This big puzzle, the panoramic vision

Time reading: 2 min.

How is panoramic vision defined? Answer: It embraces a very wide field of vision, enabling excellent visibility. A bit like a large jigsaw puzzle, when the pieces are glued together to form a coherent whole. Some may claim, for example, that the revelations in the Message from the Elohim don’t teach them anything new. A friend of mine told me the other day that there was nothing special about this book on the subject of the infinitely small and the infinitely large, that it was all part of his high-school chemistry course. And yet, I know a Raelian chemical engineer who, like my friend, rummaged through his school books in his youth. He juggled with his passion for science, and knew the theory that everything in the universe responds to each other in terms of macrocosm and microcosm.

Years later, when he analyzed the relevance of the message, he set aside his scholarly ego to understand the deeper meaning of his readings. Again, like my friend, these explanations of the infinitely small and the infinitely large were no great revelation to a man of science of his caliber. It merely confirmed what he already knew. In the final analysis, the message of the Elohim is not a treatise on chemistry, particularly in this case. It reconstructs evidence in the history of humankind of the arrival of these beings on Earth. Several pieces of a whole that come together make sense to those who cast off their blinkers, who perceive this panoramic vision of the origin of life on our planet. A theology student, for example, might retort by saying that using the word Elohim is déjà vu, it’s old news! A narrow-minded ufologist might claim that he’s seen snow, that Rael isn’t the first to talk about the existence of extraterrestrials.

This revelation of the infinite universe, without god or any other mystical crutch, simply confirms what the Elohim have scientifically proven. It’s up to each individual to believe it or not, or rather to understand it or not. As far as infinity is concerned, our prophet tells us that trying to understand it is a dead end. We can only feel it. “We will never be able to understand the Infinite, but we can feel it, we can enjoy it, we can be happy. – Rael, Contact 379

The fact that researchers have come to the conclusion that the universe is infinitely large and infinitely small remains theoretical for the time being, as far as humankind is concerned. The evidence that these are just theories is that there is still a widespread belief in the scientific community in the Big Bang and the absurd idea of the beginning of the universe. In the first two messages, Rael doesn’t claim to be inventing anything new, but rather copying what this being from outer space, Yahweh, dictates to him. He gathers evidence that already existed throughout the history of religions.  

Traces of the truth are to be found not only in the Bible and the Gospels, but in practically all religions. The Kabbalah, in particular, is one of the richest books of testimony. You’ll find a great many references to us.Intelligent Design, p. 88

Like this chemical engineer, some others in the Raelian Movement have searched and worked in all fields, be it archaeology, history, psychology, theology, or science. They’re not idiots who’ll believe anything. How can they learn anything from a guy who was just a racing driver who sang in France? It’s enough to make you wonder. Wow! Of course, the old idea that it’s all a scam has been around for almost 50 years, and is still alive and well for those who can’t see much further than the end of their noses. How could it be? A racing driver who overnight becomes a literary virtuoso at handling Bible verses. I think we need to get rid of our blinkers and see the big picture when the pieces of the puzzle are put back together. That’s my point of view. That my friend has already become aware of the infinitely large and the infinitely small in high school, bravo! That’s one piece of the puzzle. Just a stream leading to the ocean of truth. It’s up to him to open his horizons, to perceive the vast landscape, the great panorama.

Universal peace is around the corner.
