Liquid Chips, 5G Towers and the Mark of Antichrist. The Perspective of a Priest and Physicist

Before becoming a priest, I graduated from the Department of Experimental and Theoretical Physics of the Moscow Institute of Engineering and Physics, so I will try to explain the ideas behind the liquid chips and 5G towers, first from the technical and then from the spiritual standpoint.

The Holy Feast of Pentecost

The Feast of the Descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles, which this year we prayerfully celebrate on June 7, is the celebration of the triumph of Divine Love, the feast celebrating the unification of all people.

Thus, in the kontakion of the Feast we hear, “Once, when He descended and confounded the tongues, the Most High divided the nations [at the construction of the tower of Babel – Genesis 11:5-9]; and when He divided the tongues of fire, He called all men into unity; and with one accord we glorify the All-Holy Spirit.” When, in the descent of the Holy Spirit [God] distributed the tongues of fire, He called everyone to unity. In order to destroy the people’s evil intent in constructing the Tower of Babel, God descended and caused everyone to speak in different languages and no longer understand one another; thus construction of the tower came to an end.

Dialogue between Orthodox Christians and Muslims (3)

Serbian Orthodox Patriarch Pavle on Islam and Muslims (1990-1997), Author: Deacon Aleksandar Prascevic, ThD., PhD.

The book Patriarch Pavle on Islam and Muslims written by Deacon Dr Aleksandar Prascevic, consists of 215 pages divided in seven chapters. The writing contains an introduction and an addendum. The book was written based on his researches of the official historical records relating to the Serbian Patriarch Pavle, stored in the archives of the Holy Synod of Bishops of the Serbian Orthodox Church, and covers the period from 1990 to 1997. Subject-wise, Aleksandar Prascevic’s script is an exclusive and pioneer one, as no one prior to him explicitly researched the relations of the Serbian Patriarch Pavle with Muslims, both within a general context and in the context of conflicts and disputes that happened in the territory of the former Yugoslavia. This book primarily relates to Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Dialogue between Orthodox Christians and Muslims (2)

Contribution of Serbian Orthodox Patriarch German to the Dialogue with Muslims (1958 - 1990), Author: Deacon Aleksandar Prascevic, ThD., PhD.

In reviewing this opus, which is rich in both content and meaning, I do not intend to emphasize the course of history, but rather to testify with my personality and position, which I perform also during a burdensome period, the importance of the legacy left to us by leaders of religious communities in the former common state of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, especially the Serbian Orthodox Church and the Islamic Community - who were people with an acute awareness of the importance of dialogue and tolerance, cooperation and respect at the level of religious communities and their dignitaries.

Dialogue between Orthodox Christians and Muslims

Contribution of Serbian Orthodox Patriarch Pavle to the Dialogue with Muslims (1998-2009), Author: Deacon Aleksandar Prascevic, ThD., PhD.

In the last paragraph of the conclusion in the book on Islam, which is most probably the best book ever written about it by an Orthodox theologian, knowledgeable and wise Archbishop Anastasije (Janulatos), its author said: “Among all living religions, Islam is nearest to Orthodox Christianity, both geographically and spiritually. Regardless of deep theological differences and dramatic conflicts in the past, we share a common cultural and religious ground; an essential mutual understanding of the spiritual heritage of these two worlds presents our duty from which much is expected” (Islam, Belgrade, 2005, p. 259). Patriarch Pavle was deeply aware of the truthfulness of this view and the necessity to respond as Christians to the duty of said mutuality, but he led the Serbian Orthodox Church and cared for its believers at the time of a dramatic conflict with Muslims in the present, and not in the past, which burdened his mission with severe hostilities and hatred surrounding and pressing him from all sides, causing his mind and heart to face excruciating spiritual challenges.
