The New Physics and the New Jerusalem

 

My experience over the past several years with both physicists and theologians who are concerned with fundamentals is that I detect a real sense of anxiety. Both “sides” strongly believe that we are in need of a major paradigm shift.

The issue is unity.

Contemporary physicists, unable to unify the two pillars of modern physics—relativity theory and quantum theory—feel that a more adequate reformulation of these concepts still needs to be achieved. The universe cannot be based on two theories that do not mesh.

Similarly, contemporary theologians are acknowledging that a fresh approach to the doctrine of Scripture is needed to make its interpretation more inclusive and perpetually relevant to all faith-seekers, in all periods of human history, including the future. Religion, which has roots in the Latin word for ligament (ligare), meaning to bind and bring together, has unfortunately had an opposite effect all throughout history.

These problems become unimaginably intensified for those pioneering and rare individuals who are seriously attempting to unify the truth claims of both science and religion. It is useless to unify inadequate theology with inadequate scientific theory.

Humans will not find solutions to these difficult problems by means of academia and scholarship. The final answers can only come from the Lord God. Thankfully, since God wishes to share deeper knowledge about the ultimate reality with the human race, a divine delivery system has been set up to accomplish that very thing.

It is called the Lord’s Second Coming. And it is taking place right now.

Don’t look for earthquakes and great battles to begin. Rather, the Second Coming will be a shaking of the very foundations of our world-views. And the great battle to take place will happen within our hearts and minds over whether we should defend our old thinking or embrace the Lord’s promise to make all things “anew.” So God is promising a shake-up and overhaul of all our scientific and theological thinking.

The first Advent of the Lord was physical. The second is psychical. First we see, next, we understand.

The Lord is now revealing potent new concepts to the world. God’s guidance is required because these new ideas exist on deeper levels of meaning that are contained within the narratives of the Holy Word. The New Jerusalem will be a new church formed of individuals who are able to accept and adopt these doctrinal revelations into their faith-system.

How does this help science? Will modern science also benefit from the Second Coming?

Yes.

As these deeper levels of meaning in Scripture are revealed to us we will be able to gain an intelligible idea of how everything in the universe and its laws emerged from patterning principles hidden within the architecture of the Holy Word (John, 1:1-3).

I have had access to these new ideas (a new dispensation from the Lord) for almost 35 years. I can attest to the potency of these revelations because they have allowed me to write a book that will address such challenging issues as the nexus between the Infinite and the finite, resolve the problem of the Big Bang singularity, the emergence of spacetime and matter from nonphysical and pre-geometric (spiritual) principles, address top-down causality, offer a new theory of evolution, provide a comprehensive multi-level model of human cognitive function, explore the neural basis of religion, answer the mystery of the Neanderthals, explain the mechanism behind hypnotism, address quantum gravity, life after death, and the reality of the spiritual world.

All this will revolve around the totally unexpected idea that LOVE is ultimate formative substance and ultimate reality. In other words, a cosmological model, based on the dynamics of love, can provide us with an exact science (with real explanatory and predictive powers).

If taking the concept of love beyond its usual romantic connotation, and making it the fundamental stuff and law-giving agent of the universe, sends a shockwave through your brain, then congratulations. You have just experienced a small taste of what the “end of days” really address.

If you have been following my posts you will know how to gain access to the hottest news to come directly out of heaven.

I am sure you must have lots and lots of questions.

Can you handle a hot potato from God?

 

Would you share important information with people you could not trust? Of course not. It is the same with God.

Much of what goes wrong in the world seems to stem from our species having favored self-gain and domination over the attributes of wisdom or sincere love of the neighbor.

This cosmic propensity for blunder is the real outcome of our species having spiritually fallen from grace and having been removed from the Garden of Eden. And Scripture informs us that God had even taken drastic measures to ensure that there is no easy way back into paradise. God placed special cherubim yielding flaming swords to guard access to the Tree of Life.

