In 1882 Nietzsche declared that God was dead, God would remain dead and that we had killed him. Current scientific research, however, seems to support the idea that God is coming back to life, so to speak. In the fourth episode of the Martinus Cosmology Podcast, Mary McGovern interviews Jens Christian Hermansen, Ph.D., a sociologist and lecturer at The University of Copenhagen, about Martinus’s concept of God and about how it relates to current research into consciousness.
Martinus writes that God consists of all living beings in the endless universe. God experiences life through these living beings. And the experience of every living being is God’s experience. The living beings are God’s sensory organs through which he creates and experiences. God is not outside his creation but is an integral part of it. Every experience that we have is a direct communication with God, since nothing exists outside God. Through this infinite, eternal universe God experiences himself and unfolds his consciousness, his will, his life and his way of being. This makes every experience of life, whether pleasant or unpleasant, a sacred encounter that offers the potential for the development of an intimate relationship to God and a transformation of daily life.
