In the beginning was the light, Space, Time and the Word, and all was with God, and all was Christ. Christ was before the beginning. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him, nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was a singularity, and the life was created from the big bang by Christ Evolution.

The Big Bang theory is the prevailing cosmological model for the universe from the earliest known periods through its subsequent large-scale evolution. The model accounts for the fact that the universe expanded from a very high density and high-temperature state, and offers a comprehensive explanation for a broad range of observed phenomena, including the abundance of light elements, the cosmic microwave background, large-scale structure, and Hubble’s Law. If the known laws of physics are extrapolated beyond where they are valid, there is a singularity. Modern measurements place this moment at approximately 13.8 billion years ago, which is thus considered the age of the universe. After the initial expansion, the universe cooled sufficiently to allow the formation of subatomic particles and later simple atoms. Giant clouds of these primordial elements later coalesced through gravity to form stars and galaxies.
Since the Catholic priest Georges Lemaître first noted, in 1927, that an expanding universe might be traced back in time to an originating single point, scientists have built on his idea of cosmic expansion. While the scientific community was once divided between supporters of two different expanding universe theories, the Big Bang and the Steady State theory, accumulated empirical evidence provides strong support for the former. In 1929, from analysis of galactic redshifts, Edwin Hubble concluded that galaxies are drifting apart, important observational evidence consistent with the hypothesis of an expanding universe. In 1965, the cosmic microwave background radiation was discovered, which was crucial evidence in favour of the Big Bang model, since that theory predicted the existence of background radiation throughout the universe before it was discovered. More recently, measurements of the redshifts of supernovae indicate that the expansion of the universe is accelerating, an observation attributed to dark energy’s existence. The known physical laws of nature can be used to calculate the characteristics of the universe in detail back in time to an initial state of extreme density and temperature.
Georges Henri Joseph Édouard Lemaître; 17 July 1894 – 20 June 1966, was a Belgian priest, astronomer and professor of physics at the Catholic University of Leuven. He proposed the theory of the expansion of the universe, widely misattributed to Edwin Hubble. He was the first to derive what is now known as Hubble’s law and made the first estimation of what is now called the Hubble constant, which he published in 1927, two years before Hubble’s article. Lemaître also proposed what became known as the Big Bang theory of the origin of the Universe, which he called his “hypothesis of the primeval atom” or the “Cosmic Egg”. According to the Big Bang theory, the universe emerged from an extremely dense and hot state a singularity that we name Christ. Space itself has been expanding ever since, carrying galaxies with it, like raisins in a rising loaf of bread. The graphic scheme above is an artist’s conception illustrating the expansion of a portion of a flat universe.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin SJ 1 May 1881 – 10 April 1955 was a French philosopher and Jesuit priest who trained as a paleontologist and geologist and took part in the discovery of Peking Man. He conceived the idea of the Omega Point with a maximum level of complexity and consciousness towards which he believed the universe was evolving and developed Vladimir Vernadsky’s concept of the noosphere.

Christ as the logos
Christian theologians often consider John 1:1 to be a central text in their belief that Jesus is God, in connection with the idea that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are equals. Though only in this verse is Jesus referred to as the Word of God, the theme transposed throughout the Gospel of John with variations. Theologian N.T. Wright characterizes “Word” (logos) as being incomprehensible in human language. He claims that through belief the Logos will transform people with its judgment and mercy. According to Wright, John’s view of the Incarnation, of the Word becoming flesh, strikes at the very root of what he terms “the liberal denial…of the idea of God becoming human….” His assessment is that when the “enfleshment” and speaking Word is removed from the center of Christian theology, all that is left is “a relativism whose only moral principle is that there are no moral principles, no words of judgment (because nothing is really wrong, except saying that things are wrong), no words of mercy (because you’re all right as you are, so all you need is affirmation).” Theologian Stephen L. Harris claims the author of John adapted Philo’s concept of the Logos, identifying Jesus as an incarnation of the divine Logos that formed the universe (cf. Proverbs 8:22-36).
To the rabbis who spoke of the Torah (Law) as preexistent, as God’s instrument in creation, and is the source of light and life, John replied that these claims apply rather to the Logos.
