Peter B. Todd, MAPS, a psychotherapist with a Jungian orientation, is author of The Individuation of God: Integrating Science and Religion. He experienced clinical death, during cardiac surgery, in 2005, and was subsequently revived. He was also a gold medalist at the 1982 Gay Games in San Francisco.

Here he suggests that the concept of an Omega Point can be understood both in theological and in evolutionary terms. He focuses on the writings of the Jesuit scientist and theologian Teilhard de Chardin who proposed that the cosmic, or archetypal, Christ serves as an attractor drawing humanity into an awareness of his consciousness. As the world exists with god, so god is evolving as we evolve.

New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is a past vice-president of the Association for Humanistic Psychology; and is the recipient of the Pathfinder Award from that Association for his contributions to the field of human consciousness exploration.
