Man towards the universe
Man's position in relation to all-creation can be better understood on the basis of two patterns of creating all things. The first of them concerns the entire universe, to which I include everything in the universe, including animals, and from which I exclude humans for now. This creation diagram shows a simple and direct transition from God's law to its embodiment as a specific being that I simply called "being." The second scheme, which in the religious description can be described with the sentence: "The word becomes flesh", concerns only man. It is a multi-step transition from the Heart of God, then through His Law, and then through the Word, which is an expression of His Desires and Will. It ends with the embodiment of His Word in the form of a "body", that is, the emergence of each new person "in His Image and likeness". This is the fundamental and at the same time colossal difference between people and all the rest of the universe. Because of this, I call man a child of God.
So who is man in relation to nature?
He is definitely its manager. He is someone who shapes and rules the world around him, no matter how he does it. It can be concluded that he aspires to be the "collective god" of the Earth. He would also like to extend his authority to further zones in the surrounding cosmos. This should lead to man becoming the master of all things.
Numerous scientific, popular science, literary and even religious studies recognize man as part of nature. For many, this concept is as obvious as absolute truth. Essenceism presents the controversial view here that it is not humanity that is part of the universe, but that the universe is part of humanity. Strictly speaking, it is part of the human environment, the physical one, because the child of God has a second, infinitely large "environment", called the sphere beyond time and space, i.e. the spiritual world.
From my system it follows that the physical universe and the spiritual world emerged from the Original Being. Therefore, descriptively, it can be said that the universe is part of it. At the same time, essenceism constantly emphasizes that in the face of all creation, man is a separate being existing in connection with the Creator. Of course, our physical body is part of nature. However, both it and the entire physical universe play only a temporal and servant role in bringing the spiritual person to perfection, that is, to take the position of the master of all creation at the side of the Creator. This statement is one of the main ideas of essenceism.
We discovered various laws that have always existed in nature. We admire the complex structures functioning in the cosmos, we learn the secrets of elementary particles and the transformation of various forms of energy. All the time it is accompanied by respect for the mysterious vastness of the universe. We feel even greater respect for the mysterious laws of the sphere beyond time and space. We are surrounded by the universe for which we are not an indifferent point in interplanetary space. It is quite the opposite. As a result of giving man a dominant position in the universe, he became responsible for his eternal existence. This was to be the case in the original plans of the Creator, and it will happen someday when the ideal world is created on Earth.
For this reason, we are all successors of the Original Being who gave meaning to the development of the universe. He created various forms of matter and life, bringing them to perfection. On their basis, we can build new, more complex structures and concepts. At the same time, starting with the creation of the first people, there was a parallel active creativity on our part. According to the Bible, the Creator, after bringing man into life, "rested", that is, as if He limited His active participation in the creation of the universe. Everything was initially prepared for the next phase - human activity. After many years, in the twenty-first century, we observe the development of civilization around us, performed exclusively by man. This is our legacy, this is our "daily bread" inherited from the Creator. We will develop His work endlessly, following His methods, for this is the role of His successors.
The Lord of all things cannot exist hidden somewhere in the recesses of the cosmos, although his physical person must mature in some place. As an eternally existing entity, man cannot be limited in his life to a scrap of the universe on planet Earth. Therefore, in the form of a spiritual person, he should move freely and unfettered throughout the entire universe. It is only necessary to bring this spiritual person to perfection.
