Terms understanding of eternity
People of science say that the cosmos arose from the so-called singularity. They know, of course, the result of its occurrence, but they really know nothing about it. They use this arbitrary term as a kind of "comfortable faith" removing from them the need to talk about the existence of the Creator of the universe. At the same time, people who believe in God also recognize Him as a "singularity" called Yahweh, Heavenly Father, or Allah. In fact, both groups show a similar state, which is called "knowledge" in some and faith in the other. Hence, in the case of the universe, it can be concluded that there is actually no difference between believers in God and those who do not believe in Him.
Essenceism, avoiding classical religious concepts, tries to explore what is behind this peculiarity. He does not want to argue with creeds that cling to "their gods" made in their "image and likeness." My system also doesn't want to ask scientists questions about infinity and eternity that they don't know the answer to. That is why the concept of the Original Being was created in my system. I introduced them as the main assumption of essenceism. Both science and religion know the concept of First Cause. This may allow us to connect His identity with the Original Being and facilitate our understanding of His existence in an infinite and eternal sphere beyond time and space. I will now explain in points what follows.
First, the Original Being must be One, that is, it must be the absolute and only Source of all things. Only when something emerges from Him in the form of creation can we speak of a duality or multiple of the state of coexistence. Concurrently with the objects emerging from Him, forces of coherence arise, striving for their unity, which reflects the First Source. Therefore, what emerges from the Original Being should be different states of good between which the energy of cohesion interacts. In the case of humans, the state of this energy is, for example, the love between husband and wife. The different states of good deriving from the Original Being are concrete forms of existence, which is best illustrated by the model of the basic unit of matter, i.e. the atom. It shows the principle of dividing the unity into two opposite states, i.e. positive and negative, and the energy acting between them under various forms of interaction. The entire structure of the atom represents the unity depicted in miniature of the Original Being.
Secondly, the Original Being issued from Himself the fundamental principles of existence, together with the resulting Laws. With them, He also emerged from Himself the Praenergy, which takes on various forms of energy and matter in the universe. Hence, as it was mentioned in the previous point, each His creative action causes the formation of specific "good objects" and the accompanying energy. Science tries to describe it all. It noticed that when these two entities separated from the "source" begin to coexist, they create very complex structures and systems. Essenceism adds that they have an appropriate level of intelligence encoded in them. Thousands of years had to pass before the knowledge contained in them was decoded and described by people. Now it made it possible to define the main attributes of the Original Being. They are Intelligence, Will and Emotionality. It follows that the Original Being has a Personality, i.e. that it can be treated as the Original Being, fully unlimited in time and space. The above attributes of the Original Being enable Him to be the Creator. In essenceism, this is the main thesis of the system.
Third, essenceism concluded that the Original Being presented above had a clear purpose in creating the universe. The analysis of the details found on the globe leads to the conclusion that the Creator refined His work in terms of the presence of humanity on it. Hence the conclusion that we live on a "buttoned up" planet that should be our home forever. It is to enable the birth of new generations of His children forever. Everything has been prepared on it so that people can bring it and themselves to the state of perfection. This is how one should understand the biblical statement that God rested after the symbolic six days of His "work". Essenceism adds to this the observation that before the "well deserved rest" He also organized our future life in His world beyond time and space, that is, in the spiritual world.
Fourth, the Original Being treated human existence in a completely different way than the rest of creation. It can be briefly stated that the people who were His children were born directly by Him. Meanwhile, all the rest of creation was fashioned according to the usual function of creation. It can be said that creation is formed in the Image of the Creator, and people additionally in His Image, because they have received eternal life. What distinguishes a man from the most developed being on Earth, i.e. from an animal, is his spiritual person being the proper eternal human being. Its goal is to achieve personal perfection during the earthly life, so that thanks to it we can live eternally in a sphere beyond time and space, alongside his Creator and Father.
Fifth, everything indicates that the world organized by the Creator was not properly developed by people. It seems that the development planned by Him stopped, and people on Earth began to create a reality completely unknown to Him. Essenceism unequivocally called this reality hell, because its main mechanism is evil. It must have happened right at the beginning of human existence. Symbolically, this event is described in the Bible. It was attended by Adam, Eve and their guardian Archangel Lucifer. On the initiative of the latter, they created a state among themselves that completely reversed the order previously established by the Creator and initiated the existence of the world under the rule of an Archangel transformed into Satan. This means the aforementioned hell. According to essenceism, these three destroyed the original orientation of love, which led to evil, that is, the dominant position of Satan. Today we experience the effects of this tragedy every day. It is a small consolation that it has been partially weakened by the efforts of various spiritual figures, especially Jesus Christ. However, we still live in an evil world that we leave very far from being perfect. After physical death, we remain in the vestibule in front of the proper sphere of the world, beyond time and space in which the Original Being awaits.
