English Transcript: 

God certainly treats us in a personal way since we are persons.  And since God sustains all creation, he obviously must relate to every creature according to its nature and their level of consciousness. So, we are still at the very dawn of studying human consciousness but some things are already clarifying.  And one is that the human organism is an extraordinary complex creature that sums up all of the worlds that are known to philosophy or metaphysics of matter, human life, human things and the trans-human things, chief of which we call God in the Christian/Jewish tradition.


 

Spanish Transcript: 

Dios y la Conciencia Humana

Sin duda Dios nos trata de manera personal, puesto  que somos personas, y puesto que de Dios depende toda la creación, obviamente Él debe relacionarse con cada criatura según sea su naturaleza y su nivel de conciencia. Entonces, aún estamos en los albores del estudio de la conciencia humana, algunas cosas ya nos quedan claras. Y una de ellas es el hecho de que el organismo humano es una criatura extraordinariamente compleja, que resume en sí misma todos los mundos conocidos por la filosofía o a la metafísica de la materia, de la vida humana, de los objetos humanos y de los objetos que trascienden lo humano, principalmente el que llamamos Dios en la tradición Judeo Cristiana.
