We will have to make do with less, and the transition from more to less will in all likelihood not be pleasant, because capitalism does not really work in reverse.
The flow of molecules from the hot room into the cold one reduces the temperature gradient and eventually it produces a state of equilibrium, or mild temperature. Most of the time this reduction of gradient differentials appears destructive as it produces a homogeneous equilibrium. However, in special cases, in systems that are not in a state of equilibrium, the flow of energy and the reduction of gradients produces and sustains patterns, forms, and structures. In order to explain how this works, I have to go into more detail about entropy and its connection to the flow of energy.
Theology should be viewed as en procès, always in process and always on trial, internally and externally, subject to its internal demands as well as the claims of the world, perhaps especially the cultured despisers of religion. Theology must be willing to lose itself to find itself. To do this, theology must be willing to risk not only the content or object of theological thinking, including God, but even the form of theology itself as a language. Theology is insurrectionist with and against theology as well as insurrectionist with and against the world in which theology takes place.
