Understanding God's presence
Essenceism very clearly emphasizes the presence of God in the sphere beyond time and space. At the same time, it points out that He is not in the space-time of the universe. He is only indirectly in it. Indirect presence means that on Earth there are created by Him forms of energy and matter and laws derived from Him, some of which we read as His Providence. It will be mentioned in one of the chapters of this study.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, scientists introduced the concept of space-time, creating conditions for the establishment of boundary conditions for the existence of the universe. Albert Einstein and his successors presented us to the universe as an expanding structure that had its origin. It clearly separated the sphere of space-time from the sphere beyond time and space. This was the greatest discovery in the history of mankind, although not everyone is aware of it. According to essenceism, this allows us to distinguish the creative work of God from the sphere of the existence of His Personality and the Source of the origin of His Power. God's work, of course, is the universe in which we now live. At the same time, His Personality and Energy of the First Cause are filled with "His space," or sphere beyond time and space.
Time-space is relatively easy to understand by people, while understanding the sphere beyond time and space most often exceeds our human capabilities. This difficulty of understanding results from the fact that we function and reason here in conditions limited by space-time.
The metaphor of a residential building built by a well-known architect can help us understand our situation. Different people live in this building, but the architect does not live in it. It is only indirectly present there through its creative concept and the structural conditions of the building created by him. You can call them the presence of his "spirit". The effects of his vision are constantly there. However, now the architect does not control the use of the building anymore, because he lost the opportunity to influence his future. Now someone else is managing the effects of his creative thought. Therefore, he does not supervise the life of the inhabitants, he does not assess their way of life, because there are no such possibilities.
At the same time, the architect described above lives somewhere outside this building, in his living space. Surely, he slowly creates next buildings, waiting for a return to the first one. It is the same with God - the Architect of the universe.
Perhaps someday, when people fix their situation, they will welcome "Their Architect" - the Creator.
