Finititude, pain and transubstantiation

13 Apr

We have already affirmed that the whole path made Gadamer has elements toEucaristiaUniverso conclude that experience is the awareness of human finiteness itself and of limitations, and we quote Aeschylus’ classic reference which is quite illustrative: “to learn from suffering,” that is, In a painful way, man becomes aware of his separation from the divinity and temporality of his existence, but what is existence as spirit and biological matter?
To deal with nature, we have already said it implies differentiating the natural from the cultural, but if we think about the meaning of astrophysics and the formation of the cosmos and the planets, we will arrive where? When the first organic substance was formed, and how it came out of the nature of chemical compounds, rocks and cosmic dust.
It is known that water was an important element, but the first organic compound certainly originated from gases acting on some inorganic body, that is, somehow the first “substance” occurred, that is, an organic life formed from Of the inorganic.
But the opposite would be possible, an organic substance turn into inorganic, yes it is what happens to death, we can think of the pain as little announcements of a death of something organic in our organism that ceases to have a functionally correct form.
But transubstantiation is something more mysterious and profound, it would be consciously an organic Being to become an inorganic, and in the case of the early Christian mystic, the piece of unleavened bread, this comes from the Feast of Unleavened Bread made by the Jews from Moses until Our day in which the Eucharist means the transformation of the body and blood of Jesus into consecrated wafer, food for the disconnected soul of the cosmos, in this mystery, its reconnection with the cosmos, and therefore the true religation and thus essence of this “religion” Which is religare.
His feast is made on Holy Thursday, but transubstantiation is the feast of the whole cosmos, for at some point in history the sacred “body” has become a universe, and now this body becomes a piece of bread, a “Transubstantiation” that returns us to the whole universe
