Hope in the scientific vision of the cosmos
Essenceism, apart from its theory of the creation of the universe, does not mind propagating a scientific vision of its origin. This is because a very significant percentage of humanity does not accept any religion, and science expects a full explanation of all phenomena observed in the universe, including its origin. As the creator of essenceism, I realize that at the moment few people will be interested in my system, and even fewer will accept it as their point of view. Essenceism deals with religious topics that science avoids. Before my system can convince a larger group of supporters, science should be constantly supported in the hope that it will someday take into account the idea of the Creator. Science can, over time, show that the actions of the First Cause are also "scientific." Hence, essenceism supports the present research of the cosmos, as it may one day bring a proper understanding of the meaning of its existence. In this spirit, I present below a number of details that complement the previous chapter. They can all point to an Intelligent First Cause.
Therefore, referring to the description of the formation of the universe from the previous chapter, it is worth suggesting some complement to scientific hypotheses that may indicate the presence of a "divine source" of this phenomenon. Namely, in the force field formed at the very beginning, now called the Higgs field, first the most fundamental particles appeared, i.e. the creative Higgs bosons. In other words, in this field some "quanta" of elementary particles appeared, the first of which appeared the mentioned boson. It had to emerge from the primeval energy that could be intentionally introduced into the emerging universe from a sphere beyond time and space. No wonder scientists called this particle "divine particle," implicitly suggesting the possibility of an unknown First Cause. Essenceism adds that the force field, which was a state created from primary energy, was a "space" generating basic interactions read by scientists using the laws of quantum mechanics. Thus, the level of credibility of the scientific version may approach the version of essenceism that tells about the emergence of the universe from Praenergia "belonging" to the Original Being.
Moving on to details, both essenceism and science argue that due to an impulse that so far eludes all scientific theories, space-time has formed extremely rapidly. It seems that according to the predicted precision of the entire process, the four most important forces have emerged: gravitational, strong, weak and electromagnetic. They all acted between elementary particles arising from energy. After all, when the last of them, the electromagnetic ones, appeared, in an equally short period of time we dealt with the so-called Big Bang, which appeared sometime after the Big Bang (this time is still called differently). The entire newly created universe was illuminated by the light of photons, which revealed a "soup" of active particles permeated with radiation. The trace of this event has reached our times as microwave background radiation.
Scientists still do not consider any intelligent plan that could stand behind such a spectacular event. For the sake of creationism, I will describe once again the course of the creation of the universe, this time a bit acrid. I will show how he supposedly "accidentally" led to the creation of a cosmos shocking us with its enormity. In the force field emerging "out of nowhere", the Higgs boson "accidentally" gave mass to elementary particles, such as quarks, which, supported by gluons, began to form the nuclei of future atoms. With the participation of the weak interaction that appeared "out of nowhere", further formation of elementary particles such as electrons, positrons, neutrinos, antineutrinos and some others took place. While the above-mentioned interactions were still "unplanned" in this diversity, the emerging origins of matter simultaneously assumed the form of the present one and of antimatter. The "accidental" annihilation left only matter with traces of antimatter. At this stage, one can already ponder the existence of "out of nowhere" dark energy filling the universe next to dark matter. Everything was accompanied by the ubiquitous gravity, which, according to science, appeared completely "by chance".
Then everything was "verifiable", that is, with the participation of scientifically inexplicable dark matter and dark energy. In the unfolding universe, due to the "random" action of gravity, the simplest atoms, i.e. hydrogen atoms, gave rise to gas clouds, which after their collapse formed stars. More complex atoms that appeared in the further process formed particles of matter and influenced the appearance of various clusters of celestial bodies, such as planets orbiting stars. This is how the galaxies were created that filled the universe. This whole supposedly "chaotic" process shows the absolute precision of its course. We can see the effects of this precision today. We experience it, for example, in the form of our precise world, the Earth. She is this final chain of "accidents," which is our physical home. Thus, in this "random" universe on one (?) Tiny planet, intelligent people appeared, who still think about the "randomness" of their existence.
