Creation and question of eternity
The present thinking is aimed at understanding the ways paths to truth, leading to the center of the human being.
Cognition and religion created by Creation, are the most immediate foundations of human creative activity. While leaving open the question of eternity and death – nothing. If you can imagine Infinity as infinity of space bubbles (free after astronomer Hawking) related to the creations or universes in the primeval nothing that have their beginning and end, then we can consider eternity as temporal or rather supertemporal integration of Creation; temporarily not limited with expanse of our universe. Eternity therefore also falls within the scope of transcendence. Eternity itself excludes the time, as we know it. This issue is in its deepest and most mysterious (real) reality of every human being, who is considering or suspecting death. The basic assumption here is that creation is – truth.
In the light of the understanding of the four paths to truth, we will need to reconsider our comprehension of the Creation. What kind of questions are opened by it. How can we even remotely identify it with the spirituality, faith and reason, love. Is it even possible to speak of one truth, even if it is universal, or should it be.
My path to experiencing and understanding of Creation, is consistent with the time and culture (civilization) environment, which I live in. But so far I could not find a record, or thought offering satisfactory scientific explanation of how to imagine the real infinity and eternity. The only information that leads to experience the Truth are Christ’s words: “The truth, that’s me.”
Transcendental spirit pervades the universe. It is therefore very tricky question of how to understand nothing. In our Universe nothing in its astronomical sense(conception?). The entire universe is woven and interwoven with light, omnipotent rays, which are largely intangible, such as neutrino, etc., primeval radiation, residual cosmic beginning, the dark matter and energy and all the other phenomena that are present in the universe and create mystery and grandeur of the universe. In such a universe, anything is possible, even “creative field” of Sir Fred Hoyle.
Universe we live in constantly creates space, it is ruled by specific, only it’s own, principles. In hypothetic “Anisotropy” universe, principles presumably operate quite differently.
Our universe is perceived as “scientific” infinity and eternity, which has its beginning and its end. Death even.
It can also merge with different cosmic formations, when our universe will expand enough. The universe was created (or formed) in the original Primeval nothing. The one in which today’s knowledge is not possible to know or detect any trends in energy and the interconnectedness of matter, forces, light rays, dark matter and other phenomena and laws specific to our universe. In the Creation and of course in the Primeval nothing communications, messages, movement of energy and other phenomena inherent only to the Creation probably exist . This original Primeval nothing is not space, environment or anything like that. This is the original infinite Primeval nothing, so I called it “The Big Primeval Nothing ” and is consistent with the notion of Infinity and Eternity in their true essence, unlimited, not by time or space. Creation can be understood as that The Big Primeval Nothing and Infinity and Eternity (Creation are the same and different at the same time..
Whatever happens in the Creation is associated with our universe in a completely specific way, one such option is contact with God. Universes are islands of space, or as the great Stephen Hawking would say, they are the Universes in bubbles. But there is no fear that something would fall over the edge, according to ancient belief in flat earth. I’m afraid Creation is not created that way. Religion, philosophy and art, love and rational knowledge, science arise, by my opinion, from just such a concept of Creation.
They are usually ignored, or even not understood by the astronomer, he cannot relate them to his rigorous scientific approach to the concept of the Creation. This is largely because the scientific presentation of the universe or Creation has specific conclusion in its absolute end of things, of both energy and matter. Few giants of astronomy only have reached with their thoughts beyond such thinking, and more and more successfully present premonition of creation with their ideas and inspiration. The turning point is full of skepticism and of denial of transcendence, it is much more optimistic and promise to humanity glorious future. Many scientists, who publicly or privately have doubts about unique creation of the Universe, have transfer this problem to infinity of Primeval nothing, where endless islands of spaces, created by Universes or any other phenomena arising from energy and matter (antienergy or antimatter etc.). Let me only mention ideas about multi universes, parallel universes, countless universes in the bubbles, anisotropic universe. These ideas have been uttered by the most prominent astrophysics and cosmologists . There have been still more reflections in this direction. Human perception of space is expanding into the real Infinity and Eternity. These huge and diverse areas of spaces in Primeval nothing could be considered as Creation. Such Creation is then, without restrictions, imbued by Infinite spirit radiating into infinity. Man was self created by the help of Infinite spirit, who hold interest in man for other values and not simply for the survival and the continuation of the genus. It is hardly possible to explain the rise of the human mind and creativity simply by Darwinism. Even though to the human perception belong as well archetypes, subconscious or trans-consciousness, primeval thoughts of forefathers and tremendous creative part of the brain, with its specific function, open spirit for the entry of quanta and DNA, which goes back to the start of life. Darwin is specifically approached by Sigmund Freud with his evolutionary pathway of human views of the world in which the animist phase was replaced by religious. Which was also replaced by the science. In animist state of mind, man ascribes power to oneself; in religious to the gods (but not quite seriously, because he kept for himself the possibility to impact after his own desire to the gods on a wide variety of ways). On the scientific view of the world is no longer room for the power of man, he has accepted his smallness and subjugated to the death and all other natural necessities . With opposition to the God and to the transcendence, Freud comes close to the horizon of Carl Marx about state of humanity.
