When thinking about God, please don't think of an old man in a robe watching what you do, think of Him how he was described in the Bible. The first
description of God is that He is the Word. John 1:1, "In the beginning there was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." The Word
of God is the energy that gives form to all things, living and not, seen and unseen.
This is beginning to be understood in a scientific context (string theory). String theory says the universe is made of strings that are one dimension
in length but have no dimensions of height or width (understood through mathematics only). These strings have an inherent energy in them causing
different frequencies of vibrations, which make up different particles (remember this).
At present moment, science (physics, etc.) has helped us understand many processes, but the further we probe the more questions we uncover. The
fundamental question that has not been answered is where did the energy of the universe come from? What science is ultimately searching for is God,
the Force that initiated the creation of the universe. If you believe that anything in this universe including yourself is greater than that Force,
you are severely delusional.
It took Earth about 1 billion years to produce its first life forms. It took about another couple billion years for those life forms to develop what
we call self-awareness (I won’t even get into the implications of Who/what is aware of the self, but look into it, it will turn your brain to #).
Develop a concept of awareness before you try to understand this further.
When comparing that timeline to the age of the universe, it is easy to see that our universe had plenty of time to develop self-awareness from the
innate awareness of existence. If you can understand this, the next cluster of sentences isn’t for you. It is for those who believe the physical is
the end all be all.
If you ask how could awareness be with out the biological process we have here on Earth, but first think of why we need biological processes. We use
them to keep up organization of matter by taking in energy and releasing waste (also energy). This is not a closed system and net energy loss happens,
which is the reason for eventual death.
The universe as it is understood now is a closed system in which, energy can neither be created, nor destroyed. This closed system would never have a
loss of net energy, theoretically allowing it to continue organization of matter. There are processes in the universe, which, are specifically for the
task of organization.
Gravity is one of the main (larger, easier to observe) processes. Gravity brings together atoms and clumps energy, creating order out of disorder. If
you want God to have a physical mechanism of His awareness, there it is. Stars, black holes, pulsars, etc. are a way to organize matter for the
purpose of coordinating the flow of energy. Just like biological processes.
All of the biological processes that animate us use bundles of energy called atoms, which make molecules, etc. To us, a collection of molecules seems
to be one discrete object with no space in between, which is in fact not true. There is space between all molecules and none of them are ever truly
touching (where the space comes from). The atoms that make up those molecules are also filled with unreasonable amounts of empty space. When they make
up molecules the bonds that form the molecules are mostly empty, yet they still all seemingly have access to the same information that is innate in
the universe, which tells them how their specific bundle of energy behave in relation to all of the other specific bundles of energy (E=mc^2).
This shows that systems have access to this information and act accordingly even though they are not what we would consider self-aware (I like to call
them information aware). Information is inherent in the universe and is what makes the laws of physics a constant in any part of the universe (yes
they change in extreme environments but that too follows a set of rules, anomalies are never truly present, there is always an underlying cause).
Information can disseminate through empty space with out stopping (no mass or energy = mass and energy can't stop its propagation), thus it is
If you have looked into the idea of awareness and grasped it, you may draw the conclusion that there is a base state of that awareness, it only
varies on what it is aware of. If information is inherent through the universe and there is a base awareness in this universe, it is reasonable to
believe the two are intertwined and that this base awareness can access the information. This base awareness coupled with the seemingly infinite
amount of information in the universe makes for a Supreme Being who is aware of all that is.
This awareness, being in the closed system of the universe, has never been born and never will die. It has only expanded the amount of information
there is to be aware of through the act creation. This Being must be aware of information concerning how the energy of the universe came to exist
(most likely through an inquiry on the limits of itself after developing self-awareness). With that knowledge this Being could manipulate said energy,
an even easier feat if the energy is an expression of the Beings Self.
If you understand all of the previous information, you can see that John must be correct in his description of the beginning. In the beginning there
was the base awareness, as It expanded creating information for Itself to be aware of, for an infinite amount of time (time is a made up concept to
measure change, with no matter there is no change), It eventually came to information which allowed manipulation of this energy of Its own awareness.
This energy was directed through thought. Not thought in the context of the way we think after the development of language, but in the context of
holding what is and what could be in ones mind. As you can see, it is difficult to explain thought with out words or pictures (nothing existed to
picture at the time).
This doesn’t mean that there was not thought, if it did, that would mean that a human born with no ability to sense the outside world is incapable
of any type of thought or awareness (there will always be that base awareness). The brain organizes information that is input into its system in the
expectation of using that information. This correlates to the information innately stored in the universe. It is there, organized, being used and
waiting to be used.
