Whitehead and the Rapture
the passing of the love on earth into heaven
and the recycling of that love back to earth
What is done in the world is transformed into a reality in heaven, and the reality in heaven passes back into the world. By reason of this reciprocal relation, the love in the world passes into the love in heaven and floods back again into the world. In this sense, God is the great companion—the fellow-sufferer who understands.'
- Alfred North Whitehead, Process and Reality