Sixth, if the Creator helped people to repair the evil created on Earth, it would prove that his concept of creation turned out to be imperfect and that He Himself had failed. However, it cannot be so and it is not. God, of course, created people and angels, but the situation between Archangel Lucifer and Adam and Eve took place completely beyond of God, that is, as part of their independent action. So the question is whether good beings can produce evil and whether God is responsible for it. It seems that the Creator gave out of Himself beings who created a phenomenon completely unknown to Him and, of course, without His participation. This phenomenon is a change in the direction of the force of love between them. Thus, they activated one and only possibility that was not controlled by the Creator, and which was symbolically defined as "the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil". It was also done by imperfectly children of God who were beyond His control because of their period of development. who, also as a result of the same change in the direction of the force of love, lost his position and the bond of life with the Creator. This could only happen because the power of love has an advantage over the life force, so when used in the wrong direction, it destroyed the relationship with God, which means spiritual death. Despite equipping the first people with all the attributes necessary to achieve perfection, the participants of the event fell outside the safe limits of the force of love and fell into a spiritual abyss. In this situation, God is still waiting for people to return to the state intended by Him, because He Himself is beyond time and space, and time for Him does not pass. Even if, after the next thousands of years, people finally return to the right path of development, God's waiting for people will not have a time dimension. Thus, the Original Being still expects that we will one day reach Him as perfect spiritual beings. You can see that it's up to us how quickly we'll do it. So I repeat the essenceism claim that God does not take part in the salvation of the world, because it is the responsibility of people led by the Son of God as Savior.
Seventh, the situation described above makes it possible to identify the source of evil, which makes it possible to eliminate it. Although people got to know this source, so far they have not been able to repair the world, that is, to save it. Out of the various missions for the salvation of the world, Jesus Christ carried out the most important one. The problem is that people, instead of helping Him, murdered Him. Only the fact that He was the Son of God could cause Him to redeem people's spiritual lives at the cost of His life. This shows that the value of the Son of God is greater than that of all people living in hell put together. Jesus forced Satan to redeem they spiritual life after the defeat of the people of the nation of Israel. If this nation had accepted the Messiah they expected, today we would probably be living in a world where there would be no evil. Thus, the joint effort of the Savior, people and angels can lead to full salvation. If it didn't happen two thousand years ago, it might be the next time. The condition for success is to understand that God, who knows no evil and cannot interfere with it, cannot do it for us. Thus, the responsibility for salvation rests in human hands. The way of salvation may be similar to the way people went in the Old Testament in preparation for the coming of the Messiah. Therefore, people of the modern era should work out the possibility of the birth of the Son of God on Earth and, together with Him, cleanse the human race from connections with Satan.
So the question remains, what to do now? Certainly, we should not wait for God to have mercy on us and for Him to accomplish salvation. It will never happen. Also, it is not worth waiting for the vision of the Last Judgment to appear in the sky, and Jesus Christ from the clouds begins to reward or punish us for our sins. Therefore, it is worth realizing that the so-called "religious" end of the world is really the end of evil, that is, the full salvation of the world. If we humans don't do it, no one can replace us. Of course, one can argue that there is still a certain chance to help in the salvation of our world. Unfortunately, it is quite unlikely, as it would rely on the intervention of a perfect human civilization from space. It is about one that was created and still functions in accordance with the concept of the Original Being. We don't know anything about it yet. However, if there were such worlds in space, they would not come to us in spaceships anyway. Rather, we can count on their spiritual support, i.e. help from spiritual people, people brought up in an environment where there is no evil. They, like the angels, could support many "earthly mendicants", called globetrotters in the concept of essenceism. They would wander the length and breadth of the Earth with the knowledge of Being Original, mobilizing humanity to remove Satan from our planet.
Science helps to understand eternity
Once we completely reject the "religious" God, and even become atheists, it is worth finding some good will in ourselves to understand the Original Being, that is, a more "scientific" God.
The path of science is from the imagination to the evidence stage. First, ideas arise, and after hypotheses are formulated, models of reality arise that validate these hypotheses. If the test result is negative, the hypothesis and related model are changed. It then starts all over again, involving the wider imagination. This is how my essenceism system was created.