How could this behavior represent a God of infinite love and a God who is eternally concerned with our salvation? To explain this mystery of faith in a satisfactory way will require releasing the very information that God has been so carefully trying to keep secret. I am revealing this sacred information because I believe and trust that God’s Providence has brought you to this post.

In Revelation we are introduced to a “future” event where the Holy City, The New Jerusalem, will descend to earth from heaven. In this wonderful city, humankind will again have access to the Tree of Life – minus the frightening cherubim guards.

At face value, neither cherubim guarding a special tree or a city descending out of the sky makes any scientific sense. And how did the Tree of Life find its way into heaven before descending back to earth between these two biblical events? There must be more to these stories then meets the eye.

Gaining a deeper understanding of biblical stories is precisely the secret information that God wishes to share with us, but from divine foresight, and taking into account human behavior, is forced to protect. So let me release this trial balloon on you.

The Garden of Eden was not a physical garden. It was a pristine state of wisdom and innocence. Therefore, being removed from such a psychical paradise is to be removed from wisdom. Similarly, the descent of a Holy City from heaven cannot involve a physical city, but is a return of wisdom and innocence to humanity based on a heavenly design for proper living.

This holy design gains super clarity as deeper levels of meaning within Scripture are revealed to us. But this cannot be allowed as long as we prefer our own prudence to God’s wisdom, and continue to prefer self-love over love of others. The human preference for self-guidance over God-guidance is the obstacle that keeps men and women from having access to the Tree of Life. The Tree of Life is God’s wisdom.

So why does God need cherubim with flaming swords to protect it? The reason is, that when the various images depicted in this biblical drama are interpreted from a more elevated meaning, we learn that cherubim represent God’s foresight in protecting divine truth. Flaming swords symbolize the intense (burning) desire to forge our own belief systems (which cut us off from God’s influence). That these swords can be turned “every which way” represents all the various corporeal conclusions we make from the principle of self-love, and self-pride which seeks knowledge only through the senses and material world.

So a deeper interpretation of the Genesis story reveals a drama that takes place within the human heart and mind. Human misjudgments and delusions are what stymie God’s attempts at revealing hidden things to us. If God were to offer this information to people who were not prepared to resist the intoxicating power of self-love or favoring their own prudence, they would screw it up badly and be in a worse situation than before. What you don’t know you can’t profane.

The reason why sacred information is so easily profaned by unprepared individuals, is because such a condition always causes men and women to revert back to their original egocentric impulses and pollute what belongs to God. As long as these negative impulses are alive and well within the human heart and mind, “cherubim” must stand guard to spare us from making a mistake with eternal consequences.

When an individual is prepared to make the proper changes in his or her life, it is a sign to God that it is safe to begin the process of spiritual enlightenment. Revealing deeper levels of meaning within the Holy Word is the big secret behind the true nature of the Lord’s Second Coming. It happens when you are ready!

I pray that you have not stumbled upon this sacred information prematurely.

Why does God keep secrets from us?

God doesn’t always tell us the whole truth. Why would this be?

For one thing, as humans with finite minds, we are unable to absorb and comprehend the ineffable data concerning an Infinite God. But God also keeps secrets from us about things that we are quite capable of comprehending.

In the second case, these secrets are kept from us for our own good. God actually keeps billions of people on earth in ignorance in order to save them.

When we know something, it is mere data in the memory. But what we acknowledge from the things we know becomes a part of the very fabric of our lives. In other words, what we acknowledge we become responsible for.

Not taking responsibility for what we believe to be true is to profane that truth or idea.

God is continuously seeking to reveal deeper spiritual truths to humankind. This includes putting many of the deepest mysteries of faith within the reach of human reasoning. But God has to be very, very careful. If we were to learn something new concerning God, acknowledge it, then not take responsibility for this new information, we would be profaning that very spiritual truth.

The mixing up of deeper spiritual truth with one’s own personal worldly preferences causes both divine and profane things to become fused together into the very fabric of one’s spiritual reality. Having profane things contained within the fabric and texture of our spirit is what leads to damnation. God never condemns anyone. The reason for damnation is that the spiritual world (one’s eternal abode) reflects the quality of one’s inner reality. Everyone is his or her own punishment.

