God gave us TWO books
- The book of how to live in the community (The Jewish Bible Law)
- The book of nature (The Nature Law)
God made no miracles it will be against Its own nature’s law
- We do not see any of them today

The Book of Nature is a religious and philosophical concept originating in the Latin Middle Ages which views nature as a book to be read for knowledge and understanding. There also was a book written by Konrad of Megenberg in the 14th century with the original German title of “Buch der Natur”. Early theologians believed the Book of Nature was a source of God’s revelation to mankind: when read alongside sacred scripture, the “book” of nature and the study of God’s creations would lead to a knowledge of God himself. The concept corresponds to the early Greek philosophical belief that man, as part of a coherent universe, is capable of understanding the design of the natural world through reason. The concept is frequently deployed by philosophers, theologians, and scholars. The first use of the phrase is unknown. However, Galileo used the phrase, quoting Tertullian, when he wrote of how ” “We conclude that God is known first through Nature, and then again, more particularly, by doctrine; by nature in His works, and by doctrine in His revealed word.” Adversus Marcionem, I, 18..”
Scholars, natural philosophers, emerging naturalists, and other readers of the new Book of Nature enthusiastically renewed their investigation of the natural world. Alongside Sacred Scripture, the Book of Nature also became a font of divine revelation and a source of knowledge of God. This also implied that for mankind, nature itself became a new authority concerning the divine. There now existed two ways of knowing God, two texts, or two “books”, sacred Scripture and the Book of Nature, and two separate authorities, which was disquieting to many contemporary observers. Which textual authority took precedence? How would inconsistencies between the two texts be resolved? Who would mediate between the two books and exercise final interpretive authority? As Harrison points out, the exegesis of the Book of Nature became a critical concern, especially to the Church. Religious indifference to the material world, which had survived for centuries, came to an end by the thirteenth century. Interest in nature by Church Fathers would transform the study of nature into a theological enterprise.The Book of Nature became a bestseller among clerics and theologians anxious for its knowledge in their search for divine truth and concern for preserving and strengthening the authority of the Church in all matters ecclesiastical, which now included the Book of Nature.

THE CHRIST NOOSPHERE MIRACLES
Noetic Sciences… A very cool thing, don’t just read Dan Brown’s book
Learn the real deal
Eric Michel Ministries Prayers are in Noetic Way.
So when going to our Chapel and request a prayer, we meditate on your demandand transmit it in a Noetic fashion…
What is Noetic Science?
Noetic Science studies intellectual and spiritual capabilities such as healing. Edgar Mitchell established this new field of science in 1973, in woo of his epiphany while travelling to and from the earth on his journey to the moon.
Some questions asked by Noetic Scientists usually consist of “Who are we?” “What are we capable of?” and so on….
We at Eric Michel Ministries don’t believe in Magic Miracles and Supernatural Powers but how many things that you heard that cannot be explained…!!?
From the Greek noēsis / noētikos, meaning inner wisdom, direct knowing, or subjective understanding.
Systems of acquiring knowledge that use observation, experimentation, andreplication to describe and explain natural phenomena.
A multidisciplinary field that brings objective scientific tools and techniques together with subjective inner knowing to study the full range of human experiences.
La Noétique (du grec ‘noûs’ : connaissance, esprit, intelligence) se concentre sur l’étude et le développement de toutes les formes de connaissance. Nous la définissonscomme “l’ensemble des arts, sciences et techniques de création, de formalisation, departage et de prolifération des Idées. C’est le domaine de la pensée, de laconnaissance, de l’intelligence”. Plus brièvement, nous dirions que c’est la science del’intelligence c-à-d la capacité de reliance dans toutes les dimensions.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This article is about an alternative theory of mind power.
Further information: NoologyIn philosophy, noetics is a branch of metaphysical philosophy concerned with the study of mind and intellect. Noetic topics include the doctrine of the agent/patient intellect (Aristotle, Averroes) and the doctrine of the divine Intellect (Plotinus)
Contemporary use More recently the term “noetics” has been employed by several authors who write about consciousness, spirituality and cosmology. The Institute of Noetic Sciences proposes noetic sciences as an alternative theory of “how beliefs, thoughts, and intentions affect the physical world.”
