In The Life Divine, Sri Aurobindo has firmly established the possibility of the divine body

[How Long Do We Have Before The Rise of the Cybermen? from Vox Nova by Henry Karlson]

[Is there any reason why he should not also liberate the bodily existence from the present law of death, division and mutual devouring and use individualisation of body as merely a useful subordinate term of the one divine Conscious-Existence made serviceable for the joy of the Infinite in the finite? or why this spirit should not be free in a sovereign occupation of form, consciously immortal even in the changing of his robe of Matter, possessed of his self-delight in a world subjected to the law of unity and love and beauty? And if man be the inhabitant of terrestrial existence through whom that transformation of the mental into the supramental can at last be operated, is it not possible that he may develop, as well as a divine mind and a divine life, also a divine body?...There are, quite certainly, other states even of Matter itself; there is undoubtedly an ascending series of the divine gradations of substance; there is the possibility of the material being transfiguring itself through the acceptation of a higher law than its own which is yet its own because it is always there latent and potential in its own secrecies. -- Location: Home > E-Library > Works Of Sri Aurobindo > English > The Life Divine Volume-18 > The Knot Of Matter]

In The Life Divine, Sri Aurobindo has firmly established the possibility of the divine body materializing. Scientific or technological peregrinations, however, merely magnify the tension that the present chasm signifies. [TNM]

  1. The cyber-"men", or the one-dimensional hollow men are already here and have been for quite some time now.

    Turn on your TV and watch fox "news".

    They inhabit such outfits as the Heritage Foundation, the AEI etc etc and so on.

    Plus they have their man doing "god's work" as part of "god's plan" in the White House.