So God is careful not to reveal deeper secrets to those who can neither handle the extra responsibility nor to those that the new information will simply go over their heads. In either case, nothing is profaned.

I am saying this to you because God is now actively making new information available to the world. The secret of the Lord’s Second Coming is that it involves new ideas—a paradigm shift. God’s revealed truths contained within the narratives of Holy Scripture actually have much, much more to reveal than meets the eye.

One of the main purposes of this blog is to help introduce you to new levels of meaning within the Holy Word. This new information will not only offer greater evidence for the authority of Scripture, but will even unify science with theology.

Remember, if this stuff goes over your head it is still a good thing!

Evolution Mystery Solved?

When did we become human? This is a question that still remains to be solved by anthropologists.

Did we become human when we first stood up on two legs, freeing our hands for tool making, which demanded more mental ingenuity? Was it the creation of language? Art?

In order to understand at what point our species became human, we need to understand what it means to be human.

Humans enjoy both an external (corporeal) and inner (spiritual) reality. Our external reality is similar to that of other creatures, which have natural and worldly desires for food, comfort and sex. But our deeper, inner reality is something other creatures do not share.

This inner reality provided a medium by which God could affect the minds of men and women and enter into a most unique relationship. Through this medium and relationship, the human species can override its corporeal or natural level and continue to evolve inwardly into new spiritual beings called angels.

According to the theological writings and personal discoveries of Emanuel Swedenborg, we became human when we first began to both recognize and worship God. We are human from what we receive from God through our inner, psychical world.

God has given men and women two capacities in life that make us human. They are free will and discernment. These two capacities are the essence of human form (not ten toes and fingers or an upright stance). These two gifts are the finite equivalent of God’s Divine Love and Divine Wisdom. Free will has reference to love and discernment has reference to wisdom.

It is the two capacities of free will and discernment that make us an image of the Lord God. They allow God to make a covenant with the human race.

The Infinite essence is Love. Love is living and conscious (wise). Love is Infinite Personality. So God’s form is infinitely and divinely human.

Therefore one could also say that standing upright is what made us human—if we look at this as an inner or mental posture—which allows us to gaze towards heaven rather than have our eyes always fixed to the earth. In this way “standing upright,” means becoming an upright citizen through the observance of God’s tenets.

Our special God-given inner reality, called spirit, is the means by which men and women can gain eternal life and happiness.

Jesus is Jehovah

One of the most harmful ideas a Christian can have is that the Holy Trinity represents three persons, rather than three attributes of one Divine Person (like omniscience, omnipotence and omnipresence).

Under this “polytheistic” concept the idea of Salvation becomes ludicrous. It portrays that God the Father became utterly disgusted with the human race but that His Son, after suffering on the cross for the sake of humankind, so impressed Him with compassion that He had second thoughts. Of course, this means the Heavenly Father only really loved His Son and humans are still to be considered as worthless crap. This divine shallowness makes it hard to reconcile how God can be infinite love and infinite wisdom.

This idea of the Trinity gets even worse when we consider that technically, Jesus saves no one, but that Jehovah God sends the Holy Spirit to do the actual saving. So worshiping God is tricky business. We mortals can easily make the mistake of approaching the wrong God at the wrong time. Such a spiritual faux pas can land us into eternal trouble (yes, people with good hearts can be damned on technicalities).

This confusing matter is cleared up when a person comes to understand that the stories of Scripture offer three distinct levels of meaning, each containing deeper interpretations of God’s revealed truth. But since it is extremely difficult to share with you entirely new levels of interpretation (quantum language) within a short post, I can happily say that even a careful inspection of the literal (lowest) meaning of the Holy Word verifies that there is only One God. In other words, it is Jehovah God who is eternally concerned for humankind and who is our redeemer and savior:

I will make mention of mercies of Jehovah; He hath requited them according to His mercies, and according to the multitude of His mercies; and He became their Saviour. In all their affliction He was afflicted, and the angel of His faces saved them; in His love and in his pity He redeemed them. (Isaiah 63:7-9)