By presenting essenceism, I would like to join the global exchange of scientific views. Well, in my case, it is about views that science does not currently deal with. Until now only religion has applied to them, but it does not use scientific methods. It is about logical analysis and searching for answers to such questions: Who is God, is He the Creator of the universe; and if so, how did He do it? Is He the only source of good? Is man an animal-like or creator-like being? Is there a source of evil? If so, is it personal? And so on…
Years ago, scientists from various universities and institutes created the Internet to share knowledge at a global level. This greatly improved the development of science and led to its better knowledge. As a result, I noticed that many religions still resemble ancient mythology in that they are full of myths and concepts that contradict science. In the duels between science and religion, it always turned out that science was right after all. Still, many people accept simultaneously two contradictory "truths", although the scientific one is based on knowledge, and the religious one is based on faith.
Thanks to the development of astrophysics, quantum physics, molecular chemistry, microbiology and other new branches of science, and thanks to the developed tolerance of being so-called non-believers, it is now possible to talk about topics that were previously reserved only for religious denominations. A developed democracy has opened the way to freedom of opinion, hence science is gradually replacing religion. Therefore, the inhabitants of the Earth believe more in scientific evidence than in religious miracles.
The essenceism system I use here is based on a scientific approach to religion, and it will always be so. I was largely "unlocked" by the thoughts of researchers who did not believe in current religious doctrines. However, I still see that their works are something between the formation of another religious denomination and the actual advancement of knowledge on these topics. Their doctrines, too, contain too many old concepts unacceptable to sound logic and scientific thinking. Knowing this, I decided to conduct my own independent research and logical analyzes that should lead to a proper understanding of the existence of God and eternity in man. The websites www.istota.net and www.essenceizm.pl, the book "The Touch of Eternity" and five studies on essenceism are based on this approach to religion.
The reason for not understanding eternity
For a proper understanding of the current state of humanity, it would be necessary to first make all people aware that the present reality is inconsistent with the original assumptions of the Creator. This requires an independent analysis of all phenomena that took place at the very beginning of human history and an answer to the question why the world was not created in accordance with the Creator's concept. As part of my system, I conducted such an analysis in the third book on essenceism, subtitled Evil is of this World. This was to understand the mechanisms of evil and make mankind aware of how Satan affects our fate. There I also described exactly who Satan is and how it came to be that we live now in the reality created by him. These descriptions concerned especially the fallen nature that he had acquired after him.
The implantation of a fallen nature in us can be compared to a programmer introducing a virus or malicious code into an information system. After that, the programmer no longer has to influence the destruction of each individual computer by himself, as it is done for him by a virus that is grafted onto the entire system. Therefore, Satan does not have to control individual people, because the fallen nature implanted by him penetrates human personalities quite thoroughly. Therefore, one should not wonder whether criminals like Hitler experienced the direct influence of "the prince of this world." Jesus Christ specified it in the case of Satan's influence over Jewish religious leaders. He just called him their father. The question, then, is whether we all have Satan as our father or just some particularly evil people. Unfortunately, it's the first. Although our original nature rebels against the spiritual fatherhood of Satan, the latter, which has fallen, makes us his subordinates. This condition was confirmed by Jesus on several occasions, calling Satan "the lord of this world".
There is no better explanation for the phenomenon that Satan and his demons have a destructive effect on people than by the mechanism of the fallen nature implanted in us. The interaction of the fallen Archangel and his fallen angels continues to shape part of our personality. We, living in specific conditions, are guided by this bad influence, transferring our state to everyday life. Hence, in a large part of people, along with good thoughts and desires, bad feelings, thoughts and desires are constantly functioning. Unfortunately, few of us correctly judge the effects of evil on ourselves. Most disregard this phenomenon, recognizing God's good influence on mankind rather. However, essenceism emphasizes that Satan, not God, is present in our world.
An important human feeling is the desire to be eternal. It results from our original nature, because the Creator wanted us to lead eternal life by His side. This was to be done on the basis of knowledge resulting from our original nature. The evil is that fallen nature holds in us knowledge that denies the existence of this eternity. This causes little awareness of our fundamental value. For this reason, we also do not have a proper understanding of the reality that comes from the Creator.
"Essenceism 1 - God is not from this world" (scientific understanding of God)
"Essenceism 2 - We are from this world" (understanding of man towards God)
"Essenceism 3 - Evil is from this world" (understaning of evil)
"Essenceism 4 – Vision not from this world" (understanding of salvation)
"Essenceism 5 – Eternity is not from this world"(understanding of eternity)
analytical system of understanding the existence of God, the spiritual world and man's eternity