But Sigmund Freud doesn’t close the doors toward human soul entirely; in confidence to the power of human spirit, reckoning with laws of reality, still lives part of primitive belief in allpower. This allpower of thought remained intact in one sphere of human activity: in the arts. Only in arts is still going on, for the man, prosecuted by desires to do something like fulfill them. This game creates -thanks to an artistic illusion — effective effects, as if they were something real. Rightly we are talking about “magic of art” and the artist is compared with magician. Art, which certainly did not start as “l ‘ art pour art, initially served to the predispositions, which are now largely faded. However, Freud did not close the door to the human psyche and human mental state associated with the unconscious, subconscious primeval thoughts or experience in a dream. In Freud’s analysis of human spirit transcendence doesn’t play any significant role. He remains consistent with scientific naturalism.
In almost dualistic contrast to Freud is thinking of Carl Jung, who put the human psyche and spirituality in a holistic framework, which extends almost to Adam. In his theory of collective unconscious he explains experience of love on a first sight, immediate recognition of certain symbols and meaning of certain myths, near-death experiences, creative experiences and visions of great artists, as well as the experiences of mystics of all religions. Coherence of the whole human spirit of creativity and faith, from the very beginning of mankind.
In the study, and penetration into the human soul and the spirituality, Carl Jung developed a theory of personality, split personality in the conscious mind, the personal unconscious and collective unconscious of humanity, which includes all the dead people and not only personal spirits; including the spiritual experiences of mystics of all religions, as well as the simultaneity of events in a dream. Archetypes have been one of the bases of his understanding of human and Divine.
Since I am not a scientist but an artist, I would like, having in mind the giant of Carl Jung, recall my personal experience of Creation – God. I sat on a stone fence extension to the nursery. I was expecting a great event, the birth of a child (The hospital was quarantined). The doctor who conducted the delivery approached me. He uttered his condolences on the death of my child, and to my great sadness and despair at the death of my wife. He patted me on the shoulder and walked away. At that moment I cried out loudly in the mind and begged for mercy. I realized a contact in less than one thousandth of a second (in timelessness). In that infinitely small moment of time I promised and committed to many things, by today I have fulfilled the details, which filled then my heart and thoughts. I felt the grace. In myself I felt a tremendous openness in which our universe was only a fraction of this magnificence. Shortly after this vision the doctor came back and smiled, he said the “little miracle” had happened, because my wife had suddenly “woken up” from death.
Long after this event (vision) and its outcome I wrote a poem:
Even if I’m not a blossom
Every day before my face
Comes flying a colibri
It has beautiful dark blue eyes
His wings are interwoven with silver thread
When he flaps with his wigs
mild breeze strokes my eyes, my cheeks and my mouth
After he has flown away away I see beautiful meadows
Full of flowers, beautiful grass and their tiny admirers
Sky is blue and shiny light
One day he didn’t come
Then I felt, that
Started to fade
First they turned purple
Then they become hardly visible, premonition
This beauty wasn’t lit up by the light, which turns of at the dusk behind the horizon
When the sky was covered by darkness, there were no stars on the sky
Light springs up from the sparkle, which is in me
After the colibri flew to me, this wonderful world
Of flowers and grasses came again to life in beautiful colors and light
I’m not sure
What is going to happen
If this colibri won’t fly back
Carl Jung mentioned his own experience of contact with God – Christ. Perhaps it is this experience that illuminates the human with the infinite spirit of Creation and provokes human intellect and the soul (self) in cosmic and its own depths.
Modern civilization is to be launched with a powerful “cave” paintings from about 40,000 years ago. This art is powerful because it contains all the elements of art: reality, “picture of the situation of the world” and the Creation.
This art wasn’t created suddenly, but as a synthesis of the human psyche and spirituality, which has fulfilled more than 150,000 years. Group burial of homo sapiens, excavated on Mount Carmel, is estimated to be 100.000 years old. According to experts is very nice arranged grave with personal objects laid beside death persons, what opens possibility that the man in these times could have believed in supernatural forces, transcendence and life after death. In many millennia, up to the paintings in underground caves, man wholly grew up. In already mentioned creations, exceptional knowledge of the universe, that surrounded man, can be found. We may assume that our ancestor developed a language for communication (hieroglyphics), as well as the first features of already written (drawn) messages on the walls of the caves. It would be interesting to compare the design of rectangular nets distributed to the fields, some of which are painted, with images of contemporary painter Piet Mondrian. The painter, who was aware of important aspects of cosmic reality, by that means expressed rhythm of the music.
But this magnificent inheritance hadn’t remain buried in the caves, on the contrary, it had been transferred to next generations to ripe in organized human communities; in every human activities. On that spot we can mention that according to St. Augustine, we resemble God’s image mostly by our intellect. According to the same Augustine we are also made of soul, flesh ad animal.