In the amazing theological work of Emanuel Swedenborg, entitled the Apocalypse Revealed (pages 405-7) he offers several other biblical quotes that point to the idea that Jehovah Himself would come into the world and assume the Human form as our visible Savior. Here are a few:

It shall be said in that day, Lo, This is our God, whom we have waited for, that He may free us; This is Jehovah, whom we have waited for; let us exult and rejoice in His salvation. (Isaiah, 25:9)

Am I not Jehovah? and there is no God else besides Me; a just God and a Savior, there is none besides Me. (Isaiah, 45:21,22)

Unto us a Boy is born, unto us a Son is given, whose name is Wonderful, Counsellor, God, Hero, the Father of eternity, the Prince of peace. (Isaiah, 9:6)

Philip said unto Jesus, Show us the Father; Jesus said unto him, He that seeth Me seeth the Father; how sayest thou than, show us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father and the Father in Me? Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me. (John, 14:8-11)

Thankfully, most worshippers do not bother with the mind-numbing details of how their particular Church denomination explains the Holy Trinity. This spares many Christians from falling into false doctrines.

But should you be of an inquisitive mind, I invite you to ask your priest or minister to give you the exact and full details of how God, under the Trinitarian Doctrine, will save you. Since your salvation is at stake, DEMAND AN ANSWER. Then you be the judge of whether it satisfies Jehovah God’s first commandment.

If they tell you that faith in Jesus overrides following the ten commandments, then get the heck out of there!

Creation and the Metrics of Love

While this has led some theorists to believe in a Creation out of nothingness (Creatio ex nihilo), the problem with such a scenario is that it leads us to a cosmic dead end if we have set our hearts at finding the first causal principles of reality. How can we understand agency and natural law emerging from a pre-physical void? What special initial conditions could exist in a non-spatial and non-temporal realm that would be capable of carrying the seeds for our fruitful universe?

Thankfully, some serious forward-thinking physicists are working with the idea that time and space may have emerged from a realm of pre-geometry. In this pre-space, pre-temporal realm, there is a new kind of “activity.” Rather than the usual concept of motion or trajectory as a displacement of position, this activity would involve a change of states.

Is there anything that falls within our human experience that can verify whether dynamical change can really take place apart from spacetime measurement? Yes there is! In fact, change of state or non-physical action actually represents the most intimate perception of reality that we are conscious of. We even apply a unique standard of measurement to this non-physical activity.

We experience these change of states as our mental states (and changing dispositions). The human mind cannot be said to be located in space yet the mind’s thoughts and feelings are real activities that have real trajectories and measurement (metrics). Our goals and wishes represent these non-physical trajectories and we possess an inner sense of the psychical “distance” between where we are and where we need to be upon accomplishing our goals. We can also have big goals and smaller goals.

Obviously, our individual mental goals are not measured in meters, inches, miles or yardsticks. They are measured by what we value (which are all derivatives of love). This inner measurement is even more real to us then our physical reality because IT IS “US.”

People can seem close to us, or miles apart, according to whether we have similar values and affections (which has nothing to do with physical distance). If a person is unselfish and loving, we see him or her as “big” person (sometimes a giant among others) but if an individual is selfish he or she is seen as acting very “small.”

So size, distance, and place all come under a different standard of measurement when concerning our inner or spiritual reality. In this inner world, love sets the parameters.

So what does all this have to with discovering the first principles and special initial conditions of the universe before the appearance of time and space? Well, rather than nothingness, perhaps the world was created from LOVE. In other words, love should be scientifically considered as fundamental formative substance.

If the universe had a beginning (and was created) then first causal principles and agency must be sought after in a non-physical realm where time equaled zero (t=0). This realm must provide us with the origin of natural law and offer an explanation of how the quantum world of possibilities can logically take us to the time-irreversible outcomes of least actions that we see operating on larger scales of the cosmos (Newtonian physics). But I believe first principles must do even more than this, much more!

