The Infinite and the Finite

This transaction is from a lecture delivered by the Reverend Clifford Harley on part I of Swedenborg’s Divine Love and Wisdom at the Swedenborg Society on the 19th of October 1954.

This is an ‘exchange of ideas’ about love, the nature of reality and how God fits into these concerns.  Here’s one interesting quote:

“…there is no such thing as ‘intrinsic space’.  The creation of objects is the creation of space.  Created things are bounded things and their boundaries mark their limitations.  It is the boundaries that mark their limitations.  It is the boundaries which distinguish between one object and another that give rise to that appearance which we call space […] Space is not created and filled with things.  Things are created and they make space”.

This text makes you think and question things that are often taken for granted.

You can buy Divine Love and Wisdom (£4.40) and The Infinite and the Finite (£2) at our bookshop or on our website.
