I have his book Evolution's End here and enjoyed reading it around two years ago. A quote from the strongest section of the book, near the end:
As Blake said, anything possible to be believed is an image of truth. Truth is function, not a thing, idea, event or semantic slogan. Truth is how the creation works. Understand function and you are home-free. The opposite of truth is delusion, the non-functional. My fearful self-sense, a "raging bundle of desire in a dying animal" as Yeats calls it, is the only delusion there is. All else is God. So the creation gives rise to God as defined, the infinite defined in order to know itself as a self, as you and me. But God as our realized definition is still less-than, still defined. Even so great a relation as me and my greater Self, is a relation and relationship requires separation.
So even this rug, the union of individual and God, will be pulled out from under sooner or later. A further stage will open. We will have to leave the safe-harbor of even the highest knowing, since, as Eckhart put it, all known things must be left behind. Only then will we express evolution's end that was in its beginning, which is the opening of a new evolution.
