ON THE SUBJECT OF THE ‘WORD MADE FLESH’

The idea of creativity is one of the oldest ideas in the world, but it is also one of the least understood because the popular view is that creativity comes easily by letting your sense perception loose and engaging your mind in some form of free association. Nothing is further from the truth.

Once you see how John the Apostle and Saint Irenaeus of Lyons demonstrate the full significance of the idea of the “Word made flesh,” you will discover that if you apply to your intellect the same beryl looking glass of Nicholas of Cusa as “Word made flesh,” it will glow as the light of the creative process of God’s Mind.

          However, I must warn you that I have no intention of approaching this difficult biblical text from the religious exegetical standpoint of faith; I intend to approach it from the vantage point of epistemology; that is, from the vantage point of how reason must seek to know the nature of that paradoxical statement as a matterofmind.