Some (such as the Institute of Noetic Sciences) claim that Noetics is actually a form of science. However, noetics have been harshly panned by the scientific community, and have been criticized for not experimenting in the generally accepted manner of the experiment first and analyzing of data afterwards, and for equating correlation and human emotions/experience with falsifiable evidence.Institute of Noetic Sciences
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) was co-founded in 1973 by former astronaut Edgar Mitchell and investor Paul N. Temple to encourage and conduct research on the noetic theory and human potentials. Institute programs include”extended human capacities”, “integral health and healing”, and “emerging world views”.This research includes topics such as spontaneous remission, meditation (EM prayer), consciousness, alternative healing practices (EM miracles), consciousness-based health care, spirituality, human potential, psychic abilities and survival of consciousness after bodily death.
Headquartered outside Petaluma, California, the organization is situated on a 200-acre (81 ha) campus that includes offices, a research laboratory, and a retreat center (originally the campus of World College West). The institute does not grant educational degrees. History Edgar Mitchell, co-founder of the institute.
The institute was co-founded in 1973 by Edgar Mitchell, an astronaut who was part of the Apollo 14 mission, investorPaul N. Temple and some others. During the three-day journey back to Earth aboard Apollo 14, Mitchell had anepiphany while looking down on the earth from space.
“The presence of divinity (EM Cosmic Christ) became almost palpable, and I knew that life in the universe was not just an accident based on random processes … The knowledge came to me directly,” Mitchell said of that experience. Following his spaceflight, Mitchell and others founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences. Willis Harman served as its president from 1975 until his death in 1997.
The word noetic is derived from the Greek nous, for which, according to the instituter’s website, there is no exact equivalent in English. It refers to “inner knowing,” a kind of intuitive consciousness, direct and immediate access to knowledge beyond what is available to our normal senses and the power of reason.
The Institute identifies three principal areas of interest: extended human capacities, integral health and healing, and emerging world views. Projects sponsored by the institute include a bibliography on the physical and psychological effects of meditation, a spontaneous remission bibliography, and studies on the efficacy of compassionate intention on healing in AIDS patients.
The institute has also conducted a number of para psychological studies into extra-sensory perception, lucid dreaming, and presentiment.
Since 2009, the Institute has published a semi-annual bulletin, The Noetic Post. From 2003 to 2009, it published a quarterly magazine,
At the Frontiers of Consciousness.In February 2007, IONS announced a co-publishing agreement with New Harbinger Publications. Noetic Books and New Harbinger partnered to publish books that incorporate science and focus on global issues, consciousness, spiritual and psychological wellness. Authors include Edmund Bourne, Charles Tart, and Marilyn Schlitz.Institute research has also been published as papers in peer-reviewed journals, including British Journal of Psychology Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine Journal of Consciousness, Studies Journal of Psychoactive Drugs Physics Essays Criticism Stephen Barrett, organizer of the nonprofit organization Quackwatch, whose website describes itself as a “Guide to quackery, Health Fraud, and Intelligent Decisions,” lists the Institute of Noetic Sciences as one of the 729 organizations that he views “with considerable distrust.”
Quackwatch is an American-based website founded by psychiatrist Stephen Barrett, with the stated aim being to”combat health-related frauds, myths, fads, fallacies, and misconduct” and with a primary focus on providing”quackery-related information that is difficult or impossible to get elsewhere.” Since 1996 it has operated the alternative medicine watchdog website, quackwatch.org, that advises the public on unproven or ineffective alternative medicine remedies. The site contains articles and other information criticizing many forms of alternative medicine.
Quackwatch cites peer-reviewed journal articles and has received several awards. The site is developed with assistance from a worldwide network of volunteers and expert advisors. It has received positive recognition and recommendation from mainstream organizations and sources. It has been recognized in the media, which cite quackwatch.org as a practical source for online consumer information.
The success of Quackwatch has generated the creation of 21 other related sites. The organization has often been challenged by supporters and practitioners of the various forms of alternative medicine that are criticized on the website.
Criticism about Quackwatch
A number of practitioners and supporters of alternative medicine oppose Barrett and Quackwatch. Donna Ladd, a journalist with The Village Voice, says Barrett relies heavily on negative research to criticize alternative medicine, rejecting most positive case studies as unreliable. She wrote that Barrett insists that most alternative therapies simply should be disregarded without further research. “A lot of things don’t need to be tested because they simply don make any sense,” he says, pointing to homeopathy, chiropractic, and acupuncture as examples of alternative treatments with no plausible mechanism of action.
