A Brief History of the End of Time
— 14. Capitalism's undoing —
Life and matter
When God revealed to Abraham the essential nature of his posterity He said that He would make them like the dust of the earth, the same material from which He once formed the body of Adam (read our article Abraham and the Standard Model in Genesis). Paul wrote that all who believe Christ are in essence the posterity of Abraham, and when God made the body of Christ He did what he had done before: To form Adam He gathered the dust of the earth and breathed into him His breath and Adam became a living soul. Now, to form the Body of Christ (not to be confused with any religion) He again gathered the dust of the earth (Abraham's posterity) and released among them the life giving Holy Spirit. And the Body of Christ became a super-living entity.
The difference between the Body of Christ and any other body therefore is the same difference that separates an inanimate object from a living cell.
When light hits a stone, the atoms that makes up that stone will increase in personal energy (which is equal to an increase in mass according to Einstein's special relativity theory) and jump and jolt within the grid that makes the stone, and pass its energy onto adjacent atoms and the stone will heat up. When light hits a living cell (especially a plant cell; flora is the foundation of life as it occupies the lowest level of every food chain) the energy is received and transformed into a chemical equivalent (glucose) and utilized to serve the larger whole. A living cell does not degenerate light into personal mass and corporate heat the way a stone does.
Black and light
Darkness is not the opposite of light; it is the absence of light. Blackness is the quality of being receptive of light. A black body in contrast of a white or colored body receives light without rejecting any wavelength, but still degenerates it into heat. A living cell therefore is blacker than black, or in the words of John the Evangelist, In Him was life, and the life was the light of men, and the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not degenerate it (kata-lambano means to take down).
Quantum irregularity is the basis for all variety, and it may even be possible to explain evolution by means of bio-quantum irregularity, rather than by mutation and natural selection.
The Body of Christ differs from the world in two areas. First of all, it is self-similar to a quantum and therefore utterly free (that's what Truth does, after all). The world is self-similar to a big rock and caught in her destiny.
The second difference is that light (which is knowledge, and upon which all trade is based) is absorbed and in stead of turned into personal mass, dispersed freely among the participants. Honesty and brotherly love (or faithfulness and truth) are the two human qualities that are the most corroding to a capitalistic system. Its motivation can not be understood by capitalism; its purpose can not be bought and its Word can not be translated or completely explained. It can only be enjoyed.
