The Nordan Symposia is inspired by the human capacity seen well in one known as Nordan, the Kenite that lived in the 5th millennia B.C.E., who, with his "band of earnest students" residing at Salem under the tutelage of Machiventa Melchizedek, posed such brilliant questions as to earn from Machiventa an expanded revelation of truth that far transcended the time in which they lived. (93:3.4) Likewise, this Symposia is dedicated to advancing the study of humanity as one evolving proportionate to the discovery of our indwelling divinity. Such an inquiry celebrates the limitless range of fact, meaning, and value around and within us whose ongoing exploration is the joy of every child of God.
This work eschews presumptions upon authority even as its participants seek to identify and incorporate what are found to be the most helpful resources freely available throughout this world that is slowly becoming a real cosmopolis. Through such means as this Open Source platform, it is hoped that the common threads of inquiry woven through every field of human endeavor might become more vivid and seen as they are in truth, meaningfully related to the enduring question of "who are we" to have taken upon ourselves the name - homo sapiens- the wise and knowing one?
While the Primary Corpus contains work attributed to divine sources with the Secondary Corpus featuring work of human origin, finite distinctions between the human and divine can be somewhat arbitrary given the limited experience with the divine living within humanity and the human dwelling within the Source of all that is divine. Indeed, it is the expanding consciousness of the evolving and indivisible union of humanity and divinity that is the primary objective of this endeavor knowing that as we engage in sincere and sustained inquiry, an expanded revelation of truth unfolds. From such dialogue, varied bodies of work emerge that may become part of one or both the Primary and Secondary Corpora.