Above, I have intentionally presented the present-day knowledge of the origin of the universe in a critical manner. However, I am absolutely not entitled to a more severe evaluation of the achievements of scientists. Perhaps the time has not yet come. Meanwhile, through my system I want to supplement my scientific knowledge as much as possible, focusing on searching for the right cause of the creation of the universe. I have the comfort that science does not speak about the cause of its creation, nor the purposefulness of its existence. Here I see a place for essenceism.
Humanity creates science, that is, knowledge about everything. Perhaps with time this knowledge will lead us to the Source of All Things, which in my opinion is the Original Being. I hope that will happen soon.
Sphere beyond time and space
We normally only perceive the physical or material world. We see the cosmos on a larger scale, identical with the space-time of the universe. We see, first and foremost, what holds light, what produces light, or what reflects it. But there are many things that we do not see, although they constitute the material universe. We do not see radio waves, as well as any other radiation and interactions. Those who say they can see the sun's rays also need to understand that they are only seeing the effects of their actions. The most difficult thing is that we do not see the most important physical values, such as energy or heat, but only feel their effects. The important thing is that through experimental methods we can be sure that all these physical phenomena really exist. It is a bit worse with the quantum level, as many things have not been researched yet. The same is true for dark energy and dark matter. We are pretty sure they are, but the truth is, scientists don't know how to prove their existence. This understanding of the attitude of scientists can be applied to my understanding of the existence of the Original Being. I know it exists, but I don't know how to fully prove it. However, I include him in understanding the origin of the universe and the state beyond time and space.
I suppose that in the entire cosmos only man has such a scientific and at the same time spiritual understanding of reality, that is, he is someone special. He not only knows the phenomena in the space-time of the universe, but understands them and uses them.
In addition to easily understanding physical states, we also try to understand phenomena such as love and intuition that affect our physical life, although they are not "physical" in themselves. We figuratively say that our thoughts or dreams are circulating somewhere, but we certainly do not associate this with a physical phenomenon. Does this mean that as humans we deal with states beyond time and space? Could there be something beyond the research capacity of science that does not belong to the material world and yet does exist? Yes it is.
In my analytical system, I argue that just as a physical person is related to an invisible and immaterial spiritual person, it is also the case with the universe. This means that the existence of physical space-time is inextricably linked with the existence of an unimaginably greater state beyond time and space. Thus, in the image of man, essenceism shows that the universe is stuck or "floating" in a sphere beyond time and space. At the same time, my system "sees" the Creator in this sphere as well. The term "sees" should be understood as the state in which the Original Being itself fills the entire sphere, permeates it from infinity to infinity, as if it were itself. This is His "space" from which the universe emerged.
This is the introduction to the knowledge of Original Being. This opens the way to wondering whether the realm in which He exists is also "our" realm? This is the way that essenceism has chosen. This is the basis for the claim that we are eternal.
God's presence outside the universe
Essenceism very clearly emphasizes the presence of the Original Being in the sphere beyond time and space. In contrast, He explains His absence in the spacetime of the universe, although His laws and energy fill the Earth and all other cosmos. My system calls this situation the indirect presence of the Creator in what He created. The main mistake of religion is to introduce God directly into the spacetime of the universe, which is contrary to His fundamental attributes. God can only exist as an absolute Being, unlimited, free from all barriers and not subject to the laws of space-time.
At the beginning of the 20th century, scientists introduced the concept of space-time, creating the conditions for the establishment of boundary conditions for the existence of the universe. Albert Einstein and his successors presented the universe to us as an expanding structure that once had its beginning. According to essenceism, this structure emerged from the Original Being. Everything that we know with the help of scientific instruments comes from Him. This structure is separated from the sphere that is His immediate presence, that is, from the state beyond time and space. We know well that spacetime is relatively easy for humans to accept, while understanding the sphere beyond time and space is beyond our ability. The same is true of the Creator. Its way of existence is beyond our comprehension, because we operate in conditions limited by space-time.
At the same time, our situation has yet another subtext related to the current state of our civilization. An exemplary comparison to a residential building built by an architect can help us understand it. People live in this building, but not the architect himself. However, it could be indirectly present in the life of the inhabitants through its creative concept and through the structural conditions of the building, which can be called the presence of its "spirit". The effects of his visions should therefore be at work there. Meanwhile, this architect is no longer able to control how people live there. This building was at one point given to people for their further use. And then something happened that the architect lost contact with his work. In addition, this building is now managed by someone else. Therefore, the architect does not supervise the life of the inhabitants, does not look into their windows, does not judge their way of life, because this building does not function according to his concept.