To the Gnostic who would deny a real incarnation, John’s answer was most emphatic: “the Word became flesh.”[Jn 1:14] Followers of John the Baptist. To those who stopped with John the Baptist, he made it clear that John was not the Light but only witness to the Light. [Jn 1:6ff]. Although the term Logos is not retained as a title beyond the prologue, the whole book of John presses these basic claims. As the Logos, Jesus Christ is God in self-revelation (Light) and redemption (Life). He is God to the extent that he can be present to man and knowable to man. The Logos is God,[Jn 1:1] as Thomas stated: “My Lord and my God.”[20:28] Yet the Logos is in some sense distinguishable from God, for “the Logos was with God.”[1:1] God and the Logos are not two beings, and yet they are also not simply identical. In contrast to the Logos, God can be conceived (in principle at least) also apart from his revelatory action─although we must not forget that the Bible speaks of God only in his revelatory action. The paradox that the Logos is God and yet it is in some sense distinguishable from God is maintained in the body of the Gospel. That God as he acts and as he is revealed does not “exhaust” God as he is, is reflected in sayings attributed to Jesus: “I and the Father are one”[Jn 10:30] and also, “the Father is greater than I.”[14:28] The Logos is God active in creation, revelation, and redemption. Jesus Christ not only gives God’s Word to us humans; he is the Word. He is the true word─ultimate reality revealed in a Person. The Logos is God, distinguishable in thought yet not separable in fact. This was decreed at the First Council of Constantinople (381)
Transcendent In philosophy, the adjective transcendental and the noun transcendence convey the basic ground concept from the word’s literal meaning (from Latin), of climbing or going beyond, albeit with varying connotations in its different historical and cultural stages. This article covers the topic from a Western perspective by epoch: Ancient, Medieval, and modern, primarily Continental philosophy.
The first meaning, as part of the concept pair transcendence/immanence, is used primarily with reference to God’s relation to the world and is particularly important in theology. Here transcendent means that God is completely outside of and beyond the world, as contrasted with the notion that God is manifested in the world. This meaning originates both in the Aristotelian view of God as the prime mover, a non-material self-consciousness that is outside of the world. Philosophies and philosophers of immanence such as stoicism or pantheism, Spinoza or Deleuze maintain that God is manifested in and fully present in the world and the things in the world.
The Omega Point
The Omega Point cannot be the result of the universe’s final complex stage of its own consciousness. Instead, the Omega Point must exist even before the universe’s evolution, because the Omega Point is responsible for the rise of the universe towards more complexity, consciousness and personality. Which essentially means that the Omega Point is outside the framework in which the universe rises because it is by the attraction of the Omega Point that the universe evolves towards Him.

Noogenesis Ancient Greek mind + becoming is the emergence of intelligent forms of life. The term was first used by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin in regard to the evolution of humans. It also used in astrobiology in regard to the emergence of forms of life capable of technology and so interstellar communication and travel.
Teilhard de Chardin has two comprehensive works. The first, The Phenomenon of Man, sets forth a sweeping account of the unfolding of the cosmos and the evolution of matter to humanity to ultimately a reunion with Christ. Chardin abandoned literal interpretations of creation in the Book of Genesis in favour of allegorical and theological interpretations. In his posthumously published book, The Phenomenon of Man, Teilhard writes of the unfolding of the material cosmos, from primordial particles to the development of life, human beings and the noosphere, and finally to his vision of the Omega Point in the future, which is “pulling” all creation towards it. He was a leading proponent of orthogenesis, the idea that evolution occurs in a directional, goal-driven way, argued in terms that today go under the banner of convergent evolution. Teilhard argued in Darwinian terms with respect to biology, and supported the synthetic model of evolution, but argued in Lamarckian terms for the development of culture, primarily through the vehicle of education. Teilhard made a total commitment to the evolutionary process in the 1920s as the core of his spirituality, at a time when other religious thinkers felt evolutionary thinking challenged the structure of conventional Christian faith. He committed himself to what the evidence showed.
Teilhard’s life work was predicated on the conviction that human spiritual development is moved by the same universal laws as material development. He wrote, “…everything is the sum of the past” and “…nothing is comprehensible except through its history. ‘Nature’ is the equivalent of ‘becoming’, self-creation: this is the view to which experience irresistibly leads us. … There is nothing, not even the human soul, the highest spiritual manifestation we know of, that does not come within this universal law.” There is no doubt that The Phenomenon of Man represents Teilhard’s attempt at reconciling his religious faith with his academic interests as a paleontologist. One particularly poignant observation in Teilhard’s book entails the notion that evolution is becoming an increasingly optional process. Teilhard points to the societal problems of isolation and marginalization as huge inhibitors of evolution, especially since evolution requires a unification of consciousness. He states that “no evolutionary future awaits anyone except in association with everyone else.” Teilhard argued that the human condition necessarily leads to the psychic unity of humankind, though he stressed that this unity can only be voluntary; this voluntary psychic unity he termed “unanimization.” Teilhard also states that “evolution is an ascent toward consciousness”, giving encephalization as an example of early stages, and therefore, signifies a continuous upsurge toward the Omega Point, which for all intents and purposes, is God.
