A Universalist Eschatology of Humanity’s Three-fold Nature

Below is a meta-heuristic outline of my theological anthropology. Systematically, this is where I provisionally closed last year (2020). This is to say that it feels like I have already said all that I really wanted to say, theologically. My next life task may be to express it all differently, somehow, e.g. accessibly, concretely, spiritually, etc. So far, I’ve neither felt such an urge nor heard from my Muse.

In a nutshell, I have come to believe that, in the end,

1) that we’ll exist is wholly determined. “We’ll” refers cosmotheandrically;

2) that our original beatitude will be restored; that our primary nature, including our experience of an essential aesthetic intensity, will be wholly determined; and

3) that our theotic nature and secondary beatitudes, including our degrees of intimacy and scopes of aesthetic experience, will remain wholly indetermined.

1) vestigial Dei
  a) indicative apocata
  b) original being restored
  c) existentially determined
  d) ecclesiologically, unitive dynamics restore our essential belongingness

2) imaginal Dei
  a) indicative apocatastenai
  b) original beatitude restored
  c) primary nature determined
  d) soteriologically, sacramental dynamics restore our aesthetic intensity

3) similitudinal Dei
  a) subjunctive apocatastasis
  b) secondary beatitudes realized
  c) theotic nature indetermined
  d) sophiologically, intimacization dynamics expand our aesthetic scopes

And that’s the basic thrust of my Cosmotheandric Pan-semio-entheism.

Addendum regarding Types of Participation

I. Ontological or enstatic participations (vestigial) of primary natures

acts of existence – essential potencies (formal intelligibilities of whatness) reduced by existential acts (facticities or relationalities of thatness)

II. Perichoretic or hypostatic participations (imaginal) of personal natures

acts of will – material potencies (haecceities of howness incl when & where) reduced by efficient acts (volitions of whoness)

III. Teleological or ecstatic participations (similitudinal) of secondary natures

acts of becoming – final potencies (communion as ultimate whyness) reduced by formal acts (communicative & habitual – as in virtuous &/or vicious)
