What I have found interesting is that The John Templeton Foundation uses the nautilus as its logo. This is one of the most illustrative examples of the phi spiral in nature. Yet, they still ignore this as motion. One has to shake ones head at how the logarithms are ignored in physics, math and biology.

The science of motion, physics, still has no clue that motion is a logarithmic spiral.

The science of pattern, mathematics, still has no clue that the pattern of nature is a projection with quantum changes.

The science of life, biology, still does not recognize the spiral nature of life. Even though DNA, the spiral pattern of life, is a logarithmic spiral.

It is a wonder. :?:

Thanks for the link Nelsong. It's heartening that some prominent people are highly devoted to the furthering of understanding and development of mankind in the deepest sense. If you haven't read or heard Dr. Rupert Sheldrake you might find his material and approach extremely interesting.

This weekend I started reading, yet again, Gopi Krishna's autobiographical account of his many year struggle with a very intense and life threatening Kundalini awakening. He is unique as an educated person with a Hindu background who came to understand that certain super-biological phenomena foster the evolution of mankind and that we have an exquisite destiny in front of us.

Thanks for bringing in the John Templeton foundation website link.

Late Mr Templeton [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Templeton] was indeed a highly successful personality of modern world who made a fortune perhaps greater than Alfred Nobel and willed to use that fortune for a much better philanthropic purpose through the Templeton foundation. Read also his life story here @ https://www.templeton.org/sir-john-templeton/life-story

In one of the pages of the foundation I find this quote attributed to this great human being of modern times:

Quote:
What is the best way to live? How large is God? How are finite beings related to the infinite? What was God's purpose in creating the universe? How can we be helpful? These ageless questions can inspire people today just as they have inspired people throughout the ages, linking the human soul to philosophy and to the love of wisdom.


Did he ever chance to read the Urantia Book? Did the FER become a catalyst for his thoughts and actions? We do not know.

Yet, the values for which he stood intrigue me.

Rajan,
Templeton was suggested to me by a sister on a Urantia forum and I had just about the same response to it as you.
