On the Forbidden Letters - by Wilhelm Wundt
Is biological life in reality inanimate?
'A biophysicist talks physics to the biologists and biology to the
physicists.' [Jay Wilkinson]
[ The DNA helix ]
Life, according to most scientists, is a characteristic that distinguishes
objects that have 'signaling and self-sustaining processes from those that do
not,'[Wikipedia] either because such functions 'have ceased, or else because
they lack such functions and are classified as inanimate.'[ibid.]
In biology life is the condition which distinguishes active organisms from
inorganic matter. According to biologists 'living organisms undergo metabolism,
maintain homeostasis, possess a capacity to grow, respond to stimuli, reproduce
and, through natural selection, adapt to their environment in successive
But how can we be sure that we can distinguish between animate and inanimate
in the first place? As scientists point out, any technology sufficiently
advanced and complex appears to us as magic. But is mere technology nonetheless.
So can, what we call life, not be animate at all, but only matter
sufficiently complex. In such a way that it only
appears to us as animate.
This would be interesting, because it could mean, in the light of the
Forbidden Letters, that there exists only one
form of life, and such life would be alchemical. It would have its origin in The
Living Stone of Transmutation through Kundalini fire. This would imply that a
human being still untouched by the Stone of Transmutation would only
seem animate, but is in fact not. And that
would be the essence of logon 11 of the Gospel of Thomas, that, according to the
Paris 4, 'most alchemical of all gospels.' Here is that logon:
'Jesus said: "The dead are not alive, and the living will not die." - '
The dead are those not reborn from that fire, meaning DNA-man. The living,
those reborn through Kundalini fire.
Again, and even if it doesn't feel that way, if this is correct, we would be
inanimate matter, if only born through
water, meaning: the womb. And inanimate matter can of course not inherit Life
Eternal. And this would, in my opinion, explain why it is said at the very
beginning of that Gospel of Thomas:
'These are the secret sayings that the living Jesus spoke and Didymos Judas
Thomas 1. And he said, "Whoever discovers the interpretation of these sayings
will not taste death." - '
'The Stone of Alchemy would then not only be the mill of evolution, meaning:
], and thereby the architect of the infrastructure for the Great Work, the human body, it would
be the very thing that changes inanimate matter into animate matter through Kundalini fire. In the words of the Paris 4: 'The endgoal of evolution is
alchemy. If you are not writing about alchemy, you are writing either about
nothing, or about something unimportant.'
That 'endgoal of evolution' might, by the way, very well correspond with
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin's Omega Point. In the Omega-Point-theory the universe
is 'constantly developing towards higher levels of material complexity and
consciousness, a theory of evolution that Teilhard called the Law of
Complexity/Consciousness. For him, the universe can only move in the direction
of more complexity and consciousness if it is being drawn by a supreme point of
complexity and consciousness (i.e. the Stone of Transmutation/Wundt).'[Wikipedia]
Thus Teilhard postulates the Omega Point as this supreme point of complexity
and consciousness, which, in his view, is 'the actual cause for the universe to
grow in complexity and consciousness. In other words, the Omega Point exists as
supremely complex and conscious, transcendent and independent of the evolving