The above example for a residential building illustrates our reality. According to essenceism, it was "managed" not as envisaged in the original design of the Creator-Architect. Therefore, He cannot interfere with the lives of its inhabitants. Only when the residents of the building restore it to the state designed by the Architect, will He be able to cooperate with them. Perhaps someday, when people are ripe for this, they will invite the proper Creator to their "building", to use His work with joy and live with Him. This should be the future of this "our building" and "Our Architect".
Eternity from God for man
Essenceism has shown that it is time to better understand eternity. This is, of course, connected with the understanding of the source of eternity, i.e. the existence of the Original Being. The concept of eternity is almost the same as the concept of infinity, although eternity is related to the passage of time and infinity more to the limitlessness of space. An example combining these concepts is our eternity included in the infinite state beyond time and space.
The concept of man proclaimed by essenceism is based on an eternal bond with the Creator who, through His fatherhood, gave us His qualities. Namely, a man, receiving at birth a spiritual person from the Creator, becomes an eternal being. From that moment on, his life will last forever, although he spends the first few decades in an earthly reality. In the concept of the Original Being, human physical life should be a time of reaching perfection. Reaching this state is the proper "gateway" to eternal life with the perfect Creator.
The basic attributes of the Original Being are perfection, absoluteness and eternity. In His case, as He is the only Source Being, it is about His unique and timeless qualities. Of course, this also applies to all of His other attributes, as they are related to the main ones. The eternity of the Original Being results directly from the state of His Personality. It is stretched from infinity to infinity. It follows from this definition that there cannot be anything more eternal than His infinity. Its existence is recognized not only by scientists, but also functions in the general human consciousness.
It is worth realizing that God, regardless of various religious theories trying to define Him, is the only absolute bastion of eternity in the history of mankind. Not only believers in some God, but also those who do not believe in gods presented by religions, must admit that God is a timeless value that gives a kind of a stable starting point for our civilization. Almost everyone admits that if God exists, He should be perfect, absolute and, of course, eternal. It is His eternity that we need in the face of changes in the universe, because only He deserves to be called unchanging and perfect. The creator must be eternal, because this marks the maximum limit of our imagination. Simply put, we need this value in a world where most things are imperfect and transient. The human psyche needs absolute value, although it may be unattainable and very mysterious. Eternal, perfect and absolute God is simply necessary to us. And the Original Being in fact is like that. Needlessly, most religions create His image for their own immediate purposes.
To sum up, essenceism claims that the basic attributes of the Original Being are perfection, absoluteness and eternity. All the others result from these three main ones. It is worth understanding that God is also absolutely good, but I will write about it later. Here I focused only on eternity, which is one of his basic attributes.
Vision of eternity in the universe
Theoretically, a very large number of planets in the universe could be a place to live for people. Therefore, instead of claiming that the endless cosmos is a dead desert, it can be assumed that it is an eternal place for human development and the achievement of perfection of every human being. Essenceism puts it like that!
The only sensible answer to the question of why the universe came into being is that it was made for people. It is about the eternal environment destined by the Original Being for the proper shaping of the human race and the coming to maturity of their eternal spiritual persons. Therefore, as a result of spending their lives on our planet, people should achieve the perfection provided for beings who can live eternally with their Creator after this life. This is what our biological environment serves. Such a process can also take place throughout the cosmos on planets with the right conditions for it. Then, after gaining full maturity and after rejecting a physical person on the "native land", any spiritual person could "become physical" on any planet in space adapted to life. There, eternal spiritual persons would experience the endless adventure of life. I have written about it in many of my studies. According to essenceism, this would be a great prospect, especially if we have a relatively short period of physical life on Earth.
In my assumptions, I go even further. This is because I claim that on planets similar to Earth in space, biological life can be the same as on Earth. Also the people living on them could be exactly like us. The Original Being, or Personal First Cause, is perfect. From the beginning, He prepared a perfect concept of life for human beings. If we look like this with us, we have such organisms and such nature around us, it must be assumed that it is the final and perfect concept of the Creator. He should reproduce it elsewhere in the cosmos. From this point of view, the inhabitants of all human civilizations are the fruit of the most refined concept of a human being. There is also an argument about Father's Love. Every loving father would like to pass on to his children the best he has. It is all the more so for the Original Being, who should be the most perfect Father. It was He who gave our spiritual person His attributes adapted to the unique and eternal personality of each person. They are to be developed by us during our earthly life to the level of personal perfection. This should be the purpose of our physical life.
