Theo-Logistics

June 24, 2011

Theology can offer analysis, assessment, decision and management methods in relation to a certain system. For example, the method of immersion of a forwarder into a logistic environment may offer the chance to analyze and make the decision within the system by analogy with Logos’ incarnation. The preliminary theoretical study on the logistic system is in analogy with the preincarnated Logos and, the subsequently refined logistic management methods are obtained in analogy with the glorified Logos. This method is possible because the analogy consists in the reflection of the divine pattern onto the human activity. These reflections propagate indefinitely, from one system to another, being sometimes just reflections of some facets of the original pattern. The projections of the divine pattern on the Earth are the earthly patterns (categories) propagating by analysis.

All the analogies of the logistics, transports, of the systems in general, with theology may create new sciences, such as theological logistics (Theo-Logistics). They will be far closer to perfection than those created by humans up until now. For example, a perfect logistic system could be achieved if the relations between its actors were based on the fundamental commandment “Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself” (Matthew 22.39), considered instead of all the current regulations and laws. But in order to achieve the theo-logistic system, a visionary person is also required because “when there is no vision, the people are unrestrained…” (Proverbs 29.18).

Even if it is difficult to achieve it in practice, the Theo-Logistics (or another theo-system) should be built as a reference model for the improvement of the current logistic systems.
