This is my first thread and I thought this topic would be a great place to start. I'd like to begin by saying that I don't base any of this
information solely on fact, this is simply my thoughts and ideas, as I would like it if you could post your thoughts also in the reply section.
After reading a thread a little while back stating that scientists have discovered the universe resembles a brain cell. After seeing that, and having
that idea in my head I began to think... Not just about the universe and brain cells, but how that could relate to religion and other things.
(For those who have not seen the thread I am referring to you can find it here
You may be asking yourself how that could relate religion, but think of it this way, in our brain we have millions, if not, billions of brain cells
that combine to form our brain. If you think of our entire universe as one brain cell, that would mean that there are millions, or billions, of
universes (or brain cells) that form one HUGE brain in comparison to us. Based upon the Michio Kaku videos I have seen where he describes string
theory in a way that makes sense to average people, it is a theory that states there is not just one universe, but rather multiple universes connected
by wormholes. ( I can't link any of his videos because I currently don't have access to youtube, but if you search "Michio Kaku" I'm sure you'll find
"How does any of that relate to religion?" You might be asking, allow me to elaborate on this idea. If you are still thinking of the universe as part
of a giant brain cell that is part of an even larger brain, what would that brain be for? Possibly a superbeing, which could be what many religions
refer to as "God" or "Gods" in polytheistic religions. I believe that somehow, a select few humans managed to know about these superbeings and the
only way they could describe them is as "God" the ruler of mankind. In polytheistic religions, they could have gotten a glimpse of more than one of
these superbeings, which is where they got the idea that there are multiple gods.
An important idea that is required for this idea to make absolute sense is, the idea that time is not consistent amongst all beings. By this I mean,
that a year for one of these "Superbeings" could be over 10 million years for us.
I'd like to conclude my thoughts on this by saying, if you think of the universe in this way would that mean that we ourselves are superbeings that
contain millions of universes in our heads? Also, would the chain continue infinitely? These are just a few of my thoughts and ideas and I thought I
should get them out into the world and see what you guys think. Please feel free to reply sharing your thoughts, I'd love to hear what you guys have
to say about this.
Thank you ATS,
