In The Divine Matrix philosopher and theologian Joseph Bracken first locates the Infinite as transcendent source and goal of human activity as the notion common to virtually all the major world religions. This idea is consistent with the notion of eternal and continuous motion in Aristotle, with the "act of being" (actus essendi) in the theology of Thomas Aquinas and Meister Eckert, and with the ground of being of Shelling.
This creativity or creative power is what the author designates as the divine matrix in which all entities (including God . Overall, I thought Bracken made a compelling argument. However, I did take issue with him on a couple of points.
This creativity or creative power is what the author designates as the divine matrix in which all entities (including God himself) have their being. He appears to think that the classical theism of Thomistic metaphysics renders God static because it identifies God as being itself. Most process theologians appear to make this same mistake. But this is a misunderstanding of classical theism. Being" (God) is dynamic, not static.

The Divine Matrix - Process Theology Grown U. Joseph Bracken gives process thought the metaphysical depth it has long needed, finding in "creativity" an Ultimate Reality which can be called the divine matrix of all that happens
The Divine Matrix - Process Theology Grown Up. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 14 years ago. Process Theology is the name for a religious interpretation of reality built on the philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead. Joseph Bracken gives process thought the metaphysical depth it has long needed, finding in "creativity" an Ultimate Reality which can be called the divine matrix of all that happens. Bracken also compares this notion of the Ultimate to analogous ideas in Hindu and Buddhist thought, thereby uncovering an openness to transcendence in traditions of many cultures.
