Here is a humorous, but not deeply thought out cartoon strip (on YouTube) that its creator believes proves there is no God. To me however it proves that its author, who appears creative, has no great intelligence spent on this project of disproving God. This cartoon assumes the logic that infinities have limits that are “kind of far off.” You
blow up one God and his or her infinity and that God finds itself in the next layer above, where a greater God reigns. This is “silly” but the author feels it disproves God’s existence, since God cannot just come from nowhere (well at least so the author thinks). The cartoon is arguing that if God created us, who created God? The author feels that there is no ultimate God who Created God and so the concept of God is illogical. This is the limited and curious nature of human logic when trying to understand the infinite. It is, to me, an illogical and silly argument. Spinoza did not worry about this and perhaps rightfully so, but being human, I am not sure as I am limited by my knowledge. On the other hand, I can derive a lot from what I do know and doing so offers interesting possible explanations..
In defining the Ultimate Substance (God?) Spinoza left out nothing. As a result all dimensions of reality are included whether higher or lower. Infinity can be both infinitely large and infinitely small (it defies logic but seems to make intuitive sense). How does this make for a “consciousness” of God like proportion? I am not sure that that question even makes sense for mere mortals like me to ask. However, intuitively we can extrapolate from what we are learning through science (yes science) and see the line that the dots connect and where it takes us. Let’s try that for a moment.
Consider that we know that the lightning phenomena Schumann Resonance
Entrainment and Affects our Psychobiology. This means that our minds basic resonance, was likely established by our interaction with the Earth’s very sky high electromagnetic discharge layer; our brain functions are electromagnetically connected to the Earth! Sun cycles
, seasons, affect human sleep cycles, our basic physiology and mind. The moon’s gravitational wave probably affects human mood
as it does the tide of the ocean (though still debated, most of us see its proof on the day of a full moon). The biome of the Eart
h (if Monsanto doesn’t poison it) is the basis of our life generating ability to eat food from the Earth. In fact there are more Earth Bacteria
than genetic cells in our bodies! So, our brains are connected to the Sky electromagnetically and our bodies are connected to the ground of Earth biologically. WE are connected to the Earth in ways we may never have imagined! Our skin is not the boundary of our bodies
as we like to think. There is LOTS more to this.
Ok…. so that is our first dot on our graph soon be drawn
. Now consider that the interaction of the sun, even though 93 million miles away, affects our survival
and may in fact also alter our genetics through energetic waves that reach us. All the planets in the solar system affect all of the rest by gravitational effects. In essence, the whole darn solar system is connected with mathematical precision and communicating with each other by gravitational tugs of war.
Moving on we find that there is strong evidence that every galaxy (we are part of one) has a black hole at its center. A hole that creates an infinity…… This massive “hole” connects the whole galaxy together in a mathematically perfect communication of space-time distortion (our vortex like Galaxy) and rules of interaction and function (which just may be life at a level too big for us to comprehend!). You’re questioning this life assumption of life…? We recently learned that all the trees we cut down have families and know their children and relatives. We also learned that they communicate via fungal rhizomes which are like their Internet. The communication allows one tree to talk to another at a distance and ask for nutritional help and receive it…. in proportion to how related they are (just like human families). If trees can talk why not planets? You say trees don’t have brains? Yes, but they apparently don’t need them! In fact slime molds, also without brains, learn! This is redefining intelligence. When Einstein said we only know 1% of what there is to know, he was being way too egotistic!
Moving down the ladder in size do not forget that bacteria are NOW known to communicate and wage war much more effectively than we can as human armies. we call it Quorum Sensing
but keep in mind it is Communication and Cooperation. Moving even further down, we discover that entangled atomic particles can communicate at any distance instantaneously
… even if we cannot yet figure out how to use that for ourselves without disentangling them. In essence, there is no speed limit on data in the universe nor does the universe conceive of distance as the limitation it appears to be for us humans! If there is no distance when it comes to entangled particles communicating, God would have no limits in his reach even assuming he had to follow his own laws.
I think we have a several dots on our graph now
. What does this tell us? It tells us how little we know about the “size” of sentient beings! It tells us that our boundaries are not our skin
but our planet, our solar system our galaxy, our universe and possibly infinity. It tells us that intelligence and communication are not just the province of human beings; but, likely something the entire Galaxy does in one way or another (and don’t expect the understanding of the language of Stars anytime soon as their longevity and environment makes it pretty close to impossible to ever grasp..maybe).
So what is the point of this discussion and graphing the ever expanding human knowledge of how the universe communicates?
It is to say that this graphical path very likely points at
God. God being a “being” of infinite size, infinite power and infinite knowledge. In fact the dots point to logical and meaningful communication at every level of scale we can imagine and that hints at intelligence and NOT simple mechanical interaction. At least if we are intelligent (and that assumes a lot) the infinite God is far beyond us. God is not likely a woman wearing a stunning white robe who passes judgment on us….. but I cannot be totally sure as I am human and limited….. I think.
In any case, it appears we have just found God. Name him / her what you will, but I will argue that God clearly lives and exists. Oh yes, and that this God needs no creator since it is the sum total of all…..
PS: OK…. I hear an objection as to what created all from nothing. The answer is nothing! You certainly cannot deny that there is something here like maybe you and I? Think about it, without something you cannot have nothing so existence may be like everything else we perceive, a sine wave. There are sine waves for all electromagnetic radiation, hot and cold, dense and vacuum, loud sound and quiet, if so why not a sine wave of nothing and everything? Your disbelief and my belief create reality we are just looking at it in different cycles. So you are just coming through in waves, your lips move but I cannot hear what you say!