Scientific Review of Alternative Medicine, Scientific Review of Alternative Medicine (SRAM) is a peer-reviewed medical journal published by the Commission for Scientific Medicine and Mental Health. SRAM was established by Wallace Sampson (Stanford University) and PaulKurtz (Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal). It claimed to be “the only peer-reviewed journal devoted exclusively to objectively analyzing the claims of ‘alternative medicine.'”The SRAM website states: The purpose of the Scientific Review of Alternative Medicine is to apply the best tools of science and reason to determine whether hypotheses are valid and treatments are effective. It will reject no claims because it fits, or fails to fit, some paradigm. It will simply seek justified answers to two questions: “Is it true?” and “Does this treatment work?”
A statement “In Defence of Scientific Medicine,” welcoming the founding of SRAM, was signed by a long list of notable individuals, including five Nobel laureates. The statement expressed skepticism towards alternative medicine and the need for “objective, scientific critiques” of the field. The journal was also welcomed by Science when it launched. SRAM was evaluated at least three times by the National Library of Medicine (NLM) for Medline/PubMed indexing but rejected each time. In an editorial published on the journal’s site, Sampson says that NLM director Donald Lindbergrevealed that the first review of SRAM had been performed by fourteen individuals or organizations who support alternative medicine. Sampson contends that, because SRAM critically examines alternative medicine, such a panel of reviewers would not be able to objectively consider the journal. According to Sampson, the only information he received regarding the third review was that it was conducted by NIH independent reviewers. Sampson states, “This was not what we had in mind when requesting outside review, as there was no assurance that the reviewers were either objective or authorities in pseudoscience.”Marilyn Schlitz, Ph.D. (born August 7, 1957) is a research scientist, medical anthropologist, and writer on the subjects of consciousness, healing, and consciousness-based healthcare. She is the current President and CEO of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Senior Scientist at the Research Institute of California Pacific Medical Center, and co-founder of the Integral Health Network, Inc. and Heallio.com. Your Healthy Living Network. Marilyn grew up in Detroit, Michigan and received a Bachelor of Philosophy Degree from Montieth College, Wayne State University. She also gained a Master’s Degree in Social and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Texas at San Antonio and received her Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Texas at Austin. From very early on in her career she was interested in remote viewing and similar ESP-themes. She has earned two postdoctoral fellowships: one from the Cognitive Sciences Laboratory at Science Applications International Corporation and one in psychology at Stanford University. Dr. Schlitz has published numerous articles on consciousness studies in both scholarly and popular journals, has lectured at institutions including the United Nations, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Explorers Club, and has taught at Trinity University, Stanford University, and Harvard Medical Centers. She is co-editor of consciousness and Healing: Integral Approaches to Mind-Body Medicine (Churchill Livingston/Elsevier, 2005) and co-author of Living Deeply: The Art and Science of Transformation in Everyday Life (New Harbinger/Noetic, 2008).Shenow calls herself Marilyn Mandala Schlitz.
Global consciousness (sometimes called “field consciousness”) is the notion that when groups of people focus their minds on the same thing, they influence “the world at large” Global consciousness is rejected by the Skeptics.

La noétique (terme dérivé de noèse) est une branche de la philosophie métaphysique concernant l’intellect et lapensée. Parmi ses centres d’intérêt on peut mentionner l’étude de la nature et du fonctionnement de l’intellecthumain et les liens entre cet intellect et l’intellect divin. C’est pourquoi la noétique a eu souvent des liens très étroitsavec la métaphysique. Dans la tradition occidentale et dans la philosophie arabe la noétique a été très influencéepar les théories de philosophes tels que Anaxagore, Aristote ou Platon.
Histoire de la noétique
Le Noûs d’Anaxagore Anaxagore soutenait que le noûs (esprit, intellect) était la cause de l’univers. L’intellect selon Aristote. Dans la tradition occidentale et dans la philosophie arabe, une bonne partie de la noétique s’est développée grâceà l’étude de certaines œuvres d’Aristote comme : La Métaphysique
Cet ouvrage présente le Moteur Premier qui estacte : il se pense lui-même. Dieu, comme acte pur, est le Moteur premier, éternel et immobile. Il meutimmédiatement, à titre de cause efficiente, par contact mais sans réciprocité et sans être lui-même touché, la Sphèredes Étoiles fixes et lui imprime un mouvement uniforme, continu et éternel, mouvement le plus voisin de l’immobilitéde l’Acte pur, et qui ressemble le plus parfaitementau mouvement propre de la pensée. Dieu est pensée de la pensée, pensée de soi. Aristote détermine l’activité du Premier Moteur, identifié à Dieu et au Bien de Platon, comme “pensée de la pensée” (νόησις νοήσεως). La Penséedivine se pense elle-même et elle est la Pensée de la Pensée : “L’Intelligence suprême se pense donc elle-même, puisqu’elle est ce qu’il y a de plus excellent, et sa Pensée est pensée de pensée” (Métaphysique, Lambda, 9, trad. J.Tricot, t. II, p. 701).
