Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Pere Teilhard de Chardin – Phenomenon of Man
Thus with the absorption of heat [there built up] certain carbonate hydrates or hydrites and nitrates – polymers – where particles concatenate, group themselves and exchange positions, in a theoretically endless network. Only this time it is molecules with molecules in such a way as to form on each occasion … an even larger and more complex molecule.
This is the world of organic compounds, we live among them and are made of them…
Despite its incredible wealth of forms, which far surpasses the variety of mineral compounds, [the world of organic compounds] contains such a tiny part of the substance of the earth that we are instinctively inclined to relegate it to a minor position of geo-chemistry.
