“Matter” designates the inclination of nature to slide back toward the condition of dispersal that constituted the early subatomic stage of the universe’s long journey. “Spirit,” then, is the propensity of our awakening universe to converge toward unity in the form of future emergent complexity. Matter is spirit in the state of dispersal or decoherence. Spirit is matter in the state of emerging coherence. And “God” is the principle that creates the universe by bringing unity out of the state of multiplicity known as matter. —John F. Haught, The Cosmic Vision of Teilhard de Chardin
