2. IN THE BEGINNING
Before anything exists, there can only be nothing, But the preternatural nothingness must have a potential, and that potential must be infinite because an infinity of creations has descended from it. If there had been no potential, then we would not exist, and if the potential had been limited, we would have ground to a halt long ago.
The nothingness exists before all space and time, therefore it is unchanging and may be described as static.
Matter and energy and any other possible forms can only exist within space and time and therefore are second order creations. Counting and the quantification of things are dependent on the existence of things which can be counted, therefore all mathematics and the very concept of quantification is a second order creation. And so the nothingness is above the concept of quantification and is neither few nor many, neither zero nor infinite, it is literally beyond counting.
The nothingness has the potential for thought, but there is nothing to think about until something is created, therefore, the first thought and the first creation must be one and the same, for something must be conceived of to exist. Therefore, the process of thought in its ultimate form, is the process of creation.
Of the four basic components of this universe, namely Matter, Energy, Space, and Time, only Space can be conceived of without reference to any of the other factors. Therefore, the first creation must be space rather than matter, energy, or time.
IN THE BEGINNING, THE ZERO-INFINITE LIFE STATIC
CONCEIVED OF SPACE. AND IN THE CONCEPT OF SPACE, IS
THE CONCEPT OF SEPARATION. AND THE ONLY THING
THERE WAS WHICH COULD BE SEPARATED WAS THE LIFE
But the basic life static which is the unchanging nothingness is senior to space time and therefore cannot be affected by this separation. It is not made less by it, and therefore it may again separate. And from the view of the basic nothingness, the separations cannot be before or after each other because it is indeed timeless, but from the lesser view of that which is separated, the separated almost statics can conceive that one separated before another and therefore we have time.
And the lesser near-statics are also nothingness with the potential for infinite creation, but they have the experience of time and therefore the experience of what they have created.
Once those who can conceive are separated from the basic nothingness, they then proceed to apply further separations to bring about the creation of existence. A positive and a negative can be pulled out of nothing and the net equation remains the same. 1 - 1 = 0 = 2 - 2 = 0 = 256 - 256 etc. The only difference between these is consideration and consideration is the product of thought. Infinite matter and energy may therefore be generated by thought alone.
SPACE IS THE SEPARATION OF PARTICLES
TIME IS THE SEPARATION OF EVENTS
IDENTITY IS THE SEPARATION OF THOUGHT
The interposition of distance is necessary for viewing or perceiving anything.
The interposition of time is necessary for emotion. There is no loss without time, nor is there feeling.
The interposition of identity is necessary for consideration. Without identity, all thought is one which is a passive condition of cosmic allness. Therefore, to think about or consider thought, it is necessary to introduce at least a slight separation from all thought and therefor it is necessary to be an individual to some slight degree. Therefore, identity is necessary for self awareness. Furthermore, the Zero-Infinite Life Static is not a self aware unit, instead it is the sum total of all awareness that is or that might be (or might have been). Therefore, it does not judge or intervene, it just IS.
MATTER IS THE CONSIDERATION THAT SOMETHING IS THERE.
ENERGY IS THE POTENTIAL FOR SOMETHING TO HAPPEN.
Since the basic nothingness is beyond all limitations of time and space, it may be considered as infinite and eternal from our time/space limited perspective. By its very nature, it will always exceed the highest orders of infinite creation that have been achieved and therefore will always demand the creation of even further infinities of somethingness to balance the nothingness. Therefore, the scope of creation is limitless and eternal. Since the nothingness is always with us, we do not lack for it. Our only lack is for the somethingnesses (those things which are not nothing) which will always fall short of completely balancing the nothingness.
The self aware near-statics which we will call Thetans (thought units) fulfill themselves by an ongoing process of creation. Only when this creative process is blocked or stifled do they become miserable.
Furthermore, the separation itself is only a matter of consideration. The thought beings are still part of the original static and therefore have no need to rejoin it since they never really left it in the first place. The ultimate state of these beings is to be an operating manifestation of the ultimate static and project an infinity of creation to balance the nothingness. All lesser states are therefore at least slightly unpleasant but are maintained in the hope of future creation.
