It is hard for us to realize something that we cannot perceive. We are able to use imagination to gain an approximation of what is possible, but the
reality is never truly what we perceive. Therefore, since be perceive time, that does not mean that it exists. It does seem impossible for the
universe to simply exist all by itself because we perceive the death and birth of everything. Emanation is the closest approximation to reality we
can get because that is the best and most obvious solution due to our very own laws of physics and our perception. Except there is a law that states
very clearly the reality - a reality which we all seem to forget.
It is said that energy can neither be created nor destroyed, but it does change form.
If energy is not being created, then it simply exists. If it is not being destroyed, then it simply exists. If it changes form, then it simply
exists. Energy is energy regardless of the form.
If we go beyond our perception and take notice of an irrefutable law, the answer is obvious.
The universe has never not existed and won't ever not exist.
Then why does the universe change at all? For there to be changes, there must have been a catalyst, a movement. The energy has always and will
always be there... but, it is almost as if the energy needed an outside energy to slap it into motion!
We use terms like potential energy and kinetic energy. Potential energy is the possibility. Kinetic energy is the chosen path. Potential energy is
what could happen. Kinetic energy is what is happening or has happened. For potential energy to become kinetic energy, there must be a force or
action resulting from an outside movement.
I remember my physics teacher using the old apple demonstration. He held the apple above the desk and said, "If you exclude all acting forces and
outside interferences except for the existence of earth as a gravitational force and the apple as an object in proximity, this apple being in the
state of separation from the earth is a demonstration of the potential energy the apple has stored." Then he would drop the apple. "And kinetic
energy is what you see happening when the apple falls to the desk. The force of gravity drew the apple to the desk, using up its potential energy and
changing it to kinetic energy."
Of course, there are an amazing number of interferences and outside and inside forces acting. All of those forces are actually just other forms of
energy constantly changing. So, in reality, potential energy is simply a designation for what we are observing, but it is not a reality of the state
of the energy itself. In fact, all energy is truly energy in motion. There is not any energy anywhere that is not in motion. So, kinetic energy is
simply a designation for what we observe. Therefore, all energy is simply in the same state, which is motion. It is only logical that energy itself
must be motion itself. If there were no motion, there would be no energy.
The smallest kind of motion I can think of is a vibration. A vibration, in my perception, is simply a deviation from stasis.
I generally pride myself in being able to imagine and contemplate anything through with little to no experience, but when I try to imagine the "first
moment" or "last moment" or "perfect emptiness" or "perfect fullness" or any idea similar in regards to the universe, there is a block on my
brain. I simply cannot calculate any idea like this. I will attempt to not sound like I am advocating the following ideas:
1) My brain can cope with the idea that the real existence is outside of our universe and that our perception only goes as far as the "matrix" that
we perceive. This would neatly tie up all loose ends for me except for the origination of the "matrix". Since the only logical conclusion is
infinite matrices, I cannot agree with this theory because the original problem is not resolved.
2) My brain can cope with the idea that a source of infinite potential energy pours out energy into this universe while also re-absorbing the energy
back into its circuit via direct current. The idea of nothingness can easily transmit to the idea of infinite potential energy. The idea of fullness
can easily transmit to the idea of infinite kinetic energy. Since nothingness can be the fullness of nothing, then potential and kinetic energy are
obviously the same thing. Absolute zero in the form of absolutely no movement or absolutely full movement which translates to perceived stasis in
space/time. This universe would be an electronic device that is connected to this one great "battery". The only problem with this theory is that
it calculates all things that are, to me, incalculable into plausibility. Plausibility does not translate to reality.
3) My brain can cope with the idea that the very source of all energy is God. Since the consciousness of energy has not been proven beyond our own
perceptions and interactions, then we cannot, yet, empirically come to a conclusion on the veracity of the consciousness of God - with God being the
all-encompassing. Maybe someone has, but if you have, how do you convey this proof to someone else?
4) My brain does not cope with the idea of the mainstream big bang theory. I think theories are good and ideas are good, but to be teaching something
which has such a huge hole as a possibility is silly. The origin of the original super-force is not established, which means this is an incomplete
theory. The origin of the original super-force is the whole point of the conversation! I believe that any theory that describes what happens after
an undetermined cause is incredibly foolish. This should be self-evident.
Much more can and will be said for time and a time. Logically, it is obvious that our universe was not created nor destroyed. (I remind the faithful
that God created the heavens and the earth and God very well might be that source of infinite potential/kinetic energy). I think it is possible that
because we are in this physical frame with our physical brain that we as individuals cannot understand the origin until we as individuals die to our
physical bodies. I believe that is the moment when we discover the reality of the physical origin. As far as the spiritual (spiritual as in beyond
the physical, not "breath" or "tiny-particles" or "alcohol"), that is a totally different discussion.