Teilhard also used his perceived correlation between spiritual and material to describe Christ, arguing that Christ not only has a mystical dimension but also takes on a physical dimension as he becomes the organizing principle of the universe—that is, the one who “holds together” the universe (Col. 1:17b). For Teilhard, Christ forms not only the eschatological end toward which his mystical/ecclesial body is oriented but he also “operates physically in order to regulate all things” becoming “the one from whom all creation receives its stability.” In other words, as the one who holds all things together, “Christ exercises a supremacy over the universe which is physical, not simply juridical. He is the unifying centre of the universe and its goal. The function of holding all things together indicates that Christ is not only man and God; he also possesses a third aspect—indeed, a third nature—which is cosmic.” In this way, the Pauline description of the Body of Christ is not simply a mystical or ecclesial concept for Teilhard; it is cosmic. This cosmic Body of Christ “extend[s] throughout the universe and comprise[s] all things that attain their fulfillment in Christ
The Body of Christ is the one single thing that is being made in creation.” Teilhard describes this cosmic amassing of Christ as “Christogenesis.” According to Teilhard, the universe is engaged in Christogenesis as it evolves toward its full realization at Omega, a point which coincides with the fully realized Christ. It is at this point that God will be ‘all in all’ (1Cor. 15:28c)
Matthew Fox (priest)
Matthew Fox (born Timothy James Fox in 1940) is an American priest and theologian. Formerly a member of the Dominican Order within the Roman Catholic Church, he became a member of the Episcopal Church following his expulsion from the order in 1993. Fox was an early and influential exponent of a movement that came to be known as Creation Spirituality. The movement draws inspiration from the mystical philosophies of such medieval Catholic visionaries as Hildegard of Bingen, Thomas Aquinas, Saint Francis of Assisi, Julian of Norwich, Dante Alighieri, Meister Eckhart and Nicholas of Cusa, as well as the wisdom traditions of Christian scriptures. Creation Spirituality is also strongly aligned with ecological and environmental movements of the late 20th century and embraces numerous spiritual traditions around the world, including Buddhism, Judaism, Sufism, and Native American spirituality, with a focus on “deep ecumenism”.
Fox’s conception of Creation Spirituality draws on both a close reading of early and medieval mystics within Catholic traditions as well as ecstatic and spiritual practices from numerous other faiths around the world, in an approach Fox called “deep ecumenism” for its connections across many spiritual practices. This was described most particularly in his book One River, Many Wells: Wisdom Springing from Global Faith.
Creation Spirituality considers itself a “green” theology, emphasizing a holy relationship between humanity and nature. Accordingly, the protection of nature is considered a sacrament and an expression of God and a “Cosmic Christ”. This approach was endorsed by eco-theologian Thomas Berry among others. Fox’s book The Coming of the Cosmic Christ: The Healing of Mother Earth and the Birth of a Global Renaissance delves more into these issues.
Fox also laid out other tenets of Creation Spirituality in some of his other books, particularly Original Blessing and A Spirituality Named Compassion.
Fox’s 1996 autobiography, Confessions: The Making of a Post-Denominational Priest, describes his life as a Dominican priest and his struggle with the Vatican as he wrote about his experiences and understanding of early Christianity.
Fox was the first to translate Meister Eckhart into English from the critical German editions along with a commentary on his work and helped to launch the Hildegard of Bingen revival. His book on the mysticism of Thomas Aquinas translates many of his works that have never before been translated into English, German or French.
Fox’s theological positions have been categorized as a type of panentheism. A New Reformation, Fox argued that two Christianities already exist and it is time for a new reformation to acknowledge that fact and move the Western spiritual tradition into new directions.
M. Scott Peck: Community and the Cosmic Christ …the number of people entering the mystical stage of development and transcending ordinary culture seems to have increased a thousandfold in the course of a mere generation or two…one wonders if the explosion in their numbers might represent a giant leap forward in the evolution of the human race, a leap toward not only mystical but global consciousness and world community…. Perhaps the greatest prophet of this leap was Teilhard de Chardin.
