I posted this reply on another thread but it seems appropriate here as well...hope that's not against the rules
Well, here's my thoughts on it...I think the creator could be all knowing as well as not knowing it all. For those of you who lean towards
reincarnation...Think about the great creator, whoever or whatever that is, being 'alone' in the beginning. It can never have a new thought or
experience...static in it's own greatness. What better way to
'experience' all of your knowledge in a meaningful way than to arrange a system of subdividing yourself into, say, 7 billion souls, for lack of a
better word, THEN create a way to forget all that you know in order to experience the great diversity that life (us included) can create?
By forgetting who or what you are and your origins, install a 'free will' program into the mix, and then every living soul or subdivision of the
Creator can co create based on their own unique set of circumstances. Every face of the Creator a carbon copy of the original, yet with the ability to
create in their own way...negatively or positively...stretched out over countless lifetimes and experiences.
Every person, like a finger print, has a different point of view...will see the world in a different way...see the same sunset yet experience it from
their point of view...experience life and make choices that will be unique to them alone...God experiencing himself! Over infinite lifetimes of being
poor or rich, good or evil...learning the lessons of life all the while.
And like nature (or the footprints of the Creator if you will) you see the patterns of this every where...starting with a seed which makes it's
journey into leaves, up to a stalk, up to a bloom and back to many seeds again, to start the process over and over. Two seeds side by side would
experience growing a different way...all along not knowing the end result is to make more seeds. Nature...the foot prints of the Creator.
Consider eternity as a loop...or if you like quantum physics, a torus...an energy field that cycles endlessly in it's own sphere. As can be seen in
nature, fractals abound everywhere...patterns inside of patterns inside of patterns...Each cell or atom produces it's own electromagnetic field (a
torus) as well as each cell, as well as each human or living organism...as well as the earth, the solar system, and yes, the universe. It's not that
the universe is sooo big...it's just that we are sooo small...
This is a short version of how I see it all coming together. Maybe not a perfect explanation but makes much better sense than any religion out
We are here to create in the sandbox of life that the creator has dropped us down into.
Now...as a co creator...imagine what you can do!