Cet ouvrage présente le processus de l’intellection des intelligibles (le pensable, l’objet de la pensée), à partir de la définition de l’âme et de ses facultés. L’âme a quatre facultés :
- Nutritive (végétative),
- Appétitive (motrice),
- Intellective (cogitative).
“L’âme (…) se définit par les fonctions nutritive, sensitive, cogitative et par le mouvement” (De l’âme, II, 2, 413 b 15). L’âme intellective (= lafaculté dianoétique, l’esprit cogitatif, la partie pensante) comprend un “intellect patient” (passif) et un “intellect agent”(actif) : “Il y a d’un côté l’intelligence caractérisée par le fait qu’elle devient toutes choses, et, de l’autre, celle qui se caractérise par le fait qu’elle produit toutes choses, comme une sorte d’étatcomparable à la lumière” (De l’âme, III, 5, 430 a 14-15, trad. R. Bodéüs, Garnier-Flammarion, 1993, p. 228). L’intellect agent est le principe actif de notre intellect, qui fait en sorte que notre intellect possible saisisse oudevienne les intelligibles (le pensable). L’Organon Développements des aristotéliciens
La Métaphysique Alexandre d’Aphrodise:
La Métaphysique, De Anima, De intellectu Alexandre semble poser, entre autres, l’identité entre l’intellect agent et la première cause (ou Dieu). Développements des néoplatoniciens Le néoplatonisme apporte à la noétique des solutions issues des réflexions sur l’Un et le Multiple principalement.
Les Ennéa des Plotin développe une théorie du processus d’émanation à partir de l’Un et de l’Intellect (Noûs).
Développements desphilosophes perses et arabes
Les philosophes arabes ont développé des notions et des théories noétiques originales pendant plusieurs siècles. Ils ont été généralement influencés par le néoplatonisme.
De intellectu Al Farabi: De Intellectu Et Intellecto L’un des apports principaux d’Al Farabi est sa description de l’intellect acquis.
De Anima Avicenne présente, entre autres, l’intellect saint.
Grand commentaire au De Anima d’Aristote Averroès soutient notamment la thèse de l’unité de l’intellect possible. Développements des philosophes médiévaux latins Les philosophes médiévaux latins reprennent les textes aristotéliciens et les développements originaux des philosophes arabes afin d’apporter une nouvelle contribution à la noétique.
Albert le Grand:
De intellectu et intelligibili, De Anima Albert fut un grand lecteur de philosophes comme Averroès. Pour être comprise, son œuvre noétique complexe nécessite, entre autres, l’étude des développements néoplatoniciens et de la philosophie arabe.
De unitate intellectu contra averroistas Thomas d’Aquin, qui fut un élève d’Albert le Grand, s’oppose à la thèse selon laquelle l’intellect possible serait unique pour tous les hommes.
Chez Husserl, la noèse est l’acte même de la pensée : le noème est l’objet intentionnel de cette pensée (Idéesdirectrices pour une phénoménologie, III, 3, § 87 ss.).
Concepts principaux de la noétiqueIntellect agent Dans De l’Âme, Aristote présente plus précisément « l’intellect qui produit toutes choses » (ho noûs toi panta poiein). Intellect possible Intelligible Moteur Premier Possibilite de creer les choses de pensee Questions principales traitées par la noétiqueLa nature de l’intellect agent et de l’intellect possibleLes liens entre l’intellect et l’intellect divinL’unité ou la pluralité de l’intellect humainLe problème de l’intellect acquis (intellectus adeptus)Le concept d’autorisation noétique en sciences de l’éducationL’autorisation noétique peut être définie comme un cheminement vers soi même. Ce concept, proche de celui d’individuation développé par Carl Gustav Jung dans le cadre de la psychologie analytique, a été posé par René Barbier et repris par Joëlle Macrez-Maurel dans le cadre des sciences de l’éducation.
Teilhard de Chardin
In the 1930s, a Jesuit priest and paleontologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin formulated a theory that accepted the fact that evolution has occurred by natural selection, as suggested by Darwin, but that also saw evolution taking place within a spiritual dimension. He theorized that evolution involves three stages.