—M. Scott Peck, The Different Drum (http://www.spiritual research-network.com/m_scott_peck_community_cosmic_christ.html)
Father Ratzinger, ex-pope and ex-Inquisitor, he will do some soul searching, now is the time for the Holy Spirit to push the restart button on Christianity, both Catholic and Protestant versions, for the essence of Jesus’ teaching and the Cosmic Christ tradition.
Franciscan Sr. Ilia Delio, she is the rare theologian with doctoral degrees in both science and theology and a teacher of the vast interconnectedness of human beings, God, and the universe base on Chardin Cosmic Christ and the wholeness of being. The award-winning author of Christ in Evolution and The Emergent Christ breaks new ground with this capstone in a trilogy that opens our eyes to the everywhere active, all powerful, all intelligent Love that guides and directs our new awareness of interrelatedness and interbeing. As Delio writes, “We all have a part to play in this unfolding Love; we are wholes within wholes; persons within persons; religions within religions. We are one body and we seek one mind and heart so that the whole may become more whole, more personal and unified in love. This is our Christian vocation, to live in the Christ who is rising up from the ashes of death to become for us the God of the future.”. The Unbearable Wholeness of Being.

Eric Michel, all the persons we can read in here are members of the Catholic Clergy, are you on the same thought and are you going back to the Catholic Denomination in regard of your Cosmic Christ?
Lol no not at all, it has too many things that I do not agree with their dogma…
The Catholic clergy brings a lot of good theories that I consider as facts, but their Cosmic Christ is base on the Catholic faith, not mine, remember that I’m Unitarian, and my noosphere is the one of the Noetic (See noetic.org), Like Fr. Robert Spitzer said:”God is outside our universe or multiverses) and the noosphere that controls anything and everything that we call Cosmic Christ.
Rev. Eric Michel
In a near future I will publish a document, already in progress, about Eric Michel History from 1979 to now, here a sample:
2015 (beginning of)
My enlightenment by the Muslim faith Reza Aslan author of Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, in a TV interview, he said that all we say about Jesus of Nazareth is true and all in the bible say about Jesus Christ it is true also.
Wow! what I always knew and preach. It has Jesus of Nazareth and Jesus the Cosmic Christ. The end of argumentation about the historical Jesus and the Jesus of Faith…
1984 September – May 2011
I went back to school, Quebec University in Hull and The Dominican College in Ottawa. During this time, with co-students and friends the foundation of Society Universal of New Syncretism, we were twelve and then SUNS was born (1979 by myself and 1984 with the twelve), a Gnostic Church. (no no not like the apostles and their leader remember they were 13).
In 1993 we became the Universal Christian Gnostic Church (EGCU) who became: “Research, Theology and Teaching Ministry” of EMMI today.
1987 I was ordained on December 7th. and became a Bi-vocational Pastor the church is at 70% similar to the Catholic but with a good 30% that came from the early Christian and the Apocrypha gospels. Our Gnostic organization had no secrets, no magic healing and no (Anything you might think of…) we just add to it the belief of Mani re. the two Gods.
My earlier research has begun when a Grade 8 teacher asked us to do a research for homework, I had no idea what theme to choose, by chance my father left on a buffet document from a club on UFOs when I’m just 14 or 15 years old. By nature I always as far as I can remember liking esoteric stuff and I was interested in these things when the opportunity arise. I read a lot from 1977 and from books to books, I started to question my faith, it is true everything we have learned in the little catechist and sacred history?
Born into a Roman Catholic family and my grandparents were more Catholic than the Pope …
I put myself in search of the truth while continuing with my reading and watching television from Karl the Night Stalker program to X-File, with all included we can see in the 50’s to the 90’s, after a long research on the truth I establish a syncretic group including the teaching of the spiritual masters Mani which Christian belonging to the current Gnostic prophet Alkhasaï. Mani says very early in contact with an angel and is an imitator of Jesus’ life. He began to preach to 240 but it was his encounter with the Sassanid king Shapur I in 250 that will decide the success of his doctrine: the monarch conceived the interest of a national religion to unify his empire. The monarch gave him So the right to freely spread his teaching throughout the Empire Persia. The new faith quickly grew and communities multiplied under his watchful eye. Mani preached in Aramaic as Jesus had done, and Buddha including spiritualism and the spiritual discoveries that I had founded with eleven friends who invested body and soul to the task to establish in 1979/1987 the first group of exegetes.
