Episode 17: The Ideal Food

Food is an ethical, health and environmental issue that many people today are taking an increasing and urgent interest in. This is almost certainly a reaction to the killing of billions of mammals and fish every year, the widespread illhealth of mankind and the growing worries about the effect of, for example, meat-eating on the sustainability of the Earth.

According to Martinus, human nutrition is evolving in a more humane direction as our consciousness evolves and our conscience grows to encompass other beings than only those of our own species.

In this podcast Pernilla Rosell interviews Mary McGovern about how Martinus, in his book The Ideal Food, analyses the evolution of human nutrition from meat-eating to vegetarianism and veganism. They look at the consequences of the unreliability of our sense of taste and the effect of our nutritional choices on our health and fate.

Episode 8: In Transition

Why do so many marriages end in divorce? Why are so many people lonely and don’t find happiness in a traditional partnership? Why are there different types of sexuality? Why do many parents experience a conflict between wishing to spend time with their children and wishing to devote more time to intellectual and creative work? Are we experiencing a sexual evolution of humanity that is parallel to its intellectual and social development?

In this podcast episode, Mary McGovern from Copenhagen/Scotland and Pernilla Rosell from Stockholm discuss Martinus’s analyses of the pole transformation and the effects of the changing balance of the poles that we can observe in society today.

According to Martinus, all human beings have two sexual poles in their superconsciousness, a masculine pole and a feminine pole. In the animal kingdom, one of these poles is latent, while the other is dominating, thus creating the two sexes that we know as male and female animals. A completely one-poled sexual state is characterised by the instinct for self-preservation and selfishness that we see in instinctual animal behaviour. For humans, the latent pole in both sexes is beginning to develop, which means that men and women are slowly developing into more intellectual, balanced and loving beings. Ultimately, a third sex will emerge, a truly human gender with the highest moral standard of neighbourly love. The sexual pole transformation is the driving force behind all creation.

Mary and Pernilla reflect on how different human beings experience this transitional period today and on how we can find support and a better understanding of human sexual evolution by studying Martinus’s analyses. Pernilla also talks about how she first met Martinus’s analyses through her grandmother and her father, and how she herself found support in Martinus’s analyses of the sexual pole transformation during her own experience of going through a divorce.

Episode 7: Martinus Cosmology – the Theory of Everything

Since the dawn of our reasoning faculties we have tried to understand the universe around us. This enquiry has led to the evolution of science, religion and, more recently, spiritual science. Martinus Cosmology is such a spiritual science. It examines the meaning and purpose behind all physical and mental events in the universe. It looks at the law of cause and effect, the difference between the creator and the created, the law of contrasts and the absolute reality of eternity and infinity. It also shows that prayer has a clear scientific basis, the understanding of which can contribute to one’s understanding of both the pleasant and unpleasant occurrences in one’s life. It looks into life on all levels – the microcosmic, the mesocosmic and the macrocosmic – and can be said to be a theory or science of everything, a science of the consciousness of God.

In the seventh episode of the Martinus Cosmology Podcast, Mary McGovern interviews Ole Therkelsen from Copenhagen, Denmark on Martinus Cosmology, God, the universe and science.

Ole Therkelsen (born in 1948) is a chemical engineer and a biologist with a life-long interest in Martinus Cosmology. He was introduced to Martinus Cosmology by his parents when he was a small boy, and since 1980 he has given over 1500 lectures on Martinus’s world picture in fifteen countries in six different languages. Many of his lectures may be heard on http://www.oletherkelsen.dk and on http://www.youtube.com. He is the author of Martinus, Darwin and Intelligent Design – A New Theory of Evolution and Martinus and the New World Morality.

Episode 5: The Cosmic Message of the Christmas Gospel

The Christmas gospel can be understood on two levels: as an account of historic events and as a symbolic description of the fate of mankind. In the fifth episode of the Martinus Cosmology Podcast, Mary McGovern interviews Tryggvi Gudmundsson from Iceland about Martinus’s interpretation of the various symbols contained in the Christmas gospel: the evolution of the individual out of the animal kingdom towards cosmic consciousness (the birth of the Christ child within each of us), the principle of giving, the eternal contrasts between light and darkness and the realisation of our longing for a future society in which light and peace dominate on all levels.

Tryggvi Gudmundsson is a life-long student of Martinus Cosmology and has a master’s degree in the history of religion from the University of Copenhagen.
