We learn from The Sermon on the Mount according to Vedanta by Swami Prabhavanda that the theory of the logos found in John 1.1 was itself a repetition, a repeat of the logic of incarnation - the becoming-embodied of the divine, the becoming divine of embodiment - as understood in the yogic tradition. Prabhavanda writes that this informed Jesus as a linkage to the logos philosophy of Greeks. "The concept of the avatar evolved from the theory of the Logos in both Western and Eastern philosophy"(41). The avatar - such as a Buddha, or a Christ - is in this view a periodic actualization of the transcendental godhead, forging an interconnection between a transcendent consciousness - an awareness which includes both this world and its serene apprehension - and flesh. This transcendental consciousness that becomes immanent through the Avatar is hence no longer simply transcendental, and it is not G*d in the usual monotheist sense. In this repetitious history (or \"Perennial Philosophy\", as Aldous Huxley called it), the sacred, the individuated, and the everyday are densely interconnected, "Atman = Brahman." It is in this sense--as of a spell or script that would create an interconnected and dynamic gathering--that wikis are logos-centric.




In our teaching we watch, amazed, as the blankness of a wiki page summons an interconnectivity, contagious, back into the classroom and beyond. Wyrd!
