Constantly told about the beginning of the cosmos as having been perpetrated by some sort of ‘big bang’ theory, major and certain acclaimed scientists have alluded to the idea that there was one such event and that it is the causation of all we know and see and, in most instances, think. Exploration of physical laws also suggests this event occurred some fifteen billion years ago, and the result is that the universe will constantly expand until it gets to the point where it will implode upon itself. However, we should not concern ourselves with that ‘time’ frame … another fifteen billions years or so.
The actual reality of all of this, irrespective of scientific reporting, is that there is no such thing as one ‘big bang’ event, except perhaps in the form of constancy of expression of the Creative Power of the Universe, nor can there be. In light of the fact that scientists also suggest that there is no such thing as a god, and that everything just happened ex nihilo out of nothing as an emanation of ex nihilo itself, no-thing, it is an incontrovertible fact that something had to originate the beginning. If that concept is unacceptable or unbelievable, remember that all we see and know are extensions of ideas that had to emanate from some ‘thing’ or from some ‘where,’ whatever term used to describe it. That, taken into consideration, suggests a continuum of creation that started with one event and continues in an eternal sequence of one ‘big bang’ after another. Science has also proven that we are in a state of ever expansion until, supposedly, the universe burns out as suggested above.
It is important to relegate the idea of an ever-expanding universe to an insistence that new instruments and technologies of our day and age will continue to enhance our own illusions. That there is an expansion and creation as merely a constant beginning affords us the luxury of discovering the idea of time and space that our limited abilities and intellectual experiments suggest. As we proceed to know more about the ‘whatever,’ we begin to see more traces of motion in time and space only because of assumptive education and by piling one idea on top of another until we presume to come to understand the reason for it all.
All education and scientific exploration leads further and further into the morass of non- knowingness and the constant conjecture of one theory leading to another. As each new theory unfolds, the previous ideas become no longer functional, with rare exception. The amount of genius involved also becomes moot. Institutional speculation continues to evolve, and additional new instrumentation gives further evidence that a new theory is the one revealed due to intense searching and meditation. Eventually, all research and scientific reasoning will coincide with religious philosophy and metaphysical speculation, as will the opposite concur. Religious philosophy will eventually bolster the assumptions of scientific research, and both scientific and religious head scratching will come to a meaningless, dead end.
Why is there an incessant need to understand the reasoning for the creation of the universe? There can be no understanding or insight into the reasons for something that goes beyond the ability of man’s intelligence of certainty at this point in evolution. Apparently, faith in a higher intelligence is not enough. A plethora of ideas and theories exist; it becomes a matter of which is right, which is valid, which is closer to the truth, which has more believers (for whatever reason and does not make it correct), as well, that which can produce the most money for the progenitors of whatever method being prescribed or … foisted. Of religions, there must be hundreds, if not more, and scientific theories the same. There are more opinions than the discussions in the Talmud and more science and science fiction than can be imagined. Nothing new here, but thoughts are things.
The universe works like this. As the Creative Power of the Universe continues with ‘Its’ concepts, ideas that have been already thrown out to the indifference of the cosmos, certain individual minds will pick up on the ‘wave’ and act on it. Many may perceive it, but few will become enamored of it and proceed to see it manifest into fruition. This is why a constant ‘big bang’ is without cessation.
The premise of this article is to explain the vagaries of any ideas about creation and the wherewithal of emanation, irrespective of flashes of genius that periodically occur in an aleatory form. Again, each idea floats throughout the cosmos until picked up by any of the creations that have emanated from the source of all creativity that devote energy to it, until it is eventually put into practice. Any idea observed or acted on is not a new thing; all things have been created at the outset. New inventions, new ideas, and new social orders must cause man to think in terms of a constant renewal of creation: the machine guns of God. Perhaps in a thousand years Earth will lose its original meaning as the source of all civilization. As we reach out to the stars and create our own universe, without relying on past prejudices and thoughts of meaningless control, true freedom for all creations, including humanity, will result, as may possibly be the original intention of creation. Asimov spoke of this in his Foundation Trilogy, as well as many other science-fiction visionaries, concepts, and ideas that, too, are fraught with eternal conflict. That being a possibility suggests that where we are in space and time at this moment is the result of our present planet having been seeded by, indeed, another intelligence that does not have to be considered higher or lower. Rationally and logically speaking, there are just too many variations of ‘types’ to have been individually developed in the short period of time that mankind has inhabited Earth.
To fully understand personal reasons for existence and to know purpose in the overall order of ‘things,’ it is essential to take into consideration, and to contemplate, the premise that the universe in and of itself was created specifically and without restriction for the Self, the self, and the Self and the self alone. Appreciating and understanding without frustration or confusion is a simple matter of acceptance of purpose, as all things come to be with ease and grace, and with no need for consternation, anger, or self-pity.
The machine guns of God are a permanency, the only permanency in the entire cosmos. The ever expanding universe is proof of that, and as humanity steps into the void with the assurance that success will follow, and, when certain rules are observed and heeded, the completeness of it all will be apparent … and not before. However, don’t despair. We still have fifteen billion years to get it together.
