Utterances of AL

Marcus explaining his ideas on reality and relationships

This fourth episode is a continued reading of my original and highly unusual short illustrated booklet, aided by 'Comic AL', makes the link between the formation of the universe and the way we humans function. The idea of ten "fracALities" are introduced to clarify the comparisons, showing how they give rise to our needs in life. The importance of "perfect love" in truly meeting our needs and those of our neighbours is emphasised. The booklet concludes with an introduction to the Octaikon schema that shows graphically how all the fracALities relate, giving links to a website for further study.

In celebration of Pentecost 2020, this compilation of The Lord's Prayer in ten languages was put together for the Blackfriars 9.30 congregation by Jill Elliott and Gilli and Marcus Robbins. The order of languages and speakers is: English (Geoff and Gill Emerson), French (Caroline Higginbottom), German (Maria Pretzler), Greek (Richard Ounsworth OP), Hungarian (Katalin Pech), Spanish (Anna Lucas), Swedish (Josephine Robbins), Croatian (Jelena Robbins), Latin (Richard Ounsworth OP), and Nepali (Gilli Robbins). Thank you all for your contributions!

The ten facets are summarised, and a final principle of divine love is introduced, showing how the facets are all interconnected and need that love to be balanced and bound together.

The facets of internality and relationality are discussed, giving a fifth principle of being: "Externalised relations". This states that everything has an internal "self" that needs to connect with others to give enduring external relationships.

The facets of intellectuality and phenomenality are discussed, giving a fourth principle of being: "Expressed intelligence". This states that everything has an intelligence that needs to express itself to give it meaning.

The facets of differentiality and integrality are discussed, giving a third principle of being: "Integrated separation". This states that everything has component parts that need to form a greater whole that has a higher purpose.

The facets of materiality and motionality are discussed, giving a second principle of being: "Changing permanence". This states that everything has a physicality that needs to embody motion to give it substance.
