Harmonizing Evolutionary Convergence

Glossary Menus


Omega denotes ‘end’, the glorious culmination of all convergent evolutionary processes in Wholeness, not at some point in the distant future, but right Now, beyond space and time. In The Human Phenomenon, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin foresaw that evolution would reach its Omega Point when all its divergent streams converged in a megasynthesis of everything.

I first became aware that evolution had fulfilled Teilhard’s prophecy within me in April 1982, when I was helping to design and implement a management accounting system for the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research.

While this was one of the most exciting moments in my life, it was also the most terrifying. For the fundamental law of the Universe was telling me that humankind is born to die; Homo sapiens, as a biological species, is not immortal. One day, within a relatively short time, a generation of children would be born who would not grow old enough to have children of their own. This insight has governed every moment of my life since then, initially inspired by Teilhard’s vision of the end days of humanity:

The way out for the world, the gates of the future, the entry into the superhuman, will not open ahead to some privileged few, or to a single people, elect among all peoples. They will yield only to the thrust of all together in the direction where all can rejoin and complete one another in a spiritual renewal of the Earth.

For myself, I ingenuously visualized that humankind could live peacefully during its final years in the eschatological Age of Light, beyond conflict and suffering. And this could come about by collectively completing the final revolution in science, just as Isaac Newton had completed the first in 1687 with the Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy.

To conquer the fear of death, the mystical experiences that I have also since enjoyed have led me to follow Jñāna-yoga, as the Eastern spiritual practice that complements Integral Relational Logic, the commonsensical system of thought we all implicitly use every day to form concepts and organize our ideas.

For, as Alpha and Omega are one by the Cosmic Equation, Omega also denotes the end point for involution, at the Alpha Point of evolution, as the Divine Origin of the Cosmos, the Ultimate Source of Life. The Grand Design of the Universe and the Glossary entries on Collumination and human species illustrate this indivisibility, denoting that there is no beginning or end in Reality, no birth and death as apparently separate events.

In the words of John of Patmos in the Book of Revelation, following an apocalyptic awakening, we can say, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.” By following the Third Way, Panosophers thus complete the Cosmogonic Cycle, having revealed Love, Peace, Wholeness, and the Truth as the True Nature and Divine Essence of all humans.


Middle English omega ‘last of a series, last word’, from Greek ō mega, large O, the last letter (Ω, ω) of the Greek alphabet, having originally the value of long open ō.
