As I see it the big bang model takes non-existence
for granted and gets the Universe out of nothing. But if instead we take existence for granted but not
space and time, we see at once that that existence must be changeless (not in time), infinite
and undivided (not in space), and that seeing that existence as in space and time must be a mistake.
is made of energy. It’s the underlying existence showing through in the mistake of seeing things in space and time.
shows through against smallness as the electrical energy of the minuscule particles, and, as the rest mass of the electron.
shows through against dividedness and dispersion as the gravitational energy of the dispersed particles and as the rest mass
of the proton.
The Changeless shows
through against changes as inertia.
reason we see a Universe of hydrogen is because Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle prevents the electron from sitting
on the proton. This necessary uncertainty is characteristic of mistakes. If we mistake
a rope for a snake, we cannot identify the snake.
As this hydrogen falls together by gravity to galaxies and stars,
its radiation drives the cosmological expansion which imposes a boundary to the observable Universe where the red-shifting
of the receding particles approaches totality. All radiation going through the region near the boundary
where the rest mass of the particles is seen to be very low will be so often picked up and re-radiated that it will be thermalized
to the microwave background radiation discovered by Penzias and Wilson in 1965.
Now an interesting thing about that border is
that through Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle it recycles the hydrogen and the negative entropy back in. The observational
evidence for this recycling from the border is the Hubble telescope report that there is more than enough hydrogen in those
inter-galactic voids to make all the known galaxies. From where else could the hydrogen come?
So we see that if we see
what we see as in space and time we will automatically see a Universe of hydrogen falling together by gravity to galaxies
and stars. And since the observable border recycles the hydrogen and the negative entropy the question is: Is the Universe
So we see that the Universe has all three of the defining characteristics of a living organism; a boundary between
inside and outside across which it replicates the hydrogen and recycles negative entropy.
If the Universe were not alive in this sense I
think nothing could be alive within it. From where could the negative entropy come?Our question is: Why do we continue to see this mistake? It’s because our genetic programming is primarily
concerned with the prime directives – replication and negative entropy. Speaking to women Sri Ramakrishna referred to
them as man and gold.