Art and science have created magnificent image of the man, as religion love (love for nothing) also have done. Humanity has connected all this. And thus has created conditions for penetration of holistic understanding of the man to the mystery if the Creation. Personally, I can’t imagine Infinity. My existence on the Planet is limited by biological laws and environmental changes on our planet in our Universe as well. Real eternity and infinity can be found only in the faith to the God and to the Universe consequently. Real infinity and eternity of the Creation cannot be comprehended without transcendence. Transcendence is a field where scientist cannot operate, it is not bound to the logic and to the laws of the scholars. Therefore the Creation and transcendence cannot be proved by the science, which doesn’t exclude personal inclination of particular scientists toward it.
Considerations about the Creation, which includes more than our Universe only, are on the rise. More and more scientists are not satisfied with image of our Universe as limited place any more. Consequences of such considerations are going to, under my opinion change our relation towards reality of our being. Lying eight doesn’t represent infinity in its true sense, as infinite openness, but as limitation, circling in a closed system; calculations about extent or age of the Universe define the frame of all existent; this new closed circle (frame) has only replaced closed circle of Ptolemy. Ever more I have to remember elegant interpreter of the Universe sir Fred Hoyle. His idea which made him, after promoting the “steady state universe” theory , invent field of creativity. Calculation of time and space(nothing or absolute vacuum) needed for extending of the universe according to defined conditions. Sir Fred Hoyle claims that “Steady state theory is based on the physical field which enables formation of the matter. That is nothing new, because fields already known in physics can enable formation of a new matter (ordinary gamma rays can produce electronic duos). Therefore dispute is about details not about general principle. Connection is in the possibility of calculating the dimension of forming of the matter. On the contrary, the theory also presents us with a dimension in which the universe is extending, if we only know the dimension in which the matter is formed. We can realize that way that sufficient dimension is very small; approximately one atom per year, per every voluminous unit equal to the largest edifice, build by man. [At that point I would like to notice to Hawking-Atkins thinking; they both believe , that space and time, in the process of self composing , created their own dust (Cosmic bootstrap principle). This theory looks quite hopeless, but in the light of the new concept of formation of the universe by Gabriele Gasperini and Maurizio Veniziano can be viewed from the new perspective. They claimed that universe had had its own prehistory- starting long before the moment we have called time zero by now – which leads to planckian “cosmic embryo”.
“Before big bang” scenario radically differs from the one that includes the big bang. Gasperini and Veniziano assume that universe didn’t start as very hot and tidy, twisted in a small spatial scrap, but as cold and infinite. Equations of the string theory implicate that – similar as in Guths inflation epoch-instability that dispersed “points” in the universe appeared suddenly. Therefore universe would bend more and more. Energy and temperature would rise quickly. After a certain time a millimeter long three dimensional area inside this dimensional vastness, similar to extra hot and dense patch of Guths inflation expanse, would appear. After that – as with the standard expanding of cosmology with included ordinary “Big bang” – could from this patch grow the whole universe as we know it.
View at the universe from that viewpoint or predictions or explanations respectively can show us principle how many universes and other forms in Infinity of Primeval nothing spring up. But synchronization in the case of four ways to the truth is much more complicated, as it appears. Ways are very perplexed and different at the same time. Art expresses admiration of the nature, universe, God and pure love, subconscious or conscious visions, archetypes, beauty of colors, compositions and also scepticism , desperation, obsession with technology without feelings, destruction of the nature, denying of faith into God. As artist I’m exalted with science and technology, great part of the future is directed towards scientific development. But the science is only one of the ways towards the truth. Devastation of the spirit and of being, at the people uncritically accepting only way of science and technology in their magnificence , is unimaginable, resembling man’s devastation of man and entire Planet.
“BYPRODUCTS” of science and technology can be fatal, they are sustained with emptiness of spirit of growing mass of people. In this context science restricts and announce annihilation of all existent. Together with technology, and indirectly with show business, covers art, faith, love for nothing; feeling and admiration of the Creation. As Racmaninow roguishly said in one of his interviews modern art sprang up from the heads, becoming nestling of the eggs. Love for nothing becomes play and passion, murderess if only possible, as it is showed in popular movies. Drugs are motivation for pop singers and their public, and for most of the show business; all is lie, all is shallow. Serious newspapers are becoming tabloids. Dissection of Jesus Christ is becoming an obsession of many scientists, who don’t understand or comprehend the Creation in its entire greatness and rationally inexplicable mysteriousness. Faith in Jesus Christ, love for nothing, humility and mercy, attempt of comprehending and creation of art, real admiration of the science, are the ways we need to pass. Artist must be acquainted with his way, which is knowing of the environment he lives in, of State of the world and of the creation.
Faith and love for nothing are the most intimate human feelings connected with God’s spark in him. To achieve them much of humility, mercy and pity is needed. It need to be stressed that science is not only recognition of the laws of the universe, it is also important part of human activities dealing with state of spirit and spirituality. Contact and connections of all human abilities, visions, premonitions, inspiration, creativity, love, faith in God, which contain the Creation etc., they together enable to the people to get aware of the State in which they live, picture of the State of the world and of the Creation . God.