- The first is physical evolution, which we now recognize leads to the formation of elements heavier than helium and, ultimately, the earth and its atmosphere.
- The second stage is biological evolution, which became important once life appeared on the earth. Over the last three billion years, biological life forms have slowly become more neurologically complex and conscious. Once humans appeared,
- the third stage of evolution took over, which proceeded within human culture and thought in what Chardin called the noosphere, a kind of collective consciousness, a meeting of all minds. He postulated that in the future, the noosphere along with all life would merge into pure thought, which he called the Omega Point which he equated with Christ. Omega Point exploring the evolutionary trends towards greater complexity, connectivity, and consciousness, and argued that humanity was moving towards an “Omega Point”
The full descent of spirit into matter, the fulfillment of our evolution. We will be closer to the Cosmic Christ through reason alone.
NOOSPHERE term coined by Teilhard de Chardin, defined as a non-material sheath that surrounds the earth, containing all of humanity’s cultural achievementsJesus The emergence of a cosmically conscious race, was given to us two millennium ago by Jesus of the Bible. When Jesus spoke of himself, he principally uses the term “Son of Man”. Others called him the Son of God, but Jesus most often referred to himself as the Son of Man, the offspring of humanity. He told those around him that they would by higher than the angels and that those things which he did, they would do also, and greater (John 14:12), for that, is the estate of man. The reason for this declaration by Jesus is that he was aware of himself as a finished specimen of the new humanity which is to come. His mission and his teaching have at their heart the development of a new and higher state of consciousness. Jesus was a historic person, a human being who lived two thousand years ago; but christ, the Christos, the Messiah, is an eternal transpersonal condition of being to which we must all someday come. Jesus did not say that this higher state of consciousness realized in him was his alone for all time. Nor did he call us to worship him. Rather, he called us to follow him, but to follow his steps, learn from him and his example, to live a God-centered life of compassionate service to the world.
Compassionate Intention, Prayer, and Distant Healing The Eric Michel Ministries Chapel Energy Healing, a branch of complementary and alternative medicine, holds the belief that a healer can channel healing energy into the person seeking help by different methods: hands-on, hands-off, and distant or absent where the patient and healer are in different locations. There are various schools of energy healing, we use spiritual distant healing where our practitioners in a traditional religious faith as a prerequisite for effecting a cure and takes place within a religious context.
Prayer is an invocation or act that seeks to activate a rapport with a God, an object of worship. There are different forms of prayer such as petitionary prayer, prayers of supplication, thanksgiving, and worship/praise. Prayer may be directed towards God, for the purpose of worshipping, requesting guidance, requesting assistance. We are trained to focus on the recipient through philosophy and intellectual contemplation. Christian Science teaches that prayer is a spiritualization of thought or an understanding of God and of the nature of the underlying spiritual creation.
We believe that this can result in healing, by bringing spiritual reality into clearer focus in the human scene. The world as it appears to the senses is regarded as a distorted version of the world of spiritual ideas. Prayer can heal the distortion.
Christian Scientists believe that prayer does not change the spiritual creation but gives a clearer view of it, and the result appears in the human scene as healing: the human picture adjusts to coincide more nearly with the divine reality.
Eric Michel Pentecostal Ministry Gifts
Christian Scientists do not practise intercessory prayer as it is commonly understood, and they generally avoid combining prayer with medical treatment in the belief that the two practices tend to work against each other. (However, the choice of healing method is regarded as a matter for the individual, and the Christian Science Church exerts no pressure on members to avoid medical treatment if they wish to avail of it as an alternative to Christian (Science healing.)
Prayer works through love: the recognition of God’s creation as spiritual, intact, and inherently lovable. We use the Buddhist prayer to accompany meditation. Buddhism sees prayer as a secondary, supportive practice to meditation and scriptural study.
Gautama Buddha claimed that human beings possess the capacity and potential to become liberated, or enlightened, through contemplation (Sanskrit: bhāvana and dhyāna), leading to insight.
Prayer is seen mainly as a powerful psycho-physical practice that can enhance meditation. As you can see on the Chaplain Badge
We have only one name and one symbol Universalist and under the cross, the word “universal-ist” means for all and the cross for Christian.
The Vision of Teilhard-de-Chardin
Entropy, Thermodynamics and Divergence, How is it possible to understand Singularity or how the whole universe is structured under the second law of thermodynamics? Teilhard de Chardin had a vision and many explanations about it, his work is worth further investigation,
