clever than they who created everything they couldn't understand. And it just continued from there. People don't like not knowing. They prefer
any explanation over none. Hence God.
There is a reason belief in God is diminishing as accumulated human knowledge increases. He is indeed the God of the gaps.
Hi Dave 420,
Welcome to the thread...
I like your analogy “God of the gaps”
“God is the unknown” this is true but All things come in pairs especially
The opposite to “God is the unknown” is "God the Known", but of course
like all tree’s each of the pair of opposites are split into their opposites
Thus forming The Tree.
I am talking about the "Tree" as in like a "Directory Tree".
So now look at the Tree... You start somewhere in the Tree, in this case at the Location of the Word God...
God is Not necessarily the head of the Tree.
But let us start at The "Word" God anyway.
Imagine an inverted “Y”..
The Tree is formed from “Y”’s so on one leg of the tree, coming down from the location "God" we have "God The Known" and on the other leg
we have "God The Unknown".
Now "God The Unknown" has another inverted “Y” below it...
"God The Unknown" can be split into two legs also.
Now this is the Start of a Logic Tree. On one leg we have Yes
and the Other No.
Now this is where the debate begins, depending on the path in the tree
you go down.
The same is in the other side of The Tree, extending down from The Word
“God” which is "God The Known"...
"God The Known" also splits into a pair, by The Inverted “Y” or Tree.
One Leg goes to "Yes" the other to "No" and this also starts another debate.
Why is it like this then?
It is because, Humankind or the "Human Primate" has Double Logic
built into its DNA structure or Program.
DNA, is a Chemical Program, that controls the make up of the Human Primate.
So if all this is The Tree of The Primate, there must be another Tree, as these two trees are opposites and come from a single location, if we go up
the tree or inverted “Y”s ie in the reducing direction.
So if The Human Primate is One Leg of tree, What is The Other Leg of The Tree?
And What Do these Two Legs of The Tree, come from?
If we search up the Tree or in other words in the reducing direction
of The Tree rather than in the expanding direction, we may in fact find The Truth.
The Two legs of the Tree, that reduce back into a single location, that is still
just a location in the tree and not the head of the Tree, we find at this
location the components, WORD and LIFE, (as in the Western Christian beliefs). So in order to understand This Location, we have to go back through the
next "Y" and this is where the Human Primate comes to a Strong Wall
The Wall is formed by The Human Primates fear, in case the Truth is different than his imagination according to their likes and dislikes!.
But if we contemplate this next location in the Tree, with courage and trust,
in our own conscious state then we can get closer to the truth of our roots.
So on One Leg of the Tree, we have “Life
” and on the Other we have “Word
Now to understand instead of just knowing the meaning of the word,
" we first need to understand the word,Word
We should look at for what it is, and Not create Vain Philosophy about it.
A Word is made up of Letters...
Notice, it is a Word and Not Words.
The Letters of this word mentioned in the Book of John (First Chapter the Word was God
), God and Not anything else.
No other letters, or words are added to the Word “God” but the Word
is just one of the Legs of the Tree at that Location.
The other Leg of The Tree is “Life
God is a part of The Tree, but What is The Tree?
So my question is....
What component is at the head of this stage or location of the Tree,
where the Word
Any thoughts on this?