A fall out from a Bible course at the Dominicans at University College on Empress Avenue Ottawa, Ontario. It is at this precise moment, during a class, our teacher an over 80 years old priest, had been criticized the TOB (Ecumenical Translation of the Bible) that old geezer contradicted the Teaching of the University of Quebec in Sherbrooke at the TV station Radio-Québec where a modern teacher and his team who have a very well historically documenting Bible events but also on additional information footnotes pages of the saying TOB, the word of the Bible was direct from God himself and that’s the facts textually are real (based on his interpretation properly understood) and disowned the archaeological evidence and new discoveries, it broke my heart, I was wrong not to understand the rejection of science.
Thus was born the Universal Society of New Syncretism. I remember my friend, dear Sylvain helping me to develop for several nights an artwork that represented our logo who will represent all the church teaching in a glance in 1991.
We were 12 members located in the city of Hull on Benedict Street.
In 1993 all members separated for many reasons. I returned to work for an organization that help substance abuse people as a street worker.
The Link Or Return To The Origin
The Cosmic Christ can be defined as that aspect of God which pervades all of creation, the Christ who “fills the universe in all its parts” (Ephesians 1:23).
The Franciscan teaching of this is based firmly in the theology of Bonaventure and Scotus that flows from the spirituality of Francis and Clare and their early followers. It is basically Trinity-centered and Christ-centered. The Cosmic Christ may include if existence is proved of the multiverses.
From Gnostic teaching to the new catholic teaching at EMMI
In May 2012 I’m ordained Unitarian Minister
and in 2015 EMMI Christian Unitarian Chaplaincy changed to Inter-Denominational Christian Chaplaincy where all Christians of any denominations can be a member.
- The word catholic (with lowercase c; derived via Late Latin catholicus, from the Greek adjective katholikos, meaning “universal” comes from the Greek phrase katholou, meaning “on the whole”, “according to the whole” or “in general”, and is a combination of the Greek words “about” and “whole”.
- catholic is an adjective synonym of universal, diverse, diversified, wide, broad, broad-based, eclectic, liberal, latitudinarian; from Old French Catholique or late Latin catholicus, from Greek katholikos ‘universal,’ from kata ‘with respect to’ + holos ‘whole.’
So we are catholic but NOT of the Catholic faith
To be catholic is to participate in christogenesis attentive to the spirit who is creating all new. The energy of wholeness, a new catholicity, a new creation Christ Omega
CATHOLICITY is the energy of evolution, the spirit of love toward Omega.
God is a transcendent entity unknowable (like the Deism) through our limited human senses
God the ONE, the Divine, the Source, the Good created the Aeons.
Eons are principles of spiritual elements: the Truth, the Faith, Love, Intelligence and Sophia (Wisdom)
Our goal is to live in Harmony, in fullness toward heaven
Sofia (an Aeons emanate from God)
Sofia created Christ the Creator, the Craftsman
Jesus words:”the kingdom of heaven is here”. It’s a spiritual transcendence achievable in this life, in this body, right here and now, freedom is within.
Gnosis is a special spiritual knowledge that’s sometimes like what we might call revelation. It is a spiritual insight into the meaning and nature of the thing. Gnostics believe that human contains in themselves a part of the Divine and with they own power the achievement of salvation.
Christ is not human at all but only seems to be. Jesus and Christ are a separate being, Jesus is human.
Christ a spiritual Principe that enabled him great things.
Jesus became Christ when Sofia called the Logos on him at his baptism.
Gnostic believe that human could symbolically die in the physical world and resurrect through knowledge of the Christ within.
Christ The Big Bang
From Ilia Delio Teaching adapted to my own Gnostic faith.
Catholicity is the energy of evolution toward Omega.
We need to change our metaphysics science to the new one the hyper-physic
Christianity was mostly created in the middle age from the teaching of the ancient Greeks and was geocentric. All turn around the earth and we human at is the centre.
Now with all the facts, we can extrapolate our story of knowledge, our revelation as we are all part of the Divine caused by the big bang and the fall out of a supernova on earth through the evolution we were born (Darwin) and in us, we are part of God/Christ. Sofia created Christ the Creator, the Craftsman or God wisdom named Christ created a singularity that bangs the universe in a second and it’s expansion during the time.
Christ is the spark, the singularity
Christ is the evolution from the big bang in a union of love.
Christ is the motif of Creation
Christ is the whole cosmos
Christ is the Redeemer
The big bang is the unfolding of God consciousness
Jesus is the evolution
Jesus is the whole maker
Where all religions will converge toward the Omega Point
We are the universe and the universe is in us. (Like in Stardust), also we are part of the universe evolution. All are interconnected and lie at the core of all that exists and are interdependent.
I believe in:
Spirit of love
Gathering all into the new creation.
