Let's Begin With Nothing, No Time, No Space
Imagining absolutely nothing is apparently not an easy thing for most people to do, but for this exercise, it’s something I’d like you to try.
Before anything ever existed, there was nothing. Nothing at all. No light, no time, nothing to compare size to, no up or down.
If you could magically enter the nothing, a universe could pop into existence and then disappear in what seemed like an instant or it could last an
eternity. From your observation within the nothing, you would not be able to tell.
For the rest of this story I’ll call this impossible magical position the “outside observer
” which we’ll come back to later. Now that
we have set the stage how do we bring our universe into existence?
The Great Question
How did the existence of our universe originate?
The current leading scientific belief is that our universe began with a “Big Bang”. (What Is
the Big Bang Theory?
) Although there are other theories, in this story I’m going to work with the Big Bang theory and try to explain how it
may be possible that the universe could have been created from nothing.
Many years ago, I watched a show on TV where “renowned physicists” put forward their thoughts and theories about how the theorised “Big Bang”
could have occurred. Unfortunately, I do not recall the name of the show or any names of those who were in it.
To my disappointment, not a single one of the supposedly renowned physicists was able to explain our universe’s creation from a point of absolute
nothing. Each of the theories put forward relied on a pre-existing state or multiverses. In my mind not a single one of them was able to explain the
origin of existence which was the actual question they were attempting to answer.
Religions generally claim that a God who has always existed and always will simply said a magic word and everything popped into existence. That leaves
many to believe that a god entity exists and the universe is a separate thing, a possession of the god and subject to the god’s terms. That idea in
it’s most basic understanding also leans towards something (the god) existing prior to the universe.
I would like to explore the possibility that our universe came into being on it’s own where nothing existed at all prior to its existence. By doing
so, I believe we can marry both science and religious ideas in a way that they can be in harmony with each other in regards to creation.
Atheists, please bare with me. What if the concept of god can be explained in scientific terms, wouldn’t that be acceptable?
Religious people, please do not conclude that I’m being blasphemes with my following descriptions of god, if what I’m thinking is close to being
correct I’ll only be showing how god managed to create itself.
Alpha To Omega
Regardless if you have religious beliefs of not, for this story I’d like you to at least imagine that a god does exists and has full knowledge of
everything that has been and everything that will become.
Just as the idea of nothing is hard to imagine for most people so is the concept of a god being omnipresent. A god being both in a state from Alpha
(the beginning) to Omega (the end of everything) all at the same time. Meaning that right from the first moment of existence, this god is aware of
everything that has and will happen until the very end of time.
(I Am Alpha and Omega
I imagine that a third element is required to make sense of the Alpha state and the Omega state and convert them both into omnipresent knowledge and
I’ll simply call that “God Consciousness”, god’s consciousness in the presence at any moment.
God consciousness is the act of deciphering knowledge as it grows forward in time from the Alpha state combined with all the Omega state knowledge
travelling backwards in time. At every moment in time this consciousness is in touch with both past, present and future.
Put Yourself In God’s Shoes
What if you could experience every moment of your own life from your birth (Your own Alpha) to your death (your Omega) all at once with the same type
of consciousness. You’d know your entire story from your birth right up to your death.
If you decide that you don’t like the way your story ends or an event somewhere in the middle you might think you could chose to make a change to
it. Unfortunately any change you think you could make will effect your future from that point and your entire story would change.
What you think you have changed would have never been the case in the first place. Your Omega state would be constantly informing your presence
consciousness of how your life turns out.
Senario A: Living Longer
Your life is to be ended at age 20 from some sort of accident. Your Omega sends that message back to your Alpha and your consciousness at some point
decides to avoid the accident. By avoiding the accident you manage to live to the age of 100 years. Your Omega sends that message back that you never
experienced or died in the accident so you would never actually have to make a conscious decision to avoid an accident.
Senario B: Dying Early
Your Omega informs you that you live to the age of 100 years. For whatever reason you decide to end it early and jump off a cliff at age 20. Obviously
your Omega will never make it to 100 and from your death at age 20, your Omega informs your past that you die at age 20 from a fall from a cliff.
These two scenarios will be played out again a little later in a slightly different way by the god in this story.
Would this mean you have no free will? Not exactly. If your presence conscious is deciphering both your Alpha and Omega at every moment, it would be
in charge of creating your future and the Omega is essentially “reporting” back the final outcome. It would not be able to change something in the
past, but using knowledge from the Omega state, decisions could be made in the moment for your future. Your live decisions.
This is what is meant when it is said that God gives us free will but already knows our choices. It doesn’t mean that our destiny is set in stone,
but any choice we will make is known by Omega and therefore God’s presence consciousness.