There is a concept in physics called the correspondence principle in which prior realities must help explain posterior realities. So if we truly seek a priori or first principles these principles must show us why nature is unified and has a continuous compulsion (endeavor) for self-organization and increased complexity, including bio-complexity.

First principles must not only be able to function in a pre-space world but they must represent living and organic principles right out of the starting gate!

Existence is relationship. Nothing exists without co-existence. The essence of love is an endeavor to unite. Even the organized mutual cooperation of living systems is a physical analog of Love. In humans, the bio-complexity of the brain has reached a level of sophistication where we can consciously choose to improve civilization through noble acts of love and the mutual sharing of our talents.

In such a cosmic scheme, first principles descend from a non-physical realm into the world of matter, than ascend back towards the invisible realm through increased complexity, the evolution of human consciousness, and resulting in the development of a non-physical, inner reality. This non-physical realm is called heaven.

Therefore, religion was given to humans in order that their activities and lives could put the first principles of the universe on display and help God realize the ultimate scheme of creation – the exaltation of love.

Love is the only force I know of that manifests endeavor and possibility. And, since love seeks self-representation in all things created (which is why everything is interconnected through utility), it absolutely requires the correspondence principle, self-consistency, a principle of least action, and the fine-tuning of natural laws.

Love is the ultimate science. The purpose of my next book, Proving God, is to flush out all these ideas in order to unify science with God’s wonderful plan.

Eating Your Way To Heaven

The multitudes of diet books for sale attest to the fact that we humans have developed poor eating habits. Eating involves more than satisfying one’s appetite, it also partakes of judgment. We constantly have to judge between eating what gives us the most pleasure and what food will do us the most good.

But is there a food so healthy for us that eating it will turn us into angels and get us all the way to heaven? The answer is “yes.”

Of course, eating your way to heaven does not mean merely switching your dessert from a seven-layered devil’s food cake to angel cake. Heaven is not a physical world, so it requires a steady diet of special, non-physical foodstuffs.

In my previous post I brought up the idea of a more rarefied aliment that is especially suitable to our species. Humans also have an appetite and a thirst for knowledge. The human brain and mind are actually the digestive system of our spirit. Everything the physical digestive system does with terrestrial food has its analog with what the mind does with information.

For example, we chew and ruminate on ideas. This mental activity lets us find out whether ideas or concepts are savory to our personal tastes and worthy of being “swallowed.” Next, our mind churns and rolls these ideas around so that they can be broken down further into their constituents. The mind then scrutinizes this mental material more deeply. In this way our discernment and judgment act as mental digestive enzymes (the acid test). If these constituents are judged as agreeable, they are finally absorbed and enter into the very fabric of our inner being (otherwise they are jettisoned as “crap”).

Like physical food, there are ideas which can seduce our thinking and bring us lots of pleasure, but are not necessarily going to do us the most good. This is why we need to reflect on all our compulsions. This is also why we need a higher form of nutritional guidance and wisdom to help our judgment.

God’s Holy Word is actually a Divine Diet Book. The whole cosmic drama of Adam and Eve was based solely on what to eat and what not to eat. In the same way that physical food is metabolized and becomes part of our spiritual being, information is metabolized in a way that it can become part of our inner or spiritual being. Therefore, both types of “eating” represent appropriation. We can accept God and religion or reject it.

Now the phrase “you are what you eat” takes on a more critical and eternal meaning. When one sheds his or her physical body after death in this world we are left with our spiritual fabric, which was formed out of the ideas, concepts, and belief systems we developed a strong appetite for. We then gravitate to either a world of compulsions or an unselfish world of wisdom.

It is not hard to imagine that a world where compulsive behavior runs rampant will be populated by individuals who seek to satisfy only themselves. This creates an environment of hatred and sets up a condition whereby there can only be eternal frustration in people’s never-ending hunger to dominate others and have things their own way. This frustration is the eternal “fire” of hell.

On other hand, those in heaven have developed their spiritual bodies to be able to metabolize and act according to God’s love and wisdom. I hope I have made these ideas easier for you to digest.

Bon apetit!
