Units of Nothing are the Seeds of Everything

Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.

Stephen Hawking co-author of the new book, The Grand Design made that statement at some point in his illustrious scientific career. Few of us question Hawking’s desire to explore the unexplored using scientific truths to answer complicated questions about the universe and the existence of physical life. In that quest Hawking excels but he still fumbles over the question of nothing as far as a rational definition is concerned.

The nothing that spontaneously created the plethora of universes that Hawking and his co-author Leonard Mlodinow describe is indescribable in rational terms, but so are the atom as well as the cells and molecule in our bodies. We only observe and accept what we believe in terms of their abilities as well as accomplishments, but they are capable of performing incredible feats that defy rational descriptions. Those units of consciousness function in time and space but also function outside the limited boundaries of those dimensional characteristics.

Hawking’s statement about intelligence is short and to the point. All energy has the ability to change and does because it is rooted in the foundation of unpredictability units of consciousness. These fundamental units of consciousness could be called electromagnetic energy units. Each unit has the innate infinite properties of expansion, organization, and development, but they always maintains their own individuality. Regardless of what organization a unit becomes part or how it mixes, its own identity is never destroyed. These units are not personified, but they are awareized and they are the source of all kinds of consciousness, so its activities are infinite.

Their unpredictability allows them to become aspects of infinite patterns and fulfillments. They are the vitalizing force behind everything in our physical universe. They can appear in several places at once without going through space which means they can be in all places at once. They can not be recognized because they always appear as something else. They move faster than light and there are millions of them in one atom.

Each unit is aware of the reality of others and can influence others. They can move forward as well as backward in time and can more into aspects of time which are foreign to our limited awareness. All psychological structures are composed of these energy units and they all are endowed with desire and the propensity to create and expand. Since these units all exist at once they are aware of all the organize structures that they are part of, so all possible realities are connected by these units.

All matter is based on these units and their propensity for exploring all probabilities so our atomic structure is poised between probabilities created from the unpredictability of these units. Obviously then we are only aware of one small probable portion of the self we call our identity. That small probable portion is our focused reality.

All systems are being constantly expanded as well as created by these units of consciousness. The nothing that describes the spontaneous creation of our universe as well as the creation of all the universes is rooted in these units of nothing which are the seeds for everything.

In "The Grand Design" Stephen Hawking postulates that M-theory may be the Holy Grail of physics...the Grand Unified Theory which Einstein had tried to formulate, but never completed. It expands on quantum mechanics and string theories.

In my e-book on comparative mysticism is a quote by Albert Einstein: “…most beautiful and profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and most radiant beauty – which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive form – this knowledge, this feeling, is at the center of all religion.”

E=mc², Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity, is probably the best known scientific equation. I revised it to help better understand the relationship between divine Essence (Spirit), matter (mass/energy: visible/dark) and consciousness (f(x) raised to its greatest power). Unlike the speed of light, which is a constant, there are no exact measurements for consciousness. In this hypothetical formula, basic consciousness may be of insects, to the second power of animals and to the third power the rational mind of humans. The fourth power is suprarational consciousness of mystics, when they intuit the divine essence in perceived matter. This was a convenient analogy, but there cannot be a divine formula.

Great book Ron. It's sort of modern day Rumi writing in terms of expressing unity within mysticism.
Your last line (page 89) reminds me of a Gilbert Chesterton quote:
“You can only find truth with logic if you have already found truth without it."
Take care,
Hal

Hal, I'm glad you liked my book. A quote (page 58) on "nothing":

Scriptures, theologians and many religious leaders tell us what the divine is by listing grandiose attributes. Most mystics worship the personal aspects of the divine, but they also speak of what it is not. Many of them said that the divine essence is nothing, i.e. no thing, that it is immanent in all things, yet it is transcendent to everything. Mystics consider this seeming paradox to be a positive negation.

Avidya, literally non-knowledge in Sanskrit, is used in Buddhism for our “spiritual ignorance” of the true nature of Reality. Bila kaifa, literally without knowing how in Arabic, is Islam’s term for “without comparison” to describe Allah. Ein Sof, literally without end in Hebrew, is the “infinite beyond description” in the Kabbalah. Neti, neti, literally not this, not this in Sanskrit, refers to “unreality of appearances” to define Brahman. In via negativa, the literal way of negation in Latin, God is “not open to observation or description.”

Thanks Ron. I did read that section in your book.
From my 2008 book, Spirit Songs
here's a little about Nothing:

Nothing Springs Into Life
And Forms Another Symbol Of God.

Nothing Creates Itself On A Blank Page and Becomes A Work Of Art.

Nothing Shapes Space With Dark Matter And Consciousness Fills Itself With Mystery.

Nothing Becomes One And Earth Moves
To The Music Of Eternity.