When it comes to existing civilizations in the universe, you do not need to imagine anything other than what we have on Earth. The existence of strange-looking aliens is more of a fairy-tale for entertainment. Note that the Earth exhibits the excellent qualities of a fully thought-out celestial body designed to nurture an infinite number of human generations. The same may be true of individual planets orbiting their stars throughout the cosmos.
There is a good chance, resulting from the calculus of probability, that there may be a lot of such "Earths", because the Creator is still active and unlimited in anything. These human-inhabited planets can be a great universal school of life, where people grow up to the perfection destined for us by God. I have no doubts that the purpose of the spiritual and eternal Original Being is to educate spiritual people, eternal like Him. Thus, physical life on individual "lands" exists so that their inhabitants come to perfection on them. Thanks to this solution, the primary spiritual world, i.e. the sphere beyond time and space, becomes a common place of eternal life for spiritual people who can come from different planets in the cosmos. It is in it that people will live "alongside" the Original Being.
I am bothered by the same question other researchers of the universe ask themselves. Why do we know nothing about the fact that there are other human civilizations in space? This is where we have a problem. It may be that only our planet has stopped developing and only on it, among millions of others, evil has arisen. Could the presence of evil be the reason for the fact that we are not aware of the existence of other life in the universe? It's a pity we don't know that. For now, there is an objective reason for the lack of knowledge about other places to live in space. The reason is clear: we just can't know about it at our current level of technology. Since we are separated from other planets inhabited by humans, distances counted in millions of light years, then communication with them and getting to know them is not possible at the current level of technology.
However, there may be an even deeper reason for the explanations given above. It results from the fact that from the beginning the Creator's goal was only one common spiritual world for all places in the cosmos where human life takes place. With such a concept, communication between places where people would only go through a short period of growth to perfection was not essential. The human body is too fragile to withstand space travel. The Creator may never have considered the movement of our individuals between planets. It made no sense to Him, since our eternal spiritual persons could move freely throughout the universe and become physical on any planet. The future for people was therefore to be situated in the spiritual world, and not on "their" planets. Thus, fully formed on Earth perfect spiritual persons can live wherever they want. After all, for their spiritual people, the whole sphere, apart from time and space, is open.
The Creator has established that each of us is an eternal partner and a beloved child for Him. We, in turn, can reciprocate this love. That is what each of us should be for Him. If this is not the case, then it is worth bringing about.
Essenceism, however, does not focus on the physical differences between the inhabitants of planets other than Earth. My system is trying to deduce whether or not there is evil on planets somewhere in the cosmos. The great hope in these assumptions is that only on our planet the ties with God were broken and the fallen world was created, being the seat of evil. Personally, I hope that on all other planets except Earth, the so-called Kingdom of Heaven has been or is currently being created. It means the world under the authority of the Original Being, that is, an environment in which there is no evil. Let me remind you that essenceism treats evil as a state inconsistent with his conception.
Summarizing a fragment of this chapter, I would like to refer to its title once again. The universe was created because the Creator needed a fully unlimited environment from the very beginning to initiate the first phase of life for His children. At the same time, the spiritual sphere functioning on the basis of reality beyond time and space is the only proper "place" of existence for the Original Being and for all other spiritual beings, including, of course, for people. Only in this dimension can we speak of the fact that people are created "in the image and likeness of God". Thus, life in His unlimited and infinite sphere is the ultimate form of human existence.
Is there any chance that such a broad vision, so far forward-looking, will be properly understood by everyone and be considered as a real picture of the universe? I hope it will, otherwise I would not create the essenceism system. One can still ask how to make this idea credible? Unfortunately, this cannot be done yet. Therefore, I am based on the fact that the Original Being has always and forever existed. Eventually, as the perfect Creator, He will achieve His goal. Thus, the vision of the universe managed by people is our destiny, even if it was to be realized only in the distant future.
