Trinities – latest discussion with Rupert Sheldrake

Aristotle called three a perfect number. We offer three cheers of praise. Christians envisage God as triune.

In this new episode of The Sheldrake-Vernon Dialogues, Rupert Sheldrake and I ask why three is associated with completion, creativity, dynamism and divinity. The discussion ranges over the patterns of three that are revealed in nature; the relationship between being, consciousness and bliss; the links between a third position and transformation in psychotherapy.

The subject was prompted a Cambridge University conference, New Trinitarian Ontologies, which featured leading theologians such as Rowan Williams and David Bentley Hart. Their talks can be found online.

The many previous discussions between myself and Rupert Sheldrake can be found on youtube, streamed, Spotify, iHeartRadio, as a playlist on SoundCloud, and on iTunes.
