Consider a piece of a puzzle in which the whole image is not clearly represented. One, who has free will, can draw several conclusions as to what the whole puzzle looks like as well where it fits in relation to that conclusion. But the fact of the matter is one can be completely wrong as to how the puzzle actually looks as well as where the piece fits.
Using the analogy of a person who has drawn the wrong conclusions in relation to a piece in a puzzle, one question which comes to mind is how God would consider the relevance of the false conclusion. Also to what extent does the false conclusion affect the fact that it is in reality a piece of a puzzle which belongs to another image?
In relation to God that would depend on your opinion. Once you were able to perceive the puzzle for what it was meant to look like (as well how the piece you had, fit into that image)... Protector my impression of the term God is that whatever conclusion we draw as to its structure and meaning, will always not be enough. Awareness as we understand it exists, because reality (in order to truly be real) must be complete and we are the result of that conclusion.
Therefore any determinations we make about infinity are not conclusion about God, but rather about ourselves. ... What are your thoughts?
But at least they would understand that piece that they had. As humans, do we even understand a single piece? We are a wasted half-creation if we can't. I get a lot of the "whole picture," but I'm not impressed. A puzzle is just a jumbled picture of a place that you would like to be. So now it's like saying that life is a jumbled puzzle of "heaven" and you have to figure out the pieces. I can tell you that this puzzle blows.
According to the EOU model, the Universe is a closed (into itself) four (at least)- dimensional structure of spacetimematter, which is currently in the state of spatial-expansion, that being just a phase in the continuing motion between two borderline, extreme-initial states, defined by the qualities of a black and a white hole, where this motion includes both the "inside" and "outside" motion and changes of some elements which influence one another. The term "inside" here denotes anything situated on the concave side of a certain closed structure with an accepted number of dimensions.
The term spatial-expansion assumes a four-dimensional motion transferred into our three-dimensional world, and we have to make a clear distinction between this and the meaning of classical expansion- an explosion, for instance, where particles move in all directions at once, but which is in fact the sum of a finite number of common straight-line motions, where all velocity vectors of certain elements of the expanding object have the same starting point. With spatial-expansion, contrary to an explosion, all points of (a part of) a volume or "space" are equal, since in every little part of its little parts there is a motion from the "inside" to the "outside", where there is always an infinite number of infinitely small points, and inside each of those points, in succession with the 'expanding' process there appears an infinite number of infinitely small points. In this sense, something can be inside or outside a sphere of certain dimensions, while the expressions: under, left, above and the like, cannot define the position of an object in this dimension.
The claim that the Universe is in the phase of spatial-expansion, means that it is in a state of motion which implies that not only the distance between various celestial bodies (Hubble's Law) - planets, stars, galaxies, etc. is increasing, but also the distance between the atoms of elements those bodies are comprised of, and between the "parts" of those atoms, i.e. the quarks which constitute hadrons, leptons, etc. (EOU Model).
The thought that this applies to us, our bodies and everything around us, should not make us worry. According to the suggested model, our Sun would, in some fifteen billion years, which is roughly how old the Universe is, "expand" only by 0.00001 percent of its size in this manner. The distance between atoms is on the scale of 10-10 m. In, let's say, five thousand years, it would be greater by only 10-22 m. The Pyramids in Egypt, which are just about that old, have in all that time grown by a one- millionth part of a millimeter, which makes about 10-9 ratio to their size. Such a small relative growth in size is impossible to measure, especially in such a long time interval. A number of generations could not measure this, since the measurement etalons (e.g. meters), change their "size", while the relative ratio remains the same, which could create a "picture" that nothing is actually changing. Still, although they "remain the same", they, as we say, "grow old", so the "passing of time" has left its mark after all, which is something we can see (e.g. as a change in structure, mechanical qualities...) Greater distancing speeds and a more significant increasing of the distance to us are a privilege of the borderline areas of Space. Of course, according to the Model, from their point of view, we are the ones "running away" towards "the outside"...
If we accept "spatial-expansion" as reality, then the above-mentioned "problems" of the red and blue shift not only do not contradict the relativity theory, but they even support it, by confirming the positive curving of our space and in the fourth dimension, at that, which, in fact, would imply its being closed in that dimension as well.
Owing to the described model, the question: "When did the Universe come into being?" has in some way become pointless, along with the question: "Where did the Universe come into being?".
Nimpo came to stand for all of the auxiliary forms of training which could lead to spiritual enlightenment and had the side benefit of making a person's martial arts much more effective and efficient. One of the most useful and distinctive arts which came to be practiced by both monks and warriors was known as Karumijutsu, the body lightening art.
