As in his prior books (Holy Blood, Holy Grail; The Jesus Papers), Baigent attempts to discover the darkish forceshiding within the shadows of faith and ferret out fundamentalists whose dogmatism frequently turns to violence. concentrating on the top occasions, he warns that strong fundamentalist sects in Christianity, Judaism and Islam are operating to result in the conflict of Armageddon, while the forces of darkness may be destroyed by means of the Messiah, who will then lead to a brand new reign. All 3 teams wish Jerusalem, the place every one lays declare to a actual spot, the Dome of the Rock, as a sacred position in its heritage; all 3 desire a kingdom during which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes an identical mistake that the fundamentalists make whilst studying the booklet of Revelation. it's not a ebook of prophecy and guide for scary sinners again into the fold; it's apocalyptic literature that makes use of symbols as mystery codes for the scenario within the lives of first- and second-century Christians, supplying them wish for escaping from their plights. unfortunately, Baigent's well-intentioned exposé seems to be little greater than a screed opposed to fundamentalism that's in response to a misreading of his valuable textual content.

For, in its movement onward, the life-impetus does not spring forth randomly, given that the measuring sequence of its self-individualization gets modulated by the equipoise that meets its prompting. This inward-oriented ontopoietic becoming of the logos manifests itself in the orderings of the cosmos, nature, and the human spirit. Reason thusly accesses its own logoic inner workings, which point to the analogical circuits in life that encircle it or pervade it, by intuiting the constitutive self-shaping that is at work in the unfolding of the logos.
The world itself becomes some sort of a correlate of consciousness. 32 The call to “know one’s own self,” which pervades classical mystical literature, and underlies the analogical relation between the microcosm and the macrocosm, may still silently 18 Nader El-Bizri announce itself, in more sophisticated, refined, and subtle manners, within the course of development of phenomenological thinking. 33 On her view, physical and biological laws belong to the self-unfolding of the strategic and dynamic powers of the logos of life.
There are a number of steps in this progression from transcendental subjectivity to world. As the first of these, there is to be distinguished the constitutional level pertaining to the ‘other ego’ or to any ‘other ego’ whatever – that is: to egos excluded from my own concrete being…. Accordingly, the intrinsically first other… is the other Ego.
