Logos: the Divine Word of God

Logos; it is essentially the Greek word for the logical or reasoning mind of God. Interchangeable translations of logos are spirit, will, word, wisdom, and Sophia. (1) It can also be explained as a word, reason, speech or/and the divine word; Christ. Logos is the divine word of God; the second person in the Trinity (incarnate in Jesus).

In Old Testament terms Logos would be translated Word, in Greek terms it would be Reason. It stands for more than spoken words. Behind all spoken words are thoughts, which are part of the mind, and the mind has an affinity with reason. Reason is the structure of orderly action. That ultimate reality was reasonable was reason itself. Because human beings have the capacity for reason it was believed by Jesus and Gnostic Christians that our destiny is to make contact with divine reason and like God discern ultimate truths.

Logos also means man’s ability to recognize reality, or theoretical reason , man’s ability to reason. In a speech by Philip K. Dick called How to Build a Universe That Doesn't Fall Apart Two Days Later, which he delivered in 1978, he wittily explains:
“Logos was both that which thought, and the thing which it thought: thinker and thought together. The universe, then, is thinker and thought, and since we are part of it, we as humans are, in the final analysis, thoughts of and thinkers of those thoughts.”

“God help us if the man who translated my novel Ubik into German were to do a translation from the koine Greek into German of the New Testament. He did all right until he got to the sentence I am the word. That puzzled him. What can the author mean by that? he must have asked himself, obviously never having come across the Logos doctrine. So he did as good a job of translation as possible. In the German edition, the Absolute Entity which made the suns, made the worlds, created the lives and the places they inhabit, says of itself: I am the brand name. Had he translated the Gospel according to Saint John, I suppose it would have come out as: When all things began, the brand name already was. The brand name dwelt with God, and what God was, the brand name was.
But he can’t be more right and it’s horrible to think that what once was something to pursue for illumination has now become a term for a corporate brand, a logo, which is a corrupt language that has come to rule the whole world.

Even Adolf Hitler, whose occult connections will be dealt with in another article, was in some way influenced by the Logos through the Vril Society, of which he was supposedly a member. The English writer Sir Edward Lord Bulwer-Lytton, who gave the society its name, explains that vril was the power that woke up man’s ability to be a Superhuman. (2) A concept that without a doubt greatly inspired Hitler for the wrong reasons, but what can be said of all this is that vril is possibly just another name for Logos. (3)

(1) Sophia is the functional equivalent of logos or word. In Hellenized Judaism Sophia and wisdom was understood to be virtually identical with God’s will and word.
(2) Some 19th century Atlantis enthusiasts and occultists took his science fiction novel Vril very seriously.
(3) Vril was the supposedly the language spoken by the Atlantians, composed of sounds and clicks.
