it must take place; otherwise human spiritual evolution
will remain at a standstill.
5.81.2 The scientific mind is too full of finitely devised
book lore, accepted formulas and equations,
and the need for their fellows’ approval,
to permit mystical penetration by Higher Intelligences.

behalf 5.82 On my behalf,

I ask readers of these Letters, to form an association
to challenge Science and ask :

at what point in the evolution of thematerial world

is CONSCIOUSNESS first discernible?
5.83 I repeat and mean what I say:
Ask the scientist at what point in the evolution of the world
is consciousness first discernible.
5.83.1 In the living cell? If in the living cell, ask whether it was discernible in the living molecules
which combined to make a cell and encase itself in such
an intelligently designed membrane, permitting the intake of selected food
and excretion of toxic waste. How does it recognise toxic waste?
5.83.2 And if it should be conceded that consciousness
might be present in living molecules, should you not ask whether
the chemical properties which became a living molecule
might not themselves have possessed consciousness which eventually impelled
and propelled them into the lifegiving combination to make a molecule?
